This nonfiction book has many different stories and facts about the human brain. There are lots of anecdotes related to the author's cases as a neuro-scientist. For example he had examined patients who could see colors when looking at a certain number and went into a deep explanation on what makes us human and what it means to be human.
Fascinating detail and real stories make this a book a page-turner for teens. Even though it is heavily scientific, the writing is very accessible and understandable for a YA audience.
Ramachandran is a brilliant neuro-scientist who has written a marvelous book. I would definitely pick it up. I never thought a non-fiction book could be so interesting but this book just blew my mind.
This is an adult-oriented title that has a YA reading level.
This is all about human physiology.
