about

“Big questions are Gazzaniga’s stock in trade.”
New York Times

“Gazzaniga is one of the most brilliant experimental neuroscientists in the world.”

“Gazzaniga stands as a giant among neuroscientists, for both the quality of his research and his ability to communicate it to a general public with infectious enthusiasm.”

Ramachandran, and other bestselling science authors exploring the mysteries of the human brain.
