Synopsis

The Brain and the Nervous System by Steve Parker

This book shows how the brain is the control centre for the body and at how the brain regulates hundreds of body parts and processes. It also looks at the network of nerves that carry messages to all parts of the body. The clear and lively text explains how this all works in fascinating and intricate detail. It also highlights the workings of the human body contrasted with the bodies of animals.There are case studies about, for example, the importance of sleep. There are also features on health and medicine, considering the effects of damage to the brain and nervous system. Amazing colour photographs combine with original colour artwork to show the different body parts in detail. This book provides links to recommended websites offering additional information.

Reviews

- All these titles are fascinating, insightful and informative. The series is an excellent resource for more able key stage 2 scientists, though intended for KS3. Each title develops its subject matter through straightforward text and clearly detailed illustrations and photographs. Together with a comprehensive contents, index and well chosen web links, this allows readers to engage with the text independently. - TES
