Seven views of mind by Lise Wallach( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"This book examines seven different answers to the question, "What are we talking about when we talk about the mind?" It begins by considering the dualistic view, frequently taken for granted by students, that words like "belief," "anger," and "jealousy" refer to a realm quite distinct from the physical world, and notes the difficulties associated with this view as well as why many find it compelling. The book then describes six further major views of mind alternative to dualism that have been developed by psychologists, philosophers, and neuroscientists: Some claim that such words are just about behavior. Some claim that such words are theoretical constructs, like "quarks" in physics. Some identify the mind with the brain. Or with a kind of program in the brain, like the software in a computer. Some think there is nothing to which such words refer. Some think mental talk reflects nothing but convention"--
Language and action in cognitive neuroscience by Yann Coello( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"This book collates the most up to date evidence from behavioural, brain imagery and stroke-patient studies, to discuss the ways in which cognitive and neural processes are responsible for language processing. Divided into six sections, the edited volume presents arguments from evolutionist, developmental, behavioural and neurobiological perspectives, all of which point to a strong relationship between action and language. It provides a scientific basis for a new theoretical approach to language evolution, acquisition and use in humans, whilst at the same time assessing current debates on motor system's contribution to the emergence of language acquisition, perception and production. The chapters have been written by internationally acknowledged researchers from a variety of disciplines, and as such this book will be of great interest to academics, students and professionals in the areas of cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, neuroscience, psycholinguistics and philosophy"--

It will be of interest to advanced students in neuropsychology, neuroscience and neurology, to clinicians and all researchers and scholars interested in the workings of the human brain."--BOOK JACKET
Infant EEG and event-related potentials by Michelle De Haan( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Infancy is a time of rapid growth, when brain plasticity is at a maximum. Event-related potentials (ERPs) are one of the few methods that can easily and safely be used to study this process, and have led to exciting discoveries about human brain functioning and the neural basis of cognition. Over recent years, there has been a massive rise in the level of interest in ERPs and this book considers the advantages which they offer to researchers and clinicians. In particular, it looks at the benefits of this form of neuroimaging as a non-invasive tool for detecting impairments in
Social metacognition by Pablo Briñol( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Metacognition refers to thinking about our own thinking. It has assumed a prominent role in social judgment because our thoughts about our thoughts can magnify, attenuate, or even reverse the impact of primary cognition. Metacognitive thoughts can also produce changes in thought, feeling, and behavior, and thus are critical for a complete understanding of human social behavior. The present volume presents the most important and advanced research areas in social psychology where the role of metacognition has been studied. Specifically, the chapters of this book are orga
Moves in mind : the psychology of board games by Fernand Gobet( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Board games have long fascinated as mirrors of intelligence, skill, cunning, and wisdom. While board games have been the topic of many scientific studies, and have been studied for more than a century by psychologists, there was until now no single volume summarizing psychological research into board games. This book, which is the first systematic study of psychology and board games, covers topics such as perception, memory, problem solving and decision making, development, intelligence, emotions, motivation, education, and neuroscience. It also briefly summarizes current research in artificial intelligence aiming at developing computers playing board games, and critically discusses how current theories of expertise fare with board games."--P.

Psychology of music from sound to significance by Siu-Lan Tan( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Tàn, Pfordresher and Harre provide a nice, engaging and up-to-date overview of the psychology of music, from acoustics to ethnomusicology. The authors accompany the reader through the meanders of this complex field which spans several disciplines. The book, written in a plain and introductory style, is the ideal guide for students, and a refreshing overview for specialists and non-specialists interested in the psychology of music.' Simone Dalla Bella, Department of Psychology, WSFiZ, Warsaw, Poland and Brams, Montreal, Canada" "Why are some disturbances of air molecules heard as ǹoise' while others are perceived as music? What happens at the level of the sound wave, the ear, and the brain when we perform or listen to music? How do musical abilities emerge and develop, and become refined as one acquires musical expertise? And what gives music its deep emotional significance and its power to influence social behavior, across vastly different cultural contexts?" "This book provides an introduction to classic and current studies in the psychology of music, combining a comprehensive summary with critical assessments of existing research. The volume captures the interdisciplinary breadth of the field, while covering central topics in depth." "Part I explores sound and music at an acoustic level, explaining auditory events with respect to the workings of the ear and brain. Part II focuses on perception and cognition of melody, rhythm, and formal structure. Part III examines the emergence and development of musical skills, and turns to the most practical aspects of psychology of music: music practice and performance. Finally, Part IV broadens the discussion to the question of meaning in music, with respect to its social, emotional, philosophical, and cultural significance. Throughout, both behavioral and neuroscientific perspectives are developed." "This book will be invaluable to undergraduate and postgraduate students in the fields of psychology and music, and will appeal to anyone else who is interested in the psychology of music."--Jacket

Figurative language comprehension social and cultural influences by Herbert L Colston( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Figurative Language Comprehension: Social and Cultural Influences is an edited scholarly book that ties together recent research concerning the social and cultural influences on figurative language cognition. These influences include gender, cultural differences, economic status, and inter-group effects, among others. The effects these influences have on people's use, comprehension, and even processing of figurative language, comprise the main theme of this volume. No other book offers such a look at the social and cultural influences on a whole family of figurative forms at several levels of cognition." "This volume will be of great interest to scholars and professionals in the disciplines of social and cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics, and second language acquisition as well as cognitive and other fields of linguistics where scholars have interests in pragmatics, metaphor, symbol, discourse, and narrative. Some knowledge of the empirical and experimental methods used in language research as well as some familiarity with theories underlying the use, comprehension and processing of figurative language would be helpful to readers of this book."--Jacket
