On the brain

Posting a couple of articles/resources I'm collecting for eventual reading related to the human brain.  I think this recent interest in the brain and its working started after watching parts of The Charlie Rose Show's "Brain Series"  over the past couple of months.  Last week I came across this 2001 interview with Danny Hillis. As the superconscious would have it, resources on this topic have displayed themselves to me. Though I believe the kernel germinated back in my days of economic study where I was introduced to experimental economics and neuro-economics. 

So here's today's reading list:

"A mind of one's own" by Raymond Tallis
