That point is either a measurement of behaviour and a ubiquitous controlling variable within the lives of all residing issues has been good famous for a few years. the decade has obvious a burgeoning of curiosity within the quantitative research of timing behaviour, and development over the last 5 - 6 years has been fairly outstanding, with the book of a number of significant new theoretical contributions. There has additionally been significant growth in behavioural method up to now decade. within the region of reinforcement schedules, for instance, the venerable interresponse–time time table, fixed–interval top process and period bisection activity were complemented through a 'second new release' of incisive tools for examining timing behaviour. one other region of contemporary improvement is the research of the neurobiological substrate of timing behaviour. numerous learn teams are presently learning the involvement of assorted vital neurotransmitter structures within the timing behaviour, and the facility of centrally performing medicines and discrete mind lesions to change timing tactics. yet one more fresh improvement in timing study is the transforming into discussion among fields that experience grown up individually, even though, superficially not less than, they appear to have a lot in universal: the experimental research of 'interval timing', ordinarily the province of experimental psychology, and behavioural chronobiology. the previous few years have noticeable a growing to be curiosity within the comparative homes of the interior 'clocks' that control biobehavioural rhythms with time bases within the circadian diversity or longer, and people who are entailed in timing of periods within the diversity of seconds or mins. some of these components of study, and others, are represented within the chapters that make up this quantity. This e-book might help to advertise extra interactions between researchers who hail from disparate disciplines, yet who percentage a typical curiosity within the temporal houses of behaviour.

Описание: В 1966 году в Национальной библиотеке в Мадриде были обнаружены два манускрипта, написанные Леонардо. Когда-то они не были учтены при каталогизации, и об их существовании не было известно. Этим двум манускриптам дали условные названия «Мадридский кодекс I» и «Мадридский кодекс II».
«Мадридский кодекс I» состоит из 192 листов 1490—1499 годов написания, содержащих изображения различных механизмов и изложения теории механики. Хотя работа и посвящена механике, в ней есть заметки по астрономии и по оптике.
«Мадридский кодекс II» был создан Леонардо в 1503—1505 гг. и состоит из 158 листов. Он собрал исследования в области геометрии, такие, например, как «квадратуры круга». Кроме этого, в нём содержатся работы по перспективе и оптике. В книге можно найти эскизы морских и топографических карт, рассматриваются проблемы военной техники и архитектуры. Самое интересное в этом кодексе — неосуществлённый проект изменения русла реки Арно, эскизы фрески «Битва при Ангиари» и конного памятника Франческо Сфорца.
