Due to the revolution in the neurosciences and the growth in neuroscientific research,
there has been a steady increase of attention on neuro-matters in science, society
and culture. The brain and neuroscientific research remain at the centre of public and
academic attention worldwide. Critical Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary (or better,
post-disciplinary) space for the systematic exploration of neuroscientific research
and neuro-matters. It is argued that Critical Neuroscience, as a recent addition to
neuroscientific research, has the potential to develop as a genuine human science
for the investigation of the role and influence of the brain on human phenomena.
Together with the growing interest worldwide in neuroscientific research, engagement
with neuro-matters in general asks for a critical engagement with one of the fastest
growing areas of scientific research.
