The Oxford Guide to the Mind Summary


The Oxford Guide to the Mind by Edited by Geoff Underwood

Based on the seminal Oxford Companion to the Mind, this Guide presents a thematically organized tour of the mind: what it is, what it does, and what happens when things go wrong. Each section consists of an introductory essay followed by specially selected entries drawn from Richard Gregory's famous Companion. The focus is on psychological processes (and the underlying physiology) that are central to everyday experience. From the hardware of the mind, the biological basis of behaviour, through consciousness, learning, and mental disorders, to practical examples of minds in action (such as driving a car), it explores in fascinating and authoritative detail the everyday mysteries of the mind. Although the bulk of the text is based on selections from the existing Companion, there are in addition to the new essays that introduce each section five entirely new entries based on the latest research; cognitive defects; connectionist models of mental processes, connectionist models of mental deficits, images of the brain in action, and schizophrenia.
