Publisher's Summary

Where do our thoughts come from? How do we make choices and trust our judgments? What is the role of the unconscious? Can we manipulate our dreams? In this mind-bending international best seller, award-winning neuroscientist Mariano Sigman explores the complex answers to these and many other age-old questions.
Drawing on research in physics, linguistics, psychology, education, and more, Dr. Sigman explains why people who speak more than one language are less prone to dementia, how infants can recognize by sight objects they've previously only touched, how babies - even before they utter their first word - have an innate sense of right and wrong, and how we can read the thoughts of vegetative patients by decoding patterns in their brain activity.
The cutting-edge research presented in The Secret Life of the Mind revolutionizes how we understand the role that neuroscience plays in our lives, unlocking the mysterious cerebral processes that control the ways in which we learn, reason, feel, think, and dream.

This is a textbook

I chose this book because of an interest in neuroscience and psychology. And I had high hopes but unfortunately the information in this book is packaged in such a way it makes it difficult to absorb. The author while very knowledgeable does not seem to be writing for the general public as his target audience. But fellow researchers and graduate students. One tip is to read or listen to this book with a dictionary handy. The author in each chapter uses words not in common use. Also the book would be more palatable in reverse.

Horrible narration

The narrator seems to have no comprehension of the material. Certainly, his narration style gets in the way of clarity and the overall enjoyment of the book.
