Principles of Cognitive Neuroscience, Hardback


Written by seven leading authors, Principles of Cognitive Neuroscience covers the growing subject of cognitive neuroscience and makes clear the many challenges that remain to be solved.

Now, in this second edition, the text has been streamlined to 15 chapters for ease of reference.

The condensation makes the topics covered easier to assimilate, and better suited to presentation in a single-semester course.

Each chapter has been updated to address the latest developments in the field, including expanded coverage of genetics, evolution, and neural development.

Introductory Boxes in each chapter take up an especially interesting issue to better capture readers' attention.

An appendix reviews the major features of human neuroanatomy and basic aspects of neural signaling.

As before, this edition includes an extensive glossary of key terms. And, with every new copy of the book, we offer a fully upgraded version of Sylvius 4 Online, which includes an interactive tutorial on human neuroanatomy as well as a magnetic resonance imaging atlas of the human brain.
