    A central goal in neuroscience is to explain animal behavior in terms of causal cellular processes. It has been a longstanding challenge, however, to simultaneously track behavior and the cellular dynamics driving it. In this thesis, I discuss how a series of one- and two-photon fluorescence microscopes, based on gradient refractive index (GRIN) lenses, were developed to meet this challenge. The predominant difficulty in the design of these microscopes was how to take a traditional bench top microscope and shrink it to a size small enough for a mouse to easily carry on its head, a limit of 3 grams. We chose mice as our design target due to the wide availability of genetically modified mouse models for the study of cognitive functions, animal behaviors, and disorders of the nervous system. The earlier devices, relying on fiber optics to bring light to and from the animal, met with limited success but still provided useful insight in the development of the surgical techniques and analytical tools necessary for later successful experiments. In contrast, our latest system fully integrates the entire light pathway onto the head of mouse, eliminating many of the remaining roadblocks to truly freely-moving imaging. This device has enabled novel observations of both microcirculatory and neuronal calcium dynamics in the cerebellum of freely-moving mice at frame rates up to 100 Hz. As the genetic toolbox for mice continues to mature, these miniaturized microscopes will facilitate a wide set of future studies of how cellular function in the brain varies across different behavioral and physiological states.

    "Diet and Exercise in Cognitive Function and Neurological Diseases looks at the role and impact that nutrition and activity have on cognitive function and neurological health. The book is divided into the two sections. The first focuses on diet and its impact on neurobiological processes. Chapters focus on the impacts of specific diets, such as the Mediterranean diet, ketogenic and vegan diets, as well as the role specific nutrients, fats, fatty acids, and caloric intake have on neurological health and cognitive function. The second part of the book focuses on exercise, and its role in maintaining cognitive function, reducing neuroinflammatory responses, regulating adult neurogenesis, and healthy brain aging. Other chapters in this section look at the impacts of disease in the management of specific neurological disorders such multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease. Collectively, the chapters in Diet and Exercise in Cognitive Function and Neurological Diseases come together to form a timely reference on the neurobiological interplay between diet and exercise on long-term brain health and cognitive function"--Provided by publisher.

    Spinal cord imaging has significantly benefited from new MR imaging methods such as cardiac-gated diffusion-weighted imaging, diffusion tensor imaging with fiber tracking, and time-resolved MR angiography. Recent decades have also witnessed fundamental progress in understanding of the pathophysiology of vascular, metabolic, and inflammatory spinal cord diseases. Furthermore, neurosurgical procedures and endovascular treatments of spinal cord diseases have been improved and perfected to avoid severe neurological sequelae. This textbook provides an interdisciplinary overview of the new imaging modalities, identifies clues for MR imaging diagnosis and differential diagnosis, and describes the anatomical background required to understand spinal cord diseases. Important neurological symptoms are highlighted, and modern treatment options for different diseases are fully explained and discussed. High-quality illustrations, including numerous images, are provided for all important spinal cord diseases, documenting relevant anatomical details, special MR imaging methods, differential diagnoses, and possible treatment procedures.

    Neurons are morphologically diverse, with many anatomical specializations that are crucial for their functions. Photoreceptors represent a specialized class of neurons whose elaborated apical structures, the rhabdomeres, and specific axonal projections collect visual stimuli and transmit them to the appropriate synaptic partners, forming the basis for vision. Through genetic analyses in the Drosophila visual system, we have studied the molecular mechanisms that control these two aspects of photoreceptor morphology. A forward genetic screen identified the GTPase effector Genghis khan (Gek) as mediating the ability of a subset of photoreceptor neurons to target to their appropriate postsynaptic columns. Gek was not required for the layer targeting of a different subset of photoreceptors; however ectopic expression in these cells was sufficient to affect their targeting choices. Regulation of Gek's responses to targeting cues may underlie differences in target choices among photoreceptors. The specification of photoreceptor apical structures depends on genes of the apical -- basal polarity family. Mutants in the genes Crumbs (Crb) and Stardust (Sdt) are required for rhabdomere development in distinct but overlapping subsets of photoreceptors. In addition, both genes are required in all cell types for the formation of the adherens junctions contacts between cells, suggesting that Crb and Sdt have both overlapping and unique functions in photoreceptor morphogenesis. Thus, these experiments provide insight into how two aspects of photoreceptor morphology are determined, and suggest mechanisms by which cell type specific morphologies may be produced.

    Dynamic Structure of NREM Sleep is a concise guide to Cyclic Alternating Pattern (CAP) phenomenology and slow wave homeostasis. It presents an original approach to a specialized aspect of sleep neuroscience in a concise and easy-to-read format. The authors are specialists in the field of sleep neuroscience and lend a new perspective to the benefits of slow wave activity during sleep. The main feature of this discussion is that slow wave activity increases as a function of previous wakefulness and it gradually decreases in the course of sleep. Alongside developing this idea, this book covers the entire range of sleep issues from basic structure to function in comprehensive detail. Dynamic Structure of NREM Sleep is valuable reading for neurologists, sleep neuroscientists and those with an interest in the field.

