The Hidden Brain
- How Our Unconscious Minds Elect Presidents, Control Markets, Wage Wars, and Save Our Lives
- By: Shankar Vedantam
- Narrated by: Steve West
- Length: 10 hrs and 40 mins
The "hidden brain" is Shankar Vedantam's shorthand for a host of brain functions, emotional responses, and cognitive processes that happen outside of our conscious awareness, but that have a decisive effect on how we behave. The hidden brain has its finger on the scale when we make all of our most complex and important decisions - it decides who we fall in love with, whether we should convict someone of murder, or which way to run when someone yells "fire!"
