Frontiers in Cognitive Neuroscience Book PDF summary

Frontiers in Cognitive Neuroscience is the first book of extensive readings in anexciting new field that is built on the assumption that "the mind is what the brain does," and thatseeks 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 toselect contributions that provide the interdisciplinary foundations of this emerging field, puttingthem into context, both historically and with regard to current issues.Fifty-five articles aregrouped in sections that cover attention, vision, auditory and somatosensory systems, memory, andhigher cortical functions. They range from Gazzaniga and Bogen's discussion of functional effects ofsectioning the cerebral commissure in man and Geschwind's classic study of the organization oflanguage in the brain, published in the 1960s, to contemporary investigations by Schiller andLogothetis on color-opponent and broad-band channels of the primate visual system and by Bekkers andStevens on presynaptic mechanisms for long-term potentiation in the hippocampus. The editors haveprovided both a general introduction and introductions to each of the five major sections.StephenKosslyn is Professor of Psychology at Harvard University. Richard Andersen is Professor ofNeuroscience and Director of the McDonnell-Pew Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at theMassachusetts Institute of Technology.

This unique hands-on lab manual in child development provides great ideas and resources for teaching research courses involving child subjects. It includes projects in psychomotor/perceptual, cognitive, and social development. Projects are preceded by background essays on the history of that topic, related research, theoretical issues, and controversies. Each project has hypotheses to test, detailed procedures to follow, all stimuli, individual and group data sheets, empty tables, suggested statistics, discussion questions, and an updated bibliography.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of cognitive enhancement, the use of different substances and actions (e.g., meditation, video game, smart drugs, food supplements, nutrition, brain stimulation, neurofeedback, physical exercise, music, or cognitive training) to enhance human perception, attention, memory, cognitive control, and action in healthy individuals. Chapters contain research on enhancing procedures and activities that will help to further develop enhancement based on individual needs and interests. Chapters also discuss the underlying mechanism of how these means influence

DOWNLOAD BOOKNaturalizing Phenomenology

This ambitious work aims to shed new light on the relations between Husserlian phenomenology and the present-day efforts toward a scientific theory of cognition—with its complex structure of disciplines, levels of explanation, and conflicting hypotheses. The book’s primary goal is not to present a new exegesis of Husserl’s writings, although it does not dismiss the importance of such interpretive and critical work. Rather, the contributors assess the extent to which the kind of phenomenological investigation Husserl initiated

DOWNLOAD BOOKIntroducing the Oscillations Based Paradigm

The book presents a conceptually novel oscillations based paradigm, the Oscillation-Based Multi-Agent System (OSIMAS), aimed at the modelling of agents and their systems as coherent, stylized, neurodynamic processes. This paradigm links emerging research domains via coherent neurodynamic oscillation based representations of the individual human mind and society (as a coherent collective mind) states. Thus, this multidisciplinary paradigm delivers an empirical and simulation research framework that provides a new way of modelling the complex dynamics of individual and collective mind states.

This edited volume focuses on the hypothesis that performativity is not a property confined to certain specific human skills, or to certain specific acts of language, nor an accidental enrichment due to creative intelligence. Instead, the executive and motor component of cognitive behavior should be considered an intrinsic part of the physiological functioning of the mind, and as endowed with self-generative power. Performativity, in this theoretical context, can be defined as a constituent component of cognitive processes. The material action

Binocular vision is achieved by five neurovisual systems originating in the retina but varying in their destination within the brain. Two systems have been widely studied: the retino-tectal or retino-collicular route, which subserves an expedient and raw estimate of the visual scene through the magnocellular pathway, and the retino-occipital or retino-cortical route, which allows slower but refined analysis of the visual scene through the parvocellular pathway. But there also exist further neurovisual systems: the retino-hypothalamic, retino-pretectal, and accessory optic systems,
