Organized into 23 chapters, this book begins with the identification of component systems for syntax, verbal memory, focusing attention, and a system common to sequencing motor movements and phonemic discrimination. Subsequent chapter elucidates neurophysiological correlates of mental processes in man. Other chapters explore relations between electrical brain rhythms and behavior; brain exploration in psychophysiology; potentialities of neurophysiology in study and cure of mental disorders in epilepsy; and structural analysis of non-verbal thinking in man. The neuropharmacological analysis of the brain's functional organization in processes of formation and retrieval of memory engrams; role of neuropeptides in synapsomodification; and levels of functioning of transmitter systems and epileptogenesis are also explained.
