Summary Cognitive Neuroscience: the biology of the mind - Gazzaniga - 4th edition

Cognitive neuroscience got its name in the late seventies. Cognition means the process of understanding and neuroscience studies the organization and function of the nervous system. The major limitation that was present in the past was that there was no method to systematically and experimentally examine the psyche. Willis was the first to relate specific brain damage to behavioral disruptions. He developed a theory that described how information is transported through the brain (neuronal conduction). Thus, Willis stands at the beginning of the discipline of cognitive neuroscience. Modern science is essentially concerned with the question of whether the brain works as a whole or in independent parts. In the nineteenth century, Gall and Spurzheim developed phrenology, based on Willis' proposition that isolated brain damage could affect behavior. Proponents of phrenology state that every part of the brain is involved in a specific function, such as language and personality...

Het is deze uitbreiding geweest die het mogelijk heeft gemaakt dat de mens niet alleen over taal kan beschikken maar ook over o.a. kunst, cultuur en uiteraard wetenschap. De cognitieve neurowetenschap kreeg zijn naam eind zeventiger jaren. Cognitie betekent het proces van begrijpen en de neurowetenschap bestudeerd het zenuwstelstel. Grote beperking die er vroeger was, was dat men geen methoden had om de psyche systematisch en op experimentele wijze te onderzoeken. Willis was de eerste die specifieke schade aan het brein kon relateren aan storingen in gedrag. Hij stelde een theorie op die beschreef hoe informatie door het brein getransporteerd werd (neuronale conductie). Zodoende staat Willis aan het begin van de cognitieve neurowetenschap.Het breinDe moderne wetenschap houdt zich in essentie bezig met de vraag of...
