    PDF NEW [Anxious by Joseph E. LeDoux] This book is way way too difficult for undergraduates and beyond most graduate students It is really a very prolonged professional journal article The first two chapters or so are excellent about our thinking in general But these are followed by 200 pages of multiple arguments on why scientists should not believe animals have emotions These become tedious and pedantic dwindling to long angel on pinheads like arguments These may mean somethi

    PDF NEW [Anxious by Joseph E. LeDoux] I certainly agree with his key point that the use of the word fear to describe both the non conscious defence systems in the brain as well as the conscious emotion has led to a bit of a mess You can basically get the whole point of the book in this article

Free read ↠ Anxious by Joseph E. LeDoux 107 N the United States In Anxious Joseph LeDoux whose NYU lab has been at the forefront of research efforts to understand and treat fear and anxiety explains the range of these disorders their origins and discoveries that can restore sufferers to normalcyLeDoux’s groundbreaking premise is that we’ve been thinking about fear and anxiety in the wrong way These are not innate states waiting to be unleashed from the brain but experiences tha. This book examines the neuroscience of anxiety though psychology also makes a prominent appearance in the discussion particularly toward the end of the book It s written by one of the top researchers in the field emotional neuroscience though LeDoux discusses the work of other labs comparing and contrasting their work with that of his own and thus giving an idea of the fault lines in the field By that I mean the uestions that remain in dispute not who hates whom The book addresses a number of key uestions such as How does brain activity result in the emotional experience How do conscious emotional feelings relate to and interact with non conscious responses to threatening stimuli Is the human emotional experience a hand over from animal ancestors or a uniuely human condition How effective are drug based versus psycho therapeutic approaches to anxiety disorders What has been learned about extinguishing anxious responses to threatening stimuli Needless to say this book doesn t answer all the uestions as many of the uestions particularly those regarding consciousness remain to be definitively answered It does offer a great overview of the state of understanding in the present day I won t present a chapter by chapter outline but rather a look at the book s general flow LeDoux starts by laying groundwork and in this case that means clarifying the relationship between fear and anxiety While the former often captures the imagination because of its dramatic and traumatic causes the latter is of a concern as its grinding long term effects can cripple the immune system and have other adverse effects The early chapters also discuss what has been learned about how emotions are formed in the brain and how views about this have changed over time Chapter five is where LeDoux explores the relationship between animal emotionality and human emotional life This is an important subject as it relates to the uestion of whether research with animals can teach us anything relevant to the human experience As it has become progressively difficult to conduct any research that causes human subjects any emotional distress this uestion may be instrumental to making progress in the field Chapters six through eight are interconnected by the uestion of consciousness Chapter six discusses the nature of consciousness which remains one of the most slippery and least understood concepts in the natural world Chapter seven delves into memory and consciousness an important topic as anxious responses can be viewed as learned responses and this begs the uestion of unlearning Memory will later be revisited with respect to the uestion of whether it s possible to erase painful or anxiety inducing memories ala Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind based on work that came out of LeDoux s lab and if so whether it s a good idea The final consciousness chapter gets into consciousness of emotion specifically as opposed to all the other thoughts and feelings of which one can be consciously aware The last three chapters are also interconnected by movement from the uestion of how is anxiety felt experienced to the uestion of what one can do about it The first of these chapters discusses an epidemic of anxiety entitled 40 million anxious minds and that refers to the US alone and what has been learned about drug based treatments As it happens drug based treatments haven t proven reliably effective leaving plenty of room for other approaches eg psychotherapy This fact is the basis for the last two chapters that discuss different approaches to extinguishing the connection between a stimulus and the anxious response The first of theses chapters ch10 is general and the last chapter dives deep into the research that has been done in recent years Chapter 11 also offers a nice discussion of how breath exercises and meditation can be instrumental in reducing the adverse effects of anxiety As would be expected of a scholarly work the book is heavily annotated has an extensive bibliography and uses a great number of graphics in an attempt to lend clarity I would put this work in the same category as the works of Robert Sapolsky That is to say it resides in a space between the level of detail usually seen in works of popular science and that which is seen in textbooks for specialists That is to say LeDoux does get into some detail and this isn t a light read for anyone without a heavy duty background in biological sciences That said if you have a basic scientific literacy and or don t care too much about the fine detail it s by no means impossibly dense When it s not diving into the various brain regions and neuronal pathways it s uite readable I d recommend this book for anyone who is interested in a detailed look at how anxiety arises and how it can be uelled

Free read ↠ Anxious by Joseph E. LeDoux 107 “ Anxious helps to explain and prevent the kinds of debilitating anxieties all of us face in this increasingly stressful world” Daniel J Levitin author of  The Organized Mind and  This Is Your Brain On MusicA comprehensive and accessible exploration of anxiety from a leading neuroscientist and the author of Synaptic SelfCollectively anxiety disorders are our most prevalent psychiatric problem affecting about forty million adults i. You could look at this book s title two ways You could say that it is inaptly named as over 35ths of the book don t even deal with the topic directly and instead provide the needed background for you to understand the final fifth of the book which does treat on the topic Or conversely you could say that it has the PERFECT title because Anxious is exactly how you ll feel as you wade through hundreds of dense dry pages waiting for the topic to swing back around to anxietyThe first chunk of the book discusses the physical response of fear He explains in the beginning that he decided to write a science book for popular consumption after finding the process of writing a college textbook unpleasantly collaborative That s fine but don t mistake this book for a popular science book It is heavily laced with specialist terms It is rather a book for an audience of professional psychologists or upper level psychology students and it reads like the textbook he wasn t happy with writingMuch of the middle sixty percent of the book has nothing to do with the topic at hand other than to provide essential background to understanding his theories on anxiety that he presents at the end This is fine but I have a feeling there are many who bought a book purporting to be for casual readers with such a grippingly applicable title as Anxious because they expected something a bit accessible and tinged for non experts This instead is a presentation on theories on how therapists and lab researchers can advance the field of anxiety treatment A worthy goal but selling this as a popular science book is a bit of a scamThe unconditioned stimulus is having my money taken in a ruse The conditioned stimulus is buying a book by Joseph E LeDoux The unconditioned response is feeling had And the conditioned response is increased wariness the next time I see his name on a spine
