The Dana Guide to Brain Health is a fantastic book that contains a wealth of practical information about keeping your brain healthy, maintaining mental sharpness, and dealing with problems when they arise. Even better, the section on mind and brain disorders has now been made fully searchable and freely available on Dana’s website.
In fact, the book is incredibly comprehensive, and in addition to discussing health and illness, covers how the brain develops, functions normally, interacts with the body, and supports social interaction, emotion and cognition.
However, its coverage of disorders is excellent. Each one described, and is accompanied by a review of what’s currently known about the causes, diagnosis and treatment, so you know what to expect if you, a friend or relative need professional help.
This is the section has now been made freely available and is searchable by topic or keyword. A truly valuable addition to online mind and brain resources.
