Handbook of Mammalian Vocalization is designed as a broad and comprehensive, but well-balanced book, written from the neuroscience point of view in the broad sense of this term. This well-illustrated Handbook pays particular attention to systematically organized details but also to the explanatory style of the text and internal cohesiveness of the content, so the successive chapters gradually develop a consistent story without losing the inherent complexity. Studies from many species are included, however rodents dominate, as most of the brain investigations were done on these species. The leading idea of the Handbook is that vocalizations evolved as highly adaptive specific signals, which are selectively picked up by the brain. The brain serves as a receptor and behavioural amplifier. Brain systems will be described, which allow vocal signals rapidly changing the entire state of the organism and trigger vital biological responses, usually also with accompanying emission of vocalizations. Integrative brain functions leading to vocal outcome will be described, along with the vocalization generators and motor output to larynx and other supportive motor subsystems. The last sections of the Handbook explains bioacoustic structure of vocalizations, present understanding of information coding, and origins of the complex semiotic/ semantic content of vocalizations in social mammals. The Handbook is a major source of information for professionals from many fields, with a neuroscience approach as a common denominator. The handbook provides consistent and unified understanding of all major aspects of vocalization in a monographic manner, and at the same time, gives an encyclopaedic overview of major topics associated with vocalization from molecular/ cellular level to behavior and cognitive processing. It is written in a strictly scientific way but clear enough to serve not only for specialized researchers in different fields of neuroscience but also for academic teachers of neuroscience, including behavioural neuroscience, affective neuroscience, clinical neuroscience, neuroethology, biopsychology, neurolingusitics, speech pathology, and other related fields, and also for research fellows, graduate and other advanced students, who widely need such a source publication. The first comprehensive handbook on what we know about vocalization in Mammalians Carefully edited, the handbook provides an integrated overview of the area International list of highly regarded contributors, including Jaak Pankseep (Washington State University), David McFarland (Oxford), John D. Newman (NIH ? Unit on Developmental Neuroethology), Gerd Poeggel (Leipzig), Shiba Keisuke (Chiba City, Japan), and others, tightly edited by a single, well regarded editor who has edited a special issue in Behavioral Brain Research on the topic before

Handbook of Ultrasonic Vocalization: Window into the Mammalian Brain, Volume 25, is an exhaustive resource on ultrasonic vocalizations in vertebrates, providing full coverage of all aspects of these vocalizations. The book also demonstrates the usefulness of ultrasonic vocalizations in studies of animal communication, sociobiological states, and in mammalian models of affective disorders, addictions and neurodevelopmental disorders, making it an indispensable resource for researchers using animal models. The book begins with the evolution of vocal communication before discussing mechanisms of ultrasound production,

This landmark book is the first comprehensive account of all 46 land-breeding mammal species known in New Zealand, native and exotic, wild and feral, living and extinct. With contributions from 29 leading authorities in the field, the book describes New Zealand mammal history, biology, and ecology, and brings together much information previously unpublished or scattered throughout diverse literatures. Standardized for easy reference, each species is arranged under conventional headings. The book emphasizes throughout that because the only native land-breeding mammals in New

This book on noninvasive approaches to the study of animal populations in nature includes historical and analytical reviews of the studies of color patterns, of acoustic, behavioral and structural features (including many qualitative variations like nose, ear, tooth, eyes, tail traits, dermatoglyphics etc.) in whales, dolphins, seals and some other mammalian groups. Phenetics that studies the frequencies of occurrence of qualitative detectable variations, or phenes, thus reflecting the populations's genetic characteristics, proves to be a new powerful methodology of noninvasive

There is a long tradition of theory and research on emotions and social processes conducted within a biological framework. Emotions and social processes are intimately related, since emotions are a central feature of social interaction. The chapters in the first three parts of this volume demonstrate the wide range of approaches and problems in the biological psychology of emotions, followed by further chapters which examine the current state of research in those areas of social psychology in which psychophysiological methods
