This volume of Progress in Brain Research provides a synthetic source of information about state-of-the-art research that has important implications for the evolution of the brain and cognition in primates, including humans. This topic requires input from a variety of fields that are developing at an unprecedented pace: genetics, developmental neurobiology, comparative and functional neuroanatomy (at gross and microanatomical levels), quantitative neurobiology related to scaling factors that constrain brain organization and evolution, primate palaeontology (including paleoneurology), paleo-anthropology, comparative psychology, and behavioural evolutionary biology.

Written by internationally-renowned scientists, this timely volume will be of wide interest to students, scholars, science journalists, and a variety of experts who are interested in keeping track of the discoveries that are rapidly emerging about the evolution of the brain and cognition.

The Neuroscience of Autism Spectrum Disorders (Hardcover): Joseph D. Buxbaum, Patrick R. Hof The Neuroscience of Autism Spectrum Disorders (Hardcover)
Joseph D. Buxbaum, Patrick R. Hof
R2,251 Discovery Miles 22 510 Special order

Autism is no longer considered a rare disease, and the Center for Disease Control now estimates that upwards of 730,000 children in the US struggle with this isolating brain disorder. New research is leading to greater understanding of and ability to treat the disorder at an earlier age. It is hoped that further genetic and imaging studies will lead to biologically based diagnostic techniques that could help speed detection and allow early, more effective intervention.

Edited by two leaders in the field, this volume offers a current survey and synthesis of the most important findings of the neuroscience behind autism of the past 20 years. With chapters authored by experts in each topic, the volume explores etiology, neuropathology, imaging, and pathways/models. Offering a broad background of ASDs with a unique focus on neurobiology, the volume offers more than the others on the market with a strictly clinical focus or a single authored perspective that fails to offer expert, comprehensive coverage. Researchers and graduate students alike with an interest in developmental disorders and autism will benefit, as will autism specialists across psychology and medicine looking to expand their expertise.
*Uniquely explores ASDs from a neurobiological angle, looking to uncover the molecular/cellular basis rather than to merely catalog the commonly used behavioral interventions
*Comprehensive coverage synthesizes widely dispersed research, serving as one-stop shopping for neurodevelopmental disorder researchers and autism specialists
*Edited work with chapters authored by leaders in the field around the globe - the broadest, most expert coverage available"

Caleb E. Finch
R1,476 Discovery Miles 14 760 Special order

Written by Caleb Finch, one of the leading scientists of our time, The Biology of Human Longevity - Inflammation, Nutrition, and Aging in the Evolution of Lifespans synthesizes several decades of top research on the topic of human aging and longevity particularly on the recent theories of inflammation and its effects on human health. The book expands a number of existing major theories, including the Barker theory of fetal origins of adult disease to consider the role of inflammation and Harmon's free radical theory of aging to include inflammatory damage. Future increases in lifespan are challenged by the obesity epidemic and spreading global infections which may reverse the gains made in lowering inflammatory exposure. This timely and topical book will be of interest to anyone studying aging from any scientific angle.
* Author Caleb Finch is a highly influential and respected scientist, ranked in the top half of the 1% most cited scientists
* Provides a novel synthesis of existing ideas about the biology of longevity and aging
* Incorporates important research findings from several disciplines, including Gerontology, Genomics, Neuroscience, Immunology, Nutrition

Some well-known age-related neurological diseases include Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, deafness, and blindness. Even more common are the problems of aging which are not due to disease but to more subtle impairments in neurobiological systems, including impairments in vision, memory loss, muscle weakening, and loss of reproductive functions, changes in body weight, and sleeplessness. As the average age of our society increases, diseases of aging continue to become more common, and conditions associated with aging need more attention by doctors and researchers. In 1991, patients over the age of 65 saw their doctors an average of eight times per year. Research funding is provided by the Neuroscience and Neuropsychology of Aging (NNA) Program, which is run by the National Institute on Aging. This book offers a comprehensive overview of all topics related to functional impairments which are related to the aging brain and nervous system. It is organized according to four general functions: movement, senses, memory, and neuroendocrine regulation. Written by the leading researchers in the field, this comprehensive work addresses both impairments associated with diseases and not associated with diseases, making it easier to understand the mechanisms involved. Functional Neurobiology of Aging is an important reference for professionals and students involved in aging research, as well as physicians who need to recognize and understand age-related impairments.
Key Features
* Organized by function, making it easy to find and understand the material
* Addresses impairments both associated with diseases and not associated with diseases
* Written by leading researchers in the field

Chemoarchitectonic Atlas of the Mouse Brain (Hardcover): George Paxinos, Charles Watson Chemoarchitectonic Atlas of the Mouse Brain (Hardcover)
George Paxinos, Charles Watson
R5,976 Discovery Miles 59 760 Special order

For over two decades, Paxinos and Watson's The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, now in its 6th edition, and Franklin and Paxinos' The Mouse Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, now in its 3rd edition, have been the most used neuroanatomy references for neuroscientists. Both the illustrations and nomenclature of the atlas have become standard tools used by almost all research neuroscientists who deal with anatomy, physiology, or function.
This new atlas represents the first time an accurate histochemical atlas showing the areas of the mouse brain in microscopic slides in a variety of different stains has been available. Until now researchers studying the mouse brain have been forced to consult the existing histochemical atlases of the rat brain (including Paxinos and Watson's) and extrapolate from rat data - a strategy which is not very accurate and often not successful. This atlas collects systematic images of the mouse brain stained with a range of key chemical markers to complement The Mouse Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates.
* 350 sections of the mouse brain, stained serially with Nissl and six chemical markers (parvalbumin, calbindin, calretinin, tyrosine hydroxylase, NADPH diaphorase, and GAD)
* Features diagrams in addition to the sections
* Sections are labelled on the photographs
* Newly developed format showing 7 photographs and one diagram on each open book page in a 14"x11" format facilitates use in the laboratory
* Fills a huge gap in detailed information on the mouse brain
* Features neuromeric borders based on the system developed in Puelles et al. Atlas of the Chick Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates (2007)
* The perfect partner to the stereotaxic atlases and references published by Elsevier

The second edition offers an introduction to and description of the methodology, the 3D anatomy of individual tracts, and a series of color-coded orientation maps to delineate white matter anatomy in a slice-by-slice manner. Improvements over the 1st edition include: full segmentation of up to 176 regions of the brain, added definitions of gray matter to further understanding between white and gray matter structures, andthe addition of standardized stereotaxic coordinates. The atlasserves as avaluable resource for clinicians, researchers and graduate students in neuroscience, neurology, neurosurgery and radiology.
Visualization of brain white matter anatomy via 3D diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) contrasts and enhances relationship of anatomy to functionFull segmentation of 170+ brain regions more clearly defines structure boundaries than previous point-and-annotate anatomical labeling, andconnectivity is mapped in a way not provided by traditional atlasesElectronic files with viewing software can be made available via CD and/or BrainNavigator, allowing readers access to raw image files"
