    One thought on “Incognito: viețile secrete ale creierului”

    1. Let me start with the easy stuff. On a literary note, this book is entertaining. However, it reads more like a series of interesting essays on neuroscience rather than a book. Let me move on to the more interesting stuff. This book is deceptive. Eagleman uses a "slight of hand" writing style. Just as he describes how magic tricks deceive the brain, Eagleman uses this entertaining little book to advocate for a social and justice system that disregards civil rights. How does he do this? He strings [...]

    2. ظاهرا روحی در کار نیست!!!این کتاب هم مثل بقیه کتابهایی که توی زمینه نوروساینس (عصب شناسی مغز) خوندم بسیار از چیزهایی رو که در مورد مذهب و دین به ما گفتن رو با اصول و علم و مثال های بسیار زیر سوال می بره یادمه کتاب های دینیمون یه سری دلایل برای اثبات روح میاوردن به طور مثال رویاهای [...]

    3. *I am required to disclose that I received this book as a freebie from the first reads giveaway program, but don't worry, this doesn't obligate me to say only good things.Though I give the book four stars and have already recommended it to more people than any book I've ever read, I would strongly disagree with the first reviewer that the book is an "engaging romp" or "fun".The book is, and should be, profoundly unsettling, though for reasons which make it all the more important to confront. Ea [...]

    4. This is a must read! What a fascinating book. Not only full of interesting ideas, but also hugely readable.It's a mouthful, but relevant, to mention that the author is director of Baylor College of Medicine's Initiative on Neuroscience and Law, at Stanford University. As the book progresses, it can be seen as an argument for assessing and handling criminals differently. Eagleman thinks we should pay much more attention to the physical and psychological factors which may influence individual crim [...]

    5. 5★ from both sides of my brainThe only David Eagleman book I’d read was my favourite book, Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives, a collection of extremely short extremely thought-provoking stories. So I really wasn’t sure what to expect from a book from his “day job” as a neuroscientist. I needn’t have worried.While this is a non-fiction book about the biology of the brain, it is just as intriguingly thought-provoking as Sum. There are footnotes and an extensive reference list and in [...]

    6. Neuroscientists need to be pretty smart people. Even smarter is the neuroscientist who can produce writing which is attractive and appealing to our less-informed minds. David Eagleman can. Incognito is a wide-ranging and entertaining look at the development of our thinking about thinking, and the current state of brain-science. He covers • how and why we have practically no conscious knowledge of what’s going on in the incredibly complex machinery of our brains, and why the “chief executiv [...]

    7. This was a much better book than I thought it was going to be and a much better book than you might think from even flicking through it. You know, there are cartoons and while this isn't a guaranteed sign that things will be bad, it is the next best thing to a guarantee.And I listened to this as a talking book - and the author reads the book. This, too, is generally a mistake. But he did a reasonable job even here, although, to be honest, I think he would have been better served with a professio [...]

    8. Another hard one to review. If I were going by the first few chapters, it would have been not only five stars, but one of my personal 'Best Books of 2011'. However, in the last two thirds the content took a nose dive into absurdity. The author first attempts to prove that we have no free will, because much of our behavior is ruled by the subconscious. Um. time I checked, my subconscious was still *me*. Then, the author puts forward a case that because criminals do bad things, they are clearly al [...]

    9. Bilinçaltı dediğimiz kısmın, beynin işleyişinde aslında ne kadar baskın olduğunu örnekler ve araştırma sonuçlarıyla anlatan bir kitap. Bunun yanında, özellikle yakın zamanda edinilen çeşitli bilgiler üzerinden gelecekteki toplum yaşamına, suç, ceza ve adalet kavramlarına dair yorumlarda da bulunuyor yazar. Bu konularda bilimsel gündemi yakından takip ediyor, çokça makale / kitap okuyorsanız bu kitap size ilginç gelmeyebilir. Ama genel bir ilginiz var ve bilginizi a [...]

