Michael S. Gazzaniga. It is not a book on the psychological or logical aspects of cognition

Michael S. If neurons and their growth and deployment in the evolving brain are not your cup of tea, this book isn't for you. It is not a book on the psychological or logical aspects of cognition. This book regards the biology of mind and composes several papers regarding Neuroscience in one volume. be prepared with a dictionary and a willingness to assimilate some really intricate detail regarding neuron function and growth from the cellular level to the cranial.

From the molecular level up to that of human consciousness, the contributions cover one of the most fascinating areas of science-the relationship between the structural and physiological mechanisms of the brain/nervous system and the psychological reality of mind.

Handbook of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience (Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience). The Cognitive Neurosciences Cognition, Brain, and Consciousness: Introduction to Cognitive Neuroscience. Gazzaniga, one of the premiere doctors of neuroscience, was born on December 12, 1939 in Los Angeles. Books such as The Social Brain and The Mind's Past bring forth new information and theories regarding how the brain functions, interacts, and responds with the body and the environment.

The new cognitive neurosciences.

Great for any cognitive neuroscience or cognition class. com User, February 15 Verified Purchase. This book is very easy to read and understand. It explains terms in a simple way that is easy to understand. I initially used this book for my cognitive neuroscience class and now I use it for my cognition class.

Winner of the 2002 William James Book Award presented by the Society for General Psychology, Division One of the American Psychological Association. This award is given for the best book which furthers the mission of the Society for General Psychology by bringing together researchers and ideas from the various subfields of neuroscience and psychology. The first edition of The Cognitive Neurosciences helped to define the field. The second edition reflects the many advances that have taken place-particularly in imaging and recording techniques. From the molecular level up to that of human consciousness, the contributions cover one of the most fascinating areas of science—the relationship between the structural and physiological mechanisms of the brain/nervous system and the psychological reality of mind. The majority of the chapters in this edition of The Cognitive Neurosciences are new, and those from the first edition have been completely rewritten and updated. This major reference work is now available online as part of MIT CogNet, The Cognitive and Brain Sciences Community online. Sections and section editors: - Plasticity - Ira B. Black - Development - Pasko Rakic - Sensory Systems - J. Anthony Movshon and Colin Blakemore - Motor - Emilio Bizzi - Attention - Michael I. Posner - Memory - Endel Tulving - Language - Willem J. M. Levelt - Thought and Memory - Edward E. Smith and Stephen M. Kosslyn - Emotion - Joseph E. LeDoux - Evolution - Leda Cosmides and John Tooby - Consciousness - Daniel L. Schacter

I think I can claim to be probably the only clinical neurologist who has read both this book and its first edition cover to cover, which really reflects the fascination of the articles more than incredible compulsivity on my part. The book is divided into 11 sections--development, plasticity, sensory systems, motor systems, attention, memory, language, higher cognitive functions, emotion, evolution, and consciousness, with anywhere from 8-15 articles in each section (total 94 chapters!), averaging around 15 pages each, and a helpful introduction written by an expert for the sections. There are also a large number of color illustrations. For the most part, the articles are very clearly written reviews, and would be appropriate for the upper undergraduate or graduate level student. The emphasis is obviously more on neuroscience than on clinical medicine, though helpful correlates to neurological patients can be found in many chapters. Michael Gazzaniga has once again done a masterful job in assembling contributors, and it is wonderful to see how much the field has advanced since the first edition of this book was published in 1995. For anyone with more than a casual interest in the field, this book is a MUST HAVE!!

I am a freshman in High School and after taking a semester course in Biology Honors and a little guidance from my teacher I set out to do my final human anatomy project on how drugs affect the synaptic regions in nerve cells. Using this book and the Internet i completed the project successfully. The thing about this book is that if you already don't have some understanding of the nervous system, this book may be confusing, yet if you want the latest in the field and not to much history and coverage on the supposed "Mind-Body Problem" get this book. This book is a great text for showing the cell processes and overall nervous system.If you just want a basic understanding of how the nervous system works, get another book, yet if you want to comprehend and do some nice research papers i would recommend this book. This book is a compilation of most the research in the cognitive neurosciences and is in depth and comprehensive as books get. Sure its size and weight may have caused some back strain when in my bookbag, but it was worth it. Check your library for this book before you pay out if you just need it for a paper or project, but if you want to do some learning like I did then buy it.

I am a junior in high school with what may be called an extended interest in neurology. This is the only book that my library had and, while I have no legitimate frame of reference, I learned quite a bit. One complaint however, there are a few typos in the earlier chapters. The typos don't have any real detraction from the material though.

I checked this book out from our library to see if it would meet my needs as an in-depth introduction and more to the neurosciences. I have a number of MIT press/Bradford books and expected quite a bit from this one. I was impressed with the breadth and range of topics and the quality of scholarship, but the incredible number of typos, particularly in the second section, left me steamed. Those poor authors who had the spelling of their names butchered in print have my sympathy. These typos include some in the diagrams, which lead to confusion. I expect a better quality of editing from a large professional university press. I bought Principles of Neuroscience (Kandel) instead. My advice would be to check out a copy of the Gazzaniga from your library and go over it to see if it is acceptable to you before you spend [...] on it.
