About Scientific American Mind
In an era when brain science is booming, Scientific American MIND serves as a lively guide to the latest research and insights on the human brain and behavior. At the same time, it offers readers a healthy dose of practical information on personal well-being and relationships. The bimonthly magazine features stories by leading scientists and top-notch journalists that provide clear but sophisticated reporting on memory, cognition, learning and the workings of the brain, as well as in-depth reports from the frontiers of research on autism, dementia, major mental illnesses and psychological health.
Scientific American MIND was launched by Scientific American in 2004, under the leadership of then Executive Editor—and current Editor-in-Chief—Mariette DiChristina. In 2006, it increased its frequency from quarterly to bimonthly. MIND shares its parent magazine’s commitment to bringing readers science reporting they can trust.
