Review quote

"This book is very well written. It gives a nice overview of cognitive neuroscience, and has a novel approach in linking areas that are usually covered in isolation." - Dr Leun Otten, University College London, UK "The book takes a very interesting approach and I particularly like the way each chapter combines two elements - e.g. attention and memory, or perception and action. This makes it a very useful tool in encouraging students to see the clear links between topics." - Dr Alexander Easton, Durham University, UK
