Memory and the Computational Brain offers a provocative argument that goes to the heart of neuroscience, proposing that the field can and should benefit from the recent advances of cognitive science and the development of information theory over the course of the last several decades. 
  • A provocative argument that impacts across the fields of linguistics, cognitive science, and neuroscience, suggesting new perspectives on learning mechanisms in the brain
  • Proposes that the field of neuroscience can and should benefit from the recent advances of cognitive science and the development of information theory
  • Suggests that the architecture of the brain is structured precisely for learning and for memory, and integrates the concept of an addressable read/write memory mechanism into the foundations of neuroscience
  • Based on lectures in the prestigious Blackwell-Maryland Lectures in Language and Cognition, and now significantly reworked and expanded to make it ideal for students and faculty

Keywords: Psycholinguistics, cognition, neuroscience, cognitive science, linguistics, memory, language and thought, mind, computational linguistics, computer science, information theory
