excellent ... intriguing. (Joe Sinclair, New Nurturing Potential)
...the book is well written, well organized, and up to date. Copious figures and illustratons demonstrate learning points and many are in high quality color...This is a comprehensive and informative book on attention that could serve well as a reference for scholars or as reading material in a graduate level class. (Doody's Notes)
About the Author
Anna Christina (Kia) Nobre is Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Oxford, where she directs the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity and heads the Brain & Cognition Laboratory. She is Adjunct Professor at Northwestern University. Nobre received her Ph.D. (1993) and did postdoctoral research at Yale University with Gregory McCarthy, before moving to Harvard Medical School as Instructor to work with M-Marsel Mesulam. Her research using intracranial and non-invasive electrophysiological recordings made seminal contributions to the understanding of neural systems for word recognition and attention in the human brain. Her current research uses a multi-methodological approach to look at how perception and cognition are modulated according to task goals, expectations, and memories; and to understand how these dynamic regulatory mechanisms are affected by ageing, psychiatric conditions, and neurodegenerative disorders Sabine Kastner is Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology at Princeton University, where she heads the Neuroscience of Attention and Perception Laboratory in the Princeton Neuroscience Institute and Department of Psychology, and serves as the Scientific Director of Princeton's neuroimaging facility. She received M.D. (1993) and Ph.D. degrees (1994) and performed postdoctoral studies at NIH (1996-2000) with Leslie Ungerleider and Bob Desimone. Her functional brain imaging studies provided groundbreaking insights into visual perceptual and cognitive processes in the human brain. Kastner uses a translational approach that combines neuroimaging and electrophysiology to study the neural basis of visual perception, attention, and awareness in healthy humans, patients with brain lesions and animal models. Kastner's contributions to the field of cognitive neuroscience were recognized with the Young Investigator Award from the Cognitive Neuroscience Society in 2005
