Mind from Body

Experience from Neural Structure

Don M. Tucker

  • - An introduction to the major dimensions of brain organization, written in detail to allow a complete understanding, but without assuming prior knowledge of brain anatomy or physiology.
  • - Attractive illustrations of the brain that show the major brain networks and their interconnections.
  • -A new theory explaining how abstract concepts could be created through the dialectical consolidation of memory, arbitrating between visceral, limbic versus somatic, neocortical representational constraints.
  • - Examples of episodes in the experience in the daily life of young people that can be analyzed to see how neural mechanisms could create each experience.
