Cognitive neuroscience is entering an exciting era in w

Cognitive neuroscience is entering an exciting era in which new technologies and ideas are making it possible to study the neural basis of cognition, perception, memory and emotion at the level of networks of interacting neurons, the level at which we believe many of the important operations of the brain take place.
John O’Keefe
I read a couple of books about neuroscience and the relationship between the mind and the body.
Joel Kinnaman
It doesn’t matter whether it is chemistry or immunology or neuroscience: I just do research on what I find interesting.
Susumu Tonegawa
The neuroscience area – which is absolutely in its infancy – is much more important than genetics.
Leon Kass
I contemplated a career at NIH at one point. I have a neuroscience background.
Bill Maris
I think neuroscience is obviously very esoteric, but I think there are aspects of it that can absolutely be brought down to the level of an interested 11-, 12-, 13-year-old easily.
Mayim Bialik
For moral judgment, I think the most interesting trends in neuroscience are the ways in which judgments vary as a function of how emotionally salient the situation is.
Robert Sapolsky
When it comes to exploring the mind in the framework of cognitive neuroscience, the maximal yield of data comes from integrating what a person experiences – the first person – with what the measurements show – the third person.
Daniel Goleman
I’ve always been fascinated with knowing the self. This fascination led me to submerge myself in art, study neuroscience, and later to become a psychotherapist.
Ariel Garten
I can be a bit of a science geek. I tend more towards reading about brain science, neuroscience.
William Mapother
Any neuroscience book is the death of me. I’m currently obsessed with ‘The Moral Landscape’ from Sam Harris. He’s a controversial writer addressing science and religion while talking about the deep undertaking of your brain.
Eiza Gonzalez
Neuroscience over the next 50 years is going to introduce things that are mind-blowing.
David Eagleman
Neuroscience is a baby science, a mere century old, and our scientific understanding of the brain is nowhere near where we’d like it to be. We know more about the moons of Jupiter than what is inside of our skulls.
Matt Haig
I always wanted to be a scientist, I always thought I’d be a scientist, that was the narrative I was carrying around. I worked in a neuroscience lab as an undergraduate and then after, almost five years in total, but I realized I just wasn’t good at science. I didn’t have the discipline for it.
Jonah Lehrer
I have a neuroscience background – that’s what my doctorate is in – and I was trained to study hormones of attachment, so I definitely feel my parenting is informed by that.
Mayim Bialik
Why is it surprising that scientists might have long hair and wear cowboy boots? In fields like neuroscience, where the events you are recording are so minute, I suspect scientists cultivate a boring, reliable image. A scientist with a reputation for flamboyance might be suspect.
Steven Pinker
There’s a lot of neuroscience now raising the question, ‘Is all the intelligence in the human body in the brain?’, and they’re finding out that, no, it’s not like that. The body has intelligence itself, and we’re much more of an organic creature in that way.
Joel Kinnaman
Roivant does not view – and has never viewed – Axovant as simply a ‘vehicle’ for developing intepirdine, but instead as a platform for the development of high-impact drugs in dementia and the neuroscience field more generally.
Vivek Ramaswamy
I work in a mix of areas and am informed by them all: child development, psycholinguistics, education, and most especially, cognitive neuroscience.
Maryanne Wolf
I worked hard when I was a consultant. I worked hard when I was in graduate school looking at neuroscience. I worked hard as a teacher. But those are completely different career paths. And the lack of direction is why I didn’t get far enough in any of those things.
Angela Duckworth
Exciting discoveries in neuroscience are allowing us to fit educational methods to new understandings of how the brain develops.
John Katzman
Formally, I did my studies in the sciences, but I was very conscious that I was being deprived of culture. While studying neuroscience, I was running a rock-music festival and was able to use that as a platform to explore what it takes to produce art for 20,000 inebriated 20-somethings.
Natalie Jeremijenko
I studied neuroscience at the cellular level, so I was looking at learning and memory in the visual cortex of rats. Neuroscience mainly exposed me to a way of thinking – about experimentation, about what you believe to be true and how you could prove it – and how to approach things in a methodical manner.
Ze Frank
The thing you realize when you get into studying neuroscience, even a little bit, is that everything is connected to everything else. So it’s as if the brain is trying to use everything at its disposal – what it is seeing, what it is hearing, what is the temperature, past experience.
Paul Allen
Moore’s Law-based technology is so much easier than neuroscience. The brain works in such a different way from the way a computer does.
Paul Allen
I’m a professor of neuroscience at Stanford University, and I’m kind of half-neurobiologist, half-primatologist.
Robert Sapolsky
Neuroscience is by far the most exciting branch of science because the brain is the most fascinating object in the universe. Every human brain is different – the brain makes each human unique and defines who he or she is.
Stanley B. Prusiner
I’m enormously interested to see where neuroscience can take us in understanding these complexities of the human brain and how it works, but I do think there may be limits in terms of what science can tell us about what does good and evil mean anyway, and what are those concepts about?
Francis Collins
There are things that neuroscience is useful for in terms of understanding behavior, but there are also things it is not all that useful for, like understanding the nuances of our reactions to poetry.
Alissa Quart
Science fiction has these obsessions with certain sciences – large scale engineering, neuroscience.
Paolo Bacigalupi
