Cerebrum 2015: Emerging Ideas in Brain Science offers timely ideas in neuroscience and book reviews from a cross-section of prominent neuroscientists. Among the essays in this book, Mahlon R. DeLong and Guy McKhann remember prominent neuroscientist Vernon B. Mountcastle; John P.A. Ioannidis examines the most comprehensive investigation ever done about the rate and predictors of reproducibility in social and cognitive sciences; and Patrick F. Sullivan writes about hope for the estimated 2.4 million Americans and 1 in 100 people worldwide affected by schizophrenia. Among the four book reviews by neuroscientists is David O. Kennedy relating his own research experience in discussing Neal Barnard’s best-selling book, Power Foods for the Brain.

Drawn from Cerebrum, the Dana Foundation’s highly regarded online journal, this seventh anthology will provide readers with a greater understanding of the human condition and how advances in medicine and science help us lead longer, healthier lives.
