The Tale of the Dueling Neurosurgeons (2014) Sam Kean

What happens when you get a rod of iron exploding through your brain? Do you believe there are people that can see smells and taste sounds? What happens when you the corpus callosum is intentionally severed breaking the main connection between the two halves of the brain?

Sam Kean weaves the answers to these questions along with the history of neuroscience and an interesting series of strange cases that illustrate each chapter.

Same Kean is terrific and bringing dry science to life. I highly recommend this as well as Caesar’s Last Breath.
