    The aim of this new edition is to present information about neurological disorders in a structured and succinct way, following a "trickle down" principle: beginning with overviews and then moving on to specific disease categories. The latter address clinical features (i.e., information accessed by history-taking and physical examination), investigations, differential diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. Cross-references to the Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) database have been given where relevant. --Preface excerpt.

    The atomic structures of macromolecules provide the key to understanding how life works. Aaron Klug led the way in the development of methods for solving such structures and is one of the pioneers of structural molecular biology. He was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1982 for his work. Illuminating both his personal life and scientific achievements, this unique biography begins with Klug's youth in Durban and his studies at Johannesburg, Cape Town and then Trinity College, Cambridge. Holmes proceeds to explore Klug's career from his work on the structure of viruses with Rosalind Franklin at Birkbeck College, London to his time as Director of the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology (LMB) in Cambridge and as President of the Royal Society. Drawing on their long-term collaboration, interviews and unique access to Klug's archives, Holmes provides a fascinating account of an innovative man and his place in the history of structural molecular biology.

    This book describes 83 theories of behaviour change, identified by an expert panel of psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists and economists as relevant to designing interventions. For each theory, the book provides a brief summary, a list of its component constructs, a more extended description and a network analysis to show its links with other theories in the book. It considers the role of theory in understanding behaviour change and its application to designing and evaluating interventions.

    In this book a team of leading experts come together to provide a comprehensive overview of modern imaging of the abdomen and pelvis, with detailed sections on both gastrointestinal and genitourinary imaging. Each chapter has an identical structure and focuses on a particular organ or organ system, allowing the reader to approach the field one topic at a time. Indications for a variety of imaging techniques and examination protocols are clearly described, and the imaging features of normal anatomy and pathologic entities are depicted in an abundance of high-quality images. Care is taken to consider all recent technical developments and new indications, and the diagnostic performance of different imaging modalities is carefully compared. It is anticipated that this book will come to be regarded as the standard work of reference on abdominal and pelvic radiology.

    Abdominal Ultrasound for Surgeons provides a comprehensive guide to the use of ultrasonography in surgical practice of abdominal diseases. The content is divided into three major sections focusing on basic principles of ultrasound, ultrasound anatomy and pathology of the abdomen, and employment of ultrasound of the abdomen in surgical practice. A final section is dedicated to the logistics of incorporating ultrasound into a surgical practice. The first section provides an introduction to the principles of ultrasonography focusing on ultrasound physics, equipment, and instrumentation. A detailed approach to the various scanning methods and image interpretation is demonstrated with illustrations, images, and video. The second section focuses on ultrasound anatomy of the abdomen. Each chapter demonstrates the normal and abnormal ultrasound anatomy of specific abdominal organ or organ systems (abdominal wall, liver, pancreas, biliary, stomach, anorectum, retroperitoneum, vascular) with illustrations and images. The current status and technique of endoscopic ultrasound of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tracks is addressed in this section. The third section provides a state-of-the-art review of the status of each major application of abdominal ultrasound in surgery. Topics range from trauma ultrasound and laparoscopic staging to techniques in ultrasound guidance and three-dimensional targeting. This section provides a comprehensive review of the employment of interventional, intraoperative, laparoscopic, transabdominal and endoscopic ultrasound. The fourth and last section addresses the practice aspects of incorporation of ultrasound into a surgical practice. Abdominal Ultrasound for Surgeons will serve as a very useful resource and guide for surgeons and students with little to some experience in ultrasound, including practicing surgeons, surgical fellows, and surgical residents.

    "Beyond simulation and algorithm development, many developers increasingly use MATLAB even for product deployment in computationally heavy fields. This often demands that MATLAB codes run faster by leveraging the distributed parallelism of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). While MATLAB successfully provides high-level functions as a simulation tool for rapid prototyping, the underlying details and knowledge needed for utilizing GPUs make MATLAB users hesitate to step into it. Accelerating MATLAB with GPUs offers a primer on bridging this gap. Starting with the basics, setting up MATLAB for CUDA (in Windows, Linux and Mac OS X) and profiling, it then guides users through advanced topics such as CUDA libraries. The authors share their experience developing algorithms using MATLAB, C++ and GPUs for huge datasets, modifying MATLAB codes to better utilize the computational power of GPUs, and integrating them into commercial software products. Throughout the book, they demonstrate many example codes that can be used as templates of C-MEX and CUDA codes for readers' projects. Download example codes from the publisher's website: http://booksite.elsevier.com/9780124080805/ Shows how to accelerate MATLAB codes through the GPU for parallel processing, with minimal hardware knowledge -- Explains the related background on hardware, architecture and programming for ease of use -- Provides simple worked examples of MATLAB and CUDA C codes as well as templates that can be reused in real-world projects."--Provided by publisher.

    This book is the first major work that addresses a core question in biomedical research: the question of acceptable risk. The acceptable level of risks is regulated by the requirement of proportionality in biomedical research law, which state that the risk and burden to the participant must be in proportion to potential benefits to the participant, society or science. This investigation addresses research on healthy volunteers, children, vulnerable subjects, and includes placebo controlled clinical trials.

