Emergent Forms: Origins and Early Development of Human Action and Perception

Whereas it is usually assumed that behavioral improvement needs to be dependent upon either actual legislations and the organic rules of morphogenesis and choice, forging a hyperlink among those phenomena has remained an elusive objective. Now in Emergent types, psychologist Eugene C. Goldfield deals a thrilling new theoretical framework--based, partly, at the thought of self-organization--that grants to help researchers of their quest to find the underlying origins and tactics of behavioral improvement.

2008). , 1998). The level of aromatase is significantly higher in the prefrontal cortex of young female rats than their age-matched males. , 2013). Aromatase is strongly inhibited by calcium-dependent phosphorylation by PKC and by cAMP-dependent protein kinase (Balthazart and Ball, 2006). , 2002). , 2008) as well as levels of AMPA receptors, which are involved in hippocampal long-term potentiation. In the case of estradiol, the effect is attributed to the activation of the small GTPase RhoA and the phosphorylation and inactivation of cofilin, a protease that cleaves actin.

A third approach described in this chapter relies on the activation of normal cell repair mechanisms to restore lost synapses. Having understood the signaling pathways that globally modulate learning and memory, it is essential to uncover the specific molecular and synaptic events mediating cognitive function. Accordingly, sophisticated molecular and electrophysiological tools are described in Chapter 3 based on the idea that facilitating synaptic plasticity may eventually lead to better cognitive function, a result that can be achieved by manipulating the activity of neurotransmitter receptors.
