  1. New Approaches in Reasoning Research

    Reasoning research has long been associated with paper and pencil tasks in which peoples’ reasoning skills are judged against established normative conventions. However, there has been a recent revolution in the range of techniques, empirical methods and paradigms used to examine reasoning behavior. New Approaches in Reasoning Research brings to the fore these new pioneering research methods and empirical findings.

  2. A Case Study in Visual Agnosia Revisited: To see but not to see

    Visual agnosia is a rare but fascinating disorder of visual object recognition that can occur after a brain lesion. This book documents the case of John, who worked intensively with the authors for 26 years after acquiring visual agnosia following a stroke. It revisits John’s case over twenty years after it was originally described in the book To See But Not To See, in 1987. As in the previous book, the condition is illuminated by John and his wife, Iris, in their own words.

  3. Human Cognitive Neuropsychology (Classic Edition)

    First published in 1988, this seminal book represented an attempt to synthesize and systematize progress in the study of cognitive neuropsychology and therefore provides an important snapshot of the field at the time. This classic edition marks 25 years in print, and includes a brand new introduction written by the authors, Ellis and Young.

  4. Neuroscience of Prejudice and Intergroup Relations

    This volume provides the first integrated view on the specific drawbacks and benefits of each type of measure, illuminates how standard paradigms in research on prejudice and intergroup relations can be adapted for the use of neuroscientific methods, and illustrates how different methodologies can complement each other and be combined to advance current insights into the nature of prejudice.

  5. Expertise and Skill Acquisition: The Impact of William G. Chase

  9. The Neural Basis of Human Belief Systems

    Is the everyday understanding of belief susceptible to scientific investigation? Belief is one of the most commonly used, yet unexplained terms in neuroscience. Beliefs can be seen as forms of mental representations and one of the building blocks of our conscious thoughts.

    This book provides an interdisciplinary overview of what we currently know about the neural basis of human belief systems, and how different belief systems are implemented in the human brain. The chapters in this volume explain how the neural correlates of beliefs mediate a range of explicit and implicit behaviours ranging from moral decision making, to the practice of religion.

    The Neural Basis of Human Belief Systems will be of great interest to researchers in the fields of psychology, philosophy, psychiatry, and cognitive neuroscience.

  10. The Developing Mind, Second Edition

    Presenting pioneering research on early relationships and the developing brain, this bestselling book put the field of interpersonal neurobiology on the map for many tens of thousands of clinicians, researchers, and students. 

    Daniel J. Siegel traces the interplay of human and neural connections in early childhood, examining the implications for attachment, mental processes such as memory and emotion, and psychological well-being throughout life. The new edition incorporates expanded discussions of cutting-edge topics, including neuroplasticity, epigenetics, mindfulness, and the neural correlates of consciousness.
