Exempelvis skickar småbarns hjärnor ut slumpvis genererade signaler till musklerna som de sedan får direkt feedback från syn, känsel och balans. Tази книга е изключително информативно и вълнуващо пътешествие в може би най-непознатата и необяснима територия - човешкия мозък. It's also one of the most hopeful books I've ever read, particularly needful in these uncertain times.

Unfortunately, on the information related to eyes there are gross inaccuracies and information that is simply wrong.The pacing was great, and he didn't get bogged down in the technical details that sometimes make this particular subject matter unapproachable to many. He also postulates that the purpose of eye saccades is to refresh the retinal image, as anything that stays still on the retina quickly disappears, due to our brains tuning our perception for not what is there, but what has changed.

Not convinced about the idea that the main purpose of dreaming is to stop the visual cortex from reconfiguring after sunset.Even though I'm a self professed neuroscience nerd, I definitely believe this book could be enjoyed by those who dont have a scientific background or understanding. I am unable to trust the accuracy of information in this book without fact checking each individual point. The Wall Street Journal wrote that "since the passing of Isaac Asimov, we haven't had a working scientist like Eagleman, who engages his ideas in such a variety of modes. Särskilt beskriver David Eagleman hur hjärnan har förmågan att tolka komplicerade signaler från sensoriska organ och av dessa ta till vara på den i stunden relevanta informationen.

And there is no more accomplished and accessible guide than renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman to help us understand the nature and changing texture of that fabric. The magic of the brain is not found in the parts it's made of but in the way those parts unceasingly reweave themselves in an electric living fabric. I’ve enjoyed following David’s projects over the last decade, and as expected, this book did not disappoint.

Informationen måste vara viktig, den behöver inte vara relevant för något grundläggande behov men tillräckligt betydelsefull för att en förändring skall vara motiverad. I was in a constant state of having my jaw on a floor, as this completely changed my way of perceiving what I have inside my head. Det bildar en stängd loop där direkt återkoppling följs av fler försök som efterhand blir mer korrekta tills dess att en nära fullständig förståelse är uppnådd. Loved his use of popular science fiction examples to illustrate (Aliens franchise, Star Trek, Terminator etc.
