Description - The Instant Egghead Guide to the Mind by Emily Anthes

Everything from neurons to consciousness in the blink of an eye (which takes 300 milliseconds).Take a "fantastic voyage" through the whorls and curves of the human brain, no miniaturization required. Learn everything from how quickly you can possibly think (and that left-handed people think faster) to why being bad feels so good (yes, there's a biochemical explanation).Whether you're a fan of "Scientific American"'s wildly popular "60-Second Science" podcast or just curious about science, you're going to love the tingly way your synapses feel after enjoying the same bite-sized knowledge in "The Instant Egghead Guide to the Mind."

Buy The Instant Egghead Guide to the Mind by Emily Anthes from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
