Book Description:

Fourth volume in a series of autobiographies by notable people in the field of neuroscience.

From the Back Cover:

This is the inaugural volume of autobiographical chapters by distinguished senior neuroscientists and the first collection of neuroscience writing that is primarily autobiographical. Neuroscience is a young discipline, and the contributors to this volume are truly pioneers of scientific research on the brain and spinal cord. Here, they provide recollections about their lives in science.
Though the particular focus of neuroscientific study can vary widely, from molecules to mind, neuroscience describes a community of shared activity directed towards understanding the structure and function of the nervous system. In this volume, 17 illustrious neuroscientists tell the stories of their scientific work, the people that influenced them, and the major events and ideas that shaped their lives. One encounters again and again the same themes: dedication, tenacity, passion, and the sense that the writers have been captured by the intellectual life and by the promise and adventure of studying the nervous system. The result is a collection of fascinating essays that should inform and inspire students and working scientists alike. The general reader interested in science may also find the essays absorbing, as they are essentially human stories about commitment and the pursuit of knowledge.
