Divided brains : the biology and behaviour of brain asymmetries by Lesley J Rogers( )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,081 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Biology and Behaviour of Brain Asymmetries Asymmetry of the brain and behaviour (lateralization) has traditionally been considered unique to humans. However, research has shown that this phenomenon is widespread throughout the vertebrate kingdom and found even in some invertebrate species. A similar basic plan of organisation exists across vertebrates"--
Lateralized brain functions : methods in human and non-human species( )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores both simple and sophisticated techniques used in the study of different types of lateralization of brain and behavior. Research in this field increases our understanding of various brain functions in humans, other vertebrate species, and invertebrates. The book is divided into five parts: behavioral methods; neurobiological methods; electroencephalographic, imaging, and neuro-stimulation methods; genetic techniques; and development of lateralization. Part I addresses measuring lateralization by scoring behavior induced by inputs to one or the other side of the brain in a range of species. Part II covers neurobiological methods used to reveal lateralization, such as lesion studies, electrophysiology and pharmacology, early gene expression, and new optogenetic methods. Part III looks at imaging techniques, electroencephalographic techniques, and transcranial stimulation to reveal lateralization. Part IV describes techniques used to study the role of genes in the development and establishment of brain asymmetry in humans and other species. Lastly, Part V refers to methods used in the study of development of lateralization through the manipulation of sensory exposure, hormone levels, and in model systems. In Neuromethods series style, chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your own laboratory. Cutting-edge and thorough, Lateralized Brain Function: Methods in Human and Non-Human Species is a valuable resource for investigating lateralization in a broad range of species and provides excellent advice for both new and veteran researchers

Il cervello a scuola : neuroscienze e educazione tra verità e falsi miti by John G Geake( )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in Italian and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In che modo il cervello ci permette di imparare? Perché alcuni bambini hanno difficoltà di apprendimento? Come la ricerca neuroscientifica può essere applicata al curricolo e alla didattica? A queste e altre domande John Geake, forte di una lunga esperienza sia come insegnante che come neuroscienziato, risponde con chiarezza e rigore. Sfatando falsi miti e pregiudizi, l'autore dimostra a insegnanti, dirigenti scolastici, educatori come le neuroscienze possono aiutarli nel loro lavoro, fornendo in ogni capitolo esempi pratici da applicare in classe e studi di caso tratti da esperienze reali di insegnamento
