"Have you ever wondered how you store memories or what causes a rush of emotions? Why do we dream or sleepwalk? What causes the feeling of déjà vu? Many of these questions have been explored by scientists and psychologists, many of whom believe we have only tapped into a small portion of the brain's potential.
This book looks at the differences between the conscious and unconscious mind--how the resting unconscious mind is responsible for sleepwalking and how the mind can play tricks called hallucinations. Consciousness looks at some of the more mysterious phenomena related to our consciousness and unconsciousness, as well as the science that might explain them.
