Inhoud

Introducing Mind & Brain examines a profound and mysterious puzzle: how does the biological tissue that makes up the brain give rise to the activities that our culture refers to as the Mind? How does the three pounds of electric sponge stowed in the top of your head allow you to experience enchantment in front of an evening landscape, and then make you remember the shopping, say Damn! and head off to the supermarket?
This book explains what the sciences have to say about planning and action, language, memory, attention, emotions and vision. It traces the historical development of ideas about the brain and its function from antiquity to the age of neuro-imaging.
Through a clear combination of words and images, writer Angus Gellatly and award-winning artist Oscar Zarate invite the reader to take a fresh look at the nature of mind, consciousness and personal identity.
