Book recommendations for brain / arousal / EEG / neurotransmitters / meds?

I would like to get some book recommendations on the following topic: the connection between brain arousal states (am I using that term correctly?) (e.g. sleepy, alert, hyperalert/anxious), EEG states (e.g. theta, alpha, beta), and various neurotransmitters and perhaps even psychotropic medications. [more inside]

Best way to scan a book image into a high-quality print?

Hi all, I am a neuroscience student and I'd like to get my mentor a print of one of Santiago Ramon y Cajal's famous drawings of a neuron as a going away gift. Unfortunately, I can't find anywhere that sells prints or photos of these drawings online, but I was able to find a book at my university's library that has larger (12" x 24") high quality images of these drawings. My question: what is the best way to go from book to print? Are there particular scan qualities or types? Particular types of paper/material to print onto? Places (FedEx, architecture firms) to go to? Any advice would be really helpful. Thanks! Brian

ISO Blogs About Books About Mental Health/Psychology

Anyone know of any good blogs that focus on books about mental health, addictions, neuroscience, psychology? NOT looking for blogs about those subjects in general, but seek only blogs about new and interesting books that cover these topics. Blogs about health books in general are also of interest. Thank you, Hive Mind!!!
