The Sage Handbook of Cognitive and Systems Neuroscience
Cognitive Systems, Development and Applications

Edited by:

November 2023 | 624 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Cognitive neuroscience is the interdisciplinary study of how cognitive and intellectual functions are processed and represented within the brain, which is critical to building understanding of core psychological and behavioural processes such as learning, memory, behaviour, perception, and consciousness. Understanding these processes not only offers relevant fundamental insights into brain-behavioural relations, but may also lead to actionable knowledge that can be applied in the clinical treatment of patients with various brain-related disabilities.

This Handbook examines complex cognitive systems through the lens of neuroscience, as well as providing an overview of development and applications within cognitive and systems neuroscience research and beyond.

Containing 35 original, state of the art contributions from leading experts in the field, this Handbook is essential reading for researchers and students of cognitive psychology, as well as scholars across the fields of neuroscientific, behavioural and health sciences.

Gregory J. Boyle

Professor Boyle has spent over three decades undertaking quantitative research in the field of psychometrics, as related to the measurement of individual differences in personality, intelligence, and motivation, as well as undertaking studies within the fields of neuropsychology, clinical psychology, and educational psychology. In more recent years, he has applied his extensive research skills to studies within the broad fields of medical/health psychology, and has undertaken many studies within the area of women's health. Lately, he has focused his attention more on research topics pertaining to men's health. More About Author

Georg Northoff

Georg Northoff is Canada Research Chair for Mind, Brain Imaging and Neuroethics at the University of Ottawa/Canada. He made major contribution in neuroscience on the neural correlates of mental features like consciousness, self, mind wandering and mental disorders having discovered their spatiotemporal mechanisms bridging the gap of neural and mental activity. This led him to develop an integrated brain-mind model for which Spatiotemporal Neuroscience is the key discipline. More About Author
