The Brain - book review
S. Allen is Research Scientist, Dornsite Cognitive Neuroscience Imaging
Center and the Brain and Creativity Institute at the University of
Southern California. Drawing on recent techniques of imaging as well as
insights and discoveries from paleoanthropology, microbiology, brain
anatomy, and molecular genetics Allen provides an "exploration of the
evolution of the human brain" as a biological organ, that is, " a
collection of genes, cells and tissues that grows, eats, and ages,
subject to the direct effects of natural selection and the phylogenetic
constraints of its ancestry."
