Neuroimaging in Addiction

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neuroimaging in Addiction
Apr 072019
 

Neuroimaging in Addiction presents an up-to-date, comprehensive review of the functional and structural imaging human studies that have greatly advanced our understanding of this complex disorder.
Approaching addiction from a conceptual rather than a substance-specific perspective, this book integrates broad neuropsychological constructs that consider addiction as a neuroplastic process with genetic, developmental, and substance-induced contributions.

The internationally recognized contributors to this volume are leaders in clinical imaging with expertise that spans the addiction spectrum.

Following a general introduction, an overview of neural circuitry and modern non-invasive imaging techniques provides the framework for subsequent chapters on reward salience, craving, stress, impulsivity and cognition. Additional topics include the use of neuroimaging for the assessment of acute drug effects, drug-induced neurotoxicity, non-substance addictive behaviors, and the application of imaging genetics to identify unique intermediate phenotypes. The book concludes with an exploration of the future promise for functional imaging as guide to the diagnosis and treatment of addictive disorders.

Scientists and clinicians will find the material in this volume invaluable in their work towards understanding the addicted brain, with the overall goal of improved prevention and treatment outcomes for patients.

The Clinical Anatomy of the Cranial Nerves: The Nerves of “On Old Olympus Towering Top”

 Anatomy, Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Clinical Anatomy of the Cranial Nerves: The Nerves of “On Old Olympus Towering Top”
Mar 302019
 

The cranial nerves are an endlessly fascinating family of twelve nerves that have a dramatic impact on our daily lives. A dysfunction of the cranial nerves can cause loss of vision or double vision, loss of smell, poor balance, or loss of muscle function, and can also be an indicator of underlying neurological disorders. The Clinical Anatomy of the Cranial Nerves: The Nerves of “On Old Olympus Towering Top” is an engaging and accessible book on the anatomy and clinical importance of these unique nerves.

The text opens with a brief introduction of key neuroanatomical concepts that relate the clinical and anatomical sections that follow. Additionally, this book uniquely provides a detailed description of the bones of the head and face in order for the reader to understand the routes taken by the cranial nerves through the skull. Chapters then detail each nerve and its unique impact in relationship to our senses, motor function, and health. Vividly illustrated and supported by real-life clinical cases, the book will appeal to anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of the cranial nerves.

Merging anatomical and clinical information with intriguing clinical cases, The Clinical Anatomy of the Cranial Nerves: The Nerves of “On Old Olympus Towering Top” introduces readers to the anatomy and diverse function of this intriguing family of nerves.

Neural Tube Defects: Prevalence, Pathogenesis and Prevention

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Pathology  Comments Off on Neural Tube Defects: Prevalence, Pathogenesis and Prevention
Mar 302019
 

 

Neural Tube Defects (NTDs) are congenital malformations of the central nervous system caused by partial or complete failure of the neural tube to close, within 28 days of conception. They represent the second most frequent cause of congenital abnormality. In this book, the authors discuss the prevalence, pathogenesis and prevention of neural tube defects. Topics include preconception folic acid as a primary prevention tool for NTD and its risk assessment; understanding and preventing folic acid-resistant neural tube defects; knowledge of the cellular mechanisms responsible for normal neural tube formation in comprehending and preventing NTDs; developmental delay in interneuron, motor neuron, sensory tract, and synapse formation in chick spina bifida; and an examination of whether neural tube defects lead to structural alterations in the urinary and genital organs in human fetuses.

Intensive Care in Neurology and Neurosurgery: Pathophysiological Basis for the Management of Acute Cerebral Injury

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Intensive Care in Neurology and Neurosurgery: Pathophysiological Basis for the Management of Acute Cerebral Injury
Mar 282019
 

Neuromonitoring is a tool of the trade in intensive care, and should incorporate cutting-edge technology with patience, repeated clinical observation, and careful identification of neuroworsening. The aim of the book is to be of practical use, and to assist the clinical practice of the busy physician. The clinical examination is the introductory section of the book, and an abundance of technology, with specific emphasis on the importance of intracranial pressure, follows. Since the patient with an injured brain can survive only if other organs and systems (such as the lungs, the acid-base equilibrium, etc.) are preserved, a section of the book covers the interactions between the affected brain and other organs. The intracranial pressure measurement starts (or unfortunately ends) with a well-maintained catheter, which becomes vital when the drainage of hydrocephalus is involved. Dealing with patients with severe brain damage has plenty of ethical implications, up to and including the problems related to brain death and organ donation.
