Over 90 percent of our daily actions are done unconsciously – by an “auto-pilot“ in our head. AUTOMATIC BRAIN takes a look at Martha´s and Jake´s autopilots, two people who cross their path by chance. Like all of us are their actions are steered by unconscious circuits: from brushing the teeth, to what we wear, from the way we drive the car, to one of the most important decisions in our life: whom we fall in love with. The truth is: our reasoning is easily overwhelmed and has very little impact on our decisions.
