      How the Brain Lost Its Mind review – beyond hysteria In this study of psychiatry and neurology, Allan Ropper and BD Burrell ask: does mental illness reside in the brain .   Louise Barrett's book, "Beyond the Brain: How Body and Environment Shape Animal and Human Minds" is, refreshingly, not like this at all. Barrett is a psychologist who studies animal cognition and behaviour, and her book does a lot of things very, very well.

    Beyond the Brain acts as a potent reminder to young and well-seasoned neuroscientists alike, that the nervous system is encased in, and interacts with, other tissues to create an animal’s overall functional capabilities (i.e., the brain is embodied). Furthermore, an embodied system dynamically interacts with and modifies the environment in Author: Aaron L. Cecala.   You can read all about it in David E. Presti’s book  Mind Beyond Brain: Buddhism, Science, and the Paranormal. In fact, these legendary figures are so crucial to the purpose of this book, they are quoted even before the table of contents.

      When a chimpanzee stockpiles rocks as weapons or when a frog sends out mating calls, we might easily assume these animals know their own motivations--that they use the same psychological mechanisms that we do. But as Beyond the Brain indicates, this is a dangerous assumption because animals have different evolutionary trajectories, ecological niches, and physical attributes. Publisher: Floris Books, Good.
