Product description

Review

"The substance of the book, from start to finish, is notable especially for the instructively informative nature of the discourse presented expertly by Wenk, relating, substantively, to the brain, drugs, and foods. [O]verall, the book as composed, substantively and stylistically, is certainly tailored well to fit a universal reading audience. The text's body is adorned, intellectually, with some didactically very well designed 'Figures'. Wenk's intellectually impressive contribution to this burgeoning field, as embodied in this book, should be quite edifying to lay readers, and professionally very rewarding, as well, to medical scientists and clinicians." --Leo Uzych, Metapsychology Online Reviews Praise for the First Edition: "An absolutely fascinating read (or book) peppered with gems of surprising information on how certain foods, plants, nicotine and drugs (legal and illegal) alter the very essence of your brain cells' functioning and thus your behavior and mood. Don't deprive yourself of the pleasure of reading it." --Jean Carper, author of "Your Miracle Brain" and "100 Simple Things You Can Do To Prevent Alzheimer's and Age-Related Memory Loss" Praise for the First Edition: "Your Brain on Food provides ample and important food for thought in a delightfully written reader-friendly style. Kernels of history sprinkled throughout the book provide both interest and insight into how our appetites influence our brains and, and thus, our thoughts and actions. Gary Wenk has provided a compelling and much-needed antidote to commonly available misinformation about nutrients and brain function. Readers will be richly informed--as well as entertained." --James L. McGaugh, Research Professor of Neurobiology and Behavior, University of California, Irvine Praise for the First Edition: "All of us are impacted by a bewildering array of psychoactive drugs and foods, some being agents of abuse and others being of importance in treating disease. Gary Wenk, a nationally eminent neuroscientist, provides a gripping account of the neurotransmitters that enable neurons in the brain to talk to each other and shows how drugs as well as substances derived from foods exert their psychoactive influences. Wenk has a gift for making complex concepts crystal clear and relating seemingly arcane science in a fascinating, lucid fashion--as gripping as a detective story. This is an invaluable book for anyone who is curious about the brain and its functions." --Solomon H. Snyder, M.D., Distinguished Service Professor of Neuroscience, Pharmacology and Psychiatry, Johns Hopkins University Praise for the First Edition: "Intriguing" --Scientific American MIND --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
