Your Brain Is a Time Machine: The Neuroscience and Physics of Time

“Beautifully written, eloquently reasoned…Mr. Buonomano takes us off and running on an edifying scientific journey.” —Carol Tavris, Wall Street Journal

In Your Brain Is a Time Machine, leading neuroscientist Dean Buonomano embarks on an “immensely engaging” exploration of how time works inside the brain (Barbara Kiser, Nature). The human brain, he argues, is a complex system that not only tells time, but creates it; it constructs our sense of chronological movement and enables “mental time travel”—simulations of future and past events. These functions are essential not only to our daily lives but to the evolution of the human race: without the ability to anticipate the future, mankind would never have crafted tools or invented agriculture. This virtuosic work of popular science will lead you to a revelation as strange as it is true: your brain is, at its core, a time machine.

About the Author

Dean Buonomano is a professor of neurobiology and psychology at UCLA and a leading theorist on the neuroscience of time. His previous book, Brain Bugs: How the Brain’s Flaws Shape Our Lives, was a Wall Street Journal bestseller.

Review

Apparently elastic and possibly illusory, time is a puzzle to physicists and neuroscientists alike. Dean Buonomano straddles the divide, invoking cutting-edge theory and research as he wrestles with theoften glaring mismatch between physical and ‘felt’ time. The result is immensely engaging.
NatureBuonomano lays out a wealth of complex concepts in an entertaining,digestible way. He admits that both physics and neuroscience are stillfar from understanding the true nature of time, but his book will makeyou question your own perceptions and marvel at the fact that your brain is probably “the best time machine you will ever own”.
Diana Kwon, Scientific American Mind

Your Brain Is a Time Machine can be disquieting, as the implications settle in, for example, of inhabiting a universe in which all moments exist. But the book ultimately leads to an internal quieting, as one realises that all the profound scientific discoveries of the past century or so are struggling with a common enemy: time.
Anil Ananthaswamy, New Scientist

Mr. Buonomano sets out boldly to accomplish what Saint Augustine did not dare–to explain time in its infinite varieties.
Carol Tavris, Wall Street Journal
