Guilford Press, 2000 M01 1 - 436 páginas
How is each individual's unique personality formed? What is it about p ersonality that can change, and why is change often so slow? Promising approaches to these perennial questions are suggested by the explosio n of recent research in neuroscience and brain functioning. This timel y volume presents a coherent, empirically based, and clinically useful framework for understanding personality. Jim Grigsby and David Steven s illuminate links between the organization of the brain and the unfol ding of personality, and show how different aspects of personality are mediated by the brain's nonconscious learning and memory systems. Pro viding new insights for clinicians, students, and researchers, this bo ok builds a critical bridge between existing psychological theories of personality and emerging knowledge in clinical neuroscience.
