Books on the Brain

New technology and techniques are bringing about remarkable leaps in our understanding of the mysteries of the brain. Neuroscientists such as Daniel Dennett, Oliver Sacks and Daniel Levitin have exposed the biochemical activity that governs so much of our behaviour, while novelists such as Siri Hustvedt, in her recent memoir, and the ever cutting-edge Richard Powers have brought new insights across literary spectrum. Here are some of the very best journeys to the centre of the nervous system.
