Neuroscience: Science of the Brain
AN INTRODUCTION FOR YOUNG STUDENTS
“Inside our heads, weighing about 1.5 kg, is an astonishing living organ consisting of billions of tiny cells. It enables us to sense the world around us, to think and to talk. The human brain is the most complex organ of the body, and arguably the most complex thing on earth. This booklet is an introduction for young students.
In this booklet, we describe what we know about how the brain works and how much there still is to learn. Its study involves scientists and medical doctors from many disciplines, ranging from molecular biology through to experimental psychology, as well as the disciplines of anatomy, physiology and pharmacology. Their shared interest has led to a new discipline called neuroscience – the science of the brain.”
“Neuroscience – Science of the Brain is primarily aimed at sixth form students or first year undergraduates. Richard Morris creates a wonderfully neat and concise ‘primer’ of neuroscience, touching on everything from development to drug addiction, with leading UK neuroscientists contributing chapters on their respective fields of expertise in a simple yet imaginative and visually appealing way. Any student uncertain what to specialise in can’t fail to be swayed by this refreshing booklet!”
