The Tools of Neuroscience Experiment: Philosophical and Scientific Perspectives
Ed. by John Bickle, Carl Craver, Ann-Sophie Bawich
Forthcoming (December 2021?) with Routledge!
This volume establishes the conceptual foundation for sustained investigation into tool development in neuroscience. Neuroscience relies on diverse and sophisticated experimental tools, and its ultimate explanatory target--our brains and hence the organ driving our behaviors--catapults the investigation of these research tools into a philosophical spotlight.
--> The book also contains a co-authored chapter with Lu Xu where we will give a first person account on how she used SCAPE microscopy to investigate mixture coding in olfaction, discovering a hitherto unknown coding mechanism at the periphery!
