  • Rethinking Neural Networksby Karl H. Pribram

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 180.00

    The result of the first Appalachian Conference on neurodynamics, this volume focuses on processing in biological neural networks. How do brain processes become organized during decision making?

  • Time of Our Livesby Tom Kirkwood

    Oxford University Press 2006; US$ 34.95

    This is true, for he does show theoretically why there is no need for us to age, i.e. that there is no "death gene" that determines, more or less precisely, our longevity. Just don't expect any miracle cures. From a layman's viewpoint, the evolutionary argument he constructs for the development of aging in species is well elucidated and highly convincing.... more...

  • Traditional Rating of Noise Versus Physiological Costs of Sound Exposures to the Hearingby H. Strasser

    IOS Press 2005; US$ 112.00

    In occupational safety and health acts, ordinances, regulations, directives, standards and guidelines, A-weighted sound exposures, varying in level and duration, are traditionally converted to an 8-hour-average sound level by applying the 3-dB exchange rate. Under the prerequisite that the energy equivalent rating level does not exceed 85 dB(A)/8 h,... more...

  • Advances in Electromagnetic Fields in Living Systemsby James C. Lin

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 229.00