    More than 40 articles provide an extensive coverage of advances over the last three years of research on subarachnoid hemorrhage-induced brain injuries and cerebral vasospasm. Early brain injury, the new frontier of subarachnoid hemorrhage research, which may be a key contributor to the high mortality and morbidity, promotes collaborative efforts from neurosurgery, neurology, neuro-ICU into other interrelated fields and basic neurosciences. For the first time, subarachnoid hemorrhage research is almost equally divided by early brain injury and cerebral vasospasm, mechanistic investigations and therapeutic approaches, demonstrating a translational feature of the future direction.

    People with advancing neurological disease face increasing physical symptoms, along with psychosocial and spiritual issues affecting both themselves and their families and carers. There is increasing awareness that the end of life in neurological disease can be anticipated and recognised, taking into account certain key features of disease progression, and the associated issues can be addressed. The individual can prepare for future changes in their health, and be in a stronger position to influence or direct the care they receive. End of Life Care in Neurological Disease encourages health and social care professionals to become closely involved in the care of these people and their families, to maintain and maximise quality of life and plan ahead. This book addresses the principles and practice of end of life care for neurological disease, is written with a clinical, multidisciplinary focus, and is enriched with detailed case studies. This book is an accessible text for the multidisciplinary team in specialist palliative care, and will also be of interest to healthcare professionals in neurological services, including neurologists and neurology specialist nurses, rehabilitation services, general practitioners and community nurses. As care professionals, we are in a powerful position to help those who are living with advanced neurological disease and improve their quality of life and death.

    The capacity of the epigenome to interpret both internal and external stimuli and alter expression programs is a critical component in normal development, aging, and disease pathogenesis. In the past decade, we have witnessed an explosion of unprecedented research on and support for epigenetics, epigenomics, and their interface with human health and disease. In this volume, Environmental Epigenomics in Health and Disease - Epigenetics and Complex Diseases, a number of leading investigators in the field of epigenetics discuss patterns of epigenomic modifications in normal cells, and how environmentally-induced changes in them are associated with disease pathogenesis. The authors comprehensively review the epigenetic adaptations that occur in human embryonic stem cells, as well as in differentiating cells and organs such as the brain when exposed to environmental factors, and discuss the legal and ethical implications of such alterations. The overall purpose of this volume and its companion, Environmental Epigenomics in Health and Disease - Epigenetics and Disease Origins, is to give readers an overview of how environmental exposures during early development can influence disease formation by disrupting epigenetic programming.

    Behavioral Epigenetics is the study of how environmental factors affect alterations in behavior, addressing the fundamental mechanisms that shape development and individual vulnerability/resilience to adverse behavioral outcome. With an understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in epigenetic modulation, researchers believe it will be possible to develop targeted therapies for those individuals in whom it malfunctions. This volume will address current understanding of the roles of epigenetic processes at the molecular/cellular level, their impact on neural development and behavior.

    "What lies at the heart of neuronal plasticity? Accumulating evidence points to epigenetics. This word originally indicated potentially heritable modifications in gene expression that do not involve changes in DNA sequence. Today this definition is much less strict, and epigenetic control is thought to include DNA methylation, histone modifications, histone variants, microRNA metabolic pathways and non-histone proteins modifications. Thus, while neuronal plasticity is rightly thought to be intimately associated to genomic control, it is critical to appreciate that there is much more to the genome than DNA sequence. Recent years have seen spectacular advances in the field of epigenetics. These have attracted the interest of researchers in many fields and evidence connecting epigenetic regulation to brain functions has been accumulating. Neurons daily convert a variety of external stimuli into rapid or long-lasting changes in gene expression. A variety of studies have centered on the molecular mechanisms implicated in epigenetic control and how these may operate in concert. It will be critical to unravel how specificity is achieved. Importantly, specific modifications seem to mediate both developmental processes and adult brain functions, such as synaptic plasticity and memory. Many aspects of the research in neurosciences and endocrinology during the upcoming decade will be dominated by the deciphering of epigenetic control. This book constitutes a compendium of the most updated views in the field"--Publisher.

    "Although epilepsy is one of the nation's most common neurological disorders, public understanding of it is limited. Many people do not know the causes of epilepsy or what they should do if they see someone having a seizure. Epilepsy is a complex spectrum of disorders that affects an estimated 2.2 million Americans in a variety of ways, and is characterized by unpredictable seizures that differ in type, cause, and severity. Yet living with epilepsy is about much more than just seizures; the disorder is often defined in practical terms, such as challenges in school, uncertainties about social situations and employment, limitations on driving, and questions about independent living. The Institute of Medicine was asked to examine the public health dimensions of the epilepsies, focusing on public health surveillance and data collection; population and public health research; health policy, health care, and human services; and education for people with the disorder and their families, health care providers, and the public. In Epilepsy Across the Spectrum, the IOM makes recommendations ranging from the expansion of collaborative epilepsy surveillance efforts, to the coordination of public awareness efforts, to the engagement of people with epilepsy and their families in education, dissemination, and advocacy for improved care and services. Taking action across multiple dimensions will improve the lives of people with epilepsy and their families. The realistic, feasible, and action-oriented recommendations in this report can help enable short- and long-term improvements for people with epilepsy. For all epilepsy organizations and advocates, local, state, and federal agencies, researchers, health care professionals, people with epilepsy, as well as the public, Epilepsy Across the Spectrum is an essential resource"--Publisher's description.

