Welcome to Neurocomic, a visually captivating adventure through the brain. Neurocomic is populated by quirky creatures, bizarre landscapes and famous neuroscientists. Our nameless protagonist evades vindictive colossal squid, negotiates mysterious trap doors, battles Boschean narcotic demons and navigates forests of neurons to take you on a rapturous journey through the most complex organic structure in the universe. Neurocomic makes a baffling, mysterious subject approachable for the layman but it's also a wonderful object in its own right, one that cries out to be picked up and read. Produced in association with the Wellcome Trust, the largest medical charity in the world, Neurocomic is a wonderful introduction to the complexities of the brain.

This is a book for laymen and beginner students, not experts, but if you're interested in taking a surreal but simple trip through the incredibly complicated landscape inside your skull, this might be the rabbit hole you're looking for.
This remarkable collaboration between Dr. Hana Ros (and dog knows I love few things more than a female neuroscientist) and neuroscience-PhD-turned-illustrator Dr. Matteo Farinella, with support from the Wellcome Trust, explains the inner workings of the brain in delightful and illuminating black-and-white illustrations, covering everything from perception and hallucinations to memory and emotional recall to consciousness and the difference between the mind and the brain.
