Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 6-10. The focus of both of these books in the new Amazing Brain series is on what happens to the brain when it is affected by disease, injury, or drugs. For example, Addiction examines the ways in which the chemicals in various drugs, ranging from nicotine to heroin, affect the brain and how dependency develops. It makes a nice supplement to the many other sources on drug use that tend to deal more with the legal, moral, and social issues. Neurological Disorders focuses on such diseases and conditions as Alzheimer's, autism, meningitis, cerebral palsy, schizophrenia, and Parkinson's disease. Each short section describes how the disease may damage the brain and what treatments are used. The latest research is covered, with explanations as to why many of the conditions still leave scientists baffled. In both books, the information is condensed, straightforward, and readable, supplemented by excellent color diagrams. A glossary, bibliography, list of Web sites, and a short index are appended in both books. --Todd Morning"
