Recenzii

"This superbly edited volume captures the exciting progress in understanding the human amygdala that has occurred over the past decade, with the aid of new developments in brain imaging technology and genomics. The book represents one of the first successful attempts to integrate ideas and findings from basic neuroscience with evidence on social and emotional functioning. It will interest a wide audience of researchers and trainees." - Trevor W. Robbins, Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Cambridge, UK
"When discussing the role of the amygdala in the brain, some have said that, 'All roads lead to Rome.' This volume sheds new light on the important role that this small almond-shaped region plays in normal processes - such as fear, positive reinforcement, memory, and social interactions - and in mental disorders. The text is consistently informed by the latest findings from imaging, animal, and genetic work. Any student of the brain and behavior will definitely enjoy this authoritative yet accessible book." - Mark S. George, Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry, Radiology, and Neuroscience, Medical University of South Carolina, USA
"The field's leading authorities provide state-of-the-art coverage of amygdala function and dysfunction. This well-conceived volume is a tour de force that should be considered essential reading for any neuroscientist interested in behavior and any behavioral scientist interested in brain function. Chapters will be of interest to experts but are also accessible enough for use in advanced seminars and graduate courses." - John T. Cacioppo, Director, Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience, University of Chicago, USA

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Building on pioneering animal studies, and making use of new, noninvasive techniques for studying the human brain, research on the human amygdala has blossomed in recent years. This comprehensive volume brings together leading authorities to synthesize current knowledge on the amygdala and its role in psychological function and dysfunction. Initial chapters discuss how animal models have paved the way for work with human subjects. Next, the book examines the amygdala's involvement in emotional processing, learning, memory, and social interaction. The final section presents key advances in understanding specific clinical disorders: anxiety disorders, depression, schizophrenia, autism, and Alzheimer's disease. Illustrations include more than 25 color plates.

Notă biografică

Paul J. Whalen, PhD, is Assistant Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College, USA. The focus of Dr. Whalen's research is to better understand the neural substrates of biologically relevant learning in the human. To this end, his laboratory studies the human amygdala as a model system for such learning. Elizabeth A. Phelps, PhD, is Professor of Psychology at New York University, USA. Dr. Phelps's research examines the cognitive neuroscience of emotion, learning, and memory. Her primary focus has been to understand how human learning and memory are changed by emotion and to investigate the neural systems mediating their interactions.
