Navigating the Maze of Nursing Research Book Excerpt:

An introductory level text for the Australian and New Zealand market, Navigating the Maze of Nursing Research 2e is simple, lucid and down to earth. There are many higher order research texts for health related disciplines but none other specifically aimed at the beginning student who has a limited understanding of what nursing is, let alone research. Navigating the Maze of Nursing Research 2e is interactive and fun to use - not a ‘heavy' text, but brimming with up-to-date ideas and practical hints. The text promotes nurses as ‘knowledge workers', life long learners able to access and broker pertinent information efficiently and effectively. Geared more towards nurses as users of research rather than doers, the text is nevertheless steeped in the premise that nurses do conduct research and lots of it, and that evidence-based practice underpins success. Organised in three sections that address what is nursing knowledge, how is research conducted, and how it is applied in practice, this 2nd edition features contributions from prominent nurse academics with vast research experience. Cornerstone chapters such as ‘Getting the most out of the library' and ‘Surfing the internet' are retained and revised, and important new chapters include ‘Mixed methods research' and ‘What the future holds for nursing research'. Student challenges and information about differing agencies and web site addresses are updated, and the Evolve website expanded to accommodate student activities, test banks and quizzes on the one interactive facility. Updated information about agencies, web site addresses and student challenges. Increased focus on Australian and New Zealand examples, highlighting the work of local nursing scholars. ‘Tips for International Students' integrated throughout. ‘Did you know' question at the beginning of each chapter encourages quizzical and critical thinking. Extensive pedagogy facilitates readability and includes learning objectives, student quotes, key terms chapter abstracts, Evolve icons, resource kits and references in each chapter.

The Cornfield Maze Mystery Book Excerpt:

Across the dull gray sky of a late October afternoon, two girls, standing on a slight rise near a cornfield, fold their arms across their windbreakers. With cheeks aglow from the frosty air, their eyes dance with excitement. Lila and her best friend, Erin, have just decided that today is the day that they will conquer the cornfield maze on the Dunphy's Family Farm. Lila and Erin gleefully push open the wooden gate and enter the cornfield maze. Erin starts running down the path, laughing and yelling that she will go first. She tells Lila that she must count to twenty before she follows. But when the time comes for them to meet up, Lila can't find Erin-she has disappeared! What could have happened to her? Erin can't find her way out of the cornfield, and the darkening sky looks more and more like rain. She is running now, crashing carelessly through the dead corn stalks, too frantic to recoil from the dry leaves whipping her face as she charges along. Unexpectedly, she sees a shadowy form, just ahead, not moving. It stands motionless, partially obscured by the high stalks. She stops, stunned. Will she ever find her way out of the maze and back to Lila? Inspired by the photo above, featuring the author's granddaughters, this story is part reality and part fantasy, recalling a wonderful afternoon spent romping through a large cornfield maze.

Learning and Memory Book Excerpt:

This thoroughly updated edition provides a balanced review of the core methods and the latest research on animal learning and human memory. The relevance of basic principles is highlighted throughout via everyday examples to ignite student interest, along with more traditional examples from human and animal laboratory studies. Individual differences in age, gender, learning style, cultural background, or special abilities (such as the math gifted) are highlighted within each chapter to help students see how the principles may be generalized to other subject populations. The basic processes of learning – such as classical and instrumental conditioning and encoding and storage in long-term memory in addition to implicit memory, spatial learning, and remembering in the world outside the laboratory – are reviewed. The general rules of learning are described along with the exceptions, limitations, and best applications of these rules. The relationship between the fields of neuropsychology and learning and memory is stressed throughout. The relevance of this research to other disciplines is reflected in the tone of the writing and is demonstrated through a variety of examples from education, neuropsychology, rehabilitation, psychiatry, nursing and medicine, I/O and consumer psychology, and animal behavior. Each chapter begins with an outline and concludes with a detailed summary. A website for instructors and students accompanies the book. Updated throughout with new research findings and examples the new edition features: A streamlined presentation for today’s busy students. As in the past, the author supports each concept with a research example and real-life application, but the duplicate example or application now appears on the website so instructors can use the additional material to illustrate the concepts in class. Expanded coverage of neuroscience that reflects the current research of the field including aversive conditioning (Ch. 5) and animal working memory (Ch. 8). More examples of research on student learning that use the same variables discussed in the chapter, but applies them in a classroom or student’s study environment. This includes research that applies encoding techniques to student learning, for example: studying: recommendations from experts (Ch. 1); the benefits of testing (Ch. 9); and Joshua Foer’s Moonwalking with Einstein, on his quest to become a memory expert (Ch. 6). More coverage of unconscious learning and knowledge (Ch. 11). Increased coverage of reinforcement and addiction (Ch. 4), causal and language learning (Ch. 6), working memory (WM) and the effects of training on WM, and the comparative evolution of WM in different species (Ch. 8), and genetics and learning (Ch. 12).

