Integrated Models of Cognitive Systems

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The field of cognitive modeling has progressed beyond modeling cognition in the context of simple laboratory tasks and begun to attack the problem of modeling it in more complex, realistic environments, such as those studied by researchers in the field of human factors. The problems that the cognitive modeling community is tackling focus on modeling certain problems of communication and control that arise when integrating with the external environment factors such as implicit and explicit knowledge, emotion, cognition, and the cognitive system. These problems must be solved in order to produce integrated cognitive models of moderately complex tasks. Architectures of cognition in these tasks focus on the control of a central system, which includes control of the central processor itself, initiation of functional processes, such as visual search and memory retrieval, and harvesting the results of these functional processes. Because the control of the central system is conceptually different from the internal control required by individual functional processes, a complete architecture of cognition must incorporate two types of theories of control: Type 1 theories of the structure, functionality, and operation of the controller, and type 2 theories of the internal control of functional processes, including how and what they communicate to the controller. This book presents the current state of the art for both types of theories, as well as contrasts among current approaches to human-performance models. It will be an important resource for professional and student researchers in cognitive science, cognitive-engineering, and human-factors. Contributors: Kevin A. Gluck, Jerry T. Ball, Michael A.

Anatomy
39,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This is not just another anatomy book. It is unique in design, purpose and scope. It defines the words of anatomy including their origin, by whom and from where. The use of these words by anatomists and their discoveries are given in the first part of the book. These are a very diverse group of individuals and they are described in detail in the second part of the book, the Gallery of Biographies, which includes tales of their lives and careers. One was a member of the House of Lords of Britain, another became a Roman Catholic Bishop. The first 'clinical trial' was conducted by another anatomist to demonstrate the use of the condom in the prevention of social diseases. The third section of the book is concerned with the nervous system including the definition and origin of named structures in the central and peripheral nervous systems. In addition, diseases of the nervous system are discussed completely and in detail. The effect is an enhancement of the learning process in neuroanatomy fraught with seemingly endless disconnected words. The sources of these words are included in the text and references. The content of the book was conceived by two emeritus professors, Drs. Ronald A. Bergman and Adel K. Afifi, with a combined 100 years experience teaching gross anatomy and neuroanatomy, with the intention of facilitating the understanding of the 'mysterious' terminology used in anatomy, biology and medicine and to be able to incorporate this understanding into their career choices. The authors believe that the book provides students with an easy entry to a vast amount of anatomical detail making the learning process as pleasant as possible. No one can remember the enormous number of anatomical terms and, as with all anatomy text books, the authors recommend that this 'vade mecum' not be read like a novel, but rather used as one does with an encyclopedia. The user of this book does not need to know Greek and Latin to quickly learn this 'new' language. Many word origins are rather simple in concept. One discovers that many terms came from 'common use' in their time, e.g., there are three bones in each finger, the are termed 'phalanges' because they reminded their discoverer of a 'line of battle', esp. Macedonian infantry formations or 'phalanxes'. References and all sources that provide the book content invite those especially interested to peruse these outstanding resources for additional details.

