"Anyone interested in the history of science in this century will find the 17 autobiographical essays collected in volume one of The History of Neuroscience in Autobiography rich in both facts and in the sociology of science... The book, edited by Larry Squire, a former president of the Society for Neuroscience, was conceived to inform and inspire students and working scientists alike... The essays represent a range of interests and activities as diverse as the field their authors helped build... Above all this book is a treasure of the history, ideas, innovations, and politics that coalesced to produce, and still color, current neuroscience. Anyone entering this field should find the volume valuable for this reason alone." --SCIENCEAbout the Author:
