Comparative Neurospychology is a collection of state-of-the-art essays by some of the world's leading neuropsychologists. Taking as their starting point the assumption that the human brain shares many of its most important functional systems with its primate relatives, the authors take acomparative evolutionary approach to understanding human cognition and brain function. A wide range of subject areas are covered, including memory, visual and somatosensory perception, motor control, attention, cross-modality integration, interhemispheric transmission, and behaviouralintelligence.
