Another terrifying sci-fi page-turner from the author of The Tomorrow Code! Las Vegas is gone--destroyed in a terrorist attack. Black Hawk helicopters patrol the skies over New York City. And immersive online gaming is the most dangerous street drug around. In this dystopic near-future, technology has leapt forward once again, and neuro-headsets have replaced computer keyboards. Just slip on a headset, and it's the Internet at the speed of thought. For teen hacker Sam Wilson, a headset is a must. But as he becomes familiar with the new technology, he has a terrifying realization. If anything on his computer is vulnerable to a hack, what happens when his mind is linked to the system? Could consciousness itself be hijacked? Before he realizes what's happened, Sam's incursion against the world's largest telecommunications company leads him to the heart of the nation's cyberdefense network and brings him face to face with a terrifying and unforeseen threat.

Sound and Music explores the effects of music on emotion and reason from a psychological point of view. Jack Orbach examines the brain of the listener, performer, and composer, engaged in hearing, feeling, understanding, and enjoying musical compositions. He follows the development of music, beginning with the Greek philosopher Pythagoras, who first studied music scientifically, through what is known about music as a science today. Orbach begins with the basic physics of music, and advances into the components as music comes together from different sounds, effecting the mind of those who hear it. He also details the organization of music as it was ordered and manipulated, including musical aptitude in relation to intelligence, while examining the popular methods of training and the mind's response to these processes. Finally, he presents the place of musical therapy throughout history, as well as a comparison of musical practices in various parts of the world.

This book gathers some of the most talented and well-informed experts in the field, who not only summarize the recent breakthroughs and new findings, but also shed light on future research. Special emphasis is placed on the exciting new understanding of the molecular structure of one of the major enzymes (type 1 iodothyronine deiodinase) involved in the activation of the thyroid hormone. This breakthrough culminates the major effort in this field around the world. As a result, we can study the regulation of thyroid hormone activation mechanism at the molecular level. Two other important deiodinase enzymes (types II and III) are also reviewed. Alternate pathways of thyroid hormone metabolism represent another major advance. These pathways are associated with a variety of physiological and disease states, including fasting, glucocorticoid excess, fetal development, and inflammatory and non-thyroidal illnesses. The understanding of these pathways assists us to better understand the physiological and biological basis of the disease process and thus to improve clinical management of patients with thyroidal and non-thyroidal illnesses.
