The Walking Dead Compendium
"Tired of those ""new"" zombies like in 28 Days Later or the remake of Dawn of the Dead? Everyone knows that REAL zombies do not run; real zombies shamble. If you're a fan of real zombies, you're going to love The Walking Dead, if you aren't already familiar with it. It's a saga by Robert Kirkman that expands on the original zombie tale started by George Romero in 1968. Follow former police officer Rick Grimes and his crew as they explore a world infected with the Walking Dead sickness. But best of all - even more that zombies! - The Walking Dead weaves a tale of what happens to a society that's been torn apart and lost its laws, morals, and standards. More than just guts and gore, the saga of The Walking Dead is so compelling that you'll have a hard time putting it down."
The brain is a fearsomely complex information-processing environment--one that often eludes our ability to understand it. At any given time, the brain is collecting, filtering, and analyzing information and, in response, performing countless intricate processes, some of which are automatic, some voluntary, some conscious, and some unconscious. And, it's squishy. Mind Hacks is a collection of probes into the moment-by-moment works of the brain. Using cognitive neuroscience, these experiments, tricks, and tips related to vision, motor skills, attention (we at ThinkGeek have very good attention spa…ooh, a butterfly), cognition, subliminal perception, and more throw light on how the human brain works. Each hack examines specific operations of the brain. By seeing how the brain responds, we pick up clues about the architecture and design of the brain, learning a little bit more about how the brain is put together. Among the 100 hacks in this book, you'll find: Release Eye Fixations for Faster Reactions See Movement When All is Still Feel the Presence and Loss of Attention Detect Sounds on the Margins of Certainty Mold Your Body Schema Test Your Handedness See a Person in Moving Lights Make Events Understandable as Cause-and-Effect Boost Memory by Using Context Understand Detail and the Limits of Attention
