Neurometabolic Hereditary Diseases of Adults

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neurometabolic Hereditary Diseases of Adults
Jun 132018
 

This practical book describes only neurometabolic hereditary diseases which have a specific treatment and encourages the general neurologist to think of the most common neurometabolic hereditary diseases, which he might have seen and never considered in the differential diagnosis. Information regarding how to deal with diseases with special therapy is provided (i.e. enzymatic replacement therapy in Fabry disease and Pompe disease), as is information on diseases which are not easily recognized (i.e. Niemann-Pick disease type C), and diseases with clinical features mimicking other common neurodegenrative diseases (i.e. Wilson’s disease). Neurometabolic Hereditary Diseases is written with a clinical focus for adult neurologists working in general hospitals.

Application of Muscle/Nerve Stimulation in Health and Disease

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Application of Muscle/Nerve Stimulation in Health and Disease
Jun 132018
 

The first evidence that electrical changes can cause muscles to contract was p- vided by Galvani (1791). Galvani’s ideas about ‘animal electricity’ were explored during the 19th and 20th century when it was firmly established that ‘electricity’ is one of the most important mechanisms used for communication by the nervous system and muscle. These researches lead to the development of ever more soph- ticated equipment that could either record the electrical changes in nerves and muscles, or elicit functional changes by electrically stimulating these structures. It was indeed the combination of these two methods that elucidated many of the basic principles about the function of the nervous system. Following these exciting findings, it was discovered that electrical stimulation and the functions elicited by it also lead to long-term changes in the properties of nerves and particularly muscles. Recent findings help us to understand the mec- nisms by which activity induced by electrical stimulation can influence mature, fully differentiated cells, in particular muscles, blood vessels and nerves. Electrically elicited activity determines the properties of muscle fibres by activating a sequence of signalling pathways that change the gene expression of the muscle. Thus, elect- cal activity graduated from a simple mechanism that is used to elicit muscle c- traction, to a system that could induce permanent changes in muscles and modify most of its characteristic properties.

Neuroradiology – Expect the Unexpected

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology  Comments Off on Neuroradiology – Expect the Unexpected
Jun 112018
 


This book presents a selection of unusual neuroradiology cases, each documented with a short medical history, CT and MRI images, and one page with clinical features and radiological findings. A total of 25 rare and peculiar cases were selected from the authors’ clinical experience.
Over time, the authors witnessed several of these cases – for which there is little or no information in the international literature – being misinterpreted, especially by residents, general radiologists who occasionally have to deal with neuroradiology cases, or young neuroradiologists.
Written by experienced practitioners, this atlas, with its thoroughly documented collection of rare neuroradiological cases, represents a valuable clinical tool for young radiologists and will encourage them to “think outside the box” and successfully find the correct diagnosis

At Wit’s End : Plain Talk on Alzheimer’s for Families and Clinicians, Second Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on At Wit’s End : Plain Talk on Alzheimer’s for Families and Clinicians, Second Edition
Jun 112018
 

At Wit’s End is a straightforward summary of leading advice for caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease, written without technical jargon and impractical nuance. About 33 percent of the population eventually will provide care for someone with Alzheimer’s. The strain of caring for a loved one with this disease can be enormous, yet the reward of enhancing a loved one’s quality of life is beyond measure. So, where to begin? Many books delve into other specific areas of Alzheimer’s care, emphasizing the financial and legal challenges, as well as myriad medical treatment needs of those experiencing the disease. Unique among these offerings, At Wit’s End explains the psychiatric and psychological aspects of Alzheimer’s, and does so in a holistic and practical manner. Kraus focuses on the whole person across his or her full social, psychological, physical, and spiritual life to provide as complete a picture as possible of the changes that are in play. With this broad, thoughtful, and grounded approach, family members, clincians, and caregivers are better able to discover and make wise choices from a wealth of effective interventions in all areas of care. It also allows them to care for themselves and their families in the dynamic, supportive care process. Find out how Alzheimer’s can be distinguished from normal aging and other diseases that mimic its symptoms; how the disorder affects changes in functional abilities and how the daily competence of a person with Alzheimer’s is viewed by psychiatric and legal communities; how rational thinking is distorted, leading to a wide array of unusual and often uncharacteristic behaviors like agitation, impatience, wandering, and inappropriate expressions of sexuality; and what medical, psychiatric, and psychological treatments are available to help. At Wit’s End gives families, clinicians, and caregivers a new outlook on Alzheimer’s disease.

EEG Signal Analysis and Classification: Techniques and Applications

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on EEG Signal Analysis and Classification: Techniques and Applications
Jun 102018
 

This book presents advanced methodologies in two areas related to electroencephalogram (EEG) signals: detection of epileptic seizures and identification of mental states in brain computer interface (BCI) systems. The proposed methods enable the extraction of this vital information from EEG signals in order to accurately detect abnormalities revealed by the EEG. New methods will relieve the time-consuming and error-prone practices that are currently in use.
Common signal processing methodologies include wavelet transformation and Fourier transformation, but these methods are not capable of managing the size of EEG data.
Addressing the issue, this book examines new EEG signal analysis approaches with a combination of statistical techniques (e.g. random sampling, optimum allocation) and machine learning methods. The developed methods provide better results than the existing methods. The book also offers applications of the developed methodologies that have been tested on several real-time benchmark databases.
This book concludes with thoughts on the future of the field and anticipated research challenges. It gives new direction to the field of analysis and classification of EEG signals through these more efficient methodologies. Researchers and experts will benefit from its suggested improvements to the current computer-aided based diagnostic systems for the precise analysis and management of EEG signals.
