Become well versed in the spinal cord--not technically part of the brain, but critical to its ability to function properly.
Gr 6 Up-The first title covers normal processes, such as REM sleep, as well as developmental disorders and other abnormalities, such as snoring, sleepwalking, and night terrors. Different perspectives about the meaning of dreams are also included, ranging from the theories of Freud and Jung to current research. Color photos, numerous sidebars, and a variety of quotations from history and literature are included. Spinal Cord is one of the few sources on this important topic for this audience. Subjects such as the role of the central nervous system and the functioning of spinal reflexes are discussed, along with abnormalities like pain and paralysis. The chapters in both books follow a uniform format and are divided into many sections to aid comprehension. Keywords for effectively searching the Internet are also supplied. Solid additions for report writing and inquiry.-Caroline Geck, Kean University, Union, NJ Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
