Neurobiology of Actin: From Neurulation to Synaptic Function

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neurobiology of Actin: From Neurulation to Synaptic Function
Nov 082018
 

This text is an introduction to the interface between the actin cytoskeleton and the myriad of issues fundamental to the understanding of the nervous system. It covers the neurobiology of actin ranging from basic cellular organization and function to the roles of actin in the health and disease states of the nervous system.

Its opening chapter presents the fundamental concepts required to appreciate the details of the molecular machinery that regulates actin in a cellular context, setting the stage for the first part of the book which reviews the neurobiology of actin at the cellular level. The latter section of the book then discusses the functions of actin in the context of neurobiological issues ranging from early development to synaptic function and disease states of the nervous system. This text is intended for neuroscientists interested in investigating the actin cytoskeleton in the context of their particular neuroscience research program, and its chapters are cross-referenced in order to assist readers in finding relevant information that is covered in greater depth in other chapters.

The Neurobiology of Spatial Behaviour

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Neurobiology of Spatial Behaviour
Nov 072018
 

This book explores the relationship between cellular processes and animal behavior. It does this by focusing on the domain of navigation, bringing together scientists from either side of the brain-behavior divide in an attempt to explain the linkage between spatial behavior and the underlying activity of neurons.

The Neurobiology of Spatial Behaviour is organized into two sections. Section one deals with the so-called “higher” levels of description – studies of spatial behavior and the brain areas that might underlie such behavior. The section begins with insects, remarkably sophisticated navigators, and ends with humans, examining along the way issues such as whether animal brains contain maps and whether spatial and non-spatial information interact, and if so, how? Section two delves further into the brain and focuses on the mammalian representations of space and the role of place cells.

These issues have far wider ramifications that simply helping us to understand the process of navigation. This system might provide a model for how other forms of knowledge, beliefs and intentions are encoded in neurons. As such, the book will be of interest to an interdisciplinary audience, including ethologists, psychologists, behavioral neuroscientists, computational modelers, physiological neuroscientists and molecular biologists.

Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury, 2 edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury, 2 edition
Nov 072018
 

As soldiers and combat veterans have returned from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan traumatic brain injury (TBI) has been identified as the signature injury of those wars. This new edition of Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury has been thoroughly revised and updated from the 2005 first edition to reflect the exponential expansion of research and clinical data amassed in the intervening years.

Each chapter was written and reviewed by the foremost authorities in neuropsychiatry, neurology, rehabilitation medicine, and the other specialties who assess, diagnose, and treat these patients. This textbook addresses epidemiology and pathophysiology; neuropsychiatric disorders; neuropsychiatric symptomatologies; special populations and issues; and treatment. Many of the foremost scholars and clinicians who contributed to the previous edition are back with revisions of their chapters, and the volume also features five new chapters on such timely and critical topics as posttraumatic stress disorder, TBI in the context of war, and epidemiology in military and civilian populations. Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury has been crafted to be both comprehensive and readable and to serve as a primary resource for clinicians understanding, assessment, and treatment of patients and their families who suffer from TBI.

Alfred Adler: Problems of Neurosis: A Book of Case-Histories

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Alfred Adler: Problems of Neurosis: A Book of Case-Histories
Nov 062018
 

Unlike some other translations of Alfred Adler’s works this book is clearly translated into English making it highly accessible. Adler sets out his position on a spectrum of psychopahology ranging from various forms of neurosis to more severe psychotic conditions. By doing so he demonstrates that these syndromes have underlying purposes/goals of achieving interpersonal control and god like superiority whilst avoiding the meeting demands of social life for cooperation and reciprocity.

Nutrient Power: Heal Your Biochemistry and Heal Your Brain

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Nutrition  Comments Off on Nutrient Power: Heal Your Biochemistry and Heal Your Brain
Nov 062018
 

Updated to cover the latest scientific developments, a must-read for individuals, families, and medical practitioners that opens a new door in psychiatric health care.

Psychiatry has made great advances in the past fifty years, but it needs a new direction. Today’s emphasis on psychiatric drugs will not stand the test of time. Recent scientific advances, particularly in the molecular biology of the brain, have provided a road map for the development of effective, natural, drug-free therapies that do not produce serious side effects. Psychiatric medications have served society well over the last fifty years, but the need for drug therapies will fade away as science advances.

Nutrient Power presents a science-based nutrient therapy system that can help millions of people diagnosed with mental disorders. The author’s database containing millions of chemical factors in blood, urine, and tissues has identified brain-changing nutrient imbalances in patients diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, behavior disorders, depression, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s disease. This book describes individualized nutrient therapy treatments that have produced thousands of reports of recovery. Walsh’s approach is more scientific than the trial-and-error use of psychiatric drugs and is aimed at a true normalization of the brain.

Depression, schizophrenia, and ADHD are umbrella terms that encompass disorders with widely differing brain chemistries and symptoms. Nutrient Power describes nutrient therapies tailored to specific types, not umbrella solutions to individual problems, and offers a groundbreaking approach to psychiatric health care. Updates to the paperback edition include sections on nutrient therapies for bipolar disorder, expanded chapters on depression and schizophrenia, and analysis of the latest scientific developments in brain research and advanced nutrient therapies.

Cytoskeleton of the Nervous System

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Cytoskeleton of the Nervous System
Nov 052018
 

Without a cytoskeleton, a neuron or glial cell would be a shapeless jelly mass unable to function in the milieu of the brain. If we are to understand neuronal cells function in health and disease, we must determine how the cytoskeleton forms and contributes to neural physiology and pathobiology.

Cytoskeleton of the Nervous System provides a comprehensive, authoritative and up-to-date account of what we now know and what we want to know in the near future–about the functioning of the cytoskeleton of neuronal cells at the molecular level. In lively accounts, which are unafraid to address controversy, Cytoskeleton of the Nervous System introduces readers to the most sophisticated concepts and latest discoveries: from overexpression systems to knock-out models for specific cytoskeletal proteins, from continuous transport assays in vivo to live-cell imaging in primary neurons, and from factors regulating cytoskeleton behavior to the dysregulation of these processes leading to neurological disease.
