    This book addresses the differentiation control of skeletal muscle in different locations of the vertebrate body. Particular attention is paid to novel regulatory molecules and signals as well as to the heterogeneity of origin that have revealed a developmental overlap between skeletal and cardiac muscle. Different functional muscle groups are the product of the evolution of the vertebrate classes, making a phylogenetic comparison worthwhile for understanding the role of muscle stem cells and precursors in myogenesis. New insights into the hierarchy of transcription factors, particularly in the context of these different muscle groups come from detailed investigations of the spatio-temporal and regulatory relationships derived from mouse and zebrafish genetics and avian microsurgery. Importantly, epigenetic mechanisms that have surfaced recently, in particular the role of MyomiRs, are also surveyed. Regarding human patients, encouraging results have been generated that identify parallels between embryonic myogenesis and regenerating myofibers that share regulatory molecules. Interestingly, the heterogeneity in embryonic origins of skeletal muscle groups in the vertebrate including humans is paralleled by their different susceptibility to types of muscle dystrophies. The progress that has been made in the field of muscle stem cell biology, especially on satellite cells, is outlined in this book by experts in the field. The authors review recent insights of the heterogeneous nature of these satellite cells regarding their gene signatures and regeneration potential. An improved understanding of muscle stem cells seems only possible with a view to the cell environment, putting embryological and molecular findings from different vertebrate classes and stem cell approaches into context.

    "This comprehensive review of vascular disease in the vertebrobasilar circulation is based on Dr Louis R. Caplan's extensive experience and observation of patients from the New England Medical Center posterior circulation stroke registry. It benefits from an organized, uniform, and coherent analysis of all types of vascular disease involving the posterior circulation, presented by a single author who is one of the world's leading authorities on this topic. This new edition is fully updated throughout, including a review of all the literature published on this topic since the previous edition in 1996. There are major rewrites for the chapters on diagnosis and therapy, inclusion of modern imaging techniques, and extensive illustrations. Essential reading for stroke physicians and neurologists, the book will also be an important source of reference for neurosurgeons, vascular surgeons and endovascular radiologists"--Provided by publisher.

    Many congenitally deaf infants and children suffer vestibular failure, which produces problems with their postural control, locomotion, and gait. However it is known that these children can eventually catch up with their normal balance control status in terms of development and growth as a result of central vestibular compensation. In Vertigo and Balance Disorders in Children the author provides comprehensive and integrative information on the vestibular system. The materials presented range from the history of its study, basic anatomy and physiology of vestibular organs, and the mechanism of balance and motor function development, to clinical aspects of vestibular disorders including their evaluation and pediatric neurology. Although there have been books discussing postural responses of infants and children with vestibular disorders, this is the first to present the influence of peripheral vestibular disorders and central vestibular compensation comprehensively. This book will benefit not only practitioners in this field such as pediatric otolaryngologists, pediatricians, and neurologists treating both children and adults, but also clinical specialists such as neonatologists, physical therapists, and speech therapists, helping them to better care for patients with vestibular failure.

    "This book describes in detail rehabilitation protocols specific for those disorders that most frequently induce vertigo and dizziness. In particular, it highlights exercise protocols that will enable the best result to be obtained within the shortest time and with the most enduring therapeutic effect. Drawing on their personal experience, the authors describe physical exercises that will prove effective in delivering vestibular rehabilitation all over the world, regardless of the rehabilitation tools available. The protocol standardization and the reduction in instrumental rehabilitation mean that even though some individual tailoring is required, it will be possible to plan cost-effective rehabilitation within both the institutional and the private practice setting. The presented protocols cover vertigo in a wide range of conditions, including acute and chronic vestibular loss, vestibular ataxia, benign positional paroxysmal vertigo, Ménière's disease, dizziness in the elderly, whiplash-associated balance disorders, phobic postural vertigo, and autonomic vertigo. Helpful information is provided on clinical approach to vertigo and dizziness and on vestibular rehabilitation from Cawthorne-Cooksey onward. The quantification of rehabilitation outcome and the role of life-style counseling are also discussed. By documenting effective functional and therapeutic approaches and presenting guidelines for each balance disorder, Vertigo Rehabilitation Protocols will be an invaluable resource for neurologists, ENT physicians, orthopedists, and rehabilitation specialists."--Publisher's website.

