With the help of a scientist who wields a hammer, Jennifer Aniston and general anesthesia, Professor Marcus du Sautoy is in search of answers to one of the greatest mysteries of science: how do we know who we are?

While the thoughts that make us feel like we know ourselves are easy to use, which are very difficult to explain. Therefore, in order to find out where they come from, Marcus is subjected to a series of survey experiments.

He learns how old our self-consciousness emerges and whether other species share this trait. Then have your mind scrambled for a cutting edge experiment in anesthesia.

Having survived that test, Marcus is an experience out of the body in an attempt to locate his true self. And in Hollywood, he learns how celebrities are helping scientists to understand the microscopic activity of our brain.
Finally, participates in a mind-reading experiment that both helps to explain and alter radically their understanding of who he is.
