This volume portrays aspects of neuroscience today - language development, visual awareness, neuronal plasticity, sensory perception, memory formation - by presenting studies on their normal mechanisms alongside investigations of abnormalities caused by degenerative disease, addiction, developmental errors, and other maladies. In this volume over 80 of the world's investigators discuss their perspectives.
