More About The Birth of the Mind by Gary F. Marcus
 
 
 
Overview
In "The Birth of the Mind," award-winning cognitive scientist Gary Marcus irrevocably alters the nature vs. nurture debate by linking the findings of the Human Genome Project to the development of the brain. Scientists have long struggled to understand how a tiny number of genes could contain the instructions for building the human brain, arguably the most complex device in the known universe. Synthesizing up-to-the-minute research with his own original findings on child development, Marcus is the first to resolve this apparent contradiction. Vibrantly written and completely accessible to the lay reader, "The Birth of the Mind" will forever change the way we think about our origins and ourselves.
