 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Quick Reference Neuroscience for Rehabilitation Professionals
May 262018
 

A concise and quick reference for the practitioner and student who are learning or reviewing the most relevant neuroscience principles supporting rehabilitation therapy. The updated third edition continues to meet a need in the rehabilitation profession that has gone unfilled – the ability to break down neuroscience information into the essential principles that can be used to understand neurological conditions and the principles underlying rehabilitation evaluation and practice. This fully-updated third edition provides a quick review of specific neuroscience concepts and principles that support rehabilitation interventions.In this era of information overload, this text rapidly and thoroughly provides condensed information in a user-friendly, easy-to-use format for readers to review and convey relevant information to patients. Sharon Gutman has organised the text into three parts: the first addresses neuroanatomy; the second addresses the function of neurological systems underlying physical, psychiatric, cognitive, and visual perceptual disorders; and the final section addresses clinical neuropathology related to ageing, addiction, memory, and the neurological substrates of sex and gender. A specific section describes the common neurodiagnostic tests that therapists do not administer but must have knowledge of when results are discussed at treatment team meetings.Features of the third edition:Presented in a simple and organised bulleted format.Large-scale colour illustrations to easily visualise neuroanatomical structures and systems.Text boxes to apply key neuroscience concepts to the understanding of common neurological disorders and treatment.Updated clinical test questions and glossary.The third edition bridges a gap by quickly providing the rehabilitation professional with the most salient information needed to understand neurologic principles underlying rehabilitation practice.

Neurovascular Imaging: From Basics to Advanced Concepts

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology  Comments Off on Neurovascular Imaging: From Basics to Advanced Concepts
May 172018
 

Vascular Neurology, Vascular Neurosurgery and Interventional Neuroradiology are independent fields with dedicated Training Programs. Neuroimaging, and in particular what we call “Neurovascular Imaging” is a unifying factor which can be considered the intersection of these three medical specialties. With this book we aim to cover thoroughly the imaging techniques, potentialities, and present and future applications as applied to all the vascular diseases of the central nervous system from the imaging point of view. This book will comprise eight main sections: (1) The Basics, (2) Arteries of the Head and Neck (3) The basics of Intracranial Arteries (4) Diseases of the vessels (5) Stroke Imaging (6) Veins Imaging (7) Spine Imaging (8) Pediatrics

Behavioral Neuroscience of Learning and Memory

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Behavioral Neuroscience of Learning and Memory
May 132018
 


‘Behavioral Neuroscience of Learning and Memory’ brings together the opinions and expertise of some of the world’s foremost neuroscientists in the field of learning and memory research. The volume provides a broad coverage of contemporary research and thinking in this field, focusing both on well established topics such as the medial temporal lobe memory system, as well as emerging areas of research such as the role of memory in decision making and the mechanisms of perceptual learning. Key intersecting themes include the molecular and cellular mechanisms of memory formation, the multiplicity of memory systems in the brain, and the way in which technological innovation is driving discovery. Unusually for a volume of this kind, this volume brings together research from both humans and animals―often relatively separate areas of discourse―to give a more comprehensive and integrated view of the field. The book will be of interest to both established researchers who wish to broaden their knowledge of topics outside of their specific areas of expertise, and for students who need a resource to help them make sense of the vast scientific literature on this subject.

More than 30 years ago, Neuro-Ophthalmology Review Manual, presented a unique and user-friendly approach to address clinical neuro-ophthalmology principles used in everyday practice. The new Seventh Edition continues that tradition, providing a timely update, while also maintaining the same user-friendly and concise format.

Lanning B. Kline, MD and Rod Foroozan, MD are joined by seven contributors on this Seventh Edition who have organized the book to provide the essential key information on neuro-ophthalmic disorders. The inclusion of over 130 illustrations and 29 tables allows for a user-friendly format and quick access to valuable information.

The Seventh Edition provides a timely and comprehensive update to the current information, effective exercises, and case studies, as well as the addition of a chapter on neuroimaging.

Neuro-Ophthalmology Review Manual, Seventh Edition is a succinct text for all practitioners and residents in ophthalmology, neurology, and neurosurgery. A popular choice among colleagues for more than 30 years, this a must have resource in neuro-ophthalmology

Reviews from the past edition:
“For the doctor who sees the occasional neuro-ophthalmology patient, this book should be an excellent resource. Residents should read this book, because they can learn the subject material. The book could also be an excellent resource on a general practitioner’s shelf, because it is concise and easy to use.”
-William V. Good, Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute, San Francisco, California, Optometry and Vision Science

“Overall, this is a very good introductory textbook for residents in ophthalmology and neurology and can be used as a quick reference book by practitioners in either discipline. It is still the best-sized review book available on the topic for residents preparing for their in-training exams and will continue to be a popular choice for this purpose.”

The Happy Brain: The Science of Where Happiness Comes From, and Why

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Happy Brain: The Science of Where Happiness Comes From, and Why
May 122018
 

Do you want to be happy?

If so – read on. This book has all the answers.*

In The Happy Brain, neuroscientist Dean Burnett delves deep into the inner workings of our minds to explore some fundamental questions about happiness. For starters: what does it actually mean to be happy? Where does it come from? And is there a secret to making it last forever?

In his research into these questions – and many more besides – Burnett unravels our complex internal lives to reveal the often surprising truth behind what makes us tick. From whether happiness really begins at home (spoiler alert: yes – sort of) to what love, sex, friendship, wealth, laughter and success actually do to our brains, this book offers a uniquely entertaining insight into what it means to be human.

* Not really. Sorry. But it does have some very interesting questions, and at least the occasional answer.
