Interactive Human Brain in 3D

“Techniques for mapping and recording brain structure and function are powerful as never before—and yet, a deeper understanding of how the brain works remains elusive. Michael Anderson’s book provides a thought-provoking and far-ranging perspective on how nervous systems are organized, how distributed neural activity guides behavior, and how brain activity interfaces with the body and the surrounding environment. After Phrenology should be read by neuroscientists and cognitive scientists alike—indeed, by anyone interested in modern accounts of brain function.”
—Olaf Sporns, Distinguished Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Indiana University; author of Networks of the Brain and Discovering the Human Connectome

“In this agenda-setting book, Anderson, who is one of the few people in a position to speak authoritatively about philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience, presents the first book-length exploration of an alternative to both localist and globalist accounts of the neural units of cognition. Eagerly awaited by those who have followed Anderson's work, this book should be a revelation to anyone who believes that every mental operation has its own special brain area.”
Steven Horst, Professor of Philosophy, Wesleyan University; author of Symbols, Computation, and Intentionality, Beyond Reduction, and Laws, Mind, and Free Will

“Human neuroscience has been using 21st-century tools to investigate a 17th-century theory of the mind. Until now. Anderson provides his readers with front-row seats to the emerging paradigm shift in the human neurosciences. Modularity. Phrenology. Faculty psychology. These assumptions led neuroscientists to search in vain for a compartmentalized brain. With powerful metaphors, useful conceptual tools, and inspiring research findings, Anderson paints a picture of a highly interactive human brain and the sort of 21st-century neuroscience framework that is needed to explain how it creates a human mind.”
Lisa Feldman Barrett, University Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Northeastern University

“In this ground-breaking treatment, Michael Anderson argues for a vision of the brain as, at root, a dynamical system for the control of action. This has radical implications for how to think about the role of different neural regions and offers a promising way to blend neuroscientific research with insights from the study of embodied and socially situated cognition. Mindedness, Anderson argues ‘is the activity of making the world a home.’ The writing is fluid, the ideas compelling, and the overall vision unique. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the nature of mind and action.”

What is the size difference in sheep brainstem and human brainstem

The human brain stem is towards the backbone and downwards, because in the human body the backbone is vertical; compared to a sheep's backbone which is horizontal, and its brain is directed outwards. This would explain why the size of the brain stems are different. The bodies are formed differently and the brains are situated differently so the brain stem is sized according to the need to support the brain.
