From Brain Dynamics to the Mind: Spatiotemporal Neuroscience explores how the self and consciousness is related to neural events. Sections in the book cover existing models used to describe the mind/brain problem, recent research on brain mechanisms and processes and what they tell us about the self, consciousness and psychiatric disorders. The book presents a spatiotemporal approach to understanding the brain and the implications for artificial intelligence, novel therapies for psychiatric disorders, and for ethical, societal and philosophical issues. Pulling concepts from neuroscience, psychology and philosophy, the book presents a modern and complete look at what we know, what we can surmise, and what we may never know about the distinction between brain and mind.

Molecular Impacts of Nanoparticles on Plants and Algae covers molecular mechanisms of plants/algae related to cellular uptake, translocation of nanoparticles, and genome, transcriptome, proteome, and metabolome responses against it. The book introduces readers to state-of-the-art developments and trends of nanoparticles and plants/algae including interactions of nanoparticles with biological compounds in vitro. Nanoscience and nanotechnology have rapidly been developed in the last few decades, and they have a wide range of applications in industry, medicine, food, and agriculture. In agriculture, nanoparticles (NPs) have successfully been used for growth regulation, crop protection and improvement. This book presents the most recent findings on nanoparticle and plant/algae interaction by focusing on molecular response mechanisms at genome, transcriptome, proteome and metabolome levels. In addition, uptake and translocation mechanism of nanoparticles are assessed both in plant and algae. Throughout this book, the latest developments and discoveries are highlighted, along with open problems and future challenges in molecular mechanisms of plants/algae as a response of nanoparticles.

Public Health and Toxicology Issues in Drug Research: Toxicity and Toxicodynamics, Volume Two examines implications on public health and the impact of pharmaceuticals, chemical and food toxicants, dietary phytochemicals, and medical treatments. The book cover topics on pharmacokinetics and toxicokinetics, such as population pharmacokinetics/toxicokinetics, the design of toxicokinetic studies, and the use of toxicokinetic data in preclinical safety assessments. In addition, it investigates the health effect caused by the bioaccumulation of pharmaceutical and personal care products and the impact of drug-induced toxicity on different systems of the body.Final sections discuss the mechanistic pathways of food toxicants and illustrate the molecular mechanisms of the chemopreventive role of dietary phytochemicals. Ethical, legal, societal, and professional issues in toxicology round off coverage, making this a valuable resource for anyone interested in learning more about the health impact and public health issues related to the toxicity of pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements, personal care products, and medical treatments.

Emerging Contaminants: Sustainable Agriculture and the Environment provides a thorough, comprehensive, and interdisciplinary overview of the many categories of emerging pollutants, including pharmaceuticals, insecticides, personal care items, and industrial chemicals, that are currently impacting the environment. With insights into the exposure associated consequences on crops and edible plants, this book is designed to enable foundational understanding as the basis for future research, as well as providing practical application guidance in current environments.Water resource shortages, declining arable land, environmental contamination with different exiting or ECs, shortcomings in the procedures for protecting cultivated land, and inefficiencies in the management of land tenure rights continue to pose challenges for agricultural sustainable development around the world. This book focuses on the impacts of ECs on sustainable agricultural production and explores possible response approaches.Following an introduction to environmental contaminants, this book discusses their fate in soils, presents the most up-to-date analytical methods for detecting them in different environmental matrices, and addresses current regulatory restrictions. Finally, this book ends with a chapter dedicated to conclusions and future perspectives.Emerging Contaminants is an ideal resource for researchers and professionals from a variety of sciences including agricultural, plant, and environmental.

Treatise on Estuarine and Coastal Science, Seven Volume Set is the most up-to-date reference work for system based coastal and estuarine ecosystem science and management. It addresses the big issues facing the estuaries and coastal zone; in particular how to best use multi- and inter-disciplinary science to ensure the sustainability of the environment. It focusses on the need to protect and maintain the natural functioning of the estuaries and coasts worldwide while delivering the ecosystem services from which society extract goods and benefits.Structured chapters, written by leaders in the field, include reference lists and additional reading, copious diagrams, case-studies, and especially provide synthesis diagrams and conceptual models of complex issues. The Treatise covers both the natural and social sciences, serving a wide audience which ranges from undergraduate students to established researchers and practitioners. The work avoids autecological studies but focusses on inter-linked physical-chemical-biological-ecosystem processes and associated socio-economic issues in the coastal zone. It examines estuaries and coasts, and their interactions and feedbacks with humanity, from the inland catchment/river basin to the ocean shelf.The new edition builds on and expands the previous version with significant updates and a whole new section on Climate Change and Coastal Ecosystems, covering the resistance and resilience of the estuaries, coasts and other transitional habitats to climate change, thereby determining changes and responses needed over the coming decades.
