Even though this book claimed to help its readers learn about how our brains work, much of the science of how brains work, such as the different parts and the process of signal transduction, only occupy around 20 percent of the book. Nevertheless, I still would recommend it for people who are new to the subject and want to start with a good book. It moves on to function, explaining how the brain works constantly and unnoticed to regulate heartbeat and breathing, and how it collects information to produce the experiences of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. Established in 1962, the MIT Press is one of the largest and most distinguished university presses in the world and a leading publisher of books and journals at the intersection of science, technology, art, social science, and design. Illustrated with bold graphics and step-by-step artworks, and sprinkled with bite-sized factoids and question-and-answer features, this is the perfect introduction to the fascinating world of the human brain.

The Performance Cortex offers us a new way of thinking about athleticism, and is a must-read for the cerebral sports fan. Discover the hidden electrical world inside your nervous system using DIY, hands-on experiments, for all ages. The author’s thesis is that intelligent life evolved not once, but twice, and that octopuses are the closest we’ll ever get to communication with aliens. Maker Mind is a weekly newsletter with science-based insights on creativity, mindful productivity, better thinking and lifelong learning. Greg Gage is an NIH-award winning neuroscientist and cofounder of Backyard Brains—an organization that develops open source tools that allow amateurs and students to participate in neural discovery.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.

Some experiments use invertebrates (such as insects), and the book provides a thoughtful framework for the ethical use of these animals in education. It's interesting to know that female brain is vulnerable to mental illnesses and male brain is prone to develop autism. Armed with some DIY electrodes, readers will get to see what brain activity really looks like through simple neuroscience experiments.

Overall I felt like I was reading articles from a weekend newspaper magazine supplement, or a lifestyle type magazine. You can watch as pictures travel through your eyes and into your mind, find out how you choose the perfect ice cream, and take a spin (or three) on the sleep machine. Hagemann present easy-to-follow tips for sharpening focus, increasing retention, improving decision-making, and ultimately, thriving as a leader in the workplace. Designed by two neuroscientists and an anatomist, it’s a fun way to learn about the structure and function of the human brain.We at Penguin Random House Australia acknowledge that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are the Traditional Custodians and the first storytellers of the lands on which we live and work. While this book is quite informative, and quite good for some light reading, it is not meant to be used as an educational textbook. It’s not just a collection of stuff that’s appeared in the other collections, although I think a few of the info boxes and so on did come from other New Scientist publications originally.
