"The Neuroplasticity chapter contains all of the information that is contained in the Cognitive Neuroscience book I currently use, and goes well beyond that book. I love the seamless integration of human, animal, and cellular levels of analysis. The case studies are gripping. The writing is
excellent and engaging and the figures are beautiful."
--Scott Slotnick, Boston College
"This is a very well-written, up-to-date, and well-thought-out book on cognitive neuroscience. Particularly impressive is the inclusion of chapters not included in most cognitive neuroscience textbooks. These include psychiatric disorders and addiction."
--Arne Ekstrom, University of California, Davis
"I'm impressed by how well the book is tailored to an undergraduate course, both in its scope and in its content. The writing is more clear and digestible for an undergraduate audience than most neuroscience books."
--Vonetta Dotson, University of Florida
"I like the authors' approach. They ask intriguing, meaningful questions and write clearly. They express wonder at new methods in neuroscience that are answering questions of how mind can emerge from the action of interconnected neurons. Their use of case studies and features keep the text
--Lewis Barker, Auburn University
