Descartes’ Error

Descartes' Error BookI finally finished to read this book (it took more than I thought), now doesn’t seem much controversial as was ten years ago. The book put back the emotions in the reason processing, and shows examples of patients similar to Phineas Gage’s (I knew first by Ripley ;-) ) who had frontal lobe damage due an accident, he was ‘unaffected’ in the cognitive task, he was aware of everything before and after the accident, but he developed a coarse attitude and he couldn’t work with others due this.

The fact is this book is a good reading for understanding some neurobiology aspects of brain.
