The Brain

Tracer Bullet 90-10


This literature guide is intended primarily for the general reader who would like to catch a glimpse of recent research on the brain, the most complex of our bodily organs. The brain is literally the nerve center of the whole human organism. Approaches to the study of the brain are many-faceted involving molecular, cellular, organ, behavioral, pathological, and computational levels. New techniques and tools have allowed researchers to explore these many layers. The joint congressional resolution designating the 1990s as the Decade of the Brain is expected to add impetus to the advancement of research in the field.

This guide updates Brain and behavior (TB 79-3). Not meant to be a comprehensive bibliography, it is designed--as the name of the series implies--to put the reader "on target."
