Abstract:

Memory and the Computational Brain offers a provocative argument that goes
to the heart of neuroscience, proposing that the field can and should
benefit from the recent advances of cognitive science and the development
of information theory over the course of the last several decades.

-A provocative argument that impacts across the fields of linguistics,
cognitive science, and neuroscience, suggesting new perspectives on
learning mechanisms in the brain

-Proposes that the field of neuroscience can and should benefit from the
recent advances of cognitive science and the development of information theory

-Suggests that the architecture of the brain is structured precisely for
learning and for memory, and integrates the concept of an addressable
read/write memory mechanism into the foundations of neuroscience

-Based on lectures in the prestigious Blackwell-Maryland Lectures in
Language and Cognition, and now significantly reworked and expanded to make
it ideal for students and faculty

"Any scientist seriously interested in how the brain does its work will
find Gallistel and King's new book indispensable. It challenges modern
dogma and does so in a clear and compelling manner."
-Michael Gazzaniga, University of California, Santa Barbara

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be 
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers 
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any 
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting 
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
