Encyclopedia of the human brain by V. S Ramachandran( )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the past decade, enormous strides have been made in understanding the human brain. The advent of sophisticated new imaging techniques (e.g. PET, MRI, MEG, etc.) and new behavioral testing procedures have revolutionized our understanding of the brain, and we now know more about the anatomy, functions, and development of this organ than ever before. However, much of this knowledge is scattered across scientific journals and books in a diverse group of specialties: psychology, neuroscience, medicine, etc. The Encyclopedia of the Human Brain places all information in a single source and contains clearly written summaries on what is known of the human brain. Covering anatomy, physiology, neuropsychology, clinical neurology, neuropharmacology, evolutionary biology, genetics, and behavioral science, this four-volume encyclopedia contains over 200 peer reviewed signed articles from experts around the world. The Encyclopedia articles range in size from 5-30 printed pages each, and contain a definition paragraph, glossary, outline, and suggested readings, in addition to the body of the article. Lavishly illustrated, the Encyclopedia includes over 1000 figures, many in full color. Managing both breadth and depth, the Encyclopedia is a must-have reference work for life science libraries and researchers investigating the human brain

Filling-in : from perceptual completion to cortical reorganization by Luiz Pessoa( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The best example of filling-in involves the blind spot, a region of the retina devoid of photoreceptors. While this phenomenon is common in the visual domain, it is argued by contributors to this book that forms of filling-in also take place in other sensory modalities
The claustrum : structural, functional, and clinical neuroscience by John R Smythies( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present day is witnessing an explosion of our understanding of how the brain works at all levels, in which complexity is piled on complexity, and mechanisms of astonishing elegance are being continually discovered. This process is most developed in the major areas of the brain, such as the cortex, thalamus, and striatum. The Claustrum instead focuses on a small, remote, and, until recently, relatively unknown area of the brain. In recent years, researchers have come to believe that the claustrum is concerned with consciousness, a bold hypothesis supported by the claustrum's two-w

This work, edited by Bellamy Printz, of Cleveland Public Art, is a transcription of Spectrum, the Lockwood Thompson Dialogues at the Cleveland Public Library, two public programs held in 2005. Spectrum is a program of public conversations focusing on issues that impact visual and popular culture, presented by the Library in partnership with Cleveland Public Art. The purpose of the forum is to generate innovative, unexplored, and provocative dialogues that will become part of Cleveland?s cultural inventory. Jaron Lanier, computer scientist, composer, and visual artist from Berkeley, California was the moderator for both programs. In April he held a public conversation with Dr. Vilayanur S. Ramachandran, a scientist interested in art and the brain. The discussion topic was learning to appreciate the brain in new ways because of new technologies for looking at the brain. In October he held a second public conversation with Paul D. Miller, also known as DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid, talking about music and the implications of technology, internet, and digital media on contemporary culture

Le cerveau fait de l'esprit : enquêtes sur les neurones miroirs by V. S Ramachandran( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le neurobiologiste Vilayanur Ramachandran propose dans ce livre une réflexion sur ce qui distinguerait l'humain. S'appuyant sur des cas étranges, tel ce patient qui désire être amputé d'un membre sain, Ramachandran brosse un portrait global et intuitif du cerveau, et de ce que ses dysfontionnements révèlent de son évolution. A la manière de Sherlock Holmes, il multiplie les indices pour bâtir des théories générales solides et étayées. Parmi ces découvertes, une large place est accordée aux neurones miroirs, des cellules qui s'activent aussi bien quand nous entreprenons une action que lorsque nous observons quelqu'un d'autre faire de même. Le développement des réseaux de neurones miroirs constituerait le fondement biologique de l'humanisation, qui serait donc une rupture brutale plutôt qu'un continuum allant des primates à l'humain
