Brain function is new field of science made up of more than one traditional field of study with research conducted by investigators from seven broad fields (biology, chemistry, psychology, information science, philosophy, anthropology, and linguistics). (Howard, Pierce J., PhD. The Owner’s Manual for the Brain. p 25-26, 726. GA: Bard Press, 1994, 2000.)

Brain-based research came into its own in the 1990s. Gurian’s book brings together three primary points of view on brain-based research: Neurologcial and endocrinological (hormonal) effects on learning and development; Developmental psychology; Gender-difference research. (Gurian, Michael, PhD, and Patricia Henley, with Terry Trueman. Boys and Girls Learn Differently! p 2. CA: Jossey-Bass, 2001.)
