Read The Brain: The Story of You Online Free - Locked in the silence and darkness of your skull, your brain fashions the rich narratives of your reality and your identity. Join renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman for a journey into the questions at the mysterious heart of our existence. What is reality? Who are “you”? How do you make decisions? Why does your brain need other people? How is technology poised to change what it means to be human? In the course of his investigations, Eagleman guides us through the world of extreme sports, criminal justice, facial expressions, genocide, brain surgery, gut feelings, robotics, and the search for immortality. Strap in for a whistle-stop tour into the inner cosmos. In the infinitely dense tangle of billions of brain cells and their trillions of connections, something emerges that you might not have expected to see in there: you.

This book takes you to limbo. The materials, hypotheses and theories provided leaves you wondering and wondering.
Could you imagine hearing through your tongue or seeing with your ears? This sentence wasn't a hypothesis or theory, it was fact being already performed on real humans.

For those who read books about the brain, Eagleman's book might be a bit too 'basic', only scratching the surface of neuroscience. But if you are looking for a well written & accessible introduction into 'the workings of the brain', this is definitely a great book to start with.

Eagleman is quite an entertaining and passionate educator/writer/neuroscientist. His book The Brain: The Story of You is a fun and informative cursory exploration into the 'science' of who we are as intelligent, social, complex, and conscientious beings - well, most of anyway. I guess you could s...

I didn't learn a single new thing about the brain in this book -- but that's not a criticism.
It simply means I've been reading a lot of brain books in recent years (and writing articles about the research), so I was eager to see how one of my favorite neuroscientists, David Eagleman, did on this...

"The strange computational material in our skulls is the perceptual machinery by which we navigate the world, the stuff from which decisions arise, the material from which imagination is forged. Our dreams and our waking lives emerge from its billions of zapping cells"
A fun, entertaining and enli...

Good introduction to the brain for people with no knowledge of science or neuroscience. I was hoping for something a little more in depth.

"O Cosmos do Nosso Interior”, assim se poderia chamar “The Brain: The Story of You” (2015), porque assume proximidade com a série “Cosmos”, desde logo por surgir como série (6 episódios), seguindo-se como livro, e ainda por contar com um cientista que, à semelhança de Carl Sagan, é também um bril...

کتاب، در نوع خودش، یعنی معرفی مقدماتی به هدف ترویج علم، یک نمونهی واقعاً موفق بود. خواننده رو به نورولوژی به شدت علاقهمند میکنه، ضمن این که وارد جزئیات تخصصی نمیشه. خیلی لذت بردم.

В результате у них сформировалось «неизбирательное дружелюбие».
