    Littlefield and Jenell M. Why do books stick with us? Anyone interested in neuroscientific research for any purpose should read this edited collection, but especially so if one has any kind of scholarly interest in neuroscience. On the other hand, there are several authors in this volume whose work hones in on the many dangers of the integration of multiple perspectives. More than just a study about scientific achievement and genius, Kanigel is deeply interested in the human beings who do science, and how clusters of talented scientists making important discoveries emerge.

    In contrast to some commentaries on neuroscience that either uncritically accept its salience to other spheres of research or conversely fully reject its insights, the contributions to this book cast a The neuroscientific turn book sober eye over neuroscientific developments and their rapprochements in the humanities and social sciences. In the aftermath of the Decade of the Brain, neuroscience has become one of the hottest topics of studynot only for scientists but also, increasingly, for scholars from the humanities and social sciences. Johnson, editors Description The Neuroscientific Turn brings together 19 scholars from a variety of fields to reflect on the promises of and challenges facing emergent "neurodisciplines" such as neuroethics, neuroeconomics, and neurohistory. In the aftermath of the Decade of the Brain, neuroscience has become one of the hottest topics of study—-not only for scientists but also, increasingly, for scholars from the humanities and social sciences. Look Inside.

    While the popular press has simultaneously lauded and loathed the coming "neurorevolution," the academy has yet to voice any collective speculations about whether there is any coherence to this neuroscientific turn; what this turn will and should produce; and what implications it has for inter- or The neuroscientific turn book inquiry. The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science — Norman Doidge — Neuroscience The Brain That Changes Itself is an exploration of neuroplasticity, the recently discovered concept that our brain is malleable and constantly remodeling itself through our life—and that it can therefore adaptive to new situations, sometimes in surprising ways.

The resulting collection will appeal to neuroscientists curious about their colleagues' interest in their work; scholars and students both in established neurodisciplines and in disciplines such as sociology or English wondering about how to apply neuroscience findings to their home disciplines; and to science, technology, and society scholars and students interested in the roles of interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity in the construction of knowledge.

On Intelligence — Jeff Hawkins — Hawkins is one of the people responsible for the PDA, the precursor to smart phones, and he was similarly prescient in neuroscience, unfortunately academic departments at the time were not.

A Psychiatrist and Psychoanalyst, some of Doidges stories are accounts of patients making dramatic recoveries through neuroplasticity-inspired interventions. Oliver Sacks explores this question by looking at how changes to our or brain can result in bizarrely altered states of consciousness.

It is therefore a useful read for anyone considering interdisciplinary research, as well as for a more general audience of scholars intrigued by how disciplines are picked up and put to work by colleagues from quite different academic realms.

Littlefield and Jenell M. After taking Psychology for the rumored easy A, doing horribly, and then studying like crazy to bring up my grade, I discovered I was genuinely interested in psychology.
