Description
What happens during a heart attack? Can someone really die of fright? What is death, anyway? How does electroshock treatment affect the brain? What is consciousness? The answers to these questions, notes physiologist Frances Ashcroft, lie in the electrical signals traveling through our bodies, driving our thoughts, our movements, and even the beating of our hearts. Here she gives us a colorful history of how scientists discovered the role of electricity in the body, filled with extraordinary personalities, fierce debates, and brilliant experiments. She also introduces us to startling new developments in the field, shedding light on conditions from diabetes and allergies to cystic fibrosis, migraines, and male infertility.

"The human body is a symphony of complicated chemical and electrical signals. Let Ashcroft's book serve as your program guide."Booklist (starred review)
