The convention from which this e-book derives happened in Tsukuba, Japan in March 2004. The 5th in a continuous sequence of meetings, this one used to be geared up to envision dynamic tactics in "lower order" cognition from notion to recognition to reminiscence, contemplating either the behavioral and the neural degrees. We have been lucky to draw a good workforce of con­ tributors representing 5 nations, which ended in an exhilarating confer­ ence and, because the reader will fast become aware of, a very good set of chapters. In bankruptcy 1, we are going to offer a sketchy "road map" to those chapters, elu­ cidating a few of the topics that emerged on the convention. The convention itself used to be very good. We greatly loved the vari­ ety of viewpoints and matters that all of us had the chance to grapple with. there have been vigorous and lively exchanges, and lots of percentages to speak to one another approximately interesting new examine, accurately what an exceptional confer­ ence should still advertise. we are hoping that the readers of this ebook could have a similar experience—moving from cautious experimental designs within the cogni­ tive laboratory to neural mechanisms measured through new applied sciences, from the laboratory to the emergency room, from perceptual studying to alterations in reminiscence over many years, the entire whereas squarely concentrating on how most sensible to give an explanation for cognition, no longer just to degree it. eventually, the objective of technology is, in fact, rationalization. We additionally wish that the reader will come away totally confident that cognition is a completely dynamic, interactive system.

Hemispatial neglect (or neglect, for short) is a deficit in representing contralesional space, acquired following a brain lesion. Individuals with this disorder fail to notice or report information on the side of space opposite the lesion, despite intact sensory and motor processes (Bartolomeo & Chokron, 2001; Bisiach & Vallar, 2000). Thus, for example, patients with a right hemisphere lesion fail to copy features on the left of a display despite incorporating the corresponding features on the ipsilesional right.
