Redesign My Brain follows Canadian-born Australian Todd Sampson as he attempts to expand the capabilities of his brain.
That very notion may sound utterly ridiculous however pioneering neuroscience and technology is putting us on the doorstep of being able to "redesign" our brains. This documentary is split into three sections:
1 Make Me Smarter - Michael Merzenich, a leading neuroplasticity scientist shows how he can radically improve Todd's cognitive ability which will allow him to think faster and have a better memory.
2 Make Me Creative - Todd attempts to train his brain to be more creative.
3 Mind Over Matter - To test his newfound skills Todd is chained up blindfolded and dropped underwater to see if he can escape.
