Higher brain weight and greater number of neurons. Hypothesis: Greater “reserve” of neurons and cognitive abilities that offset losses of AD. Thus, the theory of cognitive reserve “ability of an individual to tolerate progressive brain pathology without demonstrating clinical cognitive symptoms” (Stern, ) (Davenport, et al., ).

In This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession, Daniel Levitin sets out to answer it — an ambitious task he tackles through a range of lenses, from a digestible explanation of key technical constructs like scale, tone and.

Read the edition of Brain Facts as a PDF file. brain and human performance book Head Strong is a tour de force as it relates to our current understanding of what maximizes brain performance. Dave Asprey has masterfully utilized both the leading edge of neuroscience as well as his extensive personal experiences to create a powerfully user-friendly guide that will clearly fulfill its promise to protect, restore, and enhance brain.

The book is organized directly from the psychological perspective of human information processing. The chapters generally correspond to the flow of information as it is processed by a human being--from the senses, through the brain, to action--rather than from the perspective of system components or engineering design by: Neuroscience: the Science of the Brain.

Physiological data, functional concepts, and correlates to the neuroanatomy of the major model systems (rat and mouse) as well as brain. As people age, they change in a myriad of ways — both biological and psychological.

Some of these changes may be for the better, and others are not. This book primarily concerns the normally aging brain, the neuroanatomical and neurophysiological changes that occur with age, and the mechanisms that account for them. It is not primarily about the behavioral or cognitive concomitants of those.
