About this book

Introduction

“There are books on the brain and books on the mind. However, only occasionally one finds a scholarly written thesis that explains how brain circuits give rise to perceptions, thoughts and consciousness. Bill Klemm’s book belongs to this exceptional category. Using lucidly explained examples, he takes the ready on a cheerful journey from the computational elements of circuits to large-scale interactions of neuronal networks illustrating how such dynamics can support memories, decision making, perceptual binding and the conscious thought. A highly recommended reading.”

György Buzsáki, Rutgers University. Author of Rhythms of the Brain

 

Atoms of Mind is an excellent, far reaching, and well-written discussion of brain-mind relationships, including brain physiology, dreams, free will, personal responsibility, and possible origins of subconscious and conscious processes in neural firing patterns.”

 

Paul Nunez, author of Brain, Mind, and the Structure of Reality

 

“Bill Klemm's book provides a wonderful and incredibly insightful overview for the most exciting topics in modern neuroscience, ranging from its philosophical foundations to the latest ground-breaking discoveries.  Anyone wanting to have a global understanding of human minds must read it.”

Daeyeol Lee, Yale University School of Medicine
