Rita also talks about the brain, consciousness, and behavior to a wide range of groups at seminars, conferences, and workshops around the world.From Booklist:
Using computer-generated three-dimensional images, graphics, and clear explanatory text presented in brief sections, the follow-up to The Human Body Book (2007) examines each aspect of the brain’s structure and functions. Carter covers both the physiological and psychological aspects of the brain and more than 50 brain-related disorders as well as providing a comprehensive, layered brain atlas. Sections on brain function treat topics such as “Movement and Control,” “The Social Brain,” and “Memory.” A glossary provides definitions of medical and other terms, and an index aids navigation for readers looking for specific topics. A time line of investigation into the brain and a two-page spread on “Landmarks in Neuroscience” help readers put their newly gained knowledge into context. The highlight of the volume is the illustrations. Pages are full of color photographs, charts, diagrams, and other graphics, including specially commissioned brain scans. This is a valuable resource for any high-school, college, and public library collection. Libraries should be aware that it comes with a DVD. --Sara Marcus
