How the Brain's Flaws Shape Our LivesBook - 2011
Neuroscientist Dean Buonomano illuminates the causes and consequences of the brain's imperfections in terms of its innermost workings and its evolutionary purposes. He then examines how our brains function--and malfunction--in the digital, predator-free, information-saturated, special-effects-addled world we have built for ourselves.
