By deactivating parts of the brain, and testing the cognitive deficits, it is possible to gain incredible insights into the functions of particular brain areas. 'Virtual lesions' provides a state of the art guide to the full range of reversible deactivation techniques available. With each chapter written by experts in their respective fields, and providing evidence of the practical applications of their methods, along with potential pitfalls, the book will serve as a valuable and practical guide for future experimentation within cognitive neuroscience.

Review:


'Virtual lesions' involve the temporary deactivation of a part of the brain, by means of a range of techniques that have been recently developed. Because these are reversible, and leave the neuronal structure unaffected, they provide a much more contollable, and rigorous way of testing subjects. 'Virtual lesions' provides a state of the art guide to the full range of reversible deactivation techniques available. With each chapter written by a leader in their field, and providing evidence of the practical applications of their methods, along with potential pitfalls, the book will serve as a valuable and practical guide to future experimentation within cognitive neuroscience.


"This is a compilation of ideas on the topic of virtual lesions in the nervous system. The visual aspect of the book is very attractive and demonstrates its purpose at first glance. . . Twenty-six authors contribute 14 chapters, which are divided into two sections. The first one addresses the understanding of particular neuronal circuits based on selective virtual lesions in the brain. The second uses the concepts illuminated in the first section to apply to possible animal models of research. Throughout the book, there is a consistent presentation of illustrations of excellent quality, quality writing, and updated references. . .This is an important book for neuroscience laboratories and for libraries in those neurology departments where a progressive research strategy is the norm."--Doody's
