Human evolution : a neuropsychological perspective by John L Bradshaw( Book )

23 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book attempts to integrate across a wide range of disciplines an evolutionary view of human psychology, with particular reference to language, praxis and aesthetics. A chapter on evolution from the appearance of life to the earliest mammals is followed by one which examines the appearance of primates, hominids and the advent of bipedalism. There follows a more detailed account of the various species of Homo, the morphology and origin of modern H. sapiens sapiens as seen from the archaeological/palaeontological and molecular-biological perspectives. The origins of art and an aesthetic sense in the Acheulian and Mousterian through to the Upper Palaeolithic are seen in the context of the psychology of art. Two chapters on language address its nature and realization centrally and peripherally, the prehistory and neuropsychology of speech, and evidence for speech and/or language in our hominid ancestors. A chapter on tool use and praxis examines such behavior in other species, primate and non-primate, the neurology of praxis and its possible relation to language. Encephalization and the growth of the brain, phylogenetically and ontogenetically, and its relationship to intellectual capacity leads on finally to a consideration of intelligence, social intelligence, consciousness and self-awareness. A final chapter reviews the issues covered. The book, of around 70,000 words of text, includes over 500 references over half of which date from 1994 or later."--Jacket

Developmental disorders of the frontostriatal system : neuropsychological, neuropsychiatric, and evolutionary perspectives by John L Bradshaw( Book )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book the author discusses a range of common neurodevelopmental disorders affecting young people - autism, depression, schizophrenia, ADHD, Tourette's syndrome and obsessive compulsive disorder - from the unique perspective of their proposed common origin in the function and dysfunction of the brain's frontostriatal system. It is argued that these disorders have much in common with each other in their phenomenology, co-morbidity, genetics and neuropathology. Throughout the book, the author systematically compares and contrasts them from a biological, clinical and evolutionary standpoint, viewing them as extensions of normal personality attributes, which, in less extreme form, may possess certain behavioural advantages, explaining their persistence in the general population. Initial chapters cover the anatomy and physiology of the frontostriatal system, and the distinction between neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental disorders, while the final chapter offers an integrative interpretation and comparison." "The result is a discussion of these disorders that draws upon biology, genetics, neuropsychology, neuropathology, neuroimaging, and clinical presentation and treatment, and presents a controversial theoretical appraisal of the very concept of neuropsychiatric dysfunction. It will be of interest to advanced students, researchers and practitioners in neuropsychology, neuropsychiatry, psychiatry, and clinical psychology."--Jacket

Developmental disorders of the brain by Nicole Rinehart( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developmental Disorders of the Brain: Brain and Behaviour addresses disabilities that occur or have their roots in the early, developmental phase of life which are of utmost concern to parents, siblings, carers and teachers. This text describes the latest clinical and behavioral findings of disorders which largely or entirely involve the frontostriatal (basal ganglia) system including Tourette's, Obsessive-Compulsive and Attention-Deficit-Hyperactivity disorders, Schizophrenia, Autism, gambling and addiction, depression, and Conduct, Developmental Motor Co-ordination, and language disorders. Examples of disorders involving the frontocerebellar are also described such as Asperger's disorder, Williams, Fragile X, and Cerebellar Cognitive Affective syndromes, and Friedreich Ataxia. This book also discusses the relevant anatomy, physiology and pathology, and some of the major functions mediated by affected or relevant structures, together with accounts of the latest recording, brain imaging and stimulating techniques related to these kinds of disorders. Covering both frontostriatal and frontocerebellar, systems which control and direct normal behavior, and which can fail with often distressing consequences during development, as well as addressing behavioural, clinical, pathophysiological and technical aspects, this text is vital to understanding, diagnosis and management of developmental disorders of the brain. This text will be of great interest to clinicians, researchers, teachers and parents
Degenerative disorders of the brain by Darren R Hocking( )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covering a wide range of diverse age-related disorders, Degenerative Disorders of the Brain addresses disabilities that occur or have their roots in the later stages of life. The book brings together an internationally recognised group of contributors to discuss frontostriatal, fronto-cerebellar and other major brain systems and structures which control and direct normal behaviour, and which can fail during the aging process, as well as addressing behavioural, clinical, pathophysiological and technical aspects. Discussing the latest clinical and behavioural findings of disorders which are largely, though not necessarily entirely, age related, including Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, Parkinson's disease and related disorders, and Huntington's disease, the book covers information vital to the understanding, diagnosis, and management of degenerative disorders of the brain. It also considers the role of epigenetics, neural plasticity, and environmental enrichment in neurodegenerative disorders alongside the role of ground-breaking intervention methods, including transcranial magnetic stimulation and deep brain stimulation. Degenerative Disorders of the Brain will be of great interest to, and use for, clinicians, researchers, students, lecturers, and affected individuals and their relatives
Reflections of a neuropsychologist : brushes with brains by John L Bradshaw( )

