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.

Beginning with a comprehensive background on the underlying neural control of gait and mobility in humans and physiological control of balance, the book then covers analysis methods and techniques for laboratory, clinic or remote patient assessment.It then examines how gait, mobility and balance are impacted by musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardio-respiratory conditions. Lastly, it discusses future directions and provides recommendations for future studies. Combining the expertise of engineers and clinicians, this book takes a multidisciplinary approach to show how and why gait, balance and mobility can be used to tackle important clinical questions for various conditions.

Agricultural Water Management in Africa: Lessons Learned and Future Directions provides an overview of the status of irrigation development and AWM practices and technologies in Africa and the global south. In addition, it provides guidelines, scenarios, and investment plans to guide the prioritization and operationalization of irrigation development and AWM under climate change. The African Union (AU) is driving investment and improvement in agricultural water management and transformation in Africa through the operationalization of the AU Irrigation Development and Agricultural Water Management in Africa (AU-IDAWM).The AU-IDAWM provides a framework that identifies four development pathways for enhanced agricultural water management practices across Africa. The pathways are as follows: (1) Pathway 1: Improved water control and watershed management in rain-fed farming, (2) Pathway 2: Farmer-led Irrigation Development (FLID), (3) Pathway 3: Irrigation scheme development and modernization, and (4) Pathway 4: Unconventional water use for irrigation.
