    "This book is designed to meet the need for a concise, easy-to-read text on how to approach and manage patients with nail diseases. The book opens with a description of nail anatomy and physiology, followed by a review of nail symptoms, divided according to the part of the nail apparatus involved. Non-invasive and invasive tools for the diagnosis of nail disorders are then described and insights provided into their appropriate use. Subsequent chapters review the various nail diseases, covering inflammatory, infective, environmentally and auto- induced, drug-induced and neoplastic conditions as well as disorders due to systemic diseases. An additional chapter addresses nail conditions commonly seen in toenails. Informative high-quality illustrations are included for each disorder and boxes helpfully summarize the most important features, clues to diagnosis, necessary examinations, and treatments. Nail Disorders: A Practical Guide to Diagnosis and Management will be an invaluable, ready source of information for students in dermatology, clinical practitioners and podiatrists."--Publisher's website.

    Nail psoriasis is very common and causes considerable morbidity to patients. With the aid of informative illustrations, this book presents the clinical signs suggestive of nail psoriasis and describes the differential diagnosis of nail abnormalities. Newer methods of diagnosis are considered, and advice is provided on the use of severity evaluation indexes. The available treatments are extensively discussed, with information on the latest options. Selection of the appropriate treatment may be a challenge, so guidance is provided on all factors that should be taken into consideration and on choice of treatment for special categories of patient, such as children and pregnant women. Contributors have been selected from across the world, offering an international perspective on the condition. Nail Psoriasis will be an invaluable up-to-date source of information for dermatologists and will also be of interest to rheumatologists and general practitioners, given that recognition of nail signs can lead to earlier diagnosis of arthropathic disease.

    Biosensors are used for detecting biological molecules such as proteins and nucleic acids. Traditional techniques, such as Enzyme-linked Immuno-sorbent Assay (ELISA) are sensitive but require several hours to yield results and usually require attaching a fluorophore molecule to the target molecule. The creation of label-free, fast, more accurate and integrated detection devices is imperative and we are increasingly looking to the nano-world for such technology. Micro-machined biosensors that employ electrical detection are now being developed. Impedance biosensor is a class of electrical biosensors that shows promise for point-of-care and other applications due to low cost, ease of miniaturization and label-free operation. Critically important component of any bio-detection system is the core biosensor device. Here we have designed, developed, tested and optimized a nano-biosensor that is configured and fabricated using silicon process technology. Electrical nano-sensors rely on label free detection of biochemical reactions in real time. These electrical sensors can measure impedance change as an electrical 'signature' of the nucleic acid or proteins interactions via a number of different mechanisms that are determined by their specific design and geometry. These nano-sensor designs will lead to an improvement in sensitivity by increasing the signal to noise ratio which results in more accurate readings through a reduction of spurious signal generation. We have developed a nano-bridge biosensor with a depletion-mode silicon 'nano-resistor' for the detection of DNA and protein at very low concentrations. In order to achieve higher sensitivity the sensing surface area is significantly increased as well as doping profile of impurities in silicon nano-resistor is optimized.. In contrast to a conventional Si enhancement mode MOSFET, this device behaves similar to depletion mode MOSFET, thereby it is always in the "ON" state, and no threshold voltage is needed to turn it into the active sensing mode. In addition signal calibration is not required due to a linear I-Vg characteristic at low Vg. The nano-bridge design has been optimized for maximal [Delta]I/I. The linearity of the response shows that the design will allow measurement of charge induced changes over a wide range with no threshold and high signal to noise ratios. To increase sensing throughput we will flow the solution containing the target molecules over an array of such sensing structures each of which has its own integrated readout circuitry that will offer 'real-time' detection (i.e. several minutes) of un-labeled molecules without sacrificing sensitivity. These electrical nano-biosensors are much more suited for the development of affordable bio-detection platforms, because they do not require expensive labeling reagents, rely on fabrication processes well established in the semiconductor IC industry, do not need bulky, expensive optical readout systems, and more importantly, can generate data on real time. One of the most important issues in the design of these sensor devices is to achieve high signal to noise ratio in order to make them amenable to sensitive detection of biological events, molecular interactions or chemical reactions. In order to improve the sensitivity and signal to noise ratio and to address the need for high density array construction we have designed and partially tested a nano-scale sensor with spatial structure, type and signal detection principles. The nano-bridge sensor is a double-gated depletion-mode semiconductor nano-resistive sensor. The structure and fabrication of these sensors will lead to improved sensitivity and greater accuracy of DNA hybridization detection up to 10 fM.

    "This book explores the enormous diversity in social perspectives on the emergence of nanoscale sciences and technologies. It points to four nodes of interest where nano meets macro: in the making, in the public eye, in the big questions, and in the tough decisions. Each node draws attention to important lines of research and pertinent issues. The book is designed for interdisciplinary teaching, but the richness of issues and perspectives makes it of interest to all researchers, practitioners, and non-academics wanting an introduction to social perspectives on nanoscale sciences and technologies."

    Abstract: The small scale of nano-materials makes them one of the best man-made candidates to interact with biological systems at subcellular or even molecular level. It has been the focal point of the research interests to interfacing live cells with one dimensional nanostructures, such as nanowires and nanopillars. In my Phd research, I have utilized nanopillar based structures and devices to interface biological cells electrically, optically and mechanically. 1. We achieve improved electric interface between biological cells and solid state device by using arrays of vertically aligned nanopillar electrodes. Their tight attachment to the cell membrane allows us to acquire intracellular-like action potential signals non-destructively from cultured cardiomyocytes, which is responsible for various important cellular functions. 2. We demonstrate below-the-diffraction-limit observation volume in vitro and inside live cells by using vertically aligned silicon dioxide nanopillars. With a diameter much smaller than the wavelength of visible light, a transparent silicon dioxide nanopillar embedded in a nontransparent substrate restricts the propagation of light and affords evanescence wave excitation along its vertical surface. This effect creates highly-confined illumination volume that selectively excites fluorescence molecules in the vicinity of the nanopillar. We show that this nanopillar illumination can be used for in vitro single molecule detection with high fluorescence background. In addition, we demonstrate that vertical nanopillars interface tightly with live cells and function as highly localized light sources inside the cell. Furthermore, chemical modification of the nanopillar surface provides a unique way to locally recruit proteins of interest and simultaneously observe their behavior within the complex, crowded environment of the cell. 3. We engineer and fabricate vertically nanopillar arrays, and culture various types of cells atop. We study the cell growth pattern in presence of nanopillar arrays, including attachment, migration, etc. We also design patterned nanopillar arrays and utilized them to guide and control cell growth via cell-nanopillar interaction.

    "Pharmacotherapy is often limited by the inefficient activity and severe toxicity of drug molecules. Nanotechnology offers a revolutionary and definitive approach for the efficient delivery of drug molecules to non-healthy tissues and cells. This first volume of a series of two volumes analyzes the basics in the development of drug-loaded nanoplatforms, the so-called nanomedicines. Special attention is given to physicochemical engineering, pharmacokinetics, biocompatibility and biodegradability, representative nanoplatforms (based on lipids, polymers, cyclodextrins, metals, carbon, silica, iron oxides, etc.), and advanced nano-engineering strategies for passive, ligand-mediated, and/or stimuli-sensitive drug delivery and release"--Provided by publisher.

    Nasal physiology and pathophysiology is a relatively neglected area, yet without a deep knowledge of the physiology it is impossible to understand the impact of structural changes and the process of disease development or to make sound treatment decisions. With the help of numerous tables, schematic drawings, and color photographs, this book will enable the reader to understand the nasal physiology and pathophysiology in detail. All four functions of the nose -- respiration, defense, olfaction, and cosmesis -- are covered. Each chapter addresses one important aspect in an accessible way, and each is written by an acknowledged expert on the topic under consideration. The various techniques of clinical evaluation of nasal function are fully discussed, and current trends and future directions in nasal physiologic research are also explored. This book will be of value to both practicing otorhinolaryngologists and novices in the field.

    Worldwide, the application of information and communication technologies to support national health-care services is rapidly expanding and increasingly important. This is especially so at a time when all health systems face stringent economic challenges and greater demands to provide more and better care, especially to those most in need. The National eHealth Strategy Toolkit is an expert, practical guide that provides governments, their ministries and stakeholders with a solid foundation and method for the development and implementation of a national eHealth vision, action plan and monitoring framework. All countries, whatever their level of development, can adapt the Toolkit to suit their own circumstances. Representing one of the most significant collaborations in recent years between the World Health Organization and the International Telecommunication Union, the Toolkit is a landmark in understanding what eHealth is, what it can do, and why and how it should be applied to health care today.

    The Natural Anti-Gal Antibody as Foe Turned Friend in Medicine provides a comprehensive review of the natural anti-Gal antibody, which is the most abundant antibody in humans constituting ~1% of immunoglobulins and the carbohydrate antigen it recognizes, the ?-gal epitope. It discusses the discovery of this antigen/antibody system, its evolution in mammals, the pathological effects of this antibody, and its possible use in various therapies in humans. Most significantly, the book discusses microbial and regenerative therapies in which an antibody present in all humans may be harnessed as an in vivo pharmaceutical agent that enables a wide variety of therapies. Some of these therapies are described as experimental studies that are compiled in this book, other already studied therapies in the area of cancer immunotherapy are also included in this book.

