[Xmca-l] Re: Soviet/Russian critique of West neurosciences



Hi Arturo--

Excellent topic, says me from my biased perspective. You might check out
the lead article here. (At least the refs should be decipherable and there
is a bonus article by Harry Daniels!):

I agree with Natalia that Tanya Akhutina is also an excellent person to
turn to, along with Bella Kotik-Friedgut who is on this list. They can
certainly point you further.
