Michael S. Gazzaniga carried out original studies of human brain laterality and function in split-brain patients, work that has rich implications for consciousness, free will, and the self. He introduced the term cognitive neuroscience, helped develop the discipline, and founded the discipline’s flagship journal. More recently, he has effectively written several books for a broad audience about brain and mind, showing generations of readers the human face of science.

Keywords:   human, laterality, split-brain, consciousness, cognitive neuroscience
