Neuroeconomia, neuromarketing e processi decisionali nell uomo

L’obbiettivo di questo libro ? quello di presentare in maniera razionale un nuovo insieme di conoscenze circa il funzionamento cerebrale in merito alle scelte di tipo economico. In particolare si vuole fare colmare una lacuna nella editoria italiana relativa a questi temi, che spesso vengono comunicati in maniera imprecisa e scandalistica dai giornali e dai mass media.

Dream Science. Exploring the Forms of Consciousness

Dreaming is the cognitive kingdom uniquely skilled by means of people and critical to our creativity, the survival attribute that permits for the speedy switch and innovation that defines our species and offers the root for our paintings, philosophy, technological know-how, and humanity. but there's little empiric or medical proof aiding the widely permitted dream-based theories of neuroconsciousness.

Supraspinal signals are also not required because extensor dominance is almost always observed during fictive locomotion in the spinal cat with acute or chronic complete lesion which also does not depend on the choice of neuromodulators to induce stepping. Fictive locomotion was used in an attempt to differentiate the contribution of spinal networks and of modulatory systems in determining the regulation of cycle period by changes in phase duration. We used the same approach to extract the contribution of central networks during fictive scratch.

We will then have a rigorous base to construct realistic models of rhythm generator that will further our understanding of how phases and cycle duration are controlled and how different rhythms can be generated within the lumbar spinal cord. , & Grillner, S.
