Introductory Readings in Neuroscience

As part of our expansion into the Life Sciences, Cambridge Scholars Publishing has begun an already expanding collection of books in the field of Neuroscience. Concerned with the brain and nervous system in both humans and animals, Neuroscience is a relatively new branch of scientific and philosophical enquiry, emerging in the mid-twentieth century several centuries after its intellectual godparent biology did in the 1700s. It is now a vibrant and eclectic field of study, focusing primarily on the organ that regulates our thoughts, sleep, and dreams – our brains.

As part of our expansion, Cambridge Scholars have a number of titles forthcoming on different aspects of neurochemistry, experimental psychology, mathematical modelling, and the emergent properties of neurons and neural circuits. However, we are delighted to share an exclusive 20% discount on three recently published introductory texts in Neuroscience, books which provide a flavour of what is to be released in the coming months.

An Integrated Approach to Neuroscience provides detailed information about the salient topics typically covered in a traditional introductory neuroscience course, offering a basic overview of brain anatomy and physiology, from molecules to the mind, in a concise, readable format, without a substantial amount of peripheral information. This allows the reader to focus on the primary concepts without getting lost in ancillary information that may not be relevant to their future careers. This text will also serve as a useful reference for anyone wanting to refresh their memory on the subject, and will be an essential tool for lecturers and educators looking for a new text on which to base their teaching.

Contemporary teaching and learning methods based on cognitive neuroscience deal with such questions as “How do we think?” or “How does the human memory work?”. Innovative approaches in this field tackle the subject of human mentality by connecting discoveries from a range of disciplines that shed light on cognitive occurrences and the learning process. Especially over the last decade, one of the key trends in this field has focused on the connection between humans and machines. Contemporary technologies based on AI will undoubtedly play a critical role in shaping the society of the future. Thus, the primary purpose of Problem-Based Learning and Proprioception is to shed light on issues related to teaching and learning based on contemporary trends and approaches from the field of information and communication technologies and artificial intelligence.

Since its inception in Canada in 1998 as a method for teaching French as a second language in a school setting, the Neurolinguistic Approach to second-language acquisition (NLA) has expanded to several countries and is now also applied to teaching adults. By ensuring the independent development of effective communication and implicit competence in the second language, the NLA allows learners to genuinely express themselves in their new language. In this volume, co-developer of the approach Claude Germain outlines the history of the NLA’s development and provides insights into its principles, its teaching and acquisition strategies applied in the classroom, and the results it has achieved. This is an essential book for all second-language teachers, as well as researchers interested in the transmission of second languages.
