The winner of The Brain that Changes Itself by Norman Doidge was Rebel. Easy enough, as there were only two people who posted by Friday night. I wrote Kailana on one and Rebel on the other and let Edgar bat them around a bit, then picked one.
Let me know where to mail it, Rebel!
Bybee, you would really enjoy this one. It is a fascinating look at the brain and what can now be done with new technology! Doidge knows how to keep you interested even when it gets technical.
I'm still reading Musicophilia by Oliver Sacks (pretty much "the brain on music") and find that my lack of musical knowledge is a drawback, but love the remarkable way people can describe the way music can affect the brain.
