Overview

This book is the third volume of autobiographical essays by distinguished senior neuroscientists. As neuroscience is a young discipline, the contributors to this volume are truly pioneers of scientific research on the brain and spinal cord. It is fascinating to hear their stories first-hand and to learn what has inspired and shaped the careers of the best neuroscientist of our time.

In this volume, 13 outstanding neuroscientists tell the stories of their scientific work. Within their writings, they discuss major events that shaped their discoveries and their influences, as well as people that inspired them and help shape their careers as neuroscientists. This collection of fascinating essays should inform and inspire students and working scientist alike. The general reader may also find the book absorbing, as they are essentially human stories about commitment and the pursuit of knowledge.