    This book provides a state-of-the-art look at the applied biomechanics of accidental injury and prevention. The editors, Drs. Narayan Yoganandan, Alan M. Nahum and John W. Melvin are recognized international leaders and researchers in injury biomechanics, prevention and trauma medicine. They have assembled renowned researchers as authors for 29 chapters to cover individual aspects of human injury assessment and prevention. This third edition is thoroughly revised and expanded with new chapters in different fields. Topics covered address automotive, aviation, military and other environments. Field data collection; injury coding/scaling; injury epidemiology; mechanisms of injury; human tolerance to injury; simulations using experimental, complex computational models (finite element modeling) and statistical processes; anthropomorphic test device design, development and validation for crashworthiness applications in topics cited above; and current regulations are covered. Risk functions and injury criteria for various body regions are included. Adult and pediatric populations are addressed. The exhaustive list of references in many areas along with the latest developments is valuable to all those involved or intend to pursue this important topic on human injury biomechanics and prevention. The expanded edition will interest a variety of scholars and professionals including physicians, biomedical researchers in many disciplines, basic scientists, attorneys and jurists involved in accidental injury cases, and governmental bodies. It is hoped that this book will foster multidisciplinary collaborations by medical and engineering researchers, and academicians and practicing physicians for injury assessment and prevention and stimulate more applied research, education and training in the field of accidental-injury causation and prevention.

    "A guide to the strange and often illogical world of neural function, 'The accidental mind' shows how the brain is not an optimized, general-purpose problem-solving machine, but rather a weird agglomeration of ad-hoc solutions that have been piled on through millions of years of evolutionary history. Moreover Linden tells us how the constraints of evolved brain design have ultimately led to almost every transcendent human foible : our long childhoods, our extensive memory capacity, our search for love and long-term relationships, our need to create compelling narrative, and ultimately, the universal cultural impulse to create both religious and scientific explanations. With forays into evolutionary biology, this analysis of mental function answers some of our most common questions about how we've come to be who we are." --book jacket.

    The predisposition to many diseases is strongly influenced by the genome of an individual. However, the association between the genome and most diseases is not fully understood, so there is an ongoing effort to characterize these associations. One way to characterize disease-genome associations is by studying the familial and ancestral origin of individuals in the context of disease. This kind of study relies on the fact that individuals with shared origins tend to have genomes and phenotypes that are similar to one another. Detailed information regarding familial and ancestral origin is often unknown, however, it can be inferred computationally by examining the genome. Therefore, it is important that we have accurate methods to infer this information in order to facilitate disease-genome associations. In this dissertation, I describe the contributions I have made to accurately inferring the ancestry and relatedness of individuals based on their genomes. First, I describe my work on ALLOY, a method to infer the ancestral origin of segments of the genome based on a factorial HMM. Next, I present PARENTE, a method to infer which individuals in a group are related to one another by detecting genomic segments that are identical-by-descent (IBD) using an embedded likelihood ratio test. Finally, I present PARENTE2, an extension of PARENTE that incorporates linkage disequilibrium information and results in significantly higher accuracy.

    Nearly a million anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries occur each year worldwide, causing long-term problems in the knee joint. This textbook examines the short- and long-term impacts of ACL injuries on the basis of hundreds of published studies. Risk factors for such injuries are explored using data from hypothesis-driven investigations, and possible causes of the higher risk of noncontact ACL injuries in female athletes are analyzed. Neuromuscular training programs shown to reduce the rate of these injuries in female athletes are described in step-by-step detail with the aid of numerous color photographs and video demonstrations. In addition, detailed descriptions are provided for rehabilitation programs to be used after ACL reconstruction in order to reduce the risk of a future injury.

    Dermatologists commonly treat acne, which affects 40 to 50 million Americans each year and about 85 percent of all patients at some point in their lives. Dermatologists, primary care doctors, and pediatricians see these patients every day in practice. It is important to treat the skin effectively not only to reduce the risk of physical scarring, but also to address the negative psychosocial impact this disease carries. Improving the skin can improve self-confidence, interpersonal relationships, and performance in school or at work. Acneiform Eruptions in Dermatology is a practical, full-color guide to the differential diagnosis of acne vulgaris and the treatment of acne-like conditions. It is organized into sections by subtype of condition (e.g., infections, genetic syndromes, medication-caused) and includes a section of variants of acne that may be misdiagnosed. Within the sections, individual chapters discuss each variant of the condition and begin with a helpful bulleted summary of its defining clinical features. Extensive color clinical images appear throughout the book.

    In 2014, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) analyzed coverage of cancer drugs in the health insurance marketplaces created by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and found that transparency of coverage and cost-sharing requirements were insufficient to allow cancer patients to choose the best plan for their needs. In this updated analysis, we found that coverage transparency has improved somewhat since 2014, but significant barriers remain for cancer patients. To address these barriers, we provide nine recommendations to states and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to increase transparency of coverage and cost-sharing, ensure adequate access to medically necessary drugs via an exceptions process, make cost-sharing more predictable and affordable for patients, and monitor the marketplace for evidence of discrimination against persons with high-cost conditions such as cancer.

    The purpose of the The Active Female: Health Issues Throughout the Lifespan, 2nd Edition is twofold: (1) to increase the awareness of wellness and fitness issues for active females and their family members; and (2) to provide an avenue for medical practitioners, allied health professionals, health educators, and certified individuals in sports medicine to gain critical, updated knowledge of a field specific to active females. Part I of the book offers a foundation to help the reader understand the interrelationship among body image concerns, the female reproductive cycle, and musculoskeletal anatomy/physiology of females that makes their health risks and concerns unique. Reproductive health is discussed by a prominent researcher in reproduction/endocrinology. An overview of the Female Athlete Triad which is a syndrome of three interrelated conditions (isordered eating, menstrual disturbances and bone loss) is presented in Part II. Physicians and certified professionals in sports medicine discuss the individual components of the triad, relating not only to the athletic female but also to the recreationally active woman throughout the lifespan. In Part III, Prevention and management of common musculoskeletal injuries is addressed by a female orthopedic surgeon who sub-specializes in treating female athletes. Finally, appropriate exercise and nutritional guidelines for active females are discussed in Parts IV-V of the book by certified professionals and licensed physicians in sports medicine. An invaluable addition to the literature, The Active Female: Health Issues Throughout the Lifespan, 2nd Edition will be of great interest to physicians, allied health care practitioners, medical/other wellness educators, and students who are interested in advancing women's health issues. Sports medicine specialists, family practitioners, gynecologists, team physicians, residents in sports medicine, athletic trainers, health educators, nurses, physicians assistants, physical therapists, sport psychologists, counselors, athletic trainers, and other members of the sports medicine team should also find this title of significant interest.

