We Are Our Brains

A Neurobiography of the Brain, from the Womb to Alzheimers's

D.F. Swaab, translated by Jane Hedley-Prole, english edition 2014


This book is about behaviorism and macrostructure, not microstructure, and reflects the author's political ideology, not a broad view of the field. The author is a neural determinist, believes free will is an illusion, and that sexual orientation and personal behavior is innate. Not much room for learning!

There's some good stuff here, but I've read it before. There's other stuff too, but life is too short.
