Have you ever asked yourself why you can’t remember anything from before the age of three, why people experience deja vu, or how a bundle of cells in our heads can produce the remarkable phenomenon that is human consciousness? Drawing on the latest neuroscience research, this simple visual guide uncovers the hidden workings of the human brain.

How the Brain Works begins with an introduction to the brain’s anatomy, showing you how to tell your motor cortex from your mirror neurons. From anatomy, it moves on to function, explaining how the brain works constantly and unnoticed to regulate processes such as heartbeat and breathing; to how it collects information from the external world to bring it to life as sights, sounds, and smells. The chapters that follow cover memory and learning, consciousness and personality, and emotions and communication.

There’s also a guide to the brain’s disorders, including physical problems such as tumors and strokes, and psychological and functional disorders, ranging from autism to schizophrenia.

Illustrated with bold graphics and step-by-step illustrations, and peppered with bite-sized factoids and question-and-answer features, this is the perfect introduction to the fascinating world of the human brain.
