Living with Epilepsy

Living with Epilepsy

Author: Sallie Baxendale Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/01/2021

Encephalitis is an under recognised and under researched condition. Its sudden onset and diverse long lasting effects mean that the illness challenges people's understanding and coping resources. This book combines scholarly research and professional insights into encephalitis with 'the insider perspective' in the stories of those directly affected by the condition. The narrative approach shows how supporting people to tell their own story of their neurological condition can really help in their understanding of the experience. This unique book will be of huge importance to any professional involved in the care of someone with a brain injury, and the individuals and families touched by encephalitis.

Working with MEG

Working with MEG

Author: Gavin Perry Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/01/2021

First published 1984. In a provocative study, this book argues that the problems posed by Shelley's notoriously difficult style must be understood in relation to his ambivalence towards language itself as an artistic medium - the tension between the potential of language to mirror emotional experience and the recognition of it's inevitable limitations. Through an exposition of Shelley's idea of language, as reflected in his theoretical writings and individual poems, this book makes a strong case for his artistic worth. A definitive introduction to Shelley, useful for both scholars and newcomers, this book will be interest to students of literature.

Psychiatry Review and Board Preparation

Psychiatry Review and Board Preparation

There are currently no books available for psychiatry boards candidates that address the recent changes brought about by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. More specifically, this is the first book that targets the clinical vignette section of the board examination. This is also the first psychiatry test preparation book that, apart from having multiple choice questions in psychiatry, also includes similar questions on the neurology subsection of the examination.

Grand Mal

Grand Mal

Author: Robert V. Dodge Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/12/2020

After developing epilepsy as an adult, Robert Dodge experienced increasingly dangerous seizures and was seen by specialists on five continents. His firsthand account of adapting to life with epilepsy begins with an overview of this often misunderstood neurological disorder--still attributed to demonic possession in some parts of the world--and recounts his struggle as his seizures became life-threatening. Dodge describes his treatments and their side effects, including four ineffective surgeries that removed an eighth of his brain, and the personal challenges of social stigma.

Handbook of Pediatric Epilepsy

Handbook of Pediatric Epilepsy

Author: David Dredge Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 24/12/2020

Epilepsy is the most common neurological problem affecting children and adolescents, with an incidence rate of 1-2%. Diagnosing epilepsy in children is often complicated by age-dependent manifestations which can differ greatly from seizure disorders seen in adults. Thus, effective treatment and management depends on clinicians to establish an accurate diagnosis and choose appropriate therapy based on the likelihood of clinical benefit. Handbook of Pediatric Epilepsy will be a concise overview of seizures in infants, children, and adolescents, including a discussion of common types of seizure disorders, treatment options, recent drug developments, and evidence-based disease management guidelines.

Guided Self-Rehabilitation Contract in Spastic Paresis

Guided Self-Rehabilitation Contract in Spastic Paresis

Author: Jean-Michel Gracies Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/12/2020

This book is an informative guide for both the patient and therapist, and provides a series of exercises that target the most important muscles for those with spastic paresis. Actively practicing the exercises prescribed in this self-rehabilitation manual will allow the patient to see continued improvement in their muscle functioning. Spastic paresis is the consequence of a central nervous system disorder such as a stroke, traumatic brain or spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, or a tumor of the nervous system, conditions that may have occurred in childhood or adulthood. In spastic paresis two problems coexist: the word 'paresis' means that when the brain sends a command to a muscle to contract, this order is incompletely received by the muscle; the word 'spastic' indicates that at the same time muscles cannot relax normally and have a tendency to be spontaneously overactive. A daily program of prolonged stretching and an intensive motor training program using unassisted large amplitude rapid alternating movements is recommended to gradually increase brain command effectiveness.

The Importance of Photosensitivity for Epilepsy

The Importance of Photosensitivity for Epilepsy

Author: Dorothee Kasteleijn-Nolst Trenite Format: Hardback Release Date: 17/12/2020

This book offers a detailed account of all aspects of photosensitive epilepsy, including genetic testing, functional imaging (fMRI, MEG), pharmacological studies, animal studies, classification based on the occurrence of photoparoxysmal responses (PPRs) in different epilepsy syndromes, and the available prevention and treatment options. In addition, the comorbidity of and overlap between migraine and epilepsy are discussed. Informative case histories with EEG examples and a helpful glossary are included. In epilepsy, the term photosensitivity is used both for epileptic seizures triggered by flashing or flickering light and for epileptiform discharges evoked by intermittent photic stimulation (IPS) during an EEG recording. Most patients with a clear history of visually induced seizures will show epileptiform EEG discharges during IPS (PPRs). As epileptiform discharges can be evoked in photosensitive patients at any time, without triggering seizures, they can be considered a useful surrogate marker of the necessity and efficacy of epilepsy treatment. This book will serve as an ideal guide to the subject for pediatricians, (pediatric) neurologists, epileptologists, (child) psychiatrists, clinical geneticists, neuropsychologists, neuropharmacologists, occupational therapists, and basic scientists.

Neuro-Oncology for the Clinical Neurologist

Neuro-Oncology for the Clinical Neurologist

Author: Roy E. Strowd Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/12/2020

In the growing field of neuro-oncology, the past few years have witnessed rapid advances in tumor classification, treatment modalities, and the role of neurologists and neuro-oncologists. Neuro-Oncology for the Clinical Neurologist is a first-of-its-kind resource that focuses on patient-clinical scenarios relevant to the practicing neurologist-bringing you up to date with everything from basic principles and neuro-oncology imaging consults to neurologic complications of radiation, systemic, and immune-based therapies, and much more. Focuses on the clinical management of patients typically encountered by neurologists and neurology trainees. Provides clinically relevant updates in five key areas of neuro-oncology: primary CNS tumors, brain and leptomeningeal metastases, inherited tumor syndromes of the nervous system (e.g. neurofibromatosis), paraneoplastic and immune-mediated neurological complications of cancer, and neurological complications of cancer treatments. Includes a summary of clinical pearls and a reference list of clinical cases. Anchors each chapter with patient cases and clinical scenarios, provides evidence-based discussion, and explains patient management. Enhanced eBook version included with purchase. Your enhanced eBook allows you to access all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.