    This edited volume concerns a group of devastating neurological disorders that share a common pathological mechanism, namely the aggregation and deposition of insoluble, proteinaceous lesions, termed 'amyloid'. Examples of cerebral amyloid disorders include common neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's disease-related dementia and Parkinson's disease, as well as other less prevalent conditions like Huntington's disease, cerebral amyloid angiopathy and the transmissible prion disorders. A disease-modifying therapeutic agent is still lacking for all these diseases, and there are no approved therapies that target amyloid formation directly. Nevertheless, a large and complex group of natural aromatic compounds known as polyphenols are rapidly emerging as potentially potent anti-amyloidogenic agents. This book collectively presents a considerable body of experimental and epidemiological evidence from peer-reviewed scientific publications that support a role for natural compounds and herbal extracts in the chemoprevention and therapy of amyloidogenic disorders. Each contribution is written by scientific experts in the relevant field; chapters are devoted to Mediterranean diet and olive oil phenols, traditional Chinese medicine, herbal extracts, polyphenols (with a particular emphasis on epigallocatechin-3-gallate) and bi-flavonoids, amongst others. The topic of this book is relevant to a wide audience, from academia and university students in the biological and chemical sciences, to physicians and allied health professionals, as well as people working in the nutraceutical industry.

    The processes by which the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae metabolizes carbon sources by both fermentation and respiration have been studied for more than a century. Yeast metabolism has been used both industrially, for the production of important molecules such as ethanol, and as a model for basic scientific research. Applied scientists have studied yeast metabolism to create and optimize novel metabolic phenotypes not naturally found in Saccharomyces yeasts. In parallel, basic scientists have used yeast as a model to understand fundamental processes such as evolutionary adaptation, as well as the pathways of carbon metabolism themselves. There are many unanswered questions in both of these fields, some of which I have addressed in this work. With respect to the industrial importance of yeast, I asked whether there are naturally existing Saccharomyces yeasts that can metabolize the five-carbon sugars important for lignocellulosic ethanol production (such as xylose), and, if so, what is the genetic basis for their phenotypes? Having characterized natural genetic variation in xylose metabolism, I also wanted to understand something more fundamental about how carbon metabolism can adapt, including the molecular nature of adaptations to selection on a limiting carbon source. Specifically, I asked what is the niche breadth of, and are there genetic trade-offs in, yeast that have been evolved under glucose-limitation? I have used a combination of classical genetics, physiology, and high-throughput genomics to answer these two questions. I have discovered novel xylose-utilizing Saccharomyces yeasts and have shed considerable light on the genetic basis for their phenotypes. In addition, I have discovered at least one trade-off for adaptation to limiting glucose, namely that amplification of the hexose-transporter genes HXT6 and HXT7 causes reduced fitness in carbon-rich environments. These two projects highlight two major spheres of Saccharomyces research, and they provide key answers to outstanding questions in both fields.

    This book advances biomedical innovations to address the plethora of health problems afflicting the developing world. A panoply of cultural, economic, infrastructural, and other factors prevent many interventions currently popular in the developed world from being similarly effective in the developing world. This book discusses less-traditional approaches, such as naturally based biomaterials and therapeutics, an area that has traditionally been overlooked but has also demonstrated impressive potential for health applications in recent years. This book explores precisely the kinds of applications which can enable countries like India to access more effective, inexpensive treatments while also taking more ownership of their healthcare technologies and innovations.

    "What can we learn from the genes of our closest evolutionary relatives? Neanderthal Man tells the story of geneticist Svante Pääbo's mission to answer that question, beginning with the study of DNA in Egyptian mummies in the early 1980s and culminating in his sequencing of the Neanderthal genome in 2009. From Pääbo, we learn how Neanderthal genes offer a unique window into the lives of our hominin relatives and may hold the key to unlocking the mystery of why humans survived while Neanderthals went extinct. Drawing on genetic and fossil clues, Pääbo explores what is known about the origin of modern humans and their relationship to the Neanderthals and describes the fierce debate surrounding the nature of the two species' interactions. A riveting story about a visionary researcher and the nature of scientific inquiry, Neanderthal Man offers rich insight into the fundamental question of who we are"-- Provided by publisher.

    Cell death is an essential process in development, and a major contributor to a wide range of human diseases. Three major classifications of cell death, apoptosis, autophagic cell death and necrosis, have been described for years, and the existence of many more forms of cell death is now accepted. In, Necrosis: Methods and Protocols experts in the field provide a wide range of methods and techniques for the study of necrosis in vitro and in vivo. These include methods and techniques for the analysis of necrosis in mammalian cells, characterization of alternative forms of cell death: entosis and pyroptosis, and analysis of cell death in non-mammalian model sytems and mammalian tissues, including chapters on skin, brain, and heart. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. -- Publisher website.

    In 2014, a reported $3,377m was invested in neglected disease R&D, consisting of $3,197m from repeat survey participants (called year-on-year -- YOY -- funders) and $179m from irregular survey participants. Total YOY funding for neglected disease R&D increased by $150m (up 4.9%), but this was entirely the result of significant new investment in Ebola R&D in response to the 2014 West African Ebola epidemic. Without Ebola, YOY funding for neglected disease R&D would have been essentially unchanged from 2013 (down $14m, -0.4%).

    "In a new era of global health diplomacy, the most important tool for decision-making is negotiation. Globalization is binding countries, issues and people together as never before. In the domain of public health, traditional international concerns like the spread of infectious diseases have been joined by new concerns and challenges in managing the health impacts of trade and intellectual property rights, and by new opportunities to create effective global public health agreements and programs. To address the major health crises of today and to prevent or mitigate them in the future, countries must seek collective agreement and action within and across their borders. However, the world of international negotiation is not the world in which health decision-makers reside or are most comfortable. The goal of this guide is to provide health policy-makers with practical information and negotiation tools, to help them create better international health agreements and programs. "This is the best book I know to help health professionals develop the negotiation skills necessary to meet the challenges of global health diplomacy"--Provided by publisher.

    Cranial ultrasonography is the most important, accessible, patient friendly, and cheapestneuroimaging technique on the neonatal ward. It provides important information on brain maturation in the (preterm) neonate and enables the detection of frequently occurring brain anomalies. In this second edition of Neonatal Cranial Ultrasonography, the focus is on the basics of the technique, from patient preparation through to screening strategies and the classification of abnormalities. Many new ultrasound images have been included to reflect the improvements in image quality since the first edition. Essential information is provided about both the procedure itself and the normal ultrasound anatomy. Standard technique is described and illustrated, but emphasis is also placed on the value of supplementary acoustic windows. The compact design of the book makes it an ideal and handy reference that will guide the novice but also provide useful information for the more experienced practitioner

    This book discusses the key features of normal, age-dependent neonatal head and spine ultrasonography and the application of this modality to common and rare neonatal neurologic disorders. Ultrasonography is an incredibly versatile bedside imaging tool in detecting brain and spine abnormalities in neonates, monitoring the course of these lesions, and evaluating the maturation of the neonatal brain and spine. Organized to correspond to daily bedside practice, it presents a symptom-based approach and classifies neonatal neurologic disorders at presentation. For each disorder, clinical cases are presented that explore the differential diagnoses and are accompanied by high-quality ultrasound images that depict the abnormal findings. Topics include seizures, encephalopathy, hemiparesis, apnea, microcephaly, and neonatal spine abnormalities. Neonatal Head and Spine Ultrasonography is a succinct guide to this imaging modality and is a valuable resource for pediatric radiologists, neuroradiologists, neonatologists, and pediatricians.

    Neonatology is a science in rapid evolution, and updated information is crucial for the correct and successful care of newborns and fetuses suffering from severe disorders, who until a few decades ago had no chance of survival. Written in a clear and easy-to-follow way by the most renowned experts in the field, this new textbook wants to offer to neonatologists and pediatricians a modern and complete view of the various problems and aspects of neonatology, currently one of the most complex and advanced fields of pediatrics. The volume contains comprehensive, clear and up-to-date descriptions of the current knowledge of neonatal diseases and of their pathophysiology and treatment, and provides a selection of other relevant information with an evidence-based approach. Figures and diagrams are used to improve understanding of complex problems, and references have been chosen to enable in-depth evaluation of clinical problems. The text pays particular attention to the various diagnostic and/or therapeutic procedures for which reliable guidelines are not yet available. The use of summaries, tables, and accurately selected guidelines or recommendations that will accompany the text will supply quick references and instant solutions to the concerned specialists during their daily practice.This book aims to provide the scientific community with the state of the art on neonatal care in order to avoid as much as possible, or at least limit, the tragic disabilities due to prematurity, abnormal delivery, and diseases affecting these patients. Expert pediatricians, neonatologists, obstetricians, anaesthesiologists, training doctors in these areas, as well as all child caregivers will find it this volume a fundamental tool for their activity, thanks to the schematic and practical information it offers and to the indications of clinical solutions.

    The outcomes of most viral infections are controlled by many genetic loci whose interactions are complex and difficult to predict. To characterize the genes that predispose to viral persistence, I carried out a genetic analysis of a murine susceptibility locus termed Tmevp3. Mice that carry the SJL/J-derived Tmevp3 locus become persistently infected, whereas mice carrying the B10.S-derived locus clear the infection. My investigation revealed that a long noncoding RNA, lncRNA, transcript named NeST RNA was the most polymorphic gene in the locus. I found that a spliced version of NeST RNA was abundant in T cells of SJL/J mice and not expressed in B10.S mice. To test whether expression of this lncRNA was the cause of viral persistence, I developed transgenic mice that expressed NeST RNA in B10.S mice. Indeed, NeST RNA alone was sufficient to confer viral persistence. To investigate the function of NeST RNA in T cells, I tested whether NeST regulates its neighboring genes, IL-22 and IFN-[gamma]. CD8+ T cells from mice carrying the SJL/J-Tmevp3 locus were found to produce greater amounts of IFN-[gamma], suggesting that NeST RNA might functions as an enhancer lncRNA. Indeed, transgenic expression of NeST lncRNA induced higher of IFN-[gamma] after T cell stimulation. Results from a collaborative study revealed NeST RNA functions in trans, localize to the nucleus, associates with the histone modifying complex component WDR5, and induces accumulation of histone 3 lysine 4 trimethylation (H3K4me3) at the Ifng locus. I also found that the Tmevp3 locus controls lethality from Salmonella. However, I found that in this model the SJL/J allele, which increases viral persistence, conferred decrease susceptibility for pathogenesis. As was the case in the viral susceptibility model, transgenic NeST RNA expression was sufficient to recapitulate this susceptibility phenotype. To test for any effects of NeST RNA in the inflammatory response to pathogen antigens, I carried out septic shock assays using the bacterial component LPS. I found that mice expressing NeST RNA survived more compared to the B10.S parental strain. Take together these data suggest that during immune challenge NeST RNA regulates the inflammatory response. To further analyze the effect of NeST RNA in the control of inflammation, NeST knockout mice were utilized. Deleting a 640 base pair region in the NeST promoter was found to abrogate gene expression and increase lethality to LPS sepsis. This difference in lethality coincided with larger abundances of numerous cytokines in mice lacking NeST RNA after LPS injections. However in the absence of an immune challenge, mice with an intact NeST gene showed higher basal levels of inflammatory cytokines, suggesting the basis of NeST RNA protection is a hormetic effect. Indeed, pre-treatment with low doses of LPS phenocopies the endotoxin tolerance effect of NeST RNA. Understanding how NeST RNA controls the timing and magnitude of cytokine secretion by T cells may provide new venues for therapeutic intervention to various inflammatory diseases.