    Active Shooter events are becoming increasingly more common, and while there have been recommendations on how to respond since 2008, these guidelines focused on schools, government, and business settings. In January of 2014, the HPH SCC released "Active Shooter Planning and Response in a Healthcare Setting". That draft document was the first comprehensive guidance written for healthcare facilities to prevent, respond to, and recover from an active shooter event. This updated document expands upon the initial draft document to include law enforcement tactics and integrated medical and mental health response.

    "The Chinese are known to have practiced acupuncture for approximately 2,000 years. Designed specifically for health care practitioners, this book demystifies acupuncture and explains it in anatomical terms. New emphasis is made to differentiate traditional acupuncture in Oriental medicine from scientific acupuncture, which is based entirely on medical sciences. This edition is completely updated and presents the most current research. New material includes information on how to quantify pain and a new way to define acute and chronic pain"--Provided by publisher.

    Neglected finger injuries may lead to chronic lesions that often have detrimental consequences for the practice of a ball sport, whether at a recreational level or at the top athlete level. The initial injury management is crucial. Depending on the type and the severity of the lesions, different people may get involved: the players themselves or their entourage, physiotherapists, club doctors, emergency physicians, family doctors, sports doctors or hand surgeons. Treatment is usually conservative: the long fingers require rapid mobilization to prevent stiffness and contrary to that, the thumb requires stability. Surgery may be necessary to reach these goals especially for athletes, because of the demands of their sport. Chronic lesions are also in part related to repeated trauma, requiring specialized long-term multidisciplinary treatment. They can often lead to the end of a sporting career, but also may limit the functionality of the fingers at the time of conversion.

    This practical guide provides the reader with answers to important clinically relevant questions regarding the evaluation and management of acute kidney injury (AKI). All aspects of critical care nephrology are covered, from pathophysiology and diagnosis to prevention and treatment. The questions considered relate to a wide range of issues, such as: How do I diagnose AKI? How can I protect the kidney in clinical practice? How do I manage patients with AKI? When should I initiate and how do I perform renal replacement therapy (RTT)? Which type of RTT is most appropriate for my patient? Should I give specific nutrients? In addition to providing practical guidelines and treatment algorithms, the book includes calculators for continuous RRT and anticoagulant dosing. The authors are internationally renowned experts in the fields of Intensive Care Medicine and Nephrology, and all contributions are written in a clear and concise style and have been peer reviewed. Acute Nephrology for the Critical Care Physician will serve as a very useful source for intensivists, internists, anesthesiologists, and nephrologists involved in the management and treatment of critically ill patients at risk of or affected by AKI.

    Neural plasticity is high during developmental critical periods, then declines by adulthood. Here by acutely disrupting PirB function at different ages, we show that Paired immunoglobulin like receptor B (PirB) actively restricts plasticity both during and after the critical periopd. Chapter 1 introduces ocular dominance (OD) plasticity as a model of circuit and synaptic change, and presents a review of the literature on the study of mechanisms of OD plasticity, critical period timing, and manipulations that can alter plasticity later in life. Chapter 2 presents an overview of the methodological approaches used. PirB function was disrupted with temporal precision via either a conditional PirB allele or by minipump infusion of a soluble PirB ectodomain into mouse visual cortex. Chapter 3 details the effects of disrupting PirB function on plasticity in healthy animals. OD plasticity is enhanced not only during the critical period, but also when PirB function is disrupted in adulthood. The effects of adult deletion can occur even when PirB is only lost in excitatory neurons of the forebrain. Acute blockade of PirB for 10 days after the close of the critical period increases spine density on apical and basolateral dendrites of Layer 5 pyramidal neurons. Chapter 4 presents a proof of concept for therapeutic disruption of PirB function in cases of neurological dysfunction and disease. Long term monocular deprivation (LTMD) during the critical period leads to a lasting loss of vision in the deprived eye and to a decrease in dendritic spine density that does not recover even with subsequent binocular vision. However, acute blockade of PirB following LTMD allows for full recovery of spine density. MeCP2308/y mice, a mouse model of Rett Syndrome (a syndromic autism), were found to have increased MHC Class I expression and a concurrent loss of OD plasticity during the critical period, which can be rescued by acute blockade of PirB. Taken together, these results imply that mechanisms for enhanced structural and functional plasticity are present in adult visual cortex but are actively repressed by PirB. By removing negative regulators such as PirB, we show that it is possible to engage these endogenous mechanisms to facilitate recovery from otherwise irreversible effects of dysfunctional development. Our observations suggest that similar manipulations may be useful in other situations where restoring synaptic plasticity and increasing spine density have therapeutic value.

    Organismic evolution involves both selective and neutral forces, although their relative contributions are often unknown. This thesis proposes novel statistical methods for analyzing genetic data from a variety of organisms, including yeast, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and humans. The chapters of this thesis provide complimentary perspectives on the relative roles of selection and neutrality, from the molecular to the population level, and present various statistical tools for genetic data analysis. Chapter 2 proposes a maximum-likelihood based method with which to classify and identify interactions, or epistasis, between pairs of genes. Chapter 3 details a study of genetic data from Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolated from human Aboriginal Canadian communities; our analyses suggest that the bacterium spread to these communities via the Canadian fur trade in the 18th and 19th centuries. Chapter 4 discusses the detection of signatures of natural selection in the genomes of 12 diverse African human populations, and proposes novel considerations for identifying biological functions under selection and for comparing signals of selection between populations. Finally, Chapter 5 details the inference of the genetic basis and evolutionary history of light skin pigmentation and short stature in the genetically diverse [not equal to sign] Khomani Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert of South Africa, believed to be one of the world's most ancient human populations. These chapters emphasize that a more complete understanding of the evolutionary history of humans and other organisms requires not only the consideration of neutral and selective processes, but also both phenotypic and genetic information. The statistical methods and approaches presented in the following chapters have the potential to improve inferences of natural selection and demography from genetic data, as well as provide insight into the relative roles of both.

