Sebastian Seung has written a revolutionary brain science book called THE CONNECTOME: How the Brain's Wiring Makes Us Who We Are published by Houghton Mifflin
Harcourt, 2012 (i-xxii, 359 pages), which should be read and discussed throughout the Humanist Galaxy.
Seung is a professor at MIT who is on a quest to discover the biological basis of identity. He thinks it lies in the pattern of connections among all of the neurons in your brain, which together he named "connectome!"
Your neurons change slowly over time as you learn and grow because of the interaction between your genetic inheritance and your life experiences. The new brain knowledge explains where your inherent human nature or biology (physical body) interacts with your nurture or your cultural experiences and lifestyle choices (mental activity) and how those choices and decisions (soft-wired learned behavior), in turn, interact with your physical body (hard-wired genetic inheritance).
