About Ginger Campbell
My full name is Virginia Ann Campbell, but I usually go by Ginger. I was born in Seattle, Washington, but I have spent most of my life in Alabama, where I have worked as physician for over 30 years. In 2006 I launched two science-oriented podcasts: "Books and Ideas" and "Brain Science." In 2018 I added "Graying Rainbows: Coming Out LGBT+ Later in Life."
My "Are You Sure? The Unconscious Origins of Certainty" was updated with a second edition in June 2020. It is based on several early episodes of Brain Science and is intended to explore how discoveries in neuroscience can be relevant to our daily lives.
I am also working on a larger project that will distill the key ideas from over 100 interviews and over ten years of studying and explaining neuroscience to a diverse world-wide audience.
You can follow me on Twitter where I am @docartemis or sign up for my newsletter at virginiacampbellmd.com.
I also have a Fan Page on Facebook. Books and Ideas and the Brain Science Podcast also have Facebook Fan pages.

Are You Sure? The Unconscious Origins of Certainty explores the implications of one the most surprising recent discoveries in neuroscience. There is overwhelming evidence that most of what our brain does (perhaps as much as 95%) is unconscious. It not just outside our conscious awareness, but much of it is also inaccessible to introspections. Neurologist Robert Burton explored the implications of this discovery in two recent books and in Are You Sure? Dr. Campbell shares and expands on Burton's work. She makes these surprising ideas accessible to readers of all backgrounds. In the second edition, she goes beyond the unconscious origins of certainty to explore what these discoveries might mean to our understanding of the human mind.
