Overview

This revised, updated edition of a remarkable, highly praised book takes an in-depth look at the latest scientific findings about this most fascinating human organ. Pulitzer Prize winning author Ronald Kotulak reveals new understandings about how nature builds the brain then develops it during early life. In easy-to-understand text he explains how scientists have changed their once-held belief that brains learn from a preset, unchangeable set of rules.

Perhaps most important, this enlightening book explores how the brain gets damaged and how the brain heals itself. The implications are staggering for the millions suffering from Alzheimer's, brain injury, or alcoholism.

Looks at the latest findings in brain research, based on interviews with some 300 researchers and on the author's Pulitzer Prize winning series of articles in the Chicago Tribune. Explains in easy-to- understand language how nature builds the brain, how it develops, how it undergoes constant physical changes in response to environment, and how it can be damaged by trauma, alcohol, and environmental threats. Discusses how aggression is triggered in the brain, and ways to keep the brain healthy. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
