What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Using a lively, discursive writing style, Llinas argues that the self is the center of prediction and arises in the motor systems of the brain. A myriad of neuroscience and comparative physiology facts support the fascinating and provocative hypothesis of this book.

J. Allan Hobson, Director, Laboratory of Neurophysiology, Massachusetts Mental Health Center, Harvard Medical School
