Hello everyone. I’ve always been very interested in neuroscience and cognitive science. Lately, I have been learning more about more about the subject, so I thought I should organize a thread based on it. I’ll update this thread every so often with new research that comes out, lectures, articles, and so on. I hope you will contribute some information of your own. Thanks.

How the Mind Works by Pinker, although quite dated now, was the book that made me take a degree in Neuroscience. I don't really have heroes, but he's about the closest that it gets for me.

Antonio Damasio (the feeling of what happens), Daniel C Dennett (consciousness explained) and William H Calvin (mosaics of the mind) are also very good authors (my favourite books of theirs in parenthesis).
