The study of the brain has boomed. One of the aspects that have become evident is that the brain is an organ in permanent construction. But how to build and rebuilding the brain? Can we direct our brain? What role plays society, education and hazard? This book addresses the latest advances in neuroscience and genetics, how it is created, how it is, how it works and how it is formed. If we become aware of these processes of building and rebuilding we can benefit immensely for our own good, that of our children and society.
