A Revolution in Neuroscience Gary Marcus, brain scientist and Professor in the Department of Psychology at New York University, wrote in the preface to his compilation, The Future of the Brain: Essays By the World’s Leading Neuroscientists, “There’s never been a more exciting moment in neuroscience than now. At present, neuroscience is a collection of facts, still awaiting an overarching theory; if there has been plenty of progress, there is even more that we don’t know. But a confluence of new technologies… may change that.”
