    1. I really enjoyed Kathleen Taylor’s previous book Brainwashing, commenting that it was that rarest of species, a book that was both academic and readable, so I picked up her new title, The Brain Supremacy, with some enthusiasm. That enthusiasm proved to be partially justified.The good news is that there is a whole lot in here we ought to know about our current best knowledge of the brain and the various fascinating bits of technology that are used to study it. If you read any human science/brai [...]



    2. This books cover various topics related to neuroscience research. I really enjoyed the factual parts about how to conduct neuroscience research, brain scanning techniques, genetics and other methods related to neuroscience. Kathleen Taylor explained even difficult topics with such ease, that I got completely caught by the story and wanted to know more. Unfortunately, I got a bit disappointed, because while I got hungry for more information, she left the topic with a comment such as: 'I will not [...]
