Atoms of Mind The "Ghost in the Machine" Materializes (Gebundene Ausgabe)

Springer-Verlag GmbH, Springer Netherland, Mai 2011

300 S. - Sprache: Englisch - 54 schwarz-weiße Abbildungen - 248x167x24 mm Book

ISBN: 9400710968 EAN: 9789400710962

This book describes the author's view of how the mind "thinks" at various levels of operation. These levels include nonconscious mind (as in spinal/brainstem reflexes and neuroendocrine controls), subconscious mind, and conscious mind. In the attempt to explain conscious mind, there is considerable critique of arguments over whether or not free will is an illusion. Finally, the author summarizes current leading theories for consciousness (Bayesian probability, chaos, and quantum mechanics) and then presents his own theory based on patterns of nerve impulses in circuits that are interlaced coherently into larger networks.

The book attempts to explain thinking from a biological perspective. The book includes a great deal of previously ignored or discounted evidence and many new ideas for research are suggested. The book takes the approach beginning with operations of the simplest levels and eventually leading to an attempt to explain conscious mind.

Über den Autor

Dr. W. R. (Bill) Klemm, a Professor of Neuroscience at Texas A&M University, is a brain researcher who has written ten books on brain and behavior. His analyses are esteemed by journal editors who have called on him to serve on the Editorial Boards of eleven scholarly journals and to peer-review on the order of a thousand papers for over 55 research journals. His breadth of neuroscience research experience serves him well in addressing such complex issues of how brains think. His 425+ scholarly papers include works on over a dozen neuroscience areas, such as neuronal membrane biochemistry, brainstem mechanisms of arousal and movement inhibition, spike-train interval coding, alcohol and narcotic mechanisms, learning/memory, hormone action on the nervous system, pheromones and behavior, sleep physiology, anesthesiology, animal and human electroencephalography, and human cognition.
