The New Cognitive Neurosciences

By Michael S. Gazzaniga



Description:

Gazzaniga has arrayed some of the world's leaders in one of the most exciting areas of neuroscience -- cognitive neuroscience -- and has woven their contributions into a comprehensive and well-documented, yet accessible and provocative, overview. This book belongs on the shelf of any reader interested in the brain and behavior." -- Stephen G. Waxman, Chairman, Department of Neurology, Yale Medical School
The first edition of The Cognitive Neurosciences helped to define the field. The second edition reflects the many advances that have taken place-particularly in imaging and recording techniques. From the molecular level up to that of human consciousness, the contributions cover one of the most fascinating areas of science--the relationship between the structural and physiological mechanisms of the brain/nervous system and the psychological reality of mind. The majority of the chapters in this edition of The Cognitive Neurosciences are new, and those from the first edition have been completely rewritten and updated.
