, its function, as well as a paragraph on brain plasticity and neuronal adaptation.
Their results fly in the face of traditional views that the anatomy of the brain
does not change in response to new stimuli.
Clever illustrations and clear text guide you through the anatomy of the brain
, describing what parts handle your complex movement, speech, hearing, heartbeat, breathing, and digestion, and how they manage to do all that, and more, at the same time.

, and functional systems.
After a section on the external anatomy of the brain
, they present whole-brain sections in three different sets of planes and relate them to three-dimensional reconstructions.
Topics covered include gross anatomy of the brain
, development, the synapse, neurochemistry, spinal cord, anatomy of the forebrain, motor systems, and higher functions.
McCann, who was formerly a British physical education teacher until he suffered a cerebellar stroke at the age of 37, outlines the symptoms of brain damage as they relate to stroke in his own experience, and explains the anatomy of the brain
