Genetic Neuromuscular Disorders: A Case-Based Approach

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Genetic Neuromuscular Disorders: A Case-Based Approach
Oct 092019
 


This book describes the genetic diagnostic entities of neuromuscular disorders. Each neuromuscular syndrome is presented clinically as a case study, accompanied by text reviewing different molecular defects, DNA research and differential diagnosis.

This collection of neuromuscular disorders features the different clinical phenotypes related to each genotype and are representative of the whole spectrum of a genetic muscle disorder, helping the clinician and neuromuscular physician to make a diagnosis. Key points for each genetic disease are identified to suggest treatment, when available, or the main clinical exams useful in follow-up of patients.

Genetic Neuromuscular Disorders: A Case-Based Approach is aimed at neuromuscular physicians and neurology residents.

Evolution of the Central Nervous System of Craniata and Homo

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Evolution of the Central Nervous System of Craniata and Homo
Oct 082019
 

The main focus of this book is on providing students, neurosurgery trainees, certified neurosurgeons and colleagues in neighbouring disciplines essential information on the evolution of the central nervous system (CNS) of craniata and homo. Therefore the book is divided in three parts: Part I is describing the evolution of CNS of craniata (starting 800 million of years ago). Part II is explaining in detail the exceptional position of the human encephalon. Part III is discussing maturity and immaturity of all parts of CNS of craniatas and the consequences concerning further development of brain structure and psychological functions. In all parts anatomical fundamentals are presented in the form of didactic and self-explanatory illustrations.

Fractured Minds: A Case-Study Approach to Clinical Neuropsychology

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Fractured Minds: A Case-Study Approach to Clinical Neuropsychology
Oct 082019
 


Fractured Minds introduces the reader to clinical neuropsychology through vivid case descriptions of adults who have suffered brain damage. At one level, this is a book about the courage, humor, and determination to triumph over illness and disability that many “ordinary people” demonstrate when coping with the extraordinary stress of a brain disorder. On another level, it is a well-referenced and up-to-date textbook that provides a holistic view of the practice of clinical neuropsychology. Included are reader-friendly descriptions and explanations of a wide range of neurological disorders and neuroscientific concepts. Two introductory chapters are followed by 17 chapters that each focus on a specific disorder and include research, clinical assessment, rehabilitation, and a detailed case study. Disorders range across the full spectrum from common ones such as traumatic brain injury and dementia, to rare disorders such as autotopagnosia. Each of the 16 chapters retained from the first edition has been revised to reflect current research and clinical advances. Three new chapters on multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and Huntington’s disease incorporate discussion of important current topics such as genetically-transmitted diseases, genetic counseling, gene transplantation, functional neurosurgery, and the complex ethical issues that go hand-in-hand with these new techniques. This informative and engaging book will be of interest to students of clinical psychology, neuropsychology, and neurology, health professionals who work with neurological patients, neurological patients and their families, and lay readers who are simply fascinated by the mind and brain.

 Histology, Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology  Comments Off on Imaging of Brain Tumors with Histological Correlations Edition 2
Oct 062019
 

This volume provides a deeper understanding of the diagnosis of brain tumors by correlating radiographic imaging features with the underlying pathological abnormalities. All modern imaging modalities are used to complete a diagnostic overview of brain tumors with emphasis on recent advances in diagnostic neuroradiology. High-quality illustrations depicting common and uncommon imaging characteristics of a wide range of brain tumors are presented and analysed, drawing attention to the ways in which these characteristics reflect different aspects of pathology. Important theoretical considerations are also discussed. Since the first edition, chapters have been revised and updated and new material has been added, including detailed information on the clinical application of functional MRI and diffusion tensor imaging. Radiologists and other clinicians interested in the current diagnostic approach to brain tumors will find this book to be an invaluable and enlightening clinical tool.

Brain Control of Wakefulness and Sleep

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Brain Control of Wakefulness and Sleep
Oct 052019
 

Steriade and McCarley have done a sterling job of bringing together much of what is relevant (and some of what is not) into a present-day light…The book is rich in references and leaves no aspect of the problem untouched. The morphological, pharmacological, physiological and mathematical modeling aspects of different components of the subject are treated to exhaustion…the book is richly illustrated and down-right comprehensive. It will delight those interested in the field, will inform those who need a context for their research efforts and is a must for graduate and medical libraries.

Introduction to Brain Topography

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Introduction to Brain Topography
Oct 052019
 

It had been difficult to find appropriate teaching material for students and newcomers to this field of brain electromagnetic topography. In part, this is due to the many disciplines involved, requiring some knowledge of the physical sciences, mathematics, neurophysiology and anatomy.
It is my hope that this book will be found suitable for introducing interested workers to this exciting field. Advanced topics will not be covered, as there are many excellent texts available. Peter K.H. Wong vii ACKNOWLEDGEMENT My co-authors, Hal Weinberg and Roberto Bencivenga, for their support; Richard Hamer, for all his early advice; Ernst Rodin and Gene Ramsay, for their encouragement; Wendy Cummings for her assistance; Technologists from the Department of Diagnostic Neurophysiology for collecting such excellent data; Bio-Logic Systems Corp. for permission to use some data as illustration; and all my friends and colleagues.

Pharmacology of Neurotransmitter Release

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Pharmacology  Comments Off on Pharmacology of Neurotransmitter Release
Oct 032019
 

It has been known for half a century that neurotransmitters are released in preformed quanta, that the quanta represent transmitter-storing vesicles, and that release occurs by exocytosis. The focus of this book is twofold. In the first part, the molecular events of exocytosis are analysed. In the second part of the book, the presynaptic receptors for endogenous chemical signals are presented that make neurotransmitter release a highly regulated process.
