The Tell-Tale Brain: Unlocking the Mystery of Human Nature

What makes us human? How are we different from the other animals? How do we understand things like self-awareness, language, humour and a range of emotions experienced by humans? Most of these questions can be understood by looking into the structures in our brain and how neurons functions.
