A more nuanced perspective on cognition, behavior, personality, and pathology. 

It is explained that mental activity is not possible without concepts/memory structures that exist in the brain and result from perceptual learning. Core mental activities including thinking, reasoning, and judgment are described as components of self-regulation and in terms of interacting neural systems.

This framework also leads to a more specific and less stigmatizing system for classifying and diagnosing mental illnesses.

This concise volume: 

    Introduces the S-O-R (stimulus-organism-response) model of mental activity.
  • Recasts mental processes as neuro-mental processes.
  • Provides empirical evidence for the neural basis for judgments.
  • Addresses ongoing mind/brain questions such as whether thinking is unconscious.

Key Insights into Basic of Mental Activity will interest scientists doing research in psychology, psychiatry, psychotherapy, human biology/anthropology, linguistics, and neuroscience. Professors, lecturers, and instructors will find it important as a class text in these fields. And the book’s clinical implications make it useful to practitioners of psychology, psychiatry, and psychotherapy.


Introduction to the study of the mind, mental activity and behavior.- The S-O-R model.- Mental processes are neuro-mental processes.- Judgments are processes of feature comparison: experimental evidence.- Generalization of the process of feature comparison: set theory, neural systems.- Conclusions on determinants of behavior and implications for psychiatry, clinical psychology and psychotherapy.
