Somatosensory Processing: From Single Neuron to Brain Imaging

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology  Comments Off on Somatosensory Processing: From Single Neuron to Brain Imaging
Mar 252020
 

The diversity of contemporary investigative approaches included in this volume provides an exciting account of our current understanding of brain mechanisms responsible for sensory and perceptual experience in the areas of touch, kinesthesia, and pain.Postgraduate research students in sensory physiology, neurology, psychology and anatomy, and researchers themselves will find that this volume addresses many of the key issues in our attempts to understand the neural mechanisms that mediate sensory experience arising from the body as a whole, the so-called somatic senses, in particular for touch and pain. The volume provides a record of the occasion of the St Petersburg IUPS symposium, chaired by the editors of this volume, and includes some added recent contributions from other leading international figures in the field. Brought together under the sponsoring banner of the IUPS Commission for Somatosensory Physiology and Pain, these scientists with their different experimental approaches seek collectively to understand the brain mechanisms that underlie our own nature and experience.

Cerebrovascular Neurosurgery

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Cerebrovascular Neurosurgery
Mar 252020
 

Part of the Neurosurgery by Example series, this volume on cerebrovascular neurosurgery presents exemplary cases in which renowned authors guide readers through the assessment and planning, decision making, surgical procedure, after care, and complication management of common and uncommon disorders. The cases explore the spectrum of clinical diversity and complexity within cerebrovascular neurosurgery, including aneurysms, ischemic/occlusive disease, arteriovenous malformation, dural arteriovenous fistula, and more.

Each chapter also contains ‘pivot points’ that illuminate changes required to manage patients in alternate or atypical situations, and pearls for accurate diagnosis, successful treatment, and effective complication management. Containing a focused review of medical evidence and expected outcomes, Cerebrovascular Neurosurgery is appropriate for neurosurgeons who wish to learn more about a subspecialty, and those preparing for the American Board of Neurological Surgery oral examination.

Structure of Enteric Neurons

 Anatomy, Embryology, Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Structure of Enteric Neurons
Mar 242020
 

This book first presents an overview on the chemical coding of the morphological neuron types described by Stach in the pig intestine. In doing so, we have pointed out the difference between the definitions of type I neurons given by Dogiel and Stach. Secondly, it provides a basis for the morpho-chemical classification of human enteric neurons as revealed by their immunoreactivity for neurofilaments and several neuroactive substances or related markers.

Mind and Brain: Bridging Neurology and Psychiatry

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Mind and Brain: Bridging Neurology and Psychiatry
Mar 192020
 

This book discusses the link between the brain and the mind. Adopting an evidence-based neuropsychiatry approach while also touching on philosophical aspects, it examines the association between diseases of the brain and mental health, offering comprehensive insights into the emerging new discipline of psychoneuroendocrinoimmunology and its translation to clinical practice. The book particularly focuses on brain plasticity and on explaining the ability of the brain to learn new pathways in everyday situations and at the same time improve creativity.
Written by clinicians and leading experts in the field of brain physiology and pathology, this book is a valuable resource for medical professionals and postgraduate students.

Encephalitis: Diagnosis and Treatment

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Encephalitis: Diagnosis and Treatment
Mar 192020
 

Inflammation of the brain, usually brought on by a viral infection, encephalitis currently poses a grave threat to patients around the world. With the migration of West Nile virus into North America, there is a greater awareness and corresponding need to understand, diagnose, and manage this illness.

In Encephalitis: Diagnosis and Treatment, experts discuss advances in diagnostic tools, as well as therapeutic approaches that allow clinicians to better recognize and treat afflicted patients.

Individual chapters address the principal infectious and non-infectious causes of brain inflammation, including paraneoplastic encephalitides—an apparent autoimmune process in patients with malignancies—as well as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, a post-infectious disorder. The book addresses etiology, epidemiology, and specific issues in diagnosis, pathology, and treatment, including various laboratory methodologies, pathologic changes seen in the different disorders, and diagnosis and management of the seizures that occur quite frequently in these disorders.

With contributions from a group of international experts, the book provides a perspective on this disorder that is both broad and in-depth.

White Matter Diseases: An Update for Neurologists

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on White Matter Diseases: An Update for Neurologists
Mar 192020
 

This book provides cutting-edge information on the epidemiology, etiopathogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnostic procedures and treatment approaches for the main white matter (WM) disorders of the central nervous system (CNS).
WM lesions are associated with many neurological conditions, and with aging. The diagnostic work-up of neurological diseases characterized by the presence of these lesions has changed dramatically over the past few years. This is mainly due on the one hand to the discovery of specific pathogenetic factors in some of these conditions, and on the order to the optimized use of diagnostic tools. All of this has resulted in new diagnostic algorithms, and in the identification of new neurological conditions.
The book offers neurologists essential guidance in the diagnosis and treatment of the most frequent WM conditions, promoting their correct and cost-saving diagnosis and management. By integrating neurological, laboratory and imaging concepts with the demands of accurate diagnosis, this reference guide provides a state-of-the-art overview of the current state of knowledge on these conditions, as well as practical guidelines for their diagnosis and treatment.

Molecular Neuroendocrinology: From Genome to Physiology

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus, Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Molecular Neuroendocrinology: From Genome to Physiology
Mar 172020
 

Molecular Neuroendocrinology: From Genome to Physiology, provides researchers and students with a critical examination of the steps being taken to decipher genome complexity in the context of the expression, regulation and physiological functions of genes in neuroendocrine systems. The 19 chapters are divided into four sectors: A) describes and explores the genome, its evolution, expression and the mechanisms that contribute to protein, and hence biological, diversity. B) discusses the mechanisms that enhance peptide and protein diversity beyond what is encoded in the genome through post–translational modification. C) considers the molecular tools that today s neuroendocrinologists can use to study the regulation and function of neuroendocrine genes within the context of the intact organism. D) presents a range of case studies that exemplify the state–of–the–art application of genomic technologies in physiological and behavioural experiments that seek to better understand complex biological processes.
