Our brain is a supercomputer inside our skull. It processes facts and faces, controls our senses and motor functions, it stores huge amounts of data, and makes decisions - all the time. That’s high demand and quite a lot of pressure. No wonder that once in a while it gets tired of it, drops the mic and lets autopilot take over. Today’s UDLS will show how this autopilot leads to some psychological phenomenons that can either mislead us into nonrational decisions, or produce pretty fascinating outcomes. So gather around and let’s have a look at our wonderous brain.
