Want more Scientific American?
College English professor who loves classic literature, psychology, neurology and hates pop trash like Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey.
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...
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.
