Frontiers in cognitive neuroscience( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frontiers in Cognitive Neuroscience is the first book of extensive readings in an exciting new field that is built on the assumption that "the mind is what the brain does" and that seeks to understand how brain function gives rise to mental activities such as perception, memory, and language. The editors, a cognitive scientist and a neuroscientist, have worked together to select contributions that provide the interdisciplinary foundations of this emerging field, putting them into context both historically and with regard to current issues." "Fifty-five articles are grouped in parts that cover vision, auditory and somatosensory systems, attention, memory, and higher cortical functions. Articles range from Gazzaniga, Bogen, Sperry's discussion of functional effects of sectioning the cerebral commissure in man and Geschwind's classic study of the organization of language and the brain, published in the 1960s, to contemporary investigations by Schiller and Logothetis on color-opponent and broad-band channels of the primate visual system and by Bekkers and Stevens on presynaptic mechanisms for long-term potentiation in the hippocampus. The editors have provided both a general introduction and introductions to each of the five major parts."--Jacket

The languages of the brain( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The only way we can convey our thoughts in detail to another person is through verbal language. Does this imply that our thoughts ultimately rely on words? Is there only one way in which thoughts can occur? This ambitious book takes the contrary position, arguing that many possible "languages of thought" play different roles in the life of the mind.
