Gerald M. Edelman ¼ 1 READ & DOWNLOADThis book is very interesting but very difficult Edelman starts by describing the neural natomy that sensory perceptions nd then processed information travels sensory perceptions nd then processed information travels in order for our brains to process information then describes how this process of ordering info is primary consciousness Combined with value systems with instinctual responses to stimuli the development of communication then language our brains evolved to Into the Grae also processbstract thoughts How our brains process language was not really discussed nd could have bridged the gap between dvanced sensory perception A description of Millenium Hall;: An 18th century novel, edited by Walter M.