'Problem solving is one of the most basic and important ways of handling difficult situations. Teaching children simple and structured ways to find solutions to everyday problems will give them one of the best starts to an emotionally healthy life. The clear language and practical strategies in this book will be helpful for anyone working with children who are 'stuck,' whether they are depressed, anxious, or just going through a tough time.'--Ronald M. Rapee, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology and founding director, Center for Emotional Health, Macquarie University, Australia 'Problem solving is a powerful, tried-and-true strategy shown to help individuals of all ages resolve challenging social, emotional, and behavior dilemmas. Manassis teaches clinicians how and when to use this strategy in a clear, detailed, step-by-step approach. The book is rich with case examples and clinical wisdom. It equips clinicians with the foundation they need to teach children and parents how to successfully use problem solving and incorporate it into their daily lives.'--Golda S. Ginsburg, PhD, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine 'Manassis succeeds in providing a robust, accessibly written guide with a wealth of clinical scenarios. Punctuated with specific examples of therapeutic questions and statements, this book is a wonderful addition to the libraries of clinicians, supervisors, and graduate students.'--Robert D. Friedberg, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director, Center for the Study and Treatment of Anxious Youth, Palo Alto University  'Manassis gives step-by-step instructions for problem solving and discusses common challenges in implementation, with specific guidance for treating anxious, oppositional, and inattentive children. The book's many clinical examples incorporate the use of child-friendly language. Tables in each chapter help practitioners easily review and remember the main points for each problem-solving step; guidelines for using problem solving in group settings and with parents and families broaden the books utility. This is a highly useful guide for therapists and counselors working with children and adolescents.'--Jill Waterman, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Los Angeles 'Practical, readable, compassionate, and filled with rich and realistic examples from the authors extensive clinical experience, this book provides detailed guidance for effective problem solving with young people and families with a variety of challenges. A particular strength is the authors wise attention to  common pitfalls  in applying these strategies. This would be an excellent textbook in training programs for professionals working with children and families.'--E. Jane Garland, MD, FRCPC, Department of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia, Canada 'A 'must-have' resource for all mental health professionals and trainees working with children and adolescents. Manassis reviews the empirical evidence for using a problem-solving approach and thoroughly describes applications across a range of clinical issues. Most striking is the candid exploration of typical problem-solving challenges, including much-needed recommendations for systematic, creative solutions. Clinicians will appreciate Manassis's spot-on evaluation of the complexities inherent to the therapeutic process. This book demonstrates the value of helping children and families learn and practice problem-solving skills that, ultimately, can empower for a lifetime.'--Barbara A. Gueldner, PhD, pediatric psychologist, Steamboat Springs, Colorado

American Untouchables

The issue of race is often a scab Americans choose to ignore. However social science has a responsibility and an obligation to examine not simply the amenable subjects but also the controversial. This work, in a word, is controversial. Thomas Franks (2004) argued that cultural differences led white Kansans to abandon the Democratic Party for the Republican Party during the 1980s. He specifically argued that abortion was the unifying issue in this ideological migration. Simultaneously, future President Ronald Reagan opened his campaign for the presidency in Philadelphia, Mississippi, the sight of the massacre of four young civil rights activists over a decade earlier. Race has and is a factor in the American experience; Franks' premise is simply that the absence of the concentration of African Americans in the Kansas area negated the influence of the 'black threat hypothesis' on the observed ideological switch of white Kansans. This work argues that Franks' premise fails to incorporate the over arching ideological switch of white voter migration to the Republican party that was occurring during the same period, and that Reagan's speech in Philadelphia, Mississippi was an overt cue that he was rejecting the civil rights consensus for an historically established 'race-based social contract' that positioned people of color outside the traditional bounds of the social contract. The study is a sociopolitical analysis of the African American experience utilizing the 'racial contract' framework developed by Charles Mills. The 'racial contract' holds that the social contract explicitly dictates interactions and transaction costs between citizens and government. Mills supposition is that historically non-Western Europeans were excluded from the penalties for violations of the social contract, and a tacit race based contract dictated transaction costs and interactions between Europeans and non-Europeans. The work utilizes the framework to trace the sociopolitical environment from the first appearance of Africans in America to the present. It has the supposition that the initial sociopolitical status of Africans in America was as a result of the reformation of the Western feudal agrarian culture, with African captives attached to the land as the neo-serfs; but that the reformation of feudalism was only possible within the context that Africans were implicitly viewed as outside the bounds of the codified social contract. It traces American sociopolitical conflict over the expansion of the 'racial contract,' which was the basis of the American Civil War; and the establishment of an implicit sociopolitical order within the bounds of the racial contract at the end of the Civil War, with codified sanctions for violations of commensality and endogamy.
