From the Back Cover:

The Biology of Mind is an engaging, multi-disciplinary tourof some of the most exciting areas in comtemporary brain andcognitive science. Appropriate for a wide range of students andgeneral readers, this text considers the evolution of mind and thetransition from primate to early hominid to modern intelligence. Italso surveys contemporary studies of brain structure and mechanismsthat underlie perception, emotions, language, memory, and learning.this new book provides an essential guide to understanding theorigins of the human brain and the mysteries of mind andconsciousness.

From the pre-publication reviews:
"This book is an unusual blend of material on the biology of mind:not just neuroscience, or just evolution or just philosophy ofmind, etc., but rather a balanced mix, a relatively quick and easyway to become oriented...this is just the kind of initial entrypoint someone outside the field will find useful. I know of nothingthat is like this."
Stephen M. Kosslyn, Professor of Psychology, HarvardUniversity

"This is a broad-ranging and quite successful attempt to providea coherent and sprightly view of mind and consciousness. The textis an entertaining as well as information-packed introduction tothe 'inner world,' energizing the enormous appeal the study of themind/brain has for so many—those who simply want to knowthemselves (the goal that made psychology for many years thelargest undergraduate major), as well as the prospective basicneuroscientist."
George Adelman, Editor, Encyclopedia ofNeuroscience
