About the book

The brain remains a mystery to us. How can a three-pound mass of jelly that can fit inour palm imagine angels, contemplate the meaning of infinity, and even question its own place in thecosmos? Renowned neuroscientist Prof. V.S. Ramachandran takes us on a fascinating journey intothe human brain by studying patients who exhibit bizarre symptoms and using them to understand thefunctions of a normal brain. Along the way he asks big questions: How did abstract thinking evolve?What is art? Why do we laugh? How are these hardwired into the neural mechanisms of the humanbrain, and why did they evolve? Brilliant, lucid, and utterly compelling, The Tell-Tale Brain is a pathbreakingbook from one of the leading neuroscientists.
