Winner of the 2002 William James Book Award presented by the Society for General Psychology, Division One of the American Psychological Association. This award is given for the best book which furthers the mission of the Society for General Psychology by bringing together researchers and ideas from the various subfields of neuroscience and psychology.

The first edition of The Cognitive Neurosciences helped to define the field. The second edition reflects the many advances that have taken place-particularly in imaging and recording techniques. From the molecular level up to that of human consciousness, the contributions cover one of the most fascinating areas of science—the relationship between the structural and physiological mechanisms of the brain/nervous system and the psychological reality of mind. The majority of the chapters in this edition of The Cognitive Neurosciences are new, and those from the first edition have been completely rewritten and updated.

This major reference work is now available online as part of MIT CogNet, The Cognitive and Brain Sciences Community online.

Sections and section editors:

- Plasticity - Ira B. Black

- Development - Pasko Rakic

- Sensory Systems - J. Anthony Movshon and Colin Blakemore

- Motor - Emilio Bizzi

- Attention - Michael I. Posner

- Memory - Endel Tulving

- Language - Willem J. M. Levelt

- Thought and Memory - Edward E. Smith and Stephen M. Kosslyn

- Emotion - Joseph E. LeDoux

- Evolution - Leda Cosmides and John Tooby

- Consciousness - Daniel L. Schacter

Reports human & animal research on visual develop- ment, synaptic plasticity; trauma; domain specificity, etc.

Editorial Reviews

Modeled on the classic Neuroscience Study Program volumes which helped delineate an emerging field, this new reference documents and defines the evolving field of cognitive neuroscience. The 92 original contributions provide comprehensive coverage--from the molecular level right up to human conscious experience--of the relationship between the structural and physiological mechanisms of the brain/nervous system and the psychological reality of mind. The volume is divided into 11 sections: molecular and cellular plasticity, neural and psychological development, sensory systems, strategies and planning--motor systems, attention, memory, language, thought and imagery, emotion, evolutionary perspectives, and consciousness.
