Researchers and clinicians in psychology work across a vast array of sub-disciplines, including applied psychology, addictions, cognitive psychology, developmental and educational psychology, experimental physiological psychology, forensic psychology, neuropsychology, and behavioral and cognitive therapy. For these professionals, and students as well, cross-disciplinary study is a given. For more than 75 years, Elsevier has cultivated portfolios of psychology books, eBooks, and journals covering current and critical issues in all of these areas. This vital content provides a sound basis of understanding for all those involved in this multi-faceted field.
Brain simulators built with neuromorphic chips provide at least the following four advantages over software simulations.
Understanding how and why people are living longer than ever but their cognitive abilities still decline with age is one of the most pressing topics today.
For years, psychologists thought schizophrenia had a psychological origin. We now know it is an organic disease characterized by brain damage.
The brain processes written words in two ways. In patients with deep dyslexia their phonological processing route is completely dysfunctional.
Computational neuropsychological, connectionist models can simulate constraint satisfaction and thus help us to better understand how people make decisions.
Dr. Tryon discusses two personality simulations that provide common ground for all personality investigators and clinical psychologists.
What's the difference between computational neuropsychology and computational neuroscience? Find out from Dr. Warren Tryon.
Dr. Tryon suggests that simulations are the computational neuropsychology tools that will provide much of the missing mechanism information.
Identifying brain regions or neural networks associated with specific psychological phenomena does not explain how those neural networks get the job done.
Dr. Tryon discusses the similar circumplex structure that emotions and colors share.
