About the Authors
  • Neuroscience is progressing so rapidly that even expressions such as 'by leaps and bounds' fail to capture the pace of its growth. Questions that once were thought to be unanswerable - perhaps even unaskable - have been both asked and answered, and questions once unthinkable, are routine. Topics in Integrative Neuroscience has singled out four of the most important problems in neuroscience: higher order perception; language; memory systems; and sensory processes. The volume presents original contributions by many of the leading researchers in those fields, and with an initial chapter covering neuroethics. It is impossible to capture fully the sweep of discoveries that emerged from the 'Decade of the Brain' within the covers of a single volume. It is possible, however, to provide a sample, both in recognition of what has been accomplished and as a harbinger of what is surely to come.

    • Tackles the key questions underlying the neuroscience of cognition
    • Chapters authored by leading researchers
    • Sections are preceded by an overview outlining the contributions of each chapter and how it fits in

    'There are very interesting, and at times complex, reviews of studies of the neural underpinnings of behaviour. The several chapters that integrate behavioural and neuroimaging studies are also a strong component of this volume.' Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society
