The cognitive neuropsychology of schizophrenia by Christopher D Frith ( Book )

Schizophrenic patients have bizarre experiences which reflect a disorder in the contents of consciousness. For example, patients hear voices talking about them or they are convinced that alien forces are controlling their actions. Their abnormal behaviour includes incoherence and lack of will. In this book an explanation of these baffling signs and symptoms is provided using the framework of cognitive neuropsychology.The cognitive abnormalities that underlie these signs and symptoms suggest impairment in a system which constructs and monitors representations of certain abstract (especially

The cognitive neuroscience of metacognition by Stephen M Fleming ( )
7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Metacognition is the capacity to reflect upon and evaluate cognition and behaviour.

By combining brain imaging, computational modeling, neuropsychology and insights from psychiatry, the present book offers a picture of the metacognitive functions of the brain.Chapters cover the definition and measurement of metacognition in humans and non-human animals, the computational underpinnings of metacognitive judgments the cognitive neuroscience of self-monitorin

Wie unser Gehirn die Welt erschafft by Christopher D Frith ( Book )
3 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in German and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ist die Welt real - oder lediglich ein Konstrukt unseres Gehirns? Und wer ist eigentlich "Ich"? In Ihrem Kopf gibt es eine erstaunliche Vorrichtung, die Ihnen jede Menge Arbeit erspart - und die darin effizienter ist als die modernsten High-Tech-Computer: Ihr Gehirn. Wie sehr all das, was wir wahrnehmen, ein von unserem Gehirn geschaffenes Modell der Welt ist, wird uns kaum je bewusst. Doch noch überraschender - und vielleicht beunruhigender - ist die Schlussfolgerung, dass auch das "Ich", das sich in die soziale Welt einfügt, ein Konstrukt unseres Gehirns ist. Indem das Gehirn es uns ermöglicht, eigene Vorstellungen mit anderen Menschen zu teilen, vermögen wir gemeinsam Größeres zu schaffen, als es einer von uns alleine könnte. Wie unser Gehirn dieses Kunststück vollbringt, beschreibt dieses Buch. Der britische Kognitionsforscher Chris Frith beschäftigt sich mit dem vielleicht größten Rätsel überhaupt, nämlich dem Entstehen und den Eigenschaften unserer Erlebniswelt - der einzigen Welt, die uns direkt zugänglich ist. Er behandelt dieses schwierige Thema in einer souveränen, sympathischen und sehr verständlichen Weise, immer nahe an den psychologischen und neurobiologischen Forschungsergebnissen, von denen einige bedeutende aus seinem Labor stammen. Er verzichtet dabei bewusst auf jeden bombastischen philosophischen Aufwand. Das macht das Buch unbedingt lesenswert. Gerhard Roth Frith gelingt das Kunststück, die enorme Bandbreite der kognitiven Neurowissenschaften nicht nur anhand vieler konkreter Beispiele darzustellen, sondern auch die Bedeutung ihrer Ergebnisse auszuloten ... eine Aufforderung, dem Augenschein zu misstrauen. Es gibt wenige Bücher, die diesen Appell ähnlich anschaulich und fundiert mit Leben füllen, gewürzt mit einer guten Portion Humor. Gehirn und Geist
