Millions of Americans have difficulty understanding spoken language. They're not deaf, autistic, or slow. They have APD. APD has been called the auditory equivalent of dyslexia, and its debilitatiting effects cross all ages, genders, and races. APD can cause children to fail in school and adults to suffer socially and in their careers, but until now, there has been little information available. Written by Dr. Teri James Bellis, one of the world's foremost authorities on APD, this is the first book on the subject that is completely accessible to the public. Through helpful checklists and case studies, you'll finally discover the answers you need, as well as proven strategies for living with APD. Comprehensive and powerfully prescriptive, this book contains vital information for anyone who suffers from this serious disorder. "When the Brain Can't Hear" gives you all the latest information: What is APD? how APD affects children APD in adults diagnosis and testing treatment options living successfully with APD memory enhancement and other coping techniques

Neural Control of Development: The Epigenetic Theory of Heredity

Neural Control of Development: The Epigenetic Theory of Heredity Lowest new price: $7.95
Lowest used price: $11.93
List price: $24.90
Author: Nelson R. Cabej

The book presents a novel theory on the epigenetic system of heredity supported by extensive experimental and observational evidence.

A control system, with the central nervous system as its controller, is responsible for maintaining the inexorably eroding structure of metazoans, including us humans. During individual development, that same system performs functions of an epigenetic system of heredity, providing trillions of bits of information necessary for erecting metazoan structure.

The main topics discussed in the book are:
- Hereditary systems as control systems
- The integrated control system and the control of gene expression
- Manipulative expression of genes in the central nervous system
- The epigenetic control of reproduction
- The epigenetic system of heredity
- The epigenetics of evolutionary change

Reviews of the Second Edition
"In this book, Andy Baxevanis and Francis Ouellette . . . have undertaken the difficult task of organizing the knowledge in this field in a logical progression and presenting it in a digestible form. And they have done an excellent job. This fine text will make a major impact on biological research and, in turn, on progress in biomedicine. We are all in their debt."
--Eric Lander, from the Foreword to the Second Edition

Oxford Desk Reference Clinical Genetics (Oxford Desk Reference Series) Lowest new price: $132.76
Lowest used price: $81.48
List price: $120.00
Author: Jane A. Hurst

This important new book provides a useful, easy-to-use guide to the clinical consultation in genetics. It covers the process of diagnosis, investigation, management, and counselling for patients. The authors have used their experience to devise a practical clinical approach to many common genetic referrals, both out-patient and ward-based. The most common Mendelian disorders, chromosomal disorders, congenital anomalies and syndromes are covered. In addition there are chapters on familial cancer and pregnancy-related topics such as fetal anomalies, teratogens, prenatal and pre-implantation diagnosis. The book also provides information on the less common situations, where management is particularly complex, or important genetic concepts are illustrated.
Most of the topics fit onto a double-page spread ensuring that the book is an accessible, quick reference for the clinic or hospital consultation. Where available, diagnostic criteria for specific conditions are included as well as contact details for support groups. The book is well-illustrated and has an up-to-date bibliography and glossaries of terms used in genetics and dysmorphology. This accessible book is designed for use by consultants and trainees in clinical genetics, genetic counsellors and paediatricians, particularly those working in paediatric neurology, neonatology or child development.

Genetic Algorithms + Data Structures = Evolution Programs

Genetic Algorithms + Data Structures = Evolution Programs Lowest new price: $31.75
Lowest used price: $5.99
List price: $109.00
Author: Zbigniew Michalewicz
Brand: Springer

Genetic algorithms are founded upon the principle of evolution, i.e., survival of the fittest. Hence evolution programming techniques, based on genetic algorithms, are applicable to many hard optimization problems, such as optimization of functions with linear and nonlinear constraints, the traveling salesman problem, and problems of scheduling, partitioning, and control. The importance of these techniques is still growing, since evolution programs are parallel in nature, and parallelism is one of the most promising directions in computer science.
The book is self-contained and the only prerequisite is basic undergraduate mathematics. This third edition has been substantially revised and extended by three new chapters and by additional appendices containing working material to cover recent developments and a change in the perception of evolutionary computation.

Zbigniew Michalewicz's Genetic Algorithms + Data Structures = Evolution Programs has three sections. The first section is a straightforward introduction to genetic algorithms. In the second section, Michalewicz describes how to apply genetic algorithms to numerical optimization. Michalewicz, who is a pioneer in this field, discusses the rationale for using genetic algorithms for numerical optimization and describes several experiments that show how this new type of genetic algorithm performs. The author devotes the third section of the book to evolution programs.

ISCN 2009: An International System for Human Cytogenetic Nomenclature (2009): Recommendations of the International Standing Committee on Human Cytogenetic Nomenc Lowest new price: $19.99
Lowest used price: $6.28
List price: $43.00
Author: Lisa G. Shaffer
Brand: Brand: S. Karger Publishing

This publication combines and extends the now classic system of human cytogenetic nomenclature prepared by expert committees and published in collaboration with Cytogenetic and Genome Research (formerly: Cytogenetics and Cell Genetics) since 1963. Revised and finalized by the ISCN Committee and its advisors at a meeting in Vancouver, BC, in December 2004, it updates, corrects and incorporates all previous human cytogenetic nomenclature recommendations into one systematically organized publication. It thus supersedes the previous compilations in "ISCN 1985" and its supplement, "ISCN 1991", the Guidelines for Cancer Cytogenetics, and "ISCN 1995". What's new in "ISCN 2005"? The G- and R-banded karyotypes have been replaced by new ones reflecting higher band-level resolutions. New ideograms at the 300-band and 700-band level have been added. The in situ hybridization nomenclature has been modernized, simplified, and expanded. New examples reflecting unique situations are included. A basic nomenclature for recording array comparative genomic hybridization results is introduced. "ISCN 2005" also contains a detachable fold-out of the normal human karyotype, consisting of photographs of G-banded and R-banded chromosomes at the commonly examined 550-band resolution stage and their diagrammatic representations - a useful aid for human cytogeneticists, technicians, and students.
