NOVA Science Now: How Does The Brain Work? like National Geographic's Brain Games shows how the brain can be fooled if we lose concentration. Brain Games does the same thing. Both use tricks to show how easy it is to fool someone. Neither DVD set gives the information I want to know about the human brain.
Instead I recommend NOVA's Secrets of the Mind hosted by Dr. V.S. Ramachandran, which goes much deeper into subjects such as phantom limb syndrome,intense spiritual experiences and how the brain rewires itself. See my review of NOVA Secrets of the Mind.

This DVD can be used to expand your own knowledge, your children's knowledge or as a tool in education, substance abuse counseling or mental health education and treatment.

I was hoping this would be a basic explanation of how the brain works. The video explains various individual kinds of mental events -- such as how we are fooled by magicians -- in an interesting way.

So, how could it be anything but interesting. I use this in class while I am teaching psychology, and it is an asset to my course. I recommend it highly.
