Welcome to Brain Stories

Curious about the brain? About behavior and experiences/feelings, your own and other people's? There's lots on Serendip to help you think about such things, and to encourage you to develop new understandings and new questions about them, including a whole section on Brain and Behavior and another on Mental Health. And, of course, there are new observations being made all of the time, reported in professional journals, newspapers, magazines, books, and on the web.

Brain Stories calls attention to recent findings that seem particularly interesting from Serendip's perspective and provides forum for discussion of them. Your thoughts on these are not only welcome but are an important part of helping everyone, including research scientists, make sense of what we are discovering and have yet to discover about the brain. Like all Serendip forums, this is a place not for conclusions but rather for thoughts in progress, a place to find ideas that might be helpful to you in developing your own stories about the brain and to leave ideas that might be helpful to others in developing theirs.
