              How we think, feel, move, remember, imagine and experience the outside world and our own bodies is the domain of neuroscience. It is as old as humanity itself, yet has only been recognized as a discrete science in the past hundred years or so. This book traces its history, from A...ncient Egyptian and Greek beliefs about the mind, body and soul, through the findings of Leonardo, Vesalius, Descartes and others, to the brain-imaging technologies of the present day. The story of neuroscience weaves together narratives from philosophy, religion, psychology, physics, anatomy, chemistry, pharmacology and a host of other sciences. It is a story that is still unfolding today.
