The Oxford Handbook of Cultural Neuroscience

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Oxford Handbook of Cultural Neuroscience
Aug 172018
 


This Handbook examines disparities in public health by highlighting recent theoretical and methodological advances in cultural neuroscience. It traces the interactions of cultural, biological, and environmental factors that create adverse physical and mental health conditions among populations, and investigates how the policies of cultural and governmental institutions influence such outcomes. In addition to providing an overview of the current research, chapters demonstrate how a cultural neuroscience approach to the study of the mind, brain, and behavior can help stabilize the quality of health of societies at large. The volume will appeal especially to graduate students and professional scholars working in psychology and population genetics.

The Oxford Handbook of Cultural Neuroscience represents the first collection of scholarly contributions from the International Cultural Neuroscience Consortium (ICNC), an interdisciplinary group of scholars from epidemiology, anthropology, psychology, neuroscience, genetics, and psychiatry dedicated to advancing an understanding of culture and health using theory and methods from cultural neuroscience. The Handbook is intended to introduce future generations of scholars to foundations in cultural neuroscience, and to equip them to address the grand challenges in global mental health in the twenty-first century.

The Neurological Emergence of Epilepsy: The National Hospital for the Paralysed and Epileptic (1870-1895)

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Neurological Emergence of Epilepsy: The National Hospital for the Paralysed and Epileptic (1870-1895)
Aug 172018
 

This book explores the emergence of epilepsy as a purely neurological disorder, in the second half of the nineteenth century. It focuses on the world’s first neurological hospital, the National Hospital for the Paralysed and Epileptic in London, and on its leading figure, John Hughlings Jackson (1835-1911). Through an analysis of the National Hospital’s medical records and a historical account of the course of epilepsy until our time, this book presents the nineteenth-century turn towards the scientific study of the human brain and the various political, social, ideological and epistemological implications of this major change. In spite of the recent trend of describing the history of mental illness, mental patients and psychiatric institutions, so far, neurology, epilepsy and epileptic patients have largely remained outside the scope of social historians, historians of medicine and social scientists. This book has the ambition to fill that gap. ​

The Unmapped Mind: A Memoir of Neurology, Incurable Disease and Learning How to Live

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Unmapped Mind: A Memoir of Neurology, Incurable Disease and Learning How to Live
Aug 162018
 

“My daughter took her first steps on the day I was diagnosed – a juxtaposition so perfect, so trite, so filled with the tacky artifice of real life that I am generally too embarrassed to tell anybody about it.”

Shortly after his daughter Leontine was born, Christian Donlan’s world shifted an inch to the left. He started to miss light switches and door handles when reachingfor them. He would injure himself in a hundred stupid ways every day. First playful and then maddening, these strange experiences were the early symptoms of multiple sclerosis, an incurable and degenerative neurological disease.

Ashis young daughter starts to investigate the world around her, he too finds himself exploring a new landscape – the shifting and bewildering territory ofthe brain. He is a tourist in his own body, a stranger in a place that plays bizarre tricks on him, from dizzying double vision to mystifying memory loss. Determined to master his new environment, Christian takes us on a fascinating and illuminating journey: through the history of neurology, the joys andanxieties of parenthood, and the ultimate realisation of what, after everything you take for granted has been stripped away from you, is truly important in life.

An Unmapped Mind is a profoundly personal, uplifting and enriching memoir that will change the way you see your body, your mind, and the world around you.

Pediatric Neurology (What Do I Do Now?)

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Pediatric Neurology (What Do I Do Now?)
Aug 142018
 

What do I do now? Pediatric patients with neurological symptoms or problems pose many clinical challenges and even experienced clinicians occasionally arrive at the point where diagnostic, work-up, treatment, or prognostic thinking becomes blocked. From time to time, children are brought into the pediatrician’s office with puzzling neurological symptoms—breath holding spells, refusal to walk, infantile spasms, skin lesions, floppy or absent reflexes—that leave their doctors wondering “what do I do now?” Pediatric Neurology serves the need for a quick reference tool to address these perplexing pediatric neurological symptoms and disorders. Dr. Gregory L. Holmes, Department Chair and Professor of Pediatrics and Neurology at Dartmouth Medical School, presents 28 representative cases of both common and rare pediatric neurological problems and diseases including but not limited to: Dopamine Responsive Dystonia, Fragile X Syndrome, Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy and Rett Syndrome. The bedside consultation presentation of the cases encourages the reader, whether she or he be a pediatrician, primary care practitioner or medical student, to formulate a differential diagnosis and treatment plan for a wide variety of pediatric neurological problems and diseases.

Antiepileptic drugs are among the most commonly prescribed medications by both neurologists and psychiatrists, as they exert a number of effects which extend far beyond their anticonvulsant properties. There is growing evidence that each antiepileptic drug is characterised by a specific behavioural profile. Behavioural Neurology of Antiepileptic Drugs: A Practical Guide offers a user-friendly guide to the use of antiepileptic drugs and their behavioural effects on patients with epilepsy and primary psychiatric conditions.

Written over 18 chapters, this practical handbook guides the reader through the breadth of medications used in modern epilepsy and psychiatry practice alphabetically, including information on each drug’s indications, contra-indications, side-effects, and important interactions. This resource covers practical information on prescribing and monitoring to ensure the reader has the most up-to-date evidence-based guidance at their fingertips, and diagrams are used throughout to aid visual learning.

With up-to-date content and a practical approach, Behavioural Neurology of Antiepileptic Drugs: A Practical Guide is an invaluable resource for consultants and trainees in neurology, psychiatry, and neuropsychiatry, as well as to pharmacists and specialist epilepsy nurses.

Handbook of Stress Medicine and Health

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Handbook of Stress Medicine and Health
Aug 082018
 

Research now shows us that long-term activation of the stress cycle can have a hazardous, even lethal, effect on the body, increasing the risk of obesity, heart disease, depression, cancer, and other illnesses. This new edition of an award-winning book presents cutting-edge research on the effects of stress.
Edited by one of the world’s authorities in stress management, occupational psychology, and occupational medicine, Handbook of Stress Medicine and Health, Second Edition offers a completely revised and updated look at the different types of stress, including their characteristics, symptoms, duration, and treatment approaches. The text proposes a generic theory on stress and health and explores the relationship of stress to a variety of health outcomes, including heart disease, cancer, mental health, burnout, and complications of the endocrine and immune systems. It addresses the link between stress and personality, and discusses the impact of social support on various health conditions. The final chapters deal with stress and its consequences, such as the emotional processing of traumatic events, dealing with stress in families and in chronic disease, and coping with stress in the workplace.
With contributions from the foremost leaders in the field, this authoritative book evaluates a wide range of psychosocial factors that contribute to many of today’s major illnesses. It also proposes strategies for prevention and management, which will hopefully encourage future research into the reduction of stress.
