Reflecting recent changes in the way cognition and the brain are  studied, this thoroughly updated fourth edition of this bestselling  textbook provides a comprehensive and student-friendly guide to  cognitive neuroscience. Jamie Ward provides an easy-to-follow  introduction to neural structure and function, as well as all the key  methods and procedures of cognitive neuroscience, with a view to helping  students understand how they can be used to shed light on the neural  basis of cognition.

The book presents a comprehensive  overview of the latest theories and findings in all the key topics in  cognitive neuroscience, including vision, hearing, attention, memory,  speech and language, numeracy, executive function, social and emotional  behavior and developmental neuroscience. Throughout, case studies,  newspaper reports, everyday examples and studentfriendly pedagogy are  used to help students understand the more challenging ideas that  underpin the subject.

New to this edition:

  • Increased focus on the impact of genetics on cognition 
  • New coverage of the cutting-edge field of connectomics
  • Coverage  of the latest research tools including tES and fNIRS and new  methodologies such as multi-voxel pattern analysis in fMRI research 
  • Additional  content is also included on network versus modular approaches, brain  mechanisms of hand-eye coordination, neurobiological models of speech  perception and production and recent models of anterior cingulate  function.

Written in an engaging style by a  leading researcher in the field and presented in full color including  numerous illustrative materials, this book will be invaluable as a core  text for undergraduate modules in cognitive neuroscience. It can also be  used as a key text on courses in cognition, cognitive neuropsychology,  biopsychology or brain and behavior. Those embarking on research will  find it an invaluable starting point and reference.