    Vestibular Migraine is a concise monograph that presents the scientific basis for the diagnosis and treatment of this common yet largely unrecognized cause of dizziness. Current knowledge of the features of the disorder is described, and clear guidance is provided on the differentiation of vestibular migraine from other conditions that induce dizziness, including M©♭ni©·reℓ́ℓs disease. Symptomatic treatment and the various prophylactic options are discussed and evaluated, and advice is also included on long-term treatment and the circumstances under which treatment should be discontinued. Approximately one-third of migraineurs experience dizziness that sometimes occurs in conjunction with the headaches but often arises separately. The vestibular symptoms in this population vary in frequency, severity, and duration; they are described as spinning or lightheadedness or both and are often exacerbated by position change. Ear fullness, tinnitus, and hearing loss are frequent complaints. Vestibular migraine is diagnosed by carefully obtaining a history: there are no pathognomonic blood, urine, or imaging studies. This book will be of interest to all physicians and other health care providers who deal with dizzy patients, including internists, family physicians, neurologists, otolaryngologists, and trainees in those specialties, as well as nurse practitioners and physician assistants.

    This book provides a multidisciplinary approach to vestibular migraine and related syndromes in which dizziness is the most predominant feature. Starting from the neurological point of view, the pathophysiology, classification, neurophysiology, and therapy of migraine are discussed. Readers will learn how to recognize and properly treat vestibular migraine, which is often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed as Ménière's syndrome (a form of vertigo characterized by vertigo spells and hearing loss that presents comorbidity with migraine) or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (in which patients experience brief episodes of vertigo, lasting from seconds to 1 minute, when they move their heads in a certain way). The described diagnostic and therapeutic strategies include the newest, state of the art approaches. Further aspects of migraine that are considered include hyperexcitability in the brain and the triad of migraine, dizziness, and anxiety. In addition, the imaging of migraine, and of vestibular migraine in particular, is discussed and clinical records are reported. Vestibular Migraine and Related Syndromes is based on the practical and clinical experiences of an authoritative group of well-known neurologists, ENT specialists, and neuro-otologists. It provides neurologists with a complete overview of relevant clinical features, otolaryngologists with clear descriptions of clinical aspects and the pathophysiology of migraine, and radiologists with guidance on the role of imaging techniques.

    Violence is one of the most important challenges, not only for public health systems, but also for public mental health. Violence can have immediate as well as long-term and even transgenerational effects on the mental health of its victims. This book provides a comprehensive and wide-ranging assessment of the mental health legacy left by violence. It addresses the issues as they affect states, communities and families, in other words at macro-, meso-, and microlevels, beginning by describing the impact of violence on neurobiology and mental health, as well as the spectrum of syndromes and disorders associated with different forms of violence. ℗ℓ The work moves on to tackle violence at the international and intranationalℓ́ℓlevel before zeroing in on the nature of violence in communities such as villages or city districts. It also examines the results of violence in the family. Each type of violence has distinct effects on mental health, and in each chapter specific groups are explored in depth to demonstrate the heterogeneity of violence as well as the diversity of its outcomes in the realm of public mental health. Finally, the book addresses the notion of undoing violenceℓ́ℓ by detailing case studies of effective interventions and prevention occurring in countries, communities and families. These cases give us pause to reflect on the nature of resilience and dignity in the context of violence and mental health. All the chapters have been written by leading authors in the field and provide a state-of-the-art perspective. The authors, from different fields of expertise, facilitate interdisciplinary and international insights into the impact of violence on mental health.

    For a virus to invade a host cell it needs to penetrate the physical barrier imposed by the plasma membrane. Viruses have evolved specialized surface proteins to meet this challenge. These proteins facilitate delivery of the viral genetic information into the host cell by either fusing the viral envelope with a host cell membrane or by forming membrane pores. Membrane fusion and pore formation critically depend on the engagement of host cell receptors and receptor choice is a key determinant of viral tropism. The multi-faceted interplay between viral and cellular factors during virus entry is a fascinating field of study, which can provide important insight into viral pathogenesis and define new targets for intervention. This book provides a comprehensive overview of this exciting field of research.

    Viral infections of the nervous system are important because they are associated with high morbidity and mortality. A variety of pathogenetic mechanisms are involved in these infections and an understanding of the pathogenesis is essential in understanding the diagnostic and clinical management aspects of the disease. Specialized investigations are often necessary for definitive diagnosis, although a presumptive diagnosis should often be suspected on the basis of the clinical features. Many of the chapters in this book are written by neurologists who are experts in basic science research of their topic in addition to active clinical practice in their specialty.

