Readers of the Science Times section on Tuesdays in the New York Times are familiar with the high-quality features to be found there. Now the best science and nature articles have been collected in a series of books on Fish, Birds, Fossils and Evolution, and The Brain.
The Science Times brain book contains 45 articles on topics ranging from the nature of dreams and consciousness to the making of memories. For all its seeming structural simplicity, the brain is a mysterious and complicated organ, and a great deal of brain structure and function are covered in this book. Sensory systems and imagination get fascinating article treatment, as do addiction and homosexuality. Sidebars and illustrations maintain the journalistic tone. --Therese LittletonFrom the Back Cover:
