Cognition, Brain, and Consciousness, Second Edition, provides students and readers with an overview of the study of the human brain and its cognitive development.

It discusses brain molecules and their primary function, which is to help carry brain signals to and from the different parts of the human body. These molecules are also essential for understanding language, learning, perception, thinking, and other cognitive functions of our brain. The book also presents the tools that can be used to view the human brain through brain imaging or recording.

New to this edition are Frontiers in Cognitive Neuroscience text boxes, each one focusing on a leading researcher and their topic of expertise. There is a new chapter on Genes and Molecules of Cognition; all other chapters have been thoroughly revised, based on the most recent discoveries.

This text is designed for undergraduate and graduate students in Psychology, Neuroscience, and related disciplines in which cognitive neuroscience is taught.

  • New edition of a very successful textbook
  • Completely revised to reflect new advances, and feedback from adopters and students
  • Includes a new chapter on Genes and Molecules of Cognition
  • Student Solutions available at http://www.baars-gage.com/

For Teachers:

  • Rapid adoption and course preparation: A wide array of instructor support materials are available online including PowerPoint lecture slides, a test bank with answers, and eFlashcords on key concepts for each chapter.
  • A textbook with an easy-to-understand thematic approach: in a way that is clear for students from a variety of academic backgrounds, the text introduces concepts such as working memory, selective attention, and social cognition.
  • A step-by-step guide for introducing students to brain anatomy: color graphics have been carefully selected to illustrate all points and the research explained. Beautifully clear artist's drawings are used to 'build a brain' from top to bottom, simplifying the layout of the brain.

For students:

  • An easy-to-read, complete introduction to mind-brain science: all chapters begin from mind-brain functions and build a coherent picture of their brain basis. A single, widely accepted functional framework is used to capture the major phenomena.
  • Learning Aids include a student support site with study guides and exercises, a new Mini-Atlas of the Brain and a full Glossary of technical terms and their definitions.
  • Richly illustrated with hundreds of carefully selected color graphics to enhance understanding.

From the Back Cover:

Written by two leading experts in the field, this fully updated textbook takes a unique approach to introducing concepts of cognitive neurosciences. Many educational fields now require a basic understanding of cognitive neuroscience but other textbooks on the market are written for biology audiences, rather than for psychology and related majors. This text takes a thematic approach that is clear and understandable to those with or without a background in biology or neuroscience. New to this edition are Frontiers in Cognitive Neuroscience text boxes; each one focuses on a leading researcher and their topic of expertise. There is a new chapter on Genes and Molecules of Cognition, and all other chapters have been thoroughly revised, based on the most recent discoveries. New material has been added on the latest advances in brain imaging.

For teachers:

  • A new Mini-Atlas of the Brain provides the instructor with a simplified way to introduce the topographical features of brain anatomy and the basic terms that are used in navigating around the brain
  • Rapid adoption and course preparation: the instructor support website provides a wide array of teaching materials, so that once adopted instructors can quickly and easily be ready for class:

    • PowerPoint lecture slides for each chapter, including hyperlinks to relevant websites and other supporting materials
    • A test bank with multiple choice and short answer questions
    • Flashcards on key concepts for each chapter for use in lectures or as student study guides
    • Links to a wealth of related multimedia information and websites

For students:

  • Beautiful brain figures and well-articulated legends: Illustrated in full color throughout, and including figures from contemporary journal publications presented with simplified legends so that students may grasp the complex results and theoretical interpretations quickly and easily

  • An easy-to-read and complete introduction to mind-brain science: All chapters begin from easy-to-understand mind-brain functions, and build a coherent picture of their brain basis across chapters
  • A full Glossary of technical terms and their definitions
  • A student companion website with additional study guides, questions, and exercises
