Editorial Reviews

Judy Illes
“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
