The Female Brain

The Female Brain

2nd Edition

Cynthia L. Darlington
June 14, 2017

The first edition of The Female Brain laid the groundwork for gaining a better understanding of the female brain, examining the evidence for structural and functional differences between the brains of males and females. Addressing a wealth of new research, the second edition continues in this vein,...

A Theory of the Basal Ganglia and Their Disorders

A Theory of the Basal Ganglia and Their Disorders

1st Edition

Robert Miller
August 08, 2007

The Basal ganglia, to adopt a phrase of Churchill's, are "a riddle wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma." And although there is a wealth of information available on them, this research field remains controversial due in part to the diverse number of disciplines involved. A Theory of the Basal...

Memory and Brain Dynamics: Oscillations Integrating Attention, Perception, Learning, and Memory

Memory and Brain Dynamics: Oscillations Integrating Attention, Perception, Learning, and Memory

1st Edition

Erol Basar
June 23, 2004

Memory itself is inseparable from all other brain functions and involves distributed dynamic neural processes. A wealth of publications in neuroscience literature report that the concerted action of distributed multiple oscillatory processes (EEG oscillations) play a major role in brain functioning...

Cortical Areas: Unity and Diversity

Cortical Areas: Unity and Diversity

1st Edition

Almut Schuez, Robert Miller
May 30, 2002

The study of areas in the cerebral cortex has a long history, bringing empirical data into close relation with fundamental conceptual issues about the cortex. The subject is currently being revitalized with the advent of new experimental methods and this book brings a modern perspective to the...

Sex Differences in Lateralization in the Animal Brain

Sex Differences in Lateralization in the Animal Brain

1st Edition

V L Bianki, E. B. Filippova
January 16, 2001

Until recently, little account has been taken of sex differences in many research studies in psychiatry, medicine and physiology. Subjects of these research studies were mainly men, with most researchers using twice as many males as females in their studies. The need to take a sexually...

Time and the Brain

Time and the Brain

1st Edition

Robert Miller
September 11, 2000

Since the days of Galileo, time has been a fundamental variable in scientific attempts to understand the natural world. Once the first recordings of electrical activity in the brain had been made, it became clear that electrical signals from the brain consist of very complex temporal patterns. This...

Complex Brain Functions: Conceptual Advances in Russian Neuroscience

Complex Brain Functions: Conceptual Advances in Russian Neuroscience

1st Edition

Robert Miller, Alexey M Ivanitsky
May 30, 2000

There are many difficulties hindering western scientists from becoming acquainted with Russian scientific literature, including both political and language barriers. Russian science has a long and proud tradition going back as far as Peter the Great and the founding of the Russian Academy of...

Brain Dynamics and the Striatal Complex

Brain Dynamics and the Striatal Complex

1st Edition

Robert Miller, Jeffrey Wickens
January 18, 2000

Brain Dynamics and the Striatal Complex, the first volume in the Conceptual Advances in Brain Research book series, relates dynamic function to cellular structure and synaptic organization in the basal ganglia. The striatum is the largest nucleus within the basal ganglia and therefore plays an...
