They all hinge on secrets hidden deep inside the human brain. The fact is that history is riddled with examples of people being fooled by simple tricks designed to confuse the human brain. The question is why do they work and why do we keep falling for similar deceptions?

It turns out that when it comes to remembering any event, no matter how mundane or how monumental, our ability to recall the past is distorted.

Using a combination of magic tricks, psychological experiments, and stories from history, we'll learn how and why our brain gets it wrong, and learn a few tricks to help you better separate fact from fiction in your daily life.|
