    Do you know what your brain is made of? How does memory function? What is a neuron and how does it work? For that matter what's a comic? And in the words of Lewis Carroll's famous caterpillar: "Who are "you"?""Neurocomic" is a journey through the human brain: a place of neuron forests, memory caves, and castles of deception. Along the way, you'll encounter Boschean beasts, giant squid, guitar-playing sea slugs, and the great pioneers of neuroscience.
    Gleebooks Review:
    Welcome to your brain! It’s neuroscience for all in this entertaining comic-format adventure from two neuroscientists who demystify the extraordinary wonders of the human brain, ‘the most complex organic structure in the universe.’ The physical landscape and function of the brain are explored via a surreal voyage including neuron forests, guitar-playing sea slugs, expressive art and humour. Best of all, you needn’t be a scientist to understand it. From the stunning cover design incorporating axons and dendrites in decorative silver and gold, through the weird journey explaining what makes you ‘you’, this is utterly captivating!
