Mapping the mind

Author: Rita Carter
Publisher: London : Phoenix, 2010.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : Pbk. edView all editions and formats
Summary:
Brain scans reveal our thoughts, memories - even our moods - as clearly as an X-ray reveals our bones. We can watch a person's brain literally light up as it registers a joke, or glow dully when it recalls an unhappy memory. Mapping the Mind shows how these can be used to help explain aspects of our behaviour and how behavioural eccentricities can be traced to abnormalities in an individual brain.
