“Synaptic Self” by Joseph LeDoux

Well-structured and comprehensive overview of the historical development and recent advances in neuroscience, with focus on the functional architecture of the brain, especially the amygdala and working memory. I read this book shortly after “In Search of Memory” by Eric Kandel. There are some overlaps between the two, but overall they complement each other very well, approaching the same problems from different  perspectives.
