Dehaene (Experimental Cognitive Psychology/Collège de France; The Cognitive Neuroscience of Consciousness,etc.) begins by pointing out that the brain contains circuitry exquisitely attuned.

In this lively book, Stanislas Dehaene describes the pioneering work his lab and the labs of other cognitive neuroscientists worldwide have accomplished in defining, testing, and explaining the brain events behind a conscious state.

See, for instance, Mr. Marshall's account of the brain of a Bushwoman, in 'Philosophical Transactions,'p. ) But it would be an endless task to specify the numerous points of difference. About Reading in the Brain.

“Brings together the cognitive, the cultural, and the neurological in an elegant, compelling narrative. A revelatory work.”–Oliver Sacks, M.D.

The act of reading is so easily taken for granted that we forget what an astounding feat it is. Search more than leading titles in the biological, ecological, and environmental sciences. Surprisingly, one animal that holds the largest body size to brain ratios is the shrew, with a brain making up about 10% of its body mass.

From the book dustjacket: Locked in the silence and darkness of your skull, your brain fashions the rich narratives of your reality and your identity.

A brain is an organ that serves as the center of the nervous system in all vertebrate and most invertebrate animals. It is located in the head, usually close to the sensory organs for senses such as is the most complex organ in a vertebrate's body.

Some examples are Insectivora, the insect eaters; Edentata, the toothless anteaters; Rodentia, the rodents; Cetacea, the aquatic mammals including whales; Carnivora, carnivorous mammals including dogs, cats, and bears; and Primates, which includes humans.

Not too long ago, most of us thought that the brain we’re born with is static—that after a certain age, the neural circuitry cards we’re dealt are the only ones we can play long-term.

Fast-forward a decade or two, and we’re beginning to see the opposite: the brain is designed to adapt constantly. “Ectomy” (a game about the brain) Purpose of the game: To learn (or review) information about the lobes of the brain and what they do.

These lobes are: frontal, temporal, occipital, parietal, sensory cortex and motor cortex. Description of game: Each player tries to fill the brain.
