Brain, The: The Story of You

Renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman takes readers on a journey to understand the human brain. In "The Brain: The Story of You," the author investigates the various mysteries of the brain; he provides in-depth explanations, background knowledge, and the current scientific understanding of this complex organ. The book provides detailed examples of current neuroscience research, as well as thought-provoking studies that help us to understand how our own lives, choices, and beliefs affect our brains. In the senior science classroom, this book presents opportunities for critical thinking activities that relate to the questions that Eagleman poses, which encourage readers to reflect on their own actions, decisions, and convictions, as well as prompt students to recognize the meaning of consciousness and self-awareness in the mind.
