The Secret Life of the Mind by Mariano Sigman

April 20, 2017

How Our Brain Thinks, Feels and Decides


Where do our thoughts come from?
How do we make choices and trust the judgement of both others and ourselves?
What is the role of the unconscious?
How can we manipulate our dreams?

These are some of the questions tackled in this groundbreaking, personal and comprehensive guide into understanding our thoughts by one of the leading neuroscientists.

In this provocative, mind-bending international bestseller, Pontifical Academy of Sciences 2016 laureate and global award-winning neurologist Mariano Sigman brings to the public his world-renowned expertise from over twenty years spent exploring the inner workings of the human brain.

Sigman’s vision is interdisciplinary. His team comprises physicists, linguists, psychologists, biologists, engineers, educational scientists, mathematicians, economists, medical doctors, and computer scientists. With interrogations as theoretical as they are practical, this book revolutionizes how neuroscience serves us in our lives, improving education and development.

Building on his awe-inspiring TED talk on language and mental health, the leading research from The Secret Life of the Mind intermingles human and natural science to underpin how the infinity of neurons inside our brains manufacture how we perceive, reason, feel, dream, and communicate.
