There are both common and uncommon case presentations and each case is accompanied by a literature review and pearls to improve your practice. The book improves fundamental DBS techniques as well as expands the skills necessary for troubleshooting more difficult presentations. The case-based problem-solving approach makes this a fun and practical read.
Broad in scope and meticulous in detail, these two volumes encompass the third edition of this textbook for neurodevelopmental pediatrics. Written by physician experts, these volumes discuss the epidemiology, etiology, assessment, and treatment of a range of neurodevelopmental disabilities in infants and children. Volume I offers an extensive discussion of the scientific basis, etiologies, assessment, and practice issues for neurodevelopmental disabilities. Volume II explores a broad range of specific disorders describing their effects from infancy through adolescence and explaining the latest assessment and intervention strategies for each. This edition emphasizes the training needs of people entering pediatrics programs in neurodevelopmental disabilities. The contents of each volume have been expanded to provide more coverage of emerging topics. Specific changes include a separate section on autism and separate discussions of learning disorders and attention disorders.
Degeneration and Regeneration in the Nervous System brings together an international team of contributors to produce a series of critical reviews appraising key papers in the field. The pace of research on brain and spinal cord injury quickened considerably in the last ten years and there is much that is new and important that is covered in this book. However, there is still a long way to go before our knowledge will explain fully why the central nervous system has such a limited capacity for regeneration, and before experimental solutions can be applied to the patient. With emphasis on actual and therapeutic importance of the work reviewed, Degeneration and Regeneration in the Nervous System is a useful overview for graduate students, their teachers and researchers working in this field.
Dementia represents a major public health challenge for the world with over 100 million people likely to be affected by 2050. A large body of professionals is active in diagnosing, treating, and caring for people with dementia, and research is expanding. Many of these specialists find it hard to keep up to date in all aspects of dementia. This book helps solve that problem. The new edition has been updated and revised to reflect recent advances in this fast-moving field.
First published in 1990, this indispensable volume brings together authoritative, up-to-date, critical accounts of the present status of positron emission tomography (PET) in the study of movement disorders both in terms of the basic science relevant to PET and the clinical science related to the study of specific disease processes. For better understanding, it includes a review of the basic principles of PET and tracer kinetics. It also reviews clinical studies concerning Parkinson's and Huntington's disease, as well as some of the less common movement disorders such as progressive supranuclear palsy, olivopontocerebellar atrophy, and dystonia. Throughout the text, it emphasizes PET as a tool for the quantitative measurement of meaningful biochemical and physiological processes. This state-of-the-art work provides a perspective concerning the degree to which PET studies have advanced knowledge and the future role anticipated for PET. All clinical and basic researchers interested in functional imaging with PET and movement disorders will find this book an absolute must.
Cognitive impairment, through Alzheimer's disease or other related forms of dementia, is a serious concern for afflicted individuals and their caregivers. Understanding patients' mental states and combatting social stigmas are important considerations in caring for cognitively impaired individuals. Technology is playing an increasing role in the lives of the elderly. One of the most prevalent developments for the aging population is the use of technological innovations for intervention and treatment of individuals with mental impairments. Neurocognitive Disorders: Breakthroughs in Research and Practice examines the treatment, diagnosis, prevention, and therapeutic and technological interventions of neurodegenerative disorders. It also describes programs and strategies that professional and family caregivers can implement to engage and improve the quality of life of persons suffering from cognitive impairment. Highlighting a range of topics such as dementia, subjective wellbeing, and cognitive decline, this publication is an ideal reference source for speech pathologists, social workers, occupational therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, pediatricians, researchers, clinicians, and academicians seeking coverage on neurocognitive disorder identification and strategies for clinician support and therapies.
