This award-winning science book uses the latest findings from neuroscience research and brain imaging technology to take you on a journey into the human brain.

Computer-generated 3-D artworks, brain MRI scans, and stunning graphics reveal the brain's anatomy in unprecedented detail. Step-by-step sequences unravel the complex processes of brain function, such as how nerves transmit signals, how memories are laid down and recalled, and how we register emotions. The book also looks at fundamental and compelling questions about the brain, such as what it means to be conscious, the nature of creativity, what happens when we're asleep, and whether the brains of men and women are different.

Including coverage of over 50 brain-related diseases and disorders - from strokes to brain tumours and schizophernia - The Brain Book is not only an accessible and authoritative reference book to a fascinating part of the human body, but also an essential manual for students and healthcare professionals.
