Product Details


“V. S. Ramachandran is one of our most gifted physicians and expositors, and in this new book he illuminates everything he touches—whether it is phantom limbs and how they can be ‘cured’; or how the brain can generate illusions and delusions; or synesthesia and its relation to metaphor, creativity and art; or the ultimate questions of how brain relates to mind. A Brief Tour of Human Consciousness belongs to that rare category of scientific book, one as accessible as it is deep.”—Oliver Sacks, M.D., bestselling author of Gratitude and On the Move

“Packed with ideas that are bold, irreverent, original, and ingenious. A breath of fresh air.”—David Hubel, Nobel Laureate, Harvard University

“An extraordinary book by a remarkable scientist!… the modern Paul Broca.”—Eric R. Kandel, M.D., Nobel Laureate, Columbia University

“An engaging book featuring a remarkable degree of insight, originality, and erudition.”—Neurology Today
