After centuries of debate regarding the relation between mind and body, the field of cognitive neuroscience is demonstrating that all aspects of human mental life arise from the biology of the brain. The 2010 volume of The Year in Cognitive Neuroscience presents leading scientists’ current thinking in several areas including reflections on our understanding of the neural basis of social cognition; analysis of what magnetoencephalography (MEG) has contributed, and will contribute, to our understanding of the neural mechanisms of cognitive function; and an anatomical model of language based on the synthesis of over 100 fMRI studies performed in 2009. The 2010 issue of The Year in Cognitive Neuroscience has managed to capture the excitement and enormous strides that have occurred within the field, and the individual and collective bodies of work it presents will impact the future direction and discoveries of cognitive neuroscience.
