This classic 1936 work in vision science, written by a leading figure in Germany's Gestalt movement in psychology and appearing in English for the first time, addresses topics that remain of major interest to vision researchers today. Wolfgang Metzger's main argument, drawn from Gestalt theory, is that the objects we perceive in visual experience are not the objects themselves but perceptual effigies of those objects constructed by our brain according to natural rules.Each chapter is accompanied by visua...

In Mind From Body, Don M. Tucker provides an analysis of how our brains have become what they are today, and he speculates about what they could be tomorrow. He presents important research that explains how personal experience creates the emotional and motivational bases of each of our thoughts, even though we are usually not aware that this is happening. Tucker shows that in exploring how these bodily thought processes still determine how we react to the world and make decisions, we can become more rationa...

Mirrors in the Brain: How Our Minds Share Actions and Emotions

Mirrors in the Brain: How Our Minds Share Actions and Emotions

ISBN: 9780199217984
Published by: Oxford University Press, USA

Emotions and actions are powerfully contagious; when we see someone laugh, cry, show disgust, or experience pain, in some sense, we share that emotion. When we see someone in distress, we share that distress. When we see a great actor, musician or sportsperson perform at the peak of their abilities, it can feel like we are experiencing just something of what they are experiencing. Yet only recently, with the discover of mirror neurons, has it become clear just how this powerful sharing of experience is real... Read more at Blackwells or Read more at Amazon
