About this title

Synopsis:

The Amazing Brain series offers exciting answers about how our brain works and why we respond to the world the way we do. Questions addressed in this 4-vol. set include:

  • Do male and female brains work differently?
  • Can music enhance learning and boost brain development?
  • Was Einstein's brain more unique than the average brain?
  • What dependencies are really true addictions?
  • Can brain cells regenerate?

These and many other fascinating questions are answered in this up-to-date series on the human brain. Also included is a glossary and resources for further study.

Learn about the latest experiments and research into our sense of smell. Did you know that we shift our sense of smell from one nostril to the other throughout the day? Did you know that because astronauts in orbit are deprived of gravitational sensing, they are actually experiencing a continuous state of free fall? Did you know that scientists think they have found the brain's center for telling right and wrong and they may know how it works!

Review:

"A glossary, books, suggested Web sites, and index make these books useful for research. Recommended."
-- The Book Report (February 2002) (Book Report 20020201)

"The chapters in each title of this series are very brief and all are heavily illustrated with photographs."
-- The Book Report (February 2002) (Book Report 20020201)

"Overall, this is a great book to use as a resource during the study of the human body."
-- Science Books & Film (February 2002) (Science Books & Films 20020201)

"The focus of both of these books in the new 'Amazing Brain' series is on what happens to the brain when it is affected by disease, injury, or drugs. The latest research is covered, with explanations as to why many of the conditions still leave scientists baffled. The information is condensed, straightforward, and readable, supplemented by excellent color diagrams."
-- Booklist (February 2002) (Booklist 20011001)

"The Physical Brain and Neurological Disorders: well written with good analogies...colorful photographs and charts throughout. The diagrams are well labeled and easily understandable,.."
-- School Library Journal (Septermber 2001) (School Library Journal 20010901)
