    Portraits of the Mind PDF/EPUB É Portraits of PDF \ portraits kindle, mind epub, Portraits of ebok, Portraits of the Mind PDFYou do not have to be a scientist to enjoy this book I came to the book from an artist's perspective and recommend the book to anyone interested in intersections between Art and Science especially practicing artists in this field In saying that none of the images are stand alone artistic projectsThe images in the book are all developed for scientific as oposed to purely aesthetic purposesYou will not find any direct aesthetic or visual arts theory in the book though its essays and captions cover the history and developments of imaging the body brain specifically in such an informative interesting and accessible manner that any artist developing their own theories thoughts or work in the field will gain much from reading between the lines

    Portraits of the Mind PDF/EPUB É Portraits of PDF \ portraits kindle, mind epub, Portraits of ebok, Portraits of the Mind PDFAnother book I took out of the library for its illustrations from drawings of the brain as imagined by Galen in the 2nd century to the latest brain imaging technology Schoonover provides a visual feast The complexity of the brain is well documented; still though much progress has been made in the last 100 years in the mapping and understanding of how information travels in the brain the amount that remains to be discovered about brain function is layers deeper And though MRIs and microscopy can certainly be dazzling and often have an eerie resemblance to abstract art the drawings made by early scientists have a delicate stark and moving beauty that machines cannot replicate for meThe author is hopeful that these investigations and their discoveries will lead to new ways to treat malfunctions of the brain

    Portraits of the Mind PDF/EPUB É Portraits of PDF \ portraits kindle, mind epub, Portraits of ebok, Portraits of the Mind PDFThere's a lot of information packed into this book and it is accompanied by beautiful glossy images as the title and subtitle suggest this little gem of a book discusses all known forms of brain imaging or visualization of the brain from the past such as phrenology to the present fMRI EEG MRI etc I found it a JOY to read but then again I do like brains This would be a great supplement to anyone's education in neurology or psychology and is a great piece for a library