    Striking changes have occurred in the world since the publication of the last edition of Viral Infections of Humans. The global population is rapidly approaching 8 billion; climate change is leading to the introduction of new hosts, vectors and virus diseases heretofore never seen in many parts of the world; technological advances have revolutionized the ability to recognize and characterize viruses new and old; vaccines are altering the epidemiological landscape of the diseases they target, in some cases raising the hope of their eradication; and remarkably powerful computational tools are enabling not only detection of outbreaks of disease much sooner than in the past but also, through complex mathematical modeling, more accurate prediction of their potential impact. The new Fifth Edition of Viral Infections of Humans captures both the excitement and frustration of the dynamic struggle between humankind and the viruses that continue to cause immense suffering. It presents the latest concepts, methods, and technologies in epidemiology, detection, investigation, modeling, and intervention. Updated and entirely new chapters by dozens of experts across the field provide analytic summaries of current knowledge of viruses and prions causing acute syndromes, chronic illnesses, and/or malignancies. In sum, this ambitiously expanded volume offers a uniquely comprehensive perspective on viruses in humans, from agents of classic diseases (e.g., hepatitis, measles, polio, rabies, and yellow fever), to those with greatest pandemic impact (e.g., influenza and human immunodeficiency virus), to those discovered relatively recently (e.g., henipavirus, metapneumovirus, and norovirus). The new Fifth Edition of Viral Infections of Humans is an invaluable reference for students, fellows and established professionals in the fields of microbiology, public health and infectious disease epidemiology, medicine, and health policy.

    The author, a Stanford biologist reveals the surprising origins of the world's most deadly viruses, and how we can overcome catastrophic pandemics. He discusses the complex interactions between humans and viruses, and the threat from viruses that jump from species to species. He tells the story of how viruses and human beings have evolved side by side through history; how deadly viruses like HIV, swine flu, and bird flu almost wiped us out in the past; and why modern life has made our species vulnerable to the threat of a global pandemic. His research missions to the jungles of Africa and the rain forests of Borneo have earned him the nickname "the Indiana Jones of virus hunters," and in this book he takes readers along on his groundbreaking and often dangerous research trips to reveal the surprising origins of the most deadly diseases and to explain the role that viruses have played in human evolution. In a world where each new outbreak seems worse than the one before, he points the way forward, as new technologies are brought to bear in the most remote areas of the world to neutralize these viruses and even harness their power for the good of humanity. His provocative vision of the future will change the way we think about viruses, and perhaps remove a potential threat to humanity's survival. -- Provided by publisher.

    Two dimensional electron systems (2DESs) at semiconductor interfaces are a useful medium for studying complex physics due to their very low disorder and relative simplicity. Many interesting effects, such as the quantum Hall effect, have been discovered through transport measurements in such systems. Unfortunately, the interfacial nature of 2DESs and the related surface energy barrier means that directly accessing them from the surface is difficult. This has limited our understanding of theoretically-predicted, spatially-organized effects such Wigner-crystal microemulsions and quantum Hall stripes, which have been probed only indirectly. In this dissertation, we develop a new type of local probe that circumvents the surface barrier by tunneling into a 2DES from a second 2DES grown nearby. The interlayer tunneling happens directly below a scanned metal tip outside the sample, behaving as a virtual tip in a system we call Virtual Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (VSTM). In the first half of the dissertation, we discuss a novel mechanism for tuning tunneling locally between two 2DESs. Its premise is that raising a quantum potential well next to an adjacent barrier is energetically similar to lowering the barrier relative to a fixed well. A lower barrier leads to the quantum well wave function extending into it and to increased tunneling into a second quantum well on the opposite side. We characterize this mechanism in a GaAs-AlGaAs heterostructure as a new type of transistor. In the second half of the dissertation, results from a working VSTM system are presented, with local interlayer tunneling revealing hidden features in the interfaces below the surface.

    "Whether sharing photos or following financial markets, many of us spend a shocking amount of time online. While the Internet can enhance well-being, [Stanford psychiatrist] Elias Aboujaoude has spent years treating patients whose lives have been profoundly disturbed by it. Part of the danger lies in how the Internet allows us to act with exaggerated confidence, sexiness, and charisma. This new self, which Aboujaoude dubs our "e-personality," manifests itself in every curt email we send, Facebook "friend" we make, and "buy now" button we click. Too potent to be confined online, however, e-personality traits seep offline, too, making us impatient, unfocused, and urge-driven even after we log off. This first scrutiny of the virtual world's transformative power on our psychology shows us how real life is being reconfigured in the image of a chat room, and how our identity increasingly resembles that of our avatar"--From publisher description.

    The practical need to partition the world of viruses into distinguishable, universally agreed upon entities is the ultimate justification for developing a virus classification system. Since 1971, the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) operating on behalf of the world community of virologists has taken on the task of developing a single, universal taxonomic scheme for all viruses infecting animals (vertebrate, invertebrates, and protozoa), plants (higher plants and algae), fungi, bacteria, and archaea. The current report builds on the accumulated taxonomic construction of the eight previous reports dating back to 1971 and records the proceedings of the Committee since publication of the last report in 2005. Representing the work of more than 500 virologists worldwide, this report is the authoritative reference for virus organization, distinction, and structure.

