Brain and Mind: For Better Understanding of the Dynamic Function of Mind and Its Supporting Brain Mechanism
Elsevier, 1997 - Medical - 341 pages
Hardbound. This volume forms a milestone in the continuing effort to analyze brain-mind relationships. Based on a stimulating meeting in which participants attempted to integrate heterogenous ideas and concepts related to brain and mind, the basic strategy is to find counterparts in neuroscience and cognitive science. Articles are presented on the subjects of Attention and Action, Memory and Learning, Space Representation, Motor Sequences and Frontal Lobe Function. These are central problems currently being addressed in neuroscience and cognitive science, and will therefore give the readers the most up-to-date views regarding brain - mind relationships.
