Brain Imaging: A Guide for Clinicians is designed to provide a foundation of information necessary for those wishing to integrate brain imaging into their practice, or to those who currently review brain scans but have minimal formal training in neuroimaging. The guide covers a range of topics important to those using brain imaging, such as the strengths and weaknesses of the many different Cited by: 5.   As molecular biology and imaging techniques are of increasing importance to basic and clinical neuroscience, these areas have also been extended to illustrate their relevance to our understanding of psychopharmacology. This book is essential reading for undergraduates in pharmacology and the neurosciences, postgraduate neuropharmacologists. These stereotypes waived on the new brain sciences by social scientists is that neurobiologists consider the human brain in isolation from its social milieu; that they use simplistic brain imaging techniques or animal models to infer conclusions based on dubious assumptions; and that their claims to improve mental capabilities or cure brain Cited by: Psychopharmacology: Drugs, the Brain and Behavior Recent advances in molecular pharmacology and brain imaging have revolutionized our understanding of how psychoactive drugs work. Medical books Psychopharmacology. Now, from the authors of Principles of Neuropsychopharmacology, comes a new undergraduate textbook integrating these developments.

Neuroimaging or brain imaging is the use of various techniques to either directly or indirectly image the structure, function, or pharmacology of the nervous is a relatively new discipline within medicine, neuroscience, and psychology. Physicians who specialize in the performance and interpretation of neuroimaging in the clinical setting are e: indirectly(directly) image structure, function/pharmacology of the nervous system. Psychopharmacology: Drugs, the Brain and Behavior is unique in its breadth of coverage, ranging from historical accounts of drug use to clinical and preclinical behavioral studies to the latest research on drug effects in transgenic mouse Size: KB. The era of the New Brain is upon us. Once a mysterious, hidden organ locked within our skulls, modern brain science now provides us with insights about the brain that only a few decades ago would have been considered the stuff of science fiction/5. Illusion continues to be a major theme in the book, which provides a comprehensive classification system. There are also sections on what babies see and how they learn to see, on motion perception, the relationship between vision and consciousness, and on the impact of new brain imaging techniques.

To open the book, von Euler provides an interesting synopsis of how the once simple concept of chemical neurotransmission has grown into synapfic systems involving multifactorial transmission mediated by coexisting molecules.   The New Brain is the story of technology and biology converging to influence the evolution of the human brain. Dramatic advances are now possible, as well as the potential for misuse and abuse. Dr. Restak, author of more than 15 books on the brain, leads you through the latest research and the expanding field of cognitive science, explains its Author: Richard Restak.
