The History of Neuroscience in Autobiography
This book is the inaugural volume of autobiographical essays by distinguished senior neuroscientists; it is the first collection of neuroscience writing that is primarily autobiographical. As neuroscience is a young discipline, the contributors to this volume are truly pioneers of scientific research on the brain and spinal cord. This collection of fascinating essays 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.The contributors included in this volume are: Denise Albe-Fessard, Julius Axelrod, Peter O. Bishop, Theodore H. Bullock, Irving T. Diamond, Robert Galambos, Viktor Hamburger, Sir Alan L. Hodgkin, David H. Hubel, Herbert H. Jasper, Sir Bernard Katz, Seymour S. Kety, Benjamin Libet, Louis Sokoloff, James M. Sprague, Curt von Euler and John Z. Young.
