Brains Through Time examines how vertebrate nervous systems evolved in conjunction with other organ systems and the planet's ecology. Surveying an enormous range of information on genes and proteins, sensory and motor systems, central neural circuits, physiology, and animal behavior, the authors reconstruct the major changes that occurred as vertebrates emerged and then diversified. In the process, readers are transported back in time to key stages of vertebrate evolution, notably the origin of vertebrates, the evolution of paired fins and jaws, the transition to life on land, and the origins of warm-blooded mammals and birds.

About the Author
"If widely read and studied (and I hope it will be), the book could lead to researchers formulating new theories about the relationships between the brain's structure and its function by, as the authors advocate, forging closer links between neuroscience and evolutionary biology... don't think that
by reading the last chapter you'll get the gist and need not read the entire book. You do, cover to cover. Anything less and you're cheating yourself of a monumental pleasure and a rare opportunity to gain an invaluable education from what is, to my mind, a grand achievement." -- Susan Fitzpatrick,

"...what most impressed me was the depth and comprehensive coverage of the historical and current literature on the origins, paleoecology, morphology, endothermy, physiology, and comparative neural and functional anatomy of basal chordates to crown vertebrates. Given this range of detailed coverage
this volume deserves to be read through at least twice. This volume is highly recommended for undergraduate majors and graduate students in the biological sciences, as well as for evolutionary and cognitive neuroscientists." -- Paul Tibbetts, Quarterly Review of Biology

The kindle costs $73 bucks.
I even called Audible to ask for any help or compensation and after 20mins of the CSR saying the same thing: "There is no pdf and nothing we can do", I hung up.
