Brain, Perception, Memory: Advances in Cognitive Neuroscience

Johan J. Bolhuis


Cognitive neuroscience is a growth area in psychology and neuroscience, with insights into the brain mechanisms of cognitive abilities being gained from studies of both animals and humans. This book brings together contributors to provide an overview of knowledge of the essential neural mechanisms of perception, learning, and memory. The book describes advances in cognitive neuroscience and will be of interest to advanced students and researchers in cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and animal behaviour.

Keywords: cognitive neuroscience, brain mechanisms, cognitive abilities, neural mechanisms, perception, learning, memory, cognitive psychology, animal behaviour
