Présentation de l'éditeur

Welcome to Neurocomic, a visually captivating adventure through the brain. Neurocomic is populated by quirky creatures, bizarre landscapes and famous neuroscientists. Our nameless protagonist evades vindictive colossal squid, negotiates mysterious trap doors, battles Boschean narcotic demons and navigates forests of neurons to take you on an enrapturing journey through the most complex organic structure in the universe. Neurocomic makes a baffling, mysterious subject approachable for the layman but it's also a wonnderful object in it's own right, one that cries out to be picked up and read. Produced in association with the Wellcome Trust, the largest medical charity in the world, Neurocomic is a wonderful introduction to the complexities of the brain.

HASH(0x9f607948) étoiles sur 5 Absolutely brilliant! 12 avril 2014
Par Carrie - Publié sur
Format: Relié
As a scientist I find this book a revelation! The reason? The brain is complicated enough for a scientist, so to present it in such an understandable and fun way is really something. Marvelous and highly recommended to scientists, schoolchildren and anybody else interested in how the most fascinating human organ works!

HASH(0x9f7e8768) étoiles sur 5 Intriguing book! 3 mai 2014

I'm a college student and I adore this book. I wasn't really sure which age/grade level this book was geared towards, but I liked it nonetheless. The creators have quite the imagination. It captured how the neuron works and involved scientists from years past that contributed to it's function. This book even included some things that I am learning in my biochemistry class right now which I thought was cool.

HASH(0x9fae7cfc) étoiles sur 5 Illuminated Brain 17 octobre 2014
Par Joy Corcoran - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I love books that illuminate the brain and help me understand how brain and mind function. I’ve recently fallen in love with the book Neurocomic by Dr. Hana Ros and Matteo Farinella, beautifully published by Nobrow this year. It combines all the best elements of science, art, humor, story and information.

The book opens with a man who starts to flirt with a woman then finds himself sucked into her brain. His quest is to get back out so he can continue to pursue her. He has no idea where he is and wanders through a neuron forest until he runs into Santiago Roman y Cajal, a “Spanish neuroscientist and Nobel Laureate (1852-1934)…considered as the father of neuroscience, although he always had a great passion for drawing.”

Thus begins our hero’s journey through neuron forests, memory caves, and castles of deception. Along the way, he runs into pioneers of neuroscience who seem to delight into sending him into even more mysterious places. It amused me to think of neuroscientists spending eternity studying inside a living brain. Is that heaven for them? The scientists are only the beginning of the zaniness. There’s a giant squid seeking revenge for experiments on its giant axons. There’s an aplysia snail playing banjo. We run into Pavlov and his dog.

It’s an altogether engrossing and entertaining way to learn about the brain. We often see science as stuffy and serious, but this book injects so much playfulness and humor into neuroscience, that it’s an irresistible way to learn. The drawings are lively and expressive. I love the playful way brain functions are characterized.

Dr. Hana Ros is neuroscientist with a PhD from Oxford University. Matteo Farinella is an illustrator specializing in graphic journalism and scientific illustration. Farinella received a PhD in neuroscience from the University College in London.

The story format helps illuminate both what is known and how much is still not known. It’s a mysterious world, the world of the brain, and Neurocomic celebrates that mystery as much as the science. Ros states in a video about the book that it’s difficult to explain what’s going on in the brain without the use of metaphors. That our brains can make metaphors is miraculous to me, and that we can understand so much more about everything in terms of story and metaphor is, I think, the most comforting thing about this book.

The other comforting thing is the book itself. Nobrow has done a stellar job in publishing it. It’s a delight to hold and behold. I worry that the era of beautiful books has come to an end with the ebooks, but publishers like Nobrow are putting those fears to rest.

Nobrow started in the winter of 2008 in the UK, with the aim to provide an independent platform for graphic art, Illustration and art. It’s become a leading proponent of quality in book design and a standard bearer for original creative content in print publishing.

Neurocomic’s cover and spine are embossed with gold and silver ink. It has beautiful endpapers. One of the problems with graphic novels is picture size. Often the panels are so small, you lose impact. Neurocomic has big panels and whole pages devoted to one frame.

It’s a charming way of learning a complex subject, and invites re-reading.

HASH(0x9f790c24) étoiles sur 5 A great intro into the brain! 11 juin 2014
Par Adam B. Hallihan - Publié sur
Format: Relié
If you have an interest in learning about the brain through the medium of a graphic novel, then this book will satisfy that niche. The book covers scientists involved in neuroscience, the chemistry and structure of the brain, and even some philosophical questions (mind v. brain). All of these topics are covered in a manner that would engage the young and old due to the illustrations. The best thing this book does, in my opinion, is use the graphics as another vehicle to teach the content. The graphics could stand alone as "cool", but the story and graphics tie in so well together that the reader can learn from both. I highly recommend it!

HASH(0x9f790c18) étoiles sur 5 Neurocomic is a creative and imaginatively written book. Where it is limited in content it abounds in creativity. 7 janvier 2015
Par capressley - Publié sur

I found Neurocomic a really creative book to provide a reader with a basic introduction to aspects of the workings of the brain. In my opinion, the book spends too much time reflecting on neuroscientists where it could have provided more content about the various structures of the brain - which I felt the book only barely accomplished. I was disappointed that the authors did not use this creative medium to explain the anatomy and function of more parts of the brain. The creative genius of the book cannot be overstated - the imaginative forces that developed this book are remarkable. It is a fun and artfully drawn book that would be enjoyable for readers to explore.
