The Emmy(R) Nominated Series "BRAIN GAMES" Returns with an All-New Season of Mind Blowing Science, Illusions and Experiments Monday, January 13 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on the National Geographic Channel

Immediately Following "Brain Games" at 10PM ET/PT, NGC Premieres New Series "Duck Quacks Don't Echo" Featuring Co-hosts Michael Ian Black, Tom Papa, & Seth Herzog

(WASHINGTON, D.C. - December 19, 2013) Earlier this year, audiences around the world had their minds manipulated by a new series the critics called "tremendous fun." Now, Brain Games is back for an all-new season of interactive illusions, challenges and experiments that showcase the extraordinary nature of the human brain, beginning Monday, January 13 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on the National Geographic Channel. Then following the season premiere of Brain Games, don't miss the new series debut of Duck Quacks Don't Echo at 10PM ET/PT.

Building off of last season's success, which included setting a record as the highest rated series launch in National Geographic Channel's history and an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Informational Series or Special, the second season of Brain Games (@BrainGames) explores a new array of topics on how we see, process and think about the world around us - with episodes devoted to attraction, trust, competition, colors, stress and more. The new season of Brain Games will also premiere internationally on National Geographic Channel in 170 countries and 48 languages in February.

Compiling the latest research in neuroscience and psychology, Brain Games delves deeper inside your mind with a carefully crafted slate of mind-bending experiments that will keep you guessing, including black-and-white photographs that appear in color; levitating a random volunteer; and perfectly predicting not only your age, but what characteristics you find attractive.

Idea DJ and "wonder junkie" Jason Silva (@JasonSilva) returns as host, guiding viewers through the twists and turns of our gray matter with a series of "man on the street" experiments designed to surprise and excite. A part-time filmmaker, Jason's series of "Shots of Awe" - noncommercial micro-documentaries exploring the co-evolution of human and technology - continue to inspire millions of viewers. His latest effort, "Existential Bummer," recently went viral, with more than 2 million views to date.

"Brain Games is the ABCs of perception. It's the ABCs of how your brain works," said Silva. "With brand new puzzles, brain hacks, illusions and mind-games, we're going to awaken your incredible senses and uncover the mysteries of the most complex object in the known universe, and how seeing isn't always believing."

NGC continues to build upon franchises that complement hit series Brian Games. New series Duck Quacks Don't Echo - with cohosts Michael Ian Black (@michaelianblack), Tom Papa (@tompapa), and Seth Herzog (@Thezog) - puts an entertaining spin on assessing the validity of weird, unusual and over-the-top hypotheses through a series of interactive, original scientific tests. Hosted by Jake Porway (@jakeporway), The Numbers Game, currently in production of its second season, looks at how science and statistics may hold the keys to a longer, wealthier, calmer life.

And now... the answer to our BRAIN GAME... THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE YOUR AGE IS ...

6 words or less - Under 30 years old

7-10 words - 30-40 years old

11 words or more - 40+ years old

How were we able to predict your age based on a simple game? Our brains process language and acquired knowledge in a way that makes them particularly resistant to decay, so as we age, our vocabulary increases, making us better at these types of word puzzles. And by the way, you can make over 200 other words from the words "pay attention." Crazy, right?

Season Two Premiere Episodes Include...

BRAIN GAMES: In Living Color Monday, January 13, 2014, 9:00 PM ET/PT Color is such a big part of our world, yet we often take it for granted. Why do we associate certain colors with certain things? And do we really see every color of the rainbow, or is our world just a pigment of our imagination? We'll show you when it comes to processing colors, things aren't always as simple as black and white.

BRAIN GAMES: Laws of Attraction Monday, January 13, 2014, 9:30 PM ET/PT (with a special Valentine's Day encore on Feb. 10 at 9:30) Why do you like what you like? Out of the billions of people in the world -- what is the hidden formula that makes you find some people especially attractive? Do you have a very specific taste or type? It may surprise you to learn that most of what you call "attractive" is just a construct created by your brain, proving that attraction, relationships, and love-at-first sight feelings are all in your head.

BRAIN GAMES: Trust Me Monday, January 20, 2014, 9:00 PM ET/PT How trusting you are says a lot about you as a person, especially when it seems like everything - commercials, politics, online dating - is designed to deceive your brain. So how do you maintain a level of trust in an untrustworthy world? How do you know who to trust? This episode will show you why it pays to be more trusting of others and a little less trusting of your own brain.

BRAIN GAMES: Battle of the Ages Monday, January 20, 2014, 9:30 PM ET/PT It may surprise you to learn that your brain doesn't always act its age. In a series of experiments that pit younger participants against older ones, you'll see whether an old dog can still learn new tricks and discover that watching Brain Games can actually make your brain younger (really!).

BRAIN GAMES: Stress Test Monday, January 27, 2014, 9:00PM ET/PT In this episode, you'll see how your brain manages stress and how stress also manages you. From traffic jams to screaming babies, angry bosses to bill payments, you're surrounded by stress everyday. But stress has a purpose, and you'll discover why it's a good thing in many situations, even though it can overwhelm you. But don't let that stress you out! Through a series of interactive games and experiments, you'll discover how stress works - and how to handle it better.

Brain Games is produced by National Geographic Television (NGT) in association with Atomic Entertainment for National Geographic Channels. Jerry Kolber is executive producer. For NGT, Pamela Wells is executive producer. For NGC, Michael Kovnat is executive producer; Lynn Sadofsky is vice president, production; Alan Eyres is senior vice president, production & development; executive in charge of production is Heather Moran; and Howard T.
