New Frontiers in Pediatric Traumatic Brain Injury (American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology/Routledge Continuing Education Series) 1st Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Pediatrics  Comments Off on New Frontiers in Pediatric Traumatic Brain Injury (American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology/Routledge Continuing Education Series) 1st Edition
Jan 182021
 

New Frontiers in Pediatric Traumatic Brain Injury provides an evidence base for clinical practice specific to traumatic brain injury (TBI) sustained during childhood, with a focus on functional outcomes. It utilizes a biological-psychosocial conceptual framework consistent with the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health, which highlights that biological, psychological, and social factors all play a role in disease and children’s recovery from acquired brain injury. With its clinical perspective, it incorporates current and past research and evidence regarding advances that have occurred in outcomes, predictors, medical technology, and rehabilitation post-TBI.

This book is great resource for established and new clinicians and researchers, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows who work in the field of pediatric TBI, including psychologists, neuropsychologists, pediatricians, and psychiatrists.

The Neurobiological Basis of Suicide (Frontiers in Neuroscience Book 51)

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Neurobiological Basis of Suicide (Frontiers in Neuroscience Book 51)
Jan 142021
 

With recent studies using genetic, epigenetic, and other molecular and neurochemical approaches, a new era has begun in understanding pathophysiology of suicide. Emerging evidence suggests that neurobiological factors are not only critical in providing potential risk factors but also provide a promising approach to develop more effective treatment and prevention strategies. The Neurobiological Basis of Suicide discusses the most recent findings in suicide neurobiology.

 

 

 

Psychological, psychosocial, and cultural factors are important in determining the risk factors for suicide; however, they offer weak prediction and can be of little clinical use. Interestingly, cognitive characteristics are different among depressed suicidal and depressed nonsuicidal subjects, and could be involved in the development of suicidal behavior.

 

 

 

The characterization of the neurobiological basis of suicide is in delineating the risk factors associated with suicide. The Neurobiological Basis of Suicide focuses on how and why these neurobiological factors are crucial in the pathogenic mechanisms of suicidal behavior and how these findings can be transformed into potential therapeutic applications.

Neuromuscular Fundamentals: How Our Musculature is Controlled

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neuromuscular Fundamentals: How Our Musculature is Controlled
Jan 122021
 

This book is rather unique in its approach and coverage. The approach is essentially that of an engineering textbook, emphasizing the quantitative aspects and highlighting the fundamentals and basic concepts involved. The coverage progresses in a logical and systematic manner from the subcellular, starting with the electrophysiology of the cell membrane, then proceeding to synapses, neurons, and muscle, before considering neuronal motor ensembles and the neuromuscular system as a whole. Simple, clear, and comprehensive explanations are given throughout. After an introductory chapter on some background material in biology, biophysics, and chemical kinetics, a substantial part of the book (Chapters 2-8) necessarily covers in considerable detail the basic components and processes that underlie the electrical and associated activities of the nervous system. The remaining chapters of the book (Chapters 9-13) focus on the neuromuscular system, starting with the structure of muscle cells, the generation of force by muscular contraction, and muscle receptors. The last chapter examines aspects of the control of movement, motor learning and memory, the maintenance of posture, and locomotion, and critically examines some of the theories that have been advanced to explain how movement is controlled. The book is intended for undergraduate or graduate students in the natural sciences, mathematics, or engineering who seek a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of neuroscience and the somatomotor system, in accordance with the aforementioned objectives. The book can serve as a textbook for a one-semester course on the neuromuscular system or as a reference in a more general course on neuroscience.

 

    • Provides a thorough analytical treatment of membrane electrophysiology, starting from the first principles

 

 

 

    • Emphasizes strongly the basic and fundamental concepts throughout

 

 

 

    • Discusses thoroughly the essential features and properties of the basic constituents of the nervous system, that is, neurons and synapses, including the neuromuscular junction

 

 

 

    • Explains the main aspects of posture, locomotion, and control of movement

 

 

 

    • Includes practice problems throughout the text and a solutions manual will be available for adopting professors

Neurological Rehabilitation: Spasticity and Contractures in Clinical Practice and Research (Rehabilitation Science in Practice Series) 1st Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neurological Rehabilitation: Spasticity and Contractures in Clinical Practice and Research (Rehabilitation Science in Practice Series) 1st Edition
Jan 072021
 

This book is the first attempt at bringing together a volume of work from a range of professionals with an interest in spasticity. The framework for the definition was developed in part by the authors contributing chapters that make up this volume. The book represents the current “state-of-the-art” regarding definition, measurement, pathophysiology (all state-of-the-art summaries) and simultaneously gives clinicians guidance on clinical management. This work combines coverage of both spasticity and contractures as these two phenomena are often closely interrelated. Current researchers do not differentiate between these individual impairments and, as such, there is significant confusion in the literature. This book discusses both conditions and then separates them into their respective components. If these two conditions co-exist (which is generally the case), then the management of a patient will need to be customized to individual clinical presentation. The clinical sections of the book are all written by currently practicing, and research active, clinicians, and the earlier chapters are written by researchers currently working on spasticity. In summary, this book:

 

    • Provides information that is clinically relevant and strongly researched

 

 

 

    • Includes clinical studies covering both spasticity and contractures, which is unique

 

 

 

    • Presents editors and contributors that are world-class experts

 

 

 

    • Takes a cookbook approach to measurements in clinical studies and research

 

 

 

  • Contains extensive references that are included at the end of each chapter
