by Olaf Sporns, Discovering The Human Connectome Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Discovering The Human Connectome books, Crucial to understanding how the brain works is connectivity, and the centerpiece ofbrain connectivity is the connectome, a comprehensive description of how neuronsand brain regions are connected. The human brain is a network of extraordinary complexity -- anetwork not by way of metaphor, but in a precise and mathematical sense: an intricate web ofbillions of neurons connected by trillions of synapses. How this network is connected is importantfor virtually all facets of the brain's integrative function. In this book, Olaf Sporns surveyscurrent efforts to chart these connections -- to map the human connectome. Sporns, a pioneer in thefield who was the first to define and use the term "connectome," argues that the nascent field ofconnectomics has already begun to influence the way many neuroscientists collect, analyze, and thinkabout their data. Moreover, the idea of mapping the connections of the human brain in their entiretyhas captured the imaginations of researchers across several disciplines including human cognition,brain and mental disorders, and complex systems and networks. Sporns describes the biological andconceptual foundations of the connectome; the many research challenges it faces; the manycutting-edge empirical strategies, from electron microscopy to magnetic resonance imaging, deployedto map brain connectivity; the relationship between structure and function; and the wide array ofnetwork computational approaches to connectomics. Discovering the HumanConnectome offers the first comprehensive overview of current empirical and computationalapproaches in this rapidly developing field.

by Ralf Haekel, Discovering The Human Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Discovering The Human books, ‘Discovering the Human’ investigates the emergence of the modern human sciences and their impact on literature, art and other media in the 18th and 19th centuries. Up until the 1830s, science and culture were part of a joint endeavour to discover and explore the secret of life. The question ‘What is life?’ unites science and the arts during the Ages of Enlightenment and Romanticism, and at the end of the Romantic period, a shift of focus from the human as an organic whole to the specialized disciplines signals the dawning of modernity. The emphasis of the edited collection is threefold: the first part sheds light on the human in art and science in the Age of Enlightenment, the second part is concerned with the transitions taking place at the turn of the 19th century. The chapters forming the third part investigate the impact of different media on the concept of the human in science, literature and film.
