Description

The brain is, in that sense, like having a supercomputer with a faster processor, with memory and hard disk into hundred RAMs, very broad bands, capable of generating not only their own programs, but also the new hardware However, if you do not know what your brain is capable to do, that would be as if you use a "Super-blue" computer only as a word processor or worst scenario, just to play backgammon. You are wasted about ninety-nine percent of a super machine and the worst is that if you do not use, like whatever organ in your body. But guess what? That will be out of order. Same goes for the brain, legs, arms and even your tongue. In this book, I tried to make a horizontal inclusive connection with brain areas, but also with history of our species, to discover biased, myths and therefore, poorly understood mechanisms.
