As many as 250,000 people in the United States have dystonia, making it the third most common movement disorder following essential tremor and Parkinson’s disease.

Authoritative and reader-friendly, Handbook of Dystonia, Second Edition provides a wide-ranging overview of the latest research and developments regarding the pathogenesis, evaluation, and management of the disease. The book offers detailed coverage of every available treatment option for dystonia and includes four categorized sections on medical management, botulinum toxin injections, phenol and neurolytic therapy, and surgical intervention.

The book reviews the genetic factors of dystonia and supplies in-depth coverage of the neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropathology of the disease. It covers secondary causes of dystonia, including drug-induced and psychogenic presentations. It also examines non-motor symptoms relating to movement disorders and analyzes innovative approaches for treatment including deep brain stimulation.

New to the Second Edition:

Four new chapters dedicated to the discussion of individual botulinum toxins recently approved to treat dystonia: Botox, Myobloc, Disport, and Xeomin
Dystonic symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disorders
The use of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as a treatment option for dystonia
Spasticity and its pathogenesis, evaluation, and treatment with toxins, other injectables and surgical therapies
Summarizing what is known about the disorder, the book dramatically improves the recognition and understanding of this debilitating disease.

Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma: Calming the Fear-Driven Brain

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma: Calming the Fear-Driven Brain
Sep 222018
 

Neurofeedback, a type of “brain training” that allows us to see and change the patterns of our brain, has existed for over 40 years with applications as wide-ranging as the treatment of epilepsy, migraines, and chronic pain to performance enhancement in sports. Today, leading brain researchers and clinicians, interested in what the brain can tell us about mental health and well being, are also taking notice. Indeed, the brain’s circuitry-its very frequencies and rhythmic oscillations-reveals much about its role in our emotional stability and resilience. Neurofeedback allows clinicians to guide their, clients as they learn to transform brain-wave patterns, providing a new window into how we view and treat mental illness. In this cutting-edge book, experienced clinician Sebern Fisher keenly demonstrates neurofeedback’s profound ability to help treat one of the most intractable mental health concerns of our time: severe childhood abuse, neglect, or abandonment, otherwise known as developmental trauma. When an attachment rupture occurs between a child and her or his primary caregiver, a tangle of complicated symptoms can set in: severe emotional dysregulation, chronic dissociation, self-destructive behaviors, social isolation, rage, and fear. Until now, few reliable therapies existed to combat developmental trauma. But as the author so eloquently presents in this book, by focusing on a client’s brain-wave patterns and “training” them to operate at different frequencies, the rhythms of the brain, body, and mind are normalized, attention stabilizes, fear subsides, and, with persistent, dedicated training, regulation sets in. A mix of fundamental theory and nuts-and-bolts practice, the book delivers a carefully articulated and accessible look at the mind and brain in developmental trauma, what a “trauma identity” looks like, and how neurofeedback can be used to retrain the brain, thereby fostering a healthier, more stable state of mind. Essential clinical skills are also fully covered, including how to introduce the idea of neurofeedback to clients, how to combine it with traditional psychotherapy, and how to perform assessments. In his foreword to the book, internationally recognized trauma expert Bessel van der Kolk, MD, praises Fisher as “an immensely experienced neurofeedback practitioner [and] the right person to teach us how to integrate it into clinical practice.” Filled with illuminating client stories, powerful clinical insights, and plenty of clinical “how to,” she accomplishes just that, offering readers a compelling look at exactly how this innovative model can be used to engage the brain to find peace and to heal.

Neuroprotective Therapy for Stroke and Ischemic Disease

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neuroprotective Therapy for Stroke and Ischemic Disease
Sep 202018
 

A critical and comprehensive look at current state-of-the-art scientific and translational research being conducted internationally, in academia and industry, to address new ways to provide effective treatment to victims of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke and other ischemic diseases. Currently stroke can be successfully treated through the administration of a thrombolytic, but the therapeutic window is short and many patients are not able to receive treatment. Only about 30% of patients are “cured” by available treatments. In 5 sections, the proposed volume will explore historical and novel neuroprotection mechanisms and targets, new and combination therapies, as well as clinical trial design for some of the recent bench-side research.

Cerebrovascular and Endovascular Neurosurgery: Complication Avoidance and Management

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Cerebrovascular and Endovascular Neurosurgery: Complication Avoidance and Management
Sep 182018
 

This book is an up-to-date, well-referenced practical resource that offers detailed guidance on the avoidance and management of complications in patients treated for cerebrovascular and spinal vascular disease. All complication avoidance and management techniques currently available to the endovascular/cerebrovascular surgeon are reviewed by pioneers and leaders in the field to provide the clinician with an advanced single point of reference on the subject.
The book is divided into four sections. It opens by discussing general issues, such as definition of complications, medicolegal aspects, the role of resident training, and checklists. The subsequent three sections address the avoidance and management of complications when performing surgical, endovascular, and radiosurgical procedures, covering the full ran

ge of indications and potential adverse events. All chapters have a standardized format, simplifying the search for information on a specific disease process. Numerous intraoperative images are included, and, when appropriate, algorithms for the avoidance, early recognition, and management of complications are presented. Each chapter concludes with a checklist of preparatory steps and “emergency procedures” that each member of the team must perform in order to ensure the best possible outcomes.

Neurobiology for Clinical Social Work: Theory and Practice (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology)

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neurobiology for Clinical Social Work: Theory and Practice (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology)
Sep 132018
 


The last fifteen years have produced an explosion of research on the neurobiology of attachment.

This research, which explores the ways in which affect regulation play key roles in determining the structure and function of the developing brain and mind, has led to a revolution in the way that parent-child relationships are viewed. Although these insights have informed psychiatry as well as cognitive and psychoanalytic psychology, their application to social work practice, education, and research has been lacking.

Here for the first time ever, social work educators Jeffrey Applegate and Janet Shapiro demystify neurobiology and present it anew with the social work audience specifically in mind. Social workers, by virtue of their work with at-risk children and families, occupy a unique position from which to employ this new research in prevention and intervention. This lack of education about neurobiology has unfortunately fostered misconceptions among social workers that these theories are too academic and thus irrelevant to clinical practice. Neurobiology for Clinical Social Work corrects this misconception and introduces social workers to the powerful and practical ideas that are coming out of neurobiological research. The research summarized here offers new insights about the crucial role that relationships play in human development and in professional helping efforts. To set the stage for this inquiry, the authors introduce fundamentals of brain structure, development, and functioning in the first parts of the book.
