David Eagleman (born April 25, 1971) is an American neuroscientist, author, and science communicator. He teaches neuroscience at Stanford University and is CEO and co-founder of Neosensory, a company that develops devices for sensory substitution. He also directs the non-profit Center for Science and Law, which seeks to align the legal system with modern neuroscience and is Chief Science Officer and co-founder of BrainCheck, a digital cognitive health platform used in medical practices and health systems. He is known for his work on brain plasticity, time perception, synesthesia, and neurolaw.
86 billion neurons weave constellations of meaning. Our brains are much more than this mass accumulation of neuronal activity, though—rather, they’re breathing, evolving systems that learn to create sensory reality from mere information. The same organ that enables you to pick up subliminal social cues on a date allows amputees to operate robotic arms with relative ease. Neuroscientists are only just beginning to explore these remarkable capabilities of the constantly shifting human brain. Renowned writer and neuroscientist David Eagleman brings readers to the cusp of new research in the realm of brain plasticity, connecting the dots of our neural portraits and sparking an internal realization: We are much more than we think.
