Cognitive Science and Neuroscience

New and forthcoming books from the MIT Press

“I don't believe there has ever been a time when so many smart people from so many academic disciplines were committed to solving the puzzle of consciousness. Whether consciousness exists only in humans or is more widely dispersed throughout nature, or can be recreated in computational systems, is probably one of the greatest mysteries of our time. It's going to take many researchers throughout the cognitive sciences—especially neuroscience, computer science, and psychology—to figure it out.”
Philip Laughlin, Senior Acquisitions Editor, Cognitive Science, Philosophy, Linguistics, and Bioethics
