Read full description of the books:
Brain science in the last decade has dramatically changed our understanding of how humans manage to escape our biological shackles by constantly remolding ourselves in a near-infinite number of ways. Here one of the world's leading authorities explains with remarkable lucidity the new discoveries to the general reader. Your brain is changed physically by the conversations you have, the events you witness and the love you receive. This is true all through your life, not just when you are an infant. This process, which the author calls sculpting the brain, occurs despite the genetic hardwiring of Darwinian evolution. It is a process that constantly shapes and reshapes us, as a trembling web of one hundred billion brain cells fires off cascades of impulses, which ultimately create the experiences that make us what we are. Ian Robertson explains in fascinating detail how who and what we are is being sculpted throughout our lifetime, second by second, by our interactions with the world, by our relationships with other people, and by the buffeting winds of fate. His astonishing and inspiring message from the cutting edge of science is that our brains have a great untapped potential for superb achievement from childhood to death, and that we are largely in command of it.
