Analysis of Periodic Processes in Psychophysiological Research    http://terpconnect.umd.edu/~sporges/bohrer.htm  [ Edit ]  Site Reviews(0)
...Periodicities in physiological activity convey important information regarding central nervous system regulation. This is true not only for the study of electro-cortical activity like the EEG, but also for peripheral systems such as heart rate and EMG. In our research the amplitude of heart rate rhythms has provided reliable diagnostic information regarding the status of the central nervous system. ...

Brainclinics    http://www.brainclinics.com/  [ Edit ]  Site Reviews(0)
...Brainclinics (BC) is specialized in Personalized Medicine, diagnostic services and treatment of brain related disorders (such as ADHD and rTMS treatment for Depression). Brainclinics carries out applied brain research using techniques such as QEEG, neuropsychological assessments (IntegNeuro) and rTMS. This applied brain research serves the purpose of personalizing treatment and diagnosis in order to get more targeted and efficacious treatment. Brainclinics only employs evidence-based methods for assessments and treatment and BC is also intensively involved in Research. Brainclinics is closely affiliated with the Brain Resource Company and also uses the International Brain Database for it's diagnostic services. ...

Depression and the Birth and Death of Brain Cells    http://www.americanscientist.org/issues/feature/2000/4/depression-and-the-birth-and-death-of-brain-c  [ Edit ]  Site Reviews(0)
...Only a decade ago, most neuroscientists thought that neurogenesis (the production of new nerve cells) in human beings ended with adulthood. Now, however, it is clear that neurogenesis continues throughout life and may play an important role in adult brain function--including, as the authors propose, in the etiology of depression. Citing evidence that stress reduces neurogenesis and that the most effective antidepressive medications increase it, the authors suggest that the waning and waxing of neurogenesis in the hippocampus might trigger the precipitation of and recovery from episodes of clinical depression. ...

...The specific abilities that will be lost or affected by stroke depend on the extent of the brain damage and most importantly where in the brain the stroke occurred. The brain is an incredibly complex organ, and each area within the brain has responsibility for a particular function or ability. The brain is divided into four primary parts: the right hemisphere (or half), the left hemisphere, the cerebellum and the brain stem. ...

...Left-handers and ambidextrals routinely encounter difficulties in their daily lives that most right-handers do not fully appreciate. Most of these difficulties are trivial, annoying, and frustrating. But some problems encountered by left-handers and ambidextrals are serious, resulting in lifelong problems and/or physical injury. Many of the more serious problems may be avoided or overcome with a little basic understanding and a few simple coping strategies. ...

How We See: The First Steps of Human Vision    http://www.accessexcellence.org/AE/AEC/CC/vision_background.html  [ Edit ]  Site Reviews(0)
...Take a look around the room that you are in. Notice how the various images and colors that you see update constantly as you turn your head and re-direct your attention. Although the images appear to be seamless, each blending imperceptibly into the next, they are in reality being updated almost continuously by the vision apparatus of your eyes and brain. The seamless quality in the images that you see is possible because human vision updates images, including the details of motion and color, on a time scale so rapid that a "break in the action" is almost never perceived. ...

...The primary goal of the ICBM project is the continuing development of a probabilistic reference system for the human brain. Over the course of this project, we have succeeded in building and expanding the tools available to establish this reference system for structural and functional anatomy on both macroscopic (in vivo) and microscopic (post mortem) levels. To date, we have incorporated data from over 7,000 subjects into this system along with an extensive collection of human cyto- and chemoarchitecture. ...

Lateral Interactions in the Cortex: Structure and Function    http://nn.cs.utexas.edu/web-pubs/htmlbook96/  [ Edit ]  Site Reviews(0)
...In the last few years, several new results on the structure, development, and functional role of lateral connectivity in the cortex have emerged. These results have led to a new understanding of the cortex as a continuously-adapting dynamic system shaped by competitive and cooperative lateral interactions. This book brings together eleven computational investigations, each from a slightly different perspective and level aiming to explain what function the lateral interactions could play in the development and information processing in the cortex. ...
