About the Authors
  • Updated fully, this accessible and comprehensive text highlights the most important theoretical, conceptual and methodological issues in cognitive neuroscience. Written by two experienced teachers, the consistent narrative ensures that students link concepts across chapters, and the careful selection of topics enables them to grasp the big picture without getting distracted by details. Clinical applications such as developmental disorders, brain injuries and dementias are highlighted. In addition, analogies and examples within the text, opening case studies, and 'In Focus' boxes engage students and demonstrate the relevance of the material to real-world concerns. Students are encouraged to develop the critical thinking skills that will enable them to evaluate future developments in this fast-moving field. A new chapter on neuroscience and society considers how cognitive neuroscience issues relate to the law, education, and ethics, highlighting the clinical and real-world relevance. An expanded online package includes a test bank.

    • Provides a readable yet thorough text that highlights the most important theoretical, conceptual and methodological issues in the neural basis of cognition
    • Introduces students to the fascinating intersection of brain and cognition, and explores how the brain supports mental functions such as perception, memory, language, attention, emotion, and social cognition
    • Engages students and relates the material to real-world concerns through the use of examples within the text, and a focus on clinical applications such as developmental disorders, brain injuries and dementias, as well as opening case studies and 'In Focus' boxes

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Banich and Compton’s writing is very accessible to any reader, sophisticated but not overwhelming, and their use of illustrations, examples and cases add greatly to the instructional value.' Gretchen Reeves, Eastern Michigan University

    'This is simply the cornerstone text in the field of cognitive neuroscience; very thorough and complete, a great overview.' Penny Seymoure, Carthage College, Wisconsin

    'Banich and Compton are the best of the bunch for helping students understand the science behind the studies.' Catherine L. Reed, Claremont McKenna College, California

    'The unique voice, organization, and interesting content make the book relevant and engaging to undergraduate and graduate students alike.' Rebecca Silton, Loyola University, Chicago

    'Banich and Compton provide a broad, current, and accessible introduction to the mind and brain in Cognitive Neuroscience. This new edition builds on the considerable strengths of prior editions, exposing students to a range of cutting edge science in accessible prose. The result is a compelling introduction to the field.' David Badre, Brown University, Rhode Island

    'Banich and Compton provide an updated text with unprecedented breadth and depth. Cognitive Neuroscience details the impressive array of neuroimaging techniques available today and current findings ranging from motor control and sensation to higher level visual processes, learning and memory, executive functions and emotion. The engaging examples will readily captivate new scholars.​' Rachael D. Seidler, University of Florida

    'An excellent introduction to the field of cognitive neuroscience - comprehensive, insightful and well written. The focus on translating neuroscience knowledge to clinical and societal issues is timely and sets the book apart. A great resource for anyone who wants to learn about the brain!' Sabine Kastner, Princeton University, New Jersey

    Advance praise: 'The fourth edition of Cognitive Neuroscience is an incredibly thorough update with virtually all chapters rewritten and updated with new figures and tables. Now the most interesting scientific topic of our time has a textbook that conveys the excitement of learning how the brain enables the mind.' William Sturgill, Rockhurst University, Missouri

    Three main features make this edition outstanding: (i) up to date information based on recent research findings of frontiers in Cognitive Neuroscience (ii) systemic approach focusing on the relationship between neural mechanisms underlying cognitive processes (iii) well written chapters communicating complex information in logic and clear way. I would recommend this book for UG students in modules Brain & Mind, 'Cognitive Neuroscience' MSc in Psychology, MSc in Clinical and Cognitive Psychology

    Marie T. Banich, University of Colorado Boulder
    Marie T. Banich uses brain imaging techniques to understand the neural systems that enable us to direct actions and thoughts in a goal-oriented manner, often referred to as executive function. Her research findings have been published in leading journals, including Science. Among her professional experiences, Professor Banich has been a member of the MacArthur Foundation on Adolescent Development and Juvenile Justice, a Fulbright Senior Scholar in Verona, Italy, and a recipient of a James Cattell sabbatical award. Currently she serves as the co-Principal Investigator for the Colorado site of the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development study, an unprecedented 10-year longitudinal study that uses neuroimaging to provide an unrivaled window on development of the adolescent brain and its influences on cognitive and emotional development.

    Rebecca J. Compton, Haverford College, Pennsylvania
    Rebecca J. Compton has taught at Haverford College since 1999 and in 2012 she received Haverford's prestigious Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching. She received her B.A. from Vassar College, New York, and her Ph.D. in biological psychology from the University of Chicago. She is the recipient of several NSF and NIH grants for research in primarily undergraduate institutions and has served on the Education and Training Committee of the Society for Psychophysiological Research.
