Review:

- Karl H. Pribram, "Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease"

" Each essay is superb in form and scholarship.... An important book that should be read by all interested in the topic." - "Choice"

" The "Mindful Brain" is a proposal by two eminent biological scientists for a mechanism whereby mind becomes manifest from the operations of brain tissue. The proposal is detailed and in many respects sophisticated. " Mountcastle, dean of American neurophysiologists, presents the case for a modular structure of the cerebral cortex.... " Edelman, a Nobel laureate, gives mathematical form to the proposed mechanism by applying to the functioning of the brain the theory of selection which he so successfully applied to immunological processes." - Karl H. Pribram, "Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease"
