Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Even as you read these words, a tiny portion of your brain is physically changing. New connections are being sprouted--a circuit that will create a jab of recognition if you encounter the words again.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 245-247) and index.
