Part of the Investigating Body Systems series (4 titles), this introduction to the nervous system covers a lot of ground. In five chapters, the book lays out what the central and peripheral nervous system are, the basics of how they work, a brief history of neuroscience, diseases or conditions that inhibit the nervous system, tips for staying healthy, and a look at where science is heading in this area of study. A decent rundown of the nervous system, best used in conjunction with more detailed resources.