    When developing new drugs, Phase I and II trials are commonly conducted to determine the dose of the new treatment in preparation for the subsequent confirmatory Phase III trial. However, because these early-phase trials usually do not have large enough sample sizes to decide which dosage level or treatment regimen is the best, several of them may arise as candidates for the confirmatory Phase III trial. Conventional fixed sample size designs that carry out all the treatment arms of interest are obviously expensive. Therefore, the pharmaceutical industry is increasingly interested in adaptive designs that can use information acquired during the course of the trial to update certain of the design features. In this thesis we explore several existing designs and discuss their pros and cons. We then propose one that shares the flexibility of Bayesian adaptive designs, while still being able to maintain the frequentist type I error probability. We develop an asymptotic theory for efficient outcome-adaptive randomization schemes and optimal stopping rules. Our approach consists of developing asymptotic lower bounds for the expected sample sizes from the treatment arms and the control arm, and using generalized sequential likelihood ratio procedures to achieve these bounds. These allow us to allocate patients and study resources efficiently by using outcome-adaptive randomization schemes, or by arm suspension/selection if fixed randomization is used. We also derive an adaptive test with a p-value that can be evaluated by Monte Carlo simulation based on an ordering scheme of the sample space. We then show that the approach can also be applied to the closely related problem of multi-stage testing of multiple hypotheses.

    This dissertation studies mechanisms that mediate inhibitory and excitatory synaptic transmission in the healthy brain and in animal models of stroke and epilepsy. Stroke is a major cause of disability yet lacks pharmacotherapies for recovery (Donnan et al., 2008). During the repair phase, spontaneous cortical circuit plasticity and reorganization adjacent to the stroke site (peri-infarct) promote functional recovery (Carmichael, 2006; Dijkhuizen et al., 2001; Murphy and Corbett, 2009; Nudo et al., 1996). Elucidating mechanisms that target these endogenous brain repair processes could lead to new therapeutics with a broad treatment window. Inhibiting the post stroke increase in tonic (extrasynaptic) GABA signaling during the repair phase was reported to enhance functional recovery in mice, suggesting that GABA plays an important function in modulating brain repair (Clarkson et al., 2010). While tonic GABA appears to suppress brain repair after stroke, the role of phasic (synaptic) GABA during the repair phase is unknown. In Chapter 2, we report a post-synaptic increase in phasic GABA signaling within the peri-infarct cortex that is specific to layer 5 pyramidal neurons; we measured increased numbers of alpha-1 receptor subunit containing GABAergic synapses detected using array tomography, and an associated increased efficacy of spontaneous and miniature inhibitory post-synaptic currents in pyramidal neurons. In contrast to the reported effects of tonic inhibition, enhancing phasic GABA signaling in the recovery phase using zolpidem, an alpha-1 subunit positive allosteric modulator (Crestani et al., 2000), improved behavioral recovery. These data identify a novel role for phasic GABA signaling in brain repair, indicate zolpidem's potential to improve recovery, and underscore the necessity to distinguish the role of tonic and phasic inhibition in stroke recovery. Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is the most common form of adult seizure disorder and is often associated with drug refractory epilepsy (Wiebe, 2000). GABAARs are thought to play a key role in the pathophysiology of many types of epilepsy, including TLE, and are the target site of benzodiazepines, commonly used as antiepileptic medications (Noebels et al., 2012a; Gonzalez and Brooks-Kayal, 2011). Previous studies have shown dentate granule cells display an increased pharmacological response to the central benzodiazepine receptor (CBR) antagonist flumazenil (FLZ) after status epilepticus (SE) in an animal model of temporal lobe epilepsy. It has been previously reported that in slices taken from pilocarpine-induced epileptic rats, hippocampal dentate granule cells demonstrate a FLZ induced reduction in mIPSC half width. This is in contrast to control animals, where FLZ application has no effect on dentate granule cell mIPSC kinetics. The mechanism(s) by which FLZ reduces mIPSC half width in SE tissue is not known, but one hypothesis is that an endogenous compound active at the CBR may be upregulated after SE. However, in Chapter 3 I performed preliminary experiments in animals with SE and did not find a consistent reduction in mIPSC parameters after SE previously reported (Leroy et al., 2004). My results demonstrate that FLZ is not acting as a pure negative allosteric modulator (NAM), but instead may act occasionally as a NAM and predominantly as a positive allosteric modulator (PAM) or that NAMs are expressed after seizures and actually weaken IPSCs. These experiments suggest that a small subset of dentate granule cells respond to FLZ with varying response profiles. Synaptic transmission requires a continuous supply of neurotransmitter for release. Although most types of neurons use direct reuptake to recycle released neurotransmitters, evidence indicates that glutamatergic synapses rely predominantly on astrocytes for generation and recycling of glutamate (Hertz, 1979). Although biochemical studies suggest that excitatory neurons are metabolically coupled with astrocytes to generate the glutamate necessary to maintain glutamatergic neurotransmission, direct electrophysiological evidence is lacking. In fact, a requirement for the cycle has only been demonstrated during epileptiform activity, a disease setting in which glutamate release is greatly increased (Bacci et al., 2002; Otsuki et al., 2005; Tani et al., 2010). The large distance between cell bodies and axon terminals limits the contribution of somatic sources to the pool of glutamate available for synaptic release and predicts that glutamine-glutamate cycle is synaptically localized. In Chapter 4, we investigated neurotransmitter release from isolated nerve terminals in brain slices by transecting hippocampal Schaffer collaterals and cortical layer I axons. Stimulating with alternating periods of high frequency (20 Hz) and rest (0.2 Hz), we identified an activity-dependent reduction in synaptic efficacy that correlated with reduced glutamate release. This was enhanced by inhibition of astrocytic glutamine synthetase and reversed or prevented by exogenous glutamine. Importantly, this activity dependence was also revealed with an in vivo derived natural stimulus both at network and cellular levels. These data provide direct electrophysiological evidence that an astrocyte-dependent glutamate-glutamine cycle is required to maintain active neurotransmission at excitatory terminals.

