Download the Brain Facts book from the Society for Neuroscience. You can find the latest version of the book here: http://www.brainfacts.org/about-neuroscience/brain-facts-book/
Note there are multiple formats so you can download the one that is best for you (e.g. PDF, MOBI, etc..) – if you don’t know which to choose, download the PDF. There are also audio files if you are more of an auditory learner.
Once you have downloaded the files, read the Introduction and Chapter 1.
