  • Abstract:

    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.
