Parenting is one of the most important characteristics defining features of mammals. Recent research has begun to elucidate the biological bases of this behavioral repertoire. The present book brings together the interdisciplinary research of an outstanding group of scientists who present their state-of-the-art findings on the biochemical, neurobiological and behavioral factors that help to regulate parenting in a variety of animals including humans. Among the topics explored are evolutionary theories, brain sexual dimorphisms, endocrine regulation, sensory cue, and experimental factors that are coregulated with the onset of parenting behaviors during pregnancy and at parturition. This in-depth volume includes over 125 illustrations to complement the text, and will be an ideal guide for developmental psychologists, psychobiologists, neuroscientists, clinicians, and all scientists interested in behavioral biology.

Neuware - The use of constraints had its scientific and commercial breakthrough in the 1990s. Programming with constraints makes it possible to model and specify problems with uncertain, incomplete information and to solve combi natorial problems, as they are abundant in industry and commerce, such as scheduling, planning, transportation, resource allocation, layout, design, and analysis. This book is a short, concise, and complete presentation of constraint programming and reasoning, covering theoretical foundations, algorithms, implementations, examples, and applications. It is based on more than a decade of experience in teaching and research about this subject. This book is intended primarily for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners in diverse areas of computer science and related fields, including programming languages, computational logic, symbolic computation, and ar tificial intelligence. The book is complemented by a web-page with teaching material, software, links, and more. We take the reader on a step-by-step journey through the world of constraint-based programming and constraint reasoning. Feel free to join in .
