Dr Amanda Ellison has pulled off an amazing feat. This book explains the structure and function of our brain in such a way that neuroanatomy and neurophysiology become not only easy to understand but also fun to read about!' - Dr Erik Corthout, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium
'Amanda Ellison has written a delicious book. Savour it with a small spoon or gulp it straight from the source. Hard science made easier; serious stuff made fun; insane and beautiful cartoons. Love it.' -Professor Vincent Walsh, University College London, UK
