內容簡介


盲人如何在腦海中呈像?
為什麼一個人的呵欠啟動了另一個人的呵欠?
相互競爭的運動中,如何利用影像裝置致勝?
聲稱被外星人綁架的人,他們產生幻象的原因是?


對隱藏在怪異行為後的大腦邏輯,以及意識與無意識系統如何交互作用,以便產生所謂的經驗並且保有自我感知,本書做了開創性的研究。

「Sternberg不滿於待在他醫學專業的舒適圈裡,這本書不僅顯示了他驚人的學識,它還顯示了作者不想只是當個神經科學家,就連他所探問的主題(腦),也不願只是當一個器官...大膽、睿智、吸引人的一本書。」
--《華盛頓郵報》

「充分研究了我們理解事物的神經迴路,Sternberg打開了大腦的黑盒子,檢視腦的平行意識與無意識系統,並且探索做夢、自動駕駛機制到記憶、幻覺與心理創傷。」
--《自然》期刊

從奇怪的夢、幻象到精神分裂與多重人格,人類的腦負責各式各樣奇怪的思想與行為。當我們從外部來看,這些現象通常被視為瘋狂而被禁止,但是如果以上我們稱之為怪異的現象,實際上是有邏輯地計畫而成的呢?

本書探索了大腦內在的推理系統,從它深不可測的無意識到有意識的決斷,解釋了我們最怪異與最典型的各種行為。從夢遊殺手、會傳染的呵欠、運動迷的大腦到錯誤的記憶、潛藏的訊息以及怕癢的秘密,作者Eliezer Sternbert告訴讀者,大腦詮釋世界的模式,恰好符合它獨特邏輯的模式。揭開這些模式和干擾這種模式的各種方法,不僅會改變我們對精神疾病和超自然經驗的看法,也將照亮我們自身被隱藏的那個部分。

A groundbreaking investigation of the brain’s hidden logic behind our strangest behaviors, and of how conscious and unconscious systems interact in order to create our experience and preserve our sense of self.
 
From bizarre dreams and hallucinations to schizophrenia and multiple personalities, the human brain is responsible for a diverse spectrum of strange thoughts and behaviors. When observed from the outside, these phenomena are often written off as being just “crazy,” but what if they were actually planned and logical?
 
NeuroLogic explores the brain’s internal system of reasoning, from its unconscious depths to conscious decision making, and illuminates how it explains our most outlandish as well as our most stereotyped behaviors. From sleepwalking murderers, contagious yawning, and the brains of sports fans to false memories, subliminal messages, and the secret of ticklishness, Dr. Eliezer Sternberg shows that there are patterns to the way the brain interprets the world—–patterns that fit the brain’s unique logic. Unraveling these patterns and the various ways they can be disturbed will not only alter our view of mental illness and supernatural experience, but will also shed light on the hidden parts of ourselves.
