About the Book

To romance: “to tell stories that are not true, or to describe an event in a way that makes it sound better than it was – in this case, more scientific than it is. A myth is not always a fairy story, but most often, the presentation of facts belonging to one category in the idioms appropriate to another. Usually, there is some factual basis for the narrative. This book seeks to expose neuromythology – mythology developed by scientists in their attempts to describe the human mind in material and mechanistic terms.
