The Little Book of Neuroscience Haiku

Paperback

Overview

Elephant on brain
You have a lot on your mind
Neurologist says.

The brain has fascinated philosophers and scientists for centuries. And why not? It is perhaps the most mysterious thing in the universe. Yet it’s probably safe to say that The Little Book of Neuroscience Haiku approaches the brain in a way that no one has before.

Neuroscientist Eric H. Chudler has created a whimsical yet educational book of haiku about the brain, each poem conforming to the strict definition of the Japanese verse form: three lines containing five syllables, seven syllables, and five syllables. Organized in three parts, one part discusses places (areas of the brain); one takes up things (such as brain scans); and one is about people (such as the researchers who have helped us learn about this elusive organ). Extensive notes complete the book, educating readers in an amusing, poetic, and at times moving fashion.

This book will be sure to delight science readers.