    Written by expert epilepsy clinicians from the Mayo Clinic, Epilepsy Case Studies: Pearls for Patient Care presents a wide variety of case histories drawn from real life experiences in people with seizures. Designed to stimulate the same deductive reasoning that is commonly used when seeing epilepsy patients in the clinic, this practical book presents the clinical scenario and then poses a range of stimulating questions to organize the reader's thoughts to address each case. Questions that revolve around each case include common ones such as "How does this test help us with the diagnosis" and "What is the precise relationship of the patient's seizures to their overall neurological condition". The most poignant questions include "How does this information help us to devise a treatment plan?" and "What do we know about the anticipated course and prognosis?" The questions raised in each section incorporate the clinical course and evaluation. Where possible, the discussion relies upon the latest medical evidence to support the responses and includes up-to-date techniques used for patients with and without seizure control. At the end of each case a few salient citations are referenced, as are a few of the more pertinent articles that the reader can reference to obtain an overview of the topic.

    Neuromodulation is an emerging field that explores the use of electrical, chemical, and mechanical interventions to heal neurological deficits. Such neurostimulation has already shown great promise with disorders and diseases such as chronic pain, epilepsy, and Parkinson's disease. This is the first concise reference covering all of the basic principles of neuromodulation in a single affordable volume for neuro-residents, fellows, and basic clinical practitioners, edited by two prominent clinical experts in the field. This volume emphasizes essential observations from all of the important clinical phases involved in any neuromodulation: targeting, intraoperative assessment, programming, complications, and complication avoidance. There are commonalities to all neuromodulation procedures that must be brought to the forefront to form a cohesive presentation of neuromodulation, and such emphasis will give readers a more solid grounding in the fundamentals needed to embrace this field as a cohesive clinical entity.

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive modality for neuroimaging that has been widely applied into various clinical and scientific studies. In many applications, one particular challenge for MRI is the scanning speed and efficiency. Three major novel fast neuroimaging techniques are presented in this work, including high-resolution 3D diffusion imaging (3D-SNAILS), an iterative reconstruction algorithm for high accelerating parallel imaging (PRUNO), and motion insensitive 3D non-contrast perfusion imaging (3D-PCASL-PROMO). 3D DWI and DTI provide attractive features such as isotropic resolution, high SNR and good tractography. However, 3D volumetric DWI/DTI scans suffer from long scan time and severe motion artifacts. In this project, a steady-state multi-shot pulse sequence is demonstrated to perform fast high resolution 3D diffusion imaging, in which 3D self-navigated interleaved rotating spirals (3D-SNAILS) are used as readout trajectories. This acquisition scheme has low sensitivity to motion induced phase errors and the inherent navigators can be utilized to further reduce motion artifacts. In vivo human/animal results have shown that this technique can be used to perform 3D high resolution DTI studies, particularly for animals with smaller brains. GRAPPA has been a successful k-space data-driven reconstruction algorithm for parallel imaging during the last decade. However, the performance of GRAPPA drops significantly as the accelerating factor increases. A novel iterative method termed parallel reconstruction using null operations (PRUNO) is developed in this project. In this approach, both data calibration and image reconstruction are formulated into generalized linear system equations based on intrinsic small k-space nulling kernels. And a conjugate-gradient (CG) method is proposed to solve the reconstruction equation feasibly. With more accurate problem formulation and higher calibration efficiency, PRUNO produces much better image quality than GRAPPA, especially under high accelerating factors. Pulsed continuous arterial spin labeling (PCASL) is a novel technique for 3D whole-brain perfusion imaging. However, a whole brain clinical PCASL protocol takes long imaging time due to multiple image acquisitions and averages. A real-time motion correction algorithm is thus desired for such a protocol. Prospective motion correction (PROMO) is a navigator based module, which can be easily inserted into various MR pulse sequences for real-time 3D motion estimation and correction. PROMO is successfully integrated into PCASL in this project. Our preliminary results show that the new pulse sequence is much more robust against patient motions and PROMO navigators have almost no negative influence to the imaging sequence. In addition, brief abstracts of two other fast imaging projects are also demonstrated in this dissertation, including a fast T2* imaging pulse sequence called iESGRE, and 7T diffusion imaging of rats using SNAILS.

    "The book addresses the question of structural and functional differences between the female brain and the male brain. Are there differences? How good is the evidence? Where do the differences lie? Are there differences in the neuroanatomy of females, and if so, where? Do females and males process information differently, and if so, how? The author puts the relative lack of information on the female brain into historical perspective and reviews empirical evidence relevant to the different aspects of brain structure and function."--Jacket.

    Folding for the Synapse addresses the current view on how protein folding and misfolding, controlled by molecular chaperones, contribute to synapse function and dysfunction. Molecular chaperones have been studied in relation to de novo protein folding, but there is increasing awareness that chaperone function is required for the regulation of protein dynamics when functioning physiologically as an isolated moiety or part of a protein complex. This book will introduce both important concepts of folding machineries and give examples of the biological relevance of further chaperone functions.

