Oxford University Press 2019EISBN 9780190686390
Minds enable people to perceive, imagine, solve problems, understand, learn, speak, reason, create, and be emotional and conscious. Competing explanations of how the mind works have identified it as soul, computer, brain, dynamical system, or social construction. This text explains minds in terms of interacting mechanisms operating at multiple levels, including the social, mental, neural, and molecular. 'Brain-Mind' presents a unified, brain-based theory of cognition and emotion with applications to the most complex kinds of thinking, right up to consciousness and creativity.
