Movies About the Human Brain
Endorsed by Sioux Falls Feminists

Sioux Falls Feminists recommends the following documentaries that pertain to the structure and workings of the Human Brain. They will help you understand yourself as well as others, including those who are trying to manipulate you and intimidate you.

The key piece of information to be gotten from these movies is that the brain fools you. The brain does not present you with reality as it really is, it presents you with a modified version of reality that is best for helping you survive and breed. All the information coming into you from your senses is preprocessed by your unconscious mind and then selected parts and modified parts of reality are presented to your conscious mind as reality. It is not. If your conscious mind received everything you sensed you would be overloaded and unable to function and unable to make decisions. The information overload would simply be to much for your conscious mind to sort through in time to be useful.

Evolution's objective is what's important here. Surviving and breeding are the main objectives, not an exacting view of reality. Movies are a perfect example of this. Motion pictures present 24 pictures per second to our senses and our unconscious mind blends these images together so we seem to see continuous motion. But it is not. It is one single picture every 1/24th of second (about 42 milliseconds). Your brain constructs the reality, but it really is not real, the motion is "faked". Many optical illusions depend on this effect. The brain is easily fooled. Magicians use that fact all the time.

The movies are all available from Amazon.com but you are free to obtain them from many other sources. Amazon offers them on their website along with many alternate sources, often less expensive. You are free to choose whatever source you please. The movie links on the following pages point to the movie location at Amazon.

Sioux Falls Feminists recommends the seven documentaries, three books, and one magazine article on the following 11 pages:
