The Electrical Fields of Consciousness: Brain Waves and Dreaming examines neuro-electrophysiology from its origins in the electrical fields of primitive organisms to its roles in the electrophysiologically defined states of human consciousness. This volume presents and cogently organizes the wide spectrum of information available as to how and why bioelectrical fields are used to define and function in supporting both life and consciousness. Integrating electrophysiology in a comprehensible manner into neuroanatomical, electromagnetic, and global platform theories of neuroconsciousness, this book brings together the wide spectrum of available data-based evidence regarding the physiology and functions of bioelectric fields and their relationship to consciousness.Chapters examine the origin and potential function of bioelectrical fields and EEG associations with conscious states, as well as the relationship between electrical fields and consciousness. Incorporating the basic science, clinical correlates, and functional potential of CNS bioelectrical fields, this book is a must-read for all working in the field of CNS electrophysiology or neuroconsciousness.

Neuroscience Without Representations

In Neuroscience Without Representations, Oscar Vilarroya addresses the notion of “representation” as used in expressions like “neural representation” or “mental representation”. This concept is fundamental in neuroscience, yet there remains no clear, universally accepted view on what it means for a nervous system to represent something, what constitutes a neural activity as a representation, and what is being re-presented.The book lays the foundation for a non-representational view of brain function. Building upon György Buzsáki’s critique of the theoretical framework underlying current cognitive neuroscience, Vilarroya argues that disciplines such as embodied and embedded cognition—collectively known as ‘4E cognition’—are driving a paradigm shift in our understanding of animal cognition.Rather than grounding cognition solely in representations, the author proposes an alternative: understanding cognition as enaction—the meaningful engagement of an organism to address situational requirements. The book supports this approach through detailed analyses of recent studies.

Globalization creates economic prosperity for citizens around the world. It changes people’s deep-rooted attitudes, values, and behavioral patterns. Editor Thomas Li-Ping Tang is the first to scientifically capture the meaning of money and coin the contemporary love of money construct. Ardent monetary aspirations involve affective, behavioral, and cognitive subconstructs. Monetary Wisdom: Monetary Aspirations Impact Decision-Making bridges the gaps between behavioral economics, business ethics, decision-making, and the psychology of money. It compiles research from world-renowned experts in 37 countries across 6 continents. This book presents an excellent collection of innovative and multicultural views. Monetary Wisdom investigates how individuals apply monetary aspirations as a lens, frame critical concerns at the proximal and omnibus contexts, and maximize expected utility and ultimate serenity at the individual, organizational, and global levels. The books’ practical implications help readers apply and enjoy these discoveries’ benefits.

Recent advances in pharmacology and brain stimulation have led to the development of novel treatments for psychiatric disorders. These new advances have led to the development of a new subspecialty, Interventional Psychiatry.Interventional Psychiatry: Road to Novel Therapeutics reviews all specialized treatments including device-based interventions such as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), and deep brain stimulation (DBS). This book discusses the procedure-based pharmacologic interventions including ketamine infusion therapy and psychedelic therapies. Internationally contributed, this book outlines the state of the field, as well as implications for training and the role of the interventional psychiatrist in treatment teams.
