  • "...a wonderful and extensive collection of insights into most aspects of human brain function that have been investigated with functional neuroimaging. Human Brain Function provides a framework for students and investigators on which to build future studies of human brain function at every level of the systems." --Argye E. Hillis in ANNALS OF NEUROLOGY (August 2005, Vol. 58, No. 2) ¿Human Brain Function reflects the contributions of a network of laboratories, many in Europe, centered on the Functional Imaging Laboratory of the University College London¿This gives the volume a great deal of coherence, ¿ for an authoritative, state-of-the-art summary of cognitive neuroscience, I do not know a better book. I highly recommend it to all students, scientists and lay persons interested in the field.¿ ¿B.J. Baars in SCIENCE AND CONSCIOUSNESS REVIEW (July 2004)
