Connectome: How the Brain’s Wiring Makes Us Who We Are

Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in February 2012

”… the best lay book on brain science I've ever read.” Wall Street Journal book review by Daniel Levitin, from McGill University, and the Author of This Is Your Brain on Music and The World in Six Songs.

"Sebastian Seung scales the heights of neuroscience and casts his brilliant eye around, describing the landscape of its past and boldly envisioning a future when we may understand our own brains and thus ourselves." Kenneth Blum, Executive Director, Center for Brain Science, Harvard University

"Sebastian Seung can do it all. On top of being recognized as a superb physicist, a whiz with computers, and a path-breaking neuroscientist, he's a terrific writer, as inspiring as he is clear and good humored." Steven Strogatz, Cornell University, author of Sync and New York Times columnist
