How does a three-pound mass of cells and gray matter interpret and store billions and billions of sensations from light, sound, touch, and smell and make sense of them? How do the firings of 100 trillion synapses turn into deeply felt emotions? How do we become--ourselves? With a head for facts and figures, a feel for clarity, and a voice filled with infectious enthusiasm, author, neuroscientist, and director of the Laboratory for Perception and Action at Baylor College of Medicine David Eagleman takes the listener on an in-depth introduction to the world of brain science. Eagleman is especially interested in taking us to the frontiers of his discipline with fascinating discussions of advanced surgery, robotics, and cryogenics. An excellent companion to the 2015 six-part PBS series. B.P. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2016]
