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.
