The history of neuroscience in autobiography( )

14 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Publisher-supplied data) This book is the second volume of autobiographical essays by distinguished senior neuroscientists it is part of the first collection of neuroscience writing that is primarily autobiographical. As neuroscience is a young discipline, the contributors to this volume are truly pioneers of scientific research on the brain and spinal cord. This collection of fascinating essays should inform and inspire students and working scientists alike. The general reader interested in science may also find the essays absorbing, as they are essentially human stories about commitment and the pursuit of knowledge. The contributors included in this volume are: Lloyd M. Beidler, Arvid Carlsson, Donald R. Griffin, Roger Guillemin, Ray Guillery, Masao Ito. Martin G. Larrabee, Jerome Lettvin, Paul D. MacLean, Brenda Milner, Karl H. Pribram, Eugene Roberts and Gunther Stent
Limbic mechanisms : the continuing evolution of the limbic system concept : [proceedings of the Limbic System Symposium held at the University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, November 5-6, 1976, as a satellite to the sixth annual meeting of the Society of Neuroscience] by Kenneth E Livingston( Book )

10 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume records the proceedings of a Limbic System Sympos ium held at the University of Toronto, November 5-6th, 1976 as a satellite event to the Sixth Annual Meeting of the Society of Neuroscience. The Symposium was designed in part as a tribute to James Papez on the 40th anniversary of the publication of his epochal paper "A Proposed Mechanism of Emotion". Papers by MacLean, Yakovlev, and Angevine provide personal recollections of Papez and an assessment of the significant contri bution he made to breaking down the still formidable barriers that separate our concepts of brain, mind, emotion, and behavior. Against this background subsequent speakers presented new information that further illuminates the anatomical, physiological and biochemical mechanisms underlying limbic system function. Viewed in juxtaposition this new information from "disparate" fields of neuroscience provides an increasingly coherent picture of the neuronal organization subserving a dynamic limbic system that we can now begin to visualize in operational and transactional terms. The final section of the symposium focusses on the recently identified "kindling" phenomenon which is viewed as a general model of neural plasticity and more particularly as a model of experi mentally induced limbic system dysfunction. Using this model it is possible to display, analyse, and experimentally manipulate long lasting changes in limbic system activity, which develop over ex tended periods of time and are expressed in a variety of behavioral end points involving learning and memory, seizure activity, and changes in emotionality and behavior
Modulators, mediators, and specifiers in brain function : interactions of neuropeptides, cyclic nucleotides, and phosphorproteins in mechanisms underlying neuronal activity, behavior, and neuropsychiatric disorders( Book )

5 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is an outcome of a satellite symposium held on November 4th and 5th, 1978, at the Missouri Institute of Psychiatry, St. Louis, in conjunction with the eighth annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience. The symposium was planned and organized in order to provide information which may help in narrowing the gap between data obtained by investigators engaged in basic neuroscience research and the clinical implications of these findings. The empirical introduction of psychopharmacological agents to clinical use in the early 1950's facilitated investigations aimed at elucidating basic mechanisms that underlie brain function and behavior. In recent years, we have witnessed developments in the opposite direction; discoveries in the laboratories of researchers in the basic neurosciences have produced new approaches in treatment of the mentally ill patient. Receptors, the existence of which had heretofore been largely based on hypotheses, have been shown as entities which can be identified, isolated, and studied in the test tube. The complexity of receptor function has become apparent. In addition to containing binding sites for a specific neurotransmitter, the receptor exists as part of a macromolecular complex the activity of which may be modulated by neuroactive peptides and mediated by the generation of cyclic nucleotides. The cyclic nucleotides appear to exert their physiological effects by regulating protein phosphorylation-dephosphorylation cycles. Different specific phosphoproteins control metabolic events in the cell interior. In addition, membrane-bound phosphoproteins may play a role in the regulation of receptor function, and this process may be regulated by neuropeptides. Thus, the receptor, when studied as a functional entity, may be analyzed as a multiplicity of interactions between binding sites, transmitters, modulators, mediators and specifiers in the nervous system. This book is concerned with recent studies which have sought to define the roles of neuropeptides, cyclic nucleotides, and phosphoproteins in neural function. These subjects are introduced in the first section of the volume, their potential mechanisms of action are discussed in a second section, and a third section is devoted to studies on the relevance of these systems to the etiology and treatment of some neuropsychiatric disorders. The experimental approaches described by the authors include physiological, neurochemical, pharmacological, behavioral, and clinical investigations, and clearly demonstrate the multi-disciplinary nature of current research in neuroscience

The physiological control of mammalian vocalization by John D Newman( Book )

6 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To the majority of biologists, the physiological control of mammalian vocalizations is only a small part of the large field of motor physiology. It is indeed a very specialized part, and the number of scientists dealing with it is relatively small. Still, it is an autonomous subject embracing more than the motor control of the body and is, therefore, by far more complex. Anatomically, essential cerebral structures involved in the control of gross and fine movements of the mammalian body seem to participate in the control of the voice as well. The central control system, however, as well as the larynx (the primary effector organ), possess features not found in the remaining motor system. An example is the perfect synergism of the many muscles which control the m. vocaZis, not to speak of the speed of successions in which this occurs. Furthermore, this muscle, similar to the facial muscles, is segmentally adjustable independently of the joints. The most remarkable feature of the central control area, however, seems to be the effector organ's manifold direct and indirect dependence on the limbic system of the brain. This makes the voice--like no other motor organ (with the partial exception of the facial musculature)--the chief organ for the expression of emotion and the indicator of behavioral states. Except in man, the voice is in­ dependent of neocortical control. Animal vocalizations are species­ typical and genetically programmed. Ethologically, they belong to the behavioral class of fixed action patterns

The Vestibular system : function and morphology by Torquato Gualtierotti( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vestibular physiology has acquired new interest in the past few years. The development of fast aircraft, beginning during the Second World War and continuing through modern supersonic jets and space travel, has increased dramatically the acceleration range to which man is subjected, from prolonged weightlessness to several gs. The labyrinth measures all kinds of acceleration, including gravity. and therefore has taken on particular impor­ tance in the study of human health in the Space Age. It is understandable. then, that NASA sponsored the Symposium on Vestibular Function and Morphology. a satellite of the Eighth Annual Meeting of the Society of Neuroscience. held October 30-November 1. 1978, at the University of Pittsburgh, which also supported the symposium. The present volume was developed from papers originally presented there. My strategy in editing this book has been to focus upon the vestibular end organ and its direct connections. both peripheral and central, in order to as­ sure a coherent discussion of the basics of vestibular function, structure, and ultrastructure. Fortunately, it was possible to secure the contributions of a number of outstanding investigators from both the United States and abroad, including functionally oriented morphologists. ultrastructuralists, biophysicists, and vestibular physiologists. The result is a comprehensive discussion of the main mechanisms of the labyrinth: the transduction pro­ cess at the receptor level, in the semicircular canals, and in the utricular and saccular maculae; the information transfer through neuronal pathways to the nuclei and the cerebellum; and the general organization of the system
