A surreal, informative journey through the human brain. A fun, novel way to learn about neuroscience. ( )
  Sullywriter | May 22, 2015 |
I'm really not sure how to describe this book because as it says near the end "...because nothing really happened if not inside [your brain]" The topic as a whole covers what happens inside the brain and the history of neuroscience. This is presented with a character who appears to be trapped inside a brain and is trying to find a way out, by the end he wants out of the brain and the discussion enters the realm of what can happen when one goes out of their brain/mind. Mind vs brain is explored and the end leaves us waxing philosophically. This is a deep subject and this amusing beginners intro shows the powerful format the graphic (or comic) presentation can be for educational purposes. As always from Nobrow, a high quality book as well. ( )

Neurocomic by Hana Ros and Matteo Farinella is a meta nonfiction about the inner workings of the brain. The book follows a man who is sucked into a human brain through a magical portal. His one and only goal is to get back to the beach and to the woman he was meeting.

Each part of the brain is drawn as a combination of the actual physical landscape and a metaphysical one. The metaphysical landscape builds on the way in which that part functions, the background for its name, and how it creates perception. These landscapes while not as gag oriented as the "Monster from the Id" episode of Phineas and Ferb, they are emotionally similar.

As the reader follows the adventure through the cerebral landscape, he or she will learn how the brain works and perhaps get a healthy appreciation for the use of metafiction to educate. ( )
