Iain McGilchrist M.D. is a former Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and former Consultant Psychiatrist and Clinical Director at the Bethlem Royal & Maudsley Hospital, London. He was a Research Fellow in neuroimaging at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore. He has published original articles and research papers in a wide range of publications on topics in literature, medicine and psychiatry. His latest book, published by Yale in November 2009, is The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World. Iain is also on our Board of Advisors here at The Neuropsychotherapist.

I would highly recommend The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World. It is a broad and engaging look at the distinctions between our brain hemispheres and how we, as an evolving society in the West, are creating a left-hemisphere biased world. You can get a free copy of the introduction to the book on Iain’s website.
