Tales from Both Sides of the Brain: A Life in Neuroscience

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Michael Gazzaniga is one of leading researchers in cognitive neuroscience and is especially known for his split brain research studying patients who have had their corpus callosum severed leaving the two hemispheres of their brains unable to directly communicate with each other. So that’s really interesting, but it could also be really dry. Luckily, Gazzaniga is an engaging writer in addition to being a notable scientist. In this book he wraps his personal journey around the science in such a way that the book is surprisingly enjoyable. I listened to it on audio and Johnny Heller does an excellent job reading it. Anyone interested in neuroscience or life in the sciences would enjoy this book. I certainly did.
