Here is a creative introduction to the central and peripheral nervous systems and how they work together to keep the body functioning. A Day in the Life of the Brain will draw readers in as it follows a fictional character and the activities of his brain through his day, from waking up, to going to class, to soccer practice, to bedtime. This lively explanation of neuroscience also dispels a number of brain myths, such as the misconception that brain damage is always permanent, and provides fun activities to test and exercise readers' brains.



Reviews and Awards

"…stands on its own as a highly readable monograph on a subject that can be difficult for students…The illustrations are good, the sidebars are interesting, and there are some extension activities included. This is an excellent choice for reading or information gathering…Recommended.”
