One of the recently added books is “A brief tour of human consciousness”, by neuroscientist Vilayanur S. Ramachandran. The essence of that book is available (under the title ‘The Emerging Mind’) at the BBC - Radio 4 - Reith Lectures 2003 site. There you will find the audio streams and text transcripts for all 5 lectures, and many other great links. Highly recommended!
Rama (as many people call him) has just released a new book, "The Man with the Phantom Twin: Adventures in the Neuroscience of the Human Brain" (coming up soon in my reading list).
He also appeared in the excellent TED talks series back in October 2007 (see below).