    Target identification is both a critical and difficult step in the drug discovery process. A novel approach is presented here that utilizes flow cytometry to: 1) identify small molecule signaling network probes, and 2) characterize the diverse network activation states they induce. Signaling events across the network are compared to functional responses to determine the way in which each signaling node influences a given function. Nodes that accurately predict cellular functions that drive disease are promising drug targets. The approach was applied to mast cells to determine which signaling molecules best predicted the degranulation, eicosanoid release, and cytokine secretion induced by stimulation of the cells with IgE and specific antigen crosslinking. Erk and Akt phosphorylation best predicted degranulation; Erk and cJun phosphorylation best predicted eicosanoid release; and Akt phosphorylation alone best predicted cytokine secretion. The results confirmed several known aspects of mast cell IgE-dependent signaling and revealed unknown associations to be tested in future work -- notably, that the cJun pathway plays a role in eicosanoid production and that the Akt pathway is a critical integration point for transcription of most or all cytokine genes. Overall, the results suggest that Erk and Akt are the most promising targets in the IgE signaling network for development of mast cell stabilizing drugs.

    The issues of mental causation, consciousness, and free will have vexed philosophers since Plato. This book examines these unresolved issues from a neuroscientific perspective. In contrast with philosophers who use logic rather than data to argue whether mental causation or consciousness can exist given unproven first assumptions, Tse proposes that we instead listen to what neurons have to say. Because the brain must already embody a solution to the mind--body problem, why not focus on how the brain actually realizes mental causation? Tse draws on exciting recent neuroscientific data concerning how informational causation is realized in physical causation at the level of NMDA receptors, synapses, dendrites, neurons, and neuronal circuits. He argues that a particular kind of strong free will and downward mental causation are realized in rapid synaptic plasticity. Recent neurophysiological breakthroughs reveal that neurons function as criterial assessors of their inputs, which then change the criteria that will make other neurons fire in the future. Such informational causation cannot change the physical basis of information realized in the present, but it can change the physical basis of information that may be realized in the immediate future. This gets around the standard argument against free will centered on the impossibility of self-causation. Tse explores the ways that mental causation and qualia might be realized in this kind of neuronal and associated information-processing architecture, and considers the psychological and philosophical implications of having such an architecture realized in our brains.

    For many decisions, we must explicitly compare the value of two or more goods being offered. However, often decisions are not between multiple goods, but rather between a single offer and the choice to pass on that offer, such as when deciding to buy a new car, marry a significant other, or read this abstract! For these decisions the relevant comparison is between the expected benefit of the offer and its associated cost. We studied cost-benefit decisions in the macaque monkey while recording from single neurons in the orbitofrontal cortex (OFC), which has been implicated previously in decisions between competing goods. We found that the animal was sensitive to the balance of cost and benefit. That is, his willingness to accept an offer increased monotonically as we increased the benefit while keeping the cost constant. We found that the OFC represented task-relevant information--such as benefit, choice, and expected outcome--in a complex manner. These signals were mixed at the level of single neurons, but by examining the population response, we found separable ensembles of neurons that represented each of these task relevant variables. Moreover, different sets of neurons appeared to represent these signals for discrete temporal epochs within and between trials, which may correspond to distinct functional processes revealed by behavior. Taken together, we offer a novel view of how a population of neurons may collectively represent value and choice information and how that population may transform the representation dynamically over time.

    Across the human neuroimaging literature, there is general consensus that the primary somatosensory cortex, secondary somatosensory cortex, anterior cingulate cortex, insular cortex, and thalamus are activated during pain. Many other brain regions have been implicated in pain processing, including the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, primary motor cortex, and amygdala. Unfortunately, inter-study differences make it unclear which of these regions are or are not activated during pain. Furthermore, it remains unclear how the many brain regions that are activated during pain interact to distinguish stimuli that are painful from those that are not. The first study in this thesis is a meta-analysis in which we synthesizes the neuroimaging literature on pain and reveal that 14 brain regions are significantly more activated during painful than nonpainful stimulation. These 14 brain regions are the contralateral primary somatosensory cortex, contralateral primary motor cortex, contralateral anterior midcingulate cortex, contralateral supplementary motor area, ventral tegmental area, right anterior insular cortex, bilateral midinsular cortex, bilateral thalamus, bilateral secondary somatosensory cortex, and bilateral superior temporal lobe. The second and third studies in this thesis investigate two mechanisms by which neural activity in distributed brain regions might be integrated to distinguish painful from nonpainful stimulation. The second study in this thesis uses a support vector machine to distinguish painful and nonpainful stimuli based on the linear summation of neural activity across the whole brain. Using whole-brain patterns of neural activity and a support vector machine, we distinguish painful and nonpainful stimuli with 81% accuracy. These results suggest that the linear summation of activity in distributed brain regions may constitute a neural mechanism for distinguishing painful and nonpainful stimuli. Furthermore, the results demonstrate that it is possible to objectively measure pain and we discuss tasks that should be undertaken the advance this approach towards clinical use. The third study in this thesis investigates temporal correlations in neural activity as a potential mechanism of by which the brain may distinguishing painful and nonpainful stimuli. We found that the brain regions activated during pain are significantly correlated in their response to painful and nonpainful stimulation. Furthermore, we found that the brain regions activated during pain are functionally connected during rest. These results do not support the hypothesis that correlations in brain activity distinguish painful and nonpainful stimuli. Importantly however, these results demonstrate that the brain regions activated during pain comprise a resting state network, that is, they are temporally correlated at rest. Together, the studies presented here have spatially defined the distributed brain regions that are activated during pain, and suggest that these brain regions comprise a neural network in which overall activity is increased during pain.

    Moving is thought to require separate preparation and execution steps. While preparing, neural activity in primary motor and dorsal premotor cortices achieves a state specific to an upcoming action, but movements are not performed until the execution phase. In this work, we investigated the interactions between motor preparation and motor execution. We first investigated whether the preparatory state (more precisely, prepare-and-hold state) is required for movement execution using two complementary experiments. We compared monkeys' neural activity during delayed and non-delayed reaches, and in a delayed reaching task in which the target switched locations on a small percentage of trials. Neural population activity bypassed the prepare-and-hold state both in the absence of a delay and if the wrong reach was prepared. However, the initial neural response to the target was similar across behavioral conditions, regardless of whether there was a delay period. This means that there are consistent neural preparatory steps which are performed prior to movement even in the absence of a delay. This suggests that the prepare-and-hold state can be bypassed if needed, but there is a short-latency preparatory step which is performed prior to movement even without a delay. We suggest that this preparatory step may be best understood as a dynamical process rather than simply a particular, static neural state. We next examined whether motor preparation and motor generation can be run in parallel. We instructed monkeys to reach to a particular target, and occasionally switched that target to a new location shortly before the monkey began initiating his reach. We found that the amount of time required to change a reach goal tends to remain constant regardless of whether that computation is being performed online (during the execution of the initially-cued reach), or offline (prior to reach initiation). Examining neural activity during this task, we found that neural activity following a switch tends to explore dimensions which are not well-represented during the course of normal reaching. Furthermore, reaches can be initiated correctly even if their neural activity has not fully recovered from the switch, as long as neural activity in dimensions which are relevant to movement output has been corrected. This work reveals a potentially important way in which neural activity can simultaneously prepare one reach while executing another, again underscoring the view that motor preparation is itself a dynamical process which is independent of but complimentary to movement generation.

    Rapid advances in understanding neural-immune interactions have far reaching impact on research in many areas of neuroscience. It is becoming increasingly clear that neuroimmune factors modulate a wide range of brain functions and play an important role in development, normal brain function, and CNS dysfunctions, including neurodegenerative diseases, neuropsychiatric disorders and addiction. "Neural.Immune Interaction in Brain Function and Alcohol Related Disorders" integrates emerging knowledge on neural-immune interactions with related key discoveries in alcohol research to provide a comprehensive overview of neuroimmune system in brain function and behavior associated with alcohol use disorders.

