The Human Mind
The most complex and mysterious object in the universe is unprepossessing in appearance. It is covered in a dull grey membrane and resembles a gigantic, convoluted fungus. Its inscrutability has captivated scientists, philosophers and artists from the ancient Egyptians to modern times. It is, of course, the human brain.
In this accessible and entertaining book, which accompanies a major BBC1 television series, Robert Winston tells us how our senses, emotions, personality, feelings and intelligence are the result of a ballet of genes and environment that shapes the path of our lives.
