The new and rapidly evolving field of cognitive neuroscience brings together cognitive psychology and neuroscience, drawing conceptual and technical elements from both these traditional disciplines. Principles of Cognitive Neuroscience, introduced in 2008, was written to inform readers at all levels about the growing canon of cognitive neuroscience, and to make clear the many challenges that remain to be solved.
Written by leading authors, this bestselling cognitive neuroscience text is thoroughly updated and revised for its second edition, making it more accessible and student-friendly
1: Cognitive Neuroscience: Definitions, Themes, and Approaches.- 2:The Methods of Cognitive Neuroscience.- 3:Sensory Systems and Perception: Vision.- 4: Sensory Systems and Perception: Auditory, Mechanical, and Chemical Senses.- 5: Motor Systems: The Organization of Action.- 6: Attention and its Effects on Stimulus Processing.- 7: The Control of Attention.- 8: Memory: Varieties and Mechanisms.- 9: Declarative Memory.- 10: Emotion.- 11: Social Cognition.- 12: Language.- 13: Executive Functions.- 14: Decision Making.- 15: Evolution and Development of Brain and Cognition.- Appendix: The Human Nervous System.
Written by seven leading authors, the text covers the growing subject of cognitive neuroscience and makes clear the many challenges that remain to be solved. Now, in this second edition, the text has been streamlined to 15 chapters for ease of reference. The condensation makes the topics covered easier to assimilate, and better suited to presentation in a single-semester course.
Each chapter has been updated to address the latest developments in the field, including expanded coverage of genetics, evolution, and neural development. Introductory Boxes in each chapter take up an especially interesting issue to better capture readers' attention. An appendix reviews the major features of human neuroanatomy and basic aspects of neural signaling.
As before, this edition includes an extensive glossary of key terms. And, with every new copy of the book, we offer a fully upgraded version of Sylvius 4 Online, which includes an interactive tutorial on human neuroanatomy as well as a magnetic resonance imaging atlas of the human brain.
