The Brain, An Illustrated History of Neuroscience by Tom Jackson, with Foldout Timeline


The thoughts and deeds of great thinkers always make great stories, and here we have one hundred all together. Each story relates a ponderable, a weighty problem that became a discovery that changed the way we see the world. Knowledge does not arrive fully formed, it requires many minds to puzzle over the evidence and, step by step, edge ever closer to the answers. This book tracks the history of neuroscience, which investigates how the brain controls the body, perceives the world, and creates our emotions, thoughts, and personalities.
