Editorial Reviews

Neuroscience is a topic as complex as the brain itself, but this audiobook from renowned neurologists and scientists Ammar al-Chalabi, R. Shane Delamont, and Martin Turner does an excellent job at distilling this expansive field into a concise, listenable audiobook primer. Prolific and charismatic audiobook performer Richard Aspel lends his rich and character-filled voice to this reading, infusing this scientific topic with interest and humor. Beginning with a history of the human brain and moving into a discussion of how it evolved, how it works, its anatomy, and the science surrounding observing the brain, this is a multifaceted and in-depth investigation of humanity's most important organ.

Publisher's Summary

It has been remarked that if the brain were so simple we could understand it, we would be so simple we couldn’t. Commencing with a brief history of neuroscience, from the ancient practice of drilling holes in the head to relieve headaches to the latest results from MRI and CT scans, this accessible guide sets out to explore exactly what we do know about the brain.

Including the most up-to-date research on the cerebral processes behind a wide array of human activity - from our capacity for language to how we remember - this lively and entertaining introduction assumes no previous scientific knowledge and offers a tantalising glimpse into man’s most complex organ.