    "Preface External-beam radiotherapy has long been vexed by the simple fact that patients can (and do) move during the delivery of radiation. The most elegant and forward-looking solution to this reality is to actively adapt the radiation delivery process to the patient's natural movements. Recent advances in imaging and beam delivery technologies have now made this solution a practical reality. The purpose of this book is to present to researchers and clinical practitioners in radiation therapy an overview of the current and prospective state of the art in motion-adaptive radiation therapy. It presents technical reviews of each of the contributing elements of a motion-adaptive system (including target detection and tracking, beam adaptation, and patient realignment), discusses treatment planning issues that arise when the patient and internal target are mobile, describes several integrated motion-adaptive systems that are in clinical use or at advanced stages of development, and concludes with a review of the system control functions that must be an essential part of any therapy device that operates in a near-autonomous manner with limited human interaction. From these chapters, the reader will hopefully gain not only an understanding of the technical aspects and capabilities of motion adaptation but also practical clinical insights into planning and carrying out various types of motion-adaptive radiotherapy treatment"--Provided by publisher.

    Myelin sheaths, specialized segments of oligodendrocyte plasma membranes in the central nervous system, facilitate fast, saltatory conduction of action potentials down axons. Myelination of the central nervous system requires the generation of functionally mature oligodendrocytes from oligodendrocyte precursor cells. Changes to the fine structure of myelin in a neural circuit are expected to affect conduction velocity of action potentials. Recent evidence from humans and animal models suggests that myelination may be sensitive to experiences during development and adulthood, and that varying levels of neuronal activity may underlie these experience-dependent changes in myelin and myelin-forming cells, perhaps selectively instructing myelination of an active neural circuit. In this thesis, I present work using optogenetic stimulation of premotor cortex in awake, behaving mice to demonstrate that neuronal activity elicits a mitogenic response of neural and oligodendrocyte precursor cells, promotes oligodendrogenesis and increases myelination within the deep layers of the premotor cortex and subcortical white matter. Neuronal activity-regulated oligodendrogenesis and myelination is associated with improved motor function of the corresponding limb. Oligodendrogenesis and myelination appear necessary for the observed functional improvement, as epigenetic blockade of oligodendrocyte differentiation and myelin changes prevents the activity-regulated behavioral improvement. A deeper understanding of adaptive myelination may provide insights into diseases involving damage and dysregulation of myelin and myelin-forming cells.

    The central problem in the study of addiction is to explain why people repeatedly behave in ways they know are bad for them. For much of the previous century and until the present day, the majority of scientific and medical attempts to solve this problem were couched in terms of involuntary behaviour; if people behave in ways they do not want, then this must be because the behaviour is beyond their control and outside the realm of choice. An opposing tradition, which finds current support among scientists and scholars as well as members of the general public, is that so-called addictive behavior reflects an ordinary choice just like any other and that the concept of addiction is a myth. The editors and authors of this book tend to take neither view. There has been an increasing recognition in recent literature on addiction that restricting possible conceptions of it to either of these extreme positions is unhelpful and is retarding progress on understanding the nature of addiction and what could be done about it.This book contains a range of views from philosophy, neuroscience, psychiatry, psychology and the law on what exactly this middle ground between free choice and no choice consists of and what its implications are for theory, practice and policy on addiction. The result amounts to a profound change in our thinking on addiction and how its devastating consequences can be ameliorated. Addiction and Choice is a thought provoking new volume for all those with an interest in this global issue.

    Despite the powerful effects of social and behavioral factors on health, development, and longevity, US health policy has largely ignored them. The United States spends far more money per capita on medical services than do other nations, while spending less on social services. Residents of nations that have higher ratios of spending on social services to spending on health-care services have better health and live longer. The relative underinvestment in social services helps to explain why US health indicators lag behind those of many countries. The best available evidence suggests that a health policy framework addressing social and behavioral determinants of health would achieve better population health, less inequality, and lower costs than our current policies.

    "While there is a wealth of published information on addiction medicine, the psychological aspects of alcohol abuse, and behavioral medicine with regard to addiction, virtually none of the existing resources were written with the primary care provider in mind. Addressing Unhealthy Alcohol Use in Primary Care is a handy reference for primary care clinicians who are confronted by patients with these problems daily, and who wish to successfully address these issues in their practice. Focusing on the literature and science relevant to practicing providers, this book covers the range of interventions appropriate for this setting. Topics include assessment, brief counseling interventions, pharmacotherapy, referrals to both specialty care and Alcoholics Anonymous (and other self-help programs), psychiatric comorbidity and other drug use, and other information specific to the needs of the primary care clinician. The vast majority of people with health risks and consequences related to alcohol use receive little to no attention from healthcare, despite the fact that alcohol is a leading cause of early preventable death. This book is a guide to identifying and addressing unhealthy alcohol use in hopes of improving the lives of patients."--publisher's website

    Poor adherence to therapy is one of the main obstacles to treatment effectiveness in schizophrenia. It is the main determinant of relapse, hospitalization, symptom persistence, and poor psychosocial functioning and outcome. Adherence to treatment is affected by various factors related to the disease characteristics, to the patient him- or herself, to the treatment, and to the therapeutic relationship. Some of these factors are modifiable, and both pharmacological and non-pharmacological strategies have been developed for this purpose.This book addresses the different aspects of adherence to treatment in schizophrenia and related disorders in a systematic but easy-to-use manual format. Chapters focus on a full range of issues, including pharmacological and non-pharmacological strategies to enhance adherence and continuity of care, relevant psychological factors, the importance of the patient-doctor relationship, and the need for an alliance with other care-givers. Adherence to Antipsychotics in Schizophrenia will be an invaluable asset for all who are involved in the care of patients with schizophrenia.

