Product Description


"...a wonderful and extensive collection of insights into most aspects of human brain function that have been investigated with functional neuroimaging. Human Brain Function provides a framework for students and investigators on which to build future studies of human brain function at every level of the systems."
--Argye E. Hillis in ANNALS OF NEUROLOGY (August 2005, Vol. 58, No. 2)

"Human Brain Function reflects the contributions of a network of laboratories, many in Europe, centered on the Functional Imaging Laboratory of the University College London.This gives the volume a great deal of coherence, . for an authoritative, state-of-the-art summary of cognitive neuroscience, I do not know a better book. I highly recommend it to all students, scientists and lay persons interested in the field."

Just as there are a host of visual areas-defined loosely as areas with visual inputs (Felleman and van Essen, 1990)-so are there many motor areas - defined loosely as regions with projections to the premotor and motor areas. Read the first page

A Uniquely Broad Synthesis 1 April 2009
By Quentin Regestein - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This output of a single laboratory group puts together neuroscientific topics across a span of fields from epistemology and mathematics through psychology and clinical psychiatry. The first half is a series of discussions on what brain systems do; the second half discusses methods by which functional magnetic imaging adduces intelligible information. The text departs from the authors' experimental observations, interpretations and interests to organize a massive amount of knowledge about the shapes and functions of brain systems as well as how we think about and image them. The text is profusely amplified by graphed data, brain images, concept-illustrating cartoons and bibliographic references. The congenial, personal style keeps this reader riveted to the text. The 2nd edition, which appeared a decade after the first, adds highly salient issues that are hard to succinctly discuss, such as consciousness, personal identity and free will. This will probably be the last essay to put so much into a single volume. Despite the authors' ritual apology that textbooks in fast-developing fields are obsolete on their publishing date, this key reference book will be cherished by future readers excited by brain science and its implications.
