The Tell-Tale Brain

Tales of the Unexpected from Inside Your Mind

Our brains are the most enchanting and complex thing in the known universe - but what happens when they go wrong? The author explores: how our minds work, and what makes each of us so uniquely human.

Vilayanur S. Ramachandran is Director of the Centre for the Brain at the University of California, San Diego. He has a PhD from Cambridge and many honours and awards including a fellowship from All Souls College, Oxford. He lectures widely on art, visual perception and the brain, gave the 2003 BBC Recith Lectures, and is the author of the critically acclaimed Phantoms in the Brain, which was the basis for a two part series on Channel Four TV. Newsweek recently named him one of the 'hundred most prominent people to watch in the next century.'

"Ramachandran is a latter-day Marco Polo" -- Richard Dawkins "A profoundly intriguing and compelling guide to the intricacies of the human brain." -- Oliver Sachs "Excellent ... I cannot imagine a better account of the sweep of contemporary neuroscience" Financial Times "A leader in his field and an ingenious and tireless researcher. This is the best book of its kind that I have come across" New York Review of Books "A masterpiece. The best of its kind and beautifully crafted." -- Allan Snyder, Frs, Director Of The Centre For The Mind
