Author and homeschool mom, Dr. Lainna Callentine states:
"This book was a culmination of two reinforcing factors in my life:  my passion for the life sciences and my desire to see those same sciences presented in a technical but biblically accurate way.  Some may feel that the Bible has no bearing on science and only serves to dilute or confuse our understanding of it.  This book does not present science apart from the Bible but in light of it.  Others may feel that science, especially anatomy and biology, have much more to say about God and the bible than this book offers.  I believe indeed it does.  This would require a much broader investigation across multiple disciplines to fully develop."

Starting with a color-coded tri-level vocabulary and pronunciation list, we start our journey of the brain literally at the beginning.  1700 BC and one of the earliest mentions of brain injury!

In reading over this book, my kids and I were amazed at the real life account of Phineas Gage, the intricacies of the brain and nervous system, and the functions each area of the brain controls.

 
"History tells the story of the past.  Over time, we have learned a great many things about how the brain works.  Our knowledge of the inner workings of the brain continues to grow."

 

Also included:

 

Development of brain from birth to adulthood

 

The backbone and its function

 

Fight or flight response and other reflexes

 

The importance of sleep

 

Foods that help the brain function

 

Careers in Neuroscience and more!
