Stuttering & Anxiety Self-Cures: What 1000+ Stutterers Taught Me

This is the 3rd Edition of the Book.
As the 5 Star-book reviews reveal, Stuttering & Anxiety Self-Cures (SAC) is unique, as it offers concrete, step-by-step methods to self-cure stuttering, a disease that doctors and speech therapists continue to insist is “incurable” — all written by an author who cured himself and has helped many others self-cure. Proof that his methods work is provided by the Success Stories that are posted monthly on Speech Anxiety Anonymous’ (SAA’s) website (the author’s charity, which he alone funds, where self-cured stutterers help others stop stuttering, no charge). This SAC-3rd Edition provides a very real, living, breathing, human story of the author’s 25-year battle to overcome stuttering (as a young attorney who couldn’t say his own name in court). As a bonus, it shares all that the author has learned from his 5,000 Followers on Facebook, virtually all of whom are people who stutter (PWS), many of whom communicate constantly with the author. By late 2018, the author had already done over 2,500 free, coaching sessions with PWS, and he continues to do 25-30 coaching-sessions every week, all free. He began streaming some of his daily coaching sessions live in 2018, and the 700+ videos posted by late 2018 had 25,000+ views on his YouTube and Twticth.tv online channels. Anyone who stutters, or who suffers speech-anxiety in any form, should read this unique book and contact the author (at info@saahelp.org) and launch their own self-cure. If you pop SAC’s cover and read “What Readers Say”, you will see proof that SAC gives the tools that can end speech anxiety, worldwide, forever. Don’t miss it.

Pediatric Traumatic Brain Injury: New Frontiers in Clinical and Translational Research

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of death and disability in children and adolescents around the world and represents a global public health issue. Major improvements in the medical treatment of the initial injury have increased survival rates resulting in the focus shifting to consider the subsequent and longer-term cognitive, emotional and behavioral consequences for the recovering child or adolescent. These disabilities, if left untreated, continue into adulthood with consequent economic and societal costs. This book reviews the research into the consequences of TBI emphasizing the translation of new understanding into effective treatments and interventions, and identifying promising areas for further study. This will be essential reading for neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and pediatricians.

Frontiers in Brain Repair

In the rapidly-evolving landscape of neurosciences, it is no easy task to select a limited array of topics to present in a text such as this. The current volume takes as its purpose to provide a representative survey of the current science of brain repair for those seeking to establish a foundation in the field or to replenish a prior knowledge base that may have lapsed in its currency. It also hopes to offer insights into what remains elusive to our collective investigations, defining the “frontiers” of brain repair for those that are currently immersed in the exciting intersection of biological advances and neuroscientific discoveries.

In Chapter 1 the fundamentals of imaging transplanted cells is discussed with emphasis on animal models as well as the horizon for clinical trials. Then, detailed methods on the culture of neural stem cells is reviewed as a foundation for approaching therapeutic goals. Chapter 3 presents the broad scope of animal models that serve as the foundation for developmental and pre-clinical investigation, with mention of recent genetically engineered mouse models that represent the best models for studying disease development and treatment. Chapter 4 provides background on the delivery techniques to animals and patients that are available, providing vital information on the subtleties of technique necessary for optimal cellular grafting. Chapters 5 and 6 discuss new and evolving information on the origins of brain tumors and the indelible role of stromal and microenvironmental influences on oncogenesis and tumor progression. Subsequently, the utility of neural stem cells as cellular vehicles to deliver chemotherapeutics to broad neuropathology is reviewed. In Chapter 8 the scope of treating brain tumors is expanded beyond stem cells, to present the best biological interventions to improve upon current treatment options for brain malignancy. The last two chapters present a comprehensive review on stem cell and gene therapy options for treating cerebrovascular and neurovascular pathology.

In amassing this collection, my intention has been to provide the reader with a broad introduction into molecular imaging, stem cell biology, cell therapy, animal models, central nervous system malignancies, stroke, and neurodegeneration. My hope is that Frontiers of Brain Repair will be the intellectual soil from which a deeply rooted and well-nourished vintage of neuroscience will arise.

Introducing Neuropsychology

Introducing Neuropsychology investigates the functions of the brain and explores the relationships between brain systems and human behaviour. It draws on both established findings and cutting edge research. The material is presented in a jargon-free, easy to understand manner and aims to guide students new to the field through current areas of research. John Stirling’s Introducing Neuropsychology not only covers brain function but gives clinical examples of what happens when this function is damaged. The text deals firstly with the basics of neuropsychology, discussing the structures of the central nervous system and methods of research used in neuropsychology. The book covers sensory function, the lateral nature of the brain and motor control and movement disorders. The author then looks at higher order cortical functions, with chapters on language, memory and amnesia, visual object recognition and spatial processing and attention. A further chapter covers executive function and describes some psychiatric disorders resulting from dysfunction. With over 80 illustrations John Stirling has provided a user-friendly textbook, which will be essential reading for those studying neuropsychology within the disciplines of psychology, medicine, clinical psychology and neuroscience.
