Much Of How We Think About the Brain is Wrong

Today we're having a discussion about the brain. Actually, it’s more than that--we’re going to talk about how a lot of what we think we know about the brain might just not be so!

Science writer Annie Murphy Paul joins us today to talk about her remarkable new book entitled The Extended Mind: The Power of Thinking Outside The Brain. It’s a book that has expanded how I think about the mind and I can’t wait to introduce you to what I consider a must-read book.

In my comments after the interview, I mention a follow-up interview you may want to check out. It's with Dr. John Medina, author of a series of books called Brain Rules. You can find my discussion with John in episode 188.
