Stress : portrait of a killer( Visual )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stanford University neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky has been advancing our understanding of stress - how it impacts our bodies and how our social standing can make us more or less susceptible. Research reveals that the impact of stress can be found deep within us, shrinking our brains, adding fat to our bellies, even unraveling our chromosomes. Yet understanding how stress works can help us figure out a ways to combat it and how to live a life free of the tyranny of this contemporary plague
The trouble with testosterone : and other essays on the biology of the human predicament by Robert M Sapolsky( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and Polish and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Trouble with Testosterone, Robert M. Sapolsky draws from his career as a behavioral biologist to interpret the peculiar drives and intrinsic needs of that most exotic species - Homo sapiens. With candor, humor, and lush observations, these essays marry cutting-edge science with a rich and compassionate humanity. Sapolsky's book ranges broadly over the web of life, studying its details and plotting its themes. "Curious George's Pharmacy" examines recent exciting claims that wild primates know how to medicate themselves with forest plants. "Junk Food Monkeys" relates the adventures of a troop of baboons who stumble onto a tourist garbage dump. "Poverty's Remains" claims that science is as riddled with metaphors as a Shakespearean sonnet. "Measures of Life" begins as a witty analysis of firing squads and concludes as a dazzling meditation on the roles and responsibilities of scientists. And in the final essay, the brilliant and penetrating "Circling the Blanket for God," Sapolsky shows that science and religion emanate from the same place: the human brain. These pieces, then, reveal the contradictions that confront those who describe the world objectively, those who try to reconcile the truths of the mind with the burdens of the heart

Biology and human behavior : the neurological origins of individuality( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biology and Human Behavior: The Neurological Origins of Individuality, is an interdisciplinary approach to the fascinating subject of behavioral biology, a field that explores interactions among the brain, mind, body, and environment that have a surprising influence on how we behave. In 24 lectures, you will investigate how the human brain is sculpted by evolution, constrained or freed by genes, shaped by early experience, modulated by hormones, and otherwise influenced to produce a wide range of behaviors, some of them abnormal. You will see that little can be explained by thinking about any one of these factors alone because some combination of influences is almost always at work
Why zebras don't get ulcers by Robert M Sapolsky( Visual )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tackling the serious topic of stress in his famously entertaining manner, Professor Sapolsky sets the stage on a Kenyan savannah, with a hungry lion in hot pursuit of a terrified zebra. As he explains, the zebra's fight-or-flight response channels essential energy to its survival effort by shutting down and even damaging nonessential biological functions- in a temporary, short-term response. Unfortunately, humans can generate the same response simply by anticipating stress- whether or not it occurs, and whether or not it's merited. And when we subject ourselves to prolonged psychological stress (as Type A personalities in particular do) we contract ulcers, diabetes, heart disease, brain damage, and other dysfunctions. So why do some people cope with stress better than others? Drawing on Hans Selye's research with rats in a stress-induced environment, Robert Sapolsky gives us hope. We can reduce the risk of stress-related disease when we have an outlet for stress and frustration, some control over what's causing us stress, the ability to predict stressors, and, perhaps most importantly, social connectedness for emotional support
