Handbook of developmental cognitive neuroscience ( )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The cognitive neurosciences by Michael S Gazzaniga ( )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation Each edition of this classic reference has proved to be a benchmark in the developing field of cognitive neuroscience. The third edition of The Cognitive Neurosciences continues to chart new directions in the study of the biologic underpinnings of complex cognition -- the relationship between the structural and physiological mechanisms of the nervous system and the psychological reality of the mind. Every chapter is new and each section has new participants. Features of the third edition include research that maps biological changes directly to cognitive changes; a new and integrated view of sensory systems and perceptual processes; the presentation of new developments in plasticity; recent research on the cognitive neuroscience of false memory, which reveals the constructive nature of memory retrieval; and new topics in the neuroscientific study of emotion, including the "social brain." The new final section, "Perspectives and New Directions," discusses a wide variety of topics that point toward the future of this vibrant and exciting field
The MIT encyclopedia of communication disorders by Raymond D Kent ( )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The MIT Encyclopedia of Communication Disorders will become the standard reference in this field for both research and clinical use. It offers almost 200 detailed entries, covering the entire range of communication and speech disorders in children and adults, from basic science to clinical diagnosis." "MITECD is divided into four sections that reflect the standard categories within the field (also known as speech-language pathology and audiology): Voice, Speech, Language, and Hearing. Within each category, entries are organized into three subsections: Basic Science, Disorders, and Clinical Management. Basic Science includes relevant information on normal anatomy and physiology, physics, psychology and psychophysics, and linguistics; this provides a scientific foundation for entries in the other subsections. The entries that appear under Disorders offer information on the definition and characterization of specific disorders, and tools for their identification and assessment. The Clinical Management subsection describes appropriate interventions, including behavioral, pharmacological, surgical, and prosthetic."--BOOK JACKET
The handbook of multisensory processes ( )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Research is suggesting that rather than our senses being independent, perception is fundamentally a multisensory experience. This handbook reviews the evidence & explores the theory of broad underlying principles that govern sensory interactions, regardless of the specific senses involved
The handbook of brain theory and neural networks ( )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This second edition presents the enormous progress made in recent years in the many subfields related to the two great questions: how does the brain work? and, How can we build intelligent machines? This second edition greatly increases the coverage of models of fundamental neurobiology, cognitive neuroscience, and neural network approaches to language. (Midwest)
What is thought? by Eric B Baum ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Toward a computational explanation of thought: an argument that underlying mind is a complex but compact program that corresponds to the underlying complex structure of the world
What counts focus and quantification by Elena Herburger ( )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The effects of focus on interpretation are considered in this analysis of the interaction of syntax and semantics. The book investigates how focus affects the pragmatics and truth conditions of a sentence by arranging its quantificational structure
Plasticity of development ( )

How language comes to children : from birth to two years by Bénédicte de Boysson-Bardies ( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book, psycholinguist Benedicte de Boysson-Bardies presents a broad picture of language development, from fetal development to the toddler years, and examines a wide range of puzzling questions: How do newborns recognize elements of speech? How do they distinguish them from nonspeech sounds? How do they organize and analyze them? How do they ultimately come to understand and reproduce these sounds? Finally, how does the ability to communicate through language emerge in children? Boysson-Bardies also addresses questions of particular interest to parents, such as whether one should speak to children in a special way to facilitate language learning and whether there is cause to worry when a twenty-month-old child does not yet speak. Although the author provides a clear summary of the current state of language acquisition theory, the special appeal of the book lies in her research and "dialogue" with her many young subjects."--BOOK JACKET
Psychosemantics the problem of meaning in the philosophy of mind by Jerry A Fodor ( Book )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Psychosemantics explores the relation between commonsense psychological theories and problems that are central to semantics and the philosophy of language. Building on and extending Fodor's earlier work it puts folk psychology on firm theoretical ground and rebuts externalist, holist, and naturalist threats to its position. --From publisher's description
A study of concepts by Christopher Peacocke ( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Roots of social sensibility and neural function by Jay Schulkin ( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book Jay Schulkin explores social reason from philosophical, psychological, and cognitive neuroscientific perspectives. He argues for a pragmatist approach, in which the role of experience - that is, interaction with others - is central to any consideration of action in the social world. Unlike some philosophers of mind, Jay Schulkin considers social reason to be a real feature of the information processing system in the brain, in addition to a useful cognitive tool in predicting behavior. Throughout the book, he incorporates neurobiological evidence for a domain-specific system for social cognition." "Topics covered include the centrality of intentional attribution to social cognition, the rise of cognitive science in the twentieth century, the functional arguments for the role of experience, intentional understanding in nonhuman primates, theory of mind and natural kinds in children, autism as a disorder of theory of mind, and the integration of emotions into theory of mind."--BOOK JACKET
Intelligent behavior in animals and robots by David McFarland ( )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sites of vision the discursive construction of sight in the history of philosophy by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin ( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The central role of vision in relation to philosophy is evident in the vocabulary of the discipline - in words such as "speculation," "observation," "insight," and "reflection"; in metaphors such as "mirroring," "perspective," and "point of view"; and in methodological concepts such as "reflective detachment" and "representation." Because the history of vision is so pervasively reflected in the history of philosophy, it is possible for both vision and thought to achieve a greater awareness of their genealogy through the history of philosophy. The fourteen contributors to Sites of Vision explore the hypothesis that the nature of visual perception about which philosophers talk must be explicitly recognized as a discursive construction, indeed a historical construction, in philosophical discourse
The big book of concepts by Gregory L Murphy ( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Representations, targets, and attitudes by Robert Cummins ( )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cummins's theory of error is based on the teleological idea of a "target," an intentional concept but one that differs importantly from that of an ordinary intentional object. Using this notion he offers a schematic theory of representation and an account of propositional attitudes that takes exception with some popular positions, such as conceptual role semantics, Fodor's representational theory of the mind, and Putnam's twin-earth examples
The dependencies of objects by Esther Torrego ( )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Realistic rationalism by Jerrold J Katz ( )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Realistic Rationalism, Jerrold J. Katz develops a new philosophical position integrating realism and rationalism. Realism here means that the objects of study in mathematics and other formal sciences are abstract; rationalism means that our knowledge of them is not empirical. Katz uses this position to meet the principal challenges to realism. In exposing the flaws in criticisms of the antirealists, he shows that realists can explain knowledge of abstract objects without supposing we have causal contact with them, that numbers are determinate objects, and that the standard counterexamples to the abstract/concrete distinction have no force. Generalizing the account of knowledge used to meet the challenges to realism, he develops a rationalist and nonnaturalist account of philosophical knowledge and argues that it is preferable to contemporary naturalist and empiricist accounts. The book illuminates a wide range of philosophical issues, including the nature of necessity, the distinction between the formal and natural sciences, empiricist holism, the structure of ontology, and philosophical skepticism. Philosophers will use this fresh treatment of realism and rationalism as a starting point for new directions in their own research
