Most widely held works by Leon N Cooper
Theory of cortical plasticity by Leon N Cooper( )
17 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Theory of Cortical Plasticity, Nobel Laureate LeonCooper and his collaborators present a systematic development of theBienenstock, Cooper and Munro (BCM) theory of synaptic plasticity, anddiscuss experiments that test both its assumptions and consequences. This insightful book provides an elegant analysis of theoreticalstructure in neuroscience research, and elucidates the role BCM theoryhas played in guiding research leading to our present understanding ofthe mechanisms underlying cortical plasticity
BCS 50 years by Leon N Cooper( )
19 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The BCS theory of superconductivity developed in 1957 by Bardeen, Cooper and Schrieffer has been remarkably successful in explaining the properties of superconductors. In addition, concepts from BCS have been incorporated into diverse fields of physics, from nuclear physics and dense quark matter to the current standard model. Practical applications include SQUIDs, magnetic resonance imaging, superconducting electronics and the transmission of electricity. This invaluable book is a compilation of both a historical account and a discussion of the current state of theory and experiment. With contributions from many prominent scientists, it aims to introduce students and researchers to the origins, the impact and the current state of the BCS theory
An introduction to the meaning and structure of physics by Leon N Cooper( Book )
23 editions published between 1968 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How we learn, how we remember : toward an understanding of brain and neural systems : selected papers of Leon N. Cooper by Leon N Cooper( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Leon Cooper's somewhat peripatetic career has resulted in work in quantum field theory, superconductivity, the quantum theory of measurement as well as the mechanisms that underly learning and memory. He has written numerous essays on a variety of subjects as well as a highly regarded introduction to the ideas and methods of physics for non-physicists. Among the many accolades, he has received (some deserved) one he likes specially is the comment of an anonymous reviewer who characterized him as "a nonsense physicist". This compilation of papers presents the evolution of his thinking on mechanisms of learning, memory storage and higher brain function. The first half proceeds from early models of memory and synaptic plasticity to a concrete theory that has been put into detailed correspondence with experiment and leads to the very current exploration of the molecular basis for learning and memory storage. The second half outlines his efforts to investigate the properties of neural network systems and to explore to what extent they can be applied to real world problems. In all this collection, hopefully, provides a coherent, no-nonsense, account of a line of research that leads to present investigations into the biological basis for learning and memory storage and the information processing and classification properties of neural systems
Physics : structure and meaning by Leon N Cooper( Book )
4 editions published between 1970 and 1992 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Science and human experience : values, culture and the mind by Leon N Cooper( )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Does science have limits? Where does order come from? Can we understand consciousness? Written by Nobel Laureate Leon N. Cooper, this book places pressing scientific questions in the broader context of how they relate to human experience. Widely considered to be a highly original thinker, Cooper has written and given talks on a large variety of subjects, ranging from the relationship between art and science, possible limits of science, to the relevance of the Turing Test. These essays and talks have been brought together for the first time in this fascinating book, giving readers an opportunity to experience Cooper's unique perspective on a range of subjects. Tackling a diverse spectrum of topics, from the conflict of faith and science to whether understanding neural networks could lead to machines that think like humans, this book will captivate anyone interested in the interaction of science with society"--

Correlation of afferent activity and binocular receptive field properties by Michael A Paradiso( Book )
2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A theoretical model of synaptic plasticity is used to examine the importance of the correlation of left eye and right eye afferent activities for the development of binocular receptive field properties in visual cortex. Generally, cortical cells that receive less binocularly correlated activity become less binocular. We argue that larger disparity decreases correlation and larger receptive field size increases correlation. Therefore, the consequences of normal uncorrelated activity are: first, disparity selective neurons that are optimally stimulated at the horopter tend to be more binocular than cells selective for nonzero disparities. Second, cortical cells with large receptive fields tend to be more binocular and can maintain larger disparities than small-field cells. Third, low levels of uncorrelated activity allow changes in ocular dominance that accentuate any ocular dominance organization present prior to visual experience. The model also readily accounts for the loss of binocularity caused by monocular deprivation, alternating occlusion, and strabismus
