About this website
Is this website similar to the book?
This website is much more technical than the book.
Seven and a Half Lessons About the Brain is written in plain English for the general public. This website adds scientific details that were too lengthy or complex for the book.
I haven't read the book. Can I still use this website?
Certainly! You'll probably need the book, however, to understand the content fully. This site isn't complete in itself — I wrote it as a supplement to the book.
