The Cognitive Brain

MIT Press (1991)
Abstract
This monograph explains in terms of specified neuronal brain mechanisms and systems, how the human brain does its cognitive work. It elucidates functions such as declarative and episodic learning, imagery, spatial representation, object recognition, semantic processing, narrative comprehension, planning, and motivation. Neurophysiological, psychological, and clinical findings are presented in support of the theoretical model, and a variety of computer simulation tests demonstrate its competence.
