Paul Jaminet, Astrophysiker und Shou-Ching Jaminet, Molekularbiologin und Krebsforscherin, waren beide in ihren mittleren Jahren chronisch krank und hatten jeweils ein Elternteil sehr früh verloren. Nach gescheiterten Versuchen, gesund zu werden, richteten sie ihren gesamten Forschergeist für einige Jahre auf das Thema menschliche Ernährung und deren Möglichkeit zur Gesundung beizutragen. Dabei erarbeiteten sie sich 5 Prämissen, um die Forschungsergebnisse zu bewerten. Sie stellten ihre Ernährung entsprechend den auf der Forschungsreise gewonnenen Erkenntnisse um und wurden beide gesund. Ihr Blog ermutigte andere, es ihnen gleich zu tun und auch hier gab es erstaunliche Ergebnisse. Die „Perfect Health Diet“ war geboren. In Amerika ein Bestseller, liegt sie jetzt in deutscher Übersetzung und Anpassung an die hiesigen Ernährungsgewohnheiten vor. Ein passendes Gewicht, das Verschwinden oder die Linderung chronischer Erkrankungen und eine zunehmende Leistungsfähigkeit kann auch das Ergebnis Ihrer Reise sein. Sie müssen nicht, Sie dürfen! Die wissenschaftlichen Grundlagen liefert das Buch – die genussvollen Rezepte der dazugehörige kostenfreie Blog: www.perfecthealthdiet.de Cave: für Vegetarier nur bedingt geeignet Das Buch richtet sich an alle die sich für das Thema Ernährung vertieft interessieren und sich selbst auf eine genussvolle Reise zu mehr Gesundheit machen möchten - natürlich auch Ernährungsberater!

The cockroach is truly an evolutionary wonder. This definitive volume provides a complete overview of suborder Blattaria, highlighting the diversity of these amazing insects in their natural environments. Beginning with a foreword by E. O. Wilson, the book explores the fascinating natural history and behavior of cockroaches, describing their various colors, sizes, and shapes, as well as how they move on land, in water, and through the air. In addition to habitat use, diet, reproduction, and behavior, Cockroaches covers aspects of cockroach biology, such as the relationship between cockroaches and microbes, termites as social cockroaches, and the ecological impact of the suborder. With over 100 illustrations, an expanded glossary, and an invaluable set of references, this work is destined to become the classic book on the Blattaria. Students and research entomologists can mine each chapter for new ideas, new perspectives, and new directions for future study.

Exploring one of the most exciting and potentially rewarding areas of scientific research, the study of the principles and mechanisms underlying brain function, this book introduces and explains the techniques brought from physics to the study of neural networks and the insights they have stimulated. Substantial progress in understanding memory, the learning process, and self-organization by studying the properties of models of neural networks have resulted in discoveries of important parallels between the properties of statistical, nonlinear cooperative systems in physics and neural networks. The author presents a coherent and clear, nontechnical view of all the basic ideas and results. More technical aspects are restricted to special sections and appendices in each chapter.

Brain mechanisms for arousal, alertness, and attention underlie all cognitive functions and all emotional expression. This volume discusses the neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and functional genomics of these states, and the medical consequences of their damage in human patients -- e.g. vegetative states, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, age-related dementias, mood disorders and sleep disorders. The volume also discusses problems related to vigilance, environmental toxins, fatigue states, circadian rhythms, and sleep/wake physiology, and presents and discusses relevant research techniques, with an emphasis on molecular genetics and on human and animal behavior.
