This book goes beyond the nature and nurture divisions Pages: "n and edited by internationally recognized cognitive neuroscientists, this book represents the astonishing advances that have taken place in the study of attention and its mechanisms.4 Stars!", Doody's Electronic Journal Published On: /5(1). The scientific study of human attention has advanced greatly during the past decade owing, in part, to the emergence of the new field of cognitive neuroscience. The goal of cognitive neuroscience is to isolate the physiological and anatomical bases of human cognition in the nervous system.

Book Description. This volume describes research and theory concerning the cognitive neuroscience of attention. Filling a key gap, it emphasizes developmental changes that occur in the brain-attention relationship in infants, children, and throughout the lifespan and reviews the literature on attention, development, and underlying neural systems in a comprehensive manner.

Mangun serves as an associate editor for the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, and is Editor-in-Chief of the series The Neuroscience of Attention, published by Oxford University Press. He uses cognitive neuroscience tools in the study of brain attention by:

piece of evidence comes from studies showing vulnerability of cognitive skills, including attention, to enviro nmental aspects such as parenting and socioeconomic status [64]. He was amongst the first in the UK to use both functional brain imaging, and transcranial magnetic brain stimulation to intervene in brain activity in healthy human subjects. His books include The Neurobiology of the Prefrontal Cortex () and Cognitive Neuroscience: A Very Short Introduction (). The “control” of perceptual attention is a balance between bottom-up and top-down influences. Bottom-up attention Bottom-up attention is thought to originate at the lowest levels of sensory processing and to be determined by properties of sensory stimuli, such as saliency and novelty. That is, stimuli that are salient or novel will be processed. Cognitive Neuroscience of Attention by Michael I. Posner. This volume presents the latest advances in understanding attention: its anatomy, circuitry, functions, and deficits. Outstanding investigators have written brief yet substantive chapters in which they not only summarize key findings but also illuminate their goals and the directions their research is taking.