    An understanding of the neural patterns available to guide plasticity in vivo is needed to bridge our knowledge of synaptic plasticity to its function in learning. I investigated the patterns of neural activity that trigger plasticity in vivo in a simple cerebellum-dependent motor learning task, adaptation of the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR), with the specific goal of determining which neurons carry the instructive signals that trigger plasticity in the circuit for the VOR. The VOR stabilizes images on the retina during head turns by using vestibular signals to generate compensatory smooth eye movements in the opposite direction of head motion. Motor learning maintains the accuracy of the VOR by modifying the gain and timing of the reflex whenever retinal image motion is persistently associated with head movements. In the laboratory, motor learning in the VOR can be acutely induced by pairing head movements with motion of a visual stimulus. Two specific hypotheses have been proposed regarding the neural signals that guide motor learning in the VOR. One suggests that learning is guided by the activity of Purkinje cells, the output neurons of the cerebellum[1]. The other hypothesis suggests that learning is guided by climbing fiber input to the Purkinje cells[2-4]. Previous experiments addressing which neurons carry instructive signals have typically used a single training condition for increasing VOR gain and a single training condition for decreasing VOR gain[5, 6]. These two training conditions each elicited Purkinje cell and climbing fiber signals that carried information about the required direction of learning, and since the patterns of neural activity were consistent with both hypotheses, data are needed to provide constraints that could discriminate between the hypotheses. The goal of my research is to provide such constraints by recording the patterns of neural activity present in Purkinje cells and climbing fibers during a broader range of visual-vestibular stimuli that induce motor learning in the VOR. I induced motor learning in the VOR by pairing head movements with complex visual stimuli. These novel behavioral manipulations elicited many different combinations of Purkinje cell and climbing fiber signals, allowing us to evaluate how each of these neural signals contributes to learning. My data demonstrated that neither instructive signals in the climbing fibers nor Purkinje cells are necessary for learning, although either signals appear to be sufficient to support learning. Additionally, the largest changes in VOR gain occurred when both signals were present, suggesting that the changes mediated by Purkinje cell-triggered mechanisms and climbing-fiber triggered mechanisms are additive in their effects at the behavioral level. These findings are evidence that motor learning in the VOR is accomplished by parallel and independent operation of climbing fiber-triggered and Purkinje cell-triggered plasticity mechanisms. If cerebellum dependent motor learning is supported by the parallel and independent operation of plasticity mechanisms, similar motor learning need not be accomplished in a stereotyped fashion, but rather similar motor learning can be achieved by engaging distinct subsets of plasticity mechanisms each under the control of a unique instructive signal.

    The ultimate purpose of the motor system is clear: it exists to control the body. However, despite the motor system being among the longest-studied brain structures, it remains unclear how -- mechanistically -- motor cortex performs this function. Here, a mechanistic approach was taken to investigate how primary motor cortex (M1) and dorsal premotor cortex (PMd) control movement. That is, the goal was to elucidate the dynamics of the motor cortex 'machine.' Monkeys were trained in reaching tasks, and neural signals were recorded from their brains as they performed them. Two broad classes of analysis were used. First, cell-by-cell analyses were combined with cell-type analyses, which permitted examining the activity patterns of excitatory and inhibitory neurons separately. Second, techniques based on dynamical systems analysis (such as dimensionality reduction) were applied, which permitted analysis of neural populations as a whole and abstraction to a somewhat higher level of system function. Three major results and a technical advance are presented. Firstly, we investigated how it is possible for an animal to hold still even as neural activity in motor cortex changes drastically during preparation for the upcoming movement. We found that, contrary to common assumptions, there does not appear to be a 'gate' comprised of high inhibition during preparation. Instead, using the dynamical systems perspective, we found that preparatory activity has a special structure such that it remains in intrinsically muscle neutral, 'iso-force' patterns. Secondly, we searched for coherent dynamics in the movement-time activity of motor cortex. We found that motor cortex appears to obey a relatively simple set of dynamics, dominated by oscillatory patterns. Moreover, the exact neural trajectory is heavily determined ('seeded') by the immediately preceding preparatory activity. In order to causally perturb these dynamics with patterned stimulation and cell-type specificity, we then developed a set of optogenetic techniques for use in primates. Finally, we investigated how the dynamics of the decision-making process are reflected in motor cortex. To do so, we combined a novel decision-making paradigm, many simultaneous neural recordings, and single-trial analytical techniques. Preliminary results are given for this final section, demonstrating the presence of vacillation in monkey decision-making. In summary, we found that preparation and movement can be understood as an oscillatory dynamical system seeded by preparatory activity that lives in an iso-force space, that inhibitory and excitatory neurons seem to play more similar roles in the dynamical system than might be expected, and that moment-by-moment processes of motor decision-making can be seen in motor cortex.

    Attention involves selecting the most relevant information from the abundance of information available in the sensory environment. When we attend to an object, neurons in the brain become more selective to processing information about the attended object at the expense of processing information about other, irrelevant objects. While the phenomenology of attention is well characterized, little is known about the mechanisms by which attention modulates neural responses to influence perception. In this thesis, I explore neural mechanisms of attention with a combination of approaches at several levels: 1) whole-brain functional imaging to characterize the spatiotemporal dynamics of forebrain networks that are engaged during attention, 2) extracellular electrophysiology in the midbrain of tranquilized barn owls to measure and characterize gamma oscillations, a prominent neural signature of attention, and 3) pharmacological techniques in a chick midbrain slice preparation to understand the cellular and circuit mechanisms involved in generating and regulating the structure of these oscillations. I conclude by describing ongoing work on developing neuromorphic (hardware) models of putative mechanisms of attention, as well as the development of a novel behavioral paradigm for rapidly and reliably measuring attention in birds. This work highlights the power of integrative and multi-level approaches for exploring the neural basis of cognitive functions, such as attention.

    "The brain sciences are influencing our understanding of human behavior as never before, from neuropsychiatry and neuroeconomics to neurotheology and neuroaesthetics. Many now believe that the brain is what makes us human, and it seems that neuroscientists are poised to become the new experts in the management of human conduct. Neuro describes the key developments--theoretical, technological, economic, and biopolitical--that have enabled the neurosciences to gain such traction outside the laboratory. It explores the ways neurobiological conceptions of personhood are influencing everything from child rearing to criminal justice, and are transforming the ways we "know ourselves" as human beings. In this emerging neuro-ontology, we are not "determined" by our neurobiology: on the contrary, it appears that we can and should seek to improve ourselves by understanding and acting on our brains. Neuro examines the implications of this emerging trend, weighing the promises against the perils, and evaluating some widely held concerns about a neurobiological "colonization" of the social and human sciences. Despite identifying many exaggerated claims and premature promises, Neuro argues that the openness provided by the new styles of thought taking shape in neuroscience, with its contemporary conceptions of the neuromolecular, plastic, and social brain, could make possible a new and productive engagement between the social and brain sciences." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

    Morphometric studies reveal that the volumes of many brain structures differ between clinical and non-clinical populations. Specifically, populations characterized by affective disturbances related to heightened emotional reactivity and diminished emotion regulation have been found to possess smaller volumes of brain structures involved in emotion reactivity and regulation. I sought to determine whether similar associations would be found between brain structure and trait emotion reactivity and regulation in healthy individuals. Specifically, I predicted that emotion reactivity, as measured by negative affect, would be negatively related to the volume of the ventral anterior cingulate cortex, insula, orbitofrontal cortex, and amygdala, and that emotion regulation, as measured by usage of expressive suppression and cognitive reappraisal, would be positively related to the volume of the dorsal and ventral anterior cingulate cortex, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, hippocampus, orbitofrontal cortex, cerebellar vermis, and anterior insula. I tested these predictions using two complementary methods, region of interest (ROI) and voxel-based morphometry (VBM). In Study 1, which used a sample of healthy adult women, trait usage of expressive suppression was correlated positively with the volume of the middle frontal gyrus and anterior insula, and negatively with ventral anterior cingulate volume. Trait usage of cognitive reappraisal was correlated positively with the volume of the bilateral dorsal anterior cingulate cortex. All of these correlations were found using both ROI and VBM methods. In Study 2, which used a more diverse sample of healthy males and females ranging in age from 10 to 22, self-reported levels of trait negative affect was correlated negatively with posterior insula volume, although this finding was not confirmed using VBM. Both ROI and VBM revealed that trait suppression usage frequency was correlated positively with right ventral anterior cingulate and anterior insula volume. The strength of the relationship between suppression and anterior insula volume increased as subject age increased. Although no ROIs were found to correlate with trait reappraisal usage frequency, VBM found that reappraisal positively correlated with gray matter clusters in the prefrontal cortex. The findings from this dissertation demonstrate that the structural alterations seen in individuals suffering from mood and anxiety disorders may not result from psychopathology per se, but may instead be on the lower end of the continuum of emotion reactivity, emotion regulation, and associated brain structure.

    This book is a concise but detailed treatise on the laryngeal nervous system. It is ideal for researchers starting work in this field in that it provides a quick update on present-day basic neurolaryngology. A brief introduction to the methodology that made recent progress possible is followed by a review of classical basic neuroanatomy and neurophysiology. Additionally, the book provides some of the most recent findings in neurolaryngology. The many illustrative figures and microscopic photographs help readers to achieve a clearer understanding of the text and ample references provide links to further reading in specific areas of the field. The book contains much general material that will be instructive even for researchers not specializing in basic neurolaryngology and will provide an essential grounding for clinicians in laryngology.

    As indicated by its title, this monograph deals chiefly with morphologically recognizable deviations from the normal anatomical condition of the human CNS. The AD-associated pathology is illustrated from its beginnings (sometimes even in childhood) to its final form, which is reached late in life. The AD process commences much earlier than the clinically recognizable phase of the disorder, and its timeline includes an extended preclinical phase. The further the pendulum swings away from the symptomatic final stages towards the early pathology, the more obvious the lesions become, although from a standpoint of severity they are more unremarkable and thus frequently overlooked during routine neuropathological assessment. For this reason, the authors deal with the hallmark lesions in the early phases of the AD process in considerable detail.

    The primary purpose of this book and its companion volume The Neuropharmacology of Nicotine Dependence is to explore the ways in which recent studies on nicotine and its role in tobacco addiction have opened our eyes to the psychopharmacological properties of this unique and fascinating drug. While the present volume considers the molecular and genetic factors which influence behavioral responses to nicotine and how these may impact on the role of nicotine in tobacco dependence, the book The Neuropharmacology of Nicotine Dependence focuses on the complex neural and psychological mechanisms that mediate nicotine dependence in experimental animal models and their relationship to tobacco addiction in humans. These volumes will provide readers with a contemporary overview of current research on nicotine psychopharmacology and its role in tobacco dependence from leaders in this field of research and will hopefully prove valuable to those who are developing their own research programmes in this important topic.