2 editions published in 2018 in Undetermined and English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reflections of a Neuropsychologist: Brushes with Brains follows the life of an influential neuropsychologist's fascinating and varied career. Unique in its autobiographical approach, it features coverage of research into human evolution, archaeology and neurology. Beginning with his earliest memories (and implications for memory processes), John L. Bradshawreflects on his archaeological expeditions preceding his primary career as a physiological psychologist and a behavioural neuroscientist. His influential research covers such rare neurological disorders as Huntingtons disease, Friedreich ataxia and Williams syndrome, and more common maladies like Parkinsons and Alzheimers diseases, stroke, Fragile X, Tourettes syndrome, obsessive compulsive and attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, schizophrenia, autism and depression. His fascinating personal experiences illustrating scientific discoveries will entertain, enthuse, encourage and inspire, and provide established research scientists and practising clinicians with a unique road map."--Provided by publisher

The Spatial Coherence of Electron Wavefunctions and the Transition from Miniband to Stark-Ladder Electric Field Regimes in InGaAs/InAlAs-on-InP Superlattices( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five In0.53Ga0.47As/In0.52Al0.48As-on-InP superlattices of various well-to-barrier ratios and miniband widths have been studied by low-temperature photoluminescence, photocurrent, and differential photocurrent spectroscopies. These techniques provide a means of measuring the spatial coherence length of electron wavefunctions in the superlattices. We find that the onset of Wannier-Stark localization occurs when the well-to-well potential drop within the superlattice is between 1.1 and 1.43 times the low-temperature photoluminescence line width for all samples studied. Furthermore, the photoluminescence line width is accurately describable in terms of a simple model for alloy broadening. These findings confirm an intuitive picture for the transition between the miniband and Wannier-Stark electric field regimes in In0.53Ga0.48As/In0.52Al0.48As-on-InP superlattices
Large-Diameter InGaAs/AlGaAs Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers with Low Threshold Current Density Fabricated Using a Simple Chemical Etch Process( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We have demonstrated threshold current densities below 800 A/sq cm in large-diameter (75 micrometers <d<150 micrometers vertical-cavity surface- emitting lasers fabricated from an epitaxial structure containing a single In(0. 2)Ga(0.8)As quantum well in a one-wavelength-long Fabry-Perot resonant cavity. The fabrication process uses a circular Au/Cr/Au disk as both the p-type contact and the mask for chemically etching individual diodes

Lateral Asymmetries in Human Evolution by John L Bradshaw( )

1 edition published in 1989 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Lateral asymmetries are not confined to humans. Palaeozoic trilobites and calcichordates are now known to have been asymmetrical; song control in passerines is vested in the left cerebral hemisphere; learning which is lateralized to the left forebrain of chicks includes imprinting, visual discrimination learning and auditory habituation, while responses to novelty, attack and copulation are activated by the right; in rats the right hemisphere is involved in emotional behavior and spatial discriminations, and there are numerous other behavioral, anatomical and pharmacological asymmetries; the left hemisphere of the female mouse is superior at processing its pups' calls, and there are reports of behavioral asymmetries in impala, cats and dogs. Anatomical asymmetries in the primate brain, from monkeys upwards, are matched by increasing evidence of behavioral asymmetries in visual pattern discrimination, discrimination of species-specific calls, and handedness. We discuss the interaction of preexisting behavioral and brain asymmetries with the evolution in hominids of an upright bipedal posture and tool use, and the origins of language, and conclude that there may be a continuity with earlier species of our two most obvious asymmetries, language lateralization and hand preferences. There may be an ancient left-brain specialization for sensory and motor discrimination learning, which is complemented by a relegation to the right of primitive spatial and emotional functions
