Mechanisms of Disease Pathogenesis in Multiple Sclerosis summarizes our current understanding on MS and its clinical features and monitoring with available biomarkers, focusing on mechanisms that drive disease pathogenesis and their control by genetic, environmental factors and novel therapies for disease management. The book is written for neurologists, neuroimmunologists and clinical, translational and basic researchers interested in mechanisms of neurodegeneration. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease which targets the central nervous system (CNS). It is the most common cause of non-traumatic neurological disability in young adults with a prevalence of 1 in 1000 and increasing, hence the importance of this book.

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.
