Casebook of Clinical Neuropsychology

Casebook of scientific Neuropsychology positive factors real scientific neuropsychological situations drawn from major experts' records. each one bankruptcy represents a special case accomplished through a distinct professional. situations disguise the lifespan from baby, to grownup, to geriatric, and the kinds of situations will symbolize a large spectrum of prototypical instances of recognized and well-documented problems in addition to a few rarer problems.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): Basic Principles, Protocols, and Procedures, 2nd Edition

This quantity presents the definitive advisor to Eye move Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), the psychotherapeutic procedure built by means of Francine Shapiro. EMDR is likely one of the most generally investigated remedies for posttraumatic rigidity illness, and plenty of different purposes also are being explored.

Descartes’s Mathematical Thought

Masking either the background of arithmetic and of philosophy, Descartes's Mathematical notion reconstructs the highbrow profession of Descartes such a lot comprehensively and initially in a world viewpoint together with the historical past of early sleek China and Japan. in particular, it exhibits what the concept that of "mathesis universalis" intended sooner than and through the interval of Descartes and the way it inspired the younger Descartes.

The Neuropathology of Huntington’s Disease: Classical Findings, Recent Developments and Correlation to Functional Neuroanatomy

This monograph describes the development in neuropathological HD study made over the last century, the neuropathological hallmarks of HD and their pathogenic relevance. beginning with the preliminary descriptions of the revolutionary degeneration of the striatum as one of many key occasions in HD, the global practiced Vonsattel HD grading procedure of striatal neurodegeneration might be defined.

Sample text

The scientific offsprings of Hubel and Wiesel have lived and probably still live with the belief that once orientation selectivity, ocular dominance, wavelength selectivity and possibly 2 VISUAL NEUROSCIENCE 21 direction selectivity are described, all the properties of visual cortical cells are described and that the only task left is to find out how these properties are grouped in the cortex and how these properties come about developmentally. The Cambridge group and its many followers have introduced gratings and the Fourier analysis idea into visual neuroscience.

Functions such as language and reasoning seem to be typically human. The techniques available for investigation of these cognitive functions are mainly indirect although recordings from human brains have been obtained during surgery. Because of the importance of language and reasoning, neurophysiology has a special status in cognitive neuroscience (see chapter by Vallar). One should however face the difficulty of indirect methods. The best one can do is to answer partially the first question, that of localisation.

This makes the recovery of the full velocity vector a "problem" which can be solved by combining outputs from elongated mechanisms with different orientations. The matching or correspondence problem arises when the images of an object in two distinct frames, provided by two input devices (such as the two eyes) or by one input device at different instances, have to be matched to compute the disparity (difference in position in the two input devices) or the motion of the object. This entails á strategy to determine which pixel, line fragment or object in one frame corresponds to a pixel, line fragment or object in the other.
