Flexible Printed Circuitry
Thomas H. Stearns
0070610320
November 1995
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
As the circuit densities of modern electronic systems continue to increase dramatically, so too has the popularity of flexible printed circuit boards. With their substrates of polyamides like Kapton or Mylar that enable bending and twisting, this new breed of circuitry affords designers the ability to work with much more surface area within much smaller spaces. Here is the most complete and cohesive guide to this burgeoning field yet published. A one-stop resource for engineers who need practical information on how to successfully design and assemble flexbile circuitry, it includes detailed discussion of the relationship between design variations and overall cost.


Fast Oscillations in Cortical Circuits
Roger D. Traub
0262201186
June 1999
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The study of cortical oscillations is of great interest to those working in many areas of neuroscience. A fast coherent EEG rhythm called gamma or "40 Hz" has been implicated in cognition, as it may play a role in binding together features of objects. This rhythm may also be important for consciousness, as a number of drugs that induce general anesthesia disrupt the synchronization of the rhythm at clinically relevant concentrations. There is also suggestive evidence implicating dysfunction of gamma rhythms in Alzheimer's disease, and perhaps in other neuropsychiatric disorders.

In Fast Oscillations in Cortical Circuits, the authors use a combination of electrophysiological and computer modeling techniques to analyze how large networks of neurons can produce both epileptic seizures and functionally...

Oct 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
A new perspective on brain function depends upon an understanding of the interaction and integration of excitation and inhibition. A recent surge in research activity focused on inhibitory interneurons now makes a more balanced view possible. Technological advances such as improved imaging methods, visualized patch-clamp recording, multiplex single-cell PCR, and gene-targeted deletion or knock-in mice are some of the novel tools featured in this book. This book will provide an integrated view of neuron function, operating in a balanced regime of excitation and inhibition. It is a timely contribution emphasizing how this balance is established, maintained, and modified from the molecular to system levels. The broad spectrum of topics from molecular to cellular and system/computational neuroscience will appeal to a wide...

The Circuitry of the Self: Astrology and the Developmental Model
Bruce Scofield
0962803170

Paperback
·
 
Book Description
"The Circuitry of the Self: Astrology and the Developmental Model" offers a new theory of how astrology works and how it can be scientifically validated. Astrology may be more than a kind of poetry of the imagination, it may be deeply embedded in our biological processes. Since Darwin, biologists have viewed life in terms of a developmental model. Life moves forward in stages - we are born in a form very different from what we become at adulthood. While Freud and Erikson applied the developmental model to their psychological theories few astrologers have approached astrology from that perspective. Many have adopted Jung's ideas on the archetypes and synchronicity to explain how astrology works. The astrological model described in this book offers an evolutionary alternative - planetary cycles establish imprints as we...

Frontal-Subcortical Circuits in Psychiatric and Neurological Disorders
David G. Lichter (Editor), Jeffrey L. Cummings (Editor)
1572306238
December 14, 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Review
"This elegant text addresses what is perhaps the most important conceptual development in late 20th-century neuropsychiatry. There is now common agreement that brain-behavior relationships are predictably tied to the organization of discrete yet interconnected neural circuits that link the frontal and limbic cortices with the basal ganglia. This volume explores the role of these 'loops' in the primary manifestations of specific lesion-based neurologic syndromes and then, by extension, in the expression of virtually every major class of neuropsychiatric disorder. Specific dysfunction of intricate neurochemical and synaptic subterritories within the frontal-subcortical circuits must account for conditions as categorically distinct as depression, schizophrenia, OCD, substance abuse, ADHD, mania, and Tourette syndrome. ...
