    Mirror neurons make it possible for us to empathize with other people -- and life forms. We see an emotion, and we fire off the same emotion in our brain. That's how we get other people's pain, joy, and so on. And why it's a really bad idea to watch slasher movies. This book explains the science behind our growing understanding of human connection/5(68). brings to digital life the historic Brain Facts book, and augments it with hundreds has as many as billion nerve cells called neurons, and the communication between these cells forms the basis of all brain function.

About this book This is a collection of investigative laboratory experiments designed for the advanced undergraduate and the first- or second-year graduate student. In the first of its three major sections, neurons are studied as individual cells, including topics such as intracellular recording, immunocytochemistry, and HPLC.

Help with your journey is now available, however, in the form of a primer in neuroscience terms and language. Discovering Neurons: The Experimental Basis of Neuroscience describes a series of laboratory classes in molecular biology, neuroanatomy, electrophysiology, psychology (behavioural neuroscience), and much more in : David K Bilkey.

CSHL Press publishes monographs, technical manuals, handbooks, review volumes, conference proceedings, scholarly journals and videotapes. These examine important topics in molecular biology, genetics, development, virology, neurobiology, immunology and cancer biology.

Manuscripts for books and for journal publication are invited from scientists world wide. Emily particularly enjoyed discovering new ideas and theories Discovering neurons book the human body and decomposition.

In her spare time, Emily enjoys watching crime documentaries and reading books. She also loves the outdoors, enjoying long walks and discovering new places.

The first part of the book is on the discovery of mirror neurons. These chapters are used to explain the significance of mirror neurons by using them to answer questions such as "why is it hard to be on a diet when we see others eating things we should not?"Reviews: The Discovering Psychology telecourse and educational video series first premiered in as a visual resource for teaching introductory psychology.

The 26 video programs review the history of the field, including the work of early and contemporary theorists, practitioners, and researchers, illustrating their work with footage of classic experiments and modern studies.

With its comprehensive, authoritative coverage and student-centered pedagogy, DISCOVERING BEHAVIORAL NEUROSCIENCE: AN INTRODUCTION TO BIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY, 3rd Edition is ideal for a broad range of students taking a beginning undergraduate course in biological or physiological psychology.

Crucial to understanding how the brain works is connectivity, and the centerpiece of brain connectivity is the connectome, a comprehensive description of how neurons and brain regions are connected. In this book, Olaf Sporns surveys current efforts to chart these connections—to map the human connectome.

Neurons are cells within the nervous system that transmit information to other nerve cells, muscle, or gland cells.

Most neurons have a cell body, an axon, and dendrites. The cell body contains the nucleus and cytoplasm. The axon extends from the cell body and often gives rise to many smaller branches before ending at nerve terminals. In this book, Olaf Sporns surveys current Crucial to understanding how the brain works is connectivity, and the centerpiece of brain connectivity is the connectome, a comprehensive description of how neurons and brain regions are connected/5(20).

The “war” of neurotransmission that Valenstein examines in his book encompasses one of the key periods in the history of neuroscience. By the middle of the 20th century, it was well accepted that neurons are physically separated from one another by a narrow space.

The demands of everyday life leave little time or reason to think about how we do what we do. Yet at any given moment innumerable and imperceptible transactions are occurring within the central nervous system—when we wake in the morning and shake off the impressions of a dream; when we go out for a walk, recognize a friend, and cross the street to say hello.

The workings of the nervous. Summary: Researchers discover what they are calling social and asocial neurons in the prefrontal cortex. Source: CNRS. The existence of new “social” neurons has just been demonstrated by scientists from the Institut de neurosciences des systèmes (Aix-Marseille University / INSERM), the Laboratoire de psychologie sociale et cognitive (Université Clermont Auvergne / CNRS), and the.
