Audible Editor Reviews

 

This edition of popular neuroscience and psychology publication Scientific American Mind features a riveting cover story about the burgeoning field of "neurocriminology",which seeks to identify and even manipulate the biological, environmental, and genetic roots of criminal behavior. Five additional articles delve into related neuropsychology issues, presenting research and discussion about topics including the scientific explanation for crying (a trait unique to humans), why people suffer from migraines, the causes behind phantom voices, and even the questions and controversy surrounding increased medical use of brains-scanning technology in recent years.

Skilled voice actor Mark Moran’s clear, measured narration makes it easy to enjoy and understand these varied and extremely educational articles.

      "Best of this series so far..."

      Highlights include an analysis of brain imaging in the courtroom and why this science is far too inperfect at this stage to replace human judgment and how crying resets our parasympathetic nervous system...

      Story
      "Quite Dry"

      I lost interest in the material mostly because of the presentation. This was my introduction to Scientific American Mind, and perhaps this isn't their best. The first story was much more of an argument about why brain scans should not be used in assigning culpability in trial than a discussion of the science of brain scans. The other stories were better, but they lacked the depth of detail that I was hoping for. I will try another edition and hope the content and presentation are better.
