Recommendation

What do synesthesia, autism, brain damage, neurosurgery, lucid dreaming and electrical currents have in common? Properly understood, each illustrates the possibility that people can develop “superhuman minds,” according to neuroscience researchers Berit Brogaard and Kristian Marlow. They offer vivid examples of individuals with striking abilities and present discussions on general neurological principles as well as suggestions on how to think more effectively. You will marvel at the talents Brogaard and Marlow describe; however, temper their enthusiasm with a tiny grain of salt. getAbstract recommends their fascinating exploration of human potential to anyone intrigued by how the brain works.

In this book, you will learn

  • How rare conditions can lead to exceptional mental performance;
  • How injuries, surgeries or medications can change brain function; and
  • How you can develop a “superhuman mind.”
