Neurobiologia

Una nuova geografia del cervello. Funzioni e risorse di un organo sorprendente

Bernard Sablonnière

editore: Dedalo

pagine: 192

I misteri del cervello non finiscono mai. Bernard Sablonnière ci guida nell'esplorazione di questi territori ancora in gran parte sconosciuti, ne traccia la mappa ed elenca funzioni e capacità sorprendenti dell'organo che ci rende umani: percezione, memoria, emozioni, passioni, creatività. Il cervello è la chiave dei nostri talenti e la fonte del nostro straordinario potenziale di adattamento e apprendimento. Nulla è determinato una volta per tutte: il cervello si rigenera, si modifica, rimedia alle proprie mancanze, ci permette di imparare e di inventare. L'autore traccia una vera e propria cartografia dei nostri paesaggi cerebrali e mostra come preservare e rafforzare le risorse del cervello per vivere meglio, più a lungo e più felici.

Principles of Frontal Lobe Function

Donald T. Stuss, Robert T. Knight

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 800

The second edition of Principles of Frontal Lobe Function is a newly organized, and thoroughly updated, volume divided into 9 different sections, each co-edited by leaders in the specific domain of frontal lobe research. The topic areas include anatomy and neuropharmacology, development, systems and models, fundamental cognitive mechanisms, social behavior, clinical neuropsychology, aging, psychiatric disorders, and rehabilitation. This organization reflects both an increase in our combined knowledge about frontal lobe functioning through new imaging technologies, as well as the expansion of the field as a whole to include new topics such as social neuroscience that were not discussed in the first edition. Principles of Frontal Lobe Function will naturally be of particular interest to researchers and clinicians actively investigating how the frontal lobes operate and to understand dysfunction as a means to design treatment. This new edition will also be a useful resource for anyone involved in a discipline related to brain function, whether it be cognitive neuroscience, behavioral neurology, neuropsychiatry, neuropsychology, or neurorehabilitation. Our knowledge of how the frontal lobes are integrated with functioning in every other region of the brain is also integrating our approach to solving brain-based problems. Authors in this volume represent investigators who are deep-rooted in frontal lobe research. As such, students will be exposed to both the classical and frontier perspectives and will gain significant insight into future research directions of what we believe to be the most fascinating area of the brain.

Neuroglia

Bruce R. Ransom, Helmut Kettenmann

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 864

Neuroglia, the third edition, is the long-awaited revision of the most highly regarded reference volume on glial cells. This indispensable edition has been completely revised, greatly enlarged, and enhanced with four-color figures throughout, all in response to the tremendous amount of new information that has accumulated since the previous edition seven years ago. Glial cells are, without doubt, the new stars in the neuroscience and neurology communities. Neglected in research for years, it is now evident that the brain only functions in a concerted action of all the cells, namely glia and neurons. Seventy one chapters comprehensively discuss virtually every aspect of normal glial cell anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and function, and consider the central roles of these cells in neurological diseases including stroke, Alzheimer disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, neuropathy, and psychiatric conditions. More than 20 new chapters have been added to accommodate the unprecedented growth of knowledge about the basic biology of glia and the sophisticated manner in which they partner with neurons in the course of normal brain function. Lavishly illustrated and meticulously edited, the third edition remains the most convenient and maximally useful reference available. This new edition is an essential reference for both newcomers to the field as well as established investigators. Neuroglia belongs on every neuroscientist's bookshelf and will be a great asset for educators and neurological clinicians as well.

Integrative Action of the Autonomic Nervous System

Neurobiology of Homeostasis

Wilfrid Jänig

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 636

Almost all bodily functions are dependent on the functioning of the autonomic nervous system - from the cardiovascular system, the gastrointestinal tract, the evacuative and sexual organs, to the regulation of temperature, metabolism and tissue defence. Balanced functioning of this system is an important basis of our life and well-being. This book gives a detailed description of the cellular and integrative organization of the autonomic nervous system, covering both peripheral and central aspects. It brings to light modern neurobiological concepts that allow understanding of why the healthy system runs so smoothly and why its deterioration has such disastrous consequences. This academic reference volume will appeal to advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying the neurobiology of the autonomic nervous system within the various biological and medical sciences and will give access to ideas propagated in psychosomatic and alternative medicines.

The Human Central Nervous System

A Synopsis and Atlas

C. Van Huijzen, Jan Voogd
e altri

editore: Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. K

pagine: 981

The present edition of The Human Central Nervous System differs considerably from its predecessors. In previous editions, the text was essentially confined to a section dealing with the various functional systems of the brain. This section, which has been rewritten and updated, is now preceded by 15 newly written chapters, which introduce the pictorial material of the gross anatomy, the blood vessels and meninges and the microstructure of its various parts and deal with the development, topography and functional anatomy of the spinal cord, the brain stem and the cerebellum, the diencephalon and the telencephalon. Great pains have been taken to cover the most recent concepts and data. As suggested by the front cover, there is a focus on the evolutionary development of the human brain. Throughout the text numerous correlations with neuropathology and clinical n- rology have been made. After much thought, we decided to replace the full Latin terminology, cherished in all previous editions, with English and Anglicized Latin terms. It has been an emotional farewell from beautiful terms such as decussatio hipposideriformis W- nekinkii and pontes grisei caudatolenticulares. Not only the text, but also the p- torial material has been extended and brought into harmony with the present state of knowledge. More than 230 new illustrations have been added and many others have been revised. The number of macroscopical sections through the brain has been extended considerably. Together, these illustrations now comprise a complete and convenient atlas for interpreting neuroimaging studies.
