Thoughts about things on the web

the individual, his brain, his consciousness and evolution

Gerald Edelman, Nobel Laureate, neuroscientist and prolific writer was recently interviewed by Discover magazine. He said many highly significant things about his recent work on human consciousness. But I have excerpted what I think is the essence of his thoughts here:

Your brain develops depending on your individual history. So, for example, identical twins will not have identical brains because each brain is exposed to different circumstances. It’s very likely that your brain is unique in the history of the universe.
