Admit it. When you hear "neuroscience," you expect something abstract and remote, very complex, of little practical use. But this time? It's personal.   National Geographic makes YOU the test subject of an array of astonishing experiments. Your brain is going to be stimulated, fooled, and ultimately amazed, as scientists and other experts show you how this three-pound blob of gray matter makes you, you.
