Lerner approaches some of the basics of neuroscience by examining the way writers, artists, and even a chef deal with the mind. Looking at how the arts, as well as culinary creation, present ideas, the author examines recent discoveries in the science of the brain. Discussing how we see, smell, taste, and remember, he explains how the brain interprets the input it receives from different sources. It's a disappointment that James Boles's narration is too slow, his intonation is monotonous, and his pronunciation of foreign words is often wrong. Nonetheless, Lerner's approach of using the creative arts as a springboard to look at the brain keeps this production interesting. K.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
