Developing grounded theory. The second generation is a very useful and clarifying book arisen from a one-day symposium on advances in qualitative methods in Alberta, 2007. The conference was sponsored by the International Institute for Qualitative Methodology (IIQM). For the first time, the students of Barney Glaser and Anselm Strauss, “the second generation” of grounded theory researchers, met to discuss grounded theory and its developments. With the exception of Janice Morse, the authors of this book worked directly with Anselm Strauss and Barney Glaser. In this volume they provide a description of the history, principles and practice of the grounded theory methods.
This article is a review of the book: Clinical aspects of electroporation, by Stephen T. Kee, Julie Gehl, Edward W Lee, which is published by Springer Press.

The review presents the newly published book "Electrophysiological Recording Techniques" by Humana Press. This is an important collection of articles devoted to an issue that has gained increasing attention in modern neuroscience research - electrophysiological recording techniques. The present book is a timely update of methods spanning from single cell recordings to local field potentials, cortical, and scalp EEG recordings. The book presents the progressive development of electrophysiological recording methods by including both existing and new advanced technologies. Theoretical considerations on important issues like current source density analysis, local field potential and signal generation are also in focus. In most of the chapters, methods are illustrated with specific experimental results and are discussed towards future developments and applications. Chapters can be read independently because each chapter appears with its own theoretical background, literature survey and specific methodology. The book can be of interest to a broader audience willing to look at the contemporary state of development of electrophysiological methods. Also, it can be of special interest to scientists with high expertise working in the field of neuroscience and behavior.

Review of the book entitled Cultural-Historical Perspectives on Teacher Education and Development: Learning Teaching, 2010, Routledge: Taylor & Francis Group, London and New York (Edited by Viv Ellis, Anne Edwards, and Peter Smagorinsky). The review first discusses the importance that sociocultural perspective taken on by educationalists has had in the recent paradigms for investigating learning and the significance this has in the development and implementation of Cultural-Historical Activity Theory (CHAT). The review then moves on to discuss how the fourteen chapters of the book go about meeting the main aims of the book: 1. Demonstrate the contribution of sociocultural and cultural-historical activity theory (CHAT) towards an understanding of teacher learning; 2. Offer a strong exemplification of a CHAT research focus in this domain; 3. Show what teachers learn, how they learn and where they learn, using specific research examples based in CHAT.; Reseña del libro Cultural-Historical Perspectives on Teacher Education and Development: Learning Teaching, 2010, Routledge: Taylor & Francis Group, London and New York (Coordinado por Viv Ellis, Anne Edwards, and Peter Smagorinsky). Primero, la reseña explica la importancia que la perspectiva sociocultural ha tenido en recientes paradigmas para la investigación del aprendizaje y el significado que ha tenido esta perspectiva en el desarrollo y aplicación de la Teoría de Actividad Cultural-Histórica (CHAT).
