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.

Tricky concepts are illustrated and explained with clarity and precision, as The Human Brain Book looks at how the brain sends messages to the rest of the body, how we think and feel, how we perform unconscious actions (for example, breathing), explores the nature of genius, asks why we behave the way we do, explains how we see and hear things, and how and why we dream. Physical and psychological disorders affecting the brain and nervous system are clearly illustrated and summarized in easy-to-understand terms.

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.

Bekenntnisse eines Hirnchirurgen Wie arbeitet ein Hirnchirurg? Wie fühlt es sich an, in das Organ zu schneiden, mit dem Menschen denken und träumen? Wie geht man damit um, wenn das Leben eines Patienten von der eigenen Heilkunst abhängt? Und wie, wenn man scheitert? Mehr noch als in anderen Bereichen der Medizin ist es in der Hirnchirurgie so gut wie unmöglich, nie einem Patienten zu schaden, denn Operationen am Innersten des Menschen sind immer mit unkalkulierbaren Risiken verbunden. Henry Marsh, einer der besten Neurochirurgen Großbritanniens, erzählt beeindruckend offen, selbstkritisch und humorvoll von den Ausnahmesituationen, die seinen Arbeitsalltag ausmachen. Seine Geschichten handeln vom Heilen und Helfen, vom Hoffen und Scheitern, von fatalen Fehlern und von der Schwierigkeit, die richtige Entscheidung zu treffen.

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?

Kollaps oder Evolution?

wie wir den Untergang unserer Welt verhindern können

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.
