Languages of the brain : experimental paradoxes and principles in neuropsychology by Karl H Pribram( Book )

Biology of memory by Karl H Pribram( Book )

23 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biology of Memory investigates the biological basis of memory and covers topics ranging from short- and long-term post-perceptual memory to memory storage processes, memory microstructures, chemical transfer, and neuronal plasticity. The activity of neuronal networks in the thalamus of the monkey is also examined, along with integrative functions of the thalamocortical visual system of the cat.Comprised of 20 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the mechanisms that inhibit or interfere with short- and long-term memory, followed by a discussion on different retrieval mechanisms for short- and long-term memory. The reader is then introduced to the role of short- and long-term memory in the formation, retention, and utilization of associations, together with the link between memory and the medial temporal regions of the brain. Subsequent chapters focus on anatomical and chemical changes in the brain during primary learning; cellular models of learning and cellular mechanisms of plasticity in Aplysia; trace phenomena in single neurons of hippocampus and mammiliary bodies; and plasticity in single units in the mammalian brain. The book concludes with a description of Occam (Omnium-Gatherum Core Content Addressable Memory), a computer program for a content addressable memory in the central nervous system. This monograph will be useful to biologists, behavioral psychologists, neuropsychologists, neurophysiologists, biophysicists, and biochemists as well as computer scientists and mathematicians

Brain and perception : holonomy and structure in figural processing by Karl H Pribram( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented as a series of lectures, this important volume achieves four major goals: 1) It integrates the results of the author's research as applied to pattern perception -- reviewing current brain research and showing how several lines of inquiry have been converging to produce a paradigm shift in our understanding of the neural basis of figural perception. 2) It updates the holographic hypothesis of brain function in perception. 3) It emphasizes the fact that both distributed (holistic) and localized (structural) processes characterize brain function. 4)
Brain and behaviour by Karl H Pribram( Book )

11 editions published between 1967 and 1969 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plans and the structure of behavior by George A Miller( Book )

40 editions published between 1960 and 1986 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The notions of a Plan that guides behavior and an Image which is all the accumulated, organized knowledge that the organism has about itself and its world are the central topics of this book. The book explores the relationship between the Image and the Plan, and considers whether cybernetic ideas have any relevance for psychology.

Learning as self-organization( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A year before his death, B.F. Skinner wrote that ""There are two unavoidable gaps in any behavioral account: one between the stimulating action of the environment and the response of the organism and one between consequences and the resulting change in behavior. Only brain science can fill those gaps. In doing so, it completes the account; it does not give a different account of the same thing."" This declaration ended the epoch of radical behaviorism to the extent that it was based on the doctrine of the ""empty organism, "" the doctrine that a behavioral science must be constructed purely on
Rethinking neural networks : quantum fields and biological data : proceedings of the First Appalachian Conference on Behavioral Neurodynamics by Karl H Pribram( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The result of the first Appalachian Conference on neurodynamics, this volume focuses on processing in biological neural networks. How do brain processes become organized during decision making? That is, what are the neural antecedents that determine which course of action is to be pursued? Half of the contributions deal with modelling synapto-dendritic and neural ultrastructural processes; the remainder, with laboratory research findings, often cast in terms of the models. The interchanges at the conference and the ensuing publication also provide a foundation for further meetings. These will
The form within : my point of view by Karl H Pribram( )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fascinating story of two hundred years of pioneering brain research. Pribram takes us on a compelling journey from the dawn of our collective "recorded perceptions" in cave paintings to our greatest achievements as a species. He explains the important task of mapping the brain; the discovery of our holographic processing of memory and perception; and the detailed research that has created our understanding of self-organizing biological systems
Brain and values : is a biological science of values possible by Karl H Pribram( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This 5th volume of the Appalachian Conference discusses how the brain processes information, the role of memory and value, and models of creativity. It pursues aspects of cognitive neuroscience and behavioral neurodynamics, such as the topic of values and quantum-distributed processing in the brain."--Provided by publisher
Scale in conscious experience : is the brain too important to be left to the specialists to study?( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and Spanish and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the result of the third Appalachian Conference on Behavioral Neurodynamics which focused on the problem of scale in conscious experience. Set against the philosophical view of ""eliminative materialism, "" the purpose of this conference was to facilitate communication among investigators who approach the study of consciousness and conscious phenomena from a variety of analytical levels. One speculative outcome of the conference is that the columnar arrangement within primary sensory cortices may provide the local isolation necessary for nonlocal interactions to occur. In

The hippocampus by Robert L Isaacson( )

11 editions published between 1975 and 1986 in English and Czech and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current volumes of The Hippocampus reflect the prodigious amount of work aimed at discovering the functions of this structure over the past decade. The hippocampus ideally lends itself to two types of study: (1) because of its regular and relatively simple cytoarchitecture, it can serve as a model for cortical processing in general, and (2) because of its size and central location, the role of the hippocampus in the total ecology of brain function poses an important challenge. We attempted to divide the contributions to Volumes 3 and 4 according to these two types of experimental aims. As always, however, when one makes dichotomies, one finds them inadequate in treating certain data and our attempt is no exception. There are contributions that do not fit the classification and there are others which fit both. In addition, there are manuscripts which we wanted to include but which the authors were not ready to submit at this time. Larry Squire, Mortimer Mishkin, and others are making important contributions which donot appear in these volumes except among references throughout. But this was also the case for Volumes 1 and 2 where we sorely miss the irreplaceable contributions of James Olds, Ross Adey, and Brenda Milner. Volume 4 is concerned primarily with the role of the hippocampus in the ecology of the brain in regulating behavior and experience. The contri­ butions have the potential to raise the level of our understanding considerably
