Neuroscience of Communication
Following a very successful first edition, Neuroscience of Communication, 2E has been revised and updated and is one step ahead of its predecessor. It continues to provide readers with a deep understanding and lively untellectual curiosity of the brain and how it works. Chapter summaries are included and each chapter has a "study guide" of pertinent questions to help the student review. Marginal notes and boxes are included throughout the text and important terms are printed in bold-faced type and indexed. Many of the discussions have been clarified or expanded and Chapter Four in the first edition is now two chapters in the second edition. Also included are 14 new illustrations and a new chapter on sensory systems.
