AUTHOR

David Eagleman

I'm a neuroscientist at Stanford during the day and a writer (of fiction and non-fiction) at night. I made an Emmy-nominated series on PBS/BBC entitled "The Brain". As a believer in the endeavor of popular science, I travel frequently to give public lectures. It has been an incredible pleasure to meet warm, funny, like-minded readers everywhere I visit.
