  • Neurobiology of 'Umwelt'by A. Berthoz; Yves Christen

    Springer 2008; US$ 209.00

    At the beginning of 20th century, German biologist Jakob von Uexkull created the concept of 'Umwelt' to denote the environment as experienced by a subject. This concept of environment differs from the idea of passive surroundings and is defined not just by physical surroundings, but is rather a 'subjective universe', a space weighted... more...

  • Retrotransposition, Diversity and the Brainby Fred H. Gage; Yves Christen

    Springer 2007; US$ 169.00

    This Fondation IPSEN Colloque M??decine et Recherche was devoted to the interface between the complexity of brain organization and function, the mechanisms for generating diversity and genetic mobility. The goal was to expand the current limits of research in neurobiology not only to the benefit of those interested in the cellular and molecular processes... more...

  • Two Faces of Evilby Thomas Curran; Yves Christen

    Springer 2010; US$ 259.00

    Homeostasis involves a delicate interplay between generative and degenerative processes to maintain a stable internal environment. In biological systems, equilibrium is established and controlled through a series of negative feedback mechanisms driven by a range of signal transduction processes. Failures in these complex communication pathways result... more...

  • Characterizing Consciousness: From Cognition to the Clinic?by Stanislas Dehaene; Yves Christen

    Springer 2011; US$ 259.00

    Fifteen of the foremost scientists in this field presented testable theoretical models of consciousness and discussed how our understanding of the role that consciousness plays in our cognitive processes is being refined with some surprising results. more...

  • Epigenetics, Brain and Behaviorby Paolo Sassone Corsi; Yves Christen

    Springer 2012; US$ 189.00

    Recent years have seen spectacular advances in the field of epigenetics. These have attracted the interest of researchers in many fields and evidence connecting epigenetic regulation to brain functions has been accumulating. Neurons daily convert a variety of external stimuli into rapid or long-lasting changes in gene expression. A variety of studies... more...

  • Protein Quality Control in Neurodegenerative Diseasesby Richard I. Morimoto; Yves Christen

    Springer 2012; US$ 189.00

    The health of the proteome depends upon protein quality control to regulate the proper synthesis, folding, translocation, and clearance of proteins. The cell is challenged constantly by environmental and physiological stress, aging, and the chronic expressions of disease associated misfolded proteins. Substantial evidence supports the hypothesis that... more...

  • Multiple Origins of Sex Differences in Brainby Donald W. Pfaff; Yves Christen

    Springer 2013; US$ 189.00

    In theoretical terms, sex differences in brains and behaviors of laboratory animals offer the possibility of fascinating scientific studies on a range of molecular phenomena such as genomic imprinting, DNA methylation, chromatin protein modification, non-coding DNA, potentially resulting in important neuroanatomical and neurochemical sex differences... more...

  • Proteopathic Seeds and Neurodegenerative Diseasesby Mathias Jucker; Yves Christen

    Springer 2013; US$ 189.00

    The misfolding and aggregation of specific proteins is an early and obligatory event in many of the age-related neurodegenerative diseases of humans. The initial cause of this pathogenic cascade and the means whereby disease spreads through the nervous system, remain uncertain. A recent surge of research, first instigated by pathologic similarities... more...

  • Programmed Cells from Basic Neuroscience to Therapyby Fred H. Gage; Yves Christen

    Springer 2013; US$ 139.00

    The recent advances in Programming Somatic Cell (PSC) including induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPS) and Induced Neuronal phenotypes (iN), has changed our experimental landscape and opened new possibilities. The advances in PSC have provided an important tool for the study of human neuronal function as well as neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental... more...

  • New Frontiers in Social Neuroscienceby Jean Decety; Yves Christen

    Springer 2013; US$ 189.00

    Traditionally, neuroscience has considered the nervous system as an isolated entity and largely ignored influences of the social environments in which humans and many animal species live. However, there is mounting evidence that the social environment affects behavior across species, from microbes to humans. more...
