Deep Brain Diving description
What is the human mind? Where does the brain end and the mind begin? Neuroscientist Hannah Critchlow’s writings include Consciousness, a Ladybird introduction to the brain and how it works, and The Science of Fate, which explores the extent to which our brains are hardwired. Nicola Redhouse’s deeply personal memoir about her understanding of the brain and its relationship with postnatal depression, Unlike the Heart, becomes a rigorous investigation of neuroscience and psychoanalysis. Together they voyage into the depths of the human mind.