    10. كتاب جميل جدا، يطرح فكرة جديدة عن كيفية عمل الدماغ بشكل خارج عن ارادتنابالرغم من ان هذه الفكرة موجودة في كتب أخرى، لكن الكتاب بكامله يتمحور حول ذلك.من الامثلة المذكورةكيف يتحول مرضى بارنكنسون الذين يتعالجون بالأدوية إلى مدمنين على المقامرة كيف يتسبب ورم صغير بالدماغ إلى تح [...]

    11. Отзивът ми (на английски) е при оригинала. Тук само ще кажа, че горещо препоръчвам книгата, ако се интересувате от начините, по които работи мозъкът ни. Тя съдържа множество неочевидни, а пораждащи челопляс наблюдения. Аз не съм се чувствал толкова мотивиран да си преосмисля [...]

    12. Do you believe in libertarian free will or Cartesian dualism? If so, David Eagleman’s Incognito will radically challenge your beliefs.Incognito is probably the best work of nonfiction that I have read this year (2011), and it is also one of the best books on neuroscience that I have read in quite some time. Some of the material here has been presented elsewhere (if you have read works on neuroscience or consciousness by scientists and philosophers like Antonio Damasio, V. S. Ramachandran, Jose [...]

    13. This very interesting and thought provoking book by neuroscientist David Eagleman is a little disorienting. After all, based on the numerous observations and scientific experiments he details Eagleman’s conclusion is that we have no freewill. I may think I am considering options, making decisions, and choosing, for instance, what book to read, but according to scientists who study these things I am not in charge, if by “I” what I mean is the “I” that I know--my conscious mind. It’s n [...]

    14. Disclaimer: I have not actually finished this book and do not know if I will.As someone who's very interested in neurology this book does have it's good moments, but they're largely eclipsed by a bunch of dumbing down. I don't blame Eagleman, I know it's people in the publishing industry who probably pushed this book to be like this. Following is my reaction to each element I found annoying. There's a summary at the end. Dumbing it down: Too much repetition and unnecessary metaphors. I do not kn [...]

    15. "توجد اختلافات بيننا وبين أنفسنا بقدر ما يوجد من الاختلافات بيننا وبين الآخرين ."—الكاتب الفرنسي ميشيل دي مونتين .السؤال هو:ما هي علاقة الجهاز العصبي بسلوك الإنسان ورسم واقعه ؟ و كيف يستقبل الدماغ المعلومات وكيف يغربلها لكي يجد الروابط أو الأنماط الجامعة بينها لتفسير هذا ال [...]

    16. Very simply narrated neuroscience book that explains some of the interesting neuroscientific phenomena. The writer has a easy to read style with many examples, and even though he does not go deep, he tells a lot about interesting things surrounding cognitive science. If I was a new reader to the area, probably I would have liked the book better and would give more stars. However, it was not very fulfilling for me, since I read a lot about on the same subject, and some of them were much better an [...]

    17. It's the same-old, same-old (if you've ever read a book about the brain) for the first 75%, and then some new stuff about how neuroscience can and should change the criminal justice system in the last part. I did like this comparison: finding out that we don't have as much control over ourselves as we thought we did is like astronomers discovering that the earth was not the center of the universe. It shouldn't depress us; it should invigorate further study. Not too much to apply to teaching in t [...]

    18. 29 Оct 2014: Just finished editing the Bulgarian translation. My inner selves--as is their wont at the end of a road--are still in a jumble. A more coherent review coming soon. ;)What I'd like to note right now is: this is another book I highly recommend to scientists and laymen alike. If you've ever struggled with questions such as "Telepathy? What do you mean, reading my mind? Am I supposed to have only one of them?" or "So who is the real me? The one who passionately believes in ahimsa and n [...]

