Brain Games  腦力大挑戰 4

by Ivy Liu

Jason Silva and experts on the show unlock the wonders and science behind the brain.
節目裡的傑森.席爾瓦與專家們解開大腦背後的驚奇與科學基礎。

  The human brain is capable of doing some extraordinary things. For example, it can solve complex problems and remember vast amounts of information. However, it can also fool you into thinking you saw something that wasn’t actually there, like a ghost. On a brand-new season of Brain Games by National Geographic Channel (NGC), host Jason Silva explores the science behind the many-splendored brain.
  First, hidden camera social experiments are shown in an episode, and then scientific experts are brought in to explain the results and uncover truths about the brain. The Emmy-nominated television series lets viewers participate in the games that it has on both the show and on the web so that they can follow along. By taking a look at why we behave the way we do, Brain Games shows us helpful ways to understand and make the most of our brains in our everyday lives.
  In one episode, NGC tackles the two halves of the brain to see how each side operates and what they really control. The episode then puts viewers through a series of games and experiments to see whether the left brain is truly the center of logic and the right brain is indeed the center of creativity. Not only are viewers tested on their creativity and logic through optical illusions, but their rhyming abilities are also assessed. Are you interested in finding out more about yourself? Then tune in to NGC this month and check out Brain Games to see whether you are a left-brain or a right-brain thinker.

腦力大挑戰 4
節目裡的傑森.席爾瓦與專家們解開大腦背後的驚奇與科學基礎。
  人類的大腦有能力執行一些非凡的事情。舉例來說,它可以解決複雜的問題並記住大量的信息。然而,它也可以欺騙你,讓你以為看到了實際上不在那裡的某東西,像是鬼魂。由國家地理頻道製作的新一季單元《腦力大挑戰 4》中,主持人傑森.席爾瓦探索奇妙大腦背後的科學基礎。
  首先,以隱藏式攝影機進行的社會實驗在某一集中播出,接著由科學專家來解釋各項結果並揭開大腦的真相。這個艾美獎提名的電視系列節目讓觀眾們參與遊戲,而遊戲會於節目中和網路上播出,這樣觀眾就可以一起同樂。藉由看看為什麼我們會做出那樣的行為,《腦力大挑戰 4》提供我們一些有幫助的方法來了解大腦並在日常生活中充份利用我們的大腦。
  在某一集當中,國家地理頻道分析大腦左右半球,看看每一半球如何運作以及它們真正掌管的是什麼部份。接著該集透過一系列的遊戲與實驗讓觀眾了解左腦是否真的掌管邏輯,右腦是否確實掌管創造力。遊戲與實驗不僅透過視覺錯覺測試觀眾的創造力和邏輯,也評估他們的押韻能力。你有興趣更了解自己嗎?那就鎖定本月的國家地理頻道《腦力大挑戰 4》單元,看看你是左腦思考者還是右腦思考者。
