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 )

From the macrocosm of the universe to the microcosm of the quantum world, Davis shows how our vision of reality evolves and adapts. Just as he vividly evokes a graphic picture of the big bang theory, he dives into the quantum world and infuses it with life. Through his talent to explain the unexplainable, he challenges us to imagine one of the most riveting revelations of the New Physics: that numerous realities are possible at any given moment

Single neuron computation by Thomas M McKenna( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and Italian and held by 16 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 n
