Stanislas Dehaene
Through his investigation into how the human (and animal) brain creates mathematics, Stanislas Dehaene provides an indispensable and comprehensive survey of the latest and best thought on the subject. Marching steadily forward with simple explanations of complex topics, the author somehow even manages to make a discussion of the various brain imaging techniques and how they work riveting. Bringing together psychology, evolution, neuroscience and mathematics education with copious illustrations, this book will have more than your occipital temporal lobe buzzing.
