Cognitive Neuroscience: The Biology of the Mind / Edition 1by Michael S. Gazzaniga, George Mangun, Richard Ivry
Pub. Date: 02/28/1998
Publisher: Norton, W. W. & Company, Inc.
Written by leading researchers in the field, Cognitive Neuroscience: The Biology of the Mind shows how the complex processes of the mind--language, memory, attention, feelings--are enabled by the underlying biology of the brain. Relying on patient studies and case histories rather than lab experiments on animals, the authors explore the underlying neurological chemistry behind critical human diseases, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, and suggests various treatments. A series of interviews with other researchers bring the science to life as they discuss their pathbreaking discoveries and speculate about new frontiers for the discipline.
