about this book

The early development of the human brain is a fascinating process that is covered with great precision in What’s Going On in There.

At birth, humans are capable of little beyond breathing and sucking. Yet, in the months to follow, the senses of sight, taste, touch, smell, and hearing are increasingly sharpened. In just a year’s time, a child has gained the cognitive function of attention and the beginnings of reasoning and language. What's Going On In There delves deep into these profound and drastic changes and reveals the mechanisms behind the fantastic and mind-boggling mystery of early neurological development.
