"This film explores the challenge of explaining visual perception. The production includes an overview of the human visual system, illustrated with animated graphics and live action footage and describes, using engaging 'optical illusions, ' the profound technical and philosophical challenges scientists face in attempting to explain perception. The film ends with a thought-provoking discussion of the essential role of human experience in determining what we perceive." -- Container

Neuroscienze ( Book )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in Italian and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Neuroscienze si propone come base di partenza per chi si accinge allo studio di questa disciplina, che per molti rappresenta l'ultima grande frontiera delle scienze biologiche, e ne mette in risalto le sfide intellettuali, ma anche l'incertezza. Il sistema nervoso umano è una componente eccezionale della macchina biologica sia per l'aspetto molecolare e cellulare, sia dal punto di vista sistemico, comportamentale e cognitivo. Questo costituisce di per sé un buon motivo per cercare di comprendere il funzionamento dell'encefalo e delle altre parti del sistema nervoso, a cui si aggiungono gli effetti debilitanti e drammatici delle malattie neurologiche e psichiatriche, che rappresentano un ulteriore stimolo per accelerare le ricerche in questo campo. Come nelle precedenti edizioni, gli autori hanno cercato di suscitare interesse ed entusiasmo per la materia, fornendo anche spunti per la discussione. Nella quarta edizione italiana sono stati completamente rinnovati il capitolo 4. Canali ionici e trasportatori, il capitolo 6. I neurotrasmettitori e i loro recettori, il capitolo 8. La plasticità sinaptica, e le Parti IV. Le continue modificazioni delle strutture e delle funzioni nervose e V. Le funzioni cerebrali complesse. Arricchiscono il volume un'appendice illustrata di neuroanatomia umana e un atlante fotografico del sistema nervoso centrale
