Oné Pagán (baldscientist) I suggest "The First Brain: The Neuroscience of Planarians". This is a popular science book published by Oxford University Press.

***Note: I am the author of the book. As per Kristoffer's message, it is ok for me to nominate it as long as I disclose authorship... (:-D)...*** I am available to answer any questions. Just send me a message here or at orpagan@yahoo.com. Thanks!


The First Brain The Neuroscience of Planarians by Oné R. Pagán

John Wallace (jepwallace) | 1 comments I nominate: "The Best American Science and Nature Writing." The 2014 iteration edited by Deborah Blum. Topical yet internally various.

That's a great series that I never heard of before! Some of my favorite authors; all sorts of topics. Thank you. The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2014 is in Kindle, too.
