The purpose of this book is to capture the imagination of students, health professionals, and lay people alike as they learn basic human neuroanatomy. By introducing the structure of the human brain, it renders the fascinating world of brain-and-psychology research totally accessible to interested novices. One consequence of the current explosion of knowledge about the human brain is that coverage of the brain in many introductory texts is often inadequate and, as a result, students have difficulty delving into relevant areas of modern brain research in their senior years. Accordingly, this book can be used effectively as a supplemental text in first and second-year courses to flesh out coverage of human brain anatomy, or it can be used in more senior courses to provide students with the systematic introduction to human neuroanatomy that was lacking in previous courses.

Acknowledging the difficulty many readers have when first attempting to learn about the brain's psychological functions, the authors of A Colorful Introduction to the Human Brain have created a book that makes the fascinating world of brain psychology research accessible to readers with little or no background in neuroscience. Readers learn the material in several steps. First they read through the introduction and definitions on the left page; then they color the illustration on the facing page; and finally they use the special cover flap to conceal the illustration labels while checking their knowledge, until they feel they have completely learned the material. Review exercises at the end of each chapter provide an opportunity for self-assessment, with answers provided at the end of the book.About the Author:
