Mind Over Matter

New Orleans Saints NFL quarterback Drew Brees puts his brain to the test with a series of mental challenges exploring how everyday superhumans have hacked their brains and how we can train our own minds to do as we want. Games include Draft Day, in which Brees tests his reaction time and cognitive flexibility, and a game of hand-eye coordination and perception. Actress Ginnifer Goodwin makes an appearance to give an example of bimanual interference, mentalist Lior Suchard stuns Brees by predicting his every move, and then Brees takes on his own brain strength in the Gauntlet's mental obstacle course.
