The Crazy, Wonderful Things Kids Say :
Tales from the Singing Pediatrician

English | 2017 | ISBN: 0253032490 | 146 Pages | PDF | 2.54 MB

Hey, doctor, I want to tell you something!
For 54 years, kids have shared with pediatrician Arnold Tanis stories, questions, and bold pronouncements about their childhood worlds. In between treating them, the good doctor wrote many of them down. Three generations of patients offer memorable and downright funny observations and opinions about all sorts of things: shots, school, their brothers and sisters, growing up, and even Dr. Tanis himself and whether he can sing as well as he thinks he does. The parents also chime in, both to complain about all their kids put them through and to celebrate how well they eventually turn out.
A tireless, lifelong advocate of child safety, Dr. Tanis’s impact on his patients and their families spans decades. This book is a testament to his career and a memorable glimpse of the warm and sometimes crazy world of a singing pediatrician.
Arnold L. Tanis, MD, FAAP, is co-founder of Pediatric Associates, first established in Hollywood Florida in 1957. He entered the University of Chicago at the age of 14. One of the most prominent pediatricians in the state, he served as president of the Florida Pediatric Society from 1986 to 1989.

Timothy P. McNamara, “Semantic Priming: Perspectives from Memory and Word Recognition”

2005 | pages: 212 | ISBN: 1841690791 | PDF | 9,5 mb

Semantic priming has been a focus of research in the cognitive sciences for more than thirty years and is commonly used as a tool for investigating other aspects of perception and cognition, such as word recognition, language comprehension, and knowledge representations. Semantic Priming: Perspectives from Memory and Word Recognition examines empirical and theoretical advancements in the understanding of semantic priming, providing a succinct, in-depth review of this important phenomenon, framed in terms of models of memory and models of word recognition.
The first section examines models of semantic priming, including spreading activation models, the verification model, compound-cue models, distributed network models, and multistage activation models (e.g. interactive-activation model).
The second section examines issues and findings that have played an especially important role in testing models of priming and includes chapters on the following topics: methodological issues (e.g. counterbalancing of materials, choice of priming baselines); automatic vs. strategic priming; associative vs. “pure” semantic priming; mediated priming; long-term semantic priming; backward priming; unconscious priming; the prime-task effect; list context effects; effects of word frequency, stimulus quality, and stimulus repetition; and the cognitive neuroscience of semantic priming.
The book closes with a summary and a discussion of promising new research directions.
The volume will be of interest to a wide range of researchers and students in the cognitive sciences and neurosciences.

Crime and Criminality: A multidisciplinary approach

Sandie Taylor | 2015 | PDF | ISBN: 1138888621, 1138888613 | 822 pages | 10 MB

The question of ‘why’ and ‘how’ certain individuals are drawn towards behaving in a way that contravenes the ‘Law of the Land’ is not an easy one to address. Researchers from various different fields have nevertheless attempted to develop theoretical explanations for the existence of different types of crime and why some individuals commit such acts. Crime and Criminality draws on criminology, sociology, psychology and neuroscience to offer a balanced perspective of crime, the criminal and criminality. Coverage includes:
a comprehensive discussion of theoretical approaches to criminal behaviour, including biological, social and ‘rational choice’ approaches;
an analysis of legal and social definitions of crime and how these definitions influence the way specific behaviours are labelled as criminal;
an examination of different types of crime and criminals, from delinquents to ‘psychopaths’ and sex offenders;
an exploration of different ways in which crime is predicted, including risk assessment and offender profiling and an overview of investigative techniques.
Addressing a broad range of topics and offering a synthesis of competing theoretical explanations of criminality, this book is essential reading for students taking courses in criminology, criminal psychology, criminal behaviour, forensic psychology and psychological criminology.

Emergency psychiatry is one of the most stressful and challenging areas of practice for the psychiatric clinician. This timely and comprehensive revision of Clinical Manual of Emergency Psychiatry is designed for attending physicians, residents, fellows, and medical students who staff the front lines of the psychiatric emergency department. Written collaboratively by faculty, residents, and students from leading departments of psychiatry in the United States and Canada, this volume addresses those topics generally found to be of greatest importance and usefulness in the psychiatric emergency setting. Chapters are arranged by chief complaint (as opposed to psychiatric diagnosis) and have been thoroughly revised to incorporate the most recent data as well as new areas of relevance that have emerged since the last edition. Easy to use and organized to present key information in a rapidly accessible format, this new edition of Clinical Manual of Emergency Psychiatry will equip psychiatric trainees and educators alike with the guidance they need to address complex emergent clinical situations quickly and with confidence.
