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. At the end of this training, Sampson must draw on his new skills to survive a Houdini style, death defying feat.
Episode One –
In episode one, Sampson is mentored to radically improve his cognition by turbo charging his thinking speed, attention and memory. Working in a special “gym for the brain”, he must complete computer-based brain exercises for at least 30 minutes a day. He learns to juggle and the secrets of how magicians use science to exploit gaps in our attention. An Australian memory champion teaches Todd the tools that help him prepare to represent Australia at the World Memory Championship in London.
