This short conversation, enabled by you reading these words, causes a good deal of your active memory pattern to reflect mine when these words were written. This amazing level of communication, the ability to allow another to drive a large portion of your declarative memory, is called language. Language may well be the human capability that drove the need for more intelligence, rather than intelligence enabling language. The conversation contained within the pages of this book is intended to impart what I have learned about the brain to your brain. The machinery of the human brain is described in order to understand what functions it provides. What brains are made of, neurons, what neurons build, neural components, and how those components interconnect to facilitate human intelligence are covered in detail. This information leads to an examination of how our brain works. Explanations of how you store the patterns of experience, memory, how you build the associations and abstractions that facilitate intelligence, learning, and how your brain controls your behavior are offered. My assumption is that the amount of neural patterns you have stored relating to neurons, neural components, and neural processes is very limited. The book begins with explanations and proceeds to analysis, all presented in a straightforward, accessible, comprehensive manner.Learning to play the piano is a prime example of the human cerebellum at work.
