Diving into the future of neurodegenerative disorders, A Review on Diverse Neurological Disorders: Pathophysiology, Molecular Mechanisms, and Therapeutics presents an unprecedented compilation of knowledge. It embarks on a journey from the roots of mental disorders, through bacterial and fungal invasions, viral attacks, and genetic predispositions, offering a comprehensive understanding of the neurological landscape. Each chapter uncovers the mysteries behind these debilitating conditions, from the pathogenesis of central nervous system tuberculosis to the role of endocannabinoids in rabies infection. This book’s exploration extends to neuroinflammation, axonal pathology, and the intricate interplay of diet, gut microbiomes, and cognitive decline. It leaves no stone unturned in unravelling the complexities of neurodegeneration, offering a glimmer of hope through probiotics and natural bioactive compounds in preventing diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). With meticulous discussions on vitamins, micronutrients, antioxidants, and nutraceuticals, this book provides a roadmap for neuroprotection. ‘Neurological Disorders and Neurodegeneration’ is a groundbreaking resource that paves the way for future treatments and innovations, making it an essential read for professionals and enthusiasts alike.
Human Neuroanatomy is a unique resource that presents for readers the neuroanatomy of the central and peripheral nervous system together. This atlas-style reference features human brain sections with radiological correlations and original illustrations accompanying macroscopic and microscopic photographs. Chapters include a large number of illustrations in the form of photographs, Illustrations, and MR imaging, including a human brain atlas. Boxes within each chapter contain clinical information, with tables of topic summaries. Presented along with clinical approaches and analyses, this is a reference for all neuroscientists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, medical students, and all students of neuroscience.
The Electrical Fields of Consciousness: Brain Waves and Dreaming examines neuro-electrophysiology from its origins in the electrical fields of primitive organisms to its roles in the electrophysiologically defined states of human consciousness. This volume presents and cogently organizes the wide spectrum of information available as to how and why bioelectrical fields are used to define and function in supporting both life and consciousness. Integrating electrophysiology in a comprehensible manner into neuroanatomical, electromagnetic, and global platform theories of neuroconsciousness, this book brings together the wide spectrum of available data-based evidence regarding the physiology and functions of bioelectric fields and their relationship to consciousness.Chapters examine the origin and potential function of bioelectrical fields and EEG associations with conscious states, as well as the relationship between electrical fields and consciousness. Incorporating the basic science, clinical correlates, and functional potential of CNS bioelectrical fields, this book is a must-read for all working in the field of CNS electrophysiology or neuroconsciousness.
Computational and Network Modeling of Neuroimaging Data provides an authoritative and comprehensive overview of the many diverse modeling approaches that have been fruitfully applied to neuroimaging data. As neuroimaging is witnessing a massive increase in the quality and quantity of data being acquired, this book gives an accessible foundation to the field of computational neuroimaging, suitable for graduate students, academic researchers, and industry practitioners who are interested in adopting or applying model-based approaches in neuroimaging.It is widely recognized that effective interpretation and extraction of information from complex data requires quantitative modeling. However, modeling the brain comes in many diverse forms, with different research communities tackling different brain systems, different spatial and temporal scales, and different aspects of brain structure and function. This book takes a critical step towards synthesizing and integrating across different modeling approaches.
Neurological and Neurosurgical Emergencies addresses emergencies in all fields of neuroscience, including disciplines like Neurology, Neurosurgery, Neuroanaesthesia, and Neuroradiology. This volume covers neurosurgical emergencies, like hydrocephalus, brain edema, intracranial bleed, intracranial hematoma, infection, and trauma, alongside neurovascular emergencies like acute ischemic stroke, non-traumatic, aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, carotid cavernous fistula, and arteriovenous malformation.In addition, the book discusses common emergencies in neurology, including status epilepticus, refractory epilepsy, super-refractory epilepsy, and neuromuscular disorders. Beginning with neurological examination of patients through to anesthetic management of various emergencies, this book features clear images that accompany each emergency with learner-friendly features such as flow-charts, figures, text boxes, and algorithms. This book provides insights into all possible aspects of emergency management and the anesthetic management of such patients.
