Reviews


"Editor Gregory (neuropsychology emeritus, Bristol U.) and contributors explore over 1,000 aspects of the human mind, including memory, language, imagination, mental illness and handicap, consciousness, sensory and extrasensory perception, and a wide array of theories, symptoms, and syndromes. Contributors come from such diverse fields as experimental psychology, linguistics, psychiatry, neuroscience, philosophy, and physics. This second edition includes updated information from new research on such topics as artificial life, imagination, and cruelty, and mini-symposia on consciousness, brain imaging, and artificial intelligence. Gregory includes a glossary and an index of subjects and contributors. Now it is impossible to excuse oneself by saying one does not have an owner's manual for one's mind."--Reference and Research Library Book News