    Adhesion molecules are a family of proteins located on the cell surface and are involved in cell-to-cell or cell-extracellular matrix binding. They have a role in maintaining the cellular integrity of tissues and the functional viability of organs. In many diseases the normative features of adhesion molecules are perturbed. Thus, understanding how adhesion molecules behave in health and disease is a key step in the advancement of science and health in general. In the first part of the hook, chapters cover the structure and classification of adhesion molecules, immunohistochemical localization, junctional and inflammatory adhesion molecules and molecular imaging. The other four parts of the book cover adhesion molecules in relation to signalling pathways, gene expression, arginine, stem cells, neutrophil migration, leukocytes, decompression sickness, ischemia reperfusion injury, diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, weight loss, hypoxia, kidney disease, smoking, osteoprotegerin, tumors, biointormatics, high-throughput technologies, chemotherapy, hematopoiesis, lipoproteins, fatty acids, atrial fibrillation and heart disease, brain and dementia. The book is an essential book for research scientists, pathologists, molecular biologists, biochemists or cellular biochemists, clinicians, health care professionals, general practitioners as well as those interested in disease in general.

    The field of adipose tissue biology has been expanding at a very rapid pace in the last few years. Numerous advances have been made since publication of the first edition of this book, in terms of basic adipocyte biology, understanding of the determinants of obesity, distribution of body fat and weight loss, as well as the mechanisms linking excess adiposity to various co-morbidities. Adipose Tissue and Adipokines in Health and Disease, Second Edition contains updated chapters from the previous volume but as the field has evolved, some areas covered in the first edition have been refocused to address the new knowledge. The volume is divided in four sections: the first two deal with basic adipose tissue and adipokine biology, while the last two address the problem of obesity and alterations in adipose tissue function from an epidemiological and clinical standpoint. The chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up to date scientific information. Adipose Tissue and Adipokines in Health and Disease, Second Edition is a useful resource for physicians interested in adipose tissue biology and basic scientists who want to know more about applied aspects of the field. The book targets endocrinologists, residents and fellows, internists, nutritionists and general practitioners who are exposed to an ever-expanding obese population.

    "This first edition of the textbook “Adrenocortical Carcinoma: Basic Sciences and Clinical Concepts” provides a concise compilation of relevant data advancing our current understanding of this rare cancer. Chapters are dedicated to various aspects of both the basic biology and the clinical science relating to adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC). Expert clinicians introduce the reader to current state-of-the-art clinical care of patients with ACC. As a considerable body of knowledge on ACC has accumulated over the last decades, expert scientists have authored additional sections that serve as a reference source for the experienced researcher as well as an introduction for the trainee in the laboratory or clinic. Clinical topics span the epidemiology, diagnosis and therapy of ACC. Scientific topics areas span the pathology and pathophysiology of ACC with a special focus on experimental models of adrenocortical tumors and recent advances in the genetic aspects and signaling pathways in ACC. The content of this book was compiled and edited with the intent of facilitating the translation of knowledge into future diagnostic and therapeutic tools that will ultimately improve patient care."--Publisher's website.

    This volume gives an overview on the currently debated ethical issues regarding advance directives from an international perspective. It focuses on a wider understanding of the known and widely accepted concept of patient self-determination for future situations. Although advance directives have been widely discussed since the 1980s, the ethical bases of advance directives still remain a matter of heated debates. The book aims to contribute to these controversial debates by integrating fundamental ethical issues on advance directives with practical matters of their implementation. Cultural, national and professional differences in how advance directives are understood by health care professions and by patients, as well as in laws and regulations, are pinpointed.

    "The probability for exposure to damaging radiation, toxic chemicals in the environment and adverse biological agents has increased exponentially today. The more frequent and faster travel that we experience today also escalates the risk of contraction and transmission of potentially deadly infections. This has created a very real and escalating risk for injuries and deaths. This is accentuated in the military and medical staff that is more frequently exposed to radiological, chemical, and biological agents in their normal working environment. Understanding the mechanisms whereby these toxic agents inflict damage to our bodies is essential to prepare us for these challenges. Much of the damage is inflicted through the generation of free radicals and non-radical oxidants which then act through oxidative mechanisms to injury the body. This volume will discuss the damage caused by these radiological, chemical, and biological environmental stressors, the mechanisms through which the damage can occur and the novel strategies that can be used to reduce the injury inflicted by these toxic compounds. Using basic and clinical research approaches, the contents of this book discuss new ideas for the development of bioactive products and environmental approaches to lessen or negate the biological damage inflicted by these noxious compounds."--Publisher's website.

    In this book, leading international specialists in the field join forces to discuss topics, issues, and approaches that are of key importance in the optimal treatment of lumbar degenerative disk disease. The coverage is wide ranging, from current understanding of physiopathology and genetics and modern imaging techniques through to the diverse minimally invasive, non-fusion, and fusion surgical techniques. Detailed attention is drawn to the most important aspects to be considered when approaching the patient and making treatment decisions. The role of conservative management is appraised, and surgical techniques and their indications are carefully described. Emphasis is placed on the importance of sagittal balance for treatment success. Among the various other subjects covered are psychosocial issues, legal aspects, outcome evaluation, and the relative merits of evidence-based medicine and individual experience. In the concluding section, some of the top specialists from across the world reflect on the lessons that they have learned during lifetimes in spinal surgery. Advanced Concepts in Lumbar Degenerative Disk Disease is intended as the definitive book on this important subject. It will be an instructive and fascinating source of information for all spine surgeons and other spine care providers.

