Neurological Foundations of Cognitive Neuroscience (Issues by Mark D'Esposito

By Mark D'Esposito

Despite dramatic advances in neuroimaging innovations, patient-based analyses of mind problems proceed to provide vital insights into the functioning of the traditional mind. Bridging the space among the paintings of neurologists learning scientific problems and neuroscientists learning the neural mechanisms underlying basic cognition, this e-book studies classical neurobehavioral syndromes from either neurological and cognitive clinical perspectives.The individuals are all practising neurologists who additionally behavior cognitive neuroscience examine. each one bankruptcy starts with a case learn, describing the patient's indicators and the cognitive methods concerned. The scientific descriptions are through historic history at the neurobehavioral syndromes and dialogue of the tools used to comprehend the underlying neural mechanisms. of their makes an attempt to reconcile conflicting facts derived from diverse methodologies, a number of the authors shed new mild at the cognitive mechanisms they speak about. The syndromes comprise forget, Balint's syndrome, amnesia, semantic dementia, topographical disorientation, obtained dyslexia, acalculia, transcortical motor aphasia, Wernicke's aphasia, apraxia, and lateral prefrontal syndrome.

Musicofilia by Oliver Sacks

By Oliver Sacks

Oliver Sacks examina l. a. relación con l. a. música de pacientes, gente corriente o músicos profesionales para arrojar una luz insólita sobre ese fenómeno. A través de anomalías como l. a. «amusia» –o incapacidad para sentir l. a. música–, el hipermusical síndrome de Williams –un extraño fenómeno de extrema sociabilidad–, las alucinaciones musicales o los angeles música como inspiradora de auténtico terror, Sacks elabora un lúcido análisis de cómo l. a. música es un issue clave para crear los angeles identidad humana, ya sea de una manera patógena o como un agente positivo a l. a. hora de tratar el Parkinson, los angeles demencia, el síndrome de Tourette, l. a. encefalitis o los ataques de lóbulo temporal. Sacks se revela de nuevo como un espléndido narrador, con el humor, l. a. erudición y los angeles vastísima cultura científica y humanista a que nos tiene acostumbrados.

The Politics of Latin Literature: Writing, Identity, and by Thomas N. Habinek

By Thomas N. Habinek

This article describes the connection among Latin literature and the politics of historical Rome. the writer argues that literature was once a cultural perform that emerged from and intervened within the political and social struggles on the middle of the Roman international. He considers works via such authors as Cato, Cicero, Horace, Ovid, and Seneca. He goals to illustrate that, from its beginnings within the past due 3rd century BC to its eclipse by way of Christian literature 600 years later, classical literature served the evolving pursuits of Roman and aristocratic energy.

Epigrams, Volume I: Spectacles, Books 1-5 (Loeb Classical by Martial

By Martial

Written to rejoice the eighty CE starting of the Roman Colosseum, Martial's first e-book of poems, "On the Spectacles," tells of the indicates within the new enviornment. the nice Latin epigrammist's twelve next books catch the spirit of Roman existence in brilliant aspect. Fortune hunters and busybodies, orators and attorneys, schoolmasters and acrobats, medical professionals and plagiarists, appealing slaves and beneficiant hosts populate his witty verses. We glimpse the following the theater, public video games, existence within the geographical region, banquets, lions within the amphitheater, the eruption of Vesuvius. Martial's epigrams are often obscene, occasionally affectionate and a laugh, and consistently pointed. Like his modern Statius, although, Martial shamelessly flatters his client Domitian, one among Rome's worst-reputed emperors. Shackleton Bailey's translation of Martial's usually tricky Latin gets rid of many misunderstandings in prior types. The textual content is especially that of his hugely praised Teubner version of 1990 ("greatly more suitable to its predecessors," R. G. M. Nisbet wrote in Classical Review). those volumes substitute the sooner Loeb version with translation through Walter C. A. Ker (1919).

By Ineke Sluiter, Ralph M. Rosen

The fourth in a sequence that explores cultural and moral values in Classical Antiquity, this quantity examines the unfavourable foils, the anti-values, opposed to which optimistic worth notions are conceptualized and calibrated in Classical Antiquity. Eighteen chapters handle this subject matter from various views - ancient, literary, criminal and philosophical. What makes an individual right into a prototypically 'bad' citizen? Or an abomination of a student? what's the courting among ugliness and price? How do icons of sexual perversion, monstruous emperors and detestable conduct functionality in philosophical and rhetorical prose? The publication illuminates the various rhetorical manifestations of the idea that of 'badness' in classical antiquity in a number of domain names.
