HNN is displaying two essays espousing the interdisciplinary study wherein neuroscience and history can collaborate.
History is based on available data. It was fascinating to read that the neuroscience can help to gather more data through molecular genetics which could help to study the neuropathology. How? The postage stamps glued to letters have saliva of some historic personalities which could be retrieved. Fascinating. It will be a new set of data from past which historians can subject to their narration and interpretation format of history.
The HNN itself has pointed that they are displaying the articles on the topic to generate debate. It still requires some theoretical basis to develop a world of knowledge build upon the data provided by neuroscience.
Note; Subject to change as it is the first response on reading the article and it is instantaneous.