    Carollia perspicillata, a tropical species, is the only bat that has essentially been domesticated and can be maintained and propagated in a research environment utilizing simple, inexpensive husbandry procedures. This atlas contains the first quality treatment of a bat species, and is unique in its use of NeuN staining. The NeuN preparations used selectively stain neurons in a sharp black coloration that fills not only the cell body but extends a short distance along the proximal dendrites. Thus, as distinct from the traditional nissl stains, the NeuN generates a quasi Golgi-like image of the neurons, providing a more intimate view of the neurons than can be obtained from nissl staining. In addition, the background is essentially white, facilitating high-contrast photography and allowing for gray-tone illustration without any loss of information. The NeuN procedure does not stain axons, and since it does not stain glial cells or their nuclei, the noise ordinarily generated in nissl stains by the presence of glial cells among the neurons and in the white matter is entirely eliminated. The Forebrain Atlas of the Short-tailed Fruit Bat also includes nissl stained sections for comparison. Since it is known that NeuN is not expressed in certain neurons, such as Purkinje cells, olfactory bulb mitral cells, and the cells of the paraventricular and supraoptic nuclei, the nissl stained sections are also included to provide complementary views of such structures.

    Since 2009, a revolution has been witnessed in Alzheimer's Disease genetics. New genetic links are being discovered at an unprecedented pace and our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration have taken a quantum leap forward. This book provides a thorough description of the genes that have been implicated in the aetiology of late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) based on evidence of genetic association. These "AD susceptibility genes" are described both in their genomic and cellular context, as well as with respect to their known or suspected molecular functions. Although these genes are not sufficient to explain all of the genetic contributions to LOAD, they represent the best replicated set of genes to date. Undoubtedly the list will grow as more advanced genomic approaches towards the identification of novel LOAD genes progresses.

    Complex behaviours are the product of intercellular signalling events, but their intracellular effectors are present in most cell types. The best-studied example of such architecture is the circadian clock, which directs all diurnal behaviour and physiology, and whose central mechanism is present in most body cells. We present below a method to look at its properties via transcriptional reporters virally delivered to primary cells. By studying primary fibroblasts cultivated from skin biopsies in different human subjects, we have been able to analyse the molecular underpinnings of variance in human daily behaviour. Similar methodologies could be applied to other signalling pathways.

    Although high income countries, including the G8, have borne the brunt of the dementia epidemic, this is a global phenomenon. Most people with dementia live in low and middle income countries, and most of the dramatic increases in numbers affected, through to 2050, will occur in those regions. In a spirit of international cooperation and solidarity we urge the G8 governments to sponsor intergovernmental action to make dementia a global priority. Crucially, this must include opening up access to diagnosis and current evidence-based treatment and care. All countries worldwide are failing in this basic objective. Action to address this problem should be balanced, as a priority, with research to improve treatment options and quality of care.

    Glucocorticoids (GCs) are stress hormones that are well-known for their potent and pleiotropic anti-inflammatory effects. In the injured CNS, their anti-inflammatory properties could be particularly beneficial due to the often detrimental effects of excessive inflammation in the brain. In more recent years, however, it has become clear that GCs do not always decrease inflammation and can even augment aspects of the immune response. The research presented in this doctoral dissertation describes the impact of this increased inflammatory response in the CNS using animal models of excitotoxicity and hypoxia/ischemia. Specifically, both exogenous GC treatments and the endogenously released GCs post-injury were found to increase immune cell activation (both in phenotype and in p65 nuclear translocation) in both rat and mouse models of excitotoxic hippocampal neuron death and in a mouse MCAO stroke model. These increased inflammatory responses are likely to be mediated by an unexpected GC-suppression of several anti-inflammatory cytokines including CX3CL1 and CD22 and failure of GCs to activate some of their normal anti-inflammatory targets like IkBa, IL-1ra, and MKP-1. Furthermore, these GC-augmented inflammatory responses are necessary for GCs to make more neurons die from either of these injuries. Taken together, this work demonstrates that cellular inflammation is not kept in check by GCs in the forebrain; instead, GCs worsen hippocampal and cortical neuron death, at least in part, by increasing the neurotoxicity of CNS inflammation.

    This Guide assesses the key clinimetric attributes in the assessment of Parkinson's Disease (PD), with the intention to offer rapid and pragmatic information on the most relevant scales used in PD. Parkinson?s disease affects approximately 4 million people globally and is most commonly seen in people over the age of 50. The disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system, and presents a number of movement and cognitive symptoms, thereby greatly affecting a patients quality of life. The use of scales for assessment in neurological disorders such as PD arises from the need to quantify disorders and states (such constructs as disability, symptoms, quality of life). Assessment scales are often categorised into two categories: generic (i.e. those scales usable in any health condition), and specific (i.e. scales developed for exclusive use in PD). They can have a variety of components: single-item and multi-item or composite scale; unidimensional and multidimensional; and as disease-centered and patient-centered measures. The creation and validation of scales is complex, with scales undergoing numerous studies to assess criteria such as acceptability, reliability, and responsiveness. In the process of validation of a scale the following attributes should be tested to ascertain whether a scale is an effective instrument of measurement.

