The complexity of the brain, the house of human consciousness, is so great that scientists are still mystified as to how it works. For a student, learning the various cellular organizations, cranial nerves, and neural connections can be an intimidating challenge. The Human Brain Coloring Workbook is a break-through approach to understanding the brain's organization and functions. It features 125 striking, computer-generated illustrations that will help students gain a clear and enduring comprehension of this highly intricate structure. Learning interactively through coloring thoroughly fixes concepts in the mind and takes less time than memorizing from textbooks. The ideas behind each lesson are amply explained, and more complex subjects are approached through the gradual introduction of simple drawings. After completing the lessons in this book, not only will you understand the brain's basic configurations and functions, you will also have a fully colored and labeled resource ready for review whenever you need to brush up. This book is an invaluable and lasting resource for students in a number of disciplines, including medicine, anatomy and physiology, biology, psychology, nursing, rehabilitation, health administration, medical technology, and nutrition. The 125 plates in the book are organized in the following sections: *Central Nervous System Development *The Meninges *The Cerebral Hemispheres *The Cranial Nerves *The Ventricular System and Cerebrospinal Fluid *The Limbic System *The Thalamic Complex *The Basal Ganglia *The Brainstream *The Cerebellum *The Cerebrovascular System *Neuronal Conduction *The Autonomic Nervous System *The Ascending and Descending Neuronal Tracts *Atlas of Human Brain Sections

Fractured Minds introduces the reader to clinical neuropsychology through vivid case descriptions of adults who have suffered brain damage. At one level, this is a book about the courage, humor, and determination to triumph over illness and disability that many "ordinary people" demonstrate when coping with the extraordinary stress of a brain disorder. On another level, it is a well-referenced and up-to-date textbook that provides a holistic view of the practice of clinical neuropsychology. Included are reader-friendly descriptions and explanations of a wide range of neurological disorders and neuroscientific concepts. Two introductory chapters are followed by 17 chapters that each focus on a specific disorder and include research, clinical assessment, rehabilitation, and a detailed case study. Disorders range across the full spectrum from common ones such as traumatic brain injury and dementia, to rare disorders such as autotopagnosia. Each of the 16 chapters retained from the first edition has been revised to reflect current research and clinical advances. Three new chapters on multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and Huntington's disease incorporate discussion of important current topics such as genetically-transmitted diseases, genetic counseling, gene transplantation, functional neurosurgery, and the complex ethical issues that go hand-in-hand with these new techniques. This informative and engaging book will be of interest to students of clinical psychology, neuropsychology, and neurology, health professionals who work with neurological patients, neurological patients and their families, and lay readers who are simply fascinated by the mind and brain.

An Introduction to the Science of the Mind

Cognitive Science combines the interdisciplinary streams of cognitive science into a unified narrative in an all-encompassing introduction to the field. This text presents cognitive science as a discipline in its own right, and teaches students to apply the techniques and theories of the cognitive scientist's 'toolkit' - the vast range of methods and tools that cognitive scientists use to study the mind. Thematically organized, rather than by separate disciplines, Cognitive Science underscores the problems and solutions of cognitive science, rather than those of the subjects that contribute to it - psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, etc. The generous use of examples, illustrations, and applications demonstrates how theory is applied to unlock the mysteries of the human mind. Drawing upon cutting-edge research, the text has been updated and enhanced to incorporate new studies and key experiments since the first edition. A new chapter on consciousness has also been added.

Clinical Neuroscience: Psychopathology and the Brain, Second Edition, uses a student-friendly, integrative, and empirically based approach to present the neuroscience underlying various psychological disorders. The text begins with a tour of the brain's fundamental building blocks (neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, neurophysiology, and neurodevelopment) before moving on to such mental health challenges and illnesses as traumatic brain injury, Parkinson's disease, addiction, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and depression. The final section of the book includes chapters devoted to the maintenance of mental health, including stress and coping, psychoneuroimmunology, and hunger regulation. Pedagogical features including chapter-opening vignettes (Connections), case studies (A Case in Point), running marginal glossaries, and feature boxes (Brain Matters) illuminate the course content for students as they learn about the value of translational research (i.e., transformingbasic research into applied therapies). Clinical Neuroscience: Psychopathology and the Brain, Second Edition, emphasizes the value of the scientific method, relevant empirical information, and the practice of utilizing multiple perspectives so that meaningful progress can be made toward the identification of the most effective treatment strategies. Ultimately, all students will have a sound scientific foundation on which to build a greater understanding of the neurobiology inherent in psychological properties and mental health.
