Overview

With over four hundred new citations, Cognitive Neuroscience, Second Edition, embraces the latest findings in this cutting-edge field. A revised chapter two, "The Cellular and Molecular Basis of Cognition," introduces new analysis of the chemical systems that support cognition, outlines the modulation of neuronal transmission during development and disease, and increases coverage of the function of membrane receptors in neurochemistry. An entirely new chapter three, "Gross and Functional Anatomy of Cognition," provides a foundation for working through the functional analysis of cognitive systems in subsequent chapters. The Second Edition also includes extensive coverage of computational modeling, highlighting the ways in which modeling demonstrates the neural mechanisms of cognition.

Author Biography: Michael Gazzaniga (Ph.D., California Institute of Technology) has held positions at the University of California, Santa Barbara; New York University; the State University of New York, Stony Brook; Cornell University Medical College; and the University of California, Davis. Currently, he is the David T. McLaughlin Distinguished Professor at Dartmouth College. Richard Ivry (Ph.D., University of Oregon) has held positions at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and now at the University of California, Berkeley. George Mangun (Ph.D., University of California, San Diego) has taught at Dartmouth Medical School and is now at Duke University.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Synthesizing the study of cognitive science, behavioral neurology, and behavioral neuroscience, this undergraduate textbook uses clinical case studies to humanize the scientific content. Chapters cover the history of the discipline, the cellular and molecular basis of cognition, the gross and functional anatomy, methodology, perception and encoding, selective attention and orientation, learning and memory, language and the brain, cerebral lateralization and specialization, the control of action, executive functions and frontal lobes, emotion, evolution, development and plasticity, and consciousness. A glossary is provided. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

He has established Centers for Cognitive Neuroscience at Cornell Medical School, the University of California, Davis, and at Dartmouth. He is founder of the Cognitive Neuroscience Institute and founding editor of the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience. He was a member of the President's Council on Bioethics from 2001–2009. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Science, the Institute of Medicine and the National Academy of Sciences.

Richard B. Ivry is Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Oregon. His research focuses on the relationship of cognition and action, using the many methods of cognitive neuroscience. Dr. Ivry is a senior editor for the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience and serves on the editorial boards of a number of other journals. Among his many honors, Dr. Ivry received the Troland Research Award from the National Academy of Sciences in 1997, and was elected a fellow of the Society of Experimental Psychologists in 2003 and the Association for Psychological Science in 2006.

George R. Mangun is Professor of Psychology and Neurology in the Center for Mind and Brain at the University of California, Davis. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego.