    19. This book starts off with a really poor introduction. Poor, because it tries too hard, is hyperbolic, and contains two glaring errors!More on those later. The book runs the gambit of freshman-level psychology with the Freud, the subconscious, chicken sexing (not as dirty as it sounds), priming, synesthesia, etc. It introduces a theory of mind based on a team of rivals, which is pretty neat.The author puts in his two cents on the justice system. He calls for less emphasis on modifiability rather [...]

    20. Ever land on a question in the Never-Ending Book Quiz about a book that you've read but remember very little of? Ever find that, despite drawing a blank on the multiple choice answers, you usually get it right if you just go with the first choice that pops into your head? Ever wonder why? Then this book is for you.Incognito is an engaging and eye-opening romp through fundamental questions related to human consciousness, perception, and free will, as seen through the lens of neuroscientific resea [...]

    21. This was very enlightening - and I don’t think I’ll be able to think the same way about driving, or making choices, or anything I do or think again! I’ve mentioned this book in several conversations I’ve had with people recently, but now that I’m sitting down to write a review, I’m not sure that I can actually put my finger on exactly what I liked about this book - there was so much to take in, that a brief review can hardly do it justice.Some of the things I thought were especially [...]

    22. The first downfall of this book is, it is Malcolm Gladwellian in construction. The author pulls in anecdotes and creates his own analogies from "common sense" to make his point. After a while, you get the sense that he is just using the stories and studies which suit his purposes, and leaving the rest out. Very anecdotal. A quick look online and I found a few of his scientific assertions to be half-truths at best. What a shame.The second downfall is that the author isn't half the writer that Mal [...]

    23. This book is mostly a very readable account of some of the standard weird things your brain does, but it does contain a very valuable discussion of a serious nature, too. David Eagleman shows through examples how often our behaviour is ruled by factors we don’t control — things in our brain that we may not even know about, but which nonetheless change us. And of course that poses a big question when it comes to criminal behaviour: can we be blamed for “choosing” to do something when we o [...]

    24. Loy Machedo’s Book Review – Incognito by David Eagleman1. Why does your foot hit the break pedal before you are conscious of danger ahead?2. Why do you hear your name in a conversation that you didn’t think you were listening to?3. Why is a person whose name begins with J more likely to marry another person whose name begins with J?4. Why is it so difficult to keep a secret?5. How is it possible to get angry at yourself: who, exactly is mad at whom?6. Are some marriage partners more likely [...]

    25. Eagleman raises more questions about the human condition than answers and I find this delightful. I am giving this book a 5 star rating because I think he did a superior job of citing and giving his opinions of the research in neuroscience at the time of the writing of it and because he intrigues my own mind to explore his ideas further. I particularly like what Eagleman has to say about the enteric nervous system and it's importance as an example of running as a human system that is not regulat [...]

    26. كتابنا لهذا اليوم لعالم الأعصاب ديفد إيجلمان، و هو بعنوان:Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain و هو رحلةٌ حقيقيةٌ مليئةٌ بالتشويق و الإثارة يسبر فيها الكاتب أغوار الدماغ و يتجول بين جنبات و ثنايا المخ و يغوص في بحر أسراره المدهشة. يقرر الكاتب في أول صفحة من الكتاب أن مخ الإنسان - الذي لا يتج [...]

    27. الدرس الأول الذي يريد المؤلف إيصاله للقاريء هو أن لا يثق بأحاسيسه، فكونك تعتقد أن شيئا ما صحيح، أو كونك تعرف أنه صحيح لا يعني أنه صحيح فنحن لسنا واعين إلا بالقليل جداً مما يوجد في الخارج، ويقوم الدماغ بصياغة الافتراضات لتوفير الوقت والموارد ليرى العالم بالصورة التي يحتاج إل [...]

    28. I'm fascinated with anything to do with the brain and this was recommended to me. So when I saw all the reviews and that it was a New York Times best seller, I thought this has got to be good and immediately ordered the book.I soon discovered I just didn't like the style of writing, the way in which the subject was explained, skim-read looking for something really good to catch my interest, found very little, and sailed through to the end of the book at page 254.What did interest me though were [...]
