Abstract and Keywords
This book consists of two volumes that review the current state of the art in cognitive neuroscience. Volume 2 has four sections. The first section explores emotion and its link to perception and attention, how emotion affects cognition, and genetic and developmental approaches to emotion. The second section deals with self and social cognition. It includes chapters that examine topics such as the perception of nonverbal cues and perception–action links, face recognition, empathy and social interaction, impression formation, and drawing of inferences about others’ mental states. The third section is about higher cognitive functions and covers topics ranging from conflict monitoring and cognitive control, the hierarchical control of action, decision-making, categorization, thinking, expectancies, and numerical cognition. Finally, the fourth section contains four chapters that illustrate how disruptions of the mechanisms of cognition and emotion produce abnormal functioning in individuals. This section covers topics such as attention deficit–hyperactivity disorder, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
