9780753810682: How Brains Make Up Their Minds

This text charts the brain's mind, progressing from single nerve cells to co-operative nerve cell assemblies to the emergence of complex brain patterns. By drawing on recent developments in brain imaging and theories of chaos and non-linear dynamics it shows how brains create intention and meaning.

Book Description:

Walter J. Freeman explores how we control our behavior and make sense of the world around us. Avoiding determinism both in sociobiology, which proposes that persons' genes control their brains' functioning, and in neuroscience, which posits that their brains' disposition is molded by chemistry and environmental forces, Freeman charts a new course―one that gives individuals due credit and responsibility for their actions.

About the Author:

Walter Freeman is a professor in the Graduate School at the University of California, Berkeley, where he has taught Brain science for forty years. He is the author of more than 300 articles and two books, Mass Action in the Nervous System and Societies of Brains.