    The Neurobiology of Brain and Behavioral Development provides an overview of the process of brain development, including recent discoveries on how the brain develops. This book collates and integrates these findings, weaving the latest information with core information on the neurobiology of brain development. It focuses on cortical development, but also features discussions on how the other parts of the brain wire into the developing cerebral cortex. A systems approach is used to describe the anatomical underpinnings of behavioral development, connecting anatomical and molecular features of brain development with behavioral development. The disruptors of typical brain development are discussed in appropriate sections, as is the science of epigenetics that presents a novel and instructive approach on how experiences, both individual and intergenerational, can alter features of brain development. What distinguishes this book from others in the field is its focus on both molecular mechanisms and behavioral outcomes. This body of knowledge contributes to our understanding of the fundamentals of brain plasticity and metaplasticity, both of which are also showcased in this book.

    "Brain development, whether typical or atypical, provides the foundation for all behavior and possible psychopathology. This volume takes a comprehensive and translational approach in describing how basic neuronal patterning occurs, organizes into systems, and forms functional and inter-connected networks. The role that hormones and genes play in influencing brain development is also described. The resultant emotional, cognitive, reward, and social systems show how typical development proceeds. The second part of the book describes when the process of development goes awry. Here, a number of childhood disorders are covered. Autism, ADHD, emotional syndromes of bipolar disorder and depression, oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder, and sleep and schizophrenia are included in this volume. Written by leading experts in their respective fields, this volume will be a valuable resource to mental health professionals as well as preclinical investigators hoping to gain additional understanding about the neurobiology of the developing brain."--Publisher's website.

    "The study of how the brain processes temporal information is becoming one of the most important topics in systems, cellular, computational, and cognitive neuroscience, as well as in the physiological bases of music and language. During the last and current decade, interval timing has been intensively studied in humans and animals using increasingly sophisticated methodological approaches. The present book will bring together the latest information gathered from this exciting area of research, putting special emphasis on the neural underpinnings of time processing in behaving human and non-human primates. Thus, Neurobiology of Interval Timing will integrate for the first time the current knowledge of both animal behavior and human cognition of the passage of time in different behavioral context, including the perception and production of time intervals, as well as rhythmic activities, using different experimental and theoretical frameworks."--Publisher's description (excerpt).

    "This new volume in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology presents a comprehensive review of the fundamental science and clinical treatment of psychiatric disorders. Advances in neuroscience have allowed for dramatic advances in the understanding of psychiatric disorders and treatment. Brain disorders, such as depression and schizophrenia, are the leading cause of disability worldwide. It is estimated that over 25% of the adult population in North America are diagnosed yearly with at least one mental disorder and similar results hold for Europe. Now that neurology and psychiatry agree that all mental disorders are in fact, "brain diseases," this volume provides a foundational introduction to the science defining these disorders and details best practices for psychiatric treatment."--Publisher's website.

    This book gives an overview of the current knowledge on the most common neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal lobar degeneration, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and additional neurodegenerative diseases. Different aspects of each disease are reviewed, including clinical issues, treatments, basic discoveries (genetics and molecular biology), and translation of basic research into biomarkers for early diagnosis. In addition, emerging data indicate that neurodegeneration seems to also be present in classically non-degenerative disorders. Therefore, a chapter about overlapping mechanisms between dementias and psychiatric disorders is included, as well as a description of the role of neurodegeneration in multiple sclerosis. Neurodegenerative Diseases is aimed at clinicians, particularly those working in academic hospitals. This multidisciplinary book will also be of interest to basic researchers in medical fields.

    The economic burden of dementia was estimated as being US$ 604 billion in 2010. Now it is time for new guidelines in handling of neurodegenerative disorders. Optimistic versus Pessimistic Prognosis depends much on diagnostic and treatment approaches which healthcare will preferably adopt in the near future. Current dramatic situation can be significantly improved by the implementation of appropriate early diagnostic, targeted preventive measures and therapies tailored to the person advancing healthcare and enhancing the patient life quality. Neurodegenerative Diseases are pathologies of multi-factorial nature involving interplay of epi/genetic and environmental risk factors. Insights into molecular pathomechanisms will enable to create the most effective neuro-protective strategies and individualised treatment before manifest pathology. Utilization of the advanced integrative medical approach could enable a significant portion of population to reach the 100-year age limit remaining vibrant in excellent physical and mental health as actively contributing members of the society. The crucial role of the integrative approach by PPPM has been acknowledged as priorities by World Health Organization, United Nations and the European Union among others. Extensive efforts of international consortia are essential in the field to consolidate the accumulated expertise and to create population screening, robust diagnostic approaches, effective prevention in groups at high risk and targeted treatments. This book volume "Neurodegenerative Diseases: Integrative PPPM Approach as the Medicine of the Future" is intended to serve as a reference source for basic researchers and healthcare industry involved in the field of neurosciences with a special emphasis on mental health promotion and innovations intended to delay or even prevent neurodegenerative diseases.

    During the past decade, neuroendoscopy has undergone a variety of technological improvements, and both indications and techniques have been significantly refined. As a result, neuroendoscopy is now used in the treatment of many more patients, enabling the performance of previously unavailable operations with low complication rates and rapid patient recovery. This book presents the distilled experience of world experts in this evolving field. Current applications are explained in detail and likely future developments are identified. Among the topics discussed are the neuroendoscopic management of hydrocephalus, a wide variety of tumors, colloid and suprasellar arachnoid cysts, Chiari malformation, and craniosynostosis; the use of neuroendoscopic techniques in improving altered CSF physiology; and the status of neuroendoscopically assisted neurosurgery. In addition, the available neuroendoscopic instruments are reviewed and the results of international trials and collaborative studies, presented. This book will fully acquaint the reader with the breadth and depth of available neuroendoscopy techniques and their impressive therapeutic potential. It should serve as the reference book on neuroendoscopy for the next 10 years.

    "Neuroepidemiology in Tropical Health covers major neurological diseases of relevance in tropical settings and examines the specificities of epidemiology of neurological diseases in the context of tropical countries that face many challenges when compared to the developed world. Part One focuses on methods and their eventual specificities, and how such methods, like sampling, can be adapted for specific scenarios. Parts Two and Three discuss environmental factors and their consequences for neurology in the tropical world, as well as large geographical areas and their specificities. Finally, Part Four presents relevant neurological diseases in in-depth chapters. This invaluable information will help readers recognize the various neurological conditions presented, with the inclusion of their aetiologies and treatment in tropical areas. The book therefore fills a gap in the neuroepidemiology literature, with chapters written by an international collection of experienced authors in the field. Highlights differences and similarities between neuroepidemiology in tropical areas and temperate zones with a focus on methods and underlying factorsCovers environmental factors in the tropical world and their consequences for neurologyChapters include references (key articles, books, protocols) for additional detailed studyIncludes wide topics of neurological disease in the tropics, not only infectious diseases, but also nutrition and public health"-- Provided by publisher.

    Within the field of neuroscience, the past few decades have witnessed an exponential growth of research into the brain mechanisms underlying both normal and pathological states of consciousness in humans. The development of sophisticated imaging techniques (above all fMRI and PET) to visualize and map brain activity in vivo has opened new avenues in our understanding of the pathological processes involved in common neuropsychiatric disorders affecting consciousness, such as epilepsy, coma, vegetative states, dissociative disorders, and dementia. This book presents the state of the art in neuroimaging exploration of the brain correlates of the alterations in consciousness across these conditions, with a particular focus on the potential applications for diagnosis and management. Although the book has a practical approach and is primarily targeted at neurologists, neuroradiologists, and psychiatrists, a wide range of researchers and health care professionals will find it an essential reference that explains the significance of neuroimaging of consciousness for clinical practice.

    The main purpose of this book is to present emerging neuroimaging data in order to define the role of primary and secondary structural and hemodynamic disturbances in different phases of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and to analyze the potential of diffusion tensor MRI, tractography and CT perfusion imaging in evaluating the dynamics of TBI. The authors present a new MRI classification of brain stem and hemispheric cortical/subcortical damage localization that is of significant prognostic value. New data are provided regarding the pathogenesis and dynamics of diffuse and focal brain injuries and qualitative and quantitative changes in the brain white matter tracts. It is shown that diffuse axonal injury can be considered a clinical model of multidimensional "split brain" with commissural, association and projection fiber disorders. The book will be of interest for neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists and others with an interest in the subject.

    This book reviews the imaging features associated with selected classes of pharmaceuticals and drugs on brain, head and neck, and spine and explains the implications of the imaging findings for the neuroradiologist and the clinician. Some agents produce characteristic abnormalities with distinctive imaging features, while others have a spectrum of manifestations on imaging. Still further agents produce rather nonspecific changes on imaging, requiring a differential diagnosis. In this book, informative cases are depicted by rich images, with concise accompanying explanatory text that reviews the class of agent and the mechanism of action and discusses image interpretation and its significance.

    This book provides guidance for physicians confronted with acute neurological crises in the context of patient safety centred practice standards. It highlights how the implementation of patient safety standards in the neurointensive care unit leads to better clinical outcomes and emphasizes the importance of utilizing appropriate resources, ensuring evidence-based practice is followed. Cost effectiveness, continuous performance improvement and the creation of a non-punitive culture are also discussed. Neurointensive Care: A Clinical Guide to Patient Safety is aimed at physicians around the world caring for critically ill neurological patients either in the emergency department or intensive care unit, and may also be valuable for nurses working in these settings. Neurointensivists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, general intensivists, emergency physicians, and trainees dealing with neurological catastrophes will find this book of interest.

