Cognition Special Issue

Edited by Brian Scholl

An overview of object-based models of attention.

Empirical and theoretical foundations of a cognitive neuroscience of consciousness.

The contributors bring a wide range of methodologies to bear on the common problem of image-based object recognition.

Much of current cognitive science is a debate between two views ofthinking—thinking as governed by mental rules and thinking asgoverned by similarity among ideas. Contributors to this volumeexplore these contrasting views.

This broad-ranging volume includes a series of articles that were originally published as a special issue of Cognition produced to celebrate the 50th volume of the journal.

The six essays in this book focus on the empirically answerable issue of whether and to what extent it is possible to explain observations about the mind in terms of observations about the brain.
