Selectionism and the Brain addresses a number of important theoretical issues in light of recent empirical data from neuropsychological studies. Edited by two researchers at The Neurosciences Institute, this volume features contributions from such well-known neuroscientists as W. Singer, L.R. Squire, A. Georgopoulos, and O. Sacks. Selectionism and the Brain evaluates selectionist approaches to brain function, including Gerald Edelmans revolutionary theoryof neural Darwinism, and explores how these approaches change the way we look at neurons, neuronal systems, and the brain.
Students, post doctorates, researchers, academic clinicians, theoreticians, neural networkers, and advanced neuropsychologists.
