Item description for Cerebrum 2007: Emerging Ideas in Brain Science by Bruce S. McEwen...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cerebrum 2007: Emerging Ideas in Brain Science?

Refreshing Insights, New Ideas?  Jul 19, 2007
When I bought this item, I did expect more. What I got, however, was a nice-to-read collection of articles about interesting subjects. Nothing more, but also nothing less. A lovely read for an evening by the hearth, but nothing that would excite the avid seeker of the new and curious.
An excellent survey  Jul 8, 2007
Both science and health collections at the college level will benefit highly from The Dana Foundation's CEREBRUM: EMERGING IDEAS IN BRAIN SCIENCE, a compendium of brain research in a yearly anthology representing how prominent neuroscientists and others react to new discoveries about the brain. It's drawn from Cerebrum's Web edition and brings together experts who use lay language to discuss biology, ethics, science, and contemporary issues ranging from hidden memories to issues of understanding 'sin'. An excellent survey, CEREBRUM 2007 will find a place on the shelves of any serious college-level health or science collection.
