Interesting Read September 8, 2010
I was memorized by the author's explanation of how the body works with the senses. This textbook was required for my psychology class. The process of bringing information from my fingertips or any sense to the brain is phenomenal. I was especially interested in how the brain organizes and translates this information into something meaningful.
