Sinclair, John David. New in Very Good jacket. 6 1/4" X 9 1/4" 232 Pages Indexed. Book is in Brand New condition. The dust jacket has a small tape repair at the bottom spine area. The author is with the Research Laboratories of the State Alcohol Monopoly (Alko) Helsinki Finland. This book shows how a single physiologically valid principle of neuronal function can explain learning, memory, and a wide range of other behavioral findings. The rest principle is a simple assumption about how the strength of neural connections is controlled as a function of their own activity. Overuse makes them weaker, but rest after use makes them stronger. Sinclair's book reviews the physiological evidence for the principle and demonstrates how the rest principle accounts for learning in various situations. The author examines the implications of the principle for compensatory behaviors, attention, sleep, some mental illnesses, the development of neuronal organizations, and a variety of other behavioral and neurophysiological findings. The rest principle provides an essential link between physioloqy and behavior-a link that, if correct, could alter the course of the entire field of psychology.
