Download Der Geist der Tiere: Haben nicht-menschliche Tiere ein by Andrea Steiger PDF

By Andrea Steiger

Essay aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Biologie - Verhalten, be aware: 1.5, Universität Zürich (Mathematisch-naturwissenschaftliches Institut), Veranstaltung: Philosophie der Biologie, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Der französische Philosoph René Descartes (1596 – 1650) begründete die sogenannte
Zweisubstanzenlehre, welche postuliert, dass es zwei unabhängige, nicht voneinander
ableitbare Substanzen gibt. Dabei unterschied Descartes zwischen einer sogenannten res
cogitans, die „denkende Substanz“ (Geist, Seele, Bewusstsein), und der res extensa, dem
„ausgedehnten Körper“ (Leib, Materie). Die „denkende Substanz“ ist strikt vom
„ausgedehnten Körper“ zu trennen und „(…) kann als solche kein Attribut der Körperlichkeit
auf sich beziehen. Sie ist somit von allen materiellen Dingen getrennt, die im Körper als res
extensa auftreten. Die bloße Materie als res extensa ist somit auch streng getrennt von der
denkenden Substanz (Röd, 1999, S. 73).“
Nach Thomas (2006) schrieb Descartes den Menschen als einzige Kreaturen der Welt eine res
cogitans und damit Denkvermögen zu. Nach seiner Lehre bestehen Tiere nur aus Materie. Sie
können auch als Maschinen betrachtet werden. Die place von Descartes wurde in der
Tierphilosophie kritisiert. Nach Wild (2008) verfährt die Tierphilosophie assimilationistisch.
Dies bedeutet, dass bei den Gemeinsamkeiten zwischen Menschen und nicht-menschlichen
Tieren angesetzt wird. Bei der Frage nach dem Geist geht die assimilationistische Sichtweise
von einer Kontinuität zwischen Tieren und Menschen aus und versucht dabei graduelle
Abweichungen von Geist bei verschiedenen Lebewesen festzustellen. Descartes hingegen
verfährt differentialistisch und betont damit stärker die anthropologische Differenz1.
Um die Frage zu klären, ob Tiere über einen Geist oder ein Bewusstsein verfügen, muss in
erster Linie dargelegt werden, used to be unter Bewusstsein zu verstehen ist und welche Arten von
Bewusstsein in der Philosophie unterschieden werden.

Download Handbook of Neuro-Oncology Neuroimaging by Herbert B. Newton PDF

By Herbert B. Newton

Remarkable growth in neuro-oncology because of elevated usage of complex imaging in scientific perform maintains to speed up lately. Refinements in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) know-how, and the addition of more moderen anatomical, useful, and metabolic imaging tools, akin to MRS, fMRI, diffusion MRI, and DTI MRI have allowed mind tumor sufferers to be clinically determined a lot prior and to be extra rigorously in the course of remedy. With therapy techniques and the sphere of neuro-oncology neuroimaging altering quickly, this moment variation of the Handbook of Neuro-Oncology Neuroimaging is so correct to these within the box, supplying a single-source, entire, reference instruction manual of the main updated medical and technical information about the appliance of neuro-Imaging options to mind tumor and neuro-oncology sufferers. This new quantity may have updates on the entire fabric from the 1st variation, and also will function numerous new vital chapters masking various issues corresponding to complex imaging suggestions in radiation remedy, healing remedy fields, reaction overview in scientific trials, surgical making plans of neoplastic illness of the backbone, and extra. it's going to additionally function a source of heritage details to neuroimaging researchers and simple scientists with an curiosity in mind tumors and neuro-oncology.

  • Provides a historical past to translational learn and using mind imaging for mind tumors
  • Contains serious discussions at the power and barriers of neuroimaging as a translational instrument for the prognosis and therapy of mind tumor and neuro-oncology patients

Download Coronary flow reserve - measurement and application: Focus by Pawel Petkow-Dimitrow PDF

By Pawel Petkow-Dimitrow

Coronary movement reserve is a crucial useful parameter to appreciate the pathophysiology of coronary movement. Coronary move reserve dimension is used to evaluate epicardial coronary stenoses or to ascertain the integrity of microvascular stream. An appreciation of coronary body structure is an essential component of scientific decision-making for cardiologists treating sufferers with coronary artery affliction. The pioneering learn efforts of Dr Lance Gould, who explored the connection among the anatomic severity of a stenosis and its circulation resistance (59;60) , were transferred to medical perform (94; 194). within the absence of stenosis in epicardial coronary artery, the coronary circulation reserve could be lowered whilst coronary microvascular movement is compromised via arterial high blood pressure without or with left ventricular hypertrophy, diabetes mellitus, hypercholesterolemia, or different illnesses. a number of innovations were verified for measuring coronary circulate reserve. although, those concepts are both invasive (intracoronary Doppler movement wire), hugely dear and scarcely to be had (Positron Emission Tomography - puppy) or semi-invasive and inflicting sufferer ache (transesophageal Doppler echocardiography), therefore their scientific use is restricted. a result of medical value of coronary circulation reserve there's a want for an easy, noninvasive, repeatable and cheap instrument in a position to this useful evaluate. This monograph specializes in the review of coronary circulate reserve utilizing transthoracic Doppler echocardiography - the process pleasurable the above-mentioned standards. Transthoracic Doppler echocardiography has develop into a favored instrument evolving from a examine to diagnostic method utilized in daily practice.

This ground-breaking new ebook describes how more and more refined neuroscientific methods are revealing a lot in regards to the position of the mind in consuming disorders.  much more importantly, it discusses how underlying mind abnormalities and disorder may well give a contribution to the improvement and assist in the remedy of those critical problems.

  • Neuropsychological stories exhibit impairments in particular cognitive capabilities, specially government and visuo-spatial skills.
  • Neuroimaging experiences exhibit structural and practical abnormalities, together with cortical atrophy and neural circuit abnormalities, the latter showing to be enjoying a huge half within the improvement of anorexia nervosa.
  • Neurochemistry stories convey dysregulation inside neurotransmitter structures, with results upon the modulation of feeding, temper, anxiousness, neuroendocrine keep an eye on, metabolic cost, sympathetic tone and temperature.

The first bankruptcy, via an consuming issues clinician, explains the significance of a neuroscience viewpoint for clinicians. this can be through an summary of the typical consuming problems, then chapters on what we all know of them from stories of neuroimaging, neuropsychology and neurochemistry. The mysterious phenomenon of physique snapshot disturbance is then defined and defined from a neuroscience point of view. the subsequent chapters concentrate on neuroscience versions of consuming problems, the 1st delivering an outline and the second one a brand new and complete explanatory version of anorexia nervosa. the next chapters provide a scientific viewpoint, with consciousness at the implications of a neuroscience standpoint for sufferers and their households, the second one supplying information of scientific purposes of neuroscience realizing. the ultimate bankruptcy appears to the future.
