About The Author

George R. Mangun

George R. Mangun

Dr. George R. Mangun is Professor of Psychology and Neurology in the Center for Mind and Brain at the University of California, Davis. Mangun received his Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego. He was the founding director of the Center for Mind and Brain, and also of the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at Duke University. In 1992, with Michael Gazzaniga and others, Dr. Mangun founded the Cognitive Neuroscience Society.

He serves as an associate editor for the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, and is Editor-in-Chief of the series The Neuroscience of Attention, published by OUP. He uses cognitive neuroscience tools in the study of brain attention mechanisms. George is also a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Association for Psychological Science.

Michael Gazzaniga

Michael Gazzaniga

Dr. Michael S. Gazzaniga is a very Distinguished Professor and Director of the Sage Center for the Study of the Mind at the University of California, Santa Barbara (USA). In his career, Gazzaniga has introduced thousands of students to psychology and cognitive neuroscience.

Each edition of this classic reference has proved to be a benchmark in the developing field of cognitive neuroscience. The Cognitive Neurosciences 5th edition (PDF) continues to chart new directions in the study of the biological underpinnings of complex cognitio ― the relationship between the physiological and structural mechanisms of the nervous system and the psychological reality of the brain. It offers entirely new material, reflecting recent advances in the field of neurosciences.

Many of the developments in cognitive neuroscience have been shaped by the introduction of novel methodologies and tools, and a new section is devoted to methods that promise to guide the field into the future ― from sophisticated models of causality in brain function to the application of network theory to massive data sets. Another new section treats society and neuroscience, considering some of the political and moral quandaries posed by current neuroscientific methods.

Other sections in this fifth edition describe, among other things, latest new research that draws on developmental imaging to study the changing structure and function of the brain over the lifespan; research that confirms the study of emotion and social cognition as a core area in cognitive neuroscience; progress in establishing increasingly precise models of memory; and new findings that cast doubt on the so-called neural correlates of consciousness.
