The Dictionary of Neurology Project seeks to inform scholars, physicians, scientists and the wider public about trends in the history of neurology and neuroscience. While it is foremostly concerned with promoting history for the sake of history, the project also seeks to inform about and critique the growth of "neuroculture," a trend that has emerged in various quarters in the last two decades to ascribe complex elements of culture and society to human neurobiology.
Our contributors provide commentary, critique, and high quality content about the neurosciences, and we seek to establish and build a broad and global community that engages in historical and sociological studies devoted to the many sciences (clincial and basic) that primarily focus on the nervous system. This blog, in consequence, serves university and medical communities as well as wider publics.
Subscribers wishing to notify our readers about salient developments in the history and sociology of scientific knowledge, medical history, and philosophy of neuroscience are welcome to write to us.
We also welcome unsolicited contributions, provided they demonstrate the standards of rigor demanded by our editorial team.
