THE BRAIN BOOK

Development, Function, Disorder, Health

By Ken Ashwell. As sturdy as a textbook but far more readable, this beautifully illustrated volume offers a thorough look at the amazingly complex and intriguing structure that is the human brain. Written in clear, concise language accompanied by gorgeous full-color and 3-D images, the book explores topics such as how we sense the world, consciousness, memory, the aging brain, spinal injuries, the biological basis of mental illness, the social brain, and the effects of recreational drugs and medicines, strokes, and tumors on the brain. Sidebars provide case studies, examples that illustrate key concepts, and information on research into a topic. Grades 9 and up. Index. Glossary. 8" x 11". Firefly. 352 pages. ©2012.
