Functional Neuroanatomy of the Brain: Third Part

Descriere: "Functional neuroanatomy of the brain" gathers an immense material from different sources (books, papers, works of great neuroanatomists mentioned in the references etc.) and makes a precise and complete synthesis of the structure and functions of the brain, the most complex system in the universe. The book starts with the history of neuroscience, data and ideas referring to soul, mind and brain, the way they have been imagined and conceived by healers, witches and philosophers since old times. On the other hand the book aims at revealing some basic and recent data about mind and brain, making them accessible to students, doctors, psychologists, biologists and all those interested in this vast topic and research field - the brain - who are studying by themselves. The first volume of "Functional neuroanatomy of the brain" has eight chapters, as it follows: HISTORY OF THE BRAIN AND MIND, INTRODUCTION IN THE NERVOUS SYSTEM, MEDULLA OBLONGATA (OR BULB), PONS, MIDBRAIN, RETICULAR FORMATION, CEREBELLUM and DIENCEPHALON. The second part presents in nine chapters of detailed information: THE BASAL GANGLIA, LIMBIC LOBE AND LIMBIC SYSTEM, HIPPOCAMPAL FORMATION, AMYGDALA, OLFACTORY SYSTEM, GUSTATORY SYSTEM, FRONTAL LOBES, PARIETAL LOBE and TEMPORAL LOBES. At least the third part gathers essential information split in seven chapters: OCCIPITAL LOBE, WHITE MATTER OF CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE, CORPUS CALLOSUM, CEREBRAL CORTEX, VENTRICULAR SYSTEM AND MENINGES, CEREBRAL ASYMMETRY in nonhumans, THE NEURAL BASIS OF CONSCIOUSNESS. Even if this book is not written by a neuroanatomist, but it represents a textbook assembled by a genius of neurosurgery, with a huge professional experiences, Academician Professor Doctor Leon Danaila, who describes himself some reasons of this special work: "As a neurosurgeon who has performed over 40 000 surgeries on the central and peripheral nervous system during my 50 years of continuous neurosurgical activity, I can comprehend the structural and functional complexity of the brain. In order not to disturb the highly functional areas of the central nervous system, I was forced to get familiar with the details of the brain map, which, taking into consideration my experience, varies from individual to individual, and I can say that each person, healthy or sick, is unique. I have been an assiduous reader of many books and papers in order to have a better documentation in this area, but I could not find any manual or book to contain relatively complete and up-to-date information on the anatomy and physiology of the brain. The existing neuroanatomy textbooks are not thorough enough, in my opinion, as they do not explain the morphological and neurophysiological complexity of white and grey matter. To keep up with the vast literature in this research field, and with the investigations of the brain as a whole has been for me a real challenge or better said an impossible task, an unreachable goal. The clinical information has been of great help in understanding the basic scientific concepts and the way in which the central nervous system, especially the brain, operates and interacts in the presence of various internal and external harmful factors, or in abnormal, pathological situations. Publishing this book concurs with an enormous explosion of knowledge about the morphology and physiology of the central nervous system and its vast reciprocal connections and plasticity. Consequently, I found it hard to keep up with the multitude of works published during the past ten years about functional neuroimaging, neuropharmacology, computational modulation, rehabilitation methods, theories of thinking, of memory, attention, frontal functions, language etc., as well as the structures and the immense number of neural connections and columns that build them. I keep the doors open to corrections, additions and novelty and, why not, to reinterpretation. It's me who will do it or maybe others will do it better than I did."

The Making of Modern Medicine: Turning Points in the Treatment of Disease

At the dawn of the twenty-first century, we have become accustomed to medical breakthroughs and conditioned to assume that, regardless of illnesses, doctors almost certainly will be able to help--not just by diagnosing us and alleviating our pain, but by actually treating or even curing diseases, and significantly improving our lives. For most of human history, however, that was far from the case, as veteran medical historian Michael Bliss explains in The Making of Modern Medicine. Focusing on a few key moments in the transformation of medical care, Bliss reveals the way that new discoveries and new approaches led doctors and patients alike to discard fatalism and their traditional religious acceptance of suffering in favor of a new faith in health care and in the capacity of doctors to treat disease. He takes readers in his account to three turning points--a devastating smallpox outbreak in Montreal in 1885, the founding of the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Medical School, and the discovery of insulin--and recounts the lives of three crucial figures--researcher Frederick Banting, surgeon Harvey Cushing, and physician William Osler--turning medical history into a fascinating story of ...

The Working Brain: An Introduction to Neuropsychology

This important book, by the most distinguished Soviet psychologist of our time, is the product of almost forty years of extensive research aimed at understanding the cerebral basis of human psychological activity. The main part of the book describes what we know today about the individual systems that make up the human brain and about the role of the individual zones of the cerebral hemispheres in the task of providing the necessary conditions for higher forms of mental activity to take place. Finally, Luria analyzes the cerebral organization of perception and action, of attention and memory, or speech and intellectual processes, and attempts to fit the facts obtained by neuropsychological studies of individual brain systems into their appropriate place in the grand design of psychological science.
