Welcome to Your Brain (2008) - 256 pages
Welcome to Your Brain at Amazon.com

We use our brains at every moment of our lives, and yet few of us have the first idea how they work. Much of what we think we know comes from folklore: that we only use 10 percent of our brains, or that drinking kills brain cells. These and other brain myths are wrong, as neuroscientists have proven. Even more surprising, what scientists have discovered about this complex organ is virtually unknown to the world outside their laboratories.

Two prominent neuroscientists now explain the research behind issues you've seen in headlines and debated at cocktail parties. Does listening to Mozart really make your baby smarter? Are men better at math than women? Does cramming help you prepare for tests? Every chapter of this fascinating book is filled with fun facts that will surprise and entertain you. Do you know why mice don't like Diet Coke? Or that fewer than 5 percent of mammals are monogamous?

Finally, Welcome to Your Brain is also a user's guide for brain owners. These pages will tell you how to cope with jet lag, when to worry about a stroke, and how to keep your brain healthy as you get older. Sandra Aamodt and Sam Wang show you not only how your brain works, but how you can make it work better.

With witty, accessible prose, brilliant illustrations, and sidebars full of practical tips and amusing brain trivia, Welcome to Your Brain is the perfect handbook for any thinking person.
