"This new edition of Jamie Ward's best-selling textbook, is a clear and informative read. Within the text all the chapters have been restructured with up-to-date references, making this book an essential purchase for someone looking for an all-inclusive overview of cognitive neuroscience. ... [The book] is useful to students, tutors or those who just wish to read up on this area." - Samantha L. Heaton, assistant psychologist at Rampton Hospital, in The Psychologist "This book is the best introductory textbook I know. I teach with it myself and I recommend it to colleagues in other fields who want to understand the basic questions, methods and findings of cognitive neuroscience." - Martha J. Farah, Director, Center for Neuroscience & Society, University of Pennsylvania, USA "I thought the first edition was the best textbook I have come across on cognitive neuroscience. This second edition is even better." - Robert H. Logie, Professor of Human Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Edinburgh, UK "Ward presents all the essential topics in cognitive neuroscience in a compact, impeccably organized, well-referenced and newly colorful package. But where this text really excels is in engaging the student and stimulating critical thinking by consistently asking the student to think about the "why" and not just the "what." - Jennifer Mangels, Associate Professor, Baruch College, City University of New York, USA Praise for the 1st edition: "Jamie Ward has done a great service to the neuroscience community: he has written an easy to read, enjoyable introduction to cognitive neuroscience that will attract many students to the discipline. ... I will certainly use this book for my courses." - Professor Alfonso Caramazza, the Cognitive Neuropsychology Laboratory, Harvard University, USA "The Student's Guide To Cognitive Neuroscience is unique in that there are no comparable textbooks aimed at this level and it does an excellent job of providing a solid grounding in this broad field." - Charvy Narain, in Nature Neuroscience "Jamie Ward manages to explain complicated features of cognitive neuroscience by introducing examples, articles from the media, historical cameos and case studies to provide an engaging and challenging book. ... This is a seminal text that is all the more impressive for bringing cognitive neuroscience to life for subject students and non-experts alike." - Dr. Judith Whitmarsh, University of Wolverhampton, in ESCalate


Reflecting recent changes in the way cognition and the brain are studied, this book provides a comprehensive and student friendly guide to cognitive neuroscience. Following an introduction to neural structure and function, all the key methods and procedures of cognitive neuroscience are explained with a view to helping students understand how they can be used to shed light on the neural basis of cognition. The second part of the book goes on to present an up-to-date overview of the latest theories and findings in all the key topics in cognitive neuroscience, including: vision, attention, memory, speech and language, numeracy, executive function, and social and emotional behaviour. Throughout, case studies, newspaper reports and everyday examples are used to provide an easy way in to understanding the more challenging ideas that underpin the subject. In addition each chapter includes: summaries of key terms and points; example essay questions to aid exam preparation; recommended further reading; and feature boxes exploring interesting and popular questions and their implications for the subject.

Written in an engaging style by a leading researcher in the field, this book will be invaluable as a core text for undergraduate modules in cognitive neuroscience. It can also be used as a key text on courses in cognitive psychology, cognitive neuropsychology or brain and behaviour. Those embarking on research will find it an invaluable starting point and reference. We offer CD-ROM based resources free of charge to instructors who recommend "The Student's Guide to Cognitive Neuroscience" by Jamie Ward. These resources include: a chapter-by-chapter, illustrated slideshow lecture course; an innovative bank of Multiple Choice Questions, graded according to difficulty and which allow for confidence weighted answers; and comprehensive lecture planning advice tailored to different length courses.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent 5. April 2009
Von Dr. Lee D. Carlson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Mostly due to the experimental techniques that are now available to study brain activity, the field of cognitive neuroscience is exploding, generating great excitement not only among professional neuroscientists but also from those curious about advances in the field. New areas of research and new perspectives on ethics, legal philosophy, sociology, and artificial intelligence have been generated by the advances in cognitive neuroscience, and this entails that accurate documentation and tutorials be developed to detail these advances.

This book fills that need, and could be read not only by students who are entering the field of cognitive neuroscience but by those, who, like this reviewer, are very interested in the field. The small size of the book already dictates that much of it will read like a literature review, with pointers to many references, but the author gives enough detail to allow the reader to appreciate the subject matter. Readers who crave more in-depth coverage can consult the many references that are given in the book.

Everything about cognitive neuroscience is fascinating, and there are new surprises coming out of the laboratories on a daily basis. Some of the more recent ones, particularly those that make use of functional MRI and TMS are discussed in this book. The author also includes an historical introduction that puts the field in its proper context, and also serves to distinguish it from more speculative approaches that one finds in philosophy departments around the world. Particularly interesting because of its importance in artificial intelligence is the discussion in this introduction of domain specificity and modularity.

But the functions of the brain, whether they are localized or modularized, are characterized in cognitive neuroscience by studying individuals who show impairment of these functions. The author characterizes this strategy as being a compromise between that of (classical) neuro-psychology, which favors group studies, and cognitive neuro-psychology that favors single case studies. Typically it is lesions that cause impairments of cognitive processes, and it is quite surprising sometimes to learn to what degree these impairments are disentangled from other "nearby" brain processes. In this regard the author discusses `double dissociation' between cognitive/neural processes. Even more interesting because of its importance in artificial intelligence is the notion of `dual-task interference' wherein two tasks share the same cognitive processes. A better name for this might be the "entanglement" between two tasks, and it is the opinion of this reviewer that the study of the degree to which two tasks cannot be performed independently of one another is of utmost importance in understanding the brain as a computational machine.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good info about brain and cognition 9. Juli 2007
Von Sal Nallig - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is an accessible source for information in one of the hottest areas in science -- cognitive neuroscience. The book is not intended for experts (it won't give you any new ideas), nor for the reader who is not interested in putting forth a little effort. It is a student's guide and students study. But the effort is not great and the reward exceeds the effort if ou have any interest in the brain or the mind.

5.0 von 5 Sternen great introduction 24. Juni 2011
Von meh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
From a students perspective: this book is extremely easy to read and comprehend. The layout of the the chapters, and flow of information within them, makes the content easy to digest. Found some statements that weren't necessarily true... But what text book doesn't have these? For a robust yet painless introduction to cognition and the brain, I would recommend.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Simplistic and well formatted 31. Januar 2009
Von M. Ade - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is pretty straightforward and easy to read. Everything is laid out clearly and while it does not go into depth into the material; there are other more lengthy texts that you can refer to if necessary.

I really wish all my textbooks were like this.
