to the new Dana Press. After four years in hiatus, the Press returns with the
publication of two new books, You’ve Got Some Explaining to Do: Advice for
Neuroscientists Writing for Lay Readers and the Cerebrum Anthology 2013.
You’ve Got Some Explaining to Do, written by Jane Nevins, is a “must read” for
neuroscientists writing for the general public. The author, who served as the
first editor in chief of the Dana Press, brings more than 20 years of
experience in translating neuroscience to lay readers. This is an easy-to-follow reference book where you can learn about your reader and your voice,
common practices that sharpen your writing, and style. You’ll want to
keep it handy.
Cerebrum Anthology 2014 features perspectives into the causes and effects of spatial awareness, empathy, and circadian rhythm, along with timely articles and book reviews about cognitive training and brain games; socioeconomic adversity and brain development; and the living with autism. A stellar group of scientists and science writers, including Wise Young, Temple Grandin, Miguel A.L. Nicolelis, and Edvard and May-Britt Moser introduce us to these and other exciting topics.
Cerebrum Anthology 2013 is back in book form by popular demand. The Anthology brings together more than a dozen articles and book reviews from
the 2013 monthly Web edition. Cerebrum has had a loyal following since
its inception in 1998. It offers inquisitive readers an opportunity to read
about new and provocative ideas in neuroscience from a cross-section of
prominent neuroscientists. This year’s articles include a look at lewy
body dementia; the endocannabinoid system; ADHD; literacy; and fraud in
science. Bruce S.McEwen, Ph.D., The Rockefeller University, provides an
insightful overview in his Foreword.
Dana Press' former publications include sixteen written by Dana Alliance members and 13 e-books.
