Contents Notes
The Methods: State of the Art and Prospects -- Neural Correlates of Thinking -- Functional MRI Limitations and Aspirations -- Studying Cognition with Positron Emission Tomography -- Investigating the Neural Correlates of Percepts Using Magnetoencephalography and Magnetic Source Imaging -- EEG and Thinking -- Near-Infrared Spectroscopy for Studying Higher Cognition -- Integration of EEG and fMRI -- Neural Correlates of Key Components of Higher Cognition -- The Neural Implementation of Working Memory -- Current Perspectives on Imaging Language -- Functional Neuroimaging and the Logic of Conscious and Unconscious Mental Processes -- Knowledge Systems of the Brain -- Neural Representation of Time and Timing Processes -- From Conceptual Considerations to Neural Correlates -- Fractionating the System of Deductive Reasoning -- Human Thought and the Lateral Prefrontal Cortex -- Neural Correlates of Insight Phenomena -- Brain-Based Mechanisms Underlying Causal Reasoning. The advances in neuroimaging technologies have led to substantial progress in understanding the neural mechanisms of cognitive functions. Thinking and reasoning have only recently been addressed by using neuroimaging techniques. The present book comprehensively explores current approaches and contributions to understanding the neural mechanisms of thinking in a concise and readable manner. It provides an insight into the state of the art and the potentials, but also the limitations of current neuroimaging methods for studying cognitive functions. The book will be a valuable companion for everyone interested in one of the most fascinating topics of cognitive neuroscience.
