In Vivo Neuropharmacology and Neurophysiology (Neuromethods)

This volume presents classical approaches to in vivo neuropharmacology and neurophysiology, such as c-fos, electrochemistry, microdialysis microstimulation, and push-up superfusion. It also explores exciting new methods for behavioral analysis, and techniques based on optogenetics and non-invasive magnetic resonance imaging. The chapters of this book cover topics such as principles of stereotaxy, pharmaco-based fMRI and neurophysiology in humans and non-human primates, electrical nerve stimulation and central microstimulation, involvement of neurotransmitters in mnemonic processes, the impact of cannabinoids on motor activity, as well as the involvement of nitric oxide in neurotoxicity produced by psychostimulant drugs. Each chapter also discusses difficulties, tips, tricks, and precautions to take. Neuromethods series style chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your own laboratory.

Cutting-edge and practical, In Vivo Neuropharmacology and Neurophysiology is a valuable resource for experienced and less experienced investigators of brain function and brain disorders.

Affective Touch and the Neurophysiology of CT Afferents

CT afferents are receptors in mammalian hairy skin that fire action potentials when the skin is touched lightly which makes them particularly important in affective touch.  Traditionally neuroscientific research has focused on more discriminative and haptic properties of touch that are mediated by large myelinated afferents and the coding properties and functional organization of unmyelinated CT afferents have been studied much less.  The proposed volume will draw together existing knowledge in this nascent field. Separate sections will address (1) how we can measure affective touch, (2) CT structure and physiology, (3) CT processing, (4) the contribution of CTs to sexual behavior, (5) clinical relevance, (6) commercial relevance, and (7) future research considerations.?

Atlas of Office Based Andrology Procedures

?This text provides a comprehensive resource and step-by-step guide to the office based procedures that would commonly occur in an andrology practice. The main purpose of the text is to serve as a “How-to” guide for urology providers and staff to help with either initial training or as a refresher prior to performing the procedures. Written by experts in the field, each chapter begins with information on necessary equipment and shows a series of images (photos and illustrations) on key points during the procedure, including tips and tricks of the trade.      

Atlas of Office Based Andrology Procedures provides a valuable resource for urologists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants in practice, residents and fellows in urological training, as well as nurses and medical assistants who help with these procedures.

Quantitative Human Physiology: An Introduction (Academic Press Series in Biomedical Engineering)

By (author): Joseph J Feher Ph.D. Cornell University

Quantitative Human Physiology: An Introduction presents a course in quantitative physiology developed for undergraduate students of Biomedical Engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University. The text covers all the elements of physiology in nine units: (1) physical and chemical foundations; (2) cell physiology; (3) excitable tissue physiology; (4) neurophysiology; (5) cardiovascular physiology; (6) respiratory physiology; (7) renal physiology; (8) gastrointestinal physiology; and (9) endocrinology.
The text makes extensive use of mathematics at the level of calculus and elementary differential equations. Examples and problem sets are provided to facilitate quantitative and analytic understanding, while the clinical applications scattered throughout the text illustrate the rationale behind the topics discussed.
This text is written for students with no knowledge of physiology but with a solid background in calculus with elementary differential equations. The text is also useful for instructors with less time; each chapter is intended to be a single lecture and can be read in a single sitting.
  • A quantitative approach that includes physical and chemical principles
  • An integrated approach from first principles, integrating anatomy, molecular biology, biochemistry and physiology. Illustration program reinforces the integrated nature of physiological systems
  • Pedagogically rich, including chapter objectives, chapter summaries, large number of illustrations, and short chapters suitable for single lectures
  • Clinical applications relevant to the biomedical engineering student (TENS, cochlear implants, blood substitutes, etc.)
  • Problem sets provide opportunity for practice and assessment throughout the course.

Colon, Rectum and Anus: Anatomic, Physiologic and Diagnostic Bases for Disease Management (Coloproctology)

This is the first volume in the new Springer Major Reference Work series entitled Coloproctology. The book covers key topics in the anatomy and physiology of the colon, rectum and anus and the diagnosis of colorectal/anal diseases and disorders. It thus forms a sound basis for further volumes in the series that will focus on the treatment of more specific clinical conditions. The subjects addressed in the volume are crucial to effective patient management and the book highlights the fact that adequate diagnostic assessment of a given disease is significantly related to the pathophysiologic interpretation of the pathologic process. The purpose of the volume is to provide readers with up-to-date knowledge on colorectal and anal anatomy and physiology, particularly from a treatment perspective and to describe the methodology to be employed in choosing the best diagnostic work-up in coloproctology.

Clinical Neurophysiology in Pediatrics: A Practical Approach to Neurodiagnostic Testing and Management

By (author): Gloria Galloway

This is the first book to comprehensively address neurodiagnostic testing for the broad scope of clinical neurophysiologic disorders in the pediatric population. The field of clinical neurophysiology has expanded exponentially with the development of new approaches, techniques, studies, and certifications. This book bridges the gap in clinical information available for practitioners who use neurophysiologic techniques to evaluate and treat children and adolescents with epilepsy, sleep, neuromuscular, and autonomic disorders but may not have subspecialty training in each individual field.

Electrophysiological Maneuvers for Arrhythmia Analysis

By (author): George J. Klein, Lorne J. Gula, Peter Leong-Sit, Jaimie Manlucu, Allan C. Skanes, Raymond Yee, Paul D. Purves

It goes without saying that a correct arrhythmia diagnosis is a prerequisite to catheter ablation regardless of the presence of sophisticated mapping and imaging technologies. Electrophysiological maneuvers are fundamental to this process, and proper selection and interpretation of maneuvers constitute a core skill of the electrophysiologist. In this volume, we make the case that most maneuvers are fundamentally similar in principle and can be understood by appreciating a few basic physiological and anatomical principles. The art lies not in a comprehensive knowledge by rote of every maneuver or its application, but rather a systematic approach using common principles. We illustrate this by showing abundant examples and emphasizing the “game plan,” including checklists that can be applied to virtually any maneuver.
