Neuroscientists once believed your brain was essentially locked down by adulthood. No new cells. No major changes. If you grew up depressed, angry, sad, aggressive, or nasty, youd be that way for life. And, as you grew older, thered be nowhere to go but down, as disease, age, or injury wiped out precious, irreplaceable brain cells. But over the past five, ten, twenty years, all thats changed. Using fMRI and PET scanning technology, neuroscientists can now look deep inside the human brain and theyve discovered that its amazingly flexible, resilient, and plastic. Pictures of the Mind: What the New Neuroscience Tells Us About Who We Are shows you what theyve discovered and what it means to all of us. Through author Miriam Boleyn-Fitzgeralds masterfully written narrative and use stunning imagery, youll watch human brains healing, growing, and adapting to challenges. Youll gain powerful new insights into the interplay between environment and genetics, begin understanding how people can influence their own intellectual abilities and emotional makeup, and understand the latest stunning discoveries about coma and locked-in syndrome.
