The Exercise Effect on Mental Health: Neurobiological Mechanisms

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Exercise Effect on Mental Health: Neurobiological Mechanisms
Jul 052018
 

The Exercise Effect on Mental Health contains the most recent and thorough overview of the links between exercise and mental health, and the underlying mechanisms of the brain. The text will enhance interested clinicians’ and researchers’ understanding of the neurobiological effect of exercise on mental health. Editors Budde and Wegner have compiled a comprehensive review of the ways in which physical activity impacts the neurobiological mechanisms of the most common psychological and psychiatric disorders, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. This text presents a rigorously evidence-based case for exercise as an inexpensive, time-saving, and highly effective treatment for those suffering from mental illness and distress.

Neurology Image-Based Clinical Review

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology  Comments Off on Neurology Image-Based Clinical Review
Jul 022018
 

Neuroimaging has become an integral part of clinical neurology practice in tandem with good history taking and physical examination. This is the first all-in-one guide, presenting illustrative examples of signature neuroimaging findings in clinical context specifically for neurologists. With more than 1,500 images, the authors have assembled an accessible resource and review that presents over 170 core topics using the imaging findings as a platform to discuss pathophysiology, clinical presentation, and disease management. Written with the practitioner or student of neurology in mind, Neurology Image-Based Clinical Review profiles each condition in an easy-to-read format, alongside a wealth of images designed to help develop proficiency in recognizing and treating both common and rare neurologic conditions.

This unique book is organized into fifteen chapters covering all major areas of neurology including stroke, hemorrhage, neoplasms, epilepsy, trauma, neurodegenerative conditions, infectious diseases, pediatric syndromes, and much more. Each topic is introduced with a brief case scenario and image-based diagnosis, followed by bulleted introduction, clinical presentation, radiographic appearance and diagnostic hallmarks, differential diagnosis, and treatment. Numerous examples throughout foster familiarity with key imaging findings and boost confidence interpreting MRI, CT, MRA, angiography, EEG, gross, and microscopic neuropathology images. Selected references for further study follow each topic.

Neurology Image-Based Clinical Review is an essential reference for practicing neurologists, students, and residents looking to hone their knowledge, or anyone sharpening clinical and interpretive skills for board or MOC review.

Key Features:

Comes with free access to the fully-searchable downloadable e-book, including an image bank
Covers the full spectrum of neurologic disease with over 170 topics and more than 1,500 images
Includes chapters on commonly encountered problems and rare syndromes that may be missed in the clinic
Presents the latest information on clinical presentation, diagnosis, treatment, and differential diagnoses of various neurological disorders
Consistent format for easy readability and targeted review

Electric Fields of the Brain: The Neurophysics of EEG, 2nd Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Electric Fields of the Brain: The Neurophysics of EEG, 2nd Edition
Jun 272018
 


Electroencephalography (EEG) is practiced by neurologists, cognitive neuroscientists, and others interested in functional brain imaging. Whether for clinical or experimental purposes, all studies share a common purpose-to relate scalp potentials to the underlying neurophysiology. Electrical potentials on the scalp exhibit spatial and temporal patterns that depend on the nature and location of the sources and the way that currents and fields spread through tissue. Because these dynamic patterns are correlated with behavior and cognition, EEG provides a “window on the mind,” correlating physiology and psychology.
This classic and widely acclaimed text, originally published in 1981, filled the large gap between EEG and the physical sciences. It has now been brought completely up to date and will again serve as an invaluable resource for understanding the principles of electric fields in living tissue and for using hard science to study human consciousness and cognition. No comparable volume exists for it is no easy task to explain the problems of EEG in clear language, with mathematics presented mainly in appendices. Among the many topics covered by the Second Edition are micro and meso (intermediate scale) synaptic sources, electrode placement, choice of reference, volume conduction, power and coherence measures, projection of scalp potentials to dura surface, dynamic signatures of conscious experience, neural networks immersed in global fields of synaptic action, and physiological bases for brain source dynamics. The Second Edition is an invaluable resource for neurologists, neuroscientists (especially cognitive neuroscientists), biomedical engineers, and their students and trainees. It will also appeal to physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists, psychiatrists, and industrial engineers interested in EEG.

Brain Stimulation: Methodologies and Interventions

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Brain Stimulation: Methodologies and Interventions
Jun 252018
 

Brain stimulation technologies are both tools to probe brain function and to provide therapeutic options for patients with neuropsychiatric disease where pharmacological options are not viable. Although the field has been in existence for over seventy years, research interest in brain stimulation has been on the rise particularly in the last two decades.
Brain Stimulation: Methodologies and Interventions is an introduction to the field of brain stimulation technology and its applications. The book explores how brainstimulating technologies work in the context of brain pathways that mediate normal and abnormal brain function. Chapters cover neuroanatomy and activity dependent changes in neuronal function triggered by brain stimulation, as well as applications of brain stimulation technologies themselves, including noninvasive procedures that rely on convulsive or seizure therapeutics, and non-convulsive therapies such as magnetic and electrical brain stimulation.

Authored by an international group of leaders in the field, Brain Stimulation is a valuable resource for both neuroscience researchers and clinicians.
