About the Book

This monograph presents the main biological foundations for perception, judgment, and behavior, in an evolutionary and developmental context. It is a summary of evidence essential for understanding normal and abnormal subjective experience and behavior. The author has attempted to avoid the jargon of specific discilplines as much as possible, and to frame his approach from the point of view of everyday experiences and in such an informal manner that it would be accessible to anyone interested in human behavior.

We are all curious about the internal events that deliver experiences into our ken. We are inherently fascinated by such questions as: How do the cells that make up my mind brain reveal my various body sensations, feelings and moods? How much of my behavior is under voluntary control? [...]

The author has addressed himself to a central problem of human life, the problem of communication. No intelligent reader can fail to be fascinated by this illuminating essay written by one of the world's leading neuroscientists.
