Emotion and Stress

Emotion is a universal language understood by all cultures. It is an integral part of our spoken and written language, our art, and our music. Various emotions enable us to respond quickly and appropriately to our environment. And stress, in turn, is created when environmental factors pose a potential threat to our safety. Our fast-paced world requires that we cope with stress in a manner that will harness its energy and minimize its potential to produce disease or distress. This book explains how negative emotions are often generated by stressful situations, and explores how both emotions and stress can have an impact on our health and well being.

Earthquakes and Volcanoes

Though the Earth's outermost shell is comprised of tectonic plates that are constantly shifting underneath our feet, the ground is usually quiet and still. But sometimes, an earthquake violently rocks the ground or an explosive volcanic blast causes destruction to surrounding areas. Yet despite the potential devastating effects, earthquakes and volcanoes also help create the land people live on. Earthquakes and Volcanoes explains what triggers earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, where on Earth they are most likely to occur, how they happen, and how examining disasters of the past can make people safer in the future during these events.

Seeing, Hearing, and Smelling the World

Light, sound, taste, and smell shape our lives dramatically, but how does this happen? How can a far-away noise elicit a joyful memory or a cry? How can the smell of cookies take you back to early childhood? These powerful stimuli exist in our environment, yet remain neutral until our brain decodes the necessary information into meaningful senses. In other words, light is transformed into vision, and sound into hearing, by the brain and the brain only. Seeing, Hearing, and Smelling the World reveals the phenomena underlying our senses, with a brief discussion of what can go wrong (for example, hearing colors or seeing sounds). This book will reacquaint readers with their senses and challenge their fundamental understanding of the amazing human mind.