The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Cognition Book Excerpt:

In the past decade, the field of comparative cognition has grown and thrived. No less rigorous than purely behavioristic investigations, examinations of animal intelligence are useful for scientists and psychologists alike in their quest to understand the nature and mechanisms of intelligence. Extensive field research of various species has yielded exciting new areas of research, integrating findings from psychology, behavioral ecology, and ethology in a unique and wide-ranging synthesis of theory and research on animal cognition. The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Cognition contains sections on perception and illusion, attention and search, memory processes, spatial cognition, conceptualization and categorization, problem solving and behavioral flexibility, and social cognition processes including findings in primate tool usage, pattern learning, and counting. The authors have incorporated findings and theoretical approaches that reflect the current state of the field. This comprehensive volume will be a must-read for students and scientists who want to know about the state of the art of the modern science of comparative cognition.

Intelligent Image Processing in Prolog Book Excerpt:

After a slow and somewhat tentative beginning, machine vision systems are now finding widespread use in industry. So far, there have been four clearly discernible phases in their development, based upon the types of images processed and how that processing is performed: (1) Binary (two level) images, processing in software (2) Grey-scale images, processing in software (3) Binary or grey-scale images processed in fast, special-purpose hardware (4) Coloured/multi-spectral images Third-generation vision systems are now commonplace, although a large number of binary and software-based grey-scale processing systems are still being sold. At the moment, colour image processing is commercially much less significant than the other three and this situation may well remain for some time, since many industrial artifacts are nearly monochrome and the use of colour increases the cost of the equipment significantly. A great deal of colour image processing is a straightforward extension of standard grey-scale methods. Industrial applications of machine vision systems can also be sub divided, this time into two main areas, which have largely retained distinct identities: (i) Automated Visual Inspection (A VI) (ii) Robot Vision (RV) This book is about a fifth generation of industrial vision systems, in which this distinction, based on applications, is blurred and the processing is marked by being much smarter (i. e. more "intelligent") than in the other four generations.

The Idea of the Labyrinth from Classical Antiquity through the Middle Ages Book Excerpt:

Ancient and medieval labyrinths embody paradox, according to Penelope Reed Doob. Their structure allows a double perspective—the baffling, fragmented prospect confronting the maze-treader within, and the comprehensive vision available to those without. Mazes simultaneously assert order and chaos, artistry and confusion, articulated clarity and bewildering complexity, perfected pattern and hesitant process. In this handsomely illustrated book, Doob reconstructs from a variety of literary and visual sources the idea of the labyrinth from the classical period through the Middle Ages. Doob first examines several complementary traditions of the maze topos, showing how ancient historical and geographical writings generate metaphors in which the labyrinth signifies admirable complexity, while poetic texts tend to suggest that the labyrinth is a sign of moral duplicity. She then describes two common models of the labyrinth and explores their formal implications: the unicursal model, with no false turnings, found almost universally in the visual arts; and the multicursal model, with blind alleys and dead ends, characteristic of literary texts. This paradigmatic clash between the labyrinths of art and of literature becomes a key to the metaphorical potential of the maze, as Doob's examination of a vast array of materials from the classical period through the Middle Ages suggests. She concludes with linked readings of four "labyrinths of words": Virgil's Aeneid, Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy, Dante's Divine Comedy, and Chaucer's House of Fame, each of which plays with and transforms received ideas of the labyrinth as well as reflecting and responding to aspects of the texts that influenced it. Doob not only provides fresh theoretical and historical perspectives on the labyrinth tradition, but also portrays a complex medieval aesthetic that helps us to approach structurally elaborate early works. Readers in such fields as Classical literature, Medieval Studies, Renaissance Studies, comparative literature, literary theory, art history, and intellectual history will welcome this wide-ranging and illuminating book.

The Digital God Book Excerpt:

As humans charge up the steep slope of technological innovation, digital age media increasingly shapes our perception of everything--even spiritual matters. The next stage of spiritual development may be the product of a digital interface between our own image of the divine, virtual reality technology that produces real perceptions, and with devices that stimulate areas of the brain associated with spiritual experience. This book explores the influence of digital media on spirituality and the impact of the digital environment on our experience of the spiritual world. The author predicts a future in which digital technology and neuroscience will combine to create a new understanding of the divine.
