The new book, This is Your Brain on Sports, gets inside the minds of the players on the field, the fans in the stands, and the coaches on the sidelines. NPR's Audie Cornish talks with Tufts psychologist Sam Sommers and Jon Wertheim of Sports Illustrated about what sports tell us about how we think.
