Viewing the human brain as "the most complex and powerful computer known," with a memory capacity and computational power exceeding the largest mainframe systems, Professor Baron sets the groundwork for understanding the computational structure and organization of the human brain. He provides the introductory framework necessary for this new and growing field of investigation and he discusses human vision, mental imagery, sensory-motor functions, audition, affect and behavior.

Using practical examples and case studies the author examines some of the experimental and investigative teaching methods which are intended to support the 'specialist approach' in the teaching of primary science.Review:
...a good introduction to the brain's computational structure. It presents the brain in an excellent neurological perspective...well worth your time to read it carefully...an excellent presentation of cognition and language systems as well as the psychological structure of the nervous systems.
—AI SIG Newsletter
I recommend it for all scientists who want a good introduction to how the brain might be organized for computer-like information processing.
