Locked away in its casing of skull bone, the brain remains a tantalising mystery, despite astounding progress in brain research. This book begins by exploring the different regions of the brain and goes on to examine how certain functions are accommodated in the brain. It looks at how the basic building blocks of the brain, brain cells, communicate with each other and how such communication can be modified by drugs. It also describes how a brain is made from a single fertilzed egg and the fate of a brain is traced through life as readers see how it constantly changes as a result of experience to create the essence of a unique individual. Finally, the book explores what memory is, how it works and where it occurs in the brain.
