              What controls our sex lives? Our brains. Yet there is surprisingly little research into the ways our brains influence our sex drive. Research mainly takes place when something goes wrong through brain injury or disease, offering extraordinary insights into how the brain works. In... Sex in the Brain, clinical neuropsychologist Amee Baird takes readers on an entertaining and informative tour of the sexiest bits of the human brain. Spiced with real case studies, the book reveals pathologies no longer hidden in medical journals or the bedrooms of people whose sex lives are undergoing dramatic change, for better and worse. In the style of popular neurology guru Oliver Sacks, Baird captures the humanity and complexity of patients, even when their neurological challenges have rendered them permanently or temporarily unlikeable. Drawing from true stories, this revealing and sometimes heartbreaking book unfolds a better understanding of the links between brain function and our sexual selves.

              Dementia is the most significant health issue facing our ageing population. With no cure to date, there is an urgent need for the development of interventions that can alleviate symptoms of dementia and ensure optimal well-being for people with dementia and their caregivers. Ther...e is accumulating evidence that music is a highly effective, non-pharmacological treatment for various symptoms of dementia at all stages of disease progression. In its various forms, music (as a medium for formal therapy or an informal activity) engages widespread brain regions, and in doing so, can promote numerous benefits, including triggering memories, enhancing relationships, affirming a sense of self, facilitating communication, reducing agitation, and alleviating depression and anxiety. This book outlines the current research and understanding of the use of music for people with dementia, from internationally renowned experts in music therapy, music psychology, and clinical neuropsychology.
