Dick Swaab
We Are Our Brains: A Neurobiography of the Brain, from the Womb to Alzheimer's


Instructive and breathtaking treatise on human brain – a wonderful instrument endowed with infinite possibilities which are far from being understood. This book is full of information useful not only to the specialists, but also to all those who want to know themselves better. D. Swaab touches, always with humor, on a wide range of themes: infancy and parental influence, puberty, gender identity, ethics, memory, religious views, senescence, mental debility, death. «We Are Our Brains», first published in 2010, is among the nonfiction bestsellers in Europe.
