Feb 282018
 

Written by a Who’s Who of renowned spine surgeons, the third edition of Neurosurgical Atlas: Spine and Peripheral Nerves provides a detailed tutorial on the latest surgical procedures. The three comprehensive spine sections cover decompression modalities followed by fusion/instrumentation and fixation. Rounding out these sections are special topics such as vascular malformations in the spinal cord, stereotactic radiosurgery in the thoracic spine, and lumboperitoneal shunting. The peripheral nerves section includes treatment of conditions including carpal tunnel, brachial plexus, meralgia paresthetica, and cervical nerve root avulsion.

Throughout the book, the authors provide minimally invasive options and clinical pearls on patient selection, preoperative preparation, anesthesia, operative positioning, surgical methodologies, patient monitoring, and common complications.

Key Features

Anterior, posterior, transoral, and lateral approaches to the craniocervical junction, subaxial cervical spine; and operations specific to the cervicothoracic junction
Thoracic spine techniques for burst fractures, vertebral body metastasis, penetrating spine wounds, tumors, etc.
Lumbosacral spine approaches for herniation, degenerative disease with multiplanar deformity, spondylolisthesis, and more
Close to 700 illustrations and color photographs elucidate key concepts
Superb videos demonstrate hands-on techniques
This book is a must-have reference for neurosurgery residents seeking in-depth knowledge of spine and peripheral nerve procedures prior to scheduled cases. It will also benefit veteran neurosurgeons looking for clinical insights on infrequently performed surgeries.

Keyhole Approaches in Neurosurgery

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Keyhole Approaches in Neurosurgery
Feb 222018
 

Technological progress in neurosurgery – preoperative investigation of the exact anatomy of the patient, detailed planning of the procedure, and use of endoscopes and videosurgery – have made approaches for intracranial microsurgical procedures smaller compared to historically standard neurosurgical approaches. Building on the previous works “Endoscopic Anatomy for Neurosurgery” and “Keyhole Concept in Neurosurgery,” this book offers a systematic overview of keyhole approaches in the daily work of a neurosurgeon.

Transcriptional Regulation by Neuronal Activity: To the Nucleus and Back

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Transcriptional Regulation by Neuronal Activity: To the Nucleus and Back
Feb 222018
 

Regulation of gene transcription by neuronal activity is evident in a large number of neuronal processes ranging from neural development and refinement of neuronal connections to learning and response to injury. In the field of activity-dependent gene expression, rapid progress is being made that can impact these, and many other areas of neuroscience.

This book offers an up-to-date picture of the field.

Neurosciences – From Molecule to Behavior: a university textbook

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neurosciences – From Molecule to Behavior: a university textbook
Feb 212018
 

This textbook covers neuroscience from cellular and molecular mechanisms to behavior and cognitive processing. We also address evolution of the nervous system, computational neuroscience, the history of neuroscience as a discipline and neurophilosophy – to name but a few. The book provides the newest state-of-the-art knowledge about neuroscience from across the animal kingdom, with particular emphasis on model species commonly used in neuroscience labs across the world: mouse, zebra fish, fruit fly, honeybee, and nematode worm. We aim at university students of neuroscience, psychology, biological sciences, and medical sciences, but also computer scientists, philosophers, or anybody interested in understanding how brains work.

On the Other Hand: Left Hand, Right Brain, Mental Disorder, and History

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Psychiatry  Comments Off on On the Other Hand: Left Hand, Right Brain, Mental Disorder, and History
Feb 202018
 

Since the late Stone Age, approximately 10 percent of humans have been left-handed, yet for most of human history left-handedness has been stigmatized. In On the Other Hand, Howard I. Kushner traces the impact of left-handedness on human cognition, behavior, culture, and health.

A left-hander himself, Kushner has long been interested in the meanings associated with left-handedness, and ultimately with whether hand preference can even be defined in a significant way. As he explores the medical and cultural history of left-handedness, Kushner describes the associated taboos, rituals, and stigma from around the globe. The words “left” and “left hand” have negative connotations in all languages, and left-handers have even historically been viewed as disabled.

In this comprehensive history of left-handedness, Kushner asks why left-handedness exists. He examines the relationship—if any—between handedness, linguistics, and learning disabilities, reveals how toleration of left-handedness serves as a barometer of wider cultural toleration and permissiveness, and wonders why the reported number of left-handers is significantly lower in Asia and Africa than in the West. Written in a lively style that mixes personal biography with scholarly research, On the Other Hand tells a comprehensive story about the science, traditions, and prejudices surrounding left-handedness.

Research Methods in Psycholinguistics and the Neurobiology of Language

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Research Methods in Psycholinguistics and the Neurobiology of Language
Feb 202018
 

The first comprehensive guide to research methods and technologies in psycholinguistics and the neurobiology of language

Bringing together contributions from a distinguished group of researchers and practitioners, editors Annette M. B. de Groot and Peter Hagoort explore the methods and technologies used by researchers of language acquisition, language processing, and communication, including: traditional observational and behavioral methods; computational modelling; corpus linguistics; and virtual reality. The book also examines neurobiological methods, including functional and structural neuroimaging and molecular genetics.

Ideal for students engaged in the field, Research Methods in Psycholinguistics and the Neurobiology of Language examines the relative strengths and weaknesses of various methods in relation to competing approaches. It describes the apparatus involved, the nature of the stimuli and data used, and the data collection and analysis techniques for each method. Featuring numerous example studies, along with many full-color illustrations, this indispensable text will help readers gain a clear picture of the practices and tools described.

Review
“This important collection of chapters by leading researchers – ranging over methods from preferential looking to cutting-edge imaging to molecular genetics – will be an essential resource for researchers and students of language processing. The book provides an impressive overview and useful hands-on tips regarding the wide range of techniques used to investigate many aspects of language.” – David Poeppel, Max Planck Institute and New York University, USA

“The astouding proliferation of new research methodology during recent decades has deeply affected theoretical progress in psycolinguistics. This volume provides the first comprehensive guide to these methods, behavioural, neurobiological and computational. The editors, Annette de Groot and Peter Hagoort, not only managed to attract superb specialists for each and every chapter, they also convinced them to organise their chapters in similar ways, such providing a transparent, unified perspective. It makes for a most user-friendly guide, indispensable for any researcher in this indisciplinary field.” William Levelt, Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, USA
