This book discusses how different types of memory, attention, decision making, and related functions are implemented by processing in the brain, and how noise contributes to the functions being performed. It links the neural computation approach not only firmly to neuronal neurophysiology, which provides much of the primary data about how the brain operates, but also to psychophysical studies; to studies of patients with brain damage and psychiatric disorders; and to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and other neuroimaging approaches.

Keywords: memory; attention; decision making; noise; neural computation; neuronal neurophysiology; neuroimaging; fMRI
