Visions The Inspirational Journeys of Epilepsy Advocates

Author: Linda, M.Ed (University of Massachusetts Boston) Sudlesky Format: Hardback Release Date: 10/01/2020

Visions: The Inspirational Journeys of Epilepsy Advocates contains the stories of 50 people who have answered the call to advocate on behalf of those with epilepsy. They are people with epilepsy or members of their community, motivated to make a positive impact through education and awareness, empowerment, fundraising, healthcare and research, and organizational advocacy. Shining a light on well-known issues as well as rare forms of epilepsy and SUDEP (Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy), these advocates depict their journeys through both prose and photographs. Along with stories that depict the advocates' journeys, photographs show these advocates and their work in action. Visions: The Inspirational Journeys of Epilepsy Advocates empowers people affected by epilepsy and inspires continued advocacy for what has been a misunderstood and underfunded neurological disorder.

Cognitive Changes and the Aging Brain

Cognitive Changes and the Aging Brain

Author: Kenneth M. (University of Florida) Heilman Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/12/2019

This book describes the changes in the brain and in cognitive functions that occur with aging in the absence of a neurological, psychiatric, or medical disease. It discusses aging-related changes in many brain functions, including memory, language, sensory perception, motor function, creativity, attention, executive functions, emotions and mood. The neural mechanisms that may account for specific aging-related changes in cognition, perception and behavior are explored, as well as the means by which aging-related cognitive decrements can be managed and possibly ameliorated. Consequently, this book will be of value to clinicians, including neurologists, psychiatrists, geriatricians, primary care physicians, psychologists and speech-language pathologists. In addition, researchers and graduate students who want to learn about the aging brain will find this an indispensable guide.

Handbook of Pediatric Epilepsy

Handbook of Pediatric Epilepsy

Author: David Dredge Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/12/2019

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.

Neurocritical Care Informatics Translating Raw Data into Bedside Action

Neurocritical Care Informatics Translating Raw Data into Bedside Action

Author: Michael De Georgia Format: Hardback Release Date: 05/12/2019

Health care in the twenty-first century requires intensive use of technology in order to acquire and analyze data and manage and disseminate information. No area is more data intensive than the neurointensive care unit. Despite the massive amount of data, however, providers often lack interpretable and actionable information. This book reviews the concepts underlying the emerging field of neurocritical care informatics, with a focus on integrated data acquisition, linear and nonlinear processing, and innovative visualization in the ICU. Subjects addressed in individual chapters are thus wide ranging and encompassing, for example, multimodal and continuous EEG monitoring and data integration, display of data in the ICU, patient-centered clinical decision support, optimization of collaboration and workflow, and progress towards an integrated medical environment . All of the nine chapters have been written by international thought leaders in the field.

Neurology and Religion

Neurology and Religion

Author: Alasdair (University of Cambridge) Coles Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/11/2019
