"The Cerebrum anthology from Dana Press brings complex topics in neuroscience forward in understandable and human language. It's a terrific resource for anyone who cares for someone with a brain disorder or simply wants to better understand the complexities of the human brain."
--Husseini K. Manji, M.D., global head, neuroscience, Janssen Research & Development
"This Cerebrum anthology is superb. The subjects are timely, the authors are experts in each field and they have combined up-to-date science with medical and, in some cases, societal issues that are urgent to us all. As brain sciences advance on many fronts, Cerebrum communicates, in plain language, with other scientists and with the informed public." --Gerry Fischbach, M.D., chief scientist and fellow of the Simons Foundation
"One of the grand challenges of this next century is to understand the mind--across the lifespan and in health and disease. The articles in Cerebrum provide a window into the intricacies of brain function and behavior that are accessible to both scientific and lay audiences, making it a particularly useful scholarly resource." --Carol A. Barnes, Ph.D., Evelyn F. McKnight Chair for Learning and Memory in Aging; director, Evelyn F. McKnight Brain Institute, University of Arizona
"A marvelous collection of short essays on the brain--authoritative yet accessible to a general readership. Curl up with one or more of these pieces in a quiet moment and be amply rewarded (via your responsible cerebral centers!) with insights into a wide range of selected topics, spanning normal brain function, therapeutic prospects for brain diseases, and even flaws in the current research enterprise." --Dennis W. Choi, M.D., Ph.D., professor and chair of Neurology, SUNY Stony Brook
"Each article of about 10 pages focuses on ideas, more than just a recitation of facts. It is written at a level understandable by an undergraduate or any other nonprofessional, but it includes ample citations to published research. Thus, it is at a level intermediate between a typical journal article and a popular magazine." --PsycCRITIQUES
"So the book has few answers, but the state of the nation in these fields is set out there, as it will be in future additions, and always a good read to come up to date with current experts and where they are going with all of this." --Metapsychology
