Bookforum - The Way Our Brains Work

Here is another cool collection of links from Bookforum, this time on the human brain and related topics - it was posted last Friday. Favorites among these include the interview by Jonah Lehrer with Allan Jones of the Allen Institute for Brain Science (nice to see billionaires putting some of the money to good use) and John Searle's mixed review of Antonio Damasio's Self Comes to Mind: Constructing the Conscious Brain - it's always interesting when a philosopher reviews work by a neuroscientist.

Great website. And thanks for the book tips.

Can't wait to read the book by Damasio, who is one of the reasons I got interested in neuroscience.
