Since the 1980s, MRI scanners have told us much about brain function and played an important role in the clinical diagnosis of a number of conditions - both in the brain and the rest of the body. Their routine use has made the diagnosis of brain tumours and brain damage both quicker and more accurate. However, some neuroscientific advances, in particular those that relate specifically to the mind have provoked excitement and discussion in a number of disciplines. One of the most thought provoking developments in recent neuroscience has been the progress made with 'mind-reading'. There seems nothing more private than one's thoughts, some of which we might choose to share with others, and some not. Yet, until now, little has been published on the particular issue of privacy in relation to 'brain' or 'mind' reading. I know what you're thinking provides a fascinating, interdisciplinary account of the neuroscientific evidence on 'mind reading', as well as a thorough analysis of both legal and moral accounts of privacy. It brings together leading academics from the fields of psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, and law. The book considers such issues as the use of imaging to detect awareness in those considered to be in a vegetative state. It looks at issues of mental imaging and national security, the neurobiology of violence, and issues regarding diminished responsibility in criminals, and thus reduced punishment. It also considers how the use of neuroimaging can and should be regulated. Providing a ground breaking exploration of how brain imaging technologies can throw light on our mental capacities, states, and acts, this is an important new book for psychologists, neuroscientists, bioethicists, philosophers, and lawyers.

A deeply dark and disturbing collection of philosophical poems by Stephanie Elizabeth Knipe
Whereas books on body language have been written by psychologists and sociologists, Marc Mogil's I Know What You're Really Thinking. (Reading Body Language Like a Trial Lawyer.) stands out from the field since it reflects the experience a man who has spent twenty-five years of his life as a trial judge, courtroom special prosecutor, and defense attorney. This intensive view of the different signals of kinesics and territoriality we all unconsciously possess, aids the average person in gaining a valuable insight into ascertaining what a person really feels, who is or isn't telling them the truth, despite any verbiage to the contrary. Dealing with general modes of non-verbal communication, the author explains from a legal mind point-of-view the signs of territoriality and zones of privacy (and how to use them to read people), describes specific bodily gestures, and finally provides an enjoyable and functional experiment to see if you've caught on to the premises of body language. This book is certain to be in demand by psychoanalysts, attorneys, students, employers, interviewees, and those interested in going through life with a better understanding of what the body unconsciously says and does with every comment made by or to us.

Good public relations is no longer just icing-it's a strategic imperative more important to your competitive success than even advertising or marketing. This is true whether you're a century-old multibillion-dollar corporation or a penniless startup. In Rethinking Reputation, public relations guru Fraser Seitel and John Doorley, founder of the Academy for Communication Excellence and Leadership at Johnson & Johnson, examine a fascinating new set of case studies-including the BP oil spill and the launch of CitySlips-to glean the PR dos and don'ts for the new media world, covering both standard reputation maintenance and crisis management. They also show start-up companies and entrenched organizations how to use the power of word-of-mouth to jump-start business like never before. This is a wake-up call from two industry legends-for public relations professionals as well as entrepreneurs, CEOs, and anyone else tasked with representing their organization to the world. These new media lessons include: * Remember that research is cheaper, and more critical, than ever. * Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good-launch your idea before someone else does. * Don't get so excited about social media that you forget about traditional media. * In a crisis, you are never offstage. * Never lie, never whine, and never try to predict the future!
