Neurobiology of Human Values (Research and Perspectives in Neurosciences)


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Man has been pondering for centuries over the basis of his own ethical and aesthetic values. Until recent times, such issues were primarily fed by the thinking of philosophers, moralists and theologists, or by the findings of historians or sociologists relating to universality or variations in these values within various populations. Science has avoided this field of investigation within the confines of philosophy.

Beyond the temptation to stay away from the field of knowledge science may also have felt itself unconcerned by the study of human values for a simple heuristic reason, namely the lack of tools allowing objective study. For the same reason, researchers tended to avoid the study of feelings or consciousness until, over the past two decades, this became a focus of interest for many neuroscientists.

It is apparent that many questions linked to research in the field of neuroscience are now arising. The hope is that this book will help to formulate them more clearly rather than skirting them. The authors do not wish to launch a new moral philosophy, but simply to gather objective knowledge for reflection.

Dendrites


Dendrites are complex neuronal structures that receive and integrate synaptic input from other nerve cells. They therefore play a critical role in brain function. Although dendrites were discovered over a century ago, due to the development of powerful new techniques there has been a dramatic resurgence of interest in the properties and function of these beautiful structures.

This is the third edition of the first book devoted exclusively to dendrites. It contains a comprehensive survey of the current state of dendritic research across a wide range of topics, from dendritic morphology, evolution, development, and plasticity through to the electrical, biochemical and computational properties of dendrites, and finally to the key role of dendrites in brain disease. The third edition has been thoroughly revised, with each chapter updated or completely rewritten by leading experts, plus the addition of a number of new chapters.

“Dendrites” will be of interest to researchers and students in neuroscience and related fields, as well as to anyone interested in how the brain works.

Percutaneous Interventions for Structural Heart Disease: An Illustrated Guide


This book presents the percutaneous techniques and technologies most frequently employed in structural interventional cardiology, focusing especially on how to optimize outcomes and minimize risk. Interventional procedures for aortic stenosis, mitral regurgitation, left atrial appendage closure, patent foramen ovale closure, and closure of interatrial and interventricular defects are clearly presented step by step with the aid of a wealth of images. These descriptions are complemented by a case-based analysis of the various structural pathologies and their complications. Clear guidance is also provided on patient selection, preoperative evaluation, and choice of available devices. The authors are all acknowledged experts with extensive experience in laboratories and surgical units.   The book fully reflects the rapid changes in structural interventional cardiology that have occurred during recent years. These advances are in particular due to the introduction of transcatheter aortic valve implantation, which allows cardiac surgeons to achieve excellent outcomes in patients at high surgical risk. Other exciting developments include new technologies that permit better treatment of other structural cardiac pathologies and valid alternatives to medical therapy in particular patient groups.

Transient Receptor Potential Canonical Channels and Brain Diseases (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)


This book discusses the latest findings on the physiological and pathological functions of transient receptor potential canonical/classical (TRPC) proteins in the brain. In addition to reviewing the functions of TRPCs in brain development and neuron transmission, it mainly covers the potential roles of TRPCs in brain disorders. TRPC proteins belong to the TRP channel superfamily, which has around 30 members. Just like TRP channels, TRPCs are non-selectively permeable to cations, with a selectivity of calcium over sodium that varies among different members. The TRPC subfamily consists of six members, grouped on the basis of the similarities in gene sequence and protein structure in mammalians. What sets TRPCs apart from other subfamilies in TRPs is that their activation, stimulated by a membrane receptor-phospholipid C (PLC) cascade, contributes to the slow and sustained elevation of intracellular free calcium. Calcium ions, one of the most important types of second messengers, mediate a variety of physiological functions in the brain, including progenitor cell proliferation, dendritic formation, synaptic transmission and neuronal survival. All TRPCs except TRPC7 have been found in various regions of the brain, including the cerebrum, cerebellum, forebrain and hippocampus. This book provides students and investigators with comprehensive information on the regulation, function and potential of TRPCs and brain diseases in order to attract more attention to this field.

Professors, Physicians and Practices in the History of Medicine: Essays in Honor of Nancy Siraisi (Archimedes)


This book presents essays by eminent scholars from across the history of medicine, early science and European history, including those expert on the history of the book. The volume honors Professor Nancy Siraisi and reflects the impact that Siraisi’s scholarship has had on a range of fields. Contributions address several topics ranging from the medical provenance of biblical commentary to the early modern emergence of pathological medicine. Along the way, readers may learn of the purchasing habits of physician-book collectors, the writing of history and the development of natural history. Modeling the interdisciplinary approaches championed by Siraisi, this volume attests to the enduring value of her scholarship while also highlighting critical areas of future research. Those with an interest in the history of science, the history of medicine and all related fields will find this work a stimulating and rewarding read.

Advances in the Management of Testosterone Deficiency (Frontiers of Hormone Research, Vol. 37)


Testosterone has an important influence on major organ systems and tissues, including brain, metabolism, cardiovascular as well as musculoskeletal and immune systems. Covering many clinical areas, this book pays particular attention to the diagnosis and management of hypogonadism, discussing current guidelines, biochemical assessment, new options in testosterone replacement therapy and long-term monitoring of treated men. Furthermore the role of testosterone deficiency in aging, obesity, muscle function and frailty and erectile dysfunction is covered. Recent evidence for the role of testosterone in the pathogenesis of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis is reported. New developments in the potential treatment of these clinical conditions are also presented. Primarily of interest to endocrinologists, urologists, andrologists and sexologists, the range of topics covered is also relevant to primary care physicians, gerontologists, diabetologists and cardiologists.

Hypertension and Cardiac Organ Damage (Practical Case Studies in Hypertension Management)


By (author): Raffaele Izzo

This book identifies the key determinants in the management of hypertensive outpatients with Cardiac Target Organ Damage. It sheds light on current international guidelines by directly applying them to six representative clinical cases that reflect situations frequently encountered during clinical routine rather than emergencies or rare occurrences.
The book enables cardiologists and angiologists alike to gain an overview of the most frequent cardiac dysfunctions related to hypertension: left atrial enlargement, aortic root dilatation, diastolic dysfunction, systolic dysfunction, left and right ventricular enlargement. Each case is illustrated and analyzed in detail – from family and personal history to treatment and follow-up – providing readers with valuable guidance that will help them to select the best suited diagnostic tool and treatment for each patient.
