MegaMinds: Hoe to Create and Invent in the Age of Google explains how people do genius level thinking and how this can be augmented by the new Web-based search and invent services.

He reviews artificial intelligence and highlights its limitations and then goes on to explore the possibilities with Google and other massive Web-based connected, collectivized intelligence. Noting that we are entering an era where the lone genius may no longer be equal to solving the problems such as ecology, Kilham proposes new problem solving approaches combing the best of the imaginative and creative individual and the computer. Kilham combines historical research, current laboratory studies using such modern techniques as fMRI, and his own experience as an inventor with several successful patents in complex technical areas. He offers suggestions along the way for everyone from emerging inventors and technical problem solvers to research teams seeking to utilize the best in cognitive science and computer technology.

We all have one. The human body. But do we really know all of its parts and how they work? The Handy Anatomy Answer Book is the key to unlocking this door to a wondrous world. Covering all the major body systems—integumentary (skin, hair, etc.), skeletal, muscular, nervous, sensory, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive, and, for good measure, adds chapters on growth and development and how science can help and augment the body—it follows the fascinating maze of organ systems and shows how much the body does routinely just to let you move, breathe, eat, and fight off disease. This handy reference helps make the language of anatomy—as well as physiology and pathology—more understandable and less intimidating. Fascinating trivia, plus serious facts, combine to answer over 1,200 questions about the human body, including What is Gray’s Anatomy? What does it mean to have 20/20 vision? Why is blood sticky? How does exercise affect the heart? What is “gluten intolerance”? Is urine always yellow in color? What are the seven warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease? What is a reflex? How much sleep does an individual need? Can humans use organs from other animals for transplants?

Unterhaltend und fundiert: Ein Pageturner über die Hirnforschung Die Hirnforschung macht rasante Fortschritte, aber nur selten treten wir einen Schritt zurück und fragen uns, was es heißt, ein Lebewesen und Mensch zu sein. Der renommierte Neurowissenschaftler David Eagleman nimmt uns mit auf die Reise durch das Gewirr aus Milliarden von Hirnzellen und Billionen von Synapsen – und zu uns selbst. Das sonderbare Rechengewebe in unserem Schädel ist der Apparat, mit dem wir uns in der Welt orientieren, Entscheidungen treffen und Vorstellungen entwickeln. Seine unendlich vielen Zellen bringen unser Bewusstsein und unsere Träume hervor. In diesem Buch baut Bestsellerautor David Eagleman eine Brücke zwischen der Hirnforschung und uns, den Besitzern eines Gehirns. Er hilft uns, uns selbst zu verstehen. Denn ein besseres Verständnis unseres inneren Kosmos wirft auch ein neues Licht auf unsere persönlichen Beziehungen und unser gesellschaftliches Zusammenleben: wie wir unser Leben lenken, warum wir lieben, was wir für wahr halten, wie wir unsere Kinder erziehen, wie wir unsere Gesellschaftspolitik verbessern und wie wir den menschlichen Körper auf die kommenden Jahrhunderte vorbereiten können.

Addressing all aspects of brain death and thoroughly detailing how a potential organ donor should be maintained to ensure maximum use of the organs and cells, The Brain-Dead Organ Donor: Pathophysiology and Management is a landmark addition to the literature. This first-of-its-kind, multidisciplinary volume will be of interest to a large section of the medical community. The first section of the book reviews the historical, medical, legal, and ethical aspects of brain death. That is followed by two chapters on the pathophysiology of brain death as investigated in small and large animal models. This includes a review of the many hormonal changes, including the neuroendocrine- adrenergic ‘storm’, that takes place during and following the induction of brain death, and how they impact metabolism. The next section of the book reviews various effects of brain death, namely its impact on thyroid function, the inflammatory response that develops, and those relating to innate immunity. The chapters relating to assessment and management of potential organ donors will be of interest to a very large group of transplant surgeons and physicians as well as critical care and neurocritical care physicians and nurses. Neurologists, endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, and pathologists will also be interested, especially in the more basic science sections on various aspects of brain-death and hormonal therapy. Organ procurement organizations and transplant coordinators worldwide will also be interested in this title. Other chapters will be of interest to medical historians, medico-legal experts, and ethicists.

Kollaps oder Evolution?

wie wir den Untergang unserer Welt verhindern können

Author: Rebecca D. Costa

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

ISBN: 3527506411

Category: Civilization

Page: 341

View: 8354

Wieso scheint es, als könnten die Probleme, die unsere Gesellschaft heutzutage bewegen - die globale Wirtschaftskrise, Wassermangel, Klimakatastrophen, Hunger und Armut - nicht gelöst werden? Was, wenn unsere Gehirne einfach nicht dafür gemacht sind, solche komplexen Sachverhalte zu verstehen und die daraus entstehenden Probleme zu lösen? Was, wenn Zivilisationen wie die Maya und Römer letztlich untergegangen sind, weil auch sie an den Rand ihrer kognitiven Leistungsfähigkeit gestoßen sind - und wenn dem so ist, wie können wir mit den Beschränkungen unserer eigenen Fähigkeiten so umgehen, dass wir einen Zusammenbruch unserer Zivilisation verhindern können? Rebecca Costa stellt sich allen wichtigen gesellschaftlich, politisch und wirtschaftlich brandaktuellen Fragen aus evolutionärer Sicht und mithilfe wissenschaftlicher Erkenntnisse der Neurobiologie. Sie stellt die These auf, dass die Komplexität der gegenwärtigen Probleme die Aufnahmefähigkeit des durchschnittlichen menschlichen Gehirns bereits überstiegen hat. Der Versuch, die Schwierigkeiten immer erst, wenn es bereits zu spät ist, in den Griff zu bekommen, geht verstärkt zu Ungunsten der Nachhaltigkeit und damit schließlich auf unser aller Kosten. Deshalb sollten wir uns endlich intensiv mit den Begrenzungen unseres Denkens auseinandersetzen. Zur Untermauerung dieser These hat Rebecca Costa nicht nur bereits untergegangene Zivilisationen untersucht, sondern in der Tradition des Evolutionsexperten und Begründers der Memetik, Richard Dawkins, die fünf vorherrschenden kognitiven Hindernisse (die sogenannten Supermeme) betrachtet, die wir überwinden müssen, um unsere geistigen Grenzen zu besiegen. Im Einzelnen sind es eingefahrene Denkprozesse, irrationaler Widerstand, persönliche Schuldzuweisungen, falsche Interpretation von Korrelationen, Silodenken und die Ausweitung eines extremen Ökonomiegedankens auf alle Lebensbereiche. Zur Überwindung dieser Hindernisse sowie der gesellschaftlichen Probleme kann jeder Einzelne beitragen. Der erste und entscheidende Schritt im eigens dafür entwickelten "Awareness-and-Action-Ansatz" ist die Reflexion der angesprochenen Einschränkungen, um darauf aufbauend eine Verbesserung unserer "Brain-Fitness" zu erreichen und durch den gezielten Einsatz von Einsicht und Intuition einen Paradigmenwechsel in der Gesellschaft herbeizuführen.
