Most widely held works by Richard F Thompson
The amazing brain by Robert E Ornstein( Book )
29 editions published between 1984 and 2001 in 6 languages and held by 1,748 libraries worldwide
"The brain is like an old ramshackle house that has been added on to over the years in a rather disorganized fashion. In this book, we look at the architecture of that house, first by taking a tour through the various "rooms" and then by going deeper and deeper into the material with which those rooms are constructed. Later we consider some of the mysteries of the brain and human experience. The drawings and diagrams appearing throughout will help you to visualize some of the more complex aspects of the amazing organ that is the human brain."--[from preface]
Foundations of physiological psychology by Richard F Thompson( Book )
74 editions published between 1965 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 1,269 libraries worldwide

The brain : an introduction to neuroscience by Richard F Thompson( Book )
37 editions published between 1985 and 2001 in English and held by 1,108 libraries worldwide
This text describes the functioning of the brain and its nerve cells aimed at the student. It presents an overview of brain anatomy and physiology, from molecules to the mind, and ends with talks on learning and memory, language and consciousness
Memory : the key to consciousness by Richard F Thompson( Book )
23 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,094 libraries worldwide
"Focusing on cutting-edge research in behavioral sciences and neuroscience, Memory, the second title in the Science Essentials series, is a primer of our current scientific understanding of the mechanics of memory and learning. During the past two decades, memory research has accelerated and we have seen an explosion of new knowledge about the brain. For example, there now exists a wide-ranging and successful applied science devoted specifically and exclusively to the study of memory that has yielded better procedures for eliciting valid recollections in legal settings and improved our track record for diagnosing and treating memory disorders."--BOOK JACKET
Bioelectric recording techniques by Richard F Thompson( Book )
66 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 896 libraries worldwide
Bioelectric Recording Techniques Part B: Electroencephalography and Human Brain Potentials is part of the multivolume series Methods in Physiological Psychology. The series begins with the treatment of bioelectric recording techniques in three volumes (Parts A, B, and C). Part B deals with electroencephalography (EEG) and peripheral recording of brain events in man. The book is organized into three parts. The first part deals with EEG recording in animals and man, beginning with a historical review of EEG recording and a comprehensive discussion of modern techniques and experimental problems i

This reference provides a clear understanding of the basic mechanisms of synaptic transmission and information processing and illustrates potential clinical applications for the recovery of lost function as a result of gene defects, injury, or disease-relating the most recent advances in the design of new therapeutics, the treatment of neurological disease and age-related loss of cognitive function, rehabilitation therapy, and neural engineering and computation

Advances in synaptic plasticity by M Baudry( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 220 libraries worldwide
Many neurons exhibit plasticity; that is, they can change structurally or functionally, often in a lasting way. Plasticity is evident in such diverse phenomena as learning and memory, brain development, drug tolerance, sprouting of axon terminals after a brain lesion, and various cellular forms of activity-dependent synaptic plasticity such as long-term potentiation and long-term depression. This book, a follow-up to the editors' Synaptic Plasticity (MIT Press, 1993), reports on the most recent trends in the field. The levels of analysis range from molecular to cellular and network, the unifying theme being the nature of the relationships between synaptic plasticity and information processing and storage.
