A Very Short Tour of the Mind : 21 Short Walks Around the Human Brain Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Leading us through cognitive theory, neuroscience and Darwinian evolution with his trademark wit and wisdom, Michael Corballis explains what we know and don't know about our minds.

How do we know if we're really the top dogs in brain power?

Does our creativity stem solely from the right brain?

From language to standing upright, composing music to lying, he uncovers our most common misconceptions and the fascinating habits and abilities that make us human. 'We're fortunate to have Corballis as our learned and charming guide on this all-too-short tour of the human mind' Steven Pinker
