Jonah Lehrer Departs Wired for The New Yorker

By Chris O'Shea Comment

Jonah Lehrer is leaving his spot at Wired to join The New Yorker as a staff writer. Lehrer is a published author — How We Decide, Proust Was a Neuroscientist and Imagine — and his work has appeared in several publications, including The New York Times MagazineNature and Outside.

At Wired, Lehrer writes, “I’ll no longer be a contributing editor at Wired, where I’ve spent the last several years. I’m saddened by this, as I’m a huge fan of the magazine and website and I’ve tremendously enjoyed working with my editors at Wired.”

His blog, Frontal Cortex, is now housed at The New Yorker’s site.
