Product Overview

New advances are being made in brain science today that will directly affect each of our lives, from the courtroom to the classroom to the living room. "Cerebrum" has long been the leading journal in distilling these developments in neuroscience for the general reader, and its articles by leading scientists and scholars are cited in such prominent publications as the "Wall Street Journal," "Boston Globe," and "Washington Post," Collected here are over a dozen articles and book reviews from the journal’ s online edition about the latest developments in brain science.
                      The featured articles offer thought-provoking analyses of the human brain and its untapped possibilities, touching on topics as diverse as the neurological basis for a belief in the supernatural, the use of drugs to alter traumatic memories, and the biological nature of ethical behavior. Top scientists and scholars— including neurologist Dr. Kathleen Foley, of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; Henry T. Greely, bioethicist and Stanford University professor of law; and Dr. Judith L. Rapoport, chief of the child psychiatry branch at the National Institute of Mental Health— clearly and concisely explain these and many other exciting developments on the horizon. An engaging and wholly readable compendium, "Cerebrum 2007" is essential for all those interested in the cutting edge of brain research and what it holds for the future of humanity.
