Cerebrum 2010: Emerging Ideas in Brain Science offers readers the newest ideas and opinions arising from cutting-edge brain research.

In his foreword, pediatric neurosurgeon Benjamin S. Carson Sr., M.D., discusses the dramatic progress of neuroscience over the course of his career. We see this continuing scientific evolution through the essays in Cerebrum 2010. Experts such as Scott T. Grafton, M.D., Douglas A. Gentile, Ph.D., David J. Kupfer, M.D., and Paul R. McHugh, M.D., delve into topics including the ways dance can inform educational practice, the different effects of video games on the brain, and the challenges in revising the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.  Drawn from Cerebrum, one of the leading e-magazines, this fourth annual anthology brings together the voices of experts in neuroscience, psychiatry, education policy, and basic science to offer commentary on the impact of today’s research.
