Book Description Ecco Press, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. With a Foreword by Steven PinkerIn Tales from Both Sides of the Brain, Michael S. Gazzaniga tells the story of his passionate, entrepreneurial life in science and his decades-long journey to understand how the separate spheres of our brains communicate and miscommunicate their separate agendas. From his time as an ambitious undergraduate at Dartmouth, as a member of its now famed Animal House fraternity, and his life as a diligent graduate student in California to the first experiments he conducted in his own lab; from meeting his first split-brain patients and his collaboration with esteemed intellectuals across disciplines, Gazzaniga recounts the trajectory of his discoveries. In his engaging and accessible style, he paints a vivid portrait not only of his discovery of split-brain theory, but also of his comrades-in-arms the many patients, friends, and family members who have accompanied him on this wild ride of intellectual discovery. The idea that one skull can house two minds, each with a measure of autonomy, has also given way to the idea that we all have multiple minds operating as a confederation, according to Gazzaniga. How this system creates a seemingly unified mind . . . remains a compelling question. New York Times Book Review Tales will be cataloged as scientific autobiography. . . . But it is as much a book about gratitude for the chance to study a subject as endlessly fascinating as the brain, for the author s brilliant colleagues and . . . for the patients who taught him . . . so much. Wall Street Journal The personal story of a genius famous for one of the rare major discoveries ever made out in the still vast, still baffling terra incognita of the human brain, namely, the split-brain phenomenon. Tom Wolfe, author of The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test and The Right Stuff. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780062228857
