    Authoritative, applied, and accessible

    Written by world-renowned researchers, including Michael Gazzaniga, Cognitive Neuroscience remains the gold standard in its field, showcasing the latest discoveries and clinical applications. In its new Fifth Edition, updated material is woven into the narrative of each chapter and featured in new Hot Science and Lessons from the Clinic sections. The presentation is also more accessible and focused as the result of Anatomical Orientation figures, Take-Home Message features, and streamlined chapter openers.


    The gold standard, more accessible than ever

    Retaining its hallmark authority, the Fifth Edition’s NEW streamlined organization and shorter chapter introductions make cognitive neuroscience approachable for a wider variety of students. NEW redesigned illustrations and anatomical figures facilitate student understanding, and NEW Take-Home Messages in each chapter reinforce essential concepts.

    Clinical applications and current research will engage students

    In addition to the most current patient-study research, the text provides a fascinating window into the field’s real-world applications. NEW Chapter openers share patient stories and NEWLessons from the Clinic show how in-class concepts play out in a clinical setting.

    Compelling resources for a better course experience

    Rich lecture resources, including videos and updated PowerPoints, ensure an engaged classroom. A new Interactive Instructor’s Guide and revised Test Bank simplify course preparation and administration.


    When students purchase a new copy of this text, they also receive access to the ebook and ZAPS Cognition Labs. These labs allow students to take the role of either the subject or researcher in engaging, scientific experiments.

    • Each lab begins with a brief introduction that relates the topic to students’ lives.
    • Students will then engage in a hands-on experience that, for most labs, produces data based on their individual responses.
    • The theories behind the concepts are then explained alongside the data students have generated.
    • An assessment component lets students confirm that they understand the concepts central to each lab.
