Offering an account of the role of the cerebral cortex in perception, this work explores the field of perceptual neuroscience. It includes phylogenetic, comparative and neuroanatomical studies of the neocortex, studies of the large-scale organization of the neocortex, of neuronal histogenesis and the specification of cortical areas, of synaptic transmission between neurons in cortical microcircuits and of rhythmicity and synchronization in neocortical networks and inquiries into the binding problem.
