“I can’t think of a better place for anyone interested in the brain to read about the latest advances in research. For over 15 years, the Dana Foundation’s Cerebrum has been the most reliable source for learning about how neuroscientists are revolutionizing approaches to the greatest challenge of the 21st century–improving mental health through science.”
              —Larry W. Swanson, Ph.D., former president of the Society for Neuroscience

Cerebrum 2014: Emerging Ideas in Brain Science
offers timely and provocative ideas in neuroscience and book reviews from a cross-section of prominent neuroscientists. Among the essays in this book, last year’s Nobel Prize winners Edvard and May-Britt Moser discuss the causes and effects of spatial awareness; Walter R. Boot and Arthur Kramer examine the science behind the much-hyped cognitive training and brain games industry; and Miguel A.L. Nicolelis writes about the latest in brain-machine interfaces, including his work on the brain-controlled exoskeleton exhibited at the opening ceremony of the 2014 World Cup. In one of the five book reviews, Temple Grandin relates her own experience living with and studying autism to an autobiography by a nonverbal, 13-year-old boy with severe autism. 

Drawn from Cerebrum, the Dana Foundation’s highly regarded online journal, this sixth anthology will provide readers with a greater understanding of the human condition and how advances in medicine and science help us lead longer, healthier lives.
