Synopsis: Traces the development of scientific knowledge about the brain and how it works.

From School Library Journal: Grade 5-8 Rather than another introduction to the workings of the brain, this is more of a who's who of neurological research, outlining the contributions of about three dozen scientists. The book begins with Aristotle's speculation that the brain served to cool the blood after it left the heart, then continues with various studies and experiments since performed that re vealed the true functions of the nervous system. Chapters cover the anatomy of the brain, mental disorders and brain dys function, workings of the brain sections and nerves, brain ``sides,'' and sleep. Il lustrations are nicely detailed black-and- white drawings, both anatomical diagrams and portraits. However, the diagram of the autonomic nervous system, which is divided into ``sympathetic'' and ``para sympathetic'' functions, is confusing, as the two terms are never defined. The writ ing is interesting, readable, and lively. Be cause of its brevity and style, the book is not packed with information like Larry Kettelkamp's The Human Brain (Enslow, 1986) or the Silversteins' World of the Brain (Morrow, 1986), but as introductory material it is a good additional title.
