Research Methods for Cognitive Neuroscience



April 2019 | 616 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

This fresh, new textbook provides a thorough and student-friendly guide to the different techniques used in cognitive neuroscience. Given the breadth of neuroimaging techniques available today, this text is invaluable, serving as an approachable text for students, researchers, and writers. This text provides the right level of detail for those who wish to understand the basics of neuroimaging and also provides more advanced material in order to learn further about particular techniques. 

With a conversational, student-friendly writing style, Aaron Newman introduces the key principles of neuroimaging techniques, the relevant theory and the recent changes in the field.

This well-written textbook by Aaron Newman enriches the literature by covering key concepts in research methods for cognitive neuroscience. The book follows a logical progression and covers the main neuroimaging techniques, thus constituting an excellent resource for anyone interested in cognitive neuroscience research and practice. The layout and organisation of each chapter are excellent, there are plenty of visually appealing images throughout and an excellent summary at the end of each chapter.

The book is a fast-track to fundamental knowledge on the general theory of doing research in cognitive neuroscience and a comprehensive introduction to a large panorama of research methods. It gives the reader a strong focus on learning and understanding, and an inspiration to think further into the use of high-tech and basic research instruments. The book is therefore recommended for both the introduction and intermediate teaching into cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology and in addition as a quick reference work for the single technical methods. A must have for students and teachers in the field!
