Developmental Neurobiology tells the extraordinary process of neural development by showing how the scientific discoveries were made and how the hypotheses evolved over time. Each chapter explores the specific mechanisms of development while highlighting the key experiments and methods used to make those discoveries―including descriptions of, and experiments utilizing, both invertebrate and vertebrate animal models. This distinctive approach provides the essential facts while strengthening the reader’s appreciation of the scientific method. Discussions of neurodevelopmental disorders and therapeutic approaches to them will captivate those interested in the more clinical aspects of the field. With its clear illustrations and easy-to-follow writing style, Developmental Neurobiology presents an accessible approach to neural development for undergraduate students.

The Human Brain Book: An Illustrated Guide to its Structure, Function, and Disorders, 2nd Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Human Brain Book: An Illustrated Guide to its Structure, Function, and Disorders, 2nd Edition
Jan 272019
 

This award-winning science book uses the latest findings from neuroscience research and brain-imaging technology to take you on a journey into the human brain.

CGI illustrations and brain MRI scans reveal the brain’s anatomy in unprecedented detail. Step-by-step sequences unravel and simplify the complex processes of brain function, such as how nerves transmit signals, how memories are laid down and recalled, and how we register emotions. The book answers fundamental and compelling questions about the brain: what does it mean to be conscious, what happens when we’re asleep, and are the brains of men and women different?

This is an accessible and authoritative reference book to a fascinating part of the human body. Thanks to improvements in scanning technology, our understanding of the brain is changing quickly. Now in its third edition, The Human Brain Book provides an up-to-date guide to one of science’s most exciting frontiers. With its coverage of more than 50 brain-related diseases and disorders–from strokes to brain tumors and schizophrenia–it is also an essential manual for students and healthcare professionals.

Behavioral Neuroscience of Drug Addiction

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Behavioral Neuroscience of Drug Addiction
Jan 252019
 

This volume highlights current state-of-the-art approaches and important findings on the behavioral neurobiology of drug addiction by prominent neuroscientists. Preclinical chapters span synaptic neuroplasticity associated with drug use, the neural systems underlying conditioned drug effects implicated in drug craving, and the role of sensitization and withdrawal processes in addictive behavior. Chapters on human studies emphasize neuroimaging of neurotransmitters and receptors, drug craving and other cognitive abnormalities in human drug abusers. Human studies also describe work on genetic vulnerability and the neuroeconomics of drug addiction, and novel pharmacological approaches to drug abuse treatment.

Multiple System Atrophy

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Multiple System Atrophy
Jan 252019
 

This textbook provides a comprehensive monography on multiple system atrophy (MSA), a rare and fatal neurodegenerative disorder that presents with autonomic failure and either parkinsonism (MSA-P) or cerebellar ataxia (MSA-C).

The underlying neuropathology of MSA is characterized by striatonigral degeneration (SND), olivopontocerebellar atrophy (OPCA) and unique oligodendroglial cytoplasmic alpha-synuclein inclusions. MSA is therefore classified among the alpha-synucleinopathies such as Parkinson`s disease, pure autonomic failure and dementia with Lewy bodies. Over the last decade there have been important advances in early diagnosis, pathogenesis research and clinical trial activity. The monography will cover the entire spectrum ranging from molecular and genetic work to symptomatic and interventional therapies. The book is written for movement disorder clinicians and basic neuroscientists interested in degenerative movement disorders.

Neurosurgery and Medical Ethics

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neurosurgery and Medical Ethics
Jan 232019
 

This supplement of Acta Neurochirurgica contains the proceedings of the Ninth Convention of the Academia Eurasiana Neurochirurgica held in Chateau St. Gerlach, Houthem, The Netherlands, 29 July – 1 August 1998. During this convention a three-day symposium on Neurosurgery and Medical Ethics was held. In this time of tremendous technical advancement in medicine in general and neurosurgery in particular, we are liable to lose sight of the sick patient as a human being, and the odds are that he will be the object rather than the subject of our action in the near future. It is a purpose and a task of the Academia Eurasiana Neurochirurgica to recognize this thread and to pay attention to tradition, morality and ethics in neurological surgery. The theme of this convention and the subject of the symposium met this purpose as no other. In the scientific sessions during the first day, the moral backgrounds of medical ethics in the most important cultures and religions in east and west were elucidated by invited experts in this field. A mutual respectful understanding of each other’s conception of and belief in ethical principles is a growing necessity in our multicultural societies in both continents. On the second day, the ethical aspects of different fields of neurological surgery were discussed by members of the Academia. In this context, also the internationally much-discussed and much-criticized regulations on euthanasia in The Netherlands were explained.

Current Progress in the Understanding of Secondary Brain Damage from Trauma and Ischemia: Proceedings of the 6th International

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Current Progress in the Understanding of Secondary Brain Damage from Trauma and Ischemia: Proceedings of the 6th International
Jan 232019
 

Information is provided from the basic and clinical sciences on the mechanisms damaging the brain from trauma or ischemia. New aspects involve the endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondrial failure, pathobiology of axonal injury, molecular signals activating glial elements, or the emerging therapeutical role of neurotrophins. Experimental issues involve a better analysis of the ischemic penumbra, the salvagable tissue. Therapeutic contributions reach from the environmental influence to gene expression, including neuroprotection, such as hibernation – mother nature’s experiment – or hypothermia which is reported to induce cell swelling. Treatment issues deal also with thrombolysis and combination therapies, or with the clearance of adverse blood components – LDL/fibrinogen – by a novel procedure using heparin. Other highlights are discussing the specificities of pediatric vs. adult brain trauma, or the evolving role of the Apolipoprotein-E e4 gene in severe head injury. An update is also provided on an online assessment of the patient management during the pre- and early hospital phase in Southern Bavaria. The empirical observation of neuroworsening is analyzed in further details, whether this is a specificity autonomously driving the posttraumatic course. Finally, the unsolved question why drug trials in severe head injury have failed so far in view of the promising evidence from the laboratory is subjected to an expert analysis.
