How the Brain Works begins with an introduction to the brain's anatomy, showing you how to tell your motor cortex from your mirror neurons. From the mechanics to the psychological each topic weaves its way into an overall picture of just how complex and amazing this mass of gray matter that sits on top of us is.

There is a suggestion that the best way to retrieve information that has been just learned is to take a nap!From the senses to sleep, memories to making decisions, this book brings the wonder of brains and brain science to life.

We at Penguin Random House Australia acknowledge that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are the Traditional Custodians and the first storytellers of the lands on which we live and work. It’s all about how the octopus mind works, and what it’s like to have eight tentacles that are so packed with neurons that they virtually think for themselves. In this experiment, you will peer into your brainwaves to see what happens when the unexpected occurs and how the brain gets your attention.
