What You Think ADD/ADHD Is, It Isn't: Symptoms and Neuropsychological Testing Through Time

Barbara C. Fisher
May 20, 2013

ADD/ADHD is not as easily diagnosed or clear-cut as many believe; in fact it very often acts as a masking agent for other underlying, contributing disorders. It’s important that we understand ADD/ADHD better. What You Think ADD/ADHD Is, It Isn’t: Symptoms and Neuropsychological Testing Through Time...

Nutrition and Mental Health

Ruth Leyse-Wallace
January 29, 2013

Although primary advanced vitamin and mineral deficiencies are rare in the developed world, many common health conditions deplete nutritional status, including sub-optimal dietary intake, frequent alcohol consumption, changes in appetite due to aging, food allergies or sensitivities, special diets,...

Transcranial Brain Stimulation

Carlo Miniussi, Walter Paulus, Paolo M. Rossini
December 03, 2012

Since the discovery of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial electrical stimulation (tES), these non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) techniques have been used to investigate the state of cortical excitability, and the excitability of the cortico-cortical and corticospinal...

The Neurobiological Basis of Suicide

Yogesh Dwivedi
June 25, 2012

With recent studies using genetic, epigenetic, and other molecular and neurochemical approaches, a new era has begun in understanding pathophysiology of suicide. Emerging evidence suggests that neurobiological factors are not only critical in providing potential risk factors but also provide a...

Augmenting Cognition

Idan Segev, Henry Markram
November 21, 2011

The Human brain is only 100,000 years old. Yet, this newly evolved organ endows us with unique creative capabilities beyond all other living creatures, including the gift to understand itself. As our very survival and success in life depends on utilizing our brain’s power, intense efforts have...

Robin B. Kanarek, Harris R. Lieberman
October 06, 2011

As the field of nutritional neuroscience has grown, both the scientific community and the general population have expressed a heightened interest in the effect of nutrients on behavior. Diet, Brain, Behavior: Practical Implications presents the work of a diverse group of scientists who collectively...

Concussive Brain Trauma: Neurobehavioral Impairment & Maladaptation, Second Edition

Rolland S. Parker
September 20, 2011

Focusing on a public health problem affecting millions of people of all ages, the second edition of Concussive Brain Trauma: Neurobehavioral Impairment and Maladaptation reflects Dr. Rolland S. Parker's more than 25 years of neuropsychological practice and research in traumatic brain injury and...

Neurobiology of Depression

Francisco Lopez-Munoz, Cecilio Alamo
September 09, 2011

Major depressive disorders have recently been associated with impairments in signaling pathways that regulate neuroplasticity and cell survival. Agents designed to directly target molecules in these pathways hold promise as new therapeutics for depression. With the collaboration of the most...

The Neural Bases of Multisensory Processes

Micah M. Murray, Mark T. Wallace
August 25, 2011

It has become accepted in the neuroscience community that perception and performance are quintessentially multisensory by nature. Using the full palette of modern brain imaging and neuroscience methods, The Neural Bases of Multisensory Processes details current understanding in the neural bases for...

Essentials of Functional MRI

Patrick W. Stroman
June 07, 2011

During the last two decades, new developments in functional MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) have made it possible to detect changes in the brain over time, as opposed to the "snapshot" produced by conventional MRI. Essentials of Functional MRI breaks down the technical challenges for physicians,...

Neurobiology of Sensation and Reward

Jay A. Gottfried
March 28, 2011

Synthesizing coverage of sensation and reward into a comprehensive systems overview, Neurobiology of Sensation and Reward presents a cutting-edge and multidisciplinary approach to the interplay of sensory and reward processing in the brain. While over the past 70 years these areas have drifted...

Methods of Behavior Analysis in Neuroscience, Second Edition

Jerry J. Buccafusco
October 29, 2008

Behavioral techniques used in animals to model human diseases and predict effects of novel drugs are as varied as the numbers of scientists who use them. Consequently, behavioral analysis is becoming an increasingly indispensable tool for the neuroscientist as information gained at the molecular...
