4.0 out of 5 stars A clear look at how our brain works., 1 Sep 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Conversations With Neil's Brain: The Neural Nature Of Thought And Language: The Natural Nature of Thought and Language (Paperback)
Conversations with Neil's Brain By Calvin & Ojemann.
Reviewed by Dr. Charles Finlay
This is a trip through the brain, "Neil's Brain," Traveling through dendrites, axioms, and the web of the neuro-cortex into a better comprehension of what the brain does. Deep into the amygdala across to the hippocampus and onto the frontal lobe, all in a well mapped adventure to a better perception how our brains work. Neil, who's brain we examine, is a combination of treatments and discoveries about the brain rolled into one person. This is a well-written story about a "subject" with a dilemma that can be remedied by the use of brain surgery. As we travel the neuro-cortex of "Neil's Brain" the mystery of how the brain works is simplified into an understanding of the inner machinery of the living brain. If you are interested in the how and why the brain does what it does this is a good place to start. Conversations with Neil's Brain is an adventure and a "text" book. It is fun to read and overflows with information on the parts and process of the brain.

5.0 out of 5 stars brain surgery in action, 4 July 2011
This review is from: Conversations With Neil's Brain: The Neural Nature Of Thought And Language: The Natural Nature of Thought and Language (Paperback)
A great account of brain surgery on a patient with epilepsy. Monitors the painstaking process of brain 'mapping' performed on a conscious patient - like a renaissance explorer discovering a new world.
