Written in a style similar to "Physics of Star Trek", "Star Trek on the Brain" explores the customs and behaviour of the characters from "Star Films" and episodes from the original "Star Trek" series, "The Next Generation", "Deep Space Nine" and "Voyager". The authors, psychologists and Trekkers, use "Star Trek" stories to describe the relationship between the mind and the brain, the complex connections between emotion and reason, the working of the senses and the changeability of the brain. Equipped with a glossary of the main characters and a list of episodes discussed, this book is for inveterate Trekkers and "Star Trek" novices alike.
