Digby Tantam presents his ground-breaking theory of the interbrain, the idea that human beings are endlessly connected by a continuous interplay of non-verbal communication of which we are unaware. Considering social smiles and the way emotions can spread from one person to another, he explores the research that shows how our brains are linked and draws out the implications of the interbrain for our understanding of empathy, social communication, psychology and group behaviour.

Exploring this often overlooked aspect of our human nature, Tantam demonstrates how the interbrain has huge significance for psychology, psychiatry and sociology and can transform our understanding of war, morality, terrorism, psychopathy and much more.

Reviews:

'The Interbrain is a groundbreaking, wide-ranging, and endlessly fascinating meditation on our innate ability to feel 'connected' to other people -- and on what can happen when that precious connection is diminished. It's compelling reading for anyone interested in the subtle mechanisms at work behind the essential experiences that make us human.'
- Steve Silberman, author of 'NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism' and 'How to Think Smarter About People Who Think Differently'

'Digby Tantam's book, The Interbrain, is a necessary and innovative exploration of the biological and neurological essence of human nature. It opens our intellectual and conceptual vistas onto a more expansive and nuanced understanding of our interconnectedness. Such a stance, and such an argument, grounded as it is in first class research and thinking, is vitally necessary in an age in which fragmentation of the world, societies, communities and, indeed, individuals, occurs often unchallenged as the inescapable way of things. It is not. Read The Interbrain to find out why. Highly recommended.'
- Dexter Dias QC, human rights lawyer and author of 'The Ten Types of Human'
