George Paxinos

Bio: George Paxinos is an NHMRC Senior Principal Research Fellow at NeuRA and Scientia Professor at UNSW. He finished high school in Ithaca, Greece, and studied at UC Berkeley, McGill and Yale. He identified 94 hitherto unknown regions in the brain of rats and humans and published 57 books on the brain and spinal cord of humans and experimental animals. His first book, The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, is the most cited work in neuroscience. His Atlas of the Human Brain received awards from the American Association of Publishers and the British Medical Association. He has written a novel in the Eco-Fiction genre called A River Divided. Neuroscience principles were used in the formation of charters, such as those related to the mind, soul, free will and consciousness. Environmental issues are at the centre of the novel, including the question of whether the brain is the right “size” for survival:
