Wet Mind by Stephen Michael Kosslyn

Book Description

How do our brains allow us to recognize objects and locate them accurately in space, use mental imagery to remember yesterday's breakfast, read, understand speech, learn to dance, and recall a new telephone number? Recent breakthroughs in brain scanning and computing techniques have allowed researchers to plumb the secrets of the healthy brain's operation; simultaneously, much new information has been learned about the nature and causes of neuropsychological deficits in animals and humans following various sorts of brain damage in different locations. In this first comprehensive, integrated, and accessible overview of recent insights into how the brain gives rise to mental activity, the authors explain the fundamental concepts behind and the key discoveries that draw on neural network computer models, brain scans, and behavioral studies. Drawing on this analysis, the authors also present an intriguing theory of consciousness. In addition, this paperback edition contains an epilogue in which the authors discuss the latest research on emotion and cognition and present new information on working memory.

Cognitive Psychology by Stephen Michael Kosslyn Cognitive Psychology, Hardback (June 2006)

The study of cognition has progressed enormously. This book integrates information about the brain and neural processing into the standard curriculum in cognitive psychology. It also addresses the major findings, theories, and research which the field had produced.

Frontiers in Cognitive Neuroscience by Stephen Michael Kosslyn Frontiers in Cognitive Neuroscience, Paperback (April 1995)

This text provides students and researchers with a foundation for examining how brain function gives rise to mental activities such as perception, memory and language. It is grouped into sections that cover attention, vision, auditory and somatosensory systems, memory and higher cortical.

Image and Mind by Stephen Michael Kosslyn Image and Mind, Paperback (July 1986)

Kosslyn makes an impressive case for the view that images are critically involved in the life of the mind. In a series of ingenious experiments, he provides hard evidence that people can construct elaborate mental images, search them for specific information, and perform such other internal operations as mental rotation.
