"Along with a light complement of fascinating psychological case studies of representations of space and time, and a heavy set of polemical sideswipes at neuroscientists and their hapless computational fellow travelers, this book has the simple goal of persuading us of the importance of a particular information processing mechanism that it claims does not currently occupy center stage." (Nature Neuroscience, October 2009)"Any scientist seriously interested in how the brain does its work will find Gallistel and King's new book indispensable. It challenges modern dogma and does so in a clear and compelling manner."
–Michael Gazzaniga, University of California, Santa Barbara
"Gallistel and King present a provocative challenge to our current "standard model" of information processing in the brain. This book's ideas should be read and digested by both cognitive scientists and neuroscientists - anyone seriously interested in the biological or computational underpinnings of learning."
–Joshua B. Tenenbaum, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"A lucid and convincing argument for a particular architecture for encoding information in the brain, based on some key notions of computational cognitive science, a significant contribution to neuroscience."
–Aravind K. Joshi, University of Pennsylvania
