Now in its fifth edition, this accessible and comprehensive text highlights the most important theoretical, conceptual and methodological issues in cognitive neuroscience. Written by two experienced researchers who excel at teaching, the consistent narrative ensures that concepts are linked across chapters, and the careful selection of topics enables readers to grasp the big picture without getting distracted by details. Clinical applications such as developmental disorders, brain injuries and dementias are highlighted. In addition, the analogies and examples, opening case studies, and 'In Focus' boxes both engage and demonstrate the relevance of the material to real-world concerns. Revised for even greater clarity, the fifth edition features new and updated artwork, 'Key Questions' to review concepts, and 'Thought Questions' which develop the critical thinking skills needed to evaluate future developments in this fast-moving field. An expanded set of online resources is also available.

  • Mind, Brain, and Language

    Marie T Banich, Molly MacK

    Much of the groundbreaking work in many fields is now occurring at the intersection of traditional academic disciplines. This development is well demonstrated in this important and unique volume, which offers a multidisciplinary view of current fi...

  • Generalization of Knowledge

    Marie T Banich, Donna Caccamise

    While the notion of generalization fits prominently into cognitive theories of learning, there is surprisingly little research literature that takes an overview of the issue from a broad multifaceted perspective. This volume remedies this by takin...

Recensioner i media

'This is a wonderfully engaging book with case studies to tease reader interest, a logical progression of neuroscientific topics to steadily build the reader's knowledge base, and effective questions and summaries to facilitate learning of the complex, yet accessible, material.I highly recommend this book!' BJ Casey, Barnard College, Columbia University

'Banich and Compton captivate their audience with interesting case studies, compelling examples, and beautiful figures. Instructor and student resources also promote retention using empirically based learning principles. A 'must-read' for those eager to learn more about mind and brain!' Jessica Andrews-Hanna, University of Arizona

'The revised and updated version of this textbook nicely presents a comprehensive treatment of key topics in cognitive neuroscience in an easy-to-read and thought-provoking approach. It should be a useful resource to university students interested in learning about the brain and human cognition.' Marcelo Salvador Caetano, Federal University of ABC

'Banich and Compton explore topics that reflect the scope of the field as well as areas of interest to students. They examine both function and dysfunction, along with practical applications, providing a fuller picture of the brain's role in human cognition, behavior, and emotion.' Chris Koch, George Fox University

Övrig information

Marie T. Banich uses brain imaging techniques to understand the neural systems that enable us to direct actions and thoughts in a goal-oriented manner, often referred to as executive function. Her research findings have been published in leading journals, including Science. Among her professional experiences, Prof. Banich has been a member of the MacArthur Foundation on Adolescent Development and Juvenile Justice, a Fulbright Senior Scholar in Verona, Italy, and a recipient of a James Cattell sabbatical award. Currently she serves as the co-Principal Investigator for Colorado site of the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development study, an unprecedented ten-year longitudinal study that uses neuroimaging to provide an unrivaled window on development of the adolescent brain and its influences on cognitive and emotional development. Rebecca J. Compton is Professor of Psychology and director of the Neuroscience program at Haverford College, a selective liberal arts college where she has taught since 1999. Her research uses EEG and eye-tracking methods to explore the neural basis of self-regulation, including executive functions, attention, mind-wandering, and emotion regulation. Professor Compton has received grants from the NSF and NIH for mentored research with undergraduates and is the recipient of the Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching. She is a participating member in the PURSUE group, a collaborative group of faculty developing open-source teaching and lab materials for undergraduate courses in cognitive psychophysiology.
