It traces the historical development of ideas about the brain and its function from antiquity to the age of neuro-imaging.Clearly explained by Professor of Psychology Angus Gellatly and award-winning artist Oscar Zarate, they invite you to take a fresh look at the nature of mind, consciousness and personal identity.
