Review:

Each essay is superb in form and scholarship.... An important book that should be read by all interested in the topic.

Choice (Endorsement)

The Mindful Brain is a proposal by two eminent biological scientists for a mechanism whereby mind becomes manifest from the operations of brain tissue. The proposal is detailed and in many respects sophisticated. 'Mountcastle, dean of American neurophysiologists, presents the case for a modular structure of the cerebral cortex....' Edelman, a Nobel laureate, gives mathematical form to the proposed mechanism by applying to the functioning of the brain the theory of selection which he so successfully applied to immunological processes.

Karl H. Pribram, Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease (Endorsement)
