Cognitive biology : evolutionary and developmental perspectives on mind, brain, and behavior by Luca Tommasi( file )
15 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 1,877 libraries worldwide
In the past few decades, sources of inspiration in the multidisciplinary field of cognitive science have widened. In addition to ongoing vital work in cognitive and affective neuroscience, important new work is being conducted at the intersection of psychology and the biological sciences in general. This volume offers an overview of the cross-disciplinary integration of evolutionary and developmental approaches to cognition in light of these exciting new contributions from the life sciences. This research has explored many cognitive abilities in a wide range of organisms and developmental stages, and results have revealed the nature and origin of many instances of the cognitive life of organisms. Each section of this book deals with a key domain of cognition: spatial cognition; the relationships among attention, perception, and learning, representations of numbers and economic values; and social cognition. Contributors discuss each topic from the perspectives of psychology and neuroscience, brain theory and modeling, evolutionary theory, ecology, genetics, and developmental science
Cognitive neuroscience of emotion ( file )
21 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 1,836 libraries worldwide
"This unique book draws its inspiration from the belief that the role of cognition in emotion is an important yet relatively neglected aspect of cognitive neuroscience. By carefully examining underlying assumptions and the nature of the phenomena under investigation, editors and contributors reach the surprising conclusion that emotion - in all of its mystery and ineffability - can be studied without compromise within the field of cognitive neuroscience." "By gathering diverse strands of research from a host of contributors, Cognitive Neuroscience of Emotion is appropriate for a broad array of professionals, advanced undergraduates, and graduate students. It will undoubtedly become an essential resource for all those working in the fields of neuroscience, cognitive science, and psychology, and it will appeal to anyone interested in the neural underpinnings of human behavior."--Jacket

Handbook of spatial cognition by David Waller( Book )
14 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 513 libraries worldwide
Spatial cognition is a branch of cognitive psychology that studies how people acquire and use knowledge about their environment to determine where they are, how to obtain resources, and how to find their way home. Researchers from a wide range of disciplines, including neuroscience, cognition, and sociology, have discovered a great deal about how humans and other animals sense, interpret, behave in, and communicate about space. This book addresses some of the most important dimensions of spatial cognition, such as neuroscience, perception, memory, and language. It provides a broad yet detailed overview that is useful not only to academics, practitioners, and advanced students of psychology, but also to city planners, architects, software designers, sociologists, and anyone else who seeks to understand how we perceive, interpret, and interact with the world around us
Down syndrome : living and learning in the community by Lynn Nadel( Book )
14 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 489 libraries worldwide
Recent advances in medicine are allowing people with Down syndrome to live longer and more productively - while at the same time creating new medical and social challenges for them and the people who provide their care.

This book will prove an invaluable tool for parents and health care professionals, enabling people with Down syndrome to cope with the problems they face and participate to the fullest in community life
The hippocampus as a cognitive map by John O'Keefe( Book )
15 editions published in 1978 in English and Hungarian and held by 441 libraries worldwide
The Origin of values by Michael Hechter( Book )
11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 426 libraries worldwide
"Although values play a leading role in nearly every explanatory theory in the broad realm of the social and behavioral sciences, very little multidisciplinary research material on values is available. Addressing this need, the editors bring together distinguished social scientists, psychologists, and biologists who collaboratively explore fundamental questions about values: What are the determinants of social values, taboos, and ideologies? What are the determinants of individual values? What is the nature of motivations and rewards? Is there an evolutionary basis for the development of values?"--Back cover
The Psychobiology of Down syndrome by Lynn Nadel( Book )
16 editions published between 1988 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 380 libraries worldwide
This book covers recent research with neurobiological and cognitive features of Down syndrome. There has been notable progress in understanding the psychobiological concomitants of Down syndrome. New data have pinpointed selective neurological defects, and recent research has revealed that it is possible to work with the supposedly intractable, irreversible deficits accompanying Down syndrome. Surprising improvements in cognitive functions, including language, can be shown by children and even adolescents. The topics include: early concept learning in infants with Down syndrome (Jennifer Wishart); the emergence of language skills (Lars Smith), early lexical development (Caroline Mervis), and developmental asynchrony of language development in Down syndrome (Jon Miller); the use of computers with speech output to promote language use (Laura Meyers); differences between Down syndrome and normally developing children in the use of a number concept (Rochel Gelman); the neuropsychological status of older Down syndrome individuals (Krystyna Wisniewski); neuropathological (Thomas Kemper), psychobiological (Siegfried Peuschel), and neurophysiological (Eric Courchesne) aspects of Down syndrome; and the relation between Down syndrome and Alzheimer's disease (Michael Thase). Lynn Nadel is professor of psychology and research cognitive scientist at the University of Arizona, editor of Psychobiology, and a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the National Down Syndrome Society. The Psychobiology of Down Syndrome is included in the series Issues in the Biology of Language and Cognition, edited by John C. Marshall, and is sponsored by the National Down Syndrome Society.

Conscious will and responsibility ( Book )
19 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 353 libraries worldwide
"We all seem to think that we do the acts we do because we consciously choose to do them. This commonsense view is thrown into dispute by Benjamin Libet's eyebrow-raising experiments, which seem to suggest that conscious will occurs not befor but after the start of brain activity that produces physical action." "Libet's striking results are often claimed to undermine traditional views of free will and moral responsibility and also to have practical implications for criminal justice. His work has also stimulated a flurry of further fascinating scientific research--including findings in psychology by Dan Wegner and in neuroscience by John-Dylan Haynes--that raise novel questions about whether conscious will plays any causal role in action. Critics respond that both commonsense views of action and traditional theories of moral and legal responsibility, as well as free will, can survive the scientific onslaught of Libet and his progeny. To further this lively debate, Walter Sinnott-Armstrong and Lynn Nadel have brought together prominent experts in neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, and law to discuss whether our conscious choices really cause our actions, and what the answers to that question mean for how we view ourselves and how we should treat each other."--Jacket

Pattern formation in the physical and biological sciences by H. Frederik Nijhout( Book )
11 editions published between 1997 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 197 libraries worldwide
This Lecture Notes Volume represents the first time any of the summer school lectures have been collected and published on a discrete subject rather than grouping all of a season's lectures together. This volume provides a broad survey of current thought on the problem of pattern formation. Spanning six years of summer school lectures, it includes articles which examine the origin and evolution of spatial patterns in physio-chemical and biological systems from a great diversity of theoretical and mechanistic perspectives. In addition, most of these pieces have been updated by their authors and three articles never previously published have been added
