Synaesthesia is a condition in which a stimulus elicits an additional subjective experience. The aim of this book on synaesthesia is to provide novel insights into the development of synaesthesia both in its genuine and acquired form.
by Kerstin Preuschoff, Peter NC Mohr, Ming Hsu - Frontiers Media SA , 2013
Little is known about how uncertainty is processed and how they are integrated with expected rewards throughout the decision making process. This book provides a deeper understanding of the processes behind decision making under uncertainty.
by Amitabha Chattopadhyay (ed.) - CRC Press , 2005
A number of developments spanning a multitude of techniques makes this an exciting time for research in serotonin receptors. Serotonin Receptors in Neurobiology is among the first books to include information on serotonin receptor knockout studies.
by Andrey Vyshedskiy - MobileReference , 2014
The origin of the human mind remains one of the greatest mysteries of all times. The author offers an elegant, parsimonious theory of the evolution of the human mind and suggests experiments that could be done to refute or validate the hypothesis.
by Wulfram Gerstner, Werner M. Kistler - Cambridge University Press , 2002
This introduction to spiking neurons can be used in advanced-level courses in computational neuroscience, theoretical biology, neural modeling, biophysics, or neural networks. It focuses on phenomenological approaches rather than detailed models.
by Brian L. Nelms, Patricia A. Labosky - Morgan & Claypool Life Sciences , 2010
The neural crest is an embryonic population of cells found in vertebrates and has the potential to give rise to many different cell types. These derivatives range from the mesenchymal bone, to neuronal derivatives of the peripheral nervous systems.
by Lawrence Kruger, Alan R. Light - CRC Press , 2010
Bringing together recent advances in modern neuroscience regarding genetic studies in mice and humans and the practicality of clinical trials, this volume effectively bridges the gap between basic research and patient care.

Cognitive neuroscience is an exciting area of research into the neural basis of the human mind. This book gives an introduction to research methods of cognitive neuroscience, brain anatomy, neuronal signaling, and the neural basis of perception.
by O'Reilly, Munakata, at al. - University of Colorado Boulder , 2012
Introduction to computer modeling of the brain, to understand how people think. Networks of interacting neurons produce complex emergent behavior including perception, attention, motor control, learning, memory, language, and executive functions.
by Jerry J Buccafusco - CRC Press , 2009
Behavioral techniques used in animals to model human diseases and predict effects of novel drugs are as varied as the numbers of scientists who use them. Consequently, behavioral analysis is becoming an indispensable tool for the neuroscientist.
by Rand S. Swenson - Dartmouth Medical School , 2006
This review will discuss the cellular components of the nervous system first and then will consider the peripheral nervous system before discussing the Central nervous system. In the CNS we will consider the sensory systems and then motor systems.
