Mapping the Mind

Rita Carter
Mapping the Mind

UK £6.59


"Mapping the Mind is an up-to-date, easy to read, gorgeously produced happy hybrid of textbook and coffee table tome....This book is a reminder of the enormous strides knowledge has made in the past three decades....Carter does a good job in describing how over the millions of years of hominid evolution the needs of survival have selected and shaped the features of the nervous system....Having a map is essential for any new journey. Thus Mapping the Mind is a welcome aid."–Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Washington Post"

Rita Carter recounts comprehensively, aided by an abundance of illustrations, what has been discovered about brain structure and function."–Scientific American
