Introducing the Mind and Brainby Angus Gellatly, Oscar Zarate (Illustrator)
How does the biological tissue of which the brain is composed gives rise to activities which our culture refers to as "the mind?" How can three pounds of electric sponge provide for the experience of awe and enchantment: of memory, priority and experience.This provocative volume explains what the sciences have to say about planning and action, language, attention, emotions and vision. Author and illustrator trace the historical development, of ideas about the brain and its function from antiquity to the age of neuro-imaging.
