Brain-Body-Mind in the Nebulous Cartesian System: A Holistic Approach by Oscillations is a research monograph, with didactical features, on the mechanisms of the mind, encompassing a wide spectrum of results and analyses. The book should appeal to scientists and graduate students in the fields of neuroscience, neurology, psychiatry, physiology, psychology, physics and philosophy. Its goals are the development of an empirical-analytical construct, denoted as "Reasonings to Approach the Mind", and the comprehension of 20 principles for understanding the mind.
This book amalgamates results from work on the brain, vegetative system, brains in the evolution of species, the maturing brain, dynamic memory, emotional processes, and cognitive impairment in neuro-psychiatric disorders (Alzheimer, Schizophrenia, Bipolar disorders). The findings are comparatively evaluated within the framework of brain oscillations and neurotransmitters. Further, a holistic approach links the brain to the cardiovascular system and overall myogenic coordination of the vegetative system. The results emphasize that EEG oscillations, ultraslow oscillations, and neurotransmitters are quasi-invariant building blocks in brain-body-mind function and also during the evolution of species: The temporal domain is where the importance of research on neural oscillators is indispensable.
The core, holistic concept that emerges is that the brain, spinal cord, overall myogenic system, brain-body-oscillations, and neurotransmitters form a functional syncytium. Accordingly, the concept of "Syncytium Brain-Body-Mind" replaces the concept of "Mind". P>
This book provides a new approach to the understanding of brain-body-mind-integration based on empirical data and concepts from physiology, psychology, physics, and philosophy
The book proposes a new framework to integrate these branches of sciences in a new multi-dimensional "Cartesian System"
Includes analyses from several disciplines, such as neurophysiology, psychophysiology, neuropsychiatry, vegetative physiology, Darwinian biology, physics and philosophy
