No jacket. Minor ink marks. 1990 Hard Cover. 203 pp. A multidisciplinary progression of Piaget's equilibration, this major work depicts mind/brain as a regulator of equilibratory processes. Parkins describes mind/brain in terms of information representation and processing requirements for learning-based control. He considers a number of psychological processes in terms of his model and also interprets a number of disorders (schizophrenia, depression, epilepsy, and Parkinsonian disorders). Parkins takes a significant step toward an integrated psychology systematically integrating observations and theories from a broad range of psychological disciplines in terms of one principle--equilibration.
