Drew, Liam, (author.).

Summary

Summary:

"Packed with colorful illustrations and fascinating facts, this fun book begins by looking at the anatomy of the human brain, its different regions, and what they do. It also covers the rest of the nervous system and how nerve cells communicate. The wealth of other topics includes the senses, how we learn, memories, thinking, emotions, evolution and development of the brain, how our brain sets us apart from other animals, dreaming, and things scientists still don't fully understand--such as consciousness"--Provided by publisher.
