Summary
"The culmination of renowned neuroscientist D.F. Swaab's life's work, We Are Our Brains unlocks the mysteries of the most complex organism in the human body, providing a fascinating overview of the brain's role in nearly every aspect of human existence. In short, engaging chapters, Swaab explains what is going on in our brains at every stage of life, including how a fetus's brain develops and the role that pregnancy plays in solidifying certain aspects of our identity; the radical neurological changes that occur during adolescence; what happens when we fall in love; and the neurological basis for a host of different disorders and personality traits"--
