The amazing brain by Robert E Ornstein( Book )

"The brain is like an old ramshackle house that has been added on to over the years in a rather disorganized fashion. In this book, we look at the architecture of that house, first by taking a tour through the various "rooms" and then by going deeper and deeper into the material with which those rooms are constructed. Later we consider some of the mysteries of the brain and human experience. The drawings and diagrams appearing throughout will help you to visualize some of the more complex aspects of the amazing organ that is the human brain."--[from preface]

The right mind : making sense of the hemispheres by Robert E Ornstein( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and Turkish and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A psychologist and writer who began the conversation about the differing roles of the right and left hemispheres in his best-selling The Psychology of Consciousness twenty-five years ago, Ornstein has in his books and lectures provided a running commentary on the significance of what we are learning about the brain. Now the time has come for a new synthesis: The Right Mind. It is short but rich in its detail, light-hearted but profound in its conclusions. A central argument of The Right Mind is that while facts (what we might think of as text) are stored and processed in the left hemisphere, the right mind sets the context and makes sense of it all. And so it is with this book. Ornstein has incorporated the important facts and then set the whole thing in context
