byDavid Eagleman

The book Livewired by David Eagleman is an exploration into how the brain is constantly restructuring itself. As a neuroscience student this book fascinates me. The writer takes the reader on a journey about the wonders of neurosplasticity and how it occurs as the brain receives new information about the world around it. Did you know that your brain changes shape throughout your lifetime, who knew? The book is easily accessible for the everyday educated reader and is intellectually exhilarating. He uses fascinating anecdotes that capture the breakthroughs in current research on the brain's adaptability, making the book a true page turner. This book gets the science, storytelling and wonder right. I highly recommend it for my fellow Beacon Scholars!
