Note:This two-volume set focuses on the interface between physiologic mechanisms and diagnostic human engineering. Today numerous biomedical sensors are commonplace in clinical practice. The registered biosignals reflect mostly vitalphysiologic phenomena. In order to adequately apply biomedical sensors and reasonably interpret the corresponding biosignals, a proper understanding of the involved physiologic phenomena, their influence on the registered biosignals,and the technology behind the sensors is nec essary. The first volume is devoted to the interface between physiologic mechanisms and arising biosignals, whereas the second volumeis focussed on the interface between biosignals andbiomedical sensors. The physiologic mechanisms behind the biosignals ar e described from the basic cellular level up to their advanced mutual coordination level during sleep. The arising biosignals are discussed within the scope ofvital physiologic phenomena to foster their understanding and comprehensive analysis

Note:To prepare for the day when astronauts leave low-Earth orbit for long-duration exploration missions, space medicine experts must develop a thorough understanding of the effects of microgravity on the human body, as well as waysof mitigating them. To gain a complete understanding of the effects of space on the human body and to create tools and technologies required for successful exploration, space medicince will become an increasingly collaborativediscipline incorporating the skills of physicians, b iomedical scientists, engineers, and mission planners. Trailblazing Medicine examines the future of space medicine in relation to human space exploration describes what is necessaryto keep a crew alive in space, including the use of surgical robots, surfa ce-based telemedicine, and remote emergency care discusses bioethical problems such as euthanasia, sex, and precautionary surgery investigates the medicalchallenges faced by interplanetary astronauts details the process of human hibernation

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Professor Yoichi Ando, acoustic architectural designer of the Kirishima International Concert Hall in Japan, presents a comprehensive rational-scientific approach to designing performance spaces. His theory is based on systematicpsychoacoustical obse rvations of spatial hearing and listener preferences, whose neuronal correlates are observed in the neurophysiology of the human brain. A correlation-based model of neuronal signal processing in the centralauditory system is proposed in which temporal sen sations (pitch, timbre, loudness, duration) are represented by an internal autocorrelation representation, and spatial sensations (sound location, size, diffuseness related toenvelopment) are represented by an internal interaural crosscorrelation function . Together these two internal central auditory representations account for the basic auditory qualities that are relevant for listening to music and speechin indoor performance spaces. Observed psychological and neurophysiological commonalities between au ditory and visual sensations and preference patterns are presented and discussed. This book thus spans the disciplines of physics,acoustics, psychology, neurophysiology, and music production, thereby blending science, engineering, and art

Title:Downward Causation and the Neurobiology of Free Will [electronic resource]

George F. R Ellis
Timothy OConnor
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:How is free will possible in the light of the physical and chemical underpinnings of brain activity and recent neurobiological experiments? How can the emergence of complexity in hierarchical systems such as the brain, based atthe lower levels in phy sical interactions, lead to something like genuine free will? The nature of our understanding of free will in the light of present-day neuroscience is becoming increasingly important because of remarkablediscoveries on the topic being made by neuroscienti sts at the present time, on the one hand, and its crucial importance for the way we view ourselves as human beings, on the other. A key tool in understanding how free will may arise inthis context is the idea of downward causation in complex systems, happ ening coterminously with bottom up causation, to form an integral whole. Top-down causation is usually neglected, and is therefore emphasized in the other part ofthe books title. The concept is explored in depth, as are the ethical and legal implications of our understanding of free will. This book arises out of a workshop held in California in April of 2007, which was chaired by Dr.Christof Koch. It was unusual in terms of the breadth of people involved: they included physicists, neuroscientists, psychia trists, philosophers, and theologians. This enabled the meeting, and hence the resulting book, to attain arather broader perspective on the issue than is often attained at academic symposia. The book includes contributions by Sarah-Jayne Blakemore, George F. R. Ellis , Christopher D. Frith, Mark Hallett, David Hodgson, Owen D. Jones,Alicia Juarrero, J. A. Scott Kelso, Christof Koch, Hans Kng, Hakwan C. Lau, Dean Mobbs, Nancey Murphy, William Newsome, Timothy OConnor, Sean A.. Spence, and Evan Thompson

