Wasserman describes recent technological advances, such as the f MRI and EEG, and how those new technological advances have contributed to the every growing field of neuroscience. He did make an exceptional point stating that our focus on the brain is too narrow. While this specific information on parts of the brain is good, we should be looking more at the brain as a whole.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
