More than 1,000 entries cover all aspects of the brain, from anatomy, function, and development to diseases and disorders. With a large focus on memory, one of the mind’s most important and mysterious functions, this extensive volume discusses the functions and elements of memory, how it works, how it breaks down, and various diseases and disorders that affect it.
