Neural Substrates of Memory Affective Functions and Conscious Experience Book Review:

It is important, indeed necessary, we believe, that the study of the higher brain func tions be introduced by a brief account of the evolution of the philosophical thinking and scientific researches on cognition. The intuition that sensations and intelligence reside in the brain goes back to the Egyptians, in particular the Edwin Smith papyrus, probably dated between 2500 and 3000 b. c. , where the term "brain" appears for the first time and where there is a description of its coverings (meninges) and circumvolutions (Walsh 1994). The philosophical debate on brain and mind made its appearance in ancient l Greece and in subsequent centuries developed among the philosophers. The flow of sensations, the process of thinking, and the site of reason were localized in the brain, according to Alcmaeon of Croton (sixth to fifth centuries b. c. ) and subsequently Lattanzio, Alexander of Tralles, Democritus, Anaxagoras, and particularly Hip pocrates (460-377 b. c. ), who placed the soul, envisaged as a mental function, in the brain. Plato (427-347 b. c. ) believed that the brain provided the sensory experiences (hearing, sight, smell) and that from these were generated thinking and memory, and the act of thinking produced the truth or "episteme. " The formulation of the problem changes radically with Aristotle (384-322 b. c. ), who believed that the heart, and not the brain, was the site of passions, feelings, intelligence, and thought (Gross 1995).

Chronic Headaches Book Review:

This is the first new book in many years to provide a comprehensive review of the latest theory, research, and treatment of chronic headaches from a biopsychological perspective. It is designed to make the tools of assessment and therapy widely accessible, while placing them in the context of how the disorders arise. The physiology and psychology of pain, and each disorder, are reviewed in an accessible manner. Clinical experience, laboratory data, and illustrative vignettes aid in treatment selection. Part I introduces the major types of headaches and provides a comprehensive review of pain. Part II details the major forms of headaches—migraine, tension-type, cluster, secondary, and headaches in children. A clinical presentation introduces each type of headache, followed by the physiological and psychological underpinnings and their implications for assessing and treating patients. Part III serves as a clinical guide for practitioners. The book closes with an analysis of how well the treatments work, the mechanisms behind the efficacy, and guidelines for treatment matching. A range of practical tools is incorporated. Clinical evaluation is reviewed in depth, including the interview, psychometrics, and psychophysiological assessment. Key sections of the 2004 International Headache Society diagnostic criteria serve as a “mini” diagnostic manual. Tables allow rapid look-up of the various disorders and their distinguishing characteristics; trigger point referral patterns; and the comparative merits of migraine medications. Blank headache diaries, appropriate for various stages of treatment, serve as models. A relaxation exercise is provided, as are muscle tension and hand temperature norms. Key terms are defined in the extensive glossary to help psychologists and medical professionals share vocabulary. Medical, herbal, and behavioral therapies are discussed in terms of the underlying science. Chronic Headaches is intended for healthcare providers, pain specialists, psychologists, researchers, and clinicians who study headaches in a variety of disciplines. This accessible, student-tested text is ideal for graduate courses on the psychology of pain and/or chronic headaches. Readers will gain expertise in headaches and a clear sense of how to translate this knowledge into clinical practice.

Neural Control of Reproduction Book Review:

Reproductive processes in mammals consist of a series of physiological events: spermatogenesis, follicular growth, ovulation, progestational stage, gestation, parturition and postpartum nurturing, including lactation. In order for offspring to be reproduced effectively, these processes must proceed in the proper chronological order. In this regard, the brain, pituitary gland and gonads make up a dynamic axis in which the brain holds first place. Reproductive behaviors corresponding to each physiological event, such as copulatory and maternal behaviors, must be synchronously expressed for successful reproduction. These behaviors are considered to be the expression of higher brain function, but the expression is strictly regulated by various components of the axis. By focusing on neural activities, this book improves understanding of the physiological processes and behaviors involved in reproduction.
