Description

"There is something almost magical about a beautiful, colorful, well-illustrated book... It is definitely a useful special topic book in upper middle school and high school." --National Science Teachers Association Recommends

"This volume is so much more than a beautifully illustrated coffee table book, it is both fascinatingly detailed and extraordinarily readable. No reference library, or lover of good books, should be without a copy." --Vancouver Sun

The Brain Book is a fascinating exploration of the most complex organ in the human body. Composed of billions of nerve cells, the brain controls our thoughts, movements, behavior and emotions and much more. This comprehensive, approachable and richly illustrated book explores such diverse topics as how we sense the world, consciousness and memory, disease and disorder, the aging brain, and spinal injury repair. Research moves fast in science and much has been learned since the book was first published in 2012.

This new edition includes:

  • Redesigned and captions updated throughout
  • More than 100 new photographs added
  • Text reviewed in detail and updated to reflect the most up-to-date research and novel therapies
  • Genetic control of brain development
  • Genetic control of language
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Drug abuse
  • Stem cell therapy to treat brain disease
  • Williams syndrome.
  • Hundreds of color images, including stunning 3D illustrations and scans, reveal the intricate workings of the brain and show the incredible details beyond what the eye can usually see.

    Clearly written in an accessible tone, The Brain Book demystifies the fascinating and complex workings of the brain. It is a one-stop reference for understanding the brain and an essential selection for all schools and libraries, and for anyone who wants to further explore the intricacies of this incredible organ.
