The Tell-Tale Brain: A Neuroscientist’s Quest for What Makes Us Human
A story about the neural basis of the processes taking place in the human brain which distinguish humans from the animal world. According to the author, a neurologist and a brain expert, mirror neurons responsible for the ability to understand intentions and imitate other people determine the emergence and development of language, and, thus, the broadly defined culture. V.S. Ramachandran explains the mechanisms of visual perception and aesthetics, synesthesia, autism, self-awareness, and the feeling of leaving one's own body, and documents his reflections with descriptions of specific, fascinating medical cases.
Keywords: brain, mind, consciousness, mirror neurons, autism, language, the principles of aesthetics.
