As I describe in About the Blog, I’ve been researching the notion of the “tyranny of the prefrontal cortex” and its implications for over three years, and I’m not even close to finished. I’ve plowed through (sometimes lovingly, sometimes laboriously) about 650 books and articles on the subject. With this blog, I want to share my current readings with whoever is interested. I won’t bother to review short “quickie” articles I come across in Nature, Science, PNAS, or other journals. But when I’ve finished a book or what I view as a “major article”, I’ll share it in these posts.
One note, though: these won’t be a full, objective review of the book/article in question. I’ll be writing about whatever I found relevant to the subject at hand. So you’ll get to see the work from the perspective of my “tyranny of the prefrontal cortex” research.
The reviews will get listed below as they’re posted (newest on top):
