This week, Science Night dives into the world of pets. Up first is another installment of Nature‘s “Pets: Wild At Heart” series, exploring how pets experience the world. Then, NOVA goes back into pet history for a look at civilizations that mummified animals. Finish the night a look at the unconscious brain with David Eagleman.
In a program packed with incredible filming techniques, from Schlieren photography that makes smells visible, to moving X-rays, ultra slow-motion, and ultraviolet vision as well as HD horsecams and doggycams, discover how our pets experience the world through their astonishing senses and hidden channels of communication.
NOVA Animal Mummies at 8 p.m.

Dr. Eagleman explores the unconscious brain and reveals that everything from our movements, to our decisions, to our behavior is largely controlled and orchestrated by an invisible world of unconscious neural activity.