    "Viruses are now considered to play major roles in the evolution of life. Because they have genes that are not found in any cellular organism they seem to be remnants of early stages of life on earth. Besides their disease causing features and actions as genetic parasites viruses have lifestyles that are clearly symbiotic and even symbiogenetic. Increasing empirical data suggest that some viruses such as endogenous retroviruses and non-retroviral RNA viruses and even DNA viruses prefer cellular genomes as habitat. They determine genetic host (group) identity and genetic host features. Viruses and virus-related modules such as mobile genetic elements and other repeat sequences identified in intronic regions of host genomes play important roles in gene regulation and genetic content (re)arrangement. This book exemplifies some astonishing key features of viruses acting as essential agents of life."--Publisher.

    Will address an important, yet underrepresented, topic. The correlation between viruses and atherosclerosis has been a focal point of the authors work, for a number of years. This volume will explore the relationship between different viral strains and atherosclerosis. It will begin by describing the hypothesis and denoting the mechanisms of virus-driven atherosclerosis, then expanding on the subject by focusing on different virus strains from Herpes, to Epstein-Barr, to the triad of Hepatitis viruses, et al on a chapter-by-chapter basis. While there are books, albeit few, that cover particular viral strains and their relationship to cardiovascular diseases, this work will be unique in its scope by considering multiple strains of viruses, making it a repository of information on the topic; a truly comprehensive volume.

    Research on oncogenic viruses and related human cancers has advanced rapidly in the past decade. Most articles, however, focus on a specific oncogenic virus and cancer. There is consequently a need for a comprehensive, up-to-date monograph that offers broad and integrated knowledge. Viruses and Human Cancer - From Basic Science to Clinical Prevention is designed to meet this need by providing an advanced overview on the basic and clinical aspects of oncogenic viruses and the human cancers that they cause. Virology, virus-induced inflammation and tissue injuries, oncogenic mechanisms, epidemiology, and current and emerging preventive and therapeutic strategies are all discussed in detail. In addition, the book covers the individual aspects of seven oncogenic viruses, i.e., hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, human papilloma virus, Epstein-Barr virus, human T-cell lymphotropic virus, Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpes virus, and Merkel cell polyomavirus, and the related human cancers. The susceptibility of high-risk hosts such as transplantation recipients is also addressed, and new vaccine developments are described.

    Worldwide, infectious disease remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality. In developing countries, infection accounts for a substantial proportion of all recorded deaths. Likewise, in developed countries, pneumonia alone results in a large number of deaths. Along with bacteria, parasites and rickettsial organisms, viruses are responsible for many of the infections afflicting the human host. In the past decade alone, viruses that primarily target the lung have caused major respiratory illnesses including outbreaks of severe adult respiratory distress syndrome (SARS) and H1N1 influenza. This book is distinctive in that the entire spectrum of viral disease of the lung is conveniently compiled within a single volume. The epidemiologic, ultrastructural, immunologic, clinical and histopathologic features of well-known viral pathogens and newer emergent infectious agents are discussed. The book is organized in a classic fashion, starting with introductory material and sections on lung defenses and the taxonomic classification of pneumotropic viruses. The various acute viral pneumonias are then considered in a standard format in the main body of the book. Subsequent sections are devoted to the human immunodeficiency virus, viral lung disease in children and other viral-linked tumoral and nontumoral lung conditions. A chapter is also included on animal lung diseases caused by viruses. The text is supplemented by numerous color images.

    This report draws attention to the threat of viruses as a risk to public health when they are present in food. Viruses play a major role in the burden of infectious intestinal disease and require special and separate attention because they behave differently from bacteria. In identifying the major routes of viral contamination of foods, this report seeks to highlight those areas which need immediate attention and provide guidance to both risk assessors and risk managers in understanding the challenges to be overcome in effectively addressing the problems associated with foodborne viruses.--Publisher's description.

