39: David Eagleman – The Inside Story of Your Ever Changing Brain

Richard Kilgarriff shares OMI with world-famous neuroscientist David Eagleman, including an entirely new concept on why we dream.
In his latest book LIVEWIRED – THE INSIDE STORY OF YOUR EVER CHANGING BRAIN, he takes us on a fantastic voyage under the cortex and into the neural networks that shape who we are from the day we’re born to the end of life.
Why do babies pay attention to everything, only to lose interest in adult life and how can we recreate that curiosity? How has lockdown affected our sense of time and space? Why do different parts of the brain control different parts of the body and what happens when one of them fails?