    The recent surge of interest in the neuroscience of autism, HIV/AIDS, cancer, Alzheimers, and other disorders has brought with it an increasing awareness of the effects of medical conditions on the brain and behavior-an awareness extending through the research and practice arenas, among those working with pediatric and adult clients alike. Comprehensive in scope and highly detailed in its coverage, the Handbook of Medical Neuropsychology is organized to give readers knowledge of the field, whether one needs to understand a clinical evaluation, design a research study, or gain a deeper understanding of disease processes and corresponding behaviors. Featuring the most up-to-date information on cognitive neuroscience to enhance the work of the practitioner, the student, or the researcher, the book handles theory, historical background, practical considerations, and controversial areas with clear explanations, clinical expertise, and real-world insight, and critiques diagnostic and assessment tools specific to disorders. The wide selection of commonly seen and rarely encountered diagnoses covered includes: . Primary nervous system disease and injury. . Vascular system disease. . Developmental, genetic, and structural disorders. . Dementia and normal aging. . Immune-related disorders. . Endocrine disease. . Metabolic conditions. . Plus a chapter on current and emerging approaches to rehabilitation. Opening out a specialty as it grows in importance, the Handbook of Medical Neuropsychology is an essential resource for the neuropsychology clinician, researcher, or graduate student. It will be stimulating and relevant reading for years to come.

    Over the past 30 years there have been significant advances in our understanding of multiple sclerosis (MS) due to the use of MRIs to better visualize the disease and because of the introduction of new ameliorating drugs. However, MS is still an incurable disease and diagnosis remains challenging for many physicians; for instance symptoms often mimic MS and there is not a specific test for the disease. To ensure optimal patient care there is a need for physicians to remain up to date with new drugs on the market, disease detection, diagnosis, and latest management options. The Handbook of Multiple Sclerosis (Second Edition) provides a concise, easily assessable guide for all healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and management of this condition, including standard therapies, as well as more novel treatments. The book includes comprehensive evaluations of the pharmacological treatments available, including novel investigational agents currently in development.

    "Neuroscientists employ many different techniques to observe the activity of the brain, from single-channel recording to functional imaging (fMRI). Many practical books explain how to use these techniques, but in order to extract meaningful information from the results it is necessary to understand the physical and mathematical principles underlying each measurement. This book covers an exhaustive range of techniques, with each chapter focusing on one in particular. Each author, a leading expert, explains exactly which quantity is being measured, the underlying principles at work, and most importantly the precise relationship between the signals measured and neural activity. The book is an important reference for neuroscientists who use these techniques in their own experimental protocols and need to interpret their results precisely; for computational neuroscientists who use such experimental results in their models; and for scientists who want to develop new measurement techniques or enhance existing ones"--Provided by publisher.

    Neuroendocrinology, the discipline concerned with how the nervous system controls hormonal secretion and how hormones control the brain, is pivotal to physiology and medicine. Neuroendocrinology has disclosed and underpins fundamental physiological, molecular biological and genetic principles such as the regulation of gene transcription and translation, the mechanisms of chemical neurotransmission and intracellular and systemic feedback control systems. Reproduction, growth, stress, aggression, metabolism, birth, feeding and drinking and blood pressure are some of the bodily functions that are triggered and/or controlled by neuroendocrine systems. In turn, neuroendocrine dysfunction due to genetic or other deficits can lead, for example, to infertility, impotence, precocious or delayed puberty, defective or excessive growth, obesity and anorexia, Cushing's Syndrome, hypertension or thyroid disorders. These as well as neuroendocrine tumors are some of the themes covered in the 36 chapters of the Handbook. Drafted by internationally acknowledged experts in the field, the Handbook chapters feature detailed up-to-date bibliographies as well as "how do we know?" call out sections that highlight the experimental or technical foundations for major concepts, principles, or methodological advances in each area. Aimed at senior undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty in neuroscience, medicine, endocrinology, psychiatry, psychology and cognate disciplines, the Handbook of Neuroendocrinology satisfies an unmet need that will prove useful at the laboratory bench as well as in the office.

    Neuroprotection has been placed on a firm scientific basis during the past decade due to an improved understanding of the molecular basis of neurological diseases and the knowledge that treatment of neurological disorders should not be merely symptomatic but preventative against the progression of the underlying disease, as well as regenerative. The Handbook of Neuroprotection serves as a comprehensive review of neuroprotection based on knowledge of the molecular basis of neurological disorders. Neuroprotective effects of older, established drugs, as well as new drugs in development, are well documented in this detailed volume, featuring the most cutting-edge and innovative methods currently in use. In-depth and authoritative, The Handbook of Neuroprotection features a compendium of vital knowledge aimed at providing researchers with an essential reference for this key neurological area of study.

    "When Handbook of Normative Data for Neuropsychological Assessment was originally published in 1999, it was the first book to provide neuropsychologists with summaries and critiques of normative data for neuropsychological tests." "Locator tables guide the reader to the sets of normative data that are best suited to each individual case, depending on the demographic characteristics of the patient, and highlight the advantages associated with using data for comparative purposes. Those using the book have the option of reading the authors' critical review of the normative data for a particular test, or simply turning to the appropriate data locator table for a quick reference to the relevant data tables in the Appendices." "The second edition includes reviews of 15 new tests. The way the data are presented has been changed to make the book easier to use. Meta-analysis tables of predicted values for different ages (and education, where relevant) are included for nine tests that have a sufficient number of homogeneous datasets." "No other reference offers such an effective framework for the critical evaluation of normative data for neuropsychological tests. Like the first, the second edition will be welcomed by practitioners, researchers, teachers, and graduate students as a unique and valuable contribution to the practice of neuropsychology."--BOOK JACKET.

    Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability throughout the world. Intravenous lytics and endovascular stroke treatment were demonstrated to be highly beneficial in clinical trials and in achieving net cost savings. However, time is of the essence in the management of stroke as for every minute that stroke is left untreated, an estimated 1.9 million neurons are destroyed. An optimized stroke pathway can dramatically impact patient outcome. Every medical service will differ.This book offers a concise and practical guide on how to set up and efficiently run an acute stroke service tailored to the needs of the individual center as a provider of primary, secondary, or tertiary care. It documents the essential knowledge on current imaging and treatment options and offers guidance in organizing a site-specific stroke pathway that will ensure the quickest possible provision of treatment, thereby optimizing benefit to the patient and maximizing cost-effectiveness. The authors played an integral part in the development and operation of one of Europe's most successful early stroke centers and also have experience of the factors that can undermine the creation of world-class stroke units. On this basis, they address the key aspects of the stroke pathway and explain how organizing this can reduce the number of severe outcomes by ensuring that appropriate steps are taken during the early moments after stroke when intervention can make a profound difference. The challenging, multidisciplinary nature of care is emphasized, and this handbook will be an invaluable source for every member of the stroke team, including doctors, nurses, stroke coordinators, emergency and rehabilitation providers as well as hospital administrators.

    "Hydatid disease, a zoonotic infection caused by a tapeworm of the genus Echinococcus, has been encountered in various organs in humans. In spite of all the advances in imaging techniques and therapeutic methods, hydatidosis of the central nervous system is still a life-threatening condition in infested areas of the world. Geographical regions affected include the Middle East, Mediterranean countries, South America, Central and Eastern Europe, South Africa, India, and Australia. This is the first comprehensive reference book on hydatidosis of the central nervous system. It is written and edited by leading international authorities from infested areas and provides an in-depth review of diagnosis and management of the disease. Clinical and neuroradiological findings are extensively documented with the aid of numerous original photographs, and the role of surgical intervention and chemotherapy is carefully appraised. In addition to the provision of detailed current evidence, future avenues and innovative therapeutic philosophies are discussed. This book will serve as an ideal source of up-to-date information for all with an interest in this debilitating disease."--Publisher's website.

    Adult neurogenesis has been questioned for many years. In the early 1900s, a dogma was established that denied new neuron formation in the adult brain. Adult neural stem cells are undifferentiated cells that are present in the adult brain and are capable of dividing and differentiating into glia and new neurons.

    This thesis examines a neural substrate (i.e. dopaminergic signaling) of reward, by integrating techniques designed to manipulate and quantify changes in behavior, neural activity, and neurotransmitter release in freely-moving animals. Dopaminergic signaling is essential to the brain's reward system. The majority of dopaminergic neurons reside in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) and project to diverse brain regions including the nucleus accumbens (NAc), one of the major integrative hubs of reward signals. Dopaminergic neurons are known to fire in two distinct modes (phasic, > 15Hz; tonic, < 10Hz) under different behavioral conditions. Both firing modes are known to be involved in multiple reward-related behaviors in normal and neuropsychiatric conditions. However, the casual role of dopaminergic neuron activity in reward-related behaviors remains unclear, largely due to a lack of technologies to selectively control dopaminergic neuron signaling in freely-moving animals during reward-related behavioral tasks. To solve this problem, we first developed a set of optogenetic technologies to selectively control dopaminergic neuron activity in vivo. By targeting a light-sensitive microbial opsin, channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2), to the VTA dopaminergic neurons we were able to modulate dopaminergic neuron activity in freely-moving mice during behavioral tasks. We accomplished this using a thin optical fiber to deliver precisely-timed trains of light flashes directly into the VTA. We found that phasic and not tonic firing evoked by light in dopaminergic neurons is sufficient to mediate a strong conditioned place preference in rodents in the absence of other reward. Similarly, phasic dopaminergic neuron firing reinforces the lever-pressing behavior during an operant conditioning task. Phasic firing also induced substantial transient dopamine release in NAcc, as measured by fast scan cyclic Voltammetry (FSCV). Together, our behavioral and electrochemical data demonstrate a causal role of phasic dopaminergic neuron firing in behavioral conditioning. The integration of cell-specific targeting techniques with electrophysiological, behavioral, and biochemical readout methods proves to be a powerful approach to studying the role of dopaminergic signaling in the brain reward system and is likely to prove effective in the study of neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression and addiction.

    "Acute neurologic diseases encompass a wide spectrum of medical illnesses with neurological manifestations which require rapid clinical, paraclinical and laboratory evaluation as patients are evaluated in the emergency department or acute care clinics. In the last decade, imaging has assumed far greater importance in the initial assessment of these patients, and is responsible for much of the cost and resources in the early, critical evaluation. However the optimal approach to utilization of imaging for thorough, yet efficient and cost-responsible care remains poorly defined for many acute neurologic presentations"--Provided by publisher.

