Reviews
"Luiz Pessoa's The Entangled Brain should be welcomed as an equally informed and bold endeavor. . . Thanks to its engaging style, Pessoa's book is ultimately aimed at all readers who are interested in how the brain really works."
--Cognitive Neuropsychiatry

"The Entangled Brain is part survey, part manifesto. It provides an interesting and valuable overview of recent research on emotion, learning, extinction learning, the evolution of the human brain, and other phenomena, interspersed with pleas for a different approach to studying the mind and brain...Pessoa's guiding theme is easily stated: neuroscience has been dominated by a view that the brain can be understood via an analysis into small, local functional units, but the actual functions that cause behavior are highly distributed and a proper understanding of them will not be possible with a reductive local account."
