Si la mente consciente no es mas que la punta del iceberg, que es lo que hace, entretanto, el resto? En su nuevo libro, brillante y provocativo, David Eagleman, un reconocido cientifico que trabaja en el campo de las neurociencias, navega por las profundidades del cerebro subconsciente para iluminar misterios sorprendentes: por que nuestro pie avanza hacia el pedal del freno antes de que percibamos un peligro inminente? Por que nos damos cuenta de que alguien ha dicho nuestro nombre en una conversacion que no estabamos escuchando? Por que las personas cuyo nombre comienza con j tienen mayores posibilidades de casarse con otras personas cuyo nombre tambien comienza con esta letra? Por que es tan dificil guardar un secreto? Tratando temas y hechos tan diversos como los danos cerebrales, la observacion de aviones, las drogas, la belleza, la infidelidad, la sinestesia, el derecho penal, la inteligencia artificial y los espejismos, Incognito nos conduce por una fascinante exploracion de la mente, de sus contradicciones y de lo que se oculta bajo su superficie. / If the conscious mind is nothing more than the tip of the iceberg, what does the rest of it do in the meantime? In his new book, David Eagleman, a highly regarded scientist who works in the field of neuroscience, makes his way through the depths of the subconscious brain to highlight mysterious surprises: why does our foot make its way towards the brake pedal before we have perceived imminent danger? Why do we notice when somebody has said our name in a conversation that we were not listening to? Why do people whose names begin with J have a higher chance of marrying somebody whose name also begins with this letter? Dealing with subjects as diverse as brain damage, airplane watching, drugs, beauty, infidelity, synaesthesia, the death sentence, artificial intelligence and illusions, Incognito takes us on a journey of fascinating discovery of the mind, of its contradictions and what is hidden under the surface.
