Synopsis

A Day in the Life of the Brain by Ana Maria Rodriguez

Here is a creative new 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.
