Summary

De un líder mundialmente reconocido en neurociencia, un viaje provocativo y apasionante a las profundidades de la mente humana.
 
¿De dónde vienen nuestros pensamientos? ¿Cómo hacemos elecciones y confiamos en nuestros juicios? ¿Cuál es el papel del inconsciente? ¿Podemos manipular nuestros sueños? En este alucinante éxito de ventas internacional, el galardonado neurocientífico Mariano Sigman explora las complejas respuestas a estas y muchas otras preguntas antiguas.
 
En el transcurso de sus 20 años de carrera investigando el funcionamiento interno del cerebro humano, el Dr. Sigman ha cultivado una notable visión interdisciplinaria. Se basa en la investigación en física, lingüística, psicología, educación y más para explicar por qué las personas que hablan más de un idioma son menos propensas a la demencia; cómo los bebés pueden reconocer con la vista objetos que antes solo habían tocado; cómo los bebés, incluso antes de pronunciar su primera palabra, tienen un sentido innato de lo correcto y lo incorrecto; y cómo podemos "leer" los pensamientos de los pacientes vegetativos decodificando patrones en su actividad cerebral.
 
Sobre la base de la impresionante charla TED del autor, la investigación innovadora presentada en La vida secreta de la mente revoluciona la forma en que entendemos el papel que juega la neurociencia en nuestras vidas, desbloqueando los misteriosos procesos cerebrales que controlan las formas en que aprendemos, razonamos, sentimos, pensamos y soñamos.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

From a world-renowned leader in neuroscience, a provocative, enthralling journey into the depths of the human mind.


Where do our thoughts come from? How do we make choices and trust our judgments? What is the role of the unconscious? Can we manipulate our dreams? In this mind-bending international bestseller, award-winning neuroscientist Mariano Sigman explores the complex answers to these and many other age-old questions.

Over the course of his 20-year career investigating the inner workings of the human brain, Dr. Sigman has cultivated a remarkable interdisciplinary vision. He draws on research in physics, linguistics, psychology, education, and beyond to explain why people who speak more than one language are less prone to dementia; how infants can recognize by sight objects they've previously only touched; how babies, even before they utter their first word, have an innate sense of right and wrong; and how we can "read" the thoughts of vegetative patients by decoding patterns in their brain activity.

Building on the author's awe-inspiring TED talk, the cutting-edge research presented in The Secret Life of the Mind revolutionizes how we understand the role that neuroscience plays in our lives, unlocking the mysterious cerebral processes that control the ways in which we learn, reason, feel, think, and dream.