    Neurointervention in the Medical Specialties is a first-of-its-kind reference that serves as a bridge between the neurointerventionalist and the physicians who most frequently look to these specialists for answers to some of the most intractable problems they face. Providing background on the wide range of diseases treated through neurointervention along with the indications and alternatives to such treatments, this landmark title is grouped into four parts: an introduction to the tools and anatomical structures that are integral to the field; disease processes most often encountered by neurologists, cardiologists, and vascular surgeons; those diseases more frequently treated by neurosurgeons; and finally those diseases first seen by several other specialties including ophthalmologists and head and neck surgeons. Importantly, each chapter includes details of neurointerventional technique and case discussions that are sufficiently detailed to provide a treatment template and guidance to neurointerventionalists in training and practice. At the same time, the descriptions provide referring physicians with insight into how neurointerventional procedures are performed. Finally, there are several concluding, thought-provoking chapters that examine what new opportunities await the field of neurointervention on the horizon. Neurointervention in the Medical Specialties is a major contribution to the literature and invaluable resource for all clinicians and researchers interested in this exciting field.

    The Neurologic Diagnosis: A Practical Bedside Approach is an introductory text that simplifies the often unwieldy method of making a neurologic diagnosis. Medical students are often intimidated by a deluge of data, extensive differential diagnoses, and have no organizational structure to follow. Diagnostic techniques of general medicine are not applicable. Neurology is a unique specialty since it requires the intermediary step of an anatomic diagnosis prior to proffering a differential diagnosis. Yet the required knowledge of neuroanatomy need not be profound for the student who will specialize in any field other than neurology and neurosurgery. This text is directed to medical students and residents who will all be regularly faced with numerous patients who have neurologic symptomatology. Typical one-month neurology rotations out of four years of medical school is clearly inadequate training to make a cogent neurologic diagnosis, especially since subsequent instruction is commonly provided by upper level residents who have the same background and numerous misconceptions. This is not a comprehensive text. The emphasis in this concise and practical title is on establishing a neuroanatomic diagnosis before formulating a differential diagnosis. In addition, treatment is seldom discussed since it is likely to change radically over time. Focused and succinct, The Neurologic Diagnosis: A Practical Bedside Approach is an invaluable resource for medical students and residents interested in the practice of neurological diagnosis.

    "There is an apocryphal story of an eminent neurology professor who was asked to provide a differential diagnosis. He allegedly quipped: "I can't give you a differential diagnosis. If you wish I will give you a list of wrong diagnoses followed by the right diagnosis." Sadly, this sort of arrogance pervaded our field, particularly in the era before there were accurate diagnostic methods and effective treatments of neurological diseases. Fortunately, this sort of pomposity is now relegated to the past and remains only as an antique reminder of a type of hubris that precluded discovery and progress in diseases of the nervous system"-- Provided by publisher.

    Timely diagnosis and management of neurological diseases during pregnancy poses major therapeutic challenges to neurologists and other non-neurologist health care providers. Pregnancy is a unique period in life associated with significant hormonal and other physiologic changes in female patients, which may trigger or alter the course of neurological and psychiatric disorders. In addition, many diagnostic procedures that can be performed in non-pregnant women are prohibited during pregnancy for safety reasons. Therapeutic decisions and management of a pregnant patient with neurological disorders heavily depends on the issue of the reasonable balance between the risks of no treatment versus active treatment for the mother and her fetus. This book provides a review of the latest findings in this field, giving the neurologist and non-neurologist the information they need to determine the best treatment. Neurological disorders covered include multiple sclerosis, stroke and epilepsy. Discusses how neurological disorders should be managed in a pregnant patient Includes contributions from leading authorities.

    Neurological Syndromes: A Clinical Guide to Symptoms and Diagnosis offers a concise, invaluable resource for understanding how a group of neurologic symptoms or signs collectively characterize a disease or disorder. Intended as a quick reference guide to the better known and some less familiar syndromes of neurological interest and developed by a renowned pediatric neurologist with more than 40 years experience in treating children, adolescents, and young adults, this handy title provides a definition of each syndrome that includes diagnostic characteristics and abnormalities, a differential diagnosis, genetic considerations, and a short list of references. To those readers who can recall the name of a syndrome, the alphabetical presentation should facilitate a review of the major diagnostic characteristics. The original reference is provided for historical interest, and review articles are included to show recent advances in etiology and treatment. The index is arranged in alphabetical order of the named syndromes and also according to the involvement of various organs in addition to the nervous system. A unique contribution to the literature, Neurological Syndromes: A Clinical Guide to Symptoms and Diagnosis will be of great interest to the wide variety of clinicians treating patients with neurologic disease.

    This book teaches readers the clinical skills residents in neurology have to acquire in the course of their training, and approaches neurology like a doctor approaches a patient: first there is a chapter on how to perform an efficient neurological history according to neuroanatomical key features, then a chapter on the bedside examination, followed by chapters on differential diagnosis, diagnostic procedures and lastly, the treatment. Aims to provide readers with a personal clinical mentor. It takes them by the hand and guides them through the whole patient encounter from the history to the treatment, at each step pointing out what is essential and what is not. Extensive differential diagnostic flow charts and detailed treatment suggestions make it a perfect coat pocket reference for the wards. In addition, more than 50 unique case histories cover the entire spectrum of the field. Neurology at the Bedside is written for neurologists in training: residents as well as senior house officers. Also medical students, general practitioners and others with an interest in neurology will find invaluable information here that is difficult to look up in traditional textbooks or online references.

    For over a century, research has yielded enormous amounts of quantitative information about animal motor systems. Yet our understanding of neural control mechanisms of animal balance and locomotion remains cursory and fragmented. This book aims to change that. This is the first book on neuromechanical modeling, a tool that integrates the massive body of knowledge in computational models and complex motor behaviors to reveal the mechanisms by which these behaviors emerge. The majority of research groups working in this area have contributed chapters to this book. The book covers a wide range of topics from theoretical studies linking the organization of spinal reflex pathways and central pattern generating circuits with morphology and mechanics of the musculoskeletal system, to detailed neuromechanical models of balance and locomotor control, to analyses of nonlinear transformations of neural signals by the musculoskeletal system. This book can be used as an introductory guide to this new and exciting area of computational neuroscience research. .

    Accumulation of glia, gliosis, in various neurological disorders is not a static scar, but actively involved in pathogenesis of various neurological and psychiatric disorders, where glial cells produce both inflammatory and neurotrophic factors. These factors may play a role in neuronal damage, but also have a protective and reparative function by inducing neuroinflammation. However, definition as well as the mechanisms of neuroinflammation is not yet clear. We first define acute, chronic and non-classical neuroinflammation. Glial cells are activated by a variety of stimuli via receptors on glial cells. Toll like receptors (TLR) are one of these receptors. In response to harmful stimuli, neurons produce factors as either eat-me or help-me signals. These factors include cytokines, chemokines and damage-associated molecular pattern (DAMP). Some of them activate glial cells via TLR, and function to protect neurons or further induce neuroinflammation. Thus, the interaction between neuron-glia and glia-glia is a main feature of neuroinflammation. Glial cells communicate with other glial or neural cells via gap-junctions. The communication may also be important for the understanding of neuroinflammation. Oligodendrocytes-neurons communication may be critical in either myelination or demyelination. Damage of blood-brain barrier (BBB) is common feature of both inflammatory and degenerative neurological disorders. Thus, relation of BBB damage and functions of glial cell may also be important in the development of neuroinflammation. In this book, we focused on neuron-glia interaction of various aspects for understanding of pathophysiology of neuroinflammation in development of inflammatory as well as degenerative neurological disorders.

The L-type Ca2+ channel (LTC) CaV1.2 is the most abundant VGCC in the brain, and mis-regulation of LTCs has been linked to bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and autism spectrum disorders. However, how LTC activity is regulated in vivo is incompletely understood. Here we describe a new approach using a high throughput genome-wide screen in Drosophila to identify modulators of CaV1.2 activity. This screen uncovered two novel CaV1.2 regulating proteins, Fragile X Mental Retardation 1 (FMR1) and Speckle-type POZ protein-like (SPOPL). Using biochemistry, calcium-imaging, and electrophysiology in mammalian neurons, we show that FMR1 binds directly to CaV1.2 and regulates its surface expression, while SPOPL alters ubiquitination and electrical properties of the channel. These results reveal new regulatory pathways controlling CaV1.2 activity, and describe a generalizable approach to identifying modulators of LTC function in vivo.

    Neuronal circuits dynamically strengthen or weaken through experience-regulated processes during developmental windows of synaptic plasticity. In this thesis, I test the hypothesis that two specific Major Histocompatibility Complex Class I (MHCI) genes, H2-Kb and H2-Db, restrict cortical plasticity during both developmental and adult neurological disorders. Mice lacking H2-Kb and H2-Db (KbDb KOs) have enhanced ocular dominance plasticity and excessive cortical connectivity. In a model of the autism-spectrum disorder Rett Syndrome, developmental ocular dominance plasticity is impaired, and H2-Db expression is elevated. In an adult model of stroke called middle cerebral artery occlusion, H2-Kb and H2-Db expression is elevated in the damaged hemisphere, and expression and downstream signaling of the MHCI receptor PirB are increased. KbDb and PirB KO mice have smaller infarcted regions and better motor recovery, and PirB KOs have enhanced circuit remapping in the corticospinal tract, which could contribute to improved motor function. Together, results suggest that H2-Kb and H2-Db function to constrain plasticity in juvenile and adult cerebral cortex. Moreover, an over-expression of these two MHCIs may contribute to Rett Syndrome and impede recovery following stroke. H2-Kb and H2-Db and their receptor PirB therefore may represent important therapeutic targets for disorders typified by abnormal synaptic plasticity.

