This practical volume is relevant as a primary reference for neurologists and other headache specialists looking for a resource on complex, acute headache management. Developments in the field are highlighted, including biologics and invasive and non-invasive neuromodulation. Chapters focus on anatomy and pathophysiology, neuroradiology, acute and chronic headaches, and clinically relevant sections on diagnosis and biases, consultation settings, placebos and nocebos, as well as the set-up of a comprehensive headache center.With a foundation based on recent developments in pathophysiology and anatomy, this volume provides an overview of headache disorders with a case-based approach.

Clinical Reasoning and Decision Making Process: Child and Adolescent Assessment and Intervention explains the clinical decision-making process, both to improve clinical decision-making and to allow clinicians to better explain and defend those decisions. Chapters describe broad classes of disorders and include a description of disorder characteristics, a clinical reasoning model for assessment and intervention, and a case study illustrating the clinical reasoning model in action. Case studies cover initial intake to intervention, including case conceptualization. Clinical insight is also presented regarding justification (reasons) for the decisions about assessment and treatment.In addition, information is provided about the theoretical, empirical, and clinical support for the diagnostic decision and intervention plan. Each chapter ends with a summary of the most salient assessment and intervention findings and their associated clinical judgments and insights.

Encyclopedia of Adolescence, Second Edition presents a comprehensive overview of the theories, methods, and empirical evidence needed to understand this critical developmental period. Split across 3 volumes, and spanning over 130 chapters, the title begins with an overview of the history of the study of adolescence and the emerging theories and tools used to study adolescent development, as well as normative changes of adolescence, encompassing a broad range of adolescent experiences. It then examines the interpersonal and socioecological contexts which are both shaped by the adolescent and play a formative role in the adolescent’s development.In conclusion, the book examines those experiences that can compromise healthy development in adolescence and the specific mental health challenges that are common or emergent during the adolescent years. This updated edition addresses identified gaps in the earlier edition, and in similar works, expanding coverage to topics that have often been overlooked but are key experiences, tasks, or contexts affecting adolescent development.

Biomarkers play an indispensable role in Alzheimer's Disease (AD) diagnosis, clinical research and clinical trials. Our understanding of AD biomarkers has been profoundly impacted by the study of Autosomal Dominant Alzheimer's Disease (ADAD). Though memory loss is the most common feature of ADAD, motor dysfunction, neuropsychiatric symptoms, and epileptiform abnormalities are present at a much higher rate in ADAD than sporadic, late-onset AD. There are over 250 known ADAD-causative variants in PSEN1, 2, and APP. This genetic heterogeneity is reflective in both biomarkers and cognitive heterogeneity across people with ADAD. Autosomal Dominant Alzheimer's Disease: A Pathophysiology Review discusses the history of ADAD and its cognitive, neuroimaging and biomarker trajectories. This book focuses how ADAD can provide a unique insight into genetically driven and sporadic forms of AD. Edited by Dr. Jasmeer Chhatwal and Dr. Eric McDade, and contributed by leading experts in the field, this book will be become the leading tool for researchers and clinicians in Alzheimer's Disease.
