Our heads contain the most complex information-processing device in the known universe, but even a biological supercomputer has its bugs and weaknesses, from déjà vu to our propensity to make stupid decisions. This guide to the brain’s workings explains what neuroscience has revealed about our conscious and unconscious minds, our memories, intelligence and creativity. It also contains experiments that you can do yourself to demonstrate glitches in perception, and offers tips on using your 86 billion neurons more effectively.