    The scalp and cortex lie like pages of an open book on which the cortex enciphers vast quantities of information and knowledge. They are recorded and analyzed as temporal and spatial patterns in the electroencephalogram and electrocorticogram. This book describes basic tools and concepts needed to measure and decipher the patterns extracted from the EEG and ECoG. This book emphasizes the need for single trial analysis using new methods and paradigms, as well as large, high-density spatial arrays of electrodes for pattern sampling. The deciphered patterns reveal neural mechanisms by which brains process sensory information into percepts and concepts. It describes the brain as a thermodynamic system that uses chemical energy to construct knowledge. The results are intended for use in the search for the neural correlates of intention, attention, perception and learning; in the design of human brain-computer interfaces enabling mental control of machines; and in exploring and explaining the physicochemical foundation of biological intelligence.

    This atlas is a detailed guide to the imaging appearances of gliomas following treatment with neurosurgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Normal and pathological findings are displayed in detailed MR images that illustrate the potential modifications due to treatment. Particular emphasis is placed on characteristic appearances on the newer functional MR imaging techniques, including MR spectroscopy, diffusion-weighted imaging, and perfusion imaging. These techniques are revolutionizing neuroradiology by going beyond the demonstration of macroscopic alterations to the depiction of preceding metabolic changes at the cellular and subcellular level, thereby allowing earlier and more specific diagnosis. A key section comprising some 40 clinical cases and more than 500 illustrations offers an invaluable clinical and research tool not only for neuroradiologists but also for neurosurgeons, radiotherapists, and medical oncologists.

    "Modern imaging techniques have allowed researchers to non-invasively peer into the human brain and investigate, among many other things, the acute effects and long-term consequences of drug abuse. Here, we review the most commonly used and some emerging imaging techniques in addiction research, explain how the various techniques generate their characteristic images and describe the rational that researchers use to interpret them. In addition, examples of seminal imaging findings are highlighted that illustrate the contribution of each imaging modality to the expansion in our understanding of the neurobiological bases of drug abuse and addiction, and how they can be parlayed in the future into clinical and therapeutic applications"--Provided by publisher.

    Recent research has revealed the importance of immunological mechanisms and inflammation in delaying damage and/or promoting repair after an acute injury to the central nervous system. This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the role of immunological mechanisms and therapies for treating acute neurological injuries such as cerebral ischemia, hemorrhage, and brain and spinal cord trauma. In several sections, the contributing authors provide a review of immunological mechanisms involved in neurological injury and of various translational and clinical research aimed at harnessing those mechanisms for better patient outcomes.

    Lysosomal storage disorders are inherited diseases caused by defects in lysosomal function. The free sialic acid storage disorders are allelic diseases that are caused by mutations in the gene encoding a lysosomal membrane protein called sialin. This protein transports the acidic sugar, sialic acid, out of lysosomes after it has been cleaved off of glycoconjugates undergoing degradation. Accumulation of sialic acid in lysosomes defines these disorders, but it is not known how this biochemical defect leads to the clinical manifestations. Significant advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology and in treatment have been hindered by the lack of an animal model. In the studies described here I characterize a sialin deficient mouse and provide evidence that it faithfully models important aspects of the human disease. A major finding in the human disease and in the sialin-/- mouse is impaired central nervous system (CNS) myelination. To investigate potential mechanisms underlying CNS hypomyelination, I studied oligodendrocyte development and myelination in optic nerves of the sialin deficient mice. I found reduced numbers of myelinated axons, but the myelin that was present appeared grossly normal. Migration and density of oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs) were normal; however, I observed a marked decrease in the number of postmitotic oligodendrocytes and an associated increase in the number of apoptotic cells during the later stages of myelinogenesis. These findings suggest that a defect in maturation of cells in the oligodendrocyte lineage leads to increased apoptosis and underlies the myelination defect associated with sialin loss. I hypothesized that improper metabolism of sialic acid containing proteins and lipids (gangliosides) may explain some aspects of the disease phenotype. I found a delay in the developmentally regulated reduction in expression of polysialic acid-neural cell adhesion molecule (PSA-NCAM), a glycoconjugate that inhibits myelin formation, which provides a potential molecular mechanism for the impaired myelination and reduction in oligodendrocyte number. Further, I found elevated levels of gangliosides in the sialin-/- mouse brain with the most noticeable change in the level of ganglioside GM2. To further studies of the myelination defect, I have established a cerebellar slice-OPC coculture myelination assay. This ex vivo system will allow investigators to test specific hypotheses about the cellular and molecular basis of the myelination defect and can eventually be used to assess potential treatments.

    Inflammatory diseases of the CNS are playing an increasingly important role in the clinical practice of neuroradiology. Neuroimaging contributes greatly to the differentiation of infectious (e.g., viral encephalitis and pyogenic brain abscess) and noninfectious (e.g., multiple sclerosis) inflammatory brain diseases and to the distinction between brain inflammation and other brain diseases, e.g., neoplastic or ischemic. This second, updated edition of Inflammatory Diseases of the Brain provides a comprehensive overview of the field from a neuroradiological point of view. In order to ensure a standardized approach throughout the book, each disease-oriented chapter is again subdivided into three principal sections: epidemiology, clinical presentation, and therapy; imaging; and differential diagnosis. A separate chapter addresses technical and methodological issues and imaging protocols. An important focus of the book is the current role of advanced MR imaging techniques, such as diffusion and perfusion MRI and MR spectroscopy, in the differentiation of inflammatory and other brain diseases. All of the authors are recognized experts, and the numerous high-quality and informative illustrations include some not contained in the first edition. This book will be of great value not only to neuroradiologists but also to neurologists, neuropediatricians, and general radiologists.

