A revolutionary new understanding of the human brain and its changeable nature.
The brain is a dynamic, electric, living forest. It is not rigidly fixed but instead constantly modifies its patterns – adjusting to remember, adapting to new conditions, building expertise. Your neural networks are not hardwired but livewired, reconfiguring their circuitry every moment of your life.
Covering decades of research – from synaesthesia to dreaming to the creation of new senses – and groundbreaking discoveries from Eagleman’s own laboratory, Livewired surfs the leading edge of science to explore the most advanced technology ever discovered.
