Formatted Contents Note:
Your brain is not for thinking -- You have one brain (not three) -- Your brain is a network -- Little brains wire themselves to their world -- Your brain predicts (almost) everything you do -- Your brain secretly works with other brains -- Brains make more than one kind of mind -- Our brains can create reality.
Summary, etc.:
Have you ever wondered why you have a brain? Let renowned neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett demystify that big gray blob between your ears. In seven short essays (plus a bite-sized story about how brains evolved), this slim, entertaining, and accessible collection reveals mind-expanding lessons from the front lines of neuroscience research. You'll learn where brains came from, how they're structured (and why it matters), and how yours works in tandem with other brains to create everything you experience. Along the way, you'll also learn to dismiss popular myths such as the idea of a "lizard brain" and the alleged battle between thoughts and emotions, or even between nature and nurture, to determine your behavior.
