The picture you have in your mind of the nervous system probably includes the brain, the nervous tissue contained within the cranium, and the spinal cord, the extension of nervous tissue within the vertebral suggests it is made of two organs—and you may not even think of the spinal cord as an organ—but the nervous system is a very complex Author: OpenStaxCollege. Neuroscientists have discovered that reading a novel can improve brain function on a variety of levels. The recent study on the brain benefits of reading fiction was conducted at .
set up to study basic mechanisms of brain function, rather than disease-specific investigations. The camaraderie and collegiality of the labora tories was palpable, according to those early researchers. The discoveries and advances that resulted were Size: 4MB. The brainstem also has integrative functions, including cardiovascular system control, respiratory control, pain sensitivity control, alertness, awareness, and consciousness. Human Brain with Cranial Nerves: Cranial nerves are nerves that emerge directly from the brain, in contrast to spinal nerves, which emerge from segments of the spinal cord.
3: The brain functions as an Integrated Whole Ayers believed that higher-order integrative functions evolved from, and were dependent on, the integrity of “lower-order” structures and on sensory-motor experience. She viewed higher-order (cortical) centers of the brain as responsible for abstraction, perception, reasoning, language, and File Size: KB. brain and behavior were established. These were elements of the new science of cybernetics, which became public in when the American professor Norbert Wiener published his book with the same title. The researchers’ mind control project is most often classified as behavior or cognitive manipulation. From the veryFile Size: KB.

The term “integrative” as applied to the CNS denotes those functions that are not directly involved in the processing of sensory inputs or in the activity of the motor and Autonomic centers. The main mechanisms in this category are those underlying the sleeping/waking cycle, consciousness, language, thinking (understanding, reason), memory (including learning), motivation Cited by: 3.
Part of the Springer Study Edition book series (SSE) The integrative functions of the central nervous system include quite fundamental processes; these are operations that cannot be classified directly as processing of sensory inputs or motor and autonomic by: 3.

"Human Brain Function reflects the contributions of a network of laboratories, many in Europe, centered on the Functional Imaging Laboratory of the University College gives the volume a great deal of coherence. for an authoritative, state-of-the-art summary of cognitive neuroscience, I do not know a better book.
I highly recommend Cited by: In terms of brain-based models, network-oriented theories of cognitive control provide a more integrative view of control functions by suggesting the existence of distinct networks responsible for the execution of control functions (Corbetta & Shulman, ; Dosenbach, Fair, Cohen, Schlaggar, & Petersen, ).Cited by: Integrative Functions of Brain.

Functional integration is the study of how brain regions work together to process information and effect responses. Though functional integration frequently relies on anatomic knowledge of the connections between brain areas, the emphasis is on how large clusters of neurons – numbering in the thousands or millions – fire together under various stimuli.

It regulates organ function, higher thought, and movement of the body. The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord. Generation & propagation of an action potential.
Written by an international team of medical experts on brain science, it covers all aspects of brain function, from development and disorders, to the nature of consciousness, through to the aging brain and brain diseases. Topics include brain chemistry, memory, the teenage brain, illusions and hallucinations, music and the brain, sleep and /5(48).
The brain has not always been esteemed as the locus of that highly complex and contradictory entity, the human mind. In ancient Egypt, the soul and all mental functioning were thought to be located in the heart, although some scholars assigned this role to the liver. Hippocrates, in fourth-century (B.C.) Greece, identified the brain as "the interpreter of consciousness" and deduced Cited by: 4.
The brain is divided into areas which are each responsible for different areas of functioning. The brain can be divided into three basic units: the forebrain, the midbrain and the hindbrain. The hypothalamus is the area of master level integration of homeostatic control of the body's internal environment.
Maintenance of blood gas concentrations, water balance, food consumption, and major aspects of endocrine and autonomic nervous system control require hypothalamic function.
A fundamental impediment to an "Integrative Neuroscience" is the sense that scientists building models at one particular scale often see that scale as the epicentre of all brain : Evian Gordon.

Reentry in nervous systems is the ongoing bidirectional exchange of signals along reciprocal axonal fibers linking two or more brain areas. The hypothesis that reentrant signaling serves as a general mechanism to couple the functioning of multiple areas of the cerebral cortex and thalamus was first proposed in and (Edelman, ).A review of the amount Cited by: Integrative center that is posterior to and receives information from the primary somatosensory area, thalamus, and other parts of the brain.
Somatosensory Association Area Integrative center that allows you to recognize objects by touch. The brain works like a big computer. It processes information that it receives from the senses and body, and sends messages back to the body. But the brain can do much more than a machine can: humans think and experience emotions with their brain, and it is the root of human intelligence.
