Despite advances in technology and medicine, the brain–and its effect on human behavior–remains one of the most mysterious parts of the body. How does the brain create individual personalities? Why does it cause some people to be “good” and others “bad”? What does it mean to be human in the modern age and how does the mind change this? Neuroscientist and Guggenheim Fellow David Eagleman (Incognito) tackles these and other big questions for an in-depth exploration of our “inner cosmos.” By examining criminal justice, extreme sports, brain surgery, and other mind-related facets of life, he’ll show that, no matter what people do, the brain is behind it all.
