A user's guide to the brain : perception, attention, and the four theaters of the brain by John J Ratey( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 1,448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the first time ever, discoveries in our understanding of the brain are changing anthropology, linguistics, philosophy, and psychology - indeed, the brain itself may become a catalyst for transforming the very nature of these inquiries, In A User's Guide to the Brain, Dr. John Ratey, explains in lucid detail and with perfect clarity the basic structure and chemistry of the brain: how its systems shape our perceptions, emotions, actions, and reactions; how possession of this knowledge can enable us to more fully understand and improve our lives; and how the brain responds to the guidance of its user. He draws on examples from his own practice, from research, and from everyday life to illuminate aspects of the brain's functioning, among them prenatal and early childhood development; the perceptual systems; the processes of consciousness, memory, emotion, and language; and the social brain." "As the best means for explaining the dynamic interactions of the brain, Ratey offers as a metaphor the four "theaters" of exploration; 1) the act of perception; 2) the filters of attention, consciousness, and cognition; 3) the array of options employed by the brain - memory, emotion, language, movement - to transform information into function; and 4) behavior and identity. Ratey succeeds not only in giving us a compelling portrait of the brain's infinite flexibility and unpredictability but also in demonstrating how our very understanding of the brain affects who we are."--Jacket
Shadow syndromes by John J Ratey( Book )

23 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume chronicles often-undiagnosed "shadow" psychological disorders. The authors illuminate many aspects of our personalities, helping readers understand why many mental disorders are just one extreme in a continuous range of types, and provides some hints as to why many of those types have advantages and disadvantages that would explain why such a range of personalities ought to exist. They maintain that while more than 50 million Americans suffer from full-fledged mental illnesses such as depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder, millions more suffer from milder forms -- yet they likely don't realize it. They use real-life case studies to illustrate how shadow syndromes affect everyday lives and how they can be treated -- often dramatically -- with diet, exercise, psychotherapy, and medication
