Cerebral Lateralization in Nonhuman Species (Behavioural by Glick,Stanley Glick

By Glick,Stanley Glick

Cerebral Lateralization in Nonhuman Species explores mind asymmetries in animals and the level to which such asymmetries relate, in an evolutionary and medical experience, to the pervasive asymmetries that symbolize the human mind. issues lined contain cerebral lateralization in birds, rats, and nonhuman primates; the inheritance of course and measure of asymmetry within the mind; the morphology of rat forebrain; and edition within the trend of behavioral and mind asymmetries because of intercourse adjustments.
Comprised of eleven chapters, this ebook opens with a ancient evaluate of study into the cerebral lateralization of constructions and features in nonhuman species. The dialogue then turns to lateralization of vocal keep an eye on in songbirds and lateralization of a number of behaviors in family chicks. The inheritance of path and measure of asymmetry can also be thought of, in addition to the morphology of rat forebrains. the subsequent chapters concentrate on asymmetries in anatomy and pathology within the rodent mind; the hyperlink among mind lateralization and behavioral capabilities; and the way early reports can result in laterality. the ultimate bankruptcy analyzes the consequences of mind asymmetries for evolution, genetics, and medical syndromes.
This monograph could be an invaluable source for college kids, neuroscientists, clinicians, and different practitioners in fields starting from psychobiology and psychology to anatomical sciences, neurobiology, neurochemistry, and genetics.
