Issue of Springer's exciting new multi-disciplinary journal in the
neurosciences: "Cognitive Computation" - www.springer.com/12559

The list of published articles (Table of Contents) can be found at the end
of this message.

You will also be pleased to know that ALL (full) articles in Cognitive
Computation will be FREELY AVAILABLE for access through December 31, 2009!
Please ask your library to subscribe for 2010 and beyond!

The full listing of Issue 2 can be viewed here (which includes invited
reviews and original research contributions from leading researchers,
including Giacomo Indiveri, Rodney Douglas, Jurgen Schmidhuber, Thomas
Wennekers, Pentti Kanerva and Friedemann Pulvermuller):

The full listing of the Inaugural Issue 1 can be viewed here (which
includes invited authoritative reviews by leading researchers in their
areas - including keynote papers from London University's John Taylor,
Igor Aleksander and Stanford University's James McClelland, and invited
papers from Kevin Gurney, Ron Sun, Pentti Haikonen, Geoff Underwood,
