What is “neuroscience”?
The popular magazine, Popular Science, takes on the challenge of explaining neuroscience and does a pretty good job!
– “history of neuroscience” – very brief and lacks important names (hello! Cajal!). But a decent overview.
– “present” – Obama’s brain initiative… wait… we went from the unnamed Cajal to the recent brain initiative? What about all the other achievements in our field?
– “future” – Myself and many others have our doubts about how effective the brain initiative will be, but this article suggests that it will be a game changer. It’s really not that much money.
The bottom line? All news is good news. And kudos to Popular Science for doing a sort of write up on neuroscience. But seriously, this is their answer to the question “What is neuroscience?”.
Neuroscience is much much more. Stay tuned.
