Over het boek
The Brain: A Beautiful Journey is an unusual exploration of the mind, designed to convey scientific knowledge in a simple way for amateurs as well as serious students of human brain and behavior. Beginning with the history of Earth and evolution, The Brain: A Beautiful Journey examines the crucial discoveries that help us understand brain function. For instance, how do the advances in physical sciences and complexity facilitate psychiatric progress? Specific brain regions and their functions are discussed with particulate emphasis on the three brain centers that define human behavior: prefrontal cortex (human), sub cortex (monkey) and limbic brain (rabbit). The final chapters touch on some of the common psychiatric disorders and their origins, with an overview of the transformation of brain function from normalcy to dysfunction. Included are vibrant paintings, brain drawings and poetry that compliment the discussions with an artistic touch, blessed by the power of simplicity. May you find the journey fascinating, insightful and enjoyable.
