Anomia Book Excerpt:

Anomia is the inability to access spoken names for objects, most often associated with the elderly or those with brain damage to the left hemisphere. Anomia offers the state-of-the-art review of disorders of naming, written by acknowledged experts from around the world, approached from both clinical and theoretical viewpoints. Goodglass, known around the world for his research in aphasia and speech pathology, edits this first book devoted exclusively to naming and its disorders. Wingfield is known for his classic studies of lexical processing in aphasic and normal speakers. The book includes comprehensive literature reviews, a summary of relevant research data, as well as astudy of recent advances in cognitive analysis and anatomic findings. Anomia is an immensely useful work for all those involved in the study of language, particularly those in cognitive neuroscience, neurology, speech pathology, and linguistics. Devoted entirely to naming and its disorders Includes up-to-date descriptions of advances in cognitive analysis Contains approaches from both clinical and theoretical viewpoints Brings together the top researchers from the U.S., England, and Italy

Category Specificity in Brain and Mind Book Excerpt:

Some of the most fascinating deficits in neuropsychology concern the failure to recognise common objects from one semantic category, such as living things, when there is no such difficulty with objects from another, such as non-living things. Over the past twenty years, numerous cases of these 'category specific' recognition and naming problems have been documented and several competing theories have been developed to account for the patients' disorders. Category Specificity in Brain and Mind draws together the neuropsychological literature on category-specific impairments, with research on how children develop knowledge about different categories, functional brain imaging work and computational models of object recognition and semantic memory. The chapters are written by internationally leading psychologists and neuroscientists and the result is a review of the most up-to-date thinking on how knowledge about different categories is acquired and organized in the mind, and where it is represented in the human brain. The text will be essential reading for advanced undergraduates and researchers in the field of category specificity and a rich source of information for neuropsychologists, experimental and developmental psychologists, cognitive scientists and philosophers.

Fundamentals of Neural Network Modeling Book Excerpt:

Provides an introduction to the neural network modeling of complex cognitive and neuropsychological processes. Over the past few years, computer modeling has become more prevalent in the clinical sciences as an alternative to traditional symbol-processing models. This book provides an introduction to the neural network modeling of complex cognitive and neuropsychological processes. It is intended to make the neural network approach accessible to practicing neuropsychologists, psychologists, neurologists, and psychiatrists. It will also be a useful resource for computer scientists, mathematicians, and interdisciplinary cognitive neuroscientists. The editors (in their introduction) and contributors explain the basic concepts behind modeling and avoid the use of high-level mathematics. The book is divided into four parts. Part I provides an extensive but basic overview of neural network modeling, including its history, present, and future trends. It also includes chapters on attention, memory, and primate studies. Part II discusses neural network models of behavioral states such as alcohol dependence, learned helplessness, depression, and waking and sleeping. Part III presents neural network models of neuropsychological tests such as the Wisconsin Card Sorting Task, the Tower of Hanoi, and the Stroop Test. Finally, part IV describes the application of neural network models to dementia: models of acetycholine and memory, verbal fluency, Parkinsons disease, and Alzheimer's disease. Contributors J.

The Present Book Deals With The Brain-Mind, Based On The Findings Of Studies Using Functional Neuroimaging, Cognitive Electrophysiological And Clinical Neuropsychological Techniques. The Meta-Analysis Draws On The Emergence Of The Mind From The Brain And The Control Of Mental Activities By The Neural Systems. Nevertheless, Interpretations That Determine The Contents Of Processing And Their Qualitative Judgements Are Not Limited By The Brain Or The Realities Of The World. It Is Possible To Create A Subjective World, Which Is Not In Conformity With Objective Realities. The Environment Controls The Brain And The Brain Has Learnt To Internalize Such Controls And Selectively Use Them For Dealing With Various Environmental Exigencies. The Human Brain Has Further Learnt To Self-Define Purposes, Goals, Self-Programme And Perform Actions For Achieving The Self-Defined Goals, And Has Become Increasingly Independent Of The Environmental Controls.Development Of Language Skills In The Brain Has Led To Extensive Verbal Transcoding Of Perceptions, Responses, Actions, Emotions, And Experiences, As Well As To The Creation Of New Relationships At The Conceptual And Reality Levels. The Same Neural Functional Systems Monitor The Process Of Creation Of Thoughts, The Mental Imageries, And Their Contents, Which In Turn Has Led To The Emergence Of Awareness Of The Processes And Contents Of The Transcoding. Experience Is A Product Of Sensory-Motor Events, Emotions, Their Cognitive Interpretations, And Awareness. Despite The Possibilities And The Presence Of Erroneous As Well As Out Of Reality Interpretations, Experience Offers The Highest Levels Of Personal Contact With Reality, Which Makes Man Crave And Explore For It.The Present Book Is Thus A Comprehensive Study On Brain-Mind And It Is Hoped That It Will Prove Useful And Interesting To The Students, Researchers, And Teachers Of Neuropsychology. The Detailed References Included In The Book Will Facilitate Pursuing The Studies Further. Its Language And Approach To The Subject Matter Is Reader-Friendly And Easily Comprehensible.

The Handbook of Adult Language Disorders Book Excerpt:

The Handbook of Adult Language Disorders is the essential guide to the scientific and clinical tenets of aphasia study and treatment. It focuses on how language breaks down after focal brain damage, what patterns of impairment reveal about normal language, and how recovery can be optimally facilitated. It is unique in that it reviews studies from the major disciplines in which aphasia research is conducted—cognitive neuropsychology, linguistics, neurology, neuroimaging, and speech-language pathology—as they apply to each topic of language. For each language domain, there are chapters devoted to theory and models of the language task, the neural basis of the language task (focusing on recent neuroimaging studies) and clinical diagnosis and treatment of impairments in that domain. In addition, there is broad coverage of approaches to investigation and treatment from leading experts, with several authors specializing in two or more disciplines. This second edition focuses on characterizing the cognitive and neural processes that account for each variant of aphasia as a first step toward developing effective rehabilitation, given that aphasia is one of the most common and disabling consequences of stroke. The best and most authoritative handbook in the field, The Handbook of Adult Language Disorders is the definitive reference for clinicians and researchers working in the scientific investigation of aphasia.

Reading is a unique human ability that has become very pivotal for functioning in our world today. As modern societies rely extensively on literacy skills, and as reading disabilities have profound personal, economic and social consequences, it is surprising that we have a very underdeveloped scientific understanding of the neural basis of reading and visual word recognition in the normal brain. This book fills this gap in the literature by addressing some of the fundamental questions in reading research.
