Product description

Review

The Ravenous Brain ... offers a meaningful explanation of what we do in trying to find meaning in everything. And what we do mentally (in other words, cerebrally) is what we are: conscious too conscious beings.... The Ravenous Brain s theoretical claims have the potential to escape the popular science box and enter the real world of wet cognitive neuroscience. I hope it happens, and I hope Bor writes more books. --Times Higher Education Supplement

In The Ravenous Brain, Bor takes us on a tour of the fascinating world of consciousness research. . . . Bor s engaging and knowledgeable prose, liberally sprinkled with personal vignettes and coupled with a knack for explaining complex concepts in everyday language, make this a book well worth reading. --New Scientist

As scientific enterprises go, cracking consciousness is up there with deciphering dark matter. Neuroscientist Daniel Bor dives into the conundrum with relish. . . . Intriguing arguments abound. --Nature

Book Description
