These online bookshops told us they have this item: Tags What are tags? It's the sort of book I'll have to go back to time and again as it brings together a lot of ideas from disparate disciplines and thinking. Among many questions and hypotheses you've thrown up, I find the idea of a research project to compare DNA makeup in individuals over time is particularly fascinating.
Biological Systems of the Brain : Unlocking the Secrets of Consciousness
Absolutely delighted to get a copy of this for my Granddaughter. Not gonna lie she is slightly under the recommended age range, but she did have a good chew of the corners. The story itself is lovely. Reminded me of the Enid Blyton stuff of my own childhood, but with a nicer, more modern message about friendship.
My girl loved being read to, and the story was engaging enough to keep any adults entertained during the reading. We meet a lovely dungaree wearing cat named Harvey and his motley crew of friends as they travel on the bus to the moon. They head to a circus where Harvey rescues a new friend, but also loses some of the others and Harvey and Gretel have to do all that they can to find Chester and Nelly and still get back to the bus before it leaves for home. They do cut it fine, and I imagine a lot of children getting over-excited as they push things to the wire.
I can't wait til my lovely girl is old enough to read this for herself, but until then, it is a book that will happily go onto the bedtime reading rotation that she has, and will keep her entertained for years to come.

And the illustrations are lovely, Emily the illustrator did a marvellous job of bringing them all to life. My daughter loved the story. She really enjoyed the part about the Sweet shop and as soon as we were finished wanted to hear it again, so we've read it twice in a row.
She also took it to school to show her friends. The idea of describing the brain from a systems analysis perspective is brilliant - it makes clear many things that are obscure when described in traditional biological terms.
In the part of the book on the formation of memory, I do not necessarily go along with all the conclusions, but I can see that the theory would fill gaps. The role of glial cells in modulating neuronal activity is an exciting new field of discovery and may well throw up something akin to the book's suggestion of glial bridges. Epigenetics is a [further] area where very little is known.
The authors' speculations show a degree of insight, which is often lacking in text books on the subject, and is very interesting. As, indeed, are the thoughts on Looking at the brain as a system is a wonderfully revealing device which makes clear many aspects of brain function that otherwise may seem quite mysterious.
