Fundamentals of Cognitive Neuroscience is a comprehensive and easy-to-follow guide to cognitive neuroscience. Winner of a 2013 Most Promising New Textbook Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association, this book was written by two leading experts in the field to be highly accessible to undergraduates with limited neuroscience training. It covers all aspects of the field―the neural framework, sight, sound, consciousness, learning/memory, problem solving, speech, executive control, emotions, socialization and development―in a student-friendly format with extensive pedagogy and ancillaries to aid both the student and professor.

This introductory text takes a unique thematic approach, guiding students along a clear path to understand the latest findings whether or not they have a background in neuroscience. It includes case studies and everyday examples designed to help students understand the more challenging aspects of the material. It is richly illustrated with carefully selected color graphics to enhance understanding. Enhanced pedagogy highlights key concepts for the student and aids in teaching. Chapter outlines, study questions, glossary, and image collection are also available on the student's companion website. Ancillary support saves instructors time and facilitates learning; test questions, image collection, and lecture slides are available on the instructor's manual website.

From the Back Cover:

Psychological and brain scientists can now observe the living brain when people perceive, act, learn, feel, speak, and socialize. A great deal of reliable evidence has crystallized in recent decades. The result is cognitive neuroscience. Practical applications are emerging in medicine, psychology, education, and even the arts.

This book is a beginner's guide based on Bernard J. Baars and Nicole M. Gage's upper-division textbook Cognition, Brain, and Consciousness: Introduction to Cognitive Neuroscience. Written by two leading experts in the field, this text takes a distinctive, commonsense approach to help newcomers learn the basics of cognitive neuroscience as easily as possible.

About the Author:

Dr. Baars is a former senior fellow at the Neurosciences Institute in La Jolla, California, and a worldwide leader in the study of cognitive architecture and consciousness. He cofounded both the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness and the Academic Press journal Consciousness & Cognition.

Dr. Gage is a researcher at the University of California, Irvine, and the director of UCI’s Cognitive Neuroscience of Language Laboratory. She actively teaches in the area of consciousness and cognition and is the coauthor, with Bernard Baars, of our highly successful graduate-level cognitive neuroscience textbook on which Fundamentals of Cognitive Neuroscience is based.
