Cognitive neuroscience is a rich and complex discipline, some 35 years after the term was coined. Given the great expanse of the field, an inclusive and authoritative resource such as this handbook is needed for examining the current state-of-the-science in cognitive neuroscience. Spread across two volumes, the 59 chapters included in this handbook systemically survey all aspects of cognitive neuroscience, spanning perception, attention, memory, language, emotion, self and social cognition, higher cognitive functions, and clinical applications. Additional chapters cover topics ranging from the use of top-down cognitive processes in visual perception to the representation and recognition of objects and spatial relations; attention and its relationship to action as well as visual motor control; language and related core abilities including semantics, speech perception and production, the distinction between linguistic competence and performance, and the capacity for written language. Special coverage is also given to chapters describing the psychopharmacology of cognition, the theory of mind, the neuroscience underlying the regulation of emotion, and neuropsychological and neuroimaging evidence that supports the special status of self-knowledge in memory. This handbook provides a comprehensive compendium of research on cognitive neuroscience that will be widely accessible to students, researchers, and professionals working in this exciting and growing field.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The material is high quality and current with references as recent as 2013. There are a multitude of sharp illustrations and figures, many of which are in color. Graphs, figures, tables, gross anatomic pictures, and frequent functional neuroimaging results, along with pictures of task settings and experimental apparatus configuration, help illustrate experimental design. The inclusion of a section on clinical applications provides a useful bridge between neuroscience studies and real-world applications for understanding and treating patients with brain dysfunction in a few conditions. Although this is a cumbersome two-volume set, it is comprehensive in its coverage of foundational and cutting-edge cognitive neuroscience topics with high quality visual aids, accurate information, and real-world applications throughout. 5 Stars!" --Christopher J Graver, Doody's Health Science Book Review


"Readers of the Handbook of Cognitive Neuroscience will be impressed with the maturity that the field has reached in its theoretical formulations and its ability to test hypotheses. The authors show not only the relevant discoveries from neuroscience, but how the data
obtained have advanced theories in cognitive psychology. The Handbook of Cognitive Neuroscience does more than address specific neural processes that are related to cognition. It also provides an excellent review of the current state of the literature in cognitive psychology to set the stage for the discussion of those brain events.The format of the handbook is highly effective for experienced researchers, graduate students, and upper-level undergraduates who are looking for an introduction to the current state of the field." --Douglas A. Weldon, PsycCRITIQUES
