Summary Research in neuroscience shows that the role played by the conscious mind is much smaller than was previously thought, which raises the question: Are we in control of our mind, or is the mind in control of us? This program reveals the surprising dominance of the unconscious mind in how we humans perceive and react to the world around us, influencing everything from what we eat to who we fall in love with. Explaining what's behind gut instinct and how the establishment of new neural networks puts us on automatic pilot, the video also explores the possibility of harnessing the power of the subconscious mind
