This engaging and engrossing history of the brain and the emergence of modern neuroscience chronicles the many significant people and events that gradually produced today's understanding of brain anatomy and physiology. The book traces this unfolding story from the first findings of gross neuroanatomy in the ancient world to the functional analysis of the electrophysiology of nerve impulses; from the early discoveries of the existence and operations of the central nervous system to, finally, the development in brain chemistry and pharmacology that have now brought us to neural networks and brain modeling. Along the way it offers numerous historic and rare plates, a rich tapestry of quotations from primary sources, and concise summaries of the pathbreaking research that shaped and determined modern neuroscience.

The latest research into both dyslexia and learning styles shows that adapting the way teachers teach to suit the individual ways in which students learn can maximise success for all students dyslexic and non-dyslexic. The practical teaching suggestions contained within this book are based firmly upon research findings and have proved successful in a range of mainstream and specialist settings. The first section of this research based but practical book provides an overview of the latest research in two key areas: dyslexia and the dyslexia experience; and the major learning styles and the role they play in successful learning. The second section provides: a range of ways to diagnose a learning style; techniques to help students absorb, process, and create responses to information across the curriculum; practical strategies to help teachers adapt material to suit the different styles encountered in every classroom, and activities to help students develop a more flexible approach to learning
