Overview

Here is a complete investigation of the correlation between brain cell mapping and nerve impulses. This informative text concentrates on how the structure and function of the nervous system allows perceptual categorization and learning to occur. Incorporating the latest theoretical and experimental approaches, it examines recognition of biologically significant stimuli in the environment; biological constraints in the fundamental process of categorization and generalization; development of patterns of anatomical and functional connectivity within the nervous system; varieties, locations and uses of mapped representations in the nervous system; interactions between sensory systems, and between sensory systems and motor systems in the control of movement; brain mechanisms in language and much more.
