*Tóm tắt : In The Changing Brain, Ira Black tells the fascinating story of modern neuroscience. A rich, multifaceted tale spanning a century and taking place on multiple continents, it moves from Fascist Italy, with the discovery of nerve growth factor (NGF) by a young scientist working secretly in a makeshift laboratory in her bedroom, to current experiments in which transplanted, laboratory-grown cells lead to recovery and function in damaged brain regions. In the mid 1990s, a revolutionary new conception of the brain emerged--instead of the traditional view that the brain's role in perception, memory, learning, and emotions was based on a static, non-renewable network of brain cells and connections, research revealed that the human brain is an ever-changing, fantastically complex system that is continually being shaped and reshaped by a subtle interplay of genetic clues and life experiences .

*Tóm tắt : Sleep has long been a topic of fascination for artists and scientists. Why do we sleep? What function does sleep serve? Why do we dream? What significance can we attach to our dreams? We spend so much of our lives sleeping, yet its precise function is unclear, in spite of our increasing understanding of the processes generating and maintaining sleep. We now know that sleep can be accompanied by periods of intense cerebral activity, yet only recently has experimental data started to provide us with soem insights into the type of processing taking place in the brain as we sleep. There is now strong evidence that sleep plays a crucial role in learning and in the consolidation of memories. Once the preserve of psychoanalysts, 'dreaming' is now a topic of increasing interest amongst scientists .

*Tóm tắt : The Neuropsychology of Vision describes a range of new approaches to neuropsychological investigation and provides a broad overview of visual neuropsychology. The book starts by presenting the results from new research employing single-unit recordings, on the neuronal basis of perception demonstrating that the visual system relies strongly on feedback from higher to lower levels of information processing, and that neuronal plasticity exists in the primary sensory cortices of adults, areas previously considered to be hard-wired. The book also describes other new and adapted techniques to measure brain activity, including multi-unit sum potential recording, functional magnetic resonance imaging and employing transcranial stimulation to induce temporary, circumscribed lesions in the cortices of normal subjects to mimic disorders .

*Tóm tắt : different levels. Neurophysiological studies, at the single neuron level are required. We need to bring in neuropsychological studies of brain damaged patients in order to understand what different parts of the visual system do, and what each part is needed for. Neuroimaging work can provide valuable information on the locations in the brain where these processes are taking place. Additionally required is an understanding of the biophysical and synaptic properties of neurons to see how the computing elements of the brain work. A knowledge of the anatomical and functional architecture of the cortex further enhances our understanding. Finally, neural computation methods can bring together the evidence to understand how the visual system actually works. Most of the books looking at the topic of vision tend to take a particular approach and exclude the work and data being obtained from studies adopting other approaches .

*Tóm tắt : The topic of "colour vision" is one that integrates research from psychology, neuroscience, biology, opthalmology, physics, and genetics. How do we make sense of colour in the world, and how has such an ability evolved in humans? How does the brain interpret colour images? How can our genes influence the way in which we perceive colours? Do men discriminate colours differently to women? Why do some people have problems perceiving colours? John Mollon, Joel Porkorny, and Ken Knoblauch are leading authorities on this topic. Together they have brought together a stellar list of contributors, encompassing all these fields. Superbly edited and presented, this book is unique in drawing together contributors from these several fields to provide a truly interdisciplinary review of the field. Aimed at researchers in the vision sciences (including psychology and neuroscience), this will be the definitive text on this topic for many years to come .
