Eagleman

The Secret Lives of the Brain

Think 2 Comments 3

Hour 2: From the archives – What is your brain really doing when you think it’s busy being you? We found out last summer with David Eagleman who directs the Laboratory for Perception and Action and the Initiative on Neuroscience and Law at Baylor College of Medicine. His most recent book is “Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain” (Pantheon, 2011).

    I can’t tell you how much I wish I was listening to this program live! My name is James, I’m an undergraduate Anthropology student at UNT in Denton and I am ardently interested in the topic. I found myself delighted to hear opinions resonating so closely with those in my own circle of friends, and thus look forward to reading David’s book. It seems to me, however, that these recent breakthroughs in understanding ourselves as human beings more holistically, shed light on the inefficiency, or rather inexpediency of our current social structure. Therefore, I would very much like to know how David would use his understanding of Humanity to influence or perhaps invent a more ideal society.