    "How the brain accomplishes many of its more complex tasks can only be properly understood via the study of neuronal network control mechanisms and the interactions among networks. Large networks can undergo major changes, resulting in substantial alterations of brain function, affecting everything from learning to the potential for epilepsy and other CNS disorders ... the volume serves to advance the understanding of how the brain carries out important tasks via networks, how these networks interact in normal brain function, major mechanisms that control network activity, and the interaction of the normal networks to produce more complex behaviors. The chapters also show how brain disorders can result from adnormal network interactions, and how therapy of these disorders can be advanced through this network approach"--Page 4 of cover.

    Phosphatases such as TNAP are fundamental in regulating cellular, and consequently numerous body functions. TNAP is a ubiquitous enzyme with a wide spectrum of substrates and specificity regulation at the cellular level and the lack of TNAP activity is a lethal condition. Recent findings of a highly specific regional, laminar and subcellular localization of TNAP in the cerebral cortex indicates that in addition to its metabolic and skeletal functions, TNAP also plays a role in regulating cerebral functions, most probably cognition. In fact, TNAP disturbance could result in complex diseases such as epilepsy, developmental retardation and Alzheimer disease. Available data suggest that, regarding brain functions, TNAP is a potentially important target of clinical research. The proposed book aims to provide an overview of our current understanding of the functions of TNAP in the brain.

    "Neuroparasitology and Tropical Neurology, a new volume in The Handbook of Clinical Neurology, provides a comprehensive and contemporary reference on parasitic infections of the human nervous system. Parasitic infections are varied and some are resolved by the host's immune system, other infections may become established even though unnoticed, and some cause severe disease and death. In our modern world, neuroparasitoses are no longer geographically isolated and these infections now appear worldwide. Outside of a very few well understood pathologies, most parasitic infections have been neglected in the neurological literature and most neurologists have never diagnosed such an infection. This volume details how, with the advent of modern neuroimaging techniques, improved diagnostic applications of molecular biology, more accurate immunodiagnosis, and minimally invasive neurosurgery, human nervous system parasitoses are now diagnosed and treated, with increasing frequency. The book is divided into six sections, and begins with an introduction to the mechanisms of infection, diagnosis, and pathology of parasitic diseases. Subsequent chapters detail protozoan diseases and a section covering each of the major classes of human-infecting helminths: nematodes (roundworms), trematodes (flukes), and cestodes (tapeworms). The final section contains chapters on other important areas of tropical clinical medicine including the neurological complications of venomous bites and tropical nutritional deficiencies. Neuroparasitology and Tropical Neurology will be of interest to neurologists, neurosurgeons and other health professionals encountering patients with parasitic infections"--Publisher's description.

    This monograph describes the progress in neuropathological HD research made during the last century, the neuropathological hallmarks of HD and their pathogenic relevance. Starting with the initial descriptions of the progressive degeneration of the striatum as one of the key events in HD, the worldwide practiced Vonsattel HD grading system of striatal neurodegeneration will be outlined. Correlating neuropathological data with results on the functional neuroanatomy of the human brain, subsequent chapters will highlight recent HD findings: the neuronal loss in the cerebral neo-and allocortex, the neurodegeneration of select thalamic nuclei, the affection of the cerebellar cortex and nuclei, the involvement of select brainstem nuclei, as well as the pathophysiological relevance of these pathologies for the clinical picture of HD. Finally, the potential pathophysiological role of neuronal huntingtin aggregations and the most important and enduring challenges of neuropathological HD research are discussed.

    "Preface: Over the past four decades, the number of peptides identified as neurotransmitters or neuromodulators in the central and peripheral nervous systems has significantly increased. These compounds, known as neuropeptides, have been recognized for playing an important role in the communication between cells in a variety of neuronal networks. Although, a considerable number of neuropeptides have been characterized so far, their quantity is limited compared to the number of precursor proteins that are actually found to be expressed in cells of the nervous system. Numerous studies have confirmed that neuropeptides are involved in a number of biological activities. These include modulation of brain reward, pain processing, and immune response, as well as neuroendocrine regulations, control of neurovegetative functions, and trophic effects. In recent years, it has become evident that the role of neuropeptides as fast-acting neurotransmitters is challenged by the observation that many of them may act as growth factors by stimulating cell proliferation and slow-acting mitogenesis. It has thus been demonstrated that a number of neuroactive peptides, such as pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP), adrenocorticotrophin (ACTH), opioid peptides, somatostatin, and substance P, may modulate proliferation and cell viability. Some peptides act as stimulatory factors on brain circuits involved in cognition, whereas others may act as inhibitory factors. Accordingly, many neuropeptide systems appear as important targets for neuroprotective drugs and drugs that promote neuroregeneration"--Provided by publisher.

    This book provides the latest findings on neuroprotection and neuroregeneration as potential therapeutic strategies for various eye diseases, namely, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), retinal detachment, and retinitis pigmentosa. Glaucoma is one of the main causes of blindness throughout the world, and other diseases such as AMD and retinitis pigmentosa also lead to loss of vision. All these conditions are characterized by degeneration of specific retinal cell types, making it essential to establish treatments to protect retinal neurons and the optic nerve. With that aim in mind, this book explains the mechanisms underlying aforementioned diseases and their experimental models. The novel strategy proposals for the treatment of retinal diseases based on the concept of neuroprotection are also discussed in the main body of the text, while the section on regenerative research discusses optic nerve regeneration, endothelial progenitor cells, and iPS cells. This book is recommended as a professional reference work for all doctors and trainees in the field of ophthalmology who are interested in neuroprotective and neuroregenerative treatments.

    Once viewed as a somewhat vague metaphysical construct, not suitable for behavioral inquiry, attention is now recognized as a core cognitive function, essential to the brain's processing of outside stimuli. Not surprisingly in an era of advanced information technologies--and rising rates of ADD--attention has also emerged as a significant area of study within neuropsychology. The Second Edition of Neuropsychology of Attention reflects this evolution, integrating fruitful lines of inquiry from disciplines as varied as psychology, medicine, and cognitive science, and synthesizing the current state of attention-related theory, conceptualization, findings, and therapy. Focusing on cognitive, behavioral, and neural processes, mechanisms, and disorders, this reference expands on previous models of brain structures and function in light of the latest theoretical and technological advances. Imaging, clinical, and experimental data locate attention in the context of executive functioning and track the attentional effects of specific conditions from depression to TBI to Alzheimer's disease. And the book's updated clinical chapters offer state of the art methods for the assessment and treatment of attention disturbances, providing possibilities for addressing these and other real-life concerns. Included in the coverage: Phenomenology, history and evolution of the neuropsychology of attention. Behavioral and cognitive manifestations and processes of attention. Relationships of attention to consciousness, awareness and memory. Neural substrates of attention. Functional brain systems underlying attention. Impact on attention of specific neurological, psychiatric, and medical illnesses. Current methods for assessing attentional disorders. Effective behavioral treatments and pharmacotherapy. Neural, behavioral, and physical constraints on attention. New directions from neuroimaging and computational neuroscience. The Second Edition of Neuropsychology of Attention brings a variety of professionals up to speed, including neuropsychologists, cognitive neuroscientists, health psychologists, primary care physicians, and educators.

    Edited and authored by a wealth of international experts in neuroscience and related disciplines, the aim behind this key new resource is to offer medical students and graduate researchers around the world a comprehensive introduction and overview of modern neuroscience. Neuroscience research is certain to prove a vital element in combating mental illness in its various incarnations, a strategic battleground in the future of medicine, as the prevalence of mental disorders is becoming better understood each year. Hundreds of millions of people worldwide are affected by mental, behavioral, neurological and substance use disorders. The World Health Organization estimated in 2002 that 154 million people globally suffer from depression and 25 million people from schizophrenia; 91 million people are affected by alcohol use disorders and 15 million by drug use disorders. A more recent WHO report shows that 50 million people suffer from epilepsy and 24 million from Alzheimer's and other dementias. Because neuroscience takes the etiology of disease--the complex interplay between biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors--as its object of inquiry, it is increasingly valuable in understanding an array of medical conditions. A recent report by the United States' Surgeon General cites several such diseases: schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, early-onset depression, autism, attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder, anorexia nervosa, and panic disorder, among many others. Not only is this volume a boon to those wishing to understand the future of neuroscience, it also aims to encourage the initiation of neuroscience programs in developing countries, featuring as it does an appendix full of advice on how to develop such programs. With broad coverage of both basic science and clinical issues, comprising 106 chapters from a diversity of international authors and including complementary video components, Neuroscience in the 21st Century will serve as a comprehensive resource to students and researchers alike.

    Although, within neurosonology, study of both the extracranial and the intracranial circulation began at least 15 years ago, it is only in recent years that ultrasound evaluation of cerebral veins and cerebral venous hemodynamics has attracted wider attention. Nevertheless, the huge variability in venous outflow pathways in normal subjects means that the potential usefulness of this examination is still often neglected. This atlas provides concise descriptions of the main normal and pathological ultrasound features of the cerebral venous circulation for neurosonologists and clinicians. It is designed as a practical tool that will be of assistance in everyday practice in the ultrasound lab and will improve the knowledge of sonologists and the reliability of venous ultrasound studies. The multimedia format, with detailed images, explanatory videos, and short, targeted descriptions, ensures that information is clearly conveyed and that users will become fully acquainted with the variability of normal findings of venous examinations. The atlas will be of value both to trainees in this field of ultrasound and to neurosonologists who are beginning to perform venous examinations in addition to arterial extra- and intracranial examinations.

