              Have you ever asked yourself why you can't remember anything from before the age of three, why we experience deja vu, or indeed how a bundle of cells in our heads can produce the remarkable phenomenon that is human consciousness? Drawing on the latest neuroscience research, this ...visual guide makes the hidden workings of the human brain simple to understand. How the Brain Works begins with an introduction to the brain's anatomy, showing you how to tell your motor cortex from your mirror neurons. From anatomy, it moves on to function, explaining how the brain works constantly and unnoticed to regulate processes such as heartbeat and breathing and how it collects information from the external world to produce the experiences of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. The chapters that follow cover memory and learning, consciousness and personality, and emotions and communication. There's also a guide to the brain's disorders, including physical problems, such as tumours and strokes, and psychological and functional disorders, ranging from autism to schizophrenia. Illustrated with bold graphics and step-by-step artworks, and peppered with bite-sized factoids and question-and-answer features, this is the perfect introduction to the fascinating world of the human brain.

              Travel through the ages, year by year, in this visual history for children told on a timeline that stretches from prehistoric times to the modern day. In this updated volume, the historic timeline reaches to the present day, documenting recent events, including the Syrian War and... the continuing exploration of space by the Juno and New Horizons probes. This unique book joins the dots of history together by putting historic events across the world on one timeline, from prehistoric people, key civilizations (Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Greeks, Romans, Aztecs, and Incas), world exploration, the Industrial Revolution, the American Civil War, the world wars, and walking on the Moon to the state of the world in the present day. Every timeline page is packed with pictures of original artefacts and paintings, to give a snapshot of a certain era. There are also special features that explain major events, such as the rise of the Roman Empire, or the fall of Communism. Child of the Time explores the lives of children in history, from the tough training of a young Spartan warrior to the lives of young pioneers on a wagon train heading west across America in the 20th century. A Moment in Time shows one large dramatic image to freeze-frame a particularly historic event, such as the first flight of the Wright Brothers. DK's History Year by Year shows the influences, patterns, and connections between the events that have shaped our world and reveal the history of the world as never before.
