In der Zeit zwischen 1772 bis 1881 lebte die Mehrheit der Juden, verteilt auf hunderte von kleinen Städten und Dörfern, in dem Gebiet zwischen der Ostsee und dem Schwarzen Meer. Mit dem Aufkommen des Spätabsolutismus begann eine Epoche tiefgehender Transformation. Sie führte zur Auflösung der traditionellen jüdischen Autonomie und einer forcierten Integration in die nichtjüdische Umwelt, verbunden mit einer Erweckung eines nationalen jüdischen Selbstverständnisses. Diese Phase endet mit den Ausbrüchen russischer Pogrome und einer antisemitisch geprägten Gesetzgebung im Zarenreich.Israel Bartal untersucht diese Transformation einer traditionalen Gemeinschaft nach und entdeckt in ihr die Ursprünge der jüdischen Moderne.

Ob damals im Studium oder heute bei der Vorbereitung von Vorträgen, ob bei der wissenschaftlichen Arbeit oder in Diskussionen zur Funktionsweise des Gehirn- immer und immer wieder kam ich an einen Punkt, an dem ich kurz und knapp Informationen zu einer Struktur haben wollte. In den gängigen Lexika fehlen die meisten Termini, und über die Lehr-und Handbücher oder über die Originalarbeiten ist der Zugriff recht langwierig. Kurz und gut: ein Glossar neuroanatomischer und neurofunktionaler Termini mußte her. In langjähriger Arbeit entstand nun das vorliegende Glossar, das all jenen helfen soll, die "mal eben" Informationen zu Strukturen des Gehirns nachschlagen wollen. Dabei war es nicht das Ziel, aktuellste Forschungsergebnisse und -diskussionen zu dokumentieren, sondern solide Grundinformationen zusammenzustellen, die helfen, die entsprechende Struktur schnell und effizient in einen Gesamtzusammenhang einzubetten. In diesem Sinne ist das vorliegende Glossar zu verstehen. Ein herzlicher Dank geht an folgende Personen, die alle einen Teil des Glossars tragen: an Herrn Dr. Lange für die Initiierung des Buches und die reibungsfreie Betreuung, an Frau Wilbertz für das effiziente Vorantreiben der Produktion, an Frau Dr. Harder für das Korrekturlesen und die wertvolle Zuarbeit, an meine Familie für das treue Warten -und, last but not least, an die Firma iAS (www.brainmedia.de) für die Abbildung auf der Titelseite.
