Private Myths: Dreams and Dreaming
Every night we enter a mythic realm, a dark, primordial world of fear and desire. What this world offers, Anthony Stevens suggests, may well be the key to understanding our waking mysteries - ourselves, our society, and our history. A prominent psychiatrist and practicing Jungian analyst, Stevens views dreaming from both psychological and neurological perspectives to show how dreams owe their origins as much to our evolutionary history as a species as to our personal history as individuals.
A work rich in symbolic and scientific insight, Private Myths traverses the course of dream interpretation from distant hunter-gatherer times to the present. This analysis is as authoritative as it is wide-ranging, including discussions of the biology of dreaming and the discovery of REM sleep, elaboration of the latest neuroscientific techniques in sleep research, and an assessment of the century-long legacy of analytic practice to dream interpretation. In a close look at the actual processes of dream formation, Stevens relates "dream work" to other creative capacities such as language, poetry, storytelling, memory, play, symptom-formation, magic, and ritual. He draws on his many years of experience to analyze key historical dreams, such as Freud's dream of Irma's injection and Hitler's dream of being buried alive, and enriches this discussion with analyses of his own and his patients' dreams.
Remarkable in its breadth, Private Myths makes the principles of dream interpretation accessible to scientists, the findings of dream science accessible to analysts, and the discoveries of both available to anyone intrigued by the mysteries of dreams and dreaming....

Крупнейшие научные центры заняты изучением проблей сознания, памяти, сна. В книжке пойдет речь о фундаментальных исследованиях мозга человека, проводимых в Институте экспериментальной медицины.
Рассказывая о работах Института экспериментальной медицины, который возглавляет член-корреспондент АН СССР Н.П.Бехтерева автор знакомит читателя с достижениями Отдела нейрофизаологии человека в этом центре. Здесь изучают и заболевания, и общие механизмы работы мозга. В частности, как хранится и шифруются слова, каким образом мозг "извлекает" их из этого хранилища в момент рождения речи.

Sleep related Breathing Disorders and Sleep Stages from ECG Signals
This book introduces a physiologically driven approach to detect sleep related breathing disorder events as well as different sleep stages by evaluating an ECG signal. The introductory chapters provide medical background knowledge concerning this sleep induced breathing failure and the ECG. On this basis, the following chapter discloses the connection between features extracted from the ECG and the occurrence of sleep related breathing disorder events or sleep stages. The features are derived from the heart rate and the morphological side effects of cardiac load fluctuations. In the subsequent chapters, the extracted features are evaluated by applying pattern recognition methods to answer the central question: Is it possible to reduce the diagnostic complexity of this disease by simply recording and processing an ECG signal? The assessment of the presented approach starts by selecting the most suitable classifiers. Subsequently, these classifiers are put to tests in patient dependent and independent scenarios. The achieved classification rates for the sleep related breathing disorder episodes as well as the sleep stages prove that an ECG driven basic diagnosis is feasible....
The Sleep Revolution
In The Sleep Revolution, Arianna claims our cultural dismissal of sleep as time wasted undermines our health and our decision-making, and ravages our relationships, our work lives, and even our sex lives. She takes on sleep from every angle, exploring the latest science on sleep, the manipulative and dangerous sleeping pill industry, and all the ways our addiction to technology disrupts our sleep. She presents recommendations and expert advice on how we can all achieve better and more restorative sleep, and make the power of sleep work for us.
