John Liebeskind, neurophysiologist, UCLAScientists have learned more about the brain in the last decadethan in all of previous history, and the implications of thelatest research are clear: The human brain is far more powerful,and has the potential for immensely greater growth andtransformation, than was ever before imagined. These discoveriesmay constitute the most significant development in learningsince the invention of writing.Michael Hutchison captures all the drama, excitement, andadventure as we finally begin to comprehend the most mysteriousand complex structure in the universe, the source of humanculture, a still untapped reservoir of powers and skills.

MEGABRAIN is a lucid and livelyaccount of where the pioneers in brain research are headed - andwhere they are taking
