Product description

Review

"Kosslyn is one of the world’s great cognitive neuroscientists of the late 20th and early 21st century." (Steven Pinker, bestselling author of The Language Instinct)

"An exciting new way to think about our brains, and ourselves. Original, insightful, and a sweet read to boot." (Daniel Gilbert, Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, author of the international best seller Stumbling on Happiness)

"Kosslyn and Miller have written a lively, informative, and easily assimilated summary of several important principles of brain function for the general reader who does not have the time or background to follow the complexities of neuroscience research but would like a scaffolding on which to place the new facts that dominate each day's headlines." (Jerome Kagan, emeritus professor of psychology, Harvard University)

“A bold new theory, with intriguing practical implications, formulated by one of America’s most original psychologists.” (Howard Gardner, co-author of The App Generation)

“An invigorating thought-experiment on reassembling the brain’s dynamic parts.” (Publishers Weekly)

"Stephen Kosslyn has long been one of the world’s leading cognitive psychologists. In his new book, along with Wayne Miller, he proposes a novel synthesis for thinking about the modes of cognition and the neurobiology that underlies it. This is an extremely stimulating book and a wonderfully readable one as well, even containing useful information for how each of us can make sense of our own ways of thinking.” (Robert M. Sapolsky, Stanford University Professor of Neurology and MacArthur Fellow)

About the Author

Stephen M. Kosslyn, PhD, is director of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University, where he is also a professor of psychology.
