Brain: The Complete Mind: How It Develops, How It Works, and How To Keep It Sharp by Michael S. Sweeney

In nine thoroughly researched chapters, Brain demonstrates the complex operations that it takes to make us fully human, from how the nervous system develops in the womb, to how emotions register in the brain, to the inevitable changes that occur with time and age. Lively, accessible text and hundreds of full-color photographs and illustrations appear alongside a wealth of special features such as, fact boxes, sidebars and practical tips and strategies for keeping your brain sharp. National Geographic produced and published this beautiful book, and it is the ultimate reference book for the seat of human consciousness.
