Knowledge-Based Neurocomputing Neurocomputing methods are loosely based on a model of the brain as a network of simple interconnected processing elements corresponding to neurons. These methods derive their power from the collective processing of artificial neurons, the chief advantage being that such systems can learn and adapt to a changing environment. In knowledge-based... Intracranial Tumors: Diagnosis and Treatment
Brain tumors have a longstanding reputation for being intractable to therapy, and with evidence suggesting that the incidence of some brain tumors is increasing, this has become the most feared cancer. However, with improvements in imaging technologies, radiation therapy and chemotherapy , as well as a greater knowledge of the genetic causes...

The Neural Simulation Language: A System for Brain Modeling The Neural Simulation Language (NSL), developed by Alfredo Weitzenfeld, Michael Arbib, and Amanda Alexander, provides a simulation environment for modular brain modeling. NSL is an object-oriented language offering object-oriented protocols applicable to all levels of neural simulation. One of NSL's main strengths is that it allows for realistic... The Computer and the Brain (The Silliman Memorial Lectures Series) With a foreword by Paul M. Churchland and Patricia S. ChurchlandThis book represents the views of one of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century on the analogies between computing machines and the living human brain. John von Neumann concludes that the brain operates in part digitally, in part analogically, but uses a peculiar...

Tame Your Anxiety: Rewiring Your Brain for Happiness
Anxiety is natural. Calm is learned.
If you didn’t learn yesterday, you can learn today.
It’s not easy, of course. Once your natural alarm system is triggered, it’s hard to find the off switch. Indeed, you don’t have an off switch until you build one....
Engineering Design via Surrogate Modelling: A Practical Guide
Think of a well-known public personality whom you could easily identify from a photograph.
Consider now whether you would still recognize them if most of the photograph was
obscured, except for the corner of an eye, a small part of their chin and, perhaps, a half of
their mouth. This is a game often played on television quiz shows... Ruby Cookbook: Recipes for Object-Oriented Scripting
Why spend time on coding problems that others have already solved when you could be making real progress on your Ruby project? This updated cookbook provides more than 350 recipes for solving common problems, on topics ranging from basic data structures, classes, and objects, to web development, distributed programming, and...
