Summary Ê eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Joseph E. LeDoux

Synaptic Self How Our Brains Become Who We Are characters Ò eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Examination of the biological bases of our emotions and memories Now the world renowned expert on the brain has produced with a groundbreaking work that tells a profound story how the little spaces between the neurons the brain's synapses are the channels through which we think act imagine feel and remember Synapses encode the es. I m not afraid to say that parts of this book were very complicated In some of the middle chapters all I could really comprehend was that there sure was a lot of advanced chemistry going on between brain cells Chemistry was never my best subjectBut the book s central point is very well presented everything about ourselves is a conseuence of how our brains are put together and how our brains are put together is a conseuence of the genes we start with and the fine details of our environment This fits with what I have come to believe the nature of the mind and the soul to be so I took to the thesis heartily The complexity involved in manifesting that principle in a real human brain however is nothing short of dazzlingI particularly found the chapter on mental illnesses to be informative There s a fashionable backlash these days against the over medication of America that isn t wholly unjustified LeDoux admits that drugs which act on large areas of the brain as today s drugs do are not able to precisely target the intended brain systems and so cause many unpleasant side effects But the entire book adds up to a solid defense of the principle that drugs are a legitimate approach to dealing with mental illness If our memories attitudes behaviors and so on are all tied to synaptic activity and synaptic activity is electro chemical in nature then it stands to reason that chemicals can be used to change the mind in beneficial ways This book is very logical and scientific particularly in its acknowledgment that much remains unknown and that many conclusions cannot be applied universally There are freuent references to ongoing experiments and studies testing new dogma and exploring long standing uestions Some of those uestions may even be answered by now but the sheer number of them means that exciting research will no doubt continue for a very long time It s that sense of excitement as we discover and about how we tick that animates the book even in the midst of dense technical vocabulary
