I was extremely disapointed in the scholarly quality and depth of this work, as evidenced by its minimal bibliography. Since I had devoted a chapter of my PhD thesis to the neurological perception of the Classical city in the Late Roman East, I was anticipating a substantial supporting source that connects up-to-date neurological studies to the perception of architectural space and form. Instead there is very little, but a few cursery paragraphs on architecture itself. The chapters, despite possessing drawings of varied architectural forms (cover art is pretty, page art is poor), primarily give a very basic overview of the brain systems and sensory functions that seem to leave it up to the reader to make the architectural leap beyond the one page, six-point discussion under the subtitle 'What Does this Have to Do with Architecture (p. 47)? Afterward I was left asking the same question. Further, the concluding remarks by Dr. Eric R. Kandel does not speak in anyway directly with architecture and seems as disconnected as the text. There were enough substantial quotations along with the cover alcolade from Rita Carter ("Mapping the Mind") where I would have hoped that she had written it. This was too much money for the result. If I had not highlighted a few lines I would have returned this for a refund.
