Sleep. Memory. Pleasure. Fear. Language. We experience these things every day, but how do our brains create them?

Written for readers with no neuroscience background, this friendly, engaging introduction to the human brain provides a crash course in how the brain works and explains research on the brain functions that affect our daily lives. Filled with numerous case studies to illustrate important concepts, the guide also dispels myths (e.g., why brain-training games don’t prevent dementia), explains common problems (e.g., how you might unknowingly be sabotaging your sleep), and sprinkles in fascinating tidbits (e.g., one popular psychiatric drug was created from German rocket fuel). The book also covers sadness, movement, vision, pain, and attention.
