A basic overview of neuroscience and computational theory is provided, followed by a study of some of the most recent and sophisticated modeling work in the context of relevant neurobiological research. Technical terms are clearly explained in the text, and definitions are provided in an extensive glossary. The appendix contains a précis of neurobiological techniques."--Jacket

Touching a nerve : the self as brain by Patricia Smith Churchland( Book )
8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What happens when we accept that everything we feel and think stems not from an immaterial spirit but from electrical and chemical activity in our brains? Churchland grounds the philosophy of mind in the essential ingredients of biology. She reflects with humor on how she came to harmonize science and philosophy, the mind and the brain, abstract ideals and daily life
The computer and the brain by John Von Neumann( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book represents the view of one of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century on the analogies between computing machines and the living human brain. John von Neumann concludes that the brain operates in part digitally, in part analogically, but uses a peculiar statistical language unlike that employed in the operation of man-made computers. This edition includes a new foreword by two eminent figures in the fields of philosophy, neuroscience, and consciousness, Paul M. Churchland and Patricia S. Churchland."--Jacket
Consciousness at the crossroads : conversations with the Dalai Lama on brainscience and Buddhism by Bstan-ʼdzin-rgya-mtsho( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Neurophilosophy and Alzheimer's disease by Yves Christen( Book )
8 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The relationship between body (or brain) and mind is still poorly understood. Alzheimer's disease could be a good model for the study of typical neurophilosophical problems such as the mind brain relationship and also, more particularly, as a means to understanding different aspects of human consciousness and thinking, since Alzheimer's disease presents a situation in which both modification of the cognitive faculties and organic changes, cellular and even molecular, may be observed simultaneously. The intention of the contributors of this volume was not to pronounce the last word on a debate which is certain to continue for a long time to come but to help introduce the neurophilosophical debate into an area of research where it is more often molecules that are manipulated rather than philosophical concepts

Evolved Morality by F. B. M. de Waal( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Morality is often defined in opposition to the natural "instincts," or as a tool to keep those instincts in check. New findings in neuroscience, social psychology, animal behaviour, and anthropology have brought us back to the original Darwinian position that moral behaviour is continuous with the social behavior of animals, and most likely evolved to enhance the cooperativeness of society. In this view, morality is part of human nature rather than its opposite. This interdisciplinary volume debates the origin and working of human morality within the context of science as well as religion and philosophy. Experts from widely different backgrounds speculate how morality may have evolved, how it develops in the child, and what science can tell us about its working and origin. They also discuss how to deal with the age-old facts-versus-values debate, also known as the naturalistic fallacy. The implications of this exchange are enormous, as they may transform cherished views on if and why we are the only moral species

Touching a nerve the self as brain by Patricia Smith Churchland( )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A trailblazing philosopher's exploration of the latest brain science-and its ethical and practical implications. What happens when we accept that everything we feel and think stems not from an immaterial spirit but from electrical and chemical activity in our brains? In this thought-provoking narrative-drawn from professional expertise as well as personal life experiences-trailblazing neurophilosopher Patricia S. Churchland grounds the philosophy of mind in the essential ingredients of biology. She reflects with humor on how she came to harmonize science and philosophy, the mind and the brain, abstract ideals and daily life. Offering lucid explanations of the neural workings that underlie identity, she reveals how the latest research into consciousness, memory, and free will can help us reexamine enduring philosophical, ethical, and spiritual questions: What shapes our personalities? How do we account for near-death experiences? How do we make decisions? And why do we feel empathy for others?
