Brain Works isn't a cook's tour of neuroscience; this companion to the National Geographic series is a full immersion into how your brain is functioning now. In vivid, user-friendly language and unforgettable illustrations, this coffee table hardcover guides you through the near miraculous cerebral sleight-of-hand that make our sights, sounds, and memories intelligible to us. To achieve that goal, author Michael Sweeney draws on the expertise of scientists and researchers from fields including neurology, psychology, chemistry, audiology, and ophthalmology. Other participants include bestselling authors Oliver Sacks, Elizabeth Loftus, Dan Simons, and, believe it or not, Penn & Teller.
