Synaptic Self: How Our Brains Become Who We Are

The brain is a wonderful territory for scientific exploration but those who study it are only a little way in from the frontier. There is an enormous area of unexplored territory. To be blunt, there is a great deal that we don't understand about the way it works. The bottom line of Joseph Ledoux's Synaptic Self is that we are our synapses. Synapses are the tiny gaps between nerve cells across which chemical signals pass from one nerve cell to the next. These can stimulate or inhibit the nerve cell from firing and it is the combined influence of many inputs that determine if it does fire.

Love is a many-moleculed thing

DH Wilkinson once calculated, rather whimsically, that an average human life lasts about 10 9 seconds whereas an average sensory trace lasts less than one second pace Buddha, St John of the Cross and an extremely select group of others. Confined though I am within my own solipsistic nutshell, I know I am more than the sum of a billion-odd parts, and suspect that the same might be true of my fellow humans as well. But between sensation and experience yawns a dreadful gap, long lamented by philosophers, and latterly by neuroscientists too. His book is a well-written and commendably comprehensive survey of many of the big ideas in modern neuroscience. It is manifestly not an answer to the question posed by its title. LeDoux's central concern is nothing less than the synaptic interface between the ancient emotional circuitry of the limbic brain and the neocortical apparatus of cognition and motivation. The operation of this interface in emotional and goal directed behaviours and the mechanisms by which it is changed by experience are the great themes of his book.
