In this groundbreaking graphic novel, the inner workings of the brain are presented through intriguing black-and-white illustrations and a narrative reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland.
A central male character encounters a "force" that pulls him into the "dense forest" of a cheerful-looking young woman’s brain. To escape, he maps the brain with the aid of eminent neuroscientists he encounters along the way. Neurons are turned into trees, the depths of memory into caves, and the mind’s self-deceptiveness into a haunted castle. A multitude of issues are investigated, ranging from perception and hallucinations to memory and consciousness, from the difference between the mind and the brain to how we become who we are. By cutting through scientific jargon and making a fascinating but complex topic accessible, this work serves as a welcoming gateway to further study.
