Journey from Cognition to Brain to Gene: Perspectives from Williams Syndrome

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Journey from Cognition to Brain to Gene: Perspectives from Williams Syndrome
Jun 262019
 

A blueprint for the investigation of neurodevelopmental disorders, this book presents the work of a team of scientists using a multidisciplinary, integrated approach to link genes with human behavior. Using Williams syndrome as a model, leading researchers in neuroanatomy, neurocognition, neurophysiology, and molecular genetics have built bridges between disciplines to link higher cognitive functions, their underlying neurobiological bases, and their molecular genetic underpinnings. One of the book’s many strengths is that the scientists from each discipline studied the same individuals with Williams syndrome. As the book shows, Williams syndrome is a fascinating disorder because of the “peaks and valleys” among cognitive domains: severe intellectual deficits but remarkably spared and effusive language; specific impairment in spatial construction but great strength in face processing and sociability. By capitalizing on these dissociations in higher cognitive functioning, the book provides a model for the study of brain-behavior relationships as well as for the mapping of brain and behavior phenotypes to the genome and beyond.Contributors Ralph Adolphs, Twyla Alvarez, Lawrence Appelbaum, Ursula Bellugi, Dennis Burian, Xiao-Ning Chen, Michael Chiles, Stephan Eliez, Albert Galaburda, Hanao Hirota, Wendy Jones, Julie Korenberg, Zona Lai, Liz Lichtenberger, Alan Lincoln, Rumiko Matsuoka, Debra Mills, Helen Neville, Judy Reilly, Allan Reiss, Bruce Roe, Marie St. George, J.

Hospitals and Health Systems: What They Are and How They Work

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Hospitals and Health Systems: What They Are and How They Work
Jun 252019
 

by Charles R. McConnell (Author)

Hospitals and Health Systems: What They Are and How They Work takes a practical approach to explaining the history, development, and structure of modern health care institutions. Early chapters discuss the history of the hospital, Medicare and Medicaid, health insurance, as well as managed care and reimbursement to set the context for the modern hospital and health system network. The text moves on to explain how hospital mergers, reaction to cost escalation, and government and religious affiliations have led to the emergence of health systems, of which hospitals are an important part. Finally, it delves into operating today’s modern hospital, including care structure and organization, direct patient care, staffing, physical facility, business activities (billing, accounting, health information management, electronic health records, etc.), and unions.

Written for undergraduate courses in Hospital and/or Health Systems Administration, this short text can be easily used alongside a Health Management text or by anyone looking to understand how today’s hospitals and health care system evolved and now operates.

Key Features:
• Contributions by experts from both professional practice and academia provide fresh insights and different perspectives
• Each chapter offers key terms, learning objectives, and chapter summaries to enhance learning
• End-of-chapter review and discussion questions encourage critical thinking

Human Oral Mucosa: Development, Structure and Function

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Human Oral Mucosa: Development, Structure and Function
Jun 242019
 

Human Oral Mucosa: Development, Structure and Function is a new text that reflects the considerable increase in knowledge of oral mucosa that has occurred in recent years. Our understanding of the structure of oral mucosa is now established at a molecular rather than a tissue or cellular level. This in turn has revealed a level of function that was previously not suspected, including a sophisticated barrier to the penetration of exogenous materials, and the synthesis of specific antimicrobial compounds, representing components of the innate immune system. There is also a growing realization of commonality in structure and function between regions of oral mucosa and the mucosae of the esophagus and vagina.

The aim of the present volume is to provide a more sophisticated text on human oral mucosa than presently exists in textbooks and to bring together information that is otherwise to be found in separate, specialist volumes into a comprehensive text. It relates structure at the molecular, cellular and tissue level to function and to clinical behavior. The volume is directed to advanced students and researchers in oral biology, as well as those in allied areas of investigation, such as dermatology, gynecology, internal medicine and pathology.

Genomic Structural Variants (Methods in Molecular Biology, v838)

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Genomic Structural Variants (Methods in Molecular Biology, v838)
Jun 132019
 

The completion of a consensus draft sequence for the human genome was the starting point for more thorough investigations of individual genome variation.  The development of array-based strategies made it possible to look at our genome in new ways and for new types of variation to be discovered and characterized. Characterization of copy number variation and other forms of structural genetic variation has highlighted the complexity of human genetic variation and also provided significant insight into the evolution and dynamic nature of our genome. Genomic Structural Variants: Methods and Protocols provides an in-depth description of the developments in our understanding of structural genetic variation and its implications for human disease, from the introduction of microarrays up to current state-of-the-art sequencing strategies. It covers the major technologies used for research and diagnostics as well as web-based resources for variation data, and it then goes into depth regarding specific regions of the genome that differ in variation content. Specific patient groups where copy number variation has been shown to be of great importance are highlighted, and implications for both pre-natal and standard diagnostics are described. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters contain introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.   Authoritative and accessible, Genomic Structural Variants: Methods and Protocols provides complete comprehensive coverage of this burgeoning field.

Epigenetics in Plants of Agronomic Importance: Fundamentals and Applications: Transcriptional Regulation and Chromatin R vol 2

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Epigenetics in Plants of Agronomic Importance: Fundamentals and Applications: Transcriptional Regulation and Chromatin R vol 2
Jun 112019
 

Over the past few decades, chromatin modulation has emerged as an important regulator of gene expression. This second edition provides detailed information on the epigenetic mechanisms in plants, illustrating the value of this research in plants of agronomic importance. It examines recent advances regarding plants’ epigenetic regulation in response to abiotic and biotic types of stress; the epigenetic basis of plant immunity; evolution and functions of plant histones; epigenetic variation and plant breeding; and epigenome editing and crop improvement. The content is intended to promote the development of future biotechnologies to manipulate and selectively activate/inhibit proteins and metabolic pathways to counter pathogens, to treat important diseases, and to increase crop productivity. The development of new fields, like epigenome editing and RNA epigenetics, will certainly improve our understanding of currently known epigenetic modifications and their roles in e.g. host-pathogen interactions, crop productivity, and in response to environmental stimuli. This volume contains twelve new/revised chapters, written by an international team of experts on plant epigenetics, and addresses the needs of researchers and professionals in the fields of agronomics, crop breeding, epigenetics, plant biochemistry, plant developmental biology, and related disciplines.
