Description : The aim of this new edition is, once again, to provide a readable, up-to-date book for use in undergraduate, graduate, and medical school courses in neuroscience. As in previous editions, the emphasis is on experiments made by electrical recordings, molecular and cellular biological techniques, and behavioral studies on the nervous system, from simple reflexes to cognitive functions. Lines of research are followed from the inception of an idea to new findings being made in laboratories and clinics today. A major change is that this edition begins with the anatomy and physiology of the visual system, from light receptors in the retina to the perception of images. This allows the reader to appreciate right away how nerve cells act as the building blocks for perception. Detailed mechanisms of signaling are then described in later chapters. All chapters have been rewritten, and new chapters added. From Neuron to Brain will be of interest to anyone, with or without a specialized background in biological sciences, who is curious about the workings of the nervous system.
Description : 5,600 Exam Prep questions and answers. Ebooks, Textbooks, Courses, Books Simplified as questions and answers by Rico Publications. Very effective study tools especially when you only have a limited amount of time. They work with your textbook or without a textbook and can help you to review and learn essential terms, people, places, events, and key concepts.
Description : Information about perception and memory is accumulating rapidly in both basic and clinical neuroscience, and this progress has been made using a variety of approaches while drawing jointly on the traditions of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropsychology. In order to disseminate research occurring in leading laboratories around the world, an international symposium on "Brain Mechanisms of Perception and Memory: From Neuron to Behavior" was held in Toyama, Japan, in October 1991. Planned in conjunction with this important meeting, this volume presents the work of over 40 eminent scientists from around the world. Their research covers many topics, including such core issues as the perception of form, perception of motion, memory and the limbic system, the neocortex, and neural plasticity. A prominent area of discussion at the symposium, and one which figures prominently in this volume, is work with nonhuman primates, especially useful in the study of perception and memory. The breadth of coverage of this volume in conjunction with its extensive studies of nonhuman primates makes this book a necessary reference for those interested in current perspectives on brain mechanisms of perception and memory. Neuroscientists, neuropsychologists, cognitive and physiological psychologists will find this authoritative, state-of-the-art review important and informative reading.
Description : A comprehensive, integrated, and accessible textbook presenting core neuroscientific topics from a computational perspective, tracing a path from cells and circuits to behavior and cognition.
Description : A rich source of information about human voluntary movement in health and disease can be found in this book. The most esteemed researchers in their respective fields bring you up-to-date articles. Their collected work combines fundamental research in the life sciences with clinical neuroscience in a unique overview. The interdisciplinary aspects of motor physiology uncover a wealth of information for researchers from neighboring disciplines. For example, oculomotor research, vestibular research, equilibrium, sensory research and cognition, evolution, synaptic and elementary processes and the neurological sciences can be discovered.
Description : A highly original theory of how the mind-brain works, based on the author's study of single neuronal cells. Color Figures from the book are now available online—click the title for more information.
Description : Completely revised and enlarged with six new chapters, the second edition of "Neurons and Networks" is an introduction not just to neurobiology, but to all of behavioral neuroscience. It is an ideal text for first- or second-year college students with minimal college science exposure.
