Overview

Cognitive neuroscience has undergone explosive growth in the past ten years. New brain-imaging technologies have allowed researchers to address questions that until recently remained in the realm of mere speculation. Moreover, better computers and new theories have led to more detailed models of neural function.
These developments have made it possible to link perception, attention, memory, and other aspects of cognition to neurobiology.Because researchers come to cognitive neuroscience from a variety of fields, researchers and students alike find it difficult to ascertain the core literature. This volume, which contains forty-six review articles from recent issues of Current Opinion in Neurobiology, provides easy access to the current state of theory and findings in the field. The book is organized into five sections: Perception and Attention, Neuronal Plasticity and
Memory, Cognition, The Organization of Action, and Development and Structure. The articles contain bibliographies to enable the reader to pursue individual topics in greater depth.
