FROM THIS EPISODE

We examine the surprising effect that your expectations can have on the people around you. We'll hear how people's expectations can influence how well a rat runs a maze. Plus, the story of a man who is blind and says expectations have helped him see. This journey is not without skeptics. We'll hear from them, and from neuroscientists who explain the profound effect others' expectations can have on your physiology.
