Editorial Reviews

Review

"Cerebrum does it again. The best minds in brain science tell us what's new about how we learn and what makes us intelligent; why teens take risks and older adults make bad decisions; new strategies for understanding and caring for people with brain disorders; and what frames our values, beliefs, and sense of spirituality. The book is as cutting-edge as it down-to-earth: true, in every way, to the legacy of William Safire."--Judy Illes, Ph.D., Canada Research Chair in Neuroethics

"This richly textured collection ranges from the influences of vitamin D and training in the arts to the maturational developments at puberty and the value of deep brain stimulation. As a dividend, there are balanced discussions of the controversies surrounding the meaning and validity of multiple intelligences, profiles of blood flow, and the psychiatrists' diagnostic manual. Don't miss this marvelous addition to the Dana Press series."-- Jerome Kagan, Ph.D., emeritus professor of psychology, Harvard University

"A fascinating survey of all the ways neuroscience is touching our lives--from potential new treatments for mental disorders to a deeper understanding of what makes life worth living."-- Carl Zimmer, author of "Soul Made Flesh: The Discovery of the Brain and How It Changed the World".
