Series Redesign My Brain With Todd Sampson ; Series 1, Episode 1
Summary See Australian television personality Todd Sampson put brain training to the test as he undergoes a radical brain makeover in a three-part documentary series on the revolutionary new science of brain plasticity. The cutting edge science has found that anyone can become smarter, improve their memory and reverse mental ageing with the right brain training. It can turn an ordinary brain into a super brain in just three months. In a television first, Redesign My Brain takes viewers on an inspirational journey as Sampson learns first-hand how neuroplasticity can radically improve a healthy brain. Along the way he learns to juggle, overcomes a fear of confinement, learns to fly a helicopter using only his mind, discovers the power of visualization, creates an installation masterpiece and represents Australia in the brainiest competition on the planet - the World Memory Championships. In its dramatic conclusion, Sampson must draw on all his new skills to survive a death-defying feat. In the opening episode, a pioneer in the neuroplasticity revolution, Michael Merzenich, mentors Sampson, showing him how to radically improve his cognition by turbo charging his thinking speed, attention and memory. Sampson discovers that age need not result in mental decline, which depends on how we use our brains. PRODUCTION DETAILS: Produced by Mindful Media in association with ABC and Screen Australia.
