Images of mind by Michael I Posner( Book )

26 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 1,100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scientists continue to try to pinpoint the physical mechanisms of the brain involved in perception, learning, memory, and other higher cognitive functions. Now they have at their command some remarkable investigative tools - including imaging technologies (primarily positron emission tomography, or PET) that are able to take pictures of the brain in action, rendering certain aspects of thought visible as they occur. By allowing scientists to see the physical changes brought on by mental activity, these technologies are helping to reveal the connections between different parts of the brain and specific functions of the mind. Images of Mind is a lavish showcase for PET, other brain imaging techniques, and the emerging field of cognitive neuroscience. Written by leading authorities Michael Posner (a cognitive psychologist) and Marcus Raichle (a neuroscientist), the book documents the often ingenious ways in which scientists are putting PET imaging to use. What happens to the brain physically when we read? Speak? Form mental images? Process information automatically? In Images of Mind, Posner and Raichle describe how cognitive neuroscientists investigate these functions and what they have learned. You will see how PET records change in the brain's blood flow during specific sensory stimulations and cognitive operations, and how those changes are measured objectively. You will also read about the latest applications of this field to studies of child development and mental disorders. Images of Mind reveals how far cognitive neuroscience has come in understanding the construction of thoughts and images in the brain. A compelling subject, fascinating illustrations, and authors who are foremost experts in the field combine to make this a particularly engrossing volume

Cognitive neuroscience of attention by Michael I Posner( Book )

28 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the latest advances in understanding attention: its anatomy, circuitry, functions, and deficits. Investigators have written chapters in which they not only summarize key findings but also illuminate their goals and the directions their research is taking. Coverage includes different cognitive models of attention; knowledge emerging from functional imaging and genetic studies; and neurophysiological, developmental, and neuropsychological approaches. Emerging knowledge is presented on processes that impair or alter attention, and clinical implications are discussed. Linking many levels of analysis, and featuring over 100 illustrations, the book moves us closer to a coherent view of the attentional system and the key role it plays in everyday life. --From publisher's description

AN INFORMATIONAL APPROACH TO THINKING by Michael I Posner( Book )

7 editions published between 1962 and 1969 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The general hypothesis of this thesis is that the amount of reduction of information from input to output is an important factor in the amount of thinking required by the task. This applies only to tasks which require the subject to process the input so that it is represented in a reduced form in the response. This hypothesis leads to the prediction that the greater theAMOUNT OF INFORMATION REDUCTION INVOLVED IN A TASK THE GREATER THE LENGTH OF TIME TO ACCOMPLISH IT, THE MORE ERRORS, THE GREATER THE VARIABILITY OVER SUBJECTS, AND THE LONGER THE LEARNING TIME. The possibility of specifying the amount of thinking required by a psychological task is demonstrated. Within a given task configuration the information reduction measure provides accurate prediction of human performance. It provides a base line useful of the comparison of performance among different types of tasks and in the classification of tasks. (Author)
