Jonah Lehrer Joins The New Yorker as Staff Writer

Author and journalist Jonah Lehrer has joined The New Yorker as a staff writer.

He announced the news on his Wired Magazine blog: “Needless to say, I’m very excited. Unfortunately, this means 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. This also means that my blog, Frontal Cortex, will be moving to the newyorker.com. You can find all my new posts here.”

Lehrer has published three books: Imagine, How We Decide and Proust Was a Neuroscientist. Follow this link to read his first New Yorker essay, “Why Daydreaming Makes You Smarter and More Creative.”
