We are active with our mobile devices; we play games, watch films, listen to music, check social media, and tap screens and keyboards while we are on the move. In Mood and Mobility, Richard Coyne argues that not only do we communicate, process information, and entertain ourselves through devices and social media; we also receive, modify, intensify, and transmit moods. Designers, practitioners, educators, researchers, and users should pay more attention to the moods created around our smartphones, tablets, and laptops.Drawing on research from a range of disciplines, including experimental psychology, phenomenology, cultural theory, and architecture, Coyne shows that users of social media are not simply passive receivers of moods; they are complicit in making moods. Devoting each chapter to a particular mood -- from curiosity and pleasure to anxiety and melancholy -- Coyne shows that devices and technologies do affect people's moods, although not always directly. He shows that mood effects are transitional; different moods suit different occasions, and derive character from emotional shifts. Furthermore, moods are active; we enlist all the resources of human sociability to create moods. And finally, the discourse about mood is deeply reflexive; in a kind of meta-moodiness, we talk about our moods and have feelings about them. Mood, in Coyne's distinctive telling, provides a new way to look at the ever-changing world of ubiquitous digital technologies.

"The dramatic story of the brain's role in creating our world, our experience of it, and ourselves; the basis for a PBS television series by the bestselling David Eagleman. How does a three pound mass of biological matter locked in the dark, silent fortress of the skull produce the extraordinary multi-sensory experience that comprises us, while also constructing reality and guiding us through the endless need to make decisions and determine our judgments and into a future that we are convinced we are shaping? David Eagleman compares the brain to a cityscape with different neighborhoods where neural networks vie for supremacy and determine our behavior in ways we are not always aware or in control of. At the same time, he suggests that the brain works as a storyteller--creating a narrative that allows us to navigate and make sense of a world that it is busy constructing for us"--

"The book is unique in giving those with Mobius a voice, allowing children and adults with the condition to explain what it is like. These fascinating biographies reveal much about the relations between face and facial expression, and emotional expression and emotional experience which we normally take for granted. The narratives also show the creative ways in which those with Mobius construct their lives and how they come to terms with and express their identities with, and yet, beyond their faces. Some with Mobius have been thought to have learning difficulties and autism, since an impassive immobile face has been assumed to reflect inner cognitive problems. This book criticises such work and asks people to look not only at the face but beyond it to see the person.".

CRAZY AND IT WAS is a frighteningly compelling, multi-layered story of one individual's lost years in the prescription drug-saturated medical and mental health systems. The book reveals how corporate forces are influencing healthcare decisions for the millions who take the advice, "talk to your doctor." The author, who is no conspiracy theorist and still relies upon medication, shows through her own research, medical records and journal entries, an up close and personal account of how and why these systems alarmingly fail so many whom they aim to help. Written solely for her own catharsis, this page turner is also an eye-opening source of information for anyone reexamining the widely-pervasive, social assumptions regarding the reliability of pharmaceuticals and the systems that bring them into our lives. How much stock should one place in the strategically used phrase, research shows... Research shows that the prescription pain-reliever, Vioxx, is a safer alternative to aspirin, yet Vioxx was withdrawn from the market in September of 2004 after leading to at least 88,000 heart attacks and strokes, and after contributing to the deaths of an estimated 38,000 individuals. Research shows SSRI anti-depressants like Paxil and Zoloft are safe and effective treatments for depression, yet there have been an alarming number of suicides connected with the drugs, one of many known side-effects that have been repeatedly downplayed by drug manufacturers. And now, "new and exciting" research shows that a freshly patented anti-anxiety medication similar to Klonopin holds promise for treating autistic behaviors even though a key benzodiazepine researcher, more than thirty years ago, called for follow-up studies to confirm or rule out suspected brain damage for millions who had suffered after taking the drugs. Those studies have yet to be undertaken. The science-as-sales-tactic, research shows, delivered a bill of goods to returning college student and single parent, Laurie Oakley. One she never bargained for. Anti-depressants prescribed by her general practitioner were the gateway drugs that landed her squarely into the mental health system where she continued to experience the side-effects of multiple medications; these side-effects were repeatedly misdiagnosed as a worsening mental illness. After even her medical doctors labeled her a hypochondriac while overlooking the side-effects of medications clearly listed in her chart, she decided to do some research of her own. She recovered her health, save for persistent insomnia that sent her back for more treatments. This time, when presented with medication treatments that she knew could cause harm, she would insist upon accountability. While her story may not manage a happy ending, she nevertheless closes on an unexpected high note.

Since Dr. Brizendine wrote The Female Brain ten years ago, the response has been overwhelming. This New York Times bestseller has been translated into more than thirty languages, has sold nearly a million copies between editions, and has most recently inspired a romantic comedy starring Whitney Cummings and Sofia Vergara. And its profound scientific understanding of the nature and experience of the female brain continues to guide women as they pass through life stages, to help men better understand the girls and women in their lives, and to illuminate the delicate emotional machinery of a love relationship. Every brain begins as a female brain. It only becomes male eight weeks after conception, when excess testosterone shrinks the communications center, reduces the hearing cortex, and makes the part of the brain that processes sex twice as large. Louann Brizendine, M.D. is a pioneering neuropsychiatrist who brings together the latest findings to show how the unique structure of the female brain determines how women think, what they value, how they communicate, and whom they’ll love. Brizendine reveals the neurological explanations behind why • A woman remembers fights that a man insists never happened • A teen girl is so obsessed with her looks and talking on the phone • Thoughts about sex enter a woman’s brain once every couple of days but enter a man’s brain about once every minute • A woman knows what people are feeling, while a man can’t spot an emotion unless somebody cries or threatens bodily harm • A woman over 50 is more likely to initiate divorce than a man Women will come away from this book knowing that they have a lean, mean communicating machine. Men will develop a serious case of brain envy.
