"From a review of the previous edition:"
"This book is a modern classic, whose impact has reverberated through neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy. Supported by a compelling combination of empirical evidence and theoretical synthesis, Milner and Goodale's framework has reoriented our understanding of the relations between perception, action, and consciousness." - David Chalmers, Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Centre for Consciousness, Australian National University, and author of 'The Conscious Mind'.
