Wie kommt die Kultur in den Kopf?: Eine by Northoff

By Northoff

Alle reden vom Gehirn. Auch Annalena von Freihausen, in China aufgewachsene Kulturanthropologin, und der deutsche Neurowissenschaftler Felix Trittau tun dies. Und sie stolpern in ihren Gesprächen immer wieder über große Unterschiede in Wahrnehmung und Denken von Menschen verschiedener kultureller Herkunft. Tickt das Gehirn eines Chinesen anders als das eines Amerikaners? Lassen sich kulturelle Unterschiede in Gehirnstrukturen erkennen? Wie nehmen Menschen in verschiedenen Regionen der Welt Emotionen wahr, ihre eigenen ebenso wie die ihrer Mitmenschen? Wie kommt die Welt ins Gehirn - aber vor allem: Wie kommt die Kultur in Kopf?Fragen wie diese stehen im Mittelpunkt einer spannenden neuen Forschungsrichtung: der kulturellen Neurowissenschaften. Georg Northoff gelingt es in diesem ungewöhnlich Buch, deren Faszination einzufangen und eigene Denkprozesse anzuregen.

Advances in Research on Neurodegeneration: Volume 5: v. 5 by P. Riederer,D.B. Calne,R. Horowski,Y. Mizuno,W. Poewe,M.B.H.

By P. Riederer,D.B. Calne,R. Horowski,Y. Mizuno,W. Poewe,M.B.H. Youdim

quantity five of the sequence "Advances in study on Neurodegeneration" is worried with topics that are presently the point of interest of in depth examine, and during which advances in our knowing of the pathological mechanisms un­ derlying neurodegenerative ailments are anticipated within the close to destiny. the 1st part comprises 5 experiences dedicated to many of the neuroimaging technolo­ gies. The dialogue is worried with the query of even if neuroimaging strategies give the chance to stick to the method of degeneration because it happens, and which tools supply the necessary sensitivity and quantifiability for this objective. although, the query has to be tested of even if, given the actual and chemical barriers of those concepts, even less than optimum stipulations, anatomical solution might be enhanced to the level that neuro­ degenerative ailments will be clinically determined in advance of at the moment attainable and a convinced analysis made. the chances of utilizing neuroimaging innovations to supply information about the consequences of neuroprotective or neuroregen­ erative healing innovations, and for correlating the result of neuropsycho­ logical learn with imaging information also are mentioned. the second one part is worried with the importance of endogenous or exogenous neurotoxins as triggers for neurodegenerative tactics which could bring about Parkinsonism. Vulnerability components, which come with such elements as nerve finishing sensitivity, the synergistic results of gear and some of the mechanisms underlying assorted pollutants are discussed.

Origin of Anti-Tumor Immunity Failure in Mammals by Ivan Bubanovic

By Ivan Bubanovic

The heritage of technology has proven nearly all of hypotheses to be flawed. Sharp medical feedback and strictly managed experimental reports reject many of the hypotheses, abandoning just a small variety of assumptions and concepts. however, every one logical assumption must have its rightful position at the clinical “battlefield” speculated to examine its validity and ascertain its ultimate destiny. even if a speculation is inaccurate, it nonetheless unearths its position within the complete efforts of the humankind in the direction of achieving the medical fact. specifically, the incorrect hypotheses serve mostly to light up the way in which in the direction of the right kind ones or, no less than, to teach which approach to not stick with. right or now not, principles and hypotheses are useful for the growth of technological know-how. They epitomize the efforts of human proposal to explain nature with out experimental verification and within the situations of scant facts availability. eventually, hypotheses and ideas symbolize a symbiotic production of our wisdom and mind's eye, the 2 such a lot notable appearances within the evolution of humans.
