Brain and Behavior: A Cognitive Neuroscience Perspective (PDF) addresses the main aims of cognitive neuroscience; seeking to explore the brain not only by its components but also by their functions. It emphasizes the principles; discoveries; and remaining question marks of modern cognitive neuroscience.
Brain and Behavior covers an extensive swath of territory critical for understanding the brain; from the basics of the nervous system; to sensory and motor systems; sleep; memory; language; motivation and emotions; social cognition; and brain disorders. In the whole narrative; the authors focus on the dynamically changing nature of the brain; through the mechanisms of neuroplasticity. Wherever possible; they refer to elements of neuroscience that are faced in everyday life. Key concepts and points are illustrated using case studies of rare but illuminating brain disorders. Brain and Behavior pulls together the best current knowledge about the brain while acknowledging present areas of ignorance and pointing students towards the most encouraging directions for future research.
