Return to Reason: The Science of Thought

Why do facts fail to change people’s minds? In this eBook, we examine how we form our beliefs and maintain them with a host of cognitive biases, the difference between intelligence and thinking rationally and some solutions for how to overcome these obstacles both in reasoning with others and in dealing with our own prejudices.



Music and the Brain

Neuroscientists have shown that music recruits nearly every area of the brain. Here, we examine the latest imaging studies and discuss music's role in learning math and language, promoting social connections and treating brain injuries.

Pain: The Search for Relief

Chronic pain is a poorly understood condition that often resists treatment. In this eBook, we examine what we know of its pathology and the efforts to find non-opioid treatment options including electrical stimulation, spider venom and virtual reality therapy.
