Meningitis is an inflammation of the meninges, the protective covering that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. Most commonly caused by a viral infection, it may also result from infection with bacteria or fungus. Bacterial meningitis is usually more severe than viral meningitis and can lead to hearing loss, learning disabilities, and brain damage. If not treated promptly, it can be deadly. This revised edition of Meningitis contains the most current information on the causes, spread, treatment, and prevention of the disease, as well as new illustrations and new case studies. Updates cover recent meningitis outbreaks, which are a persistent problem in schools and on college campuses, and a recently approved method of diagnosing meningitis more quickly.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system which can strike people in their prime with devastating impact. In recent years, researchers have begun to study the multilayered and complicated cognitive problems that are often associated with MS. But there is surprisingly little information available today for neuropsychologists and other mental health practitioners about how cognitive impairment impacts life and behavior, and how patients can manage their disease through medicine, exercise, and rehabilitation. Cognition and Behavior in Multiple Sclerosis addresses this dearth of scholarly work by offering a comprehensive analysis of the effects of multiple sclerosis (MS) on cognition. Authors survey the impact of cognitive impairment on behavioral problems, employment-related issues, and the development of neuropsychiatric disorders. Practitioners will learn to interpret MRIs and provide treatment for a wide range of symptoms and disorders including depression, fatigue, and the many challenges with daily living that patients with MS often confront. This volume also examines the broad social impact of MS, as well as cutting-edge studies showing how cognitive rehabilitation can be achieved through exercise, pharmacological treatment, online tests and mobile applications.
Clinical Supervision is a comprehensive, up-to-date scholarly resource for training and supervising mental health practitioners. It guides readers through a science-informed process of supervision that clearly delineates the competencies required for good practice. The authors have geared this integrative approach to mental health professionals who currently provide supervision in academic, training, and treatment settings as well as to students and practitioners who are studying the supervision research and theory for the first time.
Inherited metabolic movement disorders are a significant and rapidly evolving field of study, linking two subspecialty areas of childhood-onset movement disorders and inborn errors of metabolism. Increasing the chance of early recognition of inherited metabolic movement disorders can have significant therapeutic implications for patients. Containing information on new disorders of post-translational modification and autophagy and their identification and treatment, there is thorough coverage of disorders of amino acids, energy metabolism, and lysosomal storage, amongst others. This key resource explores future directions in the field including next-generation genetic sequencing and novel therapeutic approaches such as deep brain stimulation. Supplementary videos are available on Cambridge Core, accessible via the code printed inside the cover. This essential text bridges the gap in communication between experts in genetic-metabolic medicine and movement disorder neurology. With an emphasis on treatable conditions that should not be missed, this volume guides you through various disorders from a clinical, biochemical and genetic perspective.

Thus, it will serve a directly educative, as well as an informative function.
Fifty Years of Magnetoencephalography celebrates the first half century of research in and clinical applications of magnetoencephalography (MEG). It catalogs and documents its evolution as a means of imaging the ongoing activity of the brain and the activation of particular neuronal networks within it that mediate sensory motor and higher functions like language. The volume's first section looks at the discovery of MEG and its first tentative applications by three of its founders. The following sections detail the rapid progress in the development of the instrumentation necessary for recording noninvasively the magnetic signals on the head that are associated with the brain activity; improvements in the techniques for analyzing the magnetic signals and reconstructing, on their basis, the functional images of brain activity; and improvements in our understanding of the nature and significance of those signals. Subsequent sections of the book detail the main clinical applications of MEG in localizing brain areas that contain sources of epileptiform activity and areas encompassing parts of functional networks essential for motor and sensory function as well as for language that have become an essential part of planning for brain surgery in many epilepsy and tumor surgery centers around the world. In addition, several chapters describe the most current efforts aiming at expanding the utility of MEG in clinical diagnosis and theoretical research.
Because it views experiential avoidance as a central problem in a range of psychological problems, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is especially well suited to the treatment of trauma-related problems, which often present avoidance as a symptom. This is the first book to adapt ACT principles in a self-care approach readers can use to help overcome the lingering effects of traumatic events. The book helps readers learn to accept the unpleasant feelings they associate with past experiences. It also shows them why strategies that have them control these negative feelings can have severe long-term consequences, such as substance abuse and chronic anxiety - especially when the attempts at control result in the avoidance of normal activities and situations. Instead of control, the book encourages readers to develop psychological flexibility and a willingness to embrace clean painful experience that is a necessary and unavoidable part of living. By committing to live in ways that really matter to them despite painful experiences, readers move beyond problems with past trauma. In the end, they will discover that life after trauma was very much worth the bumps and scrapes they receive on the way to living it.
Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia is a rare disease with a prevalence of 1:20.000 births (ORPHA244). Understanding Dyskinesia aims to give an overview of what primary ciliary dyskinesia is, the differences in patients' clinical manifestations throughout their lives, its genetics, and diagnostic tests available for this disease. The authors present a systematic review of tardive dyskinesia, covering the clinical manifestations, epidemiology, etiology, and an update on the therapeutic approach. In addition, the acute effects of physical activity and exercise adaptation on different types of dyskinesia are assessed.
