Written for general readers, this fascinating volume examines the way the nervous system governs our daily activity. What is memory, and how is it possible to lose it? How do we see? When we smell, what is happening in our nose? From a description of the physiological processes involved in these everyday phenomena, the author goes on to consider how sensation acquires meaning--as in the occurrence of pain for example--and how the nervous system is affected by external influences. Thoroughly revised, this edition surveys recent work in neurobiology and includes many new illustrations.
