How the brain works - some viewpoints. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 18 years ago. I particularly like the article by . Jerison in this book, ie, Paleoneurology and the Evolution of Mind. Brain weight is plotted against body weight for living and archaic mammals and reptiles. Brain weight tends to vary with 2/3rd power of body weight, with vertical displacements for mammals and again for primates. Living reptiles show similar brain weights as archaic ones.

In a viral YouTube video from October 2011 a one-year-old girl sweeps her fingers across an iPad's touchscreen, shuffling groups of icons. In the following scenes she appears to pinch, swipe and prod the pages of paper magazines as though they too were screens. When nothing happens, she pushes against her leg, confirming that her finger works just fine-or so a title card would have us believe.

The Workings of the Brain: Development, Memory, and Perception (Readings from Scientific American). I of the Vortex: From Neurons to Self. Thus a book, such as The Squid Giant Synapse, that concisely highlights the contributions of one such model system is a very good idea. An even better idea is to have the book written by Rodolfo Llinás, a distinguished synaptic physiologist. Llinás has done a good job of capturing the excitement that has kept the field of synaptic physiology energized.

I particularly like the article by H.J. Jerison in this book, ie, Paleoneurology and the Evolution of Mind. Brain weight is plotted against body weight for living and archaic mammals and reptiles. Brain weight tends to vary with 2/3rd power of body weight, with vertical displacements for mammals and again for primates. Living reptiles show similar brain weights as archaic ones. There is a four-fold increase in brain size from archaic reptile to archaic mammal, and then mammalian encephalization holds steady for another 100 million years. In the last 50 million years there is another four-fold increase in brain size from archaic mammals to living mammals. The emergence of improved hearing and smell is postulated as the reason for an enlarged brain in early mammals over their reptile ancestors.

It is an excellent synthesis that integrate the wide field of Brain Science based in some deep insights only comparable to what Newton did in Principia Mathematica. It is a good perspective made by a Scientist who always has been made enphasis in a realist application of the Physical, Chemical and Engineering principles of Neuroscience.
