Based on Dr. Wright’s classic major reference, Handbook of Pediatric Neuroophthalmology outlines the latest findings in diagnosing children`s eye diseases and their treatment options. Distilling the essentials of ocular manifestations of pediatric neuroophthalmologic disorders and diseases into a portable, complete and authoritative pocket reference, this handbook offers a complete picture of how to best treat pediatric patients. Specifically, the introductory chapters on the specifics of pediatric ophthalmology (embryology, post-natal development and the pediatric exam) will help newcomers to pediatric practice fully grasp the subtle differences in pediatric care. The chapters are written by leading experts in the field and are presented in a user-friendly format, relying on heavily illustrated in color plates, clinically helpful tables, charts, and decision-making guidelines. This approach will enable the practitioner (whether specialist or generalist) to make the most accurate diagnosis and choose the most effective treatment option.

Oxidative Stress and Neuroprotection

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Oxidative Stress and Neuroprotection
Apr 142020
 

This book deals with basic and clinical aspects of monoamine oxidase (MAO) subtypes A and B highlighting its importance in neurological and psychiatric diseases. Consequently the therapeutic actions of MAO-A and -B inhibitors in Parkinson’s disease (PK) and depression are the focus of several chapters. As MAO is the basis of the development of the “oxidative stress hypothesis” of PD, several chapters are devoted to iron and iron-induced oxidative stress in various experimental studies and clinical conditions. Based on these findings, new compounds have been developed which not only block MAO, but are in addition, either inhibitors of acetylcholine esterase or have iron chelating properties. The aspect of “preclinical” and “clinical” neuro protection as well as MAO neuroprotection are additional topics covered in this book. MAO, iron and neuroprotection are seen in the framework of general anti Parkinson’s therapy with chapters on levodopa, dopaminergic receptor agonists and clinical issues.

Neurology of Music

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Neurology of Music
Apr 102020
 

The first British book on neurology in music was published over 30 years ago. Edited by Drs Macdonald Critchley and R A Henson, it was entitled Music and the Brain (published by Wm Heinemann Medical Books), but all of its contributors are now either retired or deceased. Since then, there has been an increasing amount of research, and the present volume includes the most significant of these advances.
The book begins with the evolutionary basis of meaning in music and continues with the historical perspectives, after which the human nervous system is compared to a clavichord, highlighting the use of metaphor in the history of modern neurology. It discusses the neurologist in the concert hall as well as the musician at the bedside by showing how neurology enriches musical perception, the main theme being the cerebral localisation of music production and perception. The book also emphasises the value of teaching singing to treat speech disorders and the importance of nerve compression in musicians, the final chapter being on recent techniques of imaging the musical brain.

The increasing pressure upon clinicians to see more and more patients generates great concern as to how to offer a comprehensive and thorough diagnostic approach and yet maintain efficiency. Neurologic Differential Diagnosis is the answer. Unlike other texts which are divided into disease entities, this book uses a case study approach to focus on the patients’ symptoms. Each chapter is dedicated to a specific presenting symptom or sign and includes a comprehensive, yet succinct table of clinical features to aid clarification of the broad list of diagnostic possibilities. This allows the clinician to quickly reference specific symptoms such as dizziness, mental status change or diplopia; or signs such as foot drop or psychotic behavior, and then immediately generate diagnostic possibilities. Written from the authors’ extensive clinical experience, Neurologic Differential Diagnosis is an invaluable text for neurologists and psychiatrists at all stages of training.

Neurological Differential Diagnosis: A Prioritized Approach

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neurological Differential Diagnosis: A Prioritized Approach
Apr 062020
 

Neurology is primarily characterized by a variety of diseases which seem very similar and are therefore difficult to distinguish between. Skill at differential diagnosis is therefore absolutely paramount.

Neurological Differential Diagnosis is a streamlined handbook of prioritized differential diagnosis, to be used both in clinical practice and for exam review.

