Brains Explained: How Your Brain Works, and Why it Works that Way

// STEM Learning about the Human Brain // Fun and Educational Facts about Human Body

Written By: Alie Caldwell, Micah Caldwell
Neuroscientist Alie Caldwell and clinical therapist Micah Caldwell created the YouTube channel Neuro Transmissions in 2015 with a singular mission in mind: explain the brain . . . simply! Whether it's delving into the neuroscience of street drugs or illustrating the psychology of cat behavior, Alie and Micah break down that impossibly complex organ living in your head without all the jargon. Their first book will expose the fascinating, often shocking stories about the brain and have you ditching the dusty textbooks.

This book scrutinizes the sometimes-dubious history of brain science from a modern perspective, wanders through explanations about how your senses trick you into believing some wild things, speculates about whether we'll be able to upload our consciousness to the Matrix, and so much more.

With two exceptional authors and an unbelievable number of intriguing and educational brain facts, Brains Explained is sure to be one of the most cherished popular science titles on your bookshelf for years to come.
