The vagus nerve is one of the most important, yet most under-appreciated structures of the human body. It is the tenth cranial nerve innervating many of the visceral structures of the human body. It has been called the “wandering” nerve, given its ubiquitous and meandering course throughout the body. The major branch of the parasympathetic nervous system, it optimizes the body’s state of rest, relaxation and recovery and is necessary to optimize health. It is a counterbalance to the sympathetic nervous system, which regulates the body’s fight or flight response. Containing over 160,000 fibers, it has both afferent and efferent branches, providing information to the brain on the status of the body’s organs. The brain then sends signals back down the vagus nerve to optimize bodily functions. Vagus nerve stimulation is a new frontier in medicine, tapping into the body’s intrinsic capability to optimize an organ’s function, control systemic inflammation and modify diseases without drugs. The use of non-implanted vagus nerve stimulators has made it possible to move neuromodulation up the treatment continuum, and has facilitated access for clinical evaluation and treatment. Scientists now have the ability to translate the basic science into clinical practice without the need for surgical intervention. Vagus Nerve Stimulation serves as a compendium of current knowledge about stimulating the vagus nerve in many different disease states. Chapters include applications to neurologic conditions, psychiatric conditions, inflammatory conditions, metabolic disease, reperfusion injuries, long covid, cardiac disease and even optimizing performance in healthy individuals.

Neuro-oncology broadly encompasses life-threatening brain and spinal cord malignancies, including primary lesions and lesions metastasizing to the central nervous system. It is well suited for diagnosis, classification, and prognosis as well as assessing treatment response. Radiomics and Radiogenomics (R-n-R) have become two central pillars in precision medicine for neuro-oncology. Radiomics is an approach to medical imaging used to extract many quantitative imaging features using different data characterization algorithms, while Radiogenomics, which has recently emerged as a novel mechanism in neuro-oncology research, focuses on the relationship of imaging phenotype and genetics of cancer. Due to the exponential progress of different computational algorithms, AI methods are composed to advance the precision of diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in neuro-oncology. The field of radiomics has been and definitely will remain at the lead of this emerging discipline due to its efficiency in the field of neuro-oncology. Several AI approaches applied to conventional and advanced medical imaging data from the perspective of radiomics are very efficient for tasks such as survival prediction, heterogeneity analysis of cancer, pseudo progression analysis, and infiltrating tumors. Radiogenomics advances our understanding and knowledge of cancer biology, letting noninvasive sampling of the molecular atmosphere with high spatial resolution along with a systems-level understanding of causal heterogeneous molecular and cellular processes. These AI-based R-n-R tools have the potential to stratify patients into more precise initial diagnostic and therapeutic pathways and permit better dynamic treatment monitoring in this period of personalized medicine. While extremely promising, the clinical acceptance of R-n-R methods and approaches will primarily hinge on their resilience to non-standardization across imaging protocols and their capability to show reproducibility across large multi-institutional cohorts.Radiomics and Radiogenomics in Neuro-Oncology: An Artificial Intelligence Paradigm – Volume 2: Genetics and Clinical Applications provides readers with a broad and detailed framework for R-n-R approaches with AI in neuro-oncology, the description of cancer biology and genomics study of cancer, and the methods usually implemented for analyzing. Readers will also learn about the current solutions R-n-R can offer for personalized treatments of patients, limitations, and prospects. There is comprehensive coverage of information based on radiomics, radiogenomics, cancer biology, and medical image analysis viewpoints on neuro-oncology, so this in-depth coverage is divided into two Volumes. Volume 1: Radiogenomics Flow Using Artificial Intelligence provides coverage of genomics and molecular study of brain cancer, medical imaging modalities and analysis in neuro-oncology, and prognostic and predictive models using radiomics. Volume 2: Genetics and Clinical Applications provides coverage of imaging signatures for brain cancer molecular characteristics, clinical applications of R-n-R in neuro-oncology, and Machine Learning and Deep Learning AI approaches for R-n-R in neuro-oncology.

Neurobiology of Infectious Diseases covers mechanisms underlying infectious diseases. It is divided into six distinct sections, beginning with the foundations of Neuroinfection. This section includes chapters on the role microbiota-gut-brain axis and specialized blood-neuronal barriers play in neurobiology of infectious diseases. The next three sections detail various bacterial infections, parasitic infections, viral infections, and fungal infections of the central nervous system. The last section reviews the proteins and other peripheral mediators that affect the central nervous system. Internationally contributed by experts in the field this book sets the foundation of neurobiology and infectious disease.Neurobiology is the study of cells of the nervous system and the organization of these cells into functional circuits that process information and mediate behavior. Current research is vital for determining pharmaceutical and medicinal treatments for neurological disorders, psychiatric disorders and diseases.
