The Tell-Tale Brain: A Neuroscientist's Quest for What Makes Us Human (Audiobook)

The Tell-Tale Brain: A Neuroscientist's Quest for What Makes Us Human (Audiobook) by V. S. Ramachandran
Unabridged edition 2011 | 13 hours and 4 minutes | ISBN: 1452650640 | MP3, 32 kbps; stereo | 185 MB
Genre: Neuropsychology | Read by: David Drummond | Language: English

V. S. Ramachandran is at the forefront of his field—so much so that Richard Dawkins dubbed him the "Marco Polo of neuroscience." Now, in a major new work, Ramachandran sets his sights on the mystery of human uniqueness. Taking us to the frontiers of neurology, he reveals what baffling and extreme case studies can teach us about normal brain function and how it evolved. Synesthesia becomes a window into the brain mechanisms that make some of us more creative than others. And autism—for which Ramachandran opens a new direction for treatment—gives us a glimpse of the aspect of being human that we understand least: self-awareness.
