Within our skulls resides an organ more powerful than the fastest supercomputer, the ultimate multi-tasker controlling everything from the retrieval of memories to complex reasoning – and even breathing. The Rough Guide to the Brain provides an absorbing and accessible introduction to the science of the mind. From how the human brain evolved over millions of years and how it differs from those of other animals to the power of positive thinking and extrasensory perception hypnosis. Illustrated throughout with photos and diagrams, this Rough Guide is guaranteed to get you thinking.
