The Single-Neuron Theory: Closing in on the Neural Correlate by Steven Sevush

By Steven Sevush

This booklet provides an enticing account of a provocative new idea which explores how our mind generates awake event and the place this happens. It means that awake adventure occurs no longer on the entire mind point yet on the point of person nerve cells. The suggestion that the mind as an entire is sentient is an phantasm created by way of the beautiful association of the separately wakeful neurons. regardless of appearances on the contrary, unsleeping habit that appears the manufactured from a unmarried macroscopic brain is admittedly the built-in output of a refrain of microscopic minds, every one linked to anyone neuron. the result's a conception that revolutionizes our perception of who and what we are.

The Brain-Shaped Mind by Naomi Goldblum

By Naomi Goldblum

Within the comparable method atomic constructions clarify the actual homes of an item, neuroscientists at the moment are studying concerning the human brain via reading how the neurons within the mind are attached to each other and their surrounding environments. Will mind scientists ever be ready to studying minds? Why are sure issues tougher to recollect than others? The Brain-Shaped brain addresses those and different inquiries to offer a transparent account of the way the constitution of the mind affects the workings of the brain. Naomi Goldblum is a lecturer in psychology at Bar-Ilan college in Ramat Gan, Israel. She has studied neuropsychology with a selected emphasis on cognitive psychology.

The Cognitive Neuroscience of Mind: A Tribute to Michael S. by Patricia A. Reuter-Lorenz, Kathleen Baynes, George R.

By Patricia A. Reuter-Lorenz, Kathleen Baynes, George R. Mangun, Elizabeth A. Phelps

Those essays on various themes within the cognitive neurosciences file at the growth within the box over the two decades of its life and mirror the numerous groundbreaking medical contributions and enduring impression of Michael Gazzaniga, "the godfather of cognitive neuroscience"—founder of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society, founding editor of the magazine of Cognitive Neuroscience , and editor of the most important reference paintings, The Cognitive Neurosciences , now in its fourth version (MIT Press, 2009). The essays, grouped into 4 sections named after 4 of Gazzaniga's books, mix technology and memoir in various proportions, and supply an authoritative survey of analysis in cognitive neuroscience. "The Bisected mind" examines hemispheric subject matters pioneered by means of Gazzaniga firstly of his occupation; "The built-in brain" explores the subject matter of integration through domination; the wide-ranging essays in "The Social mind" tackle topics from genes to neurons to social conversations and networks; the themes explored in "Mind concerns" contain evolutionary biology, method, and ethics. Contributors : Kathleen Baynes, Giovanni Berlucchi, Leo M. Chalupa, Mark D’Esposito, Margaret G. Funnell, Mitchell Glickstein, Scott A. Guerin, Todd F. Heatherton, Steven A. Hillyard, William Hirst, Alan Kingstone, Stephen M. Kosslyn, Marta Kutas, Elisabetta Làdavas, Joseph Ledoux, George R. Mangun, Michael B. Miller, Elizabeth A. Phelps, Steven Pinker, Michael I.

Cognition and Acquired Language Disorders by Richard K. Peach

By Richard K. Peach

This new graduate point textbook, Cognition and bought Language issues: a data Processing Approach, addresses the cognitive features of language and communique. It assembles the newest info in this subject, addressing common cognitive processing for language in adults, the cognitive impairments underlying language issues bobbing up from quite a few neurologic stipulations, and present review and therapy techniques for the administration of those issues. The textual content is prepared utilizing a knowledge processing method of got language problems, and hence should be set except texts that depend upon a extra conventional, syndrome-based method (e.g., stroke, dementia, and stressful mind injury). This technique enables the outline and therapy of received language issues throughout many neurologic teams whilst specific cognitive deficits are pointed out. different valuable positive factors of the textual content contain evaluate and therapy protocols which are in response to present proof. those protocols supply scholars and clinicians a prepared medical source for handling language issues because of deficits in consciousness, reminiscence, linguistic operations, and government services.

  • Unique process-oriented approach organizes content material via cognitive methods rather than via syndromes so that you can follow the data and remedy techniques to anybody of many neurologic teams with an analogous cognitive deficit.
  • Cognitive domain names are defined as they relate to communication instead of separated as they're in lots of different courses the place they're handled as autonomous behaviors.
  • A separate part on common processing contains 5 chapters offering a robust starting place for realizing the criteria that give a contribution to disordered conversation and its management.
  • The evidence-based approach promotes top practices for the best administration of sufferers with cognitive-communication disorders.
  • Coverage of the cognitive elements of communication is helping you meet the criteria for certification in speech-language pathology.
  • A robust writer team contains lead authors who're popular and hugely revered within the educational neighborhood, besides specialist individuals, making sure a entire, complicated scientific text/reference.

The Dyslexic Advantage by Brock L. Eide

By Brock L. Eide

Two neurolearning specialists exhibit the hidden advantages of getting a dyslexic brain.

In this paradigm-shifting publication, neurolearning specialists Drs. Brock and Fernette Eide describe a thrilling new mind technology that finds that dyslexic humans have distinctive mind constitution and association. whereas the diversities are accountable for definite demanding situations with literacy and interpreting, the dyslexic mind additionally provides a predisposition to big talents, and distinctive talents.

While dyslexics commonly fight to decode the written be aware, they generally additionally excel in such parts of reasoning as mechanical (required for architects and surgeons), interconnected (artists and inventors); narrative (novelists and lawyers), and dynamic (scientists and company pioneers). The Dyslexic Advantage offers the 1st entire portrait of dyslexia.

Clinical Applications of Microcomputers in Communication by James L. Fitch

By James L. Fitch

Medical purposes of Microcomputers in verbal exchange problems is a complete reference for the usage of microcomputers within the box of conversation problems. The human-machine interface is mentioned, in addition to notice processing and information processing. using the microcomputer within the analysis and therapy of speech-language pathology can also be reviewed.Comprised of thirteen chapters, this booklet starts with a ancient standpoint of the pc in society and its position within the box of conversation problems. The reader is then brought to desktop and software program, and desktop languages are defined with examples written in simple. next chapters concentrate on the problem that society faces in studying to dwell with expertise; observe processing and information administration; and particular purposes of the pc within the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology. courses which are both commercially to be had or are within the public area are reviewed. the ultimate bankruptcy paints an image of the medical institution of the long run and the position that might be performed by way of the pc. This monograph should be an invaluable source for clinicians and different training pros within the fields of speech pathology and audiology, together with those that be interested in, or have to remain present with, advancements within the medical administration of communique problems.
