Overview

The Cerebral Computer: An Introduction To the Computational Structure of the Human Brain by Robert J. Baron

Viewing the human brain as "the most complex and powerful computer known," with a memory capacity and computational power exceeding the largest mainframe systems, Professor Baron sets the groundwork for understanding the computational structure and organization of the human brain. He provides the introductory framework necessary for this new and growing field of investigation and he discusses human vision, mental imagery, sensory-motor functions, audition, affect and behavior.
