Modeled on the classic Neuroscience Study Program volumes which helped define an evolving field, The Cognitive Neurosciences is a major new reference that documents and defines the emerging field of cognitive neuroscience. The ninety-two original contributions provide comprehensive coverage - from the molecular level right up to human conscious experience - of one of the most interesting areas of modern science, namely the relationship between the structural and physiological mechanisms of the brain/nervous system and the psychological reality of mind.Sections and section editors: Molecular and Cellular Plasticity, Ira Black.

Schacter. "An extremely valuable handbook. Not only is its scope adequate to the challenge of this rapidly growing young discipline, but the focus is clear: intelligible, up-to-date theories of mental processes are grounded in the latest findings of the brain sciences. The integration provided in this handbook lays a foundation for the next generation of cognitive neuroscientists." -- George A. Miller, James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor of Psychology Emeritus, Princeton University. "The Cognitive Neurosciences" is a wonderfully comprehensive and up-to-date collection of authoritative articles. I strongly recommend it to anyone who hopes to keep abreast with this fast-moving area of scientific enquiry--relating the brain and mind." -- Sir Roger Penrose, FRS, Rouse Ball, Professor of Mathematics, University of Oxford. "At last--a source book in Cognitive Neuroscience for our students! And for ourselves! This much needed book contains a thoughtful selection of reviews from all areas relevant to current research. [...] Michael Gazzaniga and his colleagues should be congratulated for an outstanding job." -- Eric R.
