Antonio Damasio: Self Comes to Mind

Antonio Damasio: Self Comes to Mind

"His work has helped us understand decision making, social behavior, and even consciousness…" —Charlie Rose

Antonio Damasio is the David Dornsife Professor of Neuroscience and director of the Brain and Creativity Institute at the University of Southern California. He is an internationally recognized leader in neuroscience and has made seminal contributions to the understanding of how the brain processes memory, language, emotions, and decisions. His books include Descartes’ Error, The Feeling of What Happens, and Looking for Spinoza. His new book, Self Comes to Mind, will be published this fall.
