At the beginning of the Europe's turbulent seventeenth century, no
one knew how the brain worked. By the century's close, the science
of the brain had taken root, helping to overturn many common
misconceptions about the human body as well as to unseat
centuries-old philosophies of man and God. Presiding over this
evolution was the founder of modern neurology, Thomas Willis, a
fascinating, sympathetic, even heroic figure who stands at the
centre of an extraordinary group of scientists and philosophers
known as the 'Oxford circle'. Chronicled here in vivid detail are
their groundbreaking revelations and often gory experiments that
first enshrined the brain as the chemical engine of reason,
emotion, and madness - indeed as the very seat of the human soul.
