For Introductory Neuroscience courses at the undergraduate level; ideal as a supplementary text on neuroscience for students in such allied health fields as nursing, social work, psychology, and the rehabilitation disciplines, including physical, occupational, recreational and speech and language therapies.
Geared toward the non-medical reader, this fascinating, informative and witty book on neuroscience gives students the “big picture” behind the functions of the brain by integrating data from the realms of basic sciences, psychology, psychiatry, and neurology. Captivating in its presentation, it interjects discussions of complex concepts with humor, anecdotes, philosophical discussions and clinical case studies, and covers a significant amount of updated subject matter plus material rarely found in standard neuroanatomy and neurophysiology texts—such as brain plasticity, dreaming, consciousness, and aggression.
