The complexity of the brain, the house of human consciousness, is so great that scientists are still mystified as to how it works. For a student, learning the various cellular organizations, cranial nerves, and neural connections can be an intimidating challenge. The Human Brain Coloring Workbook is a break-through approach to understanding the brain's organization and functions. It features 125 striking, computer-generated illustrations that will help students gain a clear and enduring comprehension of this highly intricate structure. Learning interactively through coloring thoroughly fixes concepts in the mind and takes less time than memorizing from textbooks. The ideas behind each lesson are amply explained, and more complex subjects are approached through the gradual introduction of simple drawings. After completing the lessons in this book, not only will you understand the brain's basic configurations and functions, you will also have a fully colored and labeled resource ready for review whenever you need to brush up. This book is an invaluable and lasting resource for students in a number of disciplines, including medicine, anatomy and physiology, biology, psychology, nursing, rehabilitation, health administration, medical technology, and nutrition. The 125 plates in the book are organized in the following sections: *Central Nervous System Development *The Meninges *The Cerebral Hemispheres *The Cranial Nerves *The Ventricular System and Cerebrospinal Fluid *The Limbic System *The Thalamic Complex *The Basal Ganglia *The Brainstream *The Cerebellum *The Cerebrovascular System *Neuronal Conduction *The Autonomic Nervous System *The Ascending and Descending Neuronal Tracts *Atlas of Human Brain Sections
This brand new resource provides a solid, comprehensive and accessible foundation in neurosciences for undergraduates and pre-registration postgraduate students. Using a multidisciplinary approach, it will guide students in their understanding of the most commonly found problems in neurological rehabilitation and inform their clinical practice. The book starts with the foundation of basic neurosciences, covering the normal function and structure of the nervous system from the organism as a whole through to the molecular level. It also introduces perceptuo-motor control and learning - topics that lie at the heart of rehabilitation. The book then goes on to discuss problems that allied health professionals commonly encounter in neurological rehabilitation. Topics covered include problems with perception and movement, planning, attention and memory, communication, motivation and emotion, sleep, continence and sexuality. The book also introduces key theories and evidence underpinning both behavioural and pharmacotherapeutic interventions used in neurologcial rehabilitation. The book closes by summarising current principles underpinning best practice and also looks to the future by identifying gaps in evidence-based practice with ideas for future research and what the future may hold for neurological rehabilitation. Throughout, a variety of supplementary information boxes point towards additional material such as Case Studies which highlight the clinical relevance of topics discussed; and a variety of Research Boxes which refer to more advanced material and/or original research studies. Each chapter ends with self-assessment questions which will check progress and prompt students to reflect on how the information presented in the chapter could be applied to clinical practice. Written by a multidisciplinary team, highly experienced in teaching, research and clinical practice Lays the foundation of basic neurosciences for allied health students Accessible and comprehensive text Introduces students to key theories and evidence underpinning neurological rehabilitation Focuses on clinically relevant information End of chapter self-assessment questions of different levels of complexity
Key concepts in neuroscience presented for the non-medical reader. A fresh take on contemporary brain science, this book presents neuroscience—the scientific study of brain, mind, and behavior—in easy-to-understand ways with a focus on concepts of interest to all science readers. Rigorous and detailed enough to use as a textbook in a university or community college class, it is at the same time meant for any and all readers, clinicians and non-clinicians alike, interested in learning about the foundations of contemporary brain science. From molecules and cells to mind and consciousness, the known and the mysterious are presented in the context of the history of modern biology and with an eye toward better appreciating the beauty and growing public presence of brain science.
A simplified and effective approach to learning about microbes. Uses the same color-coding techniques found in the series to help students learn and retain more information on standard microbiological concepts such as immune response and viral replication.
Including numerous views, cross-sections, and other diagrams, this entertaining instruction guide includes careful, scientifically accurate line renderings of the body's organs and major systems: skeletal, muscular, nervous, reproductive, and more. Each remarkably clear and detailed illustration is accompanied by concise, informative text and suggestions for coloring. 43 plates.
Fuller's insightful book provides addicts, counselors, and laypeople with deeper insight into the already complicated lives of addicts whose selfish brains produce the erratic behaviors that cannot be turned off with demands, threats, or pleadings. (Motivation)
