The Other Side of Normal: How Biology Is Providing the Clues to Unlock the Secrets of Normal and Abnormal Behavior

The Other Side of Normal: How Biology Is Providing the Clues to Unlock the Secrets of Normal and Abnormal Behavior Lowest new price: $23.98
Lowest used price: $5.24
List price: $27.99
Author: Jordan Smoller

In this enthralling work of popular science, respected Harvard psychiatrist Jordan Smoller addresses one of humankind’s most enduring and perplexing questions: What does it mean to be “normal?” In The Other Side of Normal, Smoller explores the biological component of normalcy, revealing the hidden side of our everyday behaviors—why we love what we love and fear what we fear. Other bestselling works of neurobiology and the mind have focused on mental illness and abnormal behaviors—like the Oliver Sacks classic, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat—but The Other Side of Normal is an eye-opening, thought-provoking, utterly fascinating and totally accessible exploration of the universals of human experience. It will change forever our understanding of who we are and what makes us that way.

Where Biology Meets Psychology: Philosophical Essays

Where Biology Meets Psychology: Philosophical Essays Lowest new price: $56.00
Lowest used price: $4.75
List price: $87.50

A great deal of interest and excitement surround the interface between the philosophy of biology and the philosophy of psychology, yet the area is neither well defined nor well represented in mainstream philosophical publications. This book is perhaps the first to open a dialogue between the two disciplines. Its aim is to broaden the traditional subject matter of the philosophy of biology while informing the philosophy of psychology of relevant biological constraints and insights.The book is organized around six themes: functions and teleology, evolutionary psychology, innateness, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, and parallels between philosophy of biology and philosophy of mind. Throughout, one finds overlapping areas of study, larger philosophical implications, and even larger conceptual ties. Woven through these connections are shared concerns about the status of semantics, scientific law, evolution and adaptation, and cognition in general.ContributorsAndré Ariew, Mark A. Bedau, David J.

Author: Hugh Wagner

Why is one person motivated to create a business empire whilst another is inspired to produce a beautiful work of art? Why do some people prefer a quiet life?
The Psychobiology of Human Motivation explores what directs our behaviour, from basic physiological needs like hunger and thirst to more complex aspects of social behaviour like altruism. Hugh Wagner explores the limits of biological explanations and shows how humans can influence `basic' physiological drives in order to adapt to a complex social environment.

"Biopsychology" is an introduction to the biological bases of behaviour for students with no previous background in the area. The text focuses on behaviour, acknowledging important recent advances in related neuroscientific fields. New to this edition is a chapter linking genetics, evolution and development, teaching students how to think about the biopsychology of behaviour. Another chapter offers coverage of emotions, stress and psychoneuroendocrinology. Other topics covered include: neural conduction and synaptic transmission; research on eating, drinking and anorexia nervosa; and expanded coverage of the neural mechanisms of sexual behaviour.

As scientific knowledge about the biological influences of mental disorders increases, diagnosis and treatment of these disorders are changing to reflect this new understanding. PSYCHOBIOLOGICAL FOUNDATIONS OF PSYCHIATRIC CARE presents the essential information for psychiatric nurses to understand the biological bases underlying human behavior and mental illness. The book is divided into two parts. Part I details neuroanatomy and neurophysiology with many full-color drawings, photographs, and brain scan images. Part II discusses the psychobiology of the major mental disorders together with the behavioral manifestations and clinical implications of each disorder. TOC:

Written by a distinguished team of four leaders in neuropathology, neurobiology and neuropsychiatry research and practice to ensure definitive, authoritative, and current information. Describes macroanatomy and microanatomy of the brain to provide a basis for further discussion of the biological aspects of specific mental disorders. Discusses brain imaging techniques, supported by numerous brain scan images, to provide a fundamental understanding of the techniques used to study psychobiological disorders. Addresses the clinical manifestations of the biological aspects of the major mental disorders to promote understanding of the biological bases for the disorders and develop appropriate biological interventions. Offers a consistent presentation of theoretical and clinical information on the major mental disorders to facilitate understanding of the material. Includes the ANA Psychopharmacology Guidelines for Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurses to provide a resource for understanding the relationship between psychobiology and psychopharmacological interventions. Provides a glossary of neuroanatomy and neurobiologic terms to define and explain the fundamental concepts related to psychobiology. Features over 100 full-color brain scans, photographs, and drawings to graphically illustrate brain anatomy and function. Presents a visually-stimulating full-color design throughout that makes the text more inviting and information more accessible.

Mood Disorders: Toward a New Psychobiology (Critical Issues in Psychiatry)

Mood Disorders: Toward a New Psychobiology (Critical Issues in Psychiatry) Lowest new price: $63.61
Lowest used price: $8.00
List price: $99.00
Author: Peter C. Whybrow

In this book we present a conceptually integrated approach to disorders of mood. These disorders are defined narrowly as the clinical syndromes of mania and melancholia. The latter is our particular focus, for the simple reason that it is more common and thus more is known about it. Our approach owes much to Adolf Meyer, who first used the term psychobiology. It was he who emphasized in a practical way the importance of the clinician consider­ ing the joint contribution of psychosocial and biological factors in the genesis of mental disorders. However, until the 1960s, our relative ignorance of basic mechanisms that link brain and behavior prevented the development of a genuine psychobiological perspective. Thus Meyer's work was concerned largely with teaching the importance of the personal biography and a consideration of social history in the development of mental disorder. We feel that sufficiently rigorous data have now emerged in psychia­ try to permit tentative but real psychobiological integration. Affective illness is proba­ bly the most promising area for an attempt at such a synthesis. It is our belief that the theory and clinical practice of psychiatry now can be woven into a coherent theme, integrating insights and evidence generated by the psychodynamic, biological, and behavioral methods; hence in part we review the emerging psychobiology of mood disorders with the hope that it can serve as a generic paradigm for other psychiatric syndromes.
