Faculty from the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, Duke U., cover the major themes, developments, methods, and challenges for further research in the rapidly evolving field of cognitive neuroscience. In providing a basis for understanding higher human brain functioning, they discuss the principles of cognitive neuroscience in relation to sensory perception, motor behavior, attention, memory, emotion/social cognition, speech and language, executive control, and cognitive functions and consciousness. Chapters include flashcard activities for learning terminology, color illustrations, and further reading including key original papers. The text includes appended material on neural signaling, an extensive glossary, and access to a digital atlas and visual glossary of human neuroanatomy.
