Enriched and Impoverished Environments: Effects on Brain and Behaviour is the most recent review of the active area of neuronal plasticity. The question of how experience is recorded is fundamental to psychology; speculations and investigations concerning the role of the brain in this process have entered a particularly exciting phase as of the late 1980's. Manipulations of environmental complexity is one of the earliest methods utilized in the study of neural plasticity. This monograph organizes the evidence to date concerning the responsiveness of neural and behavioural systems to external manipulation of the environment. Further consideration is given to the issues of causation of the general effects of environment on brain and behaviour.
The study examines the deleterious impact of impoverished environments and the benefits of enriched environments for dogs in institutionalized settings as well as the benefits for working dogs and canine companions.

The study examines the deleterious impact of impoverished environments and the benefits of enriched environments for dogs in institutionalized settings as well as the benefits for working dogs and canine companions. Based on current human and non-human enrichment literature, research and practices, a canine sensory-enriched environment model illustrates the positive effects on dogs. Maintaining an enriched housing environment that provides a broad range of novel and complex sensory, sensory motor, and social experiences and provides opportunities for exploration, control and to express species-specific behaviors provides long-lasting positive physiological, psychological, and behavioral changes both in young and older dogs that have been living in a confined environment. The study concludes that a "free-roaming environment may be the most optimal environmental enrichment strategy and provides enriching and sensory stimulating elements that encourage dogs to interact with their environment in a natural way.

Lectures on General Psychology ~ Volume One circumnavigates the world of psychology in a comprehensive and critical manner. It offers students a leisurely cruise that sails with rational flags unfurled. The itinerary commences with a consideration of the diversity and methods of psychology and proceeds to put in at the ports of memory, learning, personality and neuroscience. Volume One offers students a fun excursion in which Prof. Ford explains, among many tantalizing topics— How psychology has never been a coherent science. How students can become educated consumers of research. How the memory principles of proactive and retroactive interference can enhance one’s love life. How the positive punishment of children can become part of the shopping experience at the local mall. How, by pretending to be incompetent, students can make friends and influence people. And how, based on brain hemisphere specialization, it’s better for guys to whisper sweet nothings into their girlfriends’ right ears than into their left ears. There have never been lectures on general psychology like the ones in Volume One. Students are invited on board a voyage of psychological discoveries. The trip is entertaining, exhilarating, and thoroughly educational.

Now Available in Paperback! In Einstein Never Used Flashcards highly credentialed child psychologists, Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, Ph.D., and Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, Ph.D., with Diane Eyer, Ph.D., offer a compelling indictment of the growing trend toward accelerated learning. It's a message that stressed-out parents are craving to hear: Letting tots learn through play is not only okay-it's better than drilling academics! Drawing on overwhelming scientific evidence from their own studies and the collective research results of child development experts, and addressing the key areas of development-math, reading, verbal communication, science, self-awareness, and social skills-the authors explain the process of learning from a child's point of view. They then offer parents 40 age-appropriate games for creative play. These simple, fun--yet powerful exercises work as well or better than expensive high-tech gadgets to teach a child what his ever-active, playful mind is craving to learn.

Cerebral Lateralization in Nonhuman Species explores brain asymmetries in animals and the extent to which such asymmetries relate, in an evolutionary and clinical sense, to the pervasive asymmetries that characterize the human brain. Topics covered include cerebral lateralization in birds, rats, and nonhuman primates; the inheritance of direction and degree of asymmetry in the brain; the morphology of rat forebrain; and variation in the pattern of behavioral and brain asymmetries due to sex differences. Comprised of 11 chapters, this book opens with a historical overview of research into the cerebral lateralization of structures and functions in nonhuman species. The discussion then turns to lateralization of vocal control in songbirds and lateralization of several behaviors in domestic chicks. The inheritance of direction and degree of asymmetry is also considered, along with the morphology of rat forebrains. The following chapters focus on asymmetries in anatomy and pathology in the rodent brain; the link between brain lateralization and behavioral functions; and how early experiences can induce laterality. The final chapter analyzes the implications of brain asymmetries for evolution, genetics, and clinical syndromes. This monograph will be a useful resource for students, neuroscientists, clinicians, and other practitioners in fields ranging from psychobiology and psychology to anatomical sciences, neurobiology, neurochemistry, and genetics.
Our first paper with “enriched and impoverished environments” in the title appeared in 1962 (Krech, Rosenzweig, and Bennett, 1962).
