The Private Life of the Brain

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Private Life of the Brain
May 182019
 

How do our unique personalities emerge from our anatomically identical physical brains? What gives rise to our emotions? Why do some drugs make us ecstatic while others make us miserable? For centuries, the most elusive and tantalizing questions about how the human mind works were left to the esoteric realm of philosophers. But in the last decade, there has finally been an explosion of interest from those who study the physical brain. In this groundbreaking scientific exploration, internationally acclaimed neuroscientist and author Susan Greenfield demystifies the private life of the brain. Embarking on an excursion deep inside the human brain, Greenfield takes us beyond the intricate tangle of cells, electrical impulses, and molecules to examine the physical basis of our emotions and search for the answer to one of the most enduring mysteries in modern science: How is a unique, subjective experience generated in each one of us? Informed by years of cutting-edge research, as well as compelling personal anecdotes that we can all relate to, Greenfield reveals that emotions, triggered by individual life experiences, are the very foundation upon which our brains build our unique minds. Offering us a brain scientist’s perspective on the intricate dance of emotions and cognitive abilities, Greenfield asserts that this extraordinary sense of the self is inextricably bound to the often mercurial world of emotions. Rich in insights from such diverse realms as neuroscience, pharmacology, psychology, philosophy, and everyday life, The Private Life of the Brain traces the life of our mind and reveals how our childhood experiences; intense emotions like fear, depression, and euphoria; and the drugs that induce these extreme feelings dramatically affect who we are. She argues that emotions exist at the core of our selves to a greater or lesser degree, depending on how much we are using or losing our mind at any given moment. Timely and provocative, The Private Life of the Brain is a tour de force that provides an eye-opening look through the authoritative lens of neuroscience. Captivating for novices and experts alike, this intriguing book presents an enlightening journey into the human brain for anyone who has ever pondered the mystery of who we are and how the brain works. ===== From the back cover: What is happening in the brain when we drink too much alcohol, get high on Ecstasy or experience road rage? Emotion, says internationally acclaimed neuroscientist Susan Greenfield, is the building block of consciousness. As our minds develop we create a personalized inner world based on our experiences. But during periods of intense emotion, such as anger, fear or euphoria, we can literally lose our mind, returning to the mental state we experienced as infants. challenging many preconceived notions, Susan Greenfield’s ground-breaking book seeks to answer one of science’s most enduring mysteries: how our unique sense of self is created. ===== Contents ===== Preface 1. The Idea 2. The Story So Far 3. The Child 4. The Junkie 5. The Nightmare 6. The Depressive 7. The Human Condition 8. The Answer?

Bipolar Disorder: Clinical and Neurobiological Foundations

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Bipolar Disorder: Clinical and Neurobiological Foundations
May 162019
 

Bipolar disorder is the most complex psychiatric disorder with different types of mood episodes, subtypes, varied course, and significant co-morbidity. Not surprisingly, this complexity poses unique challenges to clinicians for optimal management of those with bipolar disorder.

There has been an explosion of research into the causes and treatment of this condition over the past two decades. It is a daunting task for a practising clinician to make sense of this research and to remain up to date with progress in the understanding of the neurobiology and treatment of bipolar disorder. This book synthesizes and translates the vast array of research knowledge into information that is clinically relevant and meaningful for a clinician.

The book provides a comprehensive, yet focused, reference work on bipolar disorder for both trainees and practising psychiatrists. The two editors are leaders in the field who have published extensively on bipolar disorder. They have assembled a team of experts from around the world: in many instances, chapters are co-authored by people from different continents, bringing a truly international perspective to this important topic. The book covers the basic science of the pathology underlying bipolar disorder but addresses the clinical aspects of the disease throughout.

The book comprises four sections:

Descriptive Aspects—issues ranging from how the concept of bipolar disorder has evolved over the years to new information about neurocognitive impairment, creativity and economic productivity, and to discussion of the deliberations of the DSM-V committee on changes in diagnostic categories and criteria.

Biology—the contribution of genes to this disorder, changes in circadian rhythms, what we know about brain changes and the role of oxidative stress.

Biological Treatment and Psychosocial Treatment— all the latest information about pharmacological and psychological treatments and the optimal management of this condition.

If you want to provide state-of-the-art care to your bipolar patients, be sure to consult this authoritative reference.

The Scientific American Book of Love, Sex and the Brain: The Neuroscience of How, When, Why and Who We Love

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Scientific American Book of Love, Sex and the Brain: The Neuroscience of How, When, Why and Who We Love
May 162019
 

Who do we love? Who loves us? And why? Is love really a mystery, or can neuroscience offer some answers to these age-old questions?In her third enthralling book about the brain, Judith Horstman takes us on a lively tour of our most important sex and love organ and the whole smorgasbord of our many kinds of love-from the bonding of parent and child to the passion of erotic love, the affectionate love of companionship, the role of animals in our lives, and the love of God.Drawing on the latest neuroscience, she explores why and how we are born to love-how we’re hardwired to crave the companionship of others, and how very badly things can go without love. Among the findings: parental love makes our brain bigger, sex and orgasm make it healthier, social isolation makes it miserable-and although the craving for romantic love can be described as an addiction, friendship may actually be the most important loving relationship of your life.Based on recent studies and articles culled from the prestigious Scientific American and Scientific American Mind magazines, The Scientific American Book of Love, Sex, and the Brain offers a fascinating look at how the brain controls our loving relationships, most intimate moments, and our deep and basic need for connection.

