Dara is joined by his regular team and leading science guests Professor Noel Sharkey and Professor Bruce Hood as he looks inside our heads to explore how much we know about our brains and how much our brains give away about us.
Science journalist Alok Jha goes to Pittsburgh to test whether a computer can actually reach into his mind and read his thoughts.
In the studio Dara takes control of Professor Mark Miodownik's brain to demonstrate how illusions and machines can be used to manipulate our minds, and Dr Helen Czerski goes to Texas to investigate a new theory that our weather is being influenced by a mysterious force.
