This chapter is a major revision. We have a new co-author and a reworked chapter. Sections related to intersectionality and implicit bias are added and infused throughout as a new emphasis. While much of the brain science content is the same and only updated, given the new organization, it is probably best to treat this as a new chapter because the revisions were extensive and are not tracked.
