The Neuroscience of Animal Intelligence: From the Seahare to the Seahorse
A critical survey of the physiological approach to learning, memory, and intelligence in non-human animals, emphasizing the implications of physiological research for theories of intelligent processes in intact animals. After introducing two new approaches -- comparative neurology and computational neuroscience -- the book concludes with a discussion of the role of neocortex in perception and in general intelligence.
