Livewired : the inside story of the ever-changing brain / David Eagleman.

By: Eagleman, David [author.]
Material type: TextTextPublisher: New York : Pantheon Books, [2020]Edition: First editionDescription: vii, 310 pages : illustrations ; 25 cmContent type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 9780307907493 :; 030790749X :Subject(s): Brain | Neuroplasticity | Learning -- Physiological aspectsAdditional physical formats: Online version:: LivewiredDDC classification: 612.8/2 LOC classification: QP376 | .E254 2020Summary: "The magic of the brain is not found in the parts it's made of but in the way those parts unceasingly reweave themselves in an electric living fabric. And there is no more accomplished and accessible guide than renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman to help us understand the nature and changing texture of that fabric. With his hallmark clarity and enthusiasm he reveals the myriad ways that the brain absorbs experience: developing, redeploying, organizing, and arranging the data it receives from the body's own absorption of external stimuli, which enables us to gain the skills, the facilities, and the practices that make us who we are. Eagleman covers decades of the most important research into the functioning of the brain and presents new discoveries from his own research as well: about the nature of synesthesia, about dreaming, and about wearable devices that are revolutionizing how we think about the five human senses. Finally, Livewired is as deeply informative as it is accessible and brilliantly engaging"-- Provided by publisher.
