This volume is designed to introduce students to cognitive neuroscience, an emerging and exciting discipline whose goal is to understand the brain bases of cognitive function. This book will provide such an introduction by presenting key readings written by leaders in the field. Because cognitive neuroscience is an inherently multi-disciplinary field that draws from neuropsychology, cognitive science, neurophysiology, and computer science, the first section of the reader will introduce students to the multi-faceted methods currently being used in the field. Background readings will introduce students to single-cell recordings, neuropsychological studies, brain mapping and computational modeling. The book will then emphasize key conceptual and empirical work in six cognitive domains: object recognition, face processing, language, attention, long-term memory, and working memory. For each of these six cognitive domains, there will be a representative article for each of the four methods thatdemonstrate their application to the critical issues in cognitive neuroscience. Each section will include an introductory essay providing a conceptual framework and historical background that will provide the student with an overview for that portion of the book. In addition, each article will be preceded by a short piece that will direct the student to the essential conceptual issues being addressed in the article.
