The Rough Guide to the Brain

A student told me about Barry Gibb’s The Rough Guide to the Brain, and a quick search turned up this video preview of his book, as well as a BBC overview. Turns out Gibb has a range of interests beyond neuroscience, and you can read more about him at his site, digitalis media. And if the preview film interested you, here is Gibb’s blog entry about how the film managed to get made.

My question is – has anyone out there seen the book? If so, I am curious to know about the diagrams and illustrations. Are there any pictures of an actual brain, or are the illustrations all drawings? Thanks for any feedback anyone might have!

    Yes, Great book essentially aimed at a lay audience/students etc. I can highly recommend it.

    From memory, to answer your question, most of the illustrations are drawings.
