Brain mechanisms and intelligence; a quantitative study of injuries to the brain by Karl S Lashley( Book )
52 editions published between 1929 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 1,298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
(From the 1929 text) The experiments reported in the following pages are a continuation of a program for an analysis of the neural mechanisms which play a part in learning. /// Results are interpreted in relation to current theories and have perhaps made wider applications than their limited character justifies. The experiments constitute the first attempt to apply quantitative methods to both neurological and behavior data. They show that the method is capable of giving consistent results relevant to the fundamental problems of the nature and mechanisms and learning and problem-solving. /// The experiments in the following study . . . have developed out of the necessity of seeking explanations for facts which have evolved as the work progressed. It was undertaken primarily to discover whether or not the quantitative relationship previously found between cerebral injury and the retention of the habit of brightness discrimination would hold for a habit of a different type. It gave the result that relearning of the maze after cerebral insult might require many times more practice than initial learning. This led to the series of experiments dealing with the influence of cerebral lesions upon the initial formation of a variety of habits, which are reported as logically first.

Birds: brain and behavior by Irving J Goodman( Book )
1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Birds: Brain and Behavior is a collection of papers that discusses brain-behaviors problems concentrating on the bird's complex and well-integrated central nervous system. This collection reviews the theoretical and methodological problems concerning comparative studies of bird behavior in a brain-behavior relationship. The book explains the structural organization of the avian brain including the spinal cord and the general ascending/descending patterns of sensory projections. One paper analyzes the hearing and vocalization in songbirds that are composed of the auditory mechanisms, as well as
The organism : a holistic approach to biology derived from pathological data in man by Kurt Goldstein( Book )
4 editions published between 1939 and 1963 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book notes that an understanding of the relations of mind and body is difficult due to many seemingly paradoxical facts. The controversies over localization of functions, reflex and organismal theories, mechanism and vitalism express the inconsistency of the results of investigations. This author considers the problem of neural and behavioral organization from a broadly biological point of view. Goldstein's investigations of visual disorders and of aphasia revealed fundamental disturbances of thought and personality of which the recognized symptoms are only a superficial expression. From these studies has grown the conception of behavior as a result of a unified activity of the organism, which is the theme of this book. The data presented go far toward a solution of the apparent contradictions between the facts of elementary nervous activity and those derived from the study of cerebral function by showing that functions of parts are dependent in large measure upon the total setting in which they occur. The author's interpretation avoids many of the difficulties of both reflexology and vitalism and provides an alternative view for those whose scientific aims are satisfied neither by extreme oversimplification of facts nor by postulation of forces which cannot be investigated.
