Encyclopedia of Computational Neuroscience

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Encyclopedia of Computational Neuroscience
Apr 252020
 

The annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting (CNS) began in 1990 as a small workshop called Analysis and Modeling of Neural Systems. The goal of the workshop was to explore the boundary between neuroscience and computation. Riding on the success of several seminal papers, physicists had made “Neural Networks” fashionable, and soon the quantitative methods used in these abstract model networks started permeating the methods and ideas of experimental neuroscientists.
Although experimental neurophysiological approaches provided many advances, it became increasingly evident that mathematical and computational techniques would be required to achieve a comprehensive and quantitative understanding of neural system function. “Computational Neuroscience” emerged to complement experimental neurophysiology.

The Encyclopedia of Computational Neuroscience, published in conjunction with the Organization for Computational Neuroscience, will be an extensive reference work consultable by both researchers and graduate level students. It will be a dynamic, living reference, updatable and containing linkouts and multimedia content whenever relevant.

Protein Chaperones and Protection from Neurodegenerative Diseases

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Protein Chaperones and Protection from Neurodegenerative Diseases
Apr 252020
 

How protein chaperones protect cells from neurodegenerative diseases
Including contributions from leading experts, Protein Chaperones and Protection from Neurodegenerative Diseases provides an in-depth exploration of how protein chaperones are involved in shielding cells from toxic aggregated or misfolded protein states that cause ALS, Parkinson’s, and related diseases.
Examining how different protein chaperones ameliorate the toxicity of proteins that are known to cause neurodegenerative damage, the book addresses both research and clinical perspectives on chaperone and anti-chaperone properties. The intersection of molecular chaperones and neurodegeneration is an intensely studied area, partly because of the potential for manipulating the expression of molecular chaperones to thwart the progression of debilitating diseases, and partly because of the ever-aging global population.
Discussing the potential to harness the power of protein chaperones, and future directions for research, discovery, and therapeutics, this book is essential reading for scientists working in the fields of biochemistry, molecular medicine, pharmacology and drug discovery, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, advanced students, and anyone interested in this cutting-edge topic.

Brain Repair

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Brain Repair
Apr 242020
 

Brain Repair, addresses all relevant issues underlying the mechanisms of brain damage, brain plasticity and post-traumatic reorganisation after CNS lesions. This book is divided the three major sections that follow; cellular and molecular basis of brain repair, plasticity and reorganisation of neural networks, and experimental therapy strategies.

Brain Repair is written by high profile, international experts who describe in detail the newest results from basic research and highlight new model systems, techniques and therapy approaches. Based on a careful analysis of the cellular and molecular reaction patterns of the CNS to lesions, the contributions cover possibilities for endogenous reorganisation and repair as well as exciting new therapies emerging from basic research, some of which have already been introduced into the clinics. Thus, this book is unique in bridging the gap between basic and clinical research. It will be a valuable tool for all students, researchers and clinicians interested in understanding the brain’s capacity to cope with lesions and interested in learning about emerging new therapy concepts.

Inside the Closed World of the Brain: How brain cells connect, share and disengage–and why this holds the key to Alzheimer’s

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Inside the Closed World of the Brain: How brain cells connect, share and disengage–and why this holds the key to Alzheimer’s
Apr 242020
 

Inside the Closed World of the Brain What really happens inside the human brain as people age? Most adults fear the onset of dementia in general, and Alzheimer’s disease in particular, more than physical disability. Many ask: What is Alzheimer’s disease? Could I have it? Clear answers about Alzheimer’s dementia and what is required to live a long, mentally healthy life requires first an understanding of how the brain’s many types of cells connect, share and disengage. Recent studies show unequivocally that the non-neuron cells of the brain, the glia and microglia, actively participate in maintaining its well-being. Yet, glia and microglia are also significant participants in the demise of the memory neurons lost in Alzheimer’s dementia. “Inside the Closed World of the Brain” is organized to take a reader on a journey through the brain that begins with tactics for quickly learning the necessary words. Next, there is an explanation of the general organization of the human brain both at the visual and microscopic level. After that the brain’s system for internal quality control of its watery environment, critical for neuron function, is described. From there the reader is introduced to all of the cells of the brain and how they work together under normal circumstances to form memory and acquire language. Then, what science now knows about how this system fails in Alzheimer’s dementia is presented. Postmortem data from long-lived, mentally competent people is compared to that from people who died of Alzheimer’s disease. This comparison, only recently available, is leading to a re-evaluation of how Alzheimer’s disease develops and provides clues for development of new therapies.

Homeostatic Control of Brain Function

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Homeostatic Control of Brain Function
Apr 202020
 

Homeostatic Control of Brain Function offers a broad view of brain health and diverse perspectives for potential treatments, targeting key areas such as mitochondria, the immune system, epigenetic changes, and regulatory molecules such as ions, neuropeptides, and neuromodulators. Loss of homeostasis becomes expressed as a diverse array of neurological disorders.
Each disorder has multiple comorbidities – with some crossing over several conditions – and often disease-specific treatments remain elusive. When current pharmacological therapies result in ineffective and inadequate outcomes, therapies to restore and maintain homeostatic functions can help improve brain health, no matter the diagnosis. Employing homeostatic therapies may lead to future cures or treatments that address multiple comorbidities. In an age where brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s are ever present, the incorporation of homeostatic techniques could successfully promote better overall brain health.
Key Features include
· A focus on the homeostatic controls that significantly depend on the way one lives, eats, and drinks.
· Highlights from emerging research in non-pharmaceutical therapies including botanical medications, meditation, diet, and exercise.
· Incorporation of homeostatic therapies into existing basic and clinical research paradigms.
· Extensive scientific basic and clinical research ranging from molecules to disorders.
· Emerging practical information for improving homeostasis.
· Examples of homeostatic therapies in preventing and delaying dysfunction.
Both editors, Detlev Boison and Susan Masino, bring their unique expertise in homeostatic research to the overall scope of this work. This book is accessible to all with an interest in brain health; scientist, clinician, student, and lay reader alike.