    The ability to precisely modify the genome with high efficiency in a directed manner is dependent on generating and exploiting a double-strand break in DNA. The tools available to generate double-strand breaks include the recombinases and resolvases, the phage integrases, the homing endonucleases, zinc finger nucleases, transcription activator-like effector nucleases, and the CRISPR/Cas9 system, the most recently developed tool. These tools allow for in-depth studies of the function of genes and genome structure, the generation of organisms bearing economically important bio-synthetic pathways, and the development of novel gene and cell therapies for addressing previously untreatable diseases. Taking full advantage of each tool and knowing when to use each one requires a thorough understanding of how the tool functions. For most of the genome engineering toolkit, this understanding has been achieved. The CRISPR/Cas9 system, however, has been assumed to function in the same manner as the zinc finger and transcription activator-like effector nucleases despite generating blunt-end double-strand breaks rather than staggered breaks. This difference is important to understanding how Cas9-mediated double-strand breaks are repaired, and, thus, how best to exploit these breaks for genome engineering. This thesis illustrates the importance understanding how each genome engineering tool functions in developing advantageous methods for gene and cell therapies.

    This book bridges gap between the practicing community of surgeons and the surgical innovators, and it provides a foundation for all classic and new techniques in minimally invasive colorectal surgery. It provides tips and tricks that allow the user to move up the learning curve, manage difficult scenarios, overcome challenges, increase the utilization of minimal invasive techniques and decrease the conversion to open surgery. By enhancing the surgical tool box, the surgeon will be able to progress from the novice to the master. Rather than describing operative procedures, which may be very biased by an individual author, the guide provides alternative building blocks of various difficulty for different procedures, thereby allowing the surgeon to tailored surgery to patient and surgeon's own comfort level and experience. Advanced Techniques in Minimally Invasive and Robotic Colorectal Surgery is an inspirational guide for the innovator of the future. This text allows surgeons of all levels to better adapt to inevitable changes in future techniques. Advanced Techniques in Minimally Invasive and Robotic Colorectal Surgery is of great value to general surgeons, colon and rectal surgeons, minimally invasive surgeons as well as residents and fellows.

Additional chapters focus on methodology as well as new technologies and instrumentation. This volume provides readers with a comprehensive and informative manual that will allow them to appreciate mass spectrometry and proteomic research but also to initiate and improve their own work. Thus the book acts as a technical guide but also a conceptual guide to the newest information in this exciting field. Mass spectrometry is the central tool used in proteomic research today and is rapidly becoming indispensable to the biomedical scientist. With the completion of the human genome project and the genomic revolution, the proteomic revolution has followed closely behind. Understanding the human proteome has become critical to basic and clinical biomedical research and holds the promise of providing comprehensive understanding of human physiological processes. In addition, proteomics and mass spectrometry are bringing unprecedented biomarker discovery and are helping to personalize medicine"--Publisher's description.

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a versatile imaging tool that can be used to detect changes in brain hemodynamics that accompany neuronal activity. This ability to observe both anatomy and the structures that participate in specific functions is often referred to as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Echo planar imaging (EPI) is the most widely used data acquisition method for fMRI. Functional images are often distorted because EPI is highly sensitive to field inhomogeneities, eddy currents, and gradient delays. These distortions often lead to image misregistration, and this is an impediment to correctly interpreting functional studies, and to neurosurgical planning. Many methods have been developed to address this. However, none yields anatomical and functional images that may be directly overlaid onto each other with no post-processing. This dissertation demonstrates that automatic, inherent self co-registration is achieved when optimized flyback EPI with echo time shifting (ETS) is used for both functional and anatomical images. fMRI experiments validate the proposed method, and the result is high-quality functional and high-resolution anatomical images that are inherently self co-registered. EPI acquisitions are also prone to timing and phase errors that give rise to image ghosting. ETS is an effective ghost correction method in EPI. Although ETS corrects for ghosting in a robust, non-iterative, and automatic manner, it does so at the expense of increasing total scan time. This dissertation proposes a simple, yet effective scheme to increase the efficiency of ETS by acquiring partial echoes during the idle wait times present in ETS. Using the proposed technique, higher resolution images are acquired when total scan time is fixed. Alternately, shorter scan times are possible when the in-plane resolution is fixed. Equations that predict the expected improvement in resolution are derived and shown to be accurate through simulations and experiments. In vivo images obtained using conventional ETS and the proposed method show that the time savings obtained with the proposed method do not result in any visible degradation in image quality. Signal changes caused by cardiac pulsation and respiratory fluctuation are also a major confound in fMRI. These time-locked signal changes, also referred to as "physiological noise, " decrease the sensitivity of fMRI to neuronally-induced signal fluctuations. To date, no method exists that compensates for these detrimental effects in 3D fMRI acquisitions. This dissertation presents a novel algorithm that compensates for physiological noise in 3D echo-planar fMRI. The proposed method utilizes composite property mapping and efficient root-solving to estimate physiologically-induced signal fluctuations in 3D k-space data. These signal fluctuations are subsequently regressed from k-space data. Results show that the estimated signal fluctuations have significant power in the cardiac and respiratory frequency bands. Further, resting-state fMRI experiments show an increase in the number of activated voxels when the proposed compensation algorithm is employed. This is accompanied by an increase in the average z-score of activated voxels, and a more Gaussian distributed voxel time-course. In conclusion, this dissertation describes advances in data acquisition and post- processing in 3D fMRI that are easy to implement. Further, promising experimental results suggest the efficacy of all the proposed methods.

    Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is becoming an increasingly valuable technology for breast cancer detection, especially for women at high risk for the disease. Stanford Hospital alone performed approximately 1,000 breast MRIs last year. This demand and need to increase specificity of breast MRI motivates improving current breast MR protocols, as well as exploring new applications of MR technology to breast imaging. Most clinical breast MR exams are performed at a 1.5T field strength. 3T scanners, however, are becoming more prevalent in the clinical setting and thus the breast MR protocol needs to be tuned accordingly. The first project includes measurements of T1 and T2 of breast fat and glandular tissue at 1.5T and 3T and the corresponding recommendation for altering the TR and TE for 3T breast imaging. The beating heart posterior to the breast often produces artifacts in breast MR images. The second project is a cylindrical saturation method that reduces unwanted signal from the heart while avoiding signal loss from the breast tissue of interest. Detecting tumor oxygenation non-invasively may give insight on tumor differentiation, predict susceptibility to antiangiogenic therapeutics, and monitor chemotherapeutics. The third project introduces the application of BOLD contrast imaging, a technique usually applied in functional brain MR imaging for characterizing tumor oxygenation in the breast.

    "At present there are a growing number of biomolecules under investigation to understand their potential role as cancer biomarker for diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic purposes. Intriguingly, the state of art on cancer biomarkers research shows interesting and promising results together to clamorous failures. Also from a clinical point of view, there are contradictory results on routine clinical use of the present cancer biomarkers. Some patients may be simply monitored in their course by a periodic blood sample, but sometimes this monitoring shows dramatic limits. A lot of patients show serious and extensive relapses without significant change in serum concentrations of biomarkers tested. Often the physician who should utilize these biomarker does not entirely know their limits and the total potential applications as well and sometimes this knowledge is influenced by economical and marketing strategies. This limited and "polluted" knowledge may have dramatic consequences for patient. The aim of this book is to diffuse all aspects of cancer biomarkers, from their biochemical peculiarities to all clinical implications by passing through their physiology and pathophysiology. This critical approach towards old and new cancer biomarkers should foster a deepened and useful understanding of the diagnostic and prognostic index of these fundamental parameters of laboratory medicine and in the same time facilitating the research of new and more sensitive-specific signals of the cancer cell proliferation"--Back cover.

    This volume presents the MD Anderson experience in providing care and services to the rapidly growing population of cancer survivors, which is currently estimated to be 12 million in the United States and more than 25 million worldwide. As cancer survival rates have increased, it has slowly become clear that the challenges faced by people with cancer do not end with treatment but simply change. This book aims to assist community oncologists, physicians, and their staff, who care for the vast majority of cancer survivors, by disseminating models of surveillance for disease recurrence, screening for second primary cancers, education regarding potential late effects of treatment, and psychosocial counseling. These models have proven valuable to cancer survivors who receive care at MD Anderson.

    Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most common leukemia in the Western world. CLL has a highly varied clinical course. While advances in CLL therapy are noted, many patients still succumb to this illness. Like most progress in medicine, solid advances in the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of CLL are rooted in an in-depth understanding of the basic and translational biology of CLL. In this book, CLL experts have contributed state-of-the-art summaries of various important aspects of CLL biology and have discussed the translational implication of such findings. This book, which is directed at physicians and researchers alike, aims to educate broadly and deeply. Intentionally, the many aspects and nuances of CLL clinical care that can only really be appreciated through direct patient care are not covered here, but instead, the book presents basic aspects of CLL that underlie many of the contemporary decisions that are made in CLL research and clinical settings. We hope that this book will critically inform the community and stimulate interest in CLL, which will ultimately translate into better CLL research, prognostication and therapy, with the end goal of providing a better outlook for patients afflicted with this common leukemia.

    In recent years there has been significant attention paid on the endophytic research by various groups working within this domain. Mutualistic endophytic microbes with an emphasis on the relatively understudied fungal endophytes are the focus of this special book. Plants are associated with micro-organisms: endophytic bacteria and fungi, which live inter- and intra-cellularly without inducing pathogenic symptoms, but have active biochemical and genetic interactions with their host. Endophytes play vital roles as plant growth promoters, biocontrol agents, biosurfactant producers, enzymes and secondary metabolite producers, as well as providing a new hidden repertoire of bioactive natural products with uses in pharmaceutical, agrochemical and other biotechnological applications. The increasing interest in endophytic research generates significant progress in our understanding of the host-endophyte relationship at molecular and genetic level. The bio-prospection of microbial endophytes has led to exciting possibilities for their biotechnological application as biocontrol agent, bioactive metabolites, and other useful traits. Apart from these virtues, the microbial endophytes may be adapted to the complex metabolism of many desired molecules that can be of significant industrial applications. These microbes can be a useful alternative for sustainable solutions for ecological control of pests and diseases, and can reduce the burden of excess of chemical fertilizers for this purpose. This book is an attempt to review the recent development in the understanding of microbial endophytes and their potential biotechnological applications. This is a collection of literature authored by noted researchers having signatory status in endophytic research and summarizes the development achieved so far, and future prospects for further research in this fascinating area of research.

    Physical implementation of the memristor at industrial scale sparked the interest from various disciplines, ranging from physics, nanotechnology, electrical engineering, neuroscience, to intelligent robotics. As any promising new technology, it has raised hopes and questions; it is an extremely challenging task to live up to the high expectations and to devise revolutionary and feasible future applications for memristive devices. The possibility of gathering prominent scientists in the heart of the Silicon Valley given by the 2011 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks held in San Jose, CA, has offered us the unique opportunity of organizing a series of special events on the present status and future perspectives in neuromorphic memristor science. This book presents a selection of the remarkable contributions given by the leaders of the field and it may serve as inspiration and future reference to all researchers that want to explore the extraordinary possibilities given by this revolutionary concept.
