  • Short, clear discussion on the mechanical workings of the brain
  • Covers the details of brain science in an accessible way
  • Up to date coverage of developments of brain research
  • Suggests directions future research might take
  • Discusses many of the brain's actions that people wonder about, such as memories, perceptions, and motor control

 
How does the brain work? How different is a human brain from other creatures' brains? Is the human brain still evolving? 
  
In this fascinating book, Michael O'Shea provides a non-technical introduction to the main issues and findings in current brain research, and gives a sense of how neuroscience addresses questions about the relationship between the brain and the mind. Chapters tackle subjects such as brain processes, perception, memory, motor control and the causes of 'altered mental states'. A final section discusses possible future developments in neuroscience, touching on artificial intelligence, gene therapy, the importance of the Human Genome Project, drugs by design, and transplants.
