Summary
Early studies of human brain function used a simple method: wait for misfortune to strike -- strokes, seizures, infectious diseases, lobotomies, accidents -- and observe how the victim coped. With lucid explanations and incisive wit, Sam Kean explains the brain's secret passageways while recounting forgotten stories of common people whose struggles, resiliency, and deep humanity made modern neuroscience possible