    "Neurosonology is a first-line modality in the diagnosis and management of cerebrovascular disease and especially of stroke. In this new edition of Neurosonology and Neuroimaging of Stroke, this noninvasive, realtime imaging method has been given expanded coverage, particularly for its clinical utility. As in the first edition, the new edition offers both a clear overview of the principles of neurosonology and a casebook exploring critical cerebrovascular problems. Ultrasound anatomy, technical aspects of clinical application, and the advantages and limitations of ultrasound are reviewed and contrasted to conventional, magnetic resonance, and computed tomography angiography. Forty-five selected cases from the authors' extensive collections at Charite - Universitatsmedizin Berlin and the Center of Neurology in Bad Segeberg, Germany, are then discussed. The patient histories and working diagnoses are followed by detailed assessments of the extra- and intracranial color-coded duplex sonographic findings and additional diagnostic procedures. The relevant clinical aspects are presented in a compact, comprehensible way, and for the majority of the cases videos are available in the Thieme MediaCenter, providing further in-depth understanding of the full potential of the method. Features:Complete extra- and intracranial arterial and venous ultrasound examination. New techniques: ultrasound fusion imaging, ultrafast ultrasound, contrast applicationMore than 1,300 high-quality illustrations, including full-color duplex images. Fifteen newly selected cases on conditions such as subarachnoid hemorrhage and dural fistula, as well as rare stroke causes including sickle cell disease and reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome. Revision of many cases from the first edition. More than 60 new video clips (for a total of 130) available at the Thieme MediaCenter, bringing ultrasound anatomy and challenging cases to your monitor! Neurosonology and Neuroimaging of Stroke, Second Edition, offers neurologists, neuroradiologists, and all physicians treating patients with cerebrovascular disease an authoritative introduction and guide to this powerful diagnostic tool"--Provided by publisher.

    While steroids from the periphery have profound effects on the nervous system, the nervous system also produces its own steroids de novo ("neurosteroids"). The physiological importance of neurosteroids is beginning to be understood. These steroids potentially have roles in sedative/hypnotic behavior, anxiety, learning, and memory. At the cellular level, neurosteroids affect neuronal excitability, synaptic plasticity and cell proliferation and survival. Early findings hold promise for future strategies to treat specific psychological conditions and neurological diseases. This Brief will focus on the current state of understanding of brainderived neurosteroids.

    "The book is devoted to the neurosurgical management of spasticity. Starting with a chapter on the anatomical and physiological foundations of spasticity and a short history of its neurosurgical treatment, it describes the neurosurgical methods currently available. As management differs between adults and children, the book is also structured accordingly, including evaluation, decision-making, Intrathecal Baclofen Therapy (ITB), botulinum toxin therapy, and surgery. Beyond ITB, the neurosurgical options covered include procedures focusing on the peripheral nerves, dorsal roots, Dorsal Root Entry Zone and spinal cord. Based on surgical experience collected with more than a thousand patients, the book gathers the most important aspects of our present understanding, presented using a practical, educational approach. It stresses the importance of a multidisciplinary approach, including neurologists, pediatricians and rehabilitation specialists. Close collaboration with other surgical disciplines like orthopedic surgery and neuro-urology are also outlined."--Publisher's website.

    Good neurosurgical practice is based not only on evidence, skills, and modern equipment, but also on good values. Young surgeons often learn about ethical behavior by observing the behavior of their teachers in different situations, but for several reasons, this is not enough. This book discusses the ethical issues that arise during the daily practice of neurosurgery. It will be especially informative for neurosurgeons, other surgeons, physicians, residents, medical students, and allied health care providers. The book is not a philosophical expose but an easily readable and highly practical road map on how to navigate ethically challenging situations in neurosurgical and other practice. The book is divided into five parts addressing general issues, patients' rights, end of life issues, neurosurgeons' duties, and neurosurgeons and society. The contributing authors are well-established neurosurgeons and other doctors with long experience and from different backgrounds. They discuss ethical problems encountered in everyday practice, introduced by cases, and in all, there are more than 50 neurosurgical cases drawn from real life. The editors introduce in the title and throughout the book the term 'value-based medicine' which reinforces that while modern medicine and surgery have come very far in technical aspects, the core of what we do must be based on the values embodied in bioethics.

    A host of neurotransmitters and neuroactive substances underlies respiratory regulation in health and disease. The centerpiece of investigations regarding adaptation to hypoxia and sensorial perception has been the dopaminergic system. It is now clear that a complex interaction among various neuroactive substances, rather than a single one, forms the basis of respiratory changes. The research on neurotransmitter interactions provides the knowledge of how the brain functions and a new level of understanding of mind-to-body connection, which opens up avenues for novel therapeutic interventions.

    In this book, leading clinicians present widely accepted guidelines and evidence-based practices for the management of patients with traumatic brain injury. Divided into five main sections, the book guides the clinician through the science, management, critical care, outcomes, and important socioeconomic issues relevant to patient care. With an integrated management approach to injury and rehabilitation that goes well beyond initial surgery, Neurotrauma and Critical Care of the Brain will enable neurosurgeons, neurologists, physicians in trauma, critical care, and rehabilitation medicine, and residents in these specialties to optimize patient care and outcomes. It is also useful as a guide for board exam preparation. The companion volume to this book is Neurotrauma and Critical Care of the Spine.

    "This book employs a cased-based format similar to the earlier Krings book, Case-Based Interventional Neuroradiology. After describing a clinical scenario the relevant anatomic structure or variation will be described and explained (embryological background) and its impact on treatment decisions and treatment modalities are explained. Potential complications that may arise if not properly recognized are indentified. Images of other similar cases are added to show the spectrum of the anatomy and its variations. References to the pertinent literature are provided for each case. Cases are grouped to allow for smooth reading cover to cover and at the same time to quickly get one up to speed prior to performing a procedure where one encounters a similar variation. Imaging includes conventional angiography but will also include MR/MRA and CT/CTA when appropriate"--Provided by publisher.

    This book contains articles presented at the 12th International Conference on Cerebral Vasospasm, held in Lucerne, Switzerland, in July 2013. The included papers represent a balanced cross-section of the enormous progress achieved in basic and clinical research on aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage and its sequelae, including early neurovascular events and delayed cerebral vasospasm. The section on basic research covers a broad range of aspects, from pathophysiology and neuroprotection in early brain injury through to macro- and microcirculatory disturbances, inflammation and blood-brain barrier disruption, spreading depolarization, and the role of nitric oxide. There is a special focus on animal models for the study of acute events after experimental subarachnoid hemorrhage. The section on clinical topics encompasses imaging and endovascular management, surgical innovations and techniques, management and monitoring in neurocritical care, the status of clinical trials, and factors involved in aneurysm formation. This edition is of interest not only for basic researchers but also for clinicians who wish to apply state-of-the-art knowledge to the research and management of this devastating condition.

    Neutron capture therapy (NCT) is based on the ability of the non-radioactive isotope boron-10 to capture thermal neutrons with very high probability and immediately to release heavy particles with a path length of one cell diameter. This in principle allows for tumor cell-selective high-LET particle radiotherapy. NCT is exciting scientifically but challenging clinically, and a key factor in success is close collaboration among very different disciplines. This book provides a comprehensive summary of the progress made in NCT in recent years. Individual sections cover all important aspects, including neutron sources, boron chemistry, drugs for NCT, dosimetry, and radiation biology. The use of NCT in a variety of malignancies and also some non-malignant diseases is extensively discussed. NCT is clearly shown to be a promising modality at the threshold of wider clinical application. All of the chapters are written by experienced specialists in language that will be readily understood by all participating disciplines.

    The increasing demand for physical interaction between humans and robots has led to an interest in robots whose behavior is guaranteed to be safe when they are in close proximity with humans. However, attaining sufficiently high levels of performance while ensuring safety creates formidable challenges in mechanical design, actuation, sensing, and control. To promote safety without compromising performance, a new actuation concept, referred to as hybrid actuation, has been developed. Since low impedance output at high frequencies is essential for robot safety, while optimal passive stiffness is needed for robot performance, the new actuation approach employs a pneumatic artificial muscle as a macro actuator to provide low-frequency torques. Artificial pneumatic muscles provide high force-to-weight ratio and inherent compliance, both of which allow for low impedance actuation. To compensate for the slow and non-linear dynamics of pneumatic actuation, a small electromagnetic actuator collocated at the robot's joint is employed as a mini actuator, which provides high mechanical bandwidth for high performance without increasing the inertia and size of the manipulator. To achieve the appropriate balance between safety and performance, design methodologies were developed that optimally determine key design parameters such as the required mini motor torque capacity, the joint stiffness introduced by an antagonistic pair of muscles, and the pulley radius. Using a testbed, referred to as the Stanford Safety Robot (S2rho), the hybrid actuation was evaluated for position tracking performance, force tracking performance, and impact behavior. The experimental results demonstrate that by significantly improving control performance with the hybrid actuation over performance with pneumatic muscles alone, while reducing the effective inertia significantly, the competing design objectives of safety and performance can be successfully integrated into a single robotic manipulator. As an extension of the hybrid actuation concept, the new design of dual four-degree-of-freedom robotic arms with torso is presented and detailed descriptions of the design are included.

    Rising occurrences of various diseases and epidemics have pressurized the already-burdened health system across the globe, and this imposes an unprecedented challenge on our current research in identifying disease-specific biomarkers and molecular targets, in particular for cancers, neurological disorders and unexplained infertility. Despite decades of efforts in deciphering the fundamental biology underlying various diseases at discrete levels using an array of advanced technologies, attempts to identify reliable and disease-indicating markers for detection and biomolecules or cellular structures for targeting are still in vain. This monograph describes and discusses the updated findings in this field with a specific aim to compile prior and recent literature and from there to acquire some insights to facilitate future research to expand our options of understanding, detecting and treating diseases. Among the many possible areas of biomedical research, this content comprises two themes: disease biomarkers and molecular targets. We also cover topics that are more advanced in development to emerging scientific discoveries. In particular, we have included in this monograph concepts on the renovated use of oncofetal molecules in cancer prediction and treatment, the evolving development in cancer biology at the cellular and molecular levels and the recent involvement on new classes of molecules in diseases. We hope that this book can renew established concepts in the field, and at the same time lead to important insights for research and development of drugs, diagnostics, and interventions for managing diseases of unmet medical needs.
