The age of insight : the quest to understand the unconscious in art, mind, and brain : from Vienna 1900 to the present by Eric R Kandel( Book )

25 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and German and held by 1,582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A brilliant book by a Nobel Prize winner, "The Age of Insight" takes readers to Vienna in 1900, where leaders in science, medicine, and art began a revolution that changed forever how we think about the human mind--our conscious and unconscious thoughts and emotions--and how mind and brain relate to art
Reductionism in art and brain science : Bridging the two cultures by Eric R Kandel( )

12 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 1,208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can science and art find common ground? Are scientific and artistic quests mutually exclusive? In this new book, neuroscientist Eric Kandel, whose interests span the fields of science and art, explores how reductionism-the distillation of larger scientific or aesthetic concepts into smaller, more tractable ideas-has been used by scientists and artists alike to pursue their respective truths. Their common use of reductionist strategies demonstrates how science can inform the way we experience a work of art and seek to understand its meaning. Kandel draws on his Nobel Prize-winning work studying the neurobiological underpinnings of learning and memory in the humble sea slug, whose simple brain helps illuminate the complex workings of higher animal minds. He extends these findings to the complexities of human perception, which uses bottom-up sensory and top-down cognitive functions to perceive the world and to appreciate and understand works of art. At the heart of this book is an elegant elucidation of the pivotal contribution of reductionism to modern art's extraordinary evolution and to its role in a monumental shift in artistic perspective
Memory : from mind to molecules by Larry R Squire( Book )

28 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 1,159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The disordered mind : what unusual brains tell us about ourselves by Eric R Kandel( Book )

13 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eric R. Kandel, the winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his foundational research into memory storage in the brain, is one of the pioneers of modern brain science. His work continues to shape our understanding of how learning and memory work and to break down age-old barriers between the sciences and the arts. In his seminal new book, The Disordered Mind, Kandel draws on a lifetime of pathbreaking research and the work of many other leading neuroscientists to take us on an unusual tour of the brain. He confronts one of the most difficult questions we face: How does our mind, our individual sense of self, emerge from the physical matter of the brain? The brain's 86 billion neurons communicate with one another through very precise connections. But sometimes those connections are disrupted. The brain processes that give rise to our mind can become disordered, resulting in diseases such as autism, depression, schizophrenia, Parkinson's, addiction, and post-traumatic stress disorder. While these disruptions bring great suffering, they can also reveal the mysteries of how the brain produces our most fundamental experiences and capabilities--the very nature of what it means to be human. Studies of autism illuminate the neurological foundations of our social instincts; research into depression offers important insights on emotions and the integrity of the self; and paradigm-shifting work on addiction has led to a new understanding of the relationship between pleasure and willpower. By studying disruptions to typical brain functioning and exploring their potential treatments, we will deepen our understanding of thought, feeling, behavior, memory, and creativity. Only then can we grapple with the big question of how billions of neurons generate consciousness itself

11 editions published in 1976 in English and Italian and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychiatry, psychoanalysis, and the new biology of mind by Eric R Kandel( Book )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brought together for the first time in a single volume, these eight essays by Nobel Prize-winning psychiatrist Eric Kandel provide a breakthrough perspective on how biology has influenced modern psychiatric thought. The author's unique perspective on both psychoanalysis and biological research has led to breakthroughs in our thinking about neurobiology, psychiatry, and psychoanalysis--all driven by the central idea that a fuller understanding of the biological processes of learning and memory can illuminate our understanding of behavior and its disorders
In search of memory : the neuroscientist Eric Kandel, winner of the Nobel Prize( Visual )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life and work of one of the most important neuroscientists of the 20th century, Nobel Prize winner Eric Kandel. A compelling blend of autobiography and history that recounts the life of one of the most important neuroscientists of the 20th century and illuminates scientific developments in our understanding of the brain's role in recording and preserving memory. In addition to archival footage and dramatic re-creations of Kandel's childhood experiences in Nazi-occupied Vienna and his formative years as an emigrant in New York, the film features discussions with Kandel, friends and family, as well as his public lectures in Vienna and New York, which explore both his professional and personal life, especially his emotional ties to Judaism

