Un'amicizia da Nobel

Kahnemann e Tversky, l'incontro che ha cambiato il nostro modo di pensare

Michael Lewis

editore: Cortina Raffaello

pagine: 390

Circa quarant’anni or sono Daniel Kahneman e Amos Tversky hanno dato alle stampe una serie di lavori in cui mostravano come la mente umana tenda a cadere in errore quando si trova costretta a scegliere in situazioni di incertezza. Le loro scoperte hanno posto le basi di una nuova disciplina, l’economia comportamentale, e la loro teoria della mente è stata premiata con il Nobel vinto da Kahneman nel 2002.Un’amicizia da Nobel racconta la storia di una collaborazione avvincente, quella tra due menti d’eccezione che hanno al tempo stesso la statura di grandi figure letterarie. Tversky era un combattente dinamico, un carattere estroverso, sempre al centro dell’attenzione; Kahneman era un introverso dominato dalle proprie insicurezze. La storia delle loro ricerche viene ricostruita a partire dalle personalità di due individui affascinanti, anche se molto diversi: il loro sodalizio ha cambiato per sempre il modo in cui gli uomini percepiscono la propria mente.

Neurobiology of Brain Disorders is the first book directed primarily at basic scientists to offer a comprehensive overview of neurological and neuropsychiatric disease. This book links basic, translational, and clinical research, covering the genetic, developmental, molecular, and cellular mechanisms underlying all major categories of brain disorders. It offers students, postdoctoral fellows, and researchers in the diverse fields of neuroscience, neurobiology, neurology, and psychiatry the tools they need to obtain a basic background in the major neurological and psychiatric diseases, and to discern connections between basic research and these relevant clinical conditions. This book addresses developmental, autoimmune, central, and peripheral neurodegeneration; infectious diseases; and diseases of higher function. The final chapters deal with broader issues, including some of the ethical concerns raised by neuroscience and a discussion of health disparities. Included in each chapter is coverage of the clinical condition, diagnosis, treatment, underlying mechanisms, relevant basic and translational research, and key unanswered questions. Written and edited by a diverse team of international experts, Neurobiology of Brain Disorders is essential reading for anyone wishing to explore the basic science underlying neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases. * Links basic, translational, and clinical research on disorders of the nervous system, creating a format for study that will accelerate disease prevention and treatment* Covers a vast array of neurological disorders, including ADHD, Down syndrome, autism, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, TBI, Parkinson, Huntington, Alzheimer, OCD, PTSD, schizophrenia, depression, and pain* Illustrated in full color* Each chapter provides in-text summary points, special feature boxes, and research questions* Provides an up-to-date synthesis of primary source material

Core Clinical Competencies in Anesthesiology

A Case-Based Approach

Christopher J. Gallagher, Deborah A. Schwengel
e altri

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 486

The core clinical competencies in anesthesiology can be pretty blurry - just how do they apply to real life? This book answers this question, incorporating the core clinical competencies into an engaging format that anesthesiologists like - case studies. So, far from being a 'dry and dusty volume of forgotten lore', this book actually makes learning the competencies fun! Written in the same engaging style as a number of other anesthesia books (specifically, the Board Stiff opus) by leading anesthesiologists from leading medical centers across the United States, this book will bring the core clinical competencies to life for medical students.
