For so long, the brain was the great unknown of human biology; an evolved complex of cells, chemicals and electricity, which eluded even the understanding of its own grey matter. Now, in this comprehensive guide, the most complicated concepts from across the field of neuroscience - such as memory, addiction and mind mapping - are broken down into easily understandable bite-sized pieces, to give everyone the chance to understand their own brain.
Includes sections on:
-The anatomy of the brain
-Neurons, synapses and axons - the building blocks of the brain
-Differences in male and female development
-Modern treatment of mental illness
-The effects on the brain of different food and stimulants
-Memory, senses, cravings
-Fight or flight
-Perception and sensation
-The future of neuroscience
