Recommended by Aaron Hebble, Graduate Programs Admissions Coordinator (Dec. 2015): This book is a fascinating introduction to the current state of brain science, in which Fine reveals the pervasiveness of "neurosexism" and persuasively dismantles its claims with clear, accessible, and highly potent argumentation.
Recommended by Mary Whisner, reference librarian (Dec. 2015): Intellectual memoir by one of the pioneers of behavioral economics. A helpful and interesting tour of the research with some good anecdotes thrown in.
A neuroscientist sees a brain scan from his control group stack and immediately sees that it should have been with the group of scans from prisoners who have been labeled psychopaths. He breaks the code to find out whose it is. Uh-oh: it's his. Both a memoir and an introduction to the psychology and physiology of psychopaths. – Mary Whisner, research services librarian (April 2017)
