Davis examines the various aspects of language in this engrossing and informative book. Specifically, he charts the rise of our language from its Proto-Indo-European origins and then summarizes the mechanics of speech and the elements of language. He also presents a fascinating journey into the human brain that offers clues about the biological roots of language. Davis outlines key theories and research that demonstrate how language is created, stored, and retrieved in the brain

Alternate realities : how science shapes our vision of the world by Joel Davis( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science is a shatterer of worlds, exploding our worldview and then creating it anew. This poetic work traces how our ever-increasing knowledge of science shapes the way we see the world and the universe, and colors our basic sense of reality. Science writer Joel Davis depicts how the interplay of man's fertile imagination coupled with startling scientific discoveries has not only contributed to greater advances, but to new concepts of reality itself. Davis takes us on a voyage through time as he vividly paints a sweeping picture of reality at critical points in history through today. He recounts in detail the revolutionary contributions made by courageous and brilliant thinkers from Galileo and Newton to Hubble and Wheeler - people who, through their flair for insight and invention, dared to rearrange our place in the solar system and stretch our concept of a universe to an immense, awesome chasm

Single neuron computation by Thomas M McKenna( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and Italian and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains twenty-two original contributions that provide a comprehensive overview of computational approaches to understanding a single neuron structure. The focus on cellular-level processes is twofold. From a computational neuroscience perspective, a thorough understanding of the information processing performed by single neurons leads to an understanding of circuit- and systems-level activity. From the standpoint of artificial neural networks (ANNs), a single real neuron is as complex an operational unit as an entire ANN, and formalizing the complex computations performed by real neurons is essential to the design of enhanced processor elements for use in the next generation of ANNs
