New Science ebook: Brain Cuttings: Fifteen Journeys Through The Mind
[Image too large. Please re-size.]
The human brain has long been a mystery, but twenty-first century science is beginning to reveal some of its inner workings. With microscopes and brain scans, with psychological experiments and breakthroughs in genetics, neuroscientists are developing new theories about every aspect of our minds--from the nature of consciousness to the causes of disorders like autism and schizophrenia. Brain Cuttings takes readers on fascinating explorations of the frontiers of research, shedding light on our innermost existence--the speed of thought, our perception of time, the complex flashes of electricity that give rise to fear and love.
"Carl Zimmer takes us behind the scenes in our own heads. He has ferreted out all the most wondrous, bizarre stories and studies and served them up in this delicious, sizzling, easy-to-digest platter of neuro-goodness."
– Mary Roach, author of Packing for Mars and Stiff
Available at Kindle, B&N, Mobipocket.
