David Eagleman, Incognito

06/26/2011 7:30 pm

If the conscious mind—the part you consider to be you—is just the tip of the iceberg, what is the rest doing? In his sparkling and provocative new book, renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman navigates the depths of the subconscious brain to illuminate surprising mysteries: Why are people whose names begin with J more likely to marry other people whose names begin with J? Why is it so difficult to keep a secret? And how is it possible to get angry at yourself—who, exactly, is mad at whom?

Taking in brain damage, plane spotting, dating, drugs, beauty, infidelity, synesthesia, criminal law, artificial intelligence, and visual illusions, Incognito is a thrilling subsurface exploration of the mind and all its contradictions.

Please join us in welcoming Mr. Eagleman for this reading, discussion, signing and audience Q&A.
