From the Back Cover
Cognitive Neuroscience: A Reader
provides the first definitive collection of readings in this burgeoning area of study. Michael S. Gazzaniga has brought together papers ranging from the earliest articles discussing brain plasticity through to papers recently published in the area of executive functioning.
The Reader is divided into distinct sections such as the History of Cognitive Neuroscience, Methods, Language and Unconscious Processing. Each of these sections contain four or five representative articles by eminent researchers that illustrate important methodological, empirical and theoretical issues. The sections are both introduced and contextualized by the author, and a selection of further reading is also provided.
Cognitive Neuroscience: A Reader will give professors not only a comprehensive reference volume for their own use, but also an ideal text to recommend to students.
