Information about perception and memory is accumulating rapidly in both basic and clinical neuroscience, and this progress has been made using a variety of approaches while drawing jointly on the traditions of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropsychology. This volume presents the work of over 40 eminent scientists from around the world, their research includes such core issues as the perception of form, perception of motion, memory and the limbic system, the neocortex, andneural plasticity. The breadth of coverage of this volume in conjunction with its extensive studies of nonhuman primates makes this book a necessary reference for those interested in current perspectives on brain mechanisms of perception and memory. Neuroscientists, neuropsychologists, cognitive andphysiological psychologists will find this authoritative, state-of-the-art review important and informative more
