The postmodern brain by Gordon G Globus( )

18 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This interdisciplinary work discloses an unexpected coherence between recent concepts in brain science and postmodern thought. A nonlinear dynamical model of brain states is viewed as an autopoietic, autorhoetic, self-organizing, self-tuning eruption under multiple constraints and guided by an overarching optimization principle which insures conservation of invariances and enhancement of symmetries. The nonlinear dynamical brain as developed shows quantum nonlocality, undergoes chaotic regimes, and does not compute. Heidegger and Derrida are 'appropriated' as dynamical theorists who are concer
Quantum closures and disclosures : thinking-together postphenomenology and quantum brain dynamics by Gordon G Globus( )

17 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This surprising rapprochement between a powerful tradition within continental philosophy and the 20th-century quantum revolution in science is fruitfully applied to crucial issues in philosophy, brain science, mathematics and psychiatry."--Jacket

The transparent becoming of world : a crossing between process philosophy and quantum neurophilosophy by Gordon G Globus( )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Transparent Becoming of World undertakes a penetrating inquiry into the quotidian world we take for granted and the brain that silently hoists our bubbles of world-thrownness. This highly original interdisciplinary book may be of interest to philosophers, psychologists, neuroscientists, consciousness researchers, indeed anyone attracted to the enigma of their own lived existence."--Jacket
Consciousness and the brain : a scientific and philosophical inquiry by Gordon G Globus( Book )

25 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship of consciousness to brain, which Schopenhauer grandly referred to as the "world knot," remains an unsolved problem within both philosophy and science. The central focus in what follows is the relevance of science--from psychoanalysis to neurophysiology and quantum physics-to the mind-brain puzzle. Many would argue that we have advanced little since the age of the Greek philosophers, and that the extraordinary accumulation of neuroscientific knowledge in this century has helped not at all. Increas­ ingly, philosophers and scientists have tended to go their separate ways in considering the issues, since they tend to differ in the questions that they ask, the data and ideas which are provided for consideration, their methods for answering these questions, and criteria for judging the acceptability of an answer. But it is our conviction that philosophers and scientists can usefully interchange, at least to the extent that they provide co~straints upon each other's preferred strategies, and it may prove possible for more substantive progress to be made. Philosophers have said some rather naive things by ignoring the extraordinary advances in the neurosciences in the twentieth century. The skull is not filled with green cheese! On the other hand, the arrogance of many scientists toward philosophy and their faith in the scientific method is equally naive. Scientists clearly have much to learn from philosophy as an intellectual discipline

Human Performance and Ultradian Biorhythms( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of the study was to determine if there was an ultradian (circa 100 minute) temporal organization to behavior, and assess the extent to which variations in behavior could be accounted for by this hypothesized systematic rhythmic variation. Methods included analysis of sleep stages in order to determine the intra-sleep ultradian organization, study of continuous human performance over extended time periods in order to detect ultradian rhythms in performance and activity, and studies of sleep electrophysiology and waking performance in which a hypothesized continuity between ultradian rhythms during sleep and waking was investigated. Results were that the intra-sleep ultradian rhythm was demonstrated to be on the order of 100 minutes. Comparable ultradian rhythms in waking performance on signal detection tasks and in gross motor activity were demonstrated. It was not possible to demonstrate any continuity between intra-sleep and extra-sleep ultradian rhythms. It is concluded on the basis of these studies, as well as other available data, that ultradian rhythms, as reflected in gross motor activity and signal detection tasks, do occur in young adults under specified laboratory conditions, but these rhythms account for little of the variance in these measures. Several reprints are included
