Preface > How This Book Is Organized

How This Book Is Organized

The book is divided into 10 chapters, organized by subject:

Chapter 1

  • The question is not just “How do we look inside the brain?” but “How do we talk about what’s there once we can see it?” There are a number of ways to get an idea about how your brain is structured (from measuring responses on the outside to taking pictures of the inside)—that’s half of this chapter. The other half speaks to the second question: we’ll take in some of the sights, check out the landmarks, and explore the geography of the brain.

Chapter 2

  • The visual system runs all the way from the way we move our eyes to how we reconstruct and see movement from raw images. Sight’s an important sense to us; it’s high bandwidth and works over long distances (unlike, say, touch), and that’s reflected in the size of this chapter.
