A Neuroscientist's Quest for what makes us Human by V. S. Ramachandran. 

 

I am in the middle of this book right now and it is facinating.  This is readable science without dumbing down. 

 

If you wonder where we got our humanity from if it wasn't God, this postulates the evolutionary path through neurology of how humans developed a unique intellect from our primates with out having an 'intelligent designer'. 

 

For anyone interested in science and the brain and how and who we are.

I just finished the section on phantom limbs and brain plasticity.  I'm really enjoying it so far.  Hoping to get some more reading in later today.  But first I have to a) get off the laptop and b) figure out how to get the cat to quit laying on my book when I try to read.
