Schizophrenia is one of the most complex and disabling diseases toaffect mankind. Relatively little is known about its natureand its origins, and available treatments are inadequate for mostpatients. As a result, there are inevitable controversies aboutwhat causes it, how to diagnose it, and how best to treat it. However, in the past decade, there has been an explosion ofnew research, with dramatic discoveries involving genetic etiologyand epidemiological risk factors. There has also been acatalog of new drugs coming to market, and controversy about therelative advantages and disadvantages of newer compared with oldertherapies. In addition, developing technologies in genomics,molecular biology and neuroimaging provide streams of newinformation. This book represents a definitive, essential, and up–to–datereference text on schizophrenia. It extensively and criticallydigests and clarifies recent advances and places them within aclinical context. The Editors (one American and one British),highly respected clinical psychiatrists and researchers andacknowledged experts on schizophrenia, have again assembled anoutstanding group of contributors from the USA, UK, Europe andAustralia, It will be of value to practising psychiatrists and totrainees, as well as to clinical and neuroscience researchersinterested in keeping up with this field or coming into it. The book consists of four sections: descriptive aspects,biological aspects, physical treatments, and psychological andsocial aspects. It reviews the theoretical controversiesover symptomatology, classification and aetiology (particularlypertinent as DSM–V is being developed), the relationship ofschizophrenia to the other psychoses, the significance of positiveand negative symptoms and pre–morbid personality. It describes avariety of approaches to integrating the vast research data aboutschizophrenia, including neurodevelopmental, genetic,pharmacological, brain imaging and psychological findings. Thebiological treatment section reviews the comparative efficacy ofvarious drugs, the management of drug–resistant patients and bothneurological and metabolic complications. The final section looksat psychological therapies, social outcomes, and the economics ofschizophrenia. Highly Commended in the Psychiatry section of the 2012 BMA Book Awards.

The Intercorrelation of Traumatic Brain Injury and PTSD in Neuropsychological Evaluations

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Psychiatry  Comments Off on The Intercorrelation of Traumatic Brain Injury and PTSD in Neuropsychological Evaluations
Jun 262020
 

This concise reference clarifies the gray areas between traumatic brain injury and PTSD while providing an empirically sound framework for neuropsychological evaluation and differential diagnosis. Its extended research review summarizes findings on key topics including the neuroanatomy of brain injury, test battery design and selection, and the salience of accurate diagnosis to ensuring appropriate specialized treatment. The authors offer the possibility of combined diagnosis as well as injuries that may fall through the diagnostic cracks, and consider possible relationships between TBI, PTSD, and the dementias, including Alzheimer’s disease. This knowledge base and the practical guidelines it informs are presented so that readers can better:

·         Understand the clinical distinctions between TBI and PTSD, and among forms of TBI.
·         Recognize cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and social components of the disorders.
·         Identify skill areas for neuropsychological evaluation of patients.
·         Select appropriate instruments for individualized assessment.
·         Address test administration and interpretation concerns.
·         Make an accurate differential diagnosis between PTSD and TBI.

With its sharp focus on the nuances of trauma and recovery, The Intercorrelation of Traumatic Brain Injury and PTSD in Neuropsychological Evaluations will find a wide, interested audience among psychologists, neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, social workers, mental health counselors, undergraduate and graduate level students, and researchers. In addition, this text may be useful for those interested in psychology and neurology.

Neurogenetics: A Guide for Clinicians

 Genetics, Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neurogenetics: A Guide for Clinicians
Jun 232020
 

Progress in genetic knowledge is profoundly affecting medical practice, and no clinical specialty has more diseases associated with genetic mutations than neurology. As a more complete picture of the genes which give rise to neurological disease is obtained, trainee and practising neurologists need a guide to basic principles and the more important clinical entities with a genetic component. It is against this background that Neurogenetics: A Guide for Clinicians has been written. The book opens with coverage of genetic testing and counselling. Subsequent chapters discuss genetic factors for all the major neurological diseases, including epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinsonism and muscular dystrophies. No book in this field can hope to be fully up to date with the latest research; rather this work provides a framework on which to add new genetic discoveries. Neurogenetics: A Guide for Clinicians provides a synoptic overview for neurologists, medical geneticists and scientists working in the field.

Peripheral Neuropathy: What It Is and What You Can Do to Feel Better

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Peripheral Neuropathy: What It Is and What You Can Do to Feel Better
Jun 152020
 

Healing and symptom relief from an expert in treating this debilitating and dangerous condition.

Nearly one in fifteen people―that’s 20 million people in the United States―suffers from peripheral neuropathy, or nerve damage. Caused by such conditions as diabetes, cancer, vitamin deficiencies, and kidney disease as well as certain drugs and toxins, neuropathy brings numbness, tingling, and burning in the feet, legs, and fingertips. Neuropathy can be more than uncomfortable―it can be disabling: people whose fingertips are numb may find it hard to button clothing and complete other everyday tasks. Neuropathy is often dangerous, as well: people who cannot feel their feet are more likely to stumble and fall, and they may not notice injuries that need medical attention.

Dr. Janice F. Wiesman, a neurologist with twenty years of experience helping people who have neuropathy find relief, shares her special insights into this painful and debilitating condition. With exceptional clarity, Dr. Wiesman begins by outlining the basics of nerve anatomy and function. She explains how peripheral neuropathy is diagnosed and treated, describes neuropathy’s disparate causes, and offers readers lifestyle changes that can help keep nerves healthy. A useful glossary defines terms, patient stories offer real-world experiences, and illustrations provide a visual key to the condition. A detailed resources section points the reader to reliable web sites and organizations that offer more help.

Concentrating on the most common types of neuropathy, Dr. Wiesman provides hope, help, and comfort to patients, families, and caregivers.

The Single-Neuron Theory: Closing in on the Neural Correlate of Consciousness

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Single-Neuron Theory: Closing in on the Neural Correlate of Consciousness
Jun 152020
 

This book presents an engaging account of a provocative new theory which explores how our brain generates conscious experience and where this occurs. It suggests that conscious experience happens not at the whole brain level but at the level of individual nerve cells. The notion that the brain as a whole is sentient is an illusion created by the exquisite organization of the individually conscious neurons. Despite appearances to the contrary, conscious behavior that seems to be the product of a single macroscopic mind is actually the integrated output of a chorus of microscopic minds, each associated with an individual neuron. The result is a theory that revolutionizes our conception of who and what we are.
