Onomatopoeia and Relevance: Communication of Impressions via Sound by Ryoko Sasamoto
English | PDF,EPUB | 2019 | 273 Pages | ISBN : 3030263177 | 13.59 MB

This book aims to provide an account of both what and how onomatopoeia communicate by applying ideas from the relevance theoretic framework of utterance interpretation. It focuses on two main aspects of the topic: the contribution that onomatopoeia make to communication and the nature of multimodal communication. This is applied in three domains (food discourse, visual culture in Asia and translation) in the final sections of the book. It will be of interest to scholars working in the fields of pragmatics, semantics, cognitive linguistics, stylistics, philosophy of language, literature, translation, and Asian studies.

Therapy and the Neural Network Model by Theodore Wasserman
English | PDF,EPUB | 2019 | 210 Pages | ISBN : 3030269205 | 13.33 MB

This innovative work explores integrating emerging research into how the brain processes information in applied therapeutic interventions. Typically, clinicians select therapeutic interventions based on their own training, personal experience or preference. This book aims to provide a new model, based upon the neural networks, to both understand the development of mental health issues and their persistence, and how and why to apply therapeutic interventions to impact the systems which are maintaining them.

Alain Berthoz - La vicarianza. Il nostro cervello creatore di mondi
Italiano | 2015 | 219 pages | ISBN: 8875785155 | EPUB | 1 MB

Anche se non ci facciamo mai caso, il nostro cervello risolve problemi e prende decisioni di continuo. Per farlo, percepisce e agisce in molti modi a seconda del contesto, compensa mancanze, affronta situazioni nuove e cambia punto di vista. Questa straordinaria capacità creativa è la vicarianza, l'utilizzo cioè di molteplici e inattese strategie per raggiungere un obiettivo, rimpiazzare un senso con un altro (come quando ci si muove nel buio, o dopo un incidente) o delegare una funzione a una nostra estensione virtuale (nel mondo di internet e dei videogiochi). Il libro di Alain Berthoz dimostra che lo studio di questa strategia cognitiva, oltre a rappresentare un grande progresso scientifico, può avere importanti ripercussioni in pedagogia, nel problem solving aziendale, in psicologia, nelle scienze sociali e nella riabilitazione dalle malattie del sistema nervoso.
