Series: Horizons in Neuroscience Research
BISAC: MED057000

This book provides readers with the latest developments in neuroscience research. Chapter One presents nonlinear features of EEG changes during auditory – verbal short-term memory task for words and nonwords. Chapter Two analyzes studies investigating the discriminative power of the Hopkins Verbal Learning Test to screen for dementia. Chapter Three reviews demential with lewy bodies. Chapter Four examines the relationship between age and verbal working memory (WM) performance in healthy adults, ages 18 to 90. Chapter Five studies the differences in pointing versus performing a pathway in 4-5 year old childrens’ topographical working memory. Chapter Six discusses the development of nicotine acetylcholine receptor imaging probes and their use for the functional analysis of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in neuropathic pain. Chapter Seven reviews the dorsal raphe nucleus neurons as targets for the presynaptic effects of nicotine. Chapter Eight focuses on the contextual modulation of motion velocity.
