Reproductive Rights and Technology (Library in a Book)

From the advent of the Pill to in vitro fertilization, from Roe v. Wade to the Freedom of Choice movement, the reproductive rights of women have always been a highly volatile, hotly debated subject. Reproductive Rights and Technology addresses this important and emotionally charged issue. As with the other titles in the Library in a Book series, it provides a historical overview, reference resource, and research guide that can be useful not only to students, teachers, and librarians but also to journalists, media people, and members of the public interested in the impact that this issue has on our society. This volume examines reproductive issues from a wide variety of perspectives and disciplines – including science, technology, history, economics, politics, social attitudes, religion, and philosophy. Readers will also discover the range of reproductive technologies currently available, how their development has been affected by people’s beliefs and values, and the circumstances under which these techniques are made available. This addition to the critically acclaimed Library in a Book series will be of great use to everyone concerned with the issues of reproduction, childbearing, and women’s rights.

Mutual Growth in the Psychotherapeutic Relationship

Mutual Growth in the Psychotherapeutic Relationship: Reciprocal Resilience is an essential, innovative guide for mental health professionals who listen repeatedly to stories of devastation and trauma.
Moving beyond traditions that consider the clinician as existing only for the patient and not as an individual, this breakthrough model explores the possibility of mutual resilience-building and personal benefit developing between therapists and their patients. The first section of the book situates Reciprocal Resilience in the context of evolving resilience studies. The second section provides lively, demonstrative clinical anecdotes from therapists themselves, organized into chapters focused on enhancing their positive strategies for coping and growth while functioning under duress.
This book presents a framework for teaching and supervising psychotherapists that can enrich clinician well-being, while recognizing the therapeutic relationship as the key for enabling patients’ emotional growth. It challenges mental health practitioners to share their own experiences, presenting a research model syntonic with how clinicians think and work daily in their professional practice. It offers a pioneering approach, finding inspiration in even the darkest moments for therapists and patients alike.

Optical Imaging of Neocortical Dynamics

The application of optical methods for investigating neocortical circuit dynamics has greatly expanded in recent years, providing novel insights into the fascinating world of brain function. Optical Imaging of Neocortical Dynamics presents a guide to these indispensible tools, which cover a broad range of spatiotemporal scales and a large variety of signaling aspects, ranging from voltage changes to metabolic states. This detailed volume specifically explores methods that are applied in experiments on living brains (in vivo) and that relate to functional properties on the spatial scale of cortical circuits. Beginning with an introductory section that focuses on physical fundamentals of optical imaging as well as molecular tools used for in vivo optical imaging and optogenetic control, the book continues with the most relevant methods and their applications to investigate changes in neuronal and glial activity states as well as optical imaging methods probing metabolic states. Written for the Neuromethods series, this volume contains the kind of detail and key implementation advice that ensures successful results in the lab.
Practical and easy to use, Optical Imaging of Neocortical Dynamics serves as an ideal guide for researchers who aim to apply these highly valuable tools to their own neuroscientific studies.

Inside the Human Body (Inquire & Investigate)

A fun and informative introduction to the bodily systems that keep us alive! Hands-on science experiments and STEM research projects help readers ages 12 to 15 discover an amazing world―their own bodies!

What is the most complex machine on earth? The human body!

In Inside the Human Body, readers ages 12 to 15 peel back the layers to take a look inside this amazing machine and learn the basic anatomy of the human body and its bones, muscles, blood vessels, nerves, and organs. We’ll also explore the body’s physiology and how its organs work together to allow us to function and survive.

Take a ride through the different organ systems, including the musculoskeletal system, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, nervous system, endocrine system, digestive system, immune system, and urinary system, and investigate each system’s role in operating our human body machine. In addition, we’ll explore some of the diseases that can affect the human body and what we can do to keep our bodies healthy and fit. Text-to-self and text-to-world connections make learning applicable and fundamental.

• Combining hands-on STEM activities in anatomy, physiology, biology, chemistry, physics, and nutrition, Inside the Human Body offers entertaining illustrations and fascinating sidebars to illuminate the topic and engage readers further. This book integrates a digital learning component by including links to primary sources, videos, and other relevant websites.
• Projects include building a model of the lungs to demonstrate how they function, creating a working model of the cardiovascular system, investigating how the immune system protects the body from common illnesses, using vinegar to demonstrate how the stomach breaks down food, and creating a multimedia presentation about a disorder of the endocrine system.
• Additional materials include a glossary and a list of current reference works, websites, and internet resources.

The Ethics of Killing: Problems at the Margins of Life

Spoiler: The Ethics of Killing does find some abortion to be acceptable. This is probably the basis of most mainstream(i.e. simple) criticism of this work. However, even for someone that disagrees with some of Jeff McMahan’s positions, the Ethics of Killing is well written, and helps the reader, both professionals as well as students, gain a deeper, physical and metaphysical conception of what is wrong with killing. The writing style uses many examples that appeal to intuition, both positively and negatively, and appeals to which are used by McMahan to make sensible arguments. This work, intended as the first part of a two part series on Killing, attempts to find exactly what is morally wrong with killing. One answer that is dealt with is what exactly is morally wrong with ending a life. McMahan attempts to resolve such fundamental questions by starting with a notable focus on identity. In identifying what is essentially ‘us’ as embodied minds, and not something simply biological, McMahan opens new considerations by which to explore the ethical issues in killing. Ultimately, McMahan succeeds in providing a well written examination, that, while can be questioned, must be taken seriously.

An Epidemic of Rumors: How Stories Shape Our Perception of Disease

In An Epidemic of Rumors, Jon D. Lee examines the human response to epidemics through the lens of the 2003 SARS epidemic. Societies usually respond to the eruption of disease by constructing stories, jokes, conspiracy theories, legends, and rumors, but these narratives are often more damaging than the diseases they reference. The information disseminated through them is often inaccurate, incorporating xenophobic explanations of the disease’s origins and questionable medical information about potential cures and treatment.
Folklore studies brings important and useful perspectives to understanding cultural responses to the outbreak of disease. Through this etiological study Lee shows the similarities between the narratives of the SARS outbreak and the narratives of other contemporary disease outbreaks like AIDS and the H1N1 virus. His analysis suggests that these disease narratives do not spring up with new outbreaks or diseases but are in continuous circulation and are recycled opportunistically. Lee also explores whether this predictability of vernacular disease narratives presents the opportunity to create counter-narratives released systematically from the government or medical science to stymie the negative effects of the fearful rumors that so often inflame humanity.
With potential for practical application to public health and health policy, An Epidemic of Rumors will be of interest to students and scholars of health, medicine, and folklore.