Note:This book assembles chapters from experts in the Biophysics of RNA to provide a broadly accessible snapshot of the current status of this rapidly expanding field. The 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to thediscoverers of RNA int erference, highlighting just one example of a large number of non-protein coding RNAs. Because non-protein coding RNAs outnumber protein coding genes in mammals and other higher eukaryotes, it is now thought thatthe complexity of organisms is correlated w ith the fraction of their genome that encodes non-protein coding RNAs. Essential biological processes as diverse as cell differentiation, suppression of infecting viruses and parasitictransposons, higher-level organization of eukaryotic chromosomes, and g ene expression itself are found to largely be directed by non-protein coding RNAs. The biophysical study of these RNAs employs X-ray crystallography, NMR, ensembleand single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy, optical tweezers, cryo-electron microscopy, a nd other quantitative tools. This emerging field has begun to unravel the molecular underpinnings of how RNAs fulfill their multitude of rolesin sustaining cellular life. The physical and chemical understanding of RNA biology that results from biophysical studies is critical to our ability to harness RNAs for use in biotechnology and human therapy, a prospect that hasrecently spawned a multi-billion dollar industry

This book looks in detail at a wide selection of mathematical models in physiology, showing how physiological problems can be formulated and studiedmathematically, and h ow such models give rise to interesting and challenging mathematical questions. With its coverage of many recent models it gives an overview of the field, while many older models are also discussed, to put themodern work in context. In this second edition the coverage of basic principles has been expanded to include such topics as stochastic differential equations, Markov models and Gibbs free energy, and the selection of models has alsobeen expanded to include some of the basic models of fluid transport, respiration/perfusion, blood diseases, molecular motors, smooth muscle, neuroendrocine cells, the baroreceptor loop, turboglomerular oscillations, blood clotting andthe retina. Owing to this extensive coverage, the second edition is published in two volu mes. This second volume deals with the physiology of systems and the first volume with the fundamental principles of cell physiology. The bookincludes detailed illustrations and numerous excercises with selected solutions.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:One of the most striking features of Coordination Dynamics is its interdisciplinary character. The problems we are trying to solve in this field range from behavioral phenomena of interlimb coordination and coordination betweenstimuli and movements ( perception-action tasks) through neural activation patterns that can be observed during these tasks to clinical applications and social behavior. It is not surprising that close collaboration among scientistsfrom different fields as psychology, kinesiolog y, neurology and even physics are imperative to deal with the enormous difficulties we are facing when we try to understand a system as complex as the human brain. The chapters in thisvolume are not simply write-ups of the lectures given by the experts at the meeting but are written in a way that they give sufficient introductory information to be comprehensible and useful for all interested scientists andstudents

Title:Cell Motility [electronic resource]
Author(s): Peter Lenz
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Cell motility is a fascinating example of cell behavior which is fundamentally important to a number of biological and pathological processes. It is based on a complex self-organized mechano-chemical machine consisting ofcytoskeletal filaments and mo lecular motors. In general, the cytoskeleton is responsible for the movement of the entire cell and for movements within the cell. The main challenge in the field of cell motility is to develop a completephysical description on how and why cells move. For this purpose new ways of modeling the properties of biological cells have to be found. This long term goal can only be achieved if new experimental techniques are developed to extractphysical information from these living systems and if theoretical model s are found which bridge the gap between molecular and mesoscopic length scales. Cell Motility gives an authoritative overview of the fundamental biological facts,theoretical models, and current experimental developments in this fascinating area

Note:This book is directly derived from a NATO-sponsored international meeting on problems of high altitude medicine and biology, which was held on the shores of lake of Issyk-Kul, in Kyrghyzstan, in June 5-6, 2006. It was a surprisefor several European a nd North and South-American scientists to discover the still on-going momentum high level altitude physiology research, which was extremely active but insufficiently acknowledged in this remote Central Asiancountry at the time of the USSR. Accordingly, th e setting was perfect for numerous positive scientific interactions, exchanges of ideas, and structuring of new international collaborations. Overall, the meeting was an ideal mix of cellbiology, integrative physiology and medical applications. Hypoxia is and remains a major public health issue in many populated mountainous areas all over the world. We are sure that this book will be become a long-lasting essentialreference

Note:The state of the art in Biopharmaceutics, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics Modeling is presented in this book. It shows how advanced physical and mathematical methods can expand classical models in order to coverheterogeneous drug-biological pr ocesses and therapeutic effects in the body. The book is divided into four parts the first deals with the fundamental principles of fractals, diffusion and nonlinear dynamics the second with drugdissolution, release, and absorption the third with empirica l, compartmental, and stochastic pharmacokinetic models, and the fourth mainly with nonclassical aspects of pharmacodynamics. The classical models that have relevance andapplication to these sciences are also considered throughout. Many examples are used to illustrate the intrinsic complexity of drug administration related phenomena in the human, justifying the use of advanced modeling methods. Thistimely and useful book will appeal to graduate students and researchers in pharmacology, pharmaceutical scie nces, bioengineering, and physiology
