The brain sciences are influencing our understanding of human behavior as never before, from neuropsychiatry and neuroeconomics to neurotheology and neuroaesthetics. Many now believe that the brain is what makes us human, and it seems that neuroscientists are poised to become the new experts in the management of human conduct. Neuro describes the key developments--theoretical, technological, economic, and biopolitical--that have enabled the neurosciences to gain such traction outside the laboratory. It explores the ways neurobiological conceptions of personhood are influencing everything from child rearing to criminal justice, and are transforming the ways we "know ourselves" as human beings. In this emerging neuro-ontology, we are not "determined" by our neurobiology: on the contrary, it appears that we can and should seek to improve ourselves by understanding and acting on our brains. Neuro examines the implications of this emerging trend, weighing the promises against the perils, and evaluating some widely held concerns about a neurobiological "colonization" of the social and human sciences. Despite identifying many exaggerated claims and premature promises, Neuro argues that the openness provided by the new styles of thought taking shape in neuroscience, with its contemporary conceptions of the neuromolecular, plastic, and social brain, could make possible a new and productive engagement between the social and brain sciences.

    Thank you for the tips! I think a great method to stick to this tips is to use the appropriate application on your laptop/Phone/Tablet. There are many apps that allow you to practice efficiently these tips. I use Beesy on iPad which is an all-in-one for productivity and I'm pretty good with it, above all it helps me prioritizing and keeping focus to one action at a time. I strongly recommend it!

    I left Godaddy even though I chose them first thinking they were an American company and would be professional. I worked 25 years internationally in Animation and Special effects, and thought I made a safe choice.

      With Squarespace's Personal plan, you can only create up to 20 webpages. So if you already have 20 pages, and want to create a new page, you will have to delete one of your older pages, or upgrade to the Professional Plan to get unlimited pages.

      My question is how necessary are apps and plugins? Does Wix need them and Squarespace doesn't or are they just an enhancement? I'm playing with both of them but am completely new to all of this and am trying to weigh all of this before I get too far. Thanks again!

    Hi Jeremy,Awesome reviews, thanks for all of the great info. I do have a question though Р not sure if this is possible on any of the above builders Р I'm looking to build a site that allows users to post their own content. I read below that uploading things like pictures will require an actual developer, but can any of the above builders allow users to create their own account (just a username and password) and let them upload text posts? Similar to if you're familiar with that.
