“I was pleased to hear that Dana Press was re-launching its Cerebrum Anthology, as I believe the sort of material that is published in the online journal  provides a unique and valuable resource of news, commentary, and review of neuroscience and related disciplines, for both the lay public and practicing neuroscientists."
    –Fred H. Gage, Ph.D., Adler Chair for Research on Age-Related Neurodegenerative Disease, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies 

“Much wisdom shines through this extraordinary collection of superbly constructed essays addressing the conundrum of how an immaterial mind emerges from a material brain.”
