The term Interception refers to information that is sent by the nervous system from the body to the brain. Despite its importance in the control of visceral organ function, emotional-motivational processes, and in psychosomatic disorders, the topic has not received as much attention as central functions of the nervous system. This book provides the first review of the field and will be of interest to scientists in neurobiology, psychology, and brain imaging, to individuals in related clinical fields such as psychiatry, neurology, cardiology, gastroenterology, and clinical psychology, and to their students and trainees.

"With her provocative focus on the tactile dimensions of cinema, Jennifer Barker crucially contributes to a reinvigoration of film theoretical debates. This book is a must-read not only for those interested in the interface between cinema and the body, but for anyone who believes in cinema's endless capacity to surprise us."—Elena del Río, author of Deleuze and the Cinemas of Performance: Powers of Affection "The Tactile Eye makes an important contribution to the recent discourses of embodiment in cinema and cultural studies. Grounded in existential phenomenology, the book abounds with productive suggestions, and precise analytical tools, with which one might carry out a deeply tactile ("textural") analysis of cinema."—Laura U. Marks, author of Touch: Sensuous Theory and Multisensory Media

Experiencing disco, hip hop, house, techno, drum 'n' bass and garage, Discographies plots a course through the transatlantic dance scene of the last last twenty-five years. It discusses the problems posed by contemporary dance culture of both academic and cultural study and finds these origins in the history of opposition to music as a source of sensory pleasure. Discussing such issues as technology, club space. drugs, the musical body, gender, sexuality and pleasure, Discographies explores the ecstatic experiences at the heart of contemporary dance culture. It suggests why politicians and agencies as diverse as the independent music press and public broadcasting should be so hostile to this cultural phenomenon.

"THE THINKING BODY, originally published in 1937, is a classic in the study of human physiology, and the effect of psychological and mental processes on human movement. Todd was far ahead of her time in seeing the relationship between thought and movement. Since its republication in 1968, THE THINKING BODY has been recognized as a profound study of biomechanics, anatomy, kinesiology, and physiology, all brought to bear on a study of movement education. The purpose of the book is to re-educate us in our movements, to bring the power of mental and physiological processes to bear on all our physical movements. As Todd herself said, "It is as profoundly true that we are as much affected in our thinking by our bodily attitudes as our bodily attitudes are affected in the reflection of our mental and bodily states." THE THINKING BODY's mind/body approach to the study of movement has made it a favorite of dancers, students of motor development, and all those concerned with questions of human fitness."--Page 4 of cover.

5. 1. 1 Biological Rhythms and Clocks From an evolutionary perspective, the adaptation of an organism’s behavior to its environment has depended on one of life’s fundamental traits: biological rhythm generation. In virtually all light-sensitive organisms from cyanobacteria to humans, biological clocks adapt cyclic physiology to geophysical time with time-keeping properties in the circadian (24 h), ultradian (24 h) domains (Edmunds, 1988; Lloyd, 1998; Lloyd et al. , 2001; Lloyd and Murray, 2006; Lloyd, 2007; Pittendrigh, 1993; Sweeney and Hastings, 1960) By definition, all rhythms exhibit regular periodicities since they constitute a mechanism of timing. Timing exerted by oscillatory mechanisms are found throughout the biological world and their periods span a wide range from milliseconds, as in the action potential of n- rons and the myocytes, to the slow evolutionary changes that require thousands of generations. In this context, to understand the synchronization of a population of coupled oscillators is an important problem for the dynamics of physiology in living systems (Aon et al. , 2007a, b; Kuramoto, 1984; Strogatz, 2003; Winfree, 1967). Circadian rhythms, the most intensively studied, are devoted to measuring daily 24 h cycles. A variety of physiological processes in a wide range of eukaryotic organisms display circadian rhythmicity which is characterized by the following major properties (Anderson et al. , 1985; Edmunds, 1988): (i) stable, autonomous (self-sustaining) oscillations having a free-running period under constant envir- mental conditions of ca.

The theoretical essays and empirical studies in this book trace the selective function and historical origins of animal behavior. Recognizing that libraries cannot always have a complete set of journals, the editors have compiled important original studies which either represent milestones in the development of ethology or are representative papers about important issues. The book is intended as a supplement for courses in ethology, animal behavior, and comparative psychology at the advanced undergraduate or graduate levels. -- from back cover.

#1 New York Times bestseller “Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding and treating traumatic stress and the scope of its impact on society.” —Alexander McFarlane, Director of the Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies A pioneering researcher transforms our understanding of trauma and offers a bold new paradigm for healing in this New York Times bestseller Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world’s foremost experts on trauma, has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, he uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity. Based on Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal—and offers new hope for reclaiming lives.
