The cover story of the February 2006 "Inner Vision" edition of Scientific American Mind is "Picture This", by Thomas Gueter. Gueter, a physician and writer, looks at how the mental images our brain conjures determine how we think. The other articles that delve into the mind and brain presented here include an examination of whether animals feel emotions, a look at the question of genetics and choice in homosexuality, how brain exercises can improve many mental disorders, new developments in Parkinson's research, the painful science of making choices, and the nerve cells that help your brain determine the faces of celebrities. Narrated with an even cadence that engages and makes for an enjoyable listen without detracting from its heady subject matter.
