The Neurologic Diagnosis: A Practical Bedside Approach, 2nd edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Neurologic Diagnosis: A Practical Bedside Approach, 2nd edition
Dec 272018
 

An introductory text that transitions into a moderately advanced, case-based analysis of neurologic disorders and diseases, this book emphasizes how to simplify the process of making a neurologic diagnosis. Medical students and residents are often intimidated by a deluge of data, perception of anatomic complexity, extensive differential diagnoses, and often have no organized structure to follow. Diagnostic methods of general medicine are not applicable. Indeed, neurology is a unique specialty since it requires the intermediary step of an anatomic diagnosis prior to proffering a differential diagnosis. Yet the required knowledge of neuroanatomy need not be profound for the student or resident who will not specialize in neurology or neurosurgery. The Neurologic Diagnosis: A Practical Bedside Approach, 2nd Edition is primarily directed to neurology and neurosurgery residents but it will be useful for medical and family practice residents who will discover that a great percentage of their patients have neurologic symptoms. A one-month neurology rotation out of four years of medical school is not sufficient to make a cogent neurologic diagnosis. The aim of this concise, practical book – which includes an in-depth video of how to perform a neurologic examination – is to facilitate the process of establishing a neuroanatomic diagnosis followed by a rigorous analysis of symptoms and signs to reach a well-thought out differential diagnosis. Focused and succinct, this book is an invaluable resource for making a lucid neurologic diagnosis.

Handbook of Sport Neuroscience and Psychophysiology

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Handbook of Sport Neuroscience and Psychophysiology
Dec 212018
 

Out of the broad arena of sport science and sport psychology, Roland A. Carlstedt presents a comprehensive collection on the neuroscience and associated psychophysiology that underlies and drives sport performance. Featuring sections ranging from the basics and foundations (anatomy and physiology) to the applied (assessment during competition, training, and mental training), Handbook of Sport Neuroscience and Psychophysiology is the first volume to provide students, researchers, practitioners, and coaches the latest knowledge on the brain, mind-body processes, and psychophysiological responding in the context of sport performance

Review
‘The Handbook of Sport Neuroscience and Psychophysiology is a great source for learning more about the brain, and how it can be optimized for both performance and recovery. Emphasizing ecological approaches that have gained widespread use in the high-performance training culture, the authors convey how the core principles of neuroscience/social neuroscience, psychophysiology, and biofeedback can help athletes and coaches optimize training, performance, and rehabilitation, each by understanding how the human brain has evolved to optimize skill performance, cope with expected and unexpected challenges, and remain robust to injuries and defeats through biologically-mediated healing and recovery. Understanding these systems will help athletes of all levels learn how to leverage them most effectively. Whether you are seeking an introduction to the neuropsychology of sports or a primer on the brain, this handbook is a well-written, well-curated new resource for the community.’- Justin Baker, MD, PhD, Scientific Director, Institute for Technology in Psychiatry, McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School

‘The Handbook of Sport Neuroscience and Psychophysiology combines the latest theory, research, and practical insights in this rapidly evolving space. The breadth of topics covered by the team of renowned experts, led by Dr. Roland A. Carlstedt and Dr. Michela Balconi, represents a landmark contribution to the field. While not sacrificing scientific rigor, the book is accessible and relevant not only to clinicians and scientists but also students, coaches, and athletes. From the most recent advances utilizing digital technologies to the fundamental theories grounding the field of sport neuroscience and psychophysiology, this book offers unrivaled access and information.’ – John Torous, MD, MBI, Director of the Division of Digital Psychiatry, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School

‘Elegantly written, the Handbook of Sport Neuroscience and Psychophysiology takes on a journey through the neural pathways of sport. Using the advanced technology, including neuroimaging, EEG, bio and neurofeedback, the authors probe deep into our brains and map out our electrophysiological and hemodynamic responses during sport activity and physical exercise. This is a must-read for clinicians, researchers, instructors, students, athletes, and coaches. It is a seminal reference for how the brain works in the context of sport and evidence-based, biomarker approaches to assessing and enhancing athletic performance as well as the clinical neuroscience of exercise and brain concussion. Welcome to the present and future of sport neuroscience.’ – Philippe Douyon, MD, Assistant Professor of Neurology, Seton Hall-Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine; Founder and CEO of The Inle BrainFit Institute

