The Brain with David Eagleman
Episode 1: Messing with Reality

On Oct. 14, 2015, at 10pm Eastern Time I will be featured on the new PBS documentary 'The Brain with David Eagleman'. The title of this episode is 'Messing with Reality'. Check out a clip at: PBS: The Brain, Episode 1.

This part of the documentary focuses on a project from my lab at UCI that investigates how the brain changes in order to deal with an extreme alteration of visual input - a complete left-right reversal of the visual world! The filming was done in my house and in a hedge maze on UCI campus nearby with my friend and colleague Dr. Brian Barton in the vision-reversing prism goggles. It should be quite entertaining!
