The Teenage Brain: A Neuroscientist's Survival ...
19,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Drawing on her research knowledge and clinical experience, internationally respected neurologist—and mother of two boys—Frances E. Jensen, M.D., offers a revolutionary look at the science of the adolescent brain, providing remarkable insights that translate into practical advice for both parents and teenagers. Driven by the assumption that brain growth was pretty much complete by the time a child began kindergarten, scientists believed for years that the adolescent brain was essentially an adult one—only with fewer miles on it. Over the last decade, however, the scientific community has learned that the teen years encompass vitally important stages of brain development. Motivated by her personal experience of parenting two teenage boys, renowned neurologist Dr. Frances E. Jensen gathers what we’ve discovered about adolescent brain functioning, wiring, and capacity and, in this groundbreaking, accessible book, explains how these eye-opening findings not only dispel commonly held myths about the teenage years, but also yield practical suggestions that will help adults and teenagers negotiate the mysterious world of adolescent neurobiology. Interweaving clear summary and analysis of research data with anecdotes drawn from her years as a parent, clinician, and public speaker, Dr. Jensen explores adolescent brain functioning and development in the contexts of learning and multitasking, stress and memory, sleep, addiction, and decision-making. Rigorous yet accessible, warm yet direct, The Teenage Brain sheds new light on the brains—and behaviors—of adolescents and young adults, and analyzes this knowledge to share specific ways in which parents, educators, and even the legal system can help them navigate their way more smoothly into adulthood.

Part I discusses how to write medical reports, especially when consent is required or confidential information is involved. Part II covers contentious issues in various clinical specialties which repeatedly arise in litigation; well-known examples are cases involving whiplash injuries or perinatal brain damage. In Part III lawyers discuss the medico-legal problems of the solicitor's role, court testimony and medical negligence. This book is a valuable reference to all members of the medical profession.

Little Blue Bk Of Marketing
29,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

A step-by-step guide to creating an actionable marketing plan-fast A great marketing plan identifies where an organization is, where it wants to be, and how it will get there. Most companies think they already have such a plan-but often they really have only a budget, a sales goal, or an excuse. What's the solution? According to Paul Kurnit and Steve Lance, it's not about copying someone else's cookie-cutter plan, or retreading your own plan from years past. There's a far more effective option: harnessing the company's own internal brain trust to create something fresh and perfectly tailored. The authors show how to maximize collaboration among all key players in marketing, R&D, research, sales, financial, legal, and senior management. When everyone combines their knowledge, the critical elements become clear, including brand positioning, target audience, and competitive strategy. Filled with easy-to-follow advice for businesses large and small, The Little Blue Book of Marketing is a powerful tool in a small package.
