This important book, by the most distinguished Soviet psychologist of our time, is the product of almost forty years of extensive research aimed at understanding the cerebral basis of human psychological activity. The main part of the book describes what we know today about the individual systems that make up the human brain and about the role of the individual zones of the cerebral hemispheres in the task of providing the necessary conditions for higher forms of mental activity to take place. Finally, Luria analyzes the cerebral organization of perception and action, of attention and memory, or speech and intellectual processes, and attempts to fit the facts obtained by neuropsychological studies of individual brain systems into their appropriate place in the grand design of psychological science.

Functional brain mapping has by now gained a high impact on research and clinical practice: huge funds are unveiled all over the world in order to boost the research and clinical applications of this field of neuroscience. The most successful approach to unlock the mysteries of the brain, to tell it with Jay Ingram, is to bring together an interdisciplinary network of scientists and clinicians and encourage an interchange of ideas. It is this crossfire we try to promote with this book.

The new discipline Neurotheology is the scientific study of how human physiology (the brain in particular) and mind experience, interpret, generate and mediate beliefs. The discipline engages meaningfully diverse understandings of reality including the physical, mental, and spiritual. Its primary objectives are the following. 1. Establish comprehensive, interdisciplinary approaches to understand beliefs. 2. Explain, interpret and predict the influences of beliefs to thought, feeling, behavior and experience. As a discipline, Neurotheology affords different branches of science like biology, cognitive science, genetics, neuroscience, and psychology opportunity to develop distinct approaches to understand and explain the relationship between brain/mind and beliefs. This essay offers a framework to establish Neurotheology as a valuable discipline while sharing over 250 sources in this new genre. Viewpoints from neuroscience will serve as application for examination.

Yes, there really is a brain that destroys itself. And its a brain just like the one in your head. But not every one of the brains like yours will ultimately destroy itself. However, if the destroying begins, then the signs of this are described in what neurologists take to be the symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases. Those most often encountered are Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease, but there are many otherssurprisingly many, as explained here. This is the first ever evolutionary explanation of these diseases, which sheds new light on their origin, basic nature, previously un-imagined enormous range, and why they so often have fatal consequences. Because of the disabling nature of many of these diseases, they often require the selfless devotion of a caregiverthe caregiver to whom the book is dedicated. The book is directed at the non-specialist, but will also be useful to the specialist.
