It's All in Your Head

The dynamic and rapidly expanding field of neuroscience traditionally has involved the study of the nervous system from a biological/medical standpoint. In recent years, however, the science has become multidisciplinary, attracting researchers from computer science, psychology, sociology, philosophy, and even the humanities. For public and college libraries, developing a well-rounded, balanced, and broadly accessible collection of books, periodicals, DVDs, and web sites on this highly technical and academic subject can be challenging. This article presents a bibliography that provides a general listing of recent titles, mostly nonmedical, that demonstrate neuroscience's breadth. Since any of the new subfields (neurobiology, neuropsychology, etc.) that are developing on an almost daily basis are worthy of a collection development article of their own, this compilation aims to serve as a starting point from which librarians can build more specialized collections, depending on their patrons' interests and information needs.
