7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A fascinating look at how the brain controls our relationships and romances. Neuroscientists, psychologists, and most men and women readers today have learned that the brain is Grand Central Station for our most erotic associations, memories, and secret desires. The latest research shows that the popular myth is true: Sexual orientation and identity is hard-wired, the result of our neurological predisposition, not a choice or result of socialization. We instinctively crave connection and relationship as an essential part of our well-being, self-esteem, and pleasure. The process of achieving and recovering from orgasm ignites the same pleasure centers in the brain as exercise, music, religion, food, alcohol, and drugs. Sexual desire can be triggered by a thought, a smell, a touch, or the sight of an object of desire. These sensorium are located at different parts of the brain, and can be activated indefinitely into our senior years. Filled with little known and fascinating information about the brain. The third Scientific American book in the series about the brain. The core science and latest research is drawn from the prestigious Scientific American and Scientific American Mind magazines"--

Oceans : a Scientific American reader( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covering nearly three-quarters of our planet, the worlds oceans are a vast and unique ecosystem from which all life on Earth originated. But each year the marine realm is more susceptible to harm by careless exploitation, and as demands for food, waste disposal, transport, and travel increase, the fate of the worlds oceans hangs in the balance. This timely guide offers the nonscientist an opportunity to appreciate the importance of this expansiveand fragilefrontier. With selections chosen for their value in identifying the multiple uses of oceans, their resources, and the hurdles they face as the worlds population continues to expand and consume their resources at a staggering rate, Oceans collects more than thirty thematically arranged articles from the past decade, including recent pieces written in the wake of the 2004 tsunami. The book features articles that investigate the origins of the worlds oceans, the diversity of life in the water, the state of global fisheries, the dangers of natural disasters, and the perils oceans face, whether induced by nature or by humans. With breadth of topics as wide as the ocean is deep, this Scientific American reader will engage general readers interested in the evolution, ecology, and conservation of the oceanic ecosystem and can be used in courses on introductory oceanography, environmental science, and marine biology

Scientific American inventions and discoveries : all the milestones in ingenuity--from the discovery of fire to the invention of the microwave oven by Rodney P Carlisle( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the discovery of fire to the invention of the steam engine and the Pentium chip, Scientific American Inventions and Discoveries documents some of the most important discoveries in the scientific world, as well as the practical innovations that have forever changed the life of the human race. This engagingly written, authoritative book organizes more than 400 lively, detailed entries into chronological, easy-to-browse sections. Rodney Carlisle reveals the fascinating intersection of science and technology through the ages, examining the different styles of creation and innovation. We see how humans acquired an increasing body of ordinary procedures and instruments, from making fire and harvesting crops to living in shelters. Over time, specialists emerged, perfecting and passing down special arts such as carpentry, masonry, and metal smithing. They flourished in antiquity and organized into craft guilds in many of the societies of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. We see how these artisans developed new instruments that helped bring about a refinement of scientific observation, allowing numerous leaps forward in measurement and knowledge of nature. Engineers and inventors changed the nature of production during the Industrial Revolution-moving from shop work to the large-scale factory-and created a host of new devices, from steam railroads to internal combustion engines. As scientific training began to affect the world of technology, a burst of inventions in the early 1900s changed human life more drastically than ever before. And, even as horrific instruments of warfare were born, a host of technologies was introduced in the electronics, nuclear, and biological fields that held out the promise of future peaceful progress. Featuring numerous illustrations and informative primary source sidebars, Scientific American Inventions and Discoveries is essential for anyone who wants to delve into the history of science and technology
