""Cognitive Neuroscience" is a very nice volume, with excellent contributors and timely topics. The chapters are, without exception, well-written and do an excellent job of surveying their field. The authors themselves are an impressive set of scientists. This is a superb collection that will be widely read."
-- Martha Farah, Professor of Psychology, University of Pennsylvania Researchers in the new discipline of cognitive neuroscience combine the concepts and methods of cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and neurophysiology in an attempt to understand the brains role in cognitive functions. The nine chapters of this book, written by leading authorities in their fields, cover major topics in cognitive neuroscience, including noninvasive measurement of human brain activity, neural information coding, neural mechanisms of memory and movement, working memory, language, and consciousness.
