Nyborg sets out to prove that classic ideas of the mind, learning, and memory must be re-examined through the lens of modern biology. Neuroscience and the biological and biomedical sciences have advanced far beyond the limits of 19th century neuroanatomy, and we now know that chemical neurotransmitters and circulating hormones act to alter electrical brain activity and structure. At the same time, heredity is now recognized to be not as omnipotent as in the "Nature/Nurture" debate of the last century. After examining these issues, Nyborg concludes by advancing a new synthesis--Physicology--the study of physico-chemical processes behind body, brain, behavior, and society.
