Neuroscience Reading List
Hiya!!

I am seriously considering going back to school to study neuroscience. I don't think it's going to get me into a flashy brain lab job or secure awesome research grants...but, like my BA major, it's something that has been a recurring interest over the years. Combine that with some major life changes and considering going a different route...and going back to school for this seems like a good direction to go in.

That said...

I'm hoping that some of you out there could point me in the direction of some good books on neuroscience...the brain, mental illness, behaviour...really anything. I'll want to start sort of soft. Not dumbed down, but not super technical or dry. Not yet anyway.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions. Smile

(Should this be in the books section??)

I'm not sure, but these two are interesting books, at least it was for me.
"The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat" by Oliver Sacks

"An Anthropologist on Mars" by Oliver Sacks

Those books have a bunch of case studies on neurological subjects who have interesting lives.
