The brain has long been a source of fascination. In 1819, the radical thinker and surgeon William Lawrence put it like this: 'It is strongly suspected that a Newton or Shakespeare excels other mortals only - by having an extra inch of brain in the right place'. Today, many such suspicions are certainties. We understand the structures of the brain and their roles in making us who we are. We can record electrical signals from individual brain cells or networks of them.
Literally mind-blowing.An in-depth examination of what is inside our heads.
