Even seemingly simple and mundane tasks such as walking or sipping a beverage requires a significant amount of coordination across our senses, which our brain orchestrates. From our families, friends, co-workers and business partners, our societies are built on layers of complex social interactions. If it becomes too scientific, it is not likely to be popular; but if it dumbs the science down too much, it tends not to be taken seriously by discerning readers.I have left out the various real-world examples Eagleman uses to bolster his arguments, for fear of bloating it up. Eagleman clearly has a lot of passion for neurobiology and psychology, and references quite a few of his own experiments and what he learned from it.

Book extract: ‘The Brain: The Story of You’, by David Eagleman

To understand something like violence or genocide, we need to drill down one step further, to dehumanisation. structured around crucial and wide-ranging questions, saturated with per- sonal and social relevance. In 1994, over a period of 100 days, the Hutus in Rwanda killed 800,000 Tutsis, mostly with machetes. The problem is that incarceration triggers an expensive and vicious cycle of relapse and re-imprisonment.But in every moment of our lives, our brain circuitry is decoding the emotions of others based on extremely subtle facial cues.

Our brain is always in conflict with itself, playing off the rewards of one decision against the other: also immediate gratification against future benefit.They had taken refuge inside a United Nations compound after the town was surrounded by siege forces. Your brain is a relentless shape-shifter, constantly rewriting its own circuitry- and because your experiences are unique, so are the vast detailed patterns in your neural networks. It is broken into well-defined chapters; each chapter into blurbs of writing with relevant headers at the top.

In other words, the homeless have become dehumanised: the brain is viewing them more like objects and less like people. Our brain does a great job of filtering, editing and adapting the sensory input we obtain, so that we get a picture of reality that is censored, based on what we need to know for survival and what the brain already knows. So not only was it possible to implant false new memories in the brain, but people embraced and embellished them, unknowingly weaving fantasy into the fabric of their identity. As Harris puts it, by shutting down the systems that see the homeless person as a fellow human, one doesn’t have to experience the unpleasant pressures of feeling bad about not giving money. Harris showed volunteers photographs of people from different social groups, for example, homeless people, or drug addicts.While it may not be apparent to us, we have already begun to use technology to enhance what our bodies can do.
