Críticas:

It is only nowthat we are beginning to get the full measure of complexity [of the living body], to see how nature and culture interact, and how brain and mind produce each other. There are a handful, a small handful, of remarkable books which address these central problems with great forcethose of Gerald Edelman and Antonio Damasio at once come to mindand to this select number, Elkhonon Goldbergs book, The Executive Brain, should surely be added. (Oliver Sacks, The New York Review of Books)

Anyone who is interested in the workings of the brain, sciences last frontier, will enjoy reading The Executive Brain The authors use of personal narrative and compelling metaphors help to make even the most technical information accessible to the general audience. (Science Editor)

Goldberg is a good example of someone who seems to have always thought out of the box in both his personal and professional life. He has thus written a fine accessible book on executive brain functions One does not have to completely agree with a position to be stimulated by it, and Goldbergs book is certainly stimulating. (Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books)

An intriguing exploration of the most challenging topic in cognitive neuroscience, the executive function of the prefrontal cortex. (American Scientist)

Reseña del editor:

Elkhonon Goldberg's groundbreaking The Executive Brain was a classic of scientific writing, revealing how the frontal lobes command the most human parts of the mind. Now he offers a completely new book, providing fresh, iconoclastic ideas about the relationship between the brain and the mind.
In The New Executive Brain, Goldberg paints a sweeping panorama of cutting-edge thinking in cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology, one that ranges far beyond the frontal lobes. Drawing on the latest discoveries, and developing complex scientific ideas and relating them to real life through many fascinating case studies and anecdotes, the author explores how the brain engages in complex decision-making; how it deals with novelty and ambiguity; and how it addresses moral choices. At every step, Goldberg challenges entrenched assumptions. For example, we know that the left hemisphere of the brain is the seat of language―but Goldberg argues that language may not be the central adaptation of the left hemisphere. Apes lack language, yet many also show evidence of asymmetric hemispheric development. Goldberg also finds that a complex interaction between the frontal lobes and the amygdale―between a recently evolved and a much older part of the brain―controls emotion, as conscious thoughts meet automatic impulses. The author illustrates this observation with a personal example: the difficulty he experienced when trying to pick up a baby alligator he knew to be harmless, as his amygdala battled his effort to extend his hand.
In the years since the original Executive Brain, Goldberg has remained at the front of his field, constantly challenging orthodoxy. In this revised and expanded edition, he affirms his place as one of our most creative and insightful scientists, offering lucid writing and bold, paradigm-shifting ideas.
