Practicing College Learning Strategies presents practical applications of study skills in a clear and concise, workbook style format. The text is known for providing ample exercises throughout each chapter, reflecting the author's belief that students can be taught how to learn more effectively through hands-on reinforcement. Now produced in two-color, the Fourth Edition has a sleek design and is organized around a new learning strategies framework. This framework includes chapter-opening objectives that preview the materials students are about to learn. The author presents the latest research on the brain, helping students to understand how they learn, how to capitalize on their strengths, and how to adjust for their weaknesses. Structured activities and exercises guide students in the reflection process to make the information personal and useful and to provide practice opportunities. The straightforward explanations and structured activities that model the learning process make this text especially useful for first time college students or returning adults. Survival Kit in the first pages of the text provides a quick overview of the most basic skills that students need to be productive from "day one." New to the Fourth Edition is a "Checklist for Evaluating your Classroom Savvy." Two new critical thinking features, Making It Concrete and Making Connections, help students analyze and synthesize what they've learned, and apply new concepts or skills to other courses or situations. Measurable Learning Outcomes have been added to the opening of each chapter, and can act as the basis for selecting content, classroom activities, and assessments such as chapter or unit tests and final projects or exams. Case Study: What's Your Advice? asks students to synthesize and evaluate what they learn in the form of advice to others. Virtual Field Trips are integrated technology boxes; these point to online assignments that explore college social skills such as managing finances, campus safety, and health and well-being issues. Brain Bytes show students how memory strategies work and provide tools to maximize retention for improved performance, school achievement, and personal success.

Brain Function and Oscillations

by W. J. Freeman These two volumes on "Brain Oscillations" appear at a most opportune time. As the "Decade of the Brain" draws to its close, brain science is coming to terms with its ultimate problem: understanding the mechanisms by which the immense number of neurons in the human brain interact to produce the higher cognitive functions. The ideas, concepts, methods, interpretations and examples, which are presented here in voluminous detail by a world-class authority in electrophysiology, summarize the intellectual equipment that will be required to construct satisfactory solutions to the problem. Neuroscience is ripe for change. The last revolution of ideas took place in the middle of the century now ending, when the field took a sharp turn into a novel direction. During the preceding five decades the prevailing view, carried forward from the 19th century, was that neurons are the carriers of nerve energy, either in chemical or electrical forms (Freeman, 1995). That point of view was enormously productive in terms of coming to understand the chemical basis for synaptic transmission, the electrochemistry of the ac tion potential, the ionic mechanisms of membrane currents and gates, the functional neuroanatomy that underlies the hierarchy of reflexes, and the neural fields and'their resonances that support Gestalt phenomena. No bet ter testimony can be given of the power of the applications of this approach than to point out that it provides the scientific basis for contemporary neu rology, neuropsychiatry, and brain imaging.
