About the Author:

Rita Carter is a science and medical writer who contributes to many publications, including New Scientist and numerous newspapers. She has twice been awarded the Medical Journalists' Association prize for her outstanding contribution to medical journalism. She is the author of several books that have been published internationally, including Consciousness, Multiplicity: The New Science of Personality and Mapping the Mind, which was shortlisted for the Rhône-Poulenc Prize (now the Royal Society Prize for Science Books). Rita also lectures about the brain 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
