About this title

Synopsis:

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.

Review:

"Cerebrum 2007 is excellent, exciting, and important food for the brain."--Kay Redfield Jamison, author of An Unquiet Mind   (Kay Redfield Jamison 2006-09-08)

“These gracefully written essays fill the critical space between the technical reports of neuroscientists and psychologists and today''s headlines and enrich our understanding of the dramatic discoveries of the past few decades.”—Jerome Kagan, author of An Argument for Mind
 
 
 
(Jerome Kagan 2006-09-08)

“I eagerly await each new article in Cerebrum, a journal brimming with discoveries, fascinations, and food for thought.”—Diane Ackerman, author of A Natural History of the Senses
 
 
(Diane Ackerman 2007-02-13)

"For stimulating brain fodder, read this compendium of essays from the online journal Cerebrum. . . . The authors are all well-respected researchers in their fields, so you get innovative thinking but also varied style. . . . The book serves as an excellent shop window for the journal."--New Scientist   (Helen Phillips New Scientist 2007-06-09)

"Bruce McEwen lays the foundation for this thoughtful integration of ideas from experts in various neuroscientific disciplines addressing real-world programs. . . . There are interesting glimpses at the neurogbiologic basis of superstition, autism, post-traumatic stress syndrome, and a somewhat whimscial glance at whether animals have an esthetic sense. . . .  I found this volume to be unusually elegantly written its genre and worthwhile enough that I went online and asked to be included in the Dana Foundation''s distribution list for future such compiliations."--psycCRITIQUES (John Edward Ruark psycCRITIQUES 2007-10-31)
