Description

Your nervous system is you. All the thoughts, perceptions, moods, passions, and dreams that make you an active, sentient being are the work of this amazing network of cells. For many centuries, people knew this was true. But no one was sure how it happened. Now, thanks to the exciting new field of neuroscience, we can chart the workings of the brain and the rest of the nervous system in remarkable detail to explain how neurons, synapses, neurotransmitters, and other biological processes produce all the experiences of everyday life, in every stage of life. 

From the spectacular growth of the brain in infancy to the act of learning a skill, falling in love, getting a joke, revising an opinion, or even forgetting a name, something very intriguing is going on behind the scenes. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

enjoyed it

I definitely enjoyed this audio book. Who work in the medical field so a lot of the information was relevant to my job. I'm not sure how much someone who works outside of medicine or science would like it. I do have a few complaints though the 1st being that it's clearly adapted from some kind of video or in person lecture as the narrator at times referred to things that we obviously can't see just listening to the audio. The other complaint I have against it is that at times I think the Narration could be more concise and not elaborate quite so much on case examples. But over all I enjoyed it and would recommend it to others

Abundantly informative

As a stroke survivor, I’m significantly better off now that I’ve been able to absorb the abundance of knowledge contained within this book. The material is very well presented and never unnecessarily dense.

It really covers everything you always wanted to know and it really makes you think deeper about your everyday life.

A window into the brain

Most absorbing. It has given me an insight into how the brain functions. Symphonic and slick.

Something to be compulsory from cradle to grave

It is hard to imagine, impossible to foresee the huge universe that we are going to discover in our brain, the source of our mind, in a thousand years—therefore we must teach from the very beginning of our education what we already know. In so doing, we nourish a human being fully aware of his/her essence.

Great review of the current state of neuroscience

I enjoyed this title. It spans a range of important topics in neuroscience, like child development, emotions and cognition. A great feature is that the presenter discusses each topoc in terms of observation, neural circuits and Molecular biology.

Handel's religion well

When it came time to talk about religion you showed respect for everyone. I am a conservative Christian, meaning pro Trump and enjoyed every word. Thank you!

Hated school, loved this!

Maybe because I hate sitting and listening to lectures might be why this was so wonderful to walk, hike and listen. Speaker was awesome, subject matter fascinating!!!
