Oxford American Pocket Notes Post Herpetic Neuralgia

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Oxford American Pocket Notes Post Herpetic Neuralgia
Oct 132018
 

Postherpetic Neuralgia (PHN) is one of the two most common neuropathic pain disorders (the other is diabetic neuropathy), which in turn is a common type of chronic pain syndrome. The prevalence of neuropathic pain in the United States has been estimated at almost 3.8 million and PHN may account for as many as one million in these cases. PHN is a chronic pain disorder associated wtih skin eruptions due to the varicella zoster virus (VZV), known as shingles or zoster, usually occurring in adults. The primary infection with the VZV, mostly in childhood, produces chicken pox (varicella). Following the initial infection, the virus remains latent in the body until it is reactivated, producing the shingles rash. Shingles is characterized by painful, grouped skin lesions, most commonly on the trunk or face. The eruption is the most distinctive feature, but frequently, the most debilitating symptom is pain. Once the acute phase and its usual rash have healed, lingering or new onset pain can occur and is referred to as postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). Although the duration of pain symptoms in PHN generally does not exceed three months, a significant proportion of patients (up to 20% of those with PHN over the age of 50, and up to 50% in those over age 70) develop chronic pain lasting more than one year. In some patients, the pain may persist indefinitely, if not properly treated. Damage from the VZV can lead to persistent severe neuralgia, facial, or other nerve paralysis, blindness or other visual impairments, and encephalitis. The impact of pain on quality of life may be severe with chronic fatigue, anorexia, weight loss, physical inactivity, insomnia, and depression. Part of the new Oxford American Pocket Notes series, this ultra concise guide presents a brief overview of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of postherpetic neuralgia. Uniquely compact and affordable, the guide covers the use of antivirals and vaccines in preventing PHN, as well as treatment options once PHN occurs, including both pharmacological (oral, parenteral, and topical agents) and non-pharmacological therapies. In addition, the book provides actual pain assessment tools, such as the Short-Form McGill Questionnaire, and the Zoter Brief Pain Inventory, ready for practical use in the clinical setting

Neuropsychology of Children in Africa: Perspectives on Risk and Resilience

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neuropsychology of Children in Africa: Perspectives on Risk and Resilience
Oct 122018
 

Increasingly, global humanitarian efforts are focusing on improving the lives of children. And among the developing world, the African nations are particularly affected by extreme weather conditions, devastating pandemics, and armed conflict. Neurocognitive science offers significant avenues toward bringing needed aid to the continent while creating a template for helping children worldwide.

The studies in Neuropsychology of Children in Africa clearly illustrate how the brain develops and adjusts in the face of adversity. Contributors span assessment approaches and public health risk factors, and represent established topics and emerging lines of research, including biocultural constructs and genomic technologies. Together, these chapters argue for methodology that is culturally sensitive, scientifically rigorous, consistent, and sustainable. And although the focus is pediatric, the book takes a lifespan approach to prevention and intervention, modeling a universal framework for understanding neurocognitive development. Included in the coverage:

Assessment of very young children in Africa in the context of HIV.
Psychosocial aspects of malnutrition among African children.
Assessment of neuropsychological outcomes in pediatric severe malaria.
Neurodisability screening using the Ten Questions questionnaire.
The neuropsychology of sickle cell disease in West African children.
Computerized Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy for African children.

Introduction to Neuromarketing & Consumer Neuroscience

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Introduction to Neuromarketing & Consumer Neuroscience
Oct 032018
 

How do we make decisions on what to buy and what to pay for it? Why are we affected by brands and pricing when making our choices or just experiencing something? Traditional approaches to such questions have relied on the behavioural and social sciences. However, today we see a dramatic shift in our understanding of consumption behaviours. Recent advances in modern neuroscience, and how it combines with economics and psychology, have allowed us to study of how different brain functions serve consumer behaviour. A commercial industry is emerging that offers novel ways to assess consumer attention, emotion and memory. This book, written by one of the leading figures in neuromarketing and consumer neuroscience, offers a comprehensive insight into the workings of the brain and its mind, and how this knowledge can inform our understanding of consumption behaviours. The book offers both basic and front-end academic insights, and includes chapters on sensation and perception; attention and consciousness; emotion and feeling; memory and learning; motivation and preference; and decision making. It also offers up to date and comprehensive insight about how the tools of neuroscience can be applied to assess consumer cognition and emotion. This book works as a landmark for this emerging academic and commercial disciplines, and to become a standard book of reference, just as the textbooks by Kotler and Keller have been for advertising and marketing.

Perinatal Brain Damage – From Pathogenesis to Neuroprotection

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Pathology  Comments Off on Perinatal Brain Damage – From Pathogenesis to Neuroprotection
Oct 032018
 

This volume is based on a highly successful conference dedicated to Perinatal brain damage:from pathogenesis to neuroprotection . Neonatologists, paediatricians, paediatric neurologists, obstetricians, basic researchers involved in neurosciences, as well as rehabilitation professionals, will be interested by this ensuing publication.The volume covers pathogenic aspects of brain lesions occurring in the fetal and neonatal period, and addresses the issues of diagnostic workup and treatment.The most authoritative basic researchers, clinicians, and specialists in the field of neuroimaging, provide chapters on recent clinical advances. A subject of particular importance is the neurological vulnerability of the preterm infant, which also touches on ethical aspects of the care of high-risk preterm babies and those born from multiple pregnancies. A particularly original session focuses on cerebral white matter and the many issues related to this crucial part of the developing brain. Experts also deal with cerebral visual impairment, motor development, cognitive function, and the mechanisms underlying the neuronal plasticity of the infant s brain. Concepts of neuroprotection are also outlined, based on pharmacological agents tested on experimental animals and the best drugs used to treat neonatal convulsions
