Exploring the Birth and Development of the Central Nervous System
Author: John E. Upledger
Pubpsher: North Atlantic Books
Witness the dramatic unfolding of the human form in all its potential. Join John E. Upledger, D.O.,O.M.M., as he takes you from the first union of sperm and egg through the development of the complex circuitry that makes up the human brain. You'll learn about birth, growth, function and dysfunction, and how all these aspects influence physical, mental, and emotional well-being. You'll discover problems that can alter brain and spinal cord development in each of the first eight weeks of pregnancy, and then monthly right through delivery. Perhaps most importantly, Dr. Upledger outlines a series of simple physical tests that can help determine the status of a baby's central nervous system and, to some extent, the peripheral nervous system. Then he shows you, step-by-step, how potential problems might be treated using CranioSacral Therapy and related therapeutic approaches. This breakthrough book empowers parents with knowledge to help them make practical decisions concerning the health of their children. And it crosses the boundaries of many disciplines, including embryology, obstetrics, pediatrics, neurology, and CranioSacral Therapy. A Brain Is Born is as valuable to expectant parents as it is to those who work with children every day.
The human brain weighs less than four pounds, is made up of more than 100 billion cells, and is the control center of every human being. It keeps humans alive, allows them to experience emotions, and enables them to think and learn. How does this small organ manage to do so much? What should humans do to protect it? Read these informational texts to find out.
This collection of essays, written by the poster boy of 1960s counterculture, describes the psychological journey Timothy Leary made in the years following his dismissal from Harvard, as his psychedelic research moved from the scientific to the religious arena. He discusses the nature of religious experience and eight crafts of God, including God as hedonic artist. Leary also examines the Tibetan, Buddhist, and Taoist experiences. In the final chapters, he explores man as god and LSD as sacrament.

Cognitive Development and Cognitive Neuroscience: The Learning Brain is a thoroughly revised edition of the bestselling Cognitive Development. The new edition of this full-colour textbook has been updated with the latest research in cognitive neuroscience, going beyond Piaget and traditional theories to demonstrate how emerging data from the brain sciences require a new theoretical framework for teaching cognitive development, based on learning. Building on the framework for teaching cognitive development presented in the first edition, Goswami shows how different cognitive domains such as language, causal reasoning and theory of mind may emerge from automatic neural perceptual processes. Cognitive Neuroscience and Cognitive Development integrates principles and data from cognitive science, neuroscience, computer modelling and studies of non-human animals into a model that transforms the study of cognitive development to produce both a key introductory text and a book which encourages the reader to move beyond the superficial and gain a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Cognitive Development and Cognitive Neuroscience is essential for students of developmental and cognitive psychology, education, language and the learning sciences. It will also be of interest to anyone training to work with children.
Designed as a guide for parents, teachers and principals, this book facilitates parents to restructure their lifestyle for the enhancement of their children’s academic achievement and self-esteem. A lucidly written text intertwined with theories and practicum, this book attempts to elucidate various concepts, theories, and methodologies for improved teacher performance. The text sets guidelines for administrators and principals in problem solving, process following, and decision making, which are quintessential for school operations.
Craniosacral therapy (CST) has become an important modality in treating trauma and promoting wellness. With its gentle approach to working with the spine, the skull and its cranial sutures, diaphragms, and fascia, CST has proven equally useful for physical therapists, massage therapists, naturopaths, chiropractors, and osteopaths. One reason for its success has been its underlying theory, as explained by CST pioneer John Upledger. According to Upledger, bodily tissues and cells have individual memories, and traumatic memories can be stored in these cells and tissues. Cell Talk, written for the layperson, explores this concept in depth and shows practitioners how to use it in healing their patients. The book offers simple strategies for treating disease and dysfunction by communicating with these cells to uncover the memories and then follow the healing path they suggest. Upledger blends the scientific aspects of cell biology with insights into the nature of inner consciousness, in the process uncovering the deep links between physiology, energy, health, and healing. Fascinating case studies—from people rescued from serious ailments to “talking” with AIDS cells—show how these ideas can be turned into useful medical treatment. Fascinating anecdotes from the author's personal and work life add an intimate, human touch to this helpful book.
The book is a monologue that tries to capture the likely forms of God. The basic idea is that the universe is God Himself, as a conscious physical entity whose conscience summarizes our consciences. We managed to sustain this universal consciousness. The galaxy is just a cell of the immense being and billions of stars are mitochondria that give energy to the Universe God. It's a book about perception which includes essays on various topics discussed and analyzed by humans for thousands of years .A more forceful and sincere expression of an author who lives on a speck of dust in the universe, fascinated by the exponential evolution of human consciousness. Virtual origin of the universe is reasoned. It's a book that tries compatibility between evolution and creation in that God Himself is created by evolution
Mr. Olsen wrote this book on human anatomy from an evolutionary perspective for college undergraduates with no previous college-level math or science. It contains an introduction to the nature of science and biological evolution in addition to a clear and comprehensive description of basic human anatomy. With over one hundred references, a detailed index, and more than 40 black-and-white illustrations and tables, this book is the perfect supplement to a standard anatomical atlas or textbook with color illustrations.
The Neuroscience of How, When, Why and Who We Love
Author: Judith Horstman,Scientific American
Pubpsher: John Wiley & Sons
Who do we love? Who loves us? And why? Is love really a mystery, or can neuroscience offer some answers to these age-old questions? In her third enthralling book about the brain, Judith Horstman takes us on a lively tour of our most important sex and love organ and the whole smorgasbord of our many kinds of love-from the bonding of parent and child to the passion of erotic love, the affectionate love of companionship, the role of animals in our lives, and the love of God. Drawing on the latest neuroscience, she explores why and how we are born to love-how we're hardwired to crave the companionship of others, and how very badly things can go without love. Among the findings: parental love makes our brain bigger, sex and orgasm make it healthier, social isolation makes it miserable-and although the craving for romantic love can be described as an addiction, friendship may actually be the most important loving relationship of your life. Based on recent studies and articles culled from the prestigious Scientific American and Scientific American Mind magazines, The Scientific American Book of Love, Sex, and the Brain offers a fascinating look at how the brain controls our loving relationships, most intimate moments, and our deep and basic need for connection.
