Bodily changes in pain, hunger, fear and rage : an account of recent researches into the function of emotional excitement by Walter B Cannon( Book )

101 editions published between 1915 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fear, rage and pain, and the pangs of hunger are all primitive experiences which human beings share with the lower animals. These experiences are properly classed as among the most powerful that determine the action of men and beasts. A knowledge of the conditions which attend these experiences, therefore, is of general and fundamental importance in the interpretation of behavior. During the past four years there has been conducted, in the Harvard Physiological Laboratory, a series of investigations concerned with the bodily changes which occur in conjunction with pain, hunger and the major emotions. A group of remarkable alterations in the bodily economy have been discovered. Because these physiological adaptations are interesting both in themselves and in their interpretation, it has seemed worth while to gather together in convenient form the original accounts of the experiments, which have been published in various American medical and physiological journals. I have, however, attempted to arrange the results and discussions in an orderly and consecutive manner, and I have tried also to eliminate or incidentally to explain the technical terms, so that the exposition will be easily understood by any intelligent reader even though not trained in the medical sciences.

A laboratory course in physiology by Walter B Cannon( Book )

41 editions published between 1910 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To the student of biology and the student of that part of applied biology included in medicine, the laboratory method of learning the functions of the tissues and organs of the animal body has demonstrated its superiority over other methods, not only in impressing vividly the facts of observation, but also in demanding a discipline which furnishes to the student power to go forth with assurance in independent search. That the purposes of laboratory instruction may be served, the attempt has been made to arrange the experiments in this book, both in the larger and smaller divisions of the subject, so as to render answers in an orderly manner to the following questions: -- First. -- Of what activity is an organ or tissue capable? Second. -- How do certain factors condition or modify that activity? An attempt has been made also to arrange the experiments so that facts with widest bearing are observed first"--Preface.

Lectures on conditioned reflexes by Ivan Petrovich Pavlov( Book )

13 editions published between 1928 and 1995 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over a quarter of a century ago Pavlov began, "after persistent deliberation," to study the activity of the higher parts of the brain by physiological methods, mainly through the use of his conditioned reflexes. This book shows the historical development of the subject from the very beginning to the present, and it contains most of the important facts which he has discovered. As the subject is a new and somewhat difficult one, the many repetitions in varying form will probably not be unwelcome to the reader. Because the facts and methods described in the following pages cover most of Pavlov's important work on conditioned reflexes, it seemed worth while to us to make the translation from the original Russian"--Preface.
