  1. Fascinating This book delves into current brain research, going between case studies and internal scans The various topics seem only loosely connected until the end, when they are brought together in an examination of self Highly recommended, this copy will be returned to the library but I will be purchasing soon.I started this and fell behind events my month of reading is in no way indicative of the content This book is not over simplified, but is still completely accessible It contains an exte [...]


  2. for as fascinating and compelling a subject as neuroscience is, it s likely nigh impossible for any book on the subject to be dull eliezer sternberg, a resident neurologist at yale new haven hospital, covers a wide range of cognitive science related topics in his new book, neurologic the brain s hidden rationale behind our irrational behavior seeking an understanding of the myriad processes and functions at work within our brains, sternberg offers an equal mix of research, anecdote, extrapolatio [...]


  3. Fascinating for people who have no background in abnormal psychology, this book tours brain disorders to learn about the logic of the unconscious and the self If you do have a psychology background, some of the stories are old hat for example, the author discusses the Stroop effect at length but also brings up current info about experiments that you may not know like how the Stroop effect is lessened during hypnosis, and what that implies towards dissociative disorder and conversion disorder T [...]


  4. This has to be one of the most readable and informative works on this subject ever written Thankfully, Sternberg doesn t over simplify in his effort to make this readable for the layman and the sheer amount of detail is incredibly stimulating He is extremely thorough but moves through all of this material at a perfect pace I had to read in one sitting I was so hooked, absolutely required reading for anyone interested in the workings of the brain mind.


  5. I really enjoyed reading this book, especially as it explained in a very easy to follow manner how the brain works Sternberg obviously put a lot of research into this book, and his use of case studies made it much attainable to understand the different neurological diseases described in the book There were loads of interesting facts as well, and my favorite was learning that schizophrenic patients have the ability to tickle themselves



  6. Pop sci book on my field, cognitive neuroscience As such, I found I was familiar with most of the material, which is why I give it 3 stars rather than the 4 it probably objectively deserves It was a really good overview of some interesting aspects of the field, some of which I bring up in conversation, but it was fundamentally pop which meant that a lot of details were smoothed over, inaccuracies were given for the sake of simplicity, and random jargon was inserted to keep things authoritative w [...]



  7. An insight into the brain s inner workings The alternative mechanisms of sight that some blignd people demonstrate are particularly illuminating.A definite must reread.


  8. This was really interesting I d definitely recommend it if you re into neuroscience I thought the author did an excellent job explaining complex topics in ways that were easy to understand I also like the way he connected each chapter and the progression of the information I learned a lot from this book.


  9. Fascinating subject and analysis of the cause of neurological conditions However, don t take the author s explanations as fact on everything I have seen criticisms of some of his explanations and they are hypothesis than fact.


  10. A particularly engrossing narrative of how the brain works or doesn t Sternberg s book explores of the mechanics behind ingrained every day behaviors as well as outlier diagnoses like dissociative personality disorder.


  11. Best book I ever read about our brain work A lot of interesting cases and experiments Hypnosis, schizophrenia, personality splitting if you curios about how it works, here you could find some information Most statement are taken from other sources and you can find it in the end of the book.


  12. An interesting read It had some points that could push some one towards a justified atheism, but other than that undesirable in my opinion effect there wasn t much actionable here.




  13. Excellent account about how the conscious mind and unconscious mind works together to help us concoct a coherent sense of self and the world, under girded by the biology of the brain.


  14. now, i want the sequel this felt like a super great introduction and i just want to know about everything about all of this.



  15. After lots of psychology a medical view Interesting tour of reverse engineering our wetware Shocking, it says hypnosis works Really I have to dig deeper on this one, because I can t believe it.


  16. There is a peculiar problem with neuroscience just now, and NeuroLogic is able to dance over, under, and around it The problem is that we are starting to learn just enough about how the brain not just the mind works, to be dangerous Previously, attempts such as phrenology to use what was known about the brain to form opinions about human behavior, were so comically off base as to be relatively easy to debunk Now, we have learned enough about certain phenomena such as schizophrenics hearing voice [...]


  17. Another accessible but not completely unscientific read exploring the rationale behindokay you can read the subtitle I m sure The question format took me a little time to get used to because some of the transitions felt sudden, but especially at the end it all ties together I learned a number of interesting tidbits.Generally when he describes something as fact, it is a pretty well established theory I looked up the corollary discharge stuff, for instance, and there have been papers on it since t [...]


  18. The questions posed and the examples used were interesting Can we remember things that never happened Why do people believe in alien abductions Get used to reading the phrase using fMRI as most of the studies cited used brain imaging The flaw in using these studies is that the sample sizes are so small that it s hard to know how reliable they are Neuroscience does seem like a recent field that needs research The author does a service by letting the reader know when what he says is controversial [...]


  19. Disclaimer This book was won in a giveaway and is an uncorrected bound galley.The style is a combination of Sacks, Damasio, and Eagleman and was a thoroughly enjoyable read The chapters each start with a question posed that the author delves into with enthusiasm and provides real world examples and research that provide the reader not only with current theory and thought regarding the subject matter but also the discontent and contrasting views held by others in the field Easy to read and unders [...]


  20. This book is extremely interesting and definitely worth a read Sternberg uses nice transitions and is able to tie all the things he talks about together Sternberg s writing style is a little too dry, however, so it is a semi dense read He is able to make things understandable through reiteration, but sometimes it feels a little too wordy, as if he were trying to reach a word limit for a school paper.I like this book, but it feels like something is lacking I can t say what, but the read felt a li [...]


  21. Excelente livro Um ter o de Charles Duhigg, outro de Oliver Sacks e o restante de Dan Ariely.Bastante informativo, com boa escrita Em momentos pode parecer massante, outras vezes t cnico demais, mas a maioria bem objetivo menciona um caso neurol gico e, em seguida, introduz a geografia cerebral, a es hormonais e explica o cient fica Mesmo a maior parte sendo composta de suposi es, o conhecimento bem interessante.O conte do, em si, n o foi novidade aprendi uma tecnicalidade aqui e ali, mas, olhan [...]


  22. Great book perfect for beginners because it gives a lot of examples and clarifies them with easy words It is also super interesting for people that have already read some of the recent books about the brain and the reason of some strange behaviors.Gran bel libro, perfetto per chi si avvicina per la prima volta alle neuroscienze perch pieno di esempi che vengono spiegati in parole semplici, ma anche interessante per coloro che non sono proprio a digiuno di informazioni a riguardoANKS TO EDELWEISS [...]


  23. This is a fascinating book The author delves deeply into how our mind works, and he shows how specific parts of our brain control or influence how we think, feel, and behave I especially appreciate the respect he shows people who deal with blindness, deafness, or mental illness Now that I understand how some of my brain works, I can see some changes I can make to overcome some bad habits, like forgetting to pick up things when I m out.


  24. I had to read this book slowly because of my thirst to understand and remember as much of the vast information presented as possible It would be a good source text for the psychology classroom This book brought forth the workings of the brain that are below the surface of what we know It held my interest on every page Well written Thanks to the author for seeing the need to get into the meat of brain science.