‘Expanding on his own seminal studies of professional athletes, Dr. Roland A. Carlstedt, together with Dr. Michela Balconi, recruited prominent contemporary researchers and practitioners to produce the first comprehensive handbook offering both applied and theoretical perspectives on the neuroscience and psychophysiology of sport performance―a pioneering contribution…’ – Auke Tellegen, PhD, Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychology, University of Minnesota

‘In this cutting-edge book, Dr. Roland A. Carlstedt has assembled a blue-ribbon collection of international authors to present the state of the art in sport neuroscience and psychophysiology. Did you know that “motor imagery” can now be imaged using creative experimental paradigms and sophisticated brain imaging technology? Or that teams seem to produce a “group mind” that can be quantified using “mind-body” measures or that heart rate deceleration during pre-action phases of competition appears to be a biomarker of being In-the-Zone? These and many other questions are addressed and answered in this comprehensive handbook, making it a must-read for students, clinicians, sport psychologists, coaches and athletes. It is an excellent reference and the go-to textbook for college courses in sport neuroscience and psychophysiology (that I think will proliferate because of this book).’ – Stanley Krippner, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Saybrook University, American Board of Sport Psychology

‘The Handbook of Sport Neuroscience and Psychophysiology is an invaluable resource for sport psychologists. It will also be of interest to practitioners in sports medicine as well as coaches and athletes. The book presents readers with seminal research and evidence-based approaches to athlete assessment and mental training. As a former tennis professional, I appreciate how this book can also benefit competitive athletes by exposing them to advanced procedures and analytics. This is a landmark book that will have a major impact in a number of fields that focus on sports and athletes and beyond.’ – Clifford Stark, DO, Clinical Director, Sports Medicine at Chelsea, New York City; Director, Northwell Health Plainview

Principles of Neuropsychological Rehabilitation

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Principles of Neuropsychological Rehabilitation
Dec 192018
 

Without guiding principles, clinicians can easily get lost in the maze of problems that a brain-damaged patient presents. This book underlines the importance of patients’ subjective experience of brain disease or injury, and the frustration and confusion they undergo. It shows that the symptom picture is a mixture of premorbid cognitive and personal characteristics with the neuropsychological changes directly associated with brain pathology. By closely observing the patient’s behavior, the clinician can teach him or her about the direct and indirect effects of brain damage. The book provides guidelines both for the remediation of higher cerebral disturbances and the management of patients interpersonal problems. It presents a new perspective on disorders of self-awareness and recovery as well as deterioration phenomena after brain injury. It will be an invaluable resource for psychologists, neurologists, and psychiatrists involved in neuropsychological rehabilitation.

Alzheimer’s Disease: Targets for New Clinical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Strategies

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Alzheimer’s Disease: Targets for New Clinical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Strategies
Dec 132018
 

In recent years, a tremendous amount of effort has been focused on better understanding the fundamentals of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) to facilitate early and accurate diagnosis and appropriately targeted therapeutic treatments. Alzheimer’s Disease: Targets for New Clinical, Diagnostic, and Therapeutic Strategies provides a detailed synopsis of the current state of the art of diagnostics and therapeutics and identifies emerging technologies and molecules that show promise in the management and treatment of AD.

With contributions from experts drawn from academia, clinical practice, and the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, the book explores:
• The basis of AD and the role of Aβ oligomers in development of disease
• Existing and emerging in vitro biomarker-based methodologies for the diagnosis of AD, focusing on genetic, biochemical, and conformational strategies
• In vivo imaging diagnostic approaches
• Evolving diagnostic criteria, health regulatory guidelines, biomarkers in clinical trials, and available and emerging therapies
• Recent progress in small-molecule disease-modifier drug discovery efforts for AD, specifically in the areas of Aβ, tau, and emerging neuroprotective/neurorepair approaches
• How a case study of AD raises issues regarding clinical and pathologic criteria, risk factors, and the amyloid hypothesis
• The molecular conformational factors that govern the pathogenicity of aggregating proteins, and how these factors could represent new targets for disease-modifying therapies
• The latest epidemiological, pathological, biochemical, and behavioral studies that may shed some light on the risk of developing AD and similar dementias after traumatic brain injury
Examining current hypotheses and suggesting possible new approaches to therapeutic clinical applications, this volume paves the way for a robust pipeline of therapeutics to combat not only AD, but a whole host of other neurodegenerative diseases.
