The Superhuman Mind PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Superhuman Mind free pdf Did you know your brain has superpowers? Berit Brogaard and Kristian Marlow study people with astonishing talents - memory champions, human echolocators, musical virtuosos, math geniuses and synesthetes who taste colours and hear faces. But as amazing as these abilities are, they are not mysterious. Our brains constantly process a huge amount of information below our awareness and what these gifted individuals have in common is that through practice, injury, an innate brain disorder or even more unusual circumstances, they have managed to gain a degree of conscious access to this potent processing power. THE SUPERHUMAN MIND takes us inside the lives and brains of geniuses, savants, virtuosos and a wide variety of ordinary people who have acquired truly extraordinary talents, one way or another. Delving into the neurological underpinnings of these abilities, the authors even reveal how we can acquire some of them ourselves-from perfect pitch and lightning fast math skills to supercharged creativity. THE SUPERHUMAN MIND is a book full of the fascinating science readers look for from the likes of Oliver Sacks, combined with the exhilarating promise of Moonwalking with Einstein.
