SLCL Presents Rebecca Schwarzlose

Wednesday, October 27th, 7pm CST
St. Louis County Library, HEC Media, and Left Bank Books present Rebecca Schwarzlose, “Brainscapes: The Warped, Wondrous Maps Written in Your Brain--and How They Guide You."
Your brain is a collection of maps: detailed representations of the sights, sounds, and actions that hold the key to your survival. Although scientists began discovering these maps over a century ago, we are only now beginning to unlock their secrets. Brain maps distort and shape our experience of the world, support complex thought, and make technology-enabled mind reading a modern-day reality. They shine a light on our past and our possible futures. In the process, they invite us to view ourselves from a startling new perspective. In “Brainscapes,” Washington University neuroscientist Rebecca Schwarzlose combines unforgettable real-life stories, cutting-edge research, and vivid illustrations to reveal brain maps’ surprising lessons about our place in the world.
Books available from Left Bank Books. Curbside pick-up, in-store pick-up, and shipping available.
