not yet rated|write a review
A subject of intense scientific curiosity, the cortex is the most highly developed part of the brain, yet the youngest in evolutionary terms. This revised and updated translation of Creutzfeldt's classic German text, brings together for the first time the biological, psychological andphilosophical strands of enquiry relating to the cortex. Otto Creutzfeldt was one of the most eminent neuroscientists of the century until his untimely death in 1992. He is known as one of the pioneers of neurophysiology and his outstanding scientific reputation, combined with a subject of intense interest to researchers, will ensure that this uniquelycomprehensive book will be valued both for its scientific and historical contributions to the field.

Editorial Reviews

`'...a comprehensive synopsis of cortical sturcture and function in relation to sensory-motor and cognitive performance...the book provides a rich source of empirical facts and critical reasoning for students of biology, physiology, neurology, psychology and philosophy. It is an invitation toall to join the program of an integrative neuroscience and, oreover, to be challenged to come closer to the alleged limits in the relationship between brain and mind, eager to find a way to transcend them.''Ethology 104, 805-808 (1998)
