About this work


"In this provocative, mind-bending international bestseller, prize-winning neuroscientist Mariano Sigman reveals his life's work exploring the inner workings of the human brain. Sigman's ambition is to explain the mind so that we can understand ourselves and others more deeply. He shows how we form ideas during our first days of life, how we give shape to our fundamental decisions, how we dream and imagine, why we feel certain emotions, how the brain transforms and how who we are changes with it. Sigman looks at the development of language, how bilingualism helps us to think and how our notions of what is good and fair develop far earlier than we think."--From jacket.
