Product description


From a review of the previous edition:

This book is a modern classic, whose impact has reverberated through neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy. Supported by a compelling combination of empirical evidence and theoretical synthesis, Milner and Goodale's framework has reoriented our understanding of the relations between perception, action, and consciousness. (David Chalmers, Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Centre for Consciousness, Australian National University, and author of 'The Conscious Mind'.)

About the Author

Professor Milner gained his first degree in Psychology, Philosophy and Physiology, at the University of Oxford in 1965, and went on to obtain a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology (Abnormal) from the University of London in 1966. He was awarded a PhD in Experimental Psychology from the University of London in 1971. He worked as a MRC Research Assistant with the late Dr George Ettlinger at the Institute of Psychiatry, London, between 1966 and 1970 before moving to the University of St Andrews. Here he held a number of positions, including Professor of Neuropsychology and Dean of the Faculty of Science, until he left in 2000 to take up his current position as Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Durham. Professor Milner has given numerous invited lectures, and has published 6 books and over 130 book chapters and refereed journal articles. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1992. Professor Goodale has published more than 150 chapters and research articles, and is a frequent invited speaker at international meetings. In addition to his research activities, he has been active in developing the graduate program in Neuroscience at Western, for which he was awarded the prestigious E.G. Pleva Award for Contributions to Teaching in 1994. Professor Goodale serves on the editorial board of a number of journals including Experimental Brain Research, Neuropsychologia, Debates in Neuroscience, and Advances in Cognitive Psychology. He is the past-President of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness. In 1999, Professor Goodale was awarded the D.O Hebb Award by the Canadian Society for Brain, Behaviour, and Cognitive Science in recognition of his distinguished scientific achievements. In 2001, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. In 2006, Professor Goodale was award tthe Hellmuth Prize for Achievement in Research.

I brought this as an ebook, knowing that the book is a useful reference and a worthwhile read for anyone in perception and action research. The kindle software works very well on my iPad, Macbook Pro and my Mac Pro, thus I have no problem recommending the book or the reading method.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 27 April 2014
By Gustavo Daniel Beláustegui - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not only he presents information of serious investigation but besides a solid criterion to approach the problems exposed out of an approach reduccionista. The Contributions are of great value for the investigation that I realize on the pictorial productions and the personality.
