Richard M. Restak, M.D., serves on the advisory councils of the National Brain Tumor Foundation; Office of Interdisciplinary Studies - The Smithsonian Institute; and the United States Congress-sponsored New Developments in Neuroscience Project.From Booklist:
Neurologist Restak describes clearly, logically, and effectively the major advances in knowledge of the brain, examining both the macro-and micromolecular levels of the structures and functions of the brain and in passing noting that as far as artificial intelligence goes, the Cray 2 computer has the processing power of only a small rodent. He describes the various instruments for diagnosing brain malfunctions and the research leading up to magnetoelectroencephalography (MEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), yet he is capable of sufficient historical perpective to observe that workers on the brain in 2095 will probably snicker at our views and approaches just as much as we now laugh at those of 1895. The brain, Restak believes, "consists of everchanging networks of relationships" and "is inherently indeterminate, unpredictable, and uncertain." William Beatty