    Reading is the remarkable human ability to decode the sounds and meaning of language from an intricate combination of strokes of ink. This perceptual capacity is tolerant to changes in size, font, and other visual features of text. Transformations of the neural representation between many neural modules, including primary visual cortex (V1), other retinotopically organized areas, and language regions, are necessary for successful reading. An important focus of previous work has been on characterizing word representations in ventral occipito-temporal cortex, in particular in a left-hemisphere region known as the visual word form area (VWFA). To better understand the transformations occurring between V1 and the VWFA, we measured (using functional magnetic resonance imaging, fMRI) and perturbed (using transcranial magnetic stimulation) neural responses in several visual areas while subjects read words defined by atypical visual features (Chapter 2). We show that VWFA responses are invariant to the visual features that define word stimuli, and we show how flexible neural circuitry accounts for these abstract representations. While these studies contribute to understanding the VWFA's inputs, the inner organization of the VWFA remains unexplored. We describe experiments that use fMRI and electrocorticography (ECoG) in the human brain to show that the VWFA is sensitive to visual field position, and that together with a homologous right-hemisphere region, its inner organization encompasses a retinotopic map (Chapter 3). Information about abstract word forms is in turn transferred from the VWFA to language areas of the brain. This transfer occurs via large white-matter bundles that can be measured with diffusion imaging (DTI). We compare data from a severely dyslexic individual to a group of control subjects and show that the individual's deficits are due to a missing arcuate fasciculus, one of the major pathways important for reading and language (Chapter 4). This set of experiments ties together several fields of neuroscientific inquiry, including early visual processing, complex visual object representations, and language. Ultimately, if we are to understand how spots of light are transformed into sounds and meaning, we must unravel the smaller transformations that occur within all these components of the reading circuitry.

    The amount of information available to the retina far exceeds the processing capacity of the visual system. Visual attention provides a means by which we can make use of the information available with optimal efficiency, allowing us to selectively process objects that are most likely to help us achieve our behavioral goals while filtering out others. Decades of research have revealed that visual representations of objects aligned with the locus of attention are enhanced, resulting in perceptual benefits. The attentional modulation of visual cortical responses, however, has been almost exclusively characterized within the context of volitionally deployed, top-down attention. Although the behavioral correlates of involuntarily deployed, bottom-up attention are well known, the underlying neural mechanism and its relationship to top-down attention are not. In Chapters 2 and 3 of this thesis, I describe experiments that investigate the neural correlates and mechanisms of bottom-up attention. In order to examine the neural correlates of bottom-up attention, we measured responses of single neurons in area V4 to "popout" stimuli, which differ uniformly from surrounding items and draw attention in a bottom-up manner, and compared them to responses to "conjunction" stimuli, which are composed of a combination of surrounding features and require top-down selection. We found that V4 responses are modulated by popout stimuli. This selectivity was more robust when larger numbers of surrounding items and multiple features were included in the display, and it was absent when only a few items were presented immediately outside the receptive field (RF). We next examined the relationship between bottom-up and top-down attention by measuring responses to these same stimuli while top-down attention was directed to locations distant from the RF. We found that popout selectivity was eliminated, indicating that the salience of popout stimuli is not sufficient to drive selection by V4 neurons under these conditions. These results demonstrate that neurons in feature-selective cortex are influenced by bottom-up attention, but that this influence is limited by top-down attention. Whether the source of the signal initiating attentional deployment is top-down or bottom-up, our gaze is typically aligned with the locus of our attention, making use of the high density of photoreceptors at the fovea of the retina. As we move our eyes around a visual scene to briefly fixate objects for further processing, we do not perceive the explosive onset of motion between each fixation that is created by these eye movements, nor do we perceive a series of individual snapshots from each fixation. Instead, we have a seamless visual experience of our surroundings. This perception of continuity across eye movements is crucial to efficient behavior, and yet the neural mechanisms that support a continuous visual experience are not well understood. In Chapter 4 of this thesis, I describe an experiment that investigates the neural representations of perceptual continuity during saccadic eye movements. In order to examine whether V4 neurons are involved in creating a continuous perceptual experience, we measured the responses of V4 neurons to probe stimuli presented during the preparation of saccadic eye movements to targets distant from the RF. We observed that the responses of area V4 neurons to probe stimuli depended on the similarity between the neuronal preference and the target of a saccade. Specifically, the suppression of V4 responses normally present during the preparation of saccades to targets outside of a neuron's RF was absent when the features of the target were congruent with the preference of the recorded neuron. This target-dependent modulation resulted in a substantial effect of the target match/non-match manipulation on neuronal selectivity. The results are consistent with a computational model in which saccade preparation automatically results in a global target-dependent modulation of visual cortical signals. We suggest that this modulation may contribute to the continuity of perception across saccadic eye movements. The results of this thesis demonstrate that V4 neurons are selective for stimuli that draw bottom-up attention. Surprisingly, this selectivity depends on the availability of top-down attentional resources, suggesting that these two distinct varieties of visual attention rely, at least in part, on a common mechanism. Additionally, this thesis provides evidence that V4 neurons contribute to a seamless perceptual experience by maintaining important visual information transaccadically.
