Hacking the human brain: Can we trust our own thoughts?

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — In this edition we tell you about a breakthrough in medical technology. A paralysed Frenchman has been able to walk again, thanks to a team of experts based in Grenoble and their revolutionary brain-controlled “exoskeleton”.

Plus, we speak to Moran Cerf, a neuroscientist from Northwestern University on how and why people believe, perceive, experience and decide. But his findings come with a warning: do not trust your own brain! And in Test 24, we tell you about Guerlain’s Mindscent, a new sensory motion-led experience to help you find the perfect perfume.
