              Besides being cruel and inhumane, torture does not work the way torturers assume it does. As Shane O Mara s account of the neuroscience of suffering reveals, extreme stress creates profound problems for memory, mood, and thinking, and sufferers predictably produce information tha...t is deeply unreliable, or even counterproductive and dangerous.

              The Opioid System as the Interface between the Brain's Cognitive and Motivational Systems: Volume 239 (Hardback)

              The Opioid System as the Brain's Interface Between Cognition and Motivation, Volume 239, focuses on the opioid system as the interface between the brain's cognitive and motivational systems. The opioid system is widely distributed through the brain, particularly in areas implicat...ed in cognition (hippocampus, prefrontal cortex, claustrum, thalamus) and motivation (hypothalamus, amygdala, pontine nuclei, periaqueductal gray and medulla). Opioid drugs have selectivity for certain subtypes, acting as full or partial agonists or antagonists at these receptors. Opioids are especially implicated in motivated behaviors (pain, reward, addiction), but their role in affective/mood disorders or cognition has received less attention, despite their therapeutic potential by virtue of their offering a rich family of receptor targets. This book studies the underpinning idea that brain's opioid system plays a key role in cognition and motivation and elucidates the supporting brain regions and their associated neurochemical and molecular mechanisms.

              Our brains have many biases and predilections that can distort behaviour and decision making. This book's starting point is that, as our behaviour arises from the structure and function of our brains, examination of brain based analyses of aspects of human behaviour relevant to b...usiness and management reveals lessons that can be used at work.
