"The brain is a gland," states neurosurgeon Bergland in this popular review of brain research, past and present. He argues that if we are to understand the mind/brain, neuroscientists must accept this radical view of the brain as an endocrine organ "producing . . . and bathed in hormones." But the book is more than just a plea for a new approach. It is an entertaining but scholarly review of brain science from its ancient beginnings to the present, pointing out how incorrect approachesnerves are hollow tubes, four humors control behavior, brain activity is all electrical, etc.have persistently obstructed progress and understanding. An outspoken, authoritative statement, highly recommended to general science collections, that professionals will also find useful. George Adelman, formerly with Neurosciences Research Programs, MIT
