About this Book

Critical Neuroscience brings together multi-disciplinary scholars from around the world to explore key social, historical and philosophical studies of neuroscience, and to analyze the socio-cultural implications of recent advances in the field.

  • Furthers the dialogue between neuroscience and the disciplines of the social sciences and humanities
  • Transcends traditional scepticism, introducing novel ideas about 'how to be critical' in and about science
