(To find out what that means, be sure to watch the video linked below.) Eagleman is the writer and presenter of The Brain with David Eagleman, an international television series nominated for an Emmy. His work has focused on brain plasticity, timer perception, synesthesia, and neurolaw. Also, he is a serial entrepreneur and New York Times bestselling author.
Quote: “Every week I get letters from people worldwide who feel that the possibilian point of view represents their understanding better than either religion or neo-atheism.” | “A typical neuron makes about ten thousand connections to neighboring neurons. Given the billions of neurons, this means there are as many connections in a single cubic centimeter of brain tissue as there are stars in the Milky Way galaxy.”
