According to scientists, the human brain is the most complex structure in the universe. The new Brain and Mind is a fascinating look at how psychologists have studied its structure and function extensively, showing the compelling interplay between various parts of the brain and how they interact to produce our behaviors that emerge so normally and naturally. Through innovative, computer-based techniques, including an understanding of differences in brain functioning associated with both normal and abnormal thought and behavior, this full-color resource examines the ways research on the brain has led to extensive knowledge of how the brain functions.
