Applying the insights of neuroscience to architecture has the potential to deliver buildings and spaces that measurably promote well-being and create healthier or more effective environments for specific activities. There is, however, a risk that neuroarchitecture will become just another buzzword, a passing architectural fashion or a marketing exercise just as 'eco', 'green' and 'sustainable' have become. This issue of AD offers the reader an alternative to 'neuro' sound-bites and exposes them to the thinking which led to the design of the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour (SWC), a pioneering medical research facility designed to foster collaboration between researchers. Multi award winning, the SWC was one of the first buildings in the world designed to take into account what has been learned about how the work space affects behaviour and is a highly effective building in which to work. Readers will gain a richer, deeper insight into the complex mental and existential aspects of architecture, design, and our many senses, how they interact and might interact in the future, and how that knowledge can be used to design more effective buildings and built environments.

"Architectural spaces are anchors for our memory. We find our place in the room by means of our sensory perception; the brain makes use of surfaces and spatial systems in order to store and organize the world we live in. The understanding of this principle forms the basis for the transfer of the results of recent neuroscientific research to architectural practice, as discussed in this book. Neuroarchitecture links neuroscience, perception theory, and Gestalt psychology, as well as music, art, and architecture, into a holistic approach that focuses on the laws of structure formation and the movement of the individual within the architectural space. Christoph Metzger, the author of Building for Dementia and Architecture and Resonance, analyses buildings designed by Alvar Aalto, Sou Fujimoto, Hugo Häring, Philip Johnson, Hermann Muthesius, Juhani Pallasmaa, James Stirling, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Peter Zumthor in the context of the Amsterdam School of Architecture and their criticism of functionalism in order to develop bases and criteria for a modern, people-related architecture that is indebted to neuroscientific knowledge"--Publisher's website.
Neuropeptides regulate multiple physiological processes such as learning, reproduction and growth, both in vertebrates and invertebrates.
Neuropeptides regulate multiple physiological processes such as learning, reproduction and growth, both in vertebrates and invertebrates. In my doctoral thesis, I aimed at gaining insights into the neuroarchitecture and the central regulation of peptidergic systems in the larval ventral ganglion (LVG) of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. In particular, I focused on the central regulation of peptidergic neurons which are involved in the control of ecdysis, because ecdysis is a vital and highly conserved behavior under complex neuroendocrine and central regulation. My dissertation consists of six chapters that address three key aspects: 1) Chapter I contains a three-dimensional morphological description of peptidergic systems in the LVG that helps to identify the neural network connections between peptidergic neurons and their pre- and postsynaptic neurons. The ensuing Chapter II then deals with the neuroarchitecture of aminergic neurons in the LVG, because aminergic neurons are likely to interact with peptidergic neurons. 2) Chapter III focuses on the identification of neurotransmitters that are involved in the central regulation of the ecdysis-relevant CCAP-producing neurons. The subsequent chapters IV and V are concerned with the development of methods for the transient synaptic isolation of CCAP-producing neurons during calcium imaging experiments, and the cell-specific silencing of nicotinic ACh receptors, respectively. 3) Chapter VI finally describes the generation and characterization of fluorescent neuropeptide fusion proteins that have been developed to measure neuropeptide release from peptidergic neurons in the intact CNS.

As complex, biological organisms, neuroarchitecture aims to address notions that natural and built environments can effect changes in our organismic systems at cellular, neurological, emotional, perceptual, and cognitive levels. Knowing this however, there is still little quantifiable data regarding the metrics of interior environments and how they impact human cognition. The question thus arises: Can we attempt to quantify human perception pertaining to architectural experience through the use of sensing technologies, in order to substantiate the effects of natural elements, and thus inform a design for improved mental well-being? This thesis aims to explore these ideas first through existing knowledge and theory regarding human perception and sensory stimulation. Furthermore, through self-analysis per the use of modern sensing technologies, both cognitive and environmental data will be gathered in order to gain an understanding of the relationships between spatial qualities and the physiological responses they evoke. Through this method of theory and data collection, a more informed design framework will be proposed to design a student residence that places a greater focus on improved mental well-being.

This volume provides an in-depth review of the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in ischemic brain damage. The book features contributions from more than 100 leading international authorities in all relevant clinical and basic science disciplines. These experts synthesize the latest findings on molecular events that play a key role in neuronal cell death or in neuroprotection after ischemia. This volume is an essential resource for all physicians treating stroke and for researchers investigating the molecular pathology of ischemic brain damage. The book is also a valuable source of promising new ideas of pharmacologists developing anti-ischemic drugs for treatment of stroke.

Contains extensive discussions of such topics as stimulation of oligodendrocyte differentiation in culture by growth in the presence of a monoclonal antibody to sulfated glycolipid; cell adhesion and neurite extension in response to two proteolytic fragments of laminin; and tissue plasminogen activator binding to cerebellar granule neurons.
