The Brain: A Very Short Introduction

The Brain: A Very Short Introduction - Michael O'Shea This was excellent. I have been working my way through the VSI brain books (see bookshelf) and this was the last one of the selection I have bought. Predominately this is about medicine and biology - not a subject I spend much enthusiasm on outside of " turning to page forty-seven and drawing little beards and moustaches on the sperms", so I was surprised to discover I actually found brain biology to be quite interesting.

The last chapter concentrates on potential future developments and of course the idea of human-computer hybrids. All very Sci Fi, but all the same tantalisingly close and possible.

It also helps that O'Shea has a sense of humour.
