Book Description

How do brain, mind, matter, and energy interact? Can we create a comprehensive model of the mind and brain, their interactions, and their influences? Synthesizing research from neuroscience, physics, biology, systems science, information science, psychology, and the cognitive sciences, The Neurophysics of Human Behavior advances a unified theory of brain, mind, behavior and information. This groundbreaking work helps you more deeply understand, more accurately predict, and more effectively change human behavior - a significant contribution to the fields of psychology, education, medicine, communications, and human relations.
Cognitive neurophysics, as detailed in this work, presents an integrated perspective of brain, mind, behavior, thoughts, and nature. The distinguished authors emphasize the need to view psychological science - and our image of the "self" - in the context of the physical world: matter, energy, and natural laws. NeuroPrint is the powerful application model of this perspective. This comprehensive, detailed algorithm defines the network of interactions that develop brain, mind, behavior, thoughts, and emotions and redefines the meaning of psychotherapeutic intervention.
The Neurophysics of Human Behavior gives the background, tools, and methods for intervention and modeling. It outlines the systematic, behavioral approach of NeuroPrint, promising to promote a deep understanding of the process of human change. Using The Neurophysics of Human Behavior, practitioners and researchers can plot and gauge the paths of change in neurocognitive dynamics and the improvements in mental health.

Reviews

"This book offers the reader a deep, documented exploration of numerous subjects as they relate to behavior. … A challenging read."
- Ronald Mills on Amazon.com

"An unavoidable text for every practitioner of energy psychologies, NLP, and psychotherapy in general. … Its 355 pages are not light reading; every paragraph is packed with information, scientific terminology and rigorous logical reasoning."
- Joaquin Andrade on Amazon.com

"This book fills the missing-link for anyone interested in the application of quantum physics, complexity theory, and study of self-organizing systems to everyday life."
- Peter R. Nichols on Amazon.com
