IBNA- ‘The Secret Life of the Mind: How Your Brain Thinks, Feels, and Decides’ by ‎leading Argentinian neuroscientist Mariano Sigman a guide on unexplored realms of ‎Brain has been translated into Persian. ‎

According to IBNA correspondent, the translator of the book is Mandana Farhadian and it has been published by No Publishing in Tehran.  

 

‘The Secret Life of the Mind’ raises enlightening issues:  Where do our thoughts come from? How do we make choices and trust our judgments? What is the role of the unconscious? Can we manipulate our dreams? Sigman explores the complex answers to these and many other age-old questions.

 

Over the course of his 20-year career investigating the inner workings of the human brain, Dr. Sigman has cultivated a remarkable interdisciplinary vision.

 

He draws on research in physics, linguistics, psychology, education, and beyond to explain why people who speak more than one language are less prone to dementia; how infants can recognize by sight objects they've previously only touched; how babies, even before they utter their first word, have an innate sense of right and wrong; and how we can "read" the thoughts of vegetative patients by decoding patterns in their brain activity.
