This third installment of a highly regarded compilation of reviews on cognitive neuroscience represents the combined work of more than 100 leading lights in this field. The 94 chapters, organized in 11 sections, provide an expansive snapshot of current thinking about how the brain goes about processing incoming information, acting on these inputs and reconfiguring itself over time. Michael Gazzaniga, the editor-in-chief, and his team of 14 coeditors have taken pains to balance the excitement of new discoveries relevant to the understanding of normal human cognition with still uncertain and debatable issues.
