More About the Author

Educated at Yale University, Professor Alan Hall has held many prestigious posts at a number of Ivy League Universities both in the UK and in the United States of America including, a Wellcome Trust Research Fellowship (Department of Medicine, Cambridge University Medical School), the University of California (Department of Biochemistry,UC Riverside)(Fulbright Research Fellowship) and the Roche Institute of Molecular Biology (Department of Neurosciences) in Nutley, New Jersey. Professor Hall's most recent academic appointment was as a Visiting (NIH-Funded) Professor at Cambridge University (England) where his research team studied apoptosis (programmed cell death) in cancer cells. Professor Hall has served on the editorial boards of a number of high profile science journals and has more than 150 academic publications and has written on a wide range of subjects and has many reviews and invited chapters published in books. More recently Professor Hall has taken to being a writer of 'popular science' where he is able to translate complex concepts and topics into jargon-free language that people can understand-and hopefully enjoy. Professor Hall's books and essays are informative, entertaining and, for some, easy reads.

3.0 out of 5 stars Left brain description of the mind. 13 Mar 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This ebooklet is an interesting eclectic collection of thoughts on the past and current research on the mind. Once I got use to the author's quirky style and got past the mediocre formatting of the book, I found the book quite enjoyable. If you would like a more right-brained approach to the subject, I can recommend the book "The Mouse That Thought of Cheese".
