Eshin Jolly and Aryeh Jolly, who describes his fellowship as “pretty awesome,” is a first-year graduate student in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, where he works with Professor Thalia Wheatley. What is the connection between our biology and our thoughts? The field of cognitive neuroscience is actually quite old. Can neuroscience provide evidence for a liberal and conservative thinking style? As the field continues to grow, we will better understand the social, biological, and cognitive factors that determine how we relate to others. How does our brain create our mind?

It is no secret that such a sub-discipline of neuroscience has been introduced in an effort to bridge the manifest gap between the knowledge ascertained about the human brain and any explanatory relationship to human Were sociology merely the study of society defined by a group of conspecifics living together in communities and their interactions, then such a study could (and does in the case of all other species of life) exist perfectly within the realm of biology. Deconstructing the most sensationalistic recent findings in Human Brain Imaging, Cognitive Neuroscience, and Psychopharmacology The first and foremost reason why we shouldn't simply disown neuroscience altogether is an obvious one: if we want to understand our minds, from which all of human nature springs, we must come to grips with the brain's biology. Neuro researchers are world leaders in cellular and molecular neuroscience, brain imaging, cognitive neuroscience and the study and treatment of epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and neuromuscular disorders. Bring forth computational cognitive neuroscience – i.e. Computational models based on biological properties of the brain can provide an important tool for understanding all of this complexity. The area of overlap between different disciplines, including cognitive neuroscience and education, has been identified as a transdisciplinary field of study called educational neuroscience or neuroeducation. David Brooks, cognitive neuroscientist. As recipients of NSF Graduate Research Fellowships, Eshin Jolly will pursue graduate studies in cognitive neuroscience at Dartmouth while Aryeh Drager '12 will head to Colorado State University to study atmospheric science. The second is that neuroscience has already told us lot, just not the sort of things we may think it has.