By presenting differential diagnosis in order of frequency and importance, this book provides a practical handbook for clinicians in training, as well as a potential resource for quick board review. Whilst the book covers the most important syndromes and disease entities, readers are referred to other texts for more exhaustive differentials. By limiting differentials in this way – to the most likely and most serious diagnoses – the reader can more easily recall relevant disease processes when faced with a particular clinical situation, whether it be a patient in the emergency room or a difficult question on the board examination.

The book specifically targets neurology residents and fellows, with overlap to neurosurgery and psychiatry. Internal medicine physicians with an interest in neurological problems and medical students looking for an edge in clinical neuroscience would also benefit from this text.

The content is primarily mid-level material, in a pedagogic format.

In order to organize the students’ thought processes concise tables and line drawing templates are included. The book is organized into broad chapters by type of disorder and some overlap occurs between particular chapters.

Review

“This is a “pearl” of a book for any clinician who is asked to assess patients with symptoms or signs suggestive of a neurological disorder, including neurologists, internists, geriatricians, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, general practitioners, trainees, and students. Neurological Differential Diagnosis will enlighten clinicians on the most likely and important differential diagnoses to consider and exclude, and guide appropriate and cost-effective investigations. The book has a unique format; it is the only book I know to list differential diagnoses according to what is most common in patients of the same demographic and what is potentially the most lethal and disabling. This hierarchy of differential diagnoses is clearly and consistently presented (eg, in bold and italicised text) throughout the book. Associated relevant background information for each symptom, syndrome, or disorder is well presented (in shaded boxes) with the list of differential diagnoses. Welcome chapters on paediatric neurology, neurogenetics, neuroradiology, diagnostic tests, neuroanatomy, and neuropathology are included. Although few references are given, the book seems to be valid, based on a wealth of clinical experience coupled with best evidence from the available literature. Even after practising clinical neurology for more than 20 years, I have already dipped into this book on several occasions to help me with tricky patients, and I have to remind my neurology residents and registrars, and colleagues in the accident and emergency department, to return it.”
–Graeme J Hankey (The Lancet Neurology, Vol 4 November 2005)

From the Back Cover

Neurological Differential Diagnosis: A Prioritized Approach provides a practical, problem-based differential diagnosis for the entire spectrum of neurological disease.
The unique aspect of this book is that the differential diagnosis lists are prioritized by listing the most common possibilities first. Furthermore, less common diagnoses that are potentially fatal or disabling in the acute period (diagnoses that “you don’t want to miss”) are also highlighted. So the most common and the most dangerous disorders are given greater weight than rare or slowly evolving conditions that are less urgent, like a top 10 list of most common clinical neurological scenarios.

Moreover, each differential also contains characteristics that help distinguish the specific diagnoses. Neurological Differential Diagnosis: A Prioritized Approach is a user-friendly and easily understandable guide to the most common and most dangerous neurological conditions.

Neurological Differential Diagnosis: A Prioritized Approach has been written for practitioners and medical trainees with an interest in neurological diagnosis. This includes neurology, neurosurgery and psychiatry residents, also internal medicine or family medicine residents, and, of course, medical students. Primary care practitioners should also find the organization of this book useful in their daily practice.

Brain Imaging: What it Can (and Cannot) Tell Us About Consciousness

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology  Comments Off on Brain Imaging: What it Can (and Cannot) Tell Us About Consciousness
Apr 032020
 

Magnetic resonance imaging methods have taken a commanding position in brain studies because they allow scientists to follow brain activities in the living human. The ability to measure cerebral anatomy, neuronal firing, and brain metabolism has extended and re-invigorated hopes of understanding the role that brain activity plays in human life. The brain has assumed a central role in our thinking of the world that can be traced back to the philosophies that are expressed in psychology, religion, literature, and everyday life. Brain scientists, planning and measuring brain activities by imaging methods, have consciously or unconsciously been influenced by these philosophical views.

Brain Imaging: What It Can (and Cannot) Tell Us About Consciousness, in describing the experiments using imaging methods, traces how assumptions about the nature of brain function made in planning scientific experiments are the consequences of philosophical positions. Experiments that relate brain activities to observable behavior are shown to avoid the philosophical and psychological assumptions about mental processes that have been proposed to underlie these behaviors. This analysis establishes the conditions necessary for reproducible brain responses.
