How we think, feel, move, remember, imagine, and experience the outside world and our own bodies is the domain of neuroscience. For millennia, the workings of the brain and nerves could be approached only through superstition and conjecture. Then, in the 19th century, neuroscience began to cast light on this most complex of our bodily systems. This accessible, illustrated book traces the development of neuroscience, from ancient beliefs to the technologies of the present day.
Featuring photographs, diagrams and profiles of key figures, this book provides a wonderful grounding in the study of neuroscience through history.