An engagingly written text that bridges the gap between neuroanatomy and clinical neurology

A Doody’s Core Title for 2019! 

One of the best modern outlooks on the pragmatic practice of neurology … far superior to existing books of its size and scope because of the thoughtfulness with which the knowledge about diseases and neurological conditions has been assembled … addressing almost every major point that is encountered on the wards and in the clinic.
From the Foreword by Allan H. Ropper, MD, Executive Vice Chair of Neurology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital; and Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School

Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy delivers a clear, logical discussion of the complex relationship between neuroanatomical structure and function and neurologic disease. Written in a clear, concise style, this unique text offers a concise overview of fundamental neuroanatomy and the clinical localization principles necessary to diagnose and treat patients with neurologic diseases. Unlike other neurology textbooks that either focus on neuroanatomy or clinical neurology, Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy integrates the two in manner which simulates the way neurologists learn, teach, and think.

Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy is divided into two main sections. In Part 1, clinically relevant neuroanatomy is presented in clinical context in order to provide a framework for neurologic localization and differential diagnosis. The diseases mentioned in localization-based discussions of differential diagnosis in Part 1 are then discussed in clinical detail with respect to their diagnosis and management in Part 2.  Part 1 can therefore be consulted for a neuroanatomical localization-based approach to symptom evaluation, and Part 2 for the clinical features, diagnosis, and management of neurologic diseases.

FEATURES
• A clear, concise approach to explaining the complex relationship between neuroanatomical structure and function and neurologic disease
• Numerous full-color illustrations and high resolution MRI and CT scans
• Explanatory tables outline the clinical features, characteristics, and differential diagnosis of neurologic diseases and disorders

REVIEWS

“The high point of this book is the author’s ability to explain concepts logically and practically, using clear language that gets straight to the point, something that is often missing in other texts. This is exemplified in the author’s approach to explaining clinically relevant brainstem and cranial nerve anatomy in chapters 9 through 14.”  Emer R. McGrath, MB, PhD, review in Neurology 2017;88;e182

“The fact that [this book] was written by a single author is not only impressive, but also lends excellent consistency to the text, with emphasis on clinical pearls and the avoidance of minutiae. For example, the stroke chapter describes the role of the ABCD2 score, contains discussion of the difficult issue of when anticoagulation might occasionally be used in the acute setting, and describes the uncommon but important phenomenon of amyloid spells.”  Jus

Reviews on Biomarker Studies in Psychiatric and Neurodegenerative Disorders

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Reviews on Biomarker Studies in Psychiatric and Neurodegenerative Disorders
May 092019
 

This book includes a series of reviews on general aspects of biomarker use in the study of psychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases and the development of medications involved in their treatment. It describes the pros and cons of the various approaches and covers the successes and failures in this research field. It is only by a thorough understanding of the shortcomings that progress can be made. The overall goal is to facilitate the understanding and treatment of these disorders, by providing a viable mechanism of catching up with other areas of modern medicine, such as diabetes and heart disease. Finally, it is anticipated that the development and application of valid biomarker tests and the leveraging of novel drug targets will help the fields of psychiatry on neurodegenerative disorders move into the area of personalized medicine where the right patients can receive the right medication at the right time for the best possible outcome.

Rehabilitation Therapeutics of the Neurological Training: Daoyin Technique in Chinese Medicine

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Rehabilitation Therapeutics of the Neurological Training: Daoyin Technique in Chinese Medicine
May 092019
 

This book introduces the Neurological Training and Educating Technical System (NTETS), providing readers with a useful tool for the recovery of motor function after incurring CNS lesions. NTETS is based on the essential theories of Chinese medicine, central nervous system plasticity and motor function, using the six-step Chinese Daoyin technique to induce the CNS potency. This rehabilitation technique not only applies to acute stage patients who suffer from motor dysfunction caused by CNS lesions, but is also used for regaining motor function in long-term patients who have not experienced any improved motor function through the common rehabilitation methods of today. This informative book on NTETS is a beneficial supplement to modern rehabilitation medicine and serves as a valuable resource for rehabilitation doctors, nurses, graduate students in this field or employees working in neurology, neurosurgery, orthopaedics and geriatrics departments.

Cranial Nerves: Function and Dysfunction, 3rd edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Cranial Nerves: Function and Dysfunction, 3rd edition
May 092019
 

Cranial Nerves: Function & Dysfunction 3e presents problem-based learning cases and clinical testing in a visual format. Cranial Nerves 3e targets students studying neuroanatomy and gross anatomy for the first time across the health sciences.

The text guides users through pertinent information and color-coded functional drawings of the pathways/modalities from the periph¬ery of the body to the brain (sensory input) and from the brain to the periphery (motor output). Each pathway is described according to the direction of the nerve impulse, not according to the embryologic outgrowth of the nerve. Cranial Nerves: Function & Dysfunction 3e separates the nerve fiber modalities, thereby highlighting important clinical aspects of each nerve.
