Description

Techniques to record signals from living brains were once thought to be the realm of advanced university labs. The author’s thesis is that intelligent life evolved not once, but twice, and that octopuses are the closest we’ll ever get to communication with aliens. The MIT Press has been a leader in open access book publishing for over two decades, beginning in 1995 with the publication of William Mitchell’s City of Bits, which appeared simultaneously in print and in a dynamic, open web edition. Reads more like a HS textbook from the 1990s with a lot of over generalizations/ stereotypes than an up to date overview of what is currently known.

Greg Gage is an NIH-award winning neuroscientist and cofounder of Backyard Brains—an organization that develops open source tools that allow amateurs and students to participate in neural discovery.Established in 1962, the MIT Press is one of the largest and most distinguished university presses in the world and a leading publisher of books and journals at the intersection of science, technology, art, social science, and design. But some time ago I decided that if a book hadn't grabbed me by page 80 or up to 100, then sorry, moving on.

It provides an accessible guide to how the brain's structures and functions determine how the mind works, and how this fits into the bigger picture of our evolution and biology as a species. I have no prior knowledge or background in neurosciences, which makes the book a little hard to read for someone like me but still, very accessible. This is one of those graphical magazine format information books on a topic you see out there so much. How the Brain Works begins with an introduction to the brain’s anatomy, showing you how to tell your motor cortex from your mirror neurons. We honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' continuous connection to Country, waters, skies and communities.

From learning about the blood vessels in the head to what goes wrong when someone has a stroke, from how alcohol affects the brain to diagnosing meningitis, from anorexia nervosa to post natal depression, How The Brain Works expertly explains the processes of the brain in a way that we can all understand.
