From Booklist:

This offering from the Gray Matter series homes in on a number of topics related to the brain and how it functions. Topics presented in the 10 chapters include neurons, the senses, the autonomic nervous system, sleep, and language. Vera-Portocarrero cannot be accused of talking down to his audience. The terminology is more technical than in most books written for young people, and many high-school students will find themselves challenged by the difficult reading level and the dry writing style. Still, researchers may find useful information here. Abundant endmatter concludes, and colorful illustrations and diagrams help to elucidate the complicated material. For larger collections.
