The Patient’s Brain: The neuroscience behind the doctor-patient relationship

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Patient’s Brain: The neuroscience behind the doctor-patient relationship
Feb 272020
 

There is a vast literature on what has often been called the doctor-patient relationship, patient-provider interaction, therapist-patient encounter, and such like. However, it is thanks to recent advances within neuroscience, that we now find ourselves in a much better position to be able to describe and discuss the biological mechanisms that underlie the doctor-patient relationship. For example, we now know that different physiological and biochemical mechanisms
take part in complex functions, like trust, hope, empathy and compassion, which are all key elements in the therapist-patient encounter. With this neuroscientific knowledge in their hands, health professionals will soon be able to directly see how their words, attitudes, and behaviours activate and
inactivate molecules, cortical areas, and sensory systems in the brains of their patients.

This revolutionary new book describes and explains how this new scientific knowledge can be put to great practical use. It shows how, from a neuroscientific perspective, the doctor-patient relationship can be subdivided into at least four steps: feeling sick, seeking relief, meeting the therapist, and receiving therapy. The main advantage to approaching the doctor-patient relationship from a neuroscientific perspective is that physicians, psychologists and health professionals can better
understand what kind of changes they can induce in their patients’ brains, further boosting the professional’s empathic and compassionate behaviour.

Written by the author of the critically acclaimed ‘Placebo Effects’, this book will lead to a better awareness of the potential power that the doctor’s behaviour may have on the patient’s behaviour and capacity for recovery from illness, as well as to better medical practice and social/communication skills. It will be required reading for physicians, psychotherapists, and neuroscientists.

Painful Diabetic Neuropathy in Clinical Practice provides a concise, didactic and essential resource for clinicians in the management of neuropathic pain in diabetic patients.
This volume opens with overviews of epidemiology, classification and clinical features, including a discussion of the negative effect of painful neuropathic symptoms on quality of life. These are followed by a chapter on diagnosis and staging, which includes approaches to history taking, clinical examination, pain assessment scales, testing and staging. The book concludes with a chapter on the various approaches in the management of neuropathic pain, including the most up-to-date guidelines on the pharmacological treatment of this condition.
This concise handbook is an invaluable reference for primary care practitioners and diabetologists who wish to keep up to date with the diagnosis and management of neuropathic pain.

Neurodevelopmental Disorders

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neurodevelopmental Disorders
Feb 222020
 

We have great pleasure to present the latest extension of the European Institute of Health Care book series. This volume is devoted to neurodevelopmental d- orders. Again, we had the privilege to be able to work with reknowned experts who have agreed to contribute to this endeavour. The book comprises a number of topics related to psychosocial and motor development and is exemplary with regard to its comprehensiveness, as reviews of the topics presented are generally not available in a single publication. It starts with a timely and critical discussion of the genetics of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder by Dr. Buitelaar in which prospects and challenges of this approach are outlined. The next chapter by Drs. Nicolson and Fawcett deals with dyslexia and its relationship to cerebellar function providing a framework that can explain motor, speed, and phonological deficits in a unified approach. Diagnostic and treatment aspects of speech development disorders are the focus of Dr. Zorowka’s contribution in which, among other issues, the necessity of mul- professional cooperation is stressed. Dr. Sigmundsson then focuses on disorders of motor development. 6-10 % of children have motor competence well below the norm, which often persist. The clumsy child syndrome must be seen and treated as a neurological dysfunction. The relationship between tic disorders and obsessive compulsive disorder, two disturbances generally treated by different medical specialists, namely neurologists or psychiatrists, is then reviewed by Drs.

Concussion Rescue: A Comprehensive Program to Heal Traumatic Brain Injury

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Concussion Rescue: A Comprehensive Program to Heal Traumatic Brain Injury
Feb 122020
 

“The definitive guide to treating traumatic brain injury (TBI), from mild to severe, Concussion Rescue provides the most up-to-date, effective strategies for recovering your health and your life. Dr. Chapek has created an essential resource for anyone struggling with the effects of concussion.”
—Mark Hyman, MD #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

For more than 25 years, the renowned Amen Clinics has been the

front line of defense against the impact of traumatic brain injury

Few of us have been untouched by injury, whether on the sports field, in a car accident, falling off a bicycle, or in the course of military service. While the consequences of a concussion are not always immediately apparent, they can range from debilitating to devastating. In fact, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is fast becoming a national health crisis, with millions of Americans visiting emergency rooms with a TBI each year. But there are proven, effective steps for healing.

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Kabran Chapek describes in detail the programs and protocols he uses at the Amen Clinics to put patients on a pathway to recovery.

For anyone struggling with the effects of concussion, Concussion Rescue guides you through strategies from the cutting edge of brain science:
• Find out what treatments should be employed within the first few hours, days, or weeks of suffering a concussion
• Build a diet and supplement plan that energizes your brain and promotes neurological healing
• Learn specific brain exercises and brain games that can alleviate problems with focus and concentration
• Discover which specific types of exercise can speed recovery—and how exercise affects the brain in general
• Correct sleep problems to detoxify the brain and release essential hormones that aid in healing

With a foreword by renowned psychiatrist and brain health expert Dr. Daniel Amen, Concussion Rescue provides the tools for recovery from mild to severe traumatic brain injury. Whether you or someone you love is among the many individuals suffering from a TBI, here is hope and help.

OCT and Imaging in Central Nervous System Diseases: The Eye as a Window to the Brain

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology  Comments Off on OCT and Imaging in Central Nervous System Diseases: The Eye as a Window to the Brain
Feb 042020
 

The second edition of OCT and Imaging in Central Nervous System Diseases offers updated state-of-the-art advances using optical coherence tomography (OCT) regrading neuronal loss within the retina. Detailed information on the OCT imaging and interpretation is provided for the evaluation of disease progression in numerous neurodegenerative disorders and as a biological marker of neuroaxonal injury.
Covering disorders like multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, intracranial hypertension, Friedreich’s ataxia, schizophrenia, hereditary optic neuropathies, glaucoma, and amblyopia, readers will given insights into effects on the retina and the and optic nerve. Individual chapters are also devoted to OCT technique, new OCT technology in neuro-ophthalmology, OCT and pharmacological treatment, and the use of OCT in animal models.

Similar to the first edition, this book is an excellent and richly illustrated reference for diagnosis of many retinal diseases and monitoring of surgical and medical treatment. OCT allows to study vision from of the retina to the optic tracts. Retinal axons in the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) are non-myelinated until they penetrate the lamina cribrosa. Hence, the RNFL is an ideal structure for visualization of any process of neurodegeneration, neuroprotection, or regeneration. By documenting the ability of OCT to provide key information on CNS diseases, this book illustrates convincingly that the eye is indeed the “window to the brain”.
