About the Author

Jessica Pykett is a social and political geographer at the University of Birmingham, UK. Her research to date has focussed on the geographies of citizenship, education and behavioural forms of governance. Her previous books include The Pedagogical State and Changing Behaviours (with Rhys Jones and Mark Whitehead). She teaches on the spatial politics of welfare, work and wealth.

Reviews

"Pykett's uniquely geographical perspective on the psycho-spatial connects brain culture to city design, educational spaces and affective workplaces, arguing cogently for a politically engaged approach to the worldly implications of brain research." Gail Davies, University of Exeter "Amid the profusion of literature on neuroscience and its implications for society comes this welcome and necessary intervention. With characteristic clarity, precision and depth, Jessica Pykett charts the full reach of neuroscientific and behavioural explanations that are used to shape the policies and practices through which we are governed." Elizabeth Gagen, Aberystwyth University
