Time Series Modeling of Neuroscience Data

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Time Series Modeling of Neuroscience Data
Jul 102020
 

Recent advances in brain science measurement technology have given researchers access to very large-scale time series data such as EEG/MEG data (20 to 100 dimensional) and fMRI (140,000 dimensional) data. To analyze such massive data, efficient computational and statistical methods are required. Time Series Modeling of Neuroscience Data shows how to efficiently analyze neuroscience data by the Wiener-Kalman-Akaike approach, in which dynamic models of all kinds, such as linear/nonlinear differential equation models and time series models, are used for whitening the temporally dependent time series in the framework of linear/nonlinear state space models. Using as little mathematics as possible, this book explores some of its basic concepts and their derivatives as useful tools for time series analysis. Unique features include:
A statistical identification method of highly nonlinear dynamical systems such as the Hodgkin-Huxley model, Lorenz chaos model, Zetterberg Model, and more
Methods and applications for Dynamic Causality Analysis developed by Wiener, Granger, and Akaike
A state space modeling method for dynamicization of solutions for the Inverse Problems
A heteroscedastic state space modeling method for dynamic non-stationary signal decomposition for applications to signal detection problems in EEG data analysis
An innovation-based method for the characterization of nonlinear and/or non-Gaussian time series
An innovation-based method for spatial time series modeling for fMRI data analysis

The main point of interest in this book is to show that the same data can be treated using both a dynamical system and time series approach so that the neural and physiological information can be extracted more efficiently. Of course, time series modeling is valid not only in neuroscience data analysis but also in many other sciences and engineering fields where the statistical inference from the observed time series data plays an important role.

Pediatric Dysphagia: Challenges and Controversies

 Gastroenterology/Hepatology, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Pediatric Dysphagia: Challenges and Controversies
Jul 102020
 

Pediatric dysphagia is a clinical problem that crosses disciplines. Children may be seen by numerous medical specialties including pediatric otolaryngology, gastroenterology, pulmonology, speech pathology, occupational therapy, and lactation consultants. The myriad approaches to the diagnosis and management of dysphagia is confusing for both clinicians and families; resulting in recurrent trips to medical professionals. Feeding is integral to socialization and to bonding between infants and parents. Disruptions in feeding development can be extremely taxing emotionally and economically for families. Children with dysphagia are some of the most challenging patients even for clinicians who specialize in their care.
This text provides the reader with a comprehensive understanding of swallowing and presents a practical, evidence-based approach to the diagnosis and management of swallowing difficulties in children. It also highlights particular clinical challenges and controversies in the management of pediatric dysphagia. It is unique in that it incorporates the perspectives of multiple types of clinicians that care for these patients including otolaryngologists, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, speech pathologists, occupational therapists and lactation consultants. In doing so, this text will encourage cross-specialty pollination of ideas and knowledge as well as stimulate further research in the field.
Part 1 of the text begins with an overview of the anatomy and physiology of swallowing with a focus on normal development as we currently understand it. It also discusses new information regarding reflexive interactions between the larynx and esophagus that potentially influence swallowing. It then moves on to a discussion of the advantages and limitations of currently available diagnostic modalities and highlights current controversies regarding frame rate, radiation exposure, breastfeeding infants, and grading of studies. Additionally, it reviews the current literature regarding medical and behavioral-based therapy options, including thickening options, oromotor therapy, and controversies concerning strict NPO.
Part 2 addresses specific diagnoses which can cause or be associated with dysphagia such as prematurity, velopharyngeal insufficiency, ankyloglossia, laryngeal clefts, laryngomalacia, vocal fold paralysis, and cricopharyngeal dysfunction. The text goes on to explore the pathophysiology and treatment options for each. Anatomic, inflammatory, and neuromuscular esophageal causes of dysphagia are also evaluated. In addition, it delves into the impact of craniofacial anomalies, sialorrhea and psychological factors on swallowing. Finally, it discusses how a multidisciplinary aerodigestive team can help streamline multidisciplinary care for individual patients. It will incorporate information pertinent to the different roles, tools and views of a multidisciplinary dysphagia team, including how pediatric otolaryngologists, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, and dieticians can collaborate to provide optimal evaluation and care of these often challenging patients, especially for those who are at high-risk of complications related to aspiration.

Improved diagnostic sophistication is increasingly enabling neurologists to differentiate between Parkinson’s disease and other atypical parkinsonism (AP), such as multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration, and dementia with Lewy bodies. The Handbook of Atypical Parkinsonism is a comprehensive survey of all diseases of this category, providing an authoritative guide to the recognition, diagnosis and management of these disorders. Each chapter follows a common structure, commencing with the full basic science of the disorder under consideration, followed by descriptions of the clinical picture and differential diagnosis. Subsequent chapters discuss current and future therapeutic approaches to these difficult conditions. Written and edited by leading practitioners in the field, clinicians in neurology and other specialties will find this book essential to the understanding and diagnosis of this complex group of disorders.
