From Our Editors

This entirely original and lavishly illustrated volume remains the only work devoted to the history, philosophy, and ethics of neuroscience, and is the book which "Bioscience" urged, "should be read by all students, faculty, and researchers in the field"

Editorial Reviews

`Jacobson has a broad grasp of the history and the philosophical implications of the field of neuroscience....does an important service by enquiring deeply into the origins and philosophical implications of the underlying ideas of neuroscience.'
