âBig questions are Gazzanigaâs stock in trade.â
âNew York Times
âGazzaniga is one of the most brilliant experimental neuroscientists in the world.â
âGazzaniga stands as a giant among neuroscientists, for both the quality of his research and his ability to communicate it to a general public with infectious enthusiasm.â
âRobert Bazell, Chief Science Correspondent, NBC News
The author of Human, Michael S. Gazzaniga has been called the âfather of cognitive neuroscience.â In his remarkable book, Whoâs in Charge?, he makes a powerful and provocative argument that counters the common wisdom that our lives are wholly determined by physical processes we cannot control. His well-reasoned case against the idea that we live in a âdeterminedâ world is fascinating and liberating, solidifying his place among the likes of Oliver Sacks, Antonio Damasio, V.S. Ramachandran, and other bestselling science authors exploring the mysteries of the human brain.
About: A powerful orthodoxy in the study of the brain has taken hold in recent years: Since physical laws govern the physical world and our own brains are part of that world, physical laws therefore govern our behavior and even our conscious selves.
