Summary
"Counter Brain Activation Per E. Roland Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden Brain Activation offers a comprehensive and insightful analysis of the functional relationship between brain organization and human behavior. This timely resource presents classic and emerging experimental approaches for mapping brain activation in vivo, using biochemical markers and modern neuroimaging techniques. Relying on information obtained from PET studies and other tracer imaging methods, this volume concentrates on the relationship between structure and function in the human brain at the cellular, neuronal population, and complex system levels. This timely reference provides a detailed description of techniques for functional dissection of the living human brain, including: cognitive stimulation and anatomical localization, measurement of physiological and biochemical alterations, and the principles of cortical field and population-activation. Brain Activation provides a structure-by-structure analysis of human brain activity, with detailed functional characterizations of the frontal lobe, parietal lobe, occipital lobe, temporal lobe, limbic system, and subcortical structures-including the basal ganglia, thalamus, cerebellum, and brain stem. Its integrative approach clarifies the intricate relationship among behavior, mental activity, and physiological events that accompany brain activation. Brain Activation is compelling reading for neuroscientists and cognitive scientists, and for researchers interested in the expanding application of neuroimaging. Specialists in neurophysiology, neurochemistry, and anyone fascinated with the functional organization of the human brain will find this a valuable and essential text."--Publisher description (LoC)
