Descrição da editora
Memory, consciousness, thought, emotion and pleasure generated by our brains underlie choice, values, morals, communication, avarice, aggression ans social interaction. Behaviors depend largely on inborn brain circuitry but are modifiable by experience. Although impressive in versatility and power our brains are not perfect. They often mislead us.
To compensate for limitations in intelligence, memory, speed of processing and physical power we use our brains to develop increasingly autonomous computerized machines. If we are to continue to enjoy life we must improve our own behaviors and remain masters of our inventions.
This book has been kept deliberately succinct and accessible to the general reader with the intention of providing an appreciation of the wonders of the amazing but fallible human brain and to provoke discussion of some of the challenges that it generates.
