Hi everyone,
I’m sure this isn’t what you expected when you saw I had a new video up. I’m not actually going to talk about any
neuroscience topics specifically in this video, and I’ll try to keep it brief, but it might be
just a little bit longer than the 2 minutes you’ve come to expect from this channel. But there are a couple reasons that I wanted
to make a more personal video like this today. First, and most importantly, I wanted to say
thank you. This channel will be celebrating its 5 year
anniversary next month. When I started creating 2-minute neuroscience
videos almost 5 years ago, I was just trying to come up with a way to help students understand
some of the tough neuroanatomy concepts I was teaching in class. I never expected that I’d still be making
videos five years later. And if it wasn’t for all of the positive
feedback I got from you all, in the form of comments, and likes, and people subscribing
to my channel, then I’m sure I wouldn’t still be doing it, because that’s what gives
me the motivation to keep making these videos. So really, this channel is made possible by
you all. So thank you for that. I will continue to make videos as long as
you continue to find them useful or interesting. The other reason for me making this video
today is that I have an announcement to make. So for the past year or so I’ve been writing
a book, and it’s finally finished now and ready to be published in September by Nicholas
Brealey Publishing. The book is titled Your Brain, Explained,
and my goal in writing it was to create an introduction to neuroscience that would be
enjoyable and understandable both to people who are well-versed in neuroscience and to
people who have no neuroscience background at all. So I cover a lot of the same topics in the
book that I’ve talked about in my videos, but it also obviously goes a lot deeper into
things that are too dense to cover in 2 minutes. So there are chapters, for example, on things
like fear, and sadness, and sleep, and pleasure, and in those chapters I cover topics that
I’ve made videos about like the amygdala, ssris, the brainstem, the reward system, and
a long list of others. So if you like neuroscience and you like my
videos then you might like my book, too. If you’re interested, I put some links into
the video description below where you can pre-order the book; there also will be a clickable
ad that will come up at the end of this video that you can use to pre-order it, too. The official publication date is September
24th, and at that point it will come out in paperback and ebook formats. If you pre-order, not only will you be one
of the first to get the book, but also you’ll be helping me out a lot by creating some interest
in the book early on, and that makes it more likely that booksellers will want to order
copies for their inventories. So I just wanted to let you all know about
that. I’m well over my normal time limit for videos
on this channel, so I’m going to get back to making my next 2-minute video, which will
be on cranial nerve 9. Thanks once again for all of your support.

    Congratulations on the book!

    Looking forward to your book ! Congratulations and thank you so much for your educational content. I cannot tell you how much it has helped and how far it can reach. I'll be finishing my MSc education next year in neuroscience of language (after coming from a linguistics background), to which I could actually transition after getting the necessary course accreditation. Your channel has helped me so much for memorizing tons of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology from scratch, after thinking I could never be able to go through all the material that is so crucial in cognitive science. Thank you again for posting so much quality free content and helping out the next generation of students.
