This volume reviews the mechanisms underlying psychology and behavior in animals and humans, and examines the field comprehensively from a physiological standpoint. After an introductory chapter that briefly traces the history of neuroscientific thought and describes its social implications, 21 substantive essays survey such topics as learning and memory in nonmammalian and simple systems, mechanisms of emotion and attention, mechanisms of perception, and human disease and higher brain function. This work describes a vast portion of the recent extraordinary advances in understanding the physiology of mammalian behavior and the mechanisms by which disease or damage in the human brain affects the highest intellectual and behavioral faculties.
