Discovery Science kicks off new series ‘Re-Design My Brain’ on 19 Oct

MUMBAI: The fastest growing science
on the planet, brain plasticity will
revolutionise how we live in the
future. It has the potential to cure
learning and mental disorders, such as
OCD, bipolar disorder, addiction, ADD,
autism and some dementias. Moreover,
its rapid results deliver benefits
regardless of age. But how can it
improve the lives of ordinary people?
In a new series on Discovery Science
called ‘Redesign My Brain’, the
channel puts brain training to test.
The science of neuroplasticity has
found that with specific training
anyone can become smarter, increase
their memory capacity, and reverse
mental ageing. Presented by
Australian television personality Todd
Sampson, the show takes viewers on
an inspirational journey to learn how
neuroplasticity can radically improve a
healthy brain.
Kicking off on 19 October, the show
airs Monday to Friday at 10 pm.
In a television first, the series
follows Sampson from Sydney to
London, Germany to California in a
three‐month scientifically endorsed
brain‐training programme. It is a life‐
changing adventure to discover what
the latest neuroscience has to offer.
Under the guidance of the world’s top
scientists, Sampson spends 12 mind‐
expanding weeks learning to train his
brain to improve his cognition, his
creativity and the connection between
mind and body. He masters skills to
improve his mental speed, attention,
memory, creativity, innovation,
lateral thinking, body intelligence,
visualisation and emotional
In each episode, he trains with the
world’s leading researchers who push
him to his limits and beyond. They
include renowned American
neuroscientist, Michael Merzenich, a
pioneer of the brain‐plasticity
revolution; James Kaufman, also from
the US and a global leader in the world
of creativity research; and top
Australian sports scientist David
Martin. He learns the secrets of
geniuses, who reveal how they have
developed their own super brains.
Sampson is tested, scanned, prodded,
pushed and probed then tested again.
His brain performance is regularly
‘mapped and tested’ to measure
changes and the results are revealed
using state‐of‐the‐art CGI graphics.
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
visualisation, 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.
