it was amazing

Amazing look into the human brain's functions. It is very important to understand that advanced technology necessary in the field of daily-progressing neuroscience. In this regard, Mapping the Mind is very an informative and provocative book. On the other hand this book is drawning attention to the social backgrounds of various old techniques(like a frontal leucotomy-lobotomy) in the past. Looking back, the approach to brain surgery in the mid-twentieth century seems unpleasant. But at the twenty-first century brain surgery is much more advanced.
