Biography

Marian C. Diamond, Ph.D., is a Professor of Anatomy at the University of California at Berkeley. She teaches general human anatomy and neutoanatomy and has conducted numerous lines of research into the effect of the environment and hormones on the forebrain. Dr. Diamond is perhaps best known for her investigations into structural changes in the cerebral cortex induced by an enriched environment and structural lateralization of the cortex as influenced by sex steroid hormones.

This textbook is incredible! The textbook is very comprehensive and contains a lot of information in the form of text explaining the slides you color. This textbook makes reading and learning about the brain easy for any age. Diamond is one of the most intelligent and Kind people I have ever encountered in my life. Anyway, overall a very well written textbook and presentation of a difficult subject with an interesting slant in terms of the coloring feature.
