Summary, etc.:
This book "begins with an introduction to the brain's anatomy, showing you how to tell your motor cortex from your mirror neurons. It moves on to function, explaining how the brain works constantly and unnoticed to regulate heartbeat and breathing, and how it collects information to produce the experiences of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. The chapters that follow cover memory and learning, consciousness and personality, and emotions and communication"--Publisher marketing.
