“In Phantoms in the Brain, Dr. Ramachandran recounts how his work with patients who have bizarre neurological disorders has shed light on the deep architecture of the brain, and what these findings tell us about who we are; how we construct our body image; why we laugh or become depressed; why we believe in God; how we make decisions, deceive ourselves and dream; perhaps even why we’re so clever at philosophy, music and art.”
