The Burning House: Unlocking the Mysteries of the Brain

Burning HousePenguin Group Canada | September 1, 1995 | Trade Paperback

Welcome to the brain: the three and a half pounds of pinky-grey mass that is responsible for processing and storing astounding amounts of information. With compelling new research and intriguing scientific theories, Jay Ingram explores such cranial conundrums as: the stroke victim who constantly denies the existence of the world's left side, the epileptic patient who emerges from brain surgery with no capacity to store new memories, and the amputee encountering the eerie phenomenon of the "phantom limb". Ingram's customary wit and eye for the unusual shine as he investigates the mysterious, little-explored landscape of the brain.