La mémoire : de l'esprit aux molécules by Larry R Squire( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in French and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comment expliquer que des souvenirs s'effacent quand d'autres demeurent vivaces ? Comment expliquer une amnésie partielle ou totale ? Pourquoi certaines personnes oublient-elles systématiquement un événement qui vient de se produire ? Pourquoi d'autres possèdent-elles des connaissances qu'elles ne se rappellent pas avoir acquises ? Depuis quelques années, des progrès spectaculaires ont été accomplis dans la compréhension du fonctionnement de la mémoire. Larry R. Squire et Eric R. Kandel, scientifiques éminents, nous proposent une synthèse unique sur les mécanismes de la mémoire humaine et animale à travers les découvertes permettant de décrire les différents systèmes de mémoire (mémoire déclarative/non déclarative, mémoire épisodique, de travail, habitude, conditionnement, etc.) et le stockage mnésique. Ils s'appuient aussi bien sur les travaux utilisant l'imagerie fonctionnelle que sur les études psychologiques et neurophysiologiques d'animaux et de patients atteints de troubles de la mémoire. Ils analysent certains dysfonctionnements, telles l'amnésie, la maladie d'Alzheimer et les pertes de mémoire liées au vieillissement. Les auteurs ouvrent ainsi un nouveau champ de recherche : la biologie moléculaire de la cognition, qui conjugue les apports des neurosciences, de la psychologie cognitive, de la biologie et de la génétique moléculaires. La mémoire pourrait être bientôt le premier exemple d'un processus cognitif accessible à l'analyse moléculaire. Et cette avancée promet de révolutionner la médecine, puisqu'elle laisse entrevoir des possibilités de traitement pour certains troubles, voire pour la maladie d'Alzheimer
Memory : organization and locus of change by Larry R Squire( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in German and Chinese and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together an internationally respected group of researchers for the purpose of examining neuroplasticity, a topic of immense current interest in psychology, neuroscience, neuropsychology, and clinical neurology. The chapters represent state-of-the-art work on neuroplasticity at all levels: behavioural, neural, and molecular. They describe recent work on memory ranging from cellular morphological studies in invertebrates to research on the human brain made possible by new advances in neuroimaging technology. The book begins with an introductory chapter that considers the psychology of memory at the global, structural level. The remainder of the volume is divided into three parts. The first focuses on recent approaches, which are based in part on new technology, that aim to measure and describe activity in relatively large populations of neurons. The second focuses on memory at the level of brain systems. One major theme to emerge from work at this level is that memory is composed of multiple, separable components that can be identified with specific anatomical structures and connections.; The third part of the book focuses on molecular and cellular studies that show how individual neurons and their synapses behave in a history-dependent manner. This research concerns both brief changes in synaptic plasticity as well as more lasting changes in connectivity, which depend on altered gene expression and contemporary research on the biology of memory

Auf der Suche nach dem Gedächtnis( Visual )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in German and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Für Eric Kandel gibt es "nichts im Universum, das komplexer ist als das menschliche Gehirn - es ist phantastisch." Seit 50 Jahren widmet sich der Medizin-Nobelpreisträger der Hirnforschung. Im Fokus seiner Forschungen stand stets das Gedächtnis. Er entdeckte, daß durch Veränderungen der Nervenzellen Erinnerungen möglich werden, und sorgte damit für eine sensationelle Erkenntnis: der Geist ist Materie. Der Film dokumentiert Kandels traumatische Kindheit in Wien während der Nazizeit, den spannenden Laboralltag des Wissenschaftlers an seinem Institut an der Columbia University in New York und führt ins Zentrum seiner Forschungen - dorthin, wo unsere Erinnerungen im Gehirn gespeichert sind.

À la recherche de la mémoire : une nouvelle théorie de l'esprit by Eric R Kandel( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in French and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comment le cerveau crée-t-il nos souvenirs, qui sont la chair même de notre vie mentale ? il y a une cinquantaine d'années, la simple idée qu'on pourrait expliquer la mémoire et d'autres aspects de l'esprit en termes biologiques semblait absurde. Aujourd'hui, c'est devenu une réalité (4e de couv.)
