John McCrone
NZD $36.99
Going Inside is about something that happens in less than the blink of an eye: a single moment of consciousness. With great clarity and stunning detail, John McCrone takes the reader inside the brain itself, to discover how it literally 'grows awareness'. He introduces us to the latest ideas, the hottest researchers in the field, and new tools such as brain imaging machines which can film the actual thoughts and images in a person's head.
