Editorial Reviews

"The essays offer amusing summaries of major breakthrough areas of psychology and neurobiology ... This volume is especially interesting for how psychologists feel about the future of what we can know now, a future very much operationally defined by the tools we invent. Recommended foracademic psychologists or as an introduction to major trends in research psychology." -- The Reader's Review
