Bringing together contributors working on a common problem but addressing different levels of brain organization by way of different techniques, "The Mind-Brain Continuum" seeks to determine which scientific questions are most pressing as we move toward discovering the neurobiology of psychological processes. As the title implies, contributions are organized around the notion that mental activity is brain activity, providing a broad, integrated view of a particular subset of brain function. The focus is on sensory perception, processes that include somatosensory, auditory, and olfactory processes, as well research on vision.

Contributors include: Albert S. Bregman. Patricia S. Churchland. Martha Constantine-Paton. Antonio R. Damasio. Hannah Damasio. Howard Eichenbaum. Rodolfo R. Lliná s. Nikos K. Logothetis. Christoph von deMalsburg. Stephen E. McAdams. Michael M. Merzenich. Vilayanur S. Ramachandran. John A. Simmons. Wolf Singer.
