In How Your Brain Works, leading neuroscientists and New Scientist introduce the evolution and anatomy of the brain viewed through traits such as memory, emotions, sleep, sensing and perception.
Ever wondered what's going on inside your head? You are your brain. Everything that makes you you, and all your experiences of the world, are somehow conjured up by 1.4 kilograms of grey matter inside your skull. That might seem impossible, but science has advanced so much that we now understand not just its structures and inner workings but also how it can give rise to perception, consciousness, emotions, memories, intelligence, sleep and more.
How Your Brain Works explores the amazing world inside your head. Discover the evolution and anatomy of the brain. Learn how we can peer inside it and watch it at work and how the latest technology can allow us to control our minds and those of others.
