Understanding Your Brain by Rebecca Treays
A Usborne Science for Beginners book, Understanding Your Brain is filled with cartoony illustrations and LOTS of information. A great take on neurology, psychology, craniology and psychiatry. Very, very cool.

  Blind Spot
From the site: "Most people (even many who work on the brain) assume that what you see is pretty much what your eye sees and reports to your brain. In fact, your brain adds very substantially to the report it gets from your eye, so that a lot of what you see is actually "made up" by the brain." Try these simple experiments. You'll be surprised!