    Cerebral ischemia from cardiac arrest, stroke, and subarachnoid and intracerebral hemorrhage, together with trauma, epilepsy, and other CNS pathologies, continue to impose immense burdens of morbidity and mortality the world over. Despite many decades of research aimed at understanding the genetic and molecular basis of these pathologies, therapeutics developed on the basis of blocking 'known' injury mechanisms can actually claim few clinical successes. The field of CNS "preconditioning" was born from the preclinical finding more than 20 years ago that intentional activation of innate, cytoprotective factors could provide robust protection, or "tolerance" against cerebral ischemic injury. Herein, up-to-date summaries on all aspects of preconditioning for CNS disease, including the emerging topics of postconditioning and remote pre- and post-conditioning, are provided by the leading scientists in the field. The translational potential of both preclinical and clinical advances is underscored throughout, with the hope of accelerating the bench-to-bedside success of endogenous cytoprotection as a therapeutic strategy. Jeffrey M. Gidday PhD, Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at Washington University School of Medicine, has been working in the field of CNS preconditioning for 18 years, and has numerous publications on preconditioning-induced protection in the setting of several different cerebral and retinal pathologies. Miguel A. Perez-Pinzon PhD is Professor of Neurology/Neuroscience, Vice-Chair for Basic Science of Neurology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. He began studies of ischemic preconditioning in 1995 and for many years prior to that worked in the field of anoxia tolerance, publishing close to 50 peer-reviewed articles and many book chapters on these topics. John H. Zhang MD PhD is Professor of Neurosurgery, Anesthesiology, and Physiology, and Vice-Chair of the Basic Science Department at the Loma Linda University School of Medicine. His research interests include stroke and medical gases, and he has published papers related to pre-, post- and remote-conditioning in subarachnoid hemorrhage, focal cerebral ischemia, and neonatal brain injury.

    This book follows a successful symposium organized in June 2009 at the Human Brain Mapping conference. The topic is at the crossroads of two domains of increasing importance and appeal in the neuroimaging/neuroscience community: multi-modal integration, and social neuroscience. Most of our social interactions involve combining information from both the face and voice of other persons: speech information, but also crucial nonverbal information on the person's identity and affective state. The cerebral bases of the multimodal integration of speech have been intensively investigated; by contrast only few studies have focused on nonverbal aspects of face-voice integration. This work highlights recent advances in investigations of the behavioral and cerebral bases of face-voice multimodal integration in the context of person perception, focusing on the integration of affective and identity information. Several research domains are brought together. Behavioral and neuroimaging work in normal adult humans included are presented alongside evidence from other domains to provide complementary perspectives: studies in human children for a developmental perspective, studies in non-human primates for an evolutionary perspective, and studies in human clinical populations for a clinical perspective.

    The work presented in this dissertation primarily focuses on decision-related activity in the lateral intraparietal area (LIP) and, secondarily, the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). In Chapter 1 we review the previous independent investigations indicating that these areas are separately modulated by sensory information, value information and choice appropriate to represent decisions. We argue that when both sensory and value information must be simultaneously integrated to make choices, it is unknown, if, how and when these areas integrate these factors. We present a behavioral paradigm in which animal subjects must combine sensory and value information, on a trial-to-trial basis, to make optimal choices. This paradigm is based on a well-known motion discrimination task; however, in our task the magnitude of the reward associated with each option varies from trial to trial. On some trials both options are worth equally large or small rewards. On other trials one option's reward is greater than that of the other. In Chapter 2, we demonstrate that in the unequal reward conditions subjects' choices are consistently biased towards the greater magnitude option. Additionally, we will show that this bias is independent of the motion stimulus strength and its magnitude is nearly optimal. In Chapter 3, we observe that single neurons in cortical area LIP consistently, simultaneously and dynamically represent both sensory and value information. We will argue that this representation supports an integrator model of decision making, in which sensory information is accumulated until the decision is resolved by a threshold crossing. Our results support an interpretation of this model in which value information adjusts the likelihood of a threshold crossing by iv raising or lowering the accumulator's initial state. In Chapter 4, we present a preliminary comparison between LIP and DLPFC activity, under identical conditions, suggesting they play fundamentally different roles in decision making. In Chapter 5, we discuss future lines of research.

    Since the early 1940s, when first identified as childhood psychosis and autistic psychopathy, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has continued to burgeon into a major focus of inquiry and interest among researchers, practitioners, and the public alike. With each passing decade, the number of scholarly articles addressing ASD and related disabilities continues to soar. Today, thousands of papers on autism are published annually across various disciplines and journals, making it challenging if not impossible to keep pace with, let alone synthesize, all the latest developments. Based on a solid historical foundation of autism theory and research, the International Handbook of Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorders integrates the broad scholarly base of literature with a trenchant analysis of the state of the field in nosology, etiology, assessment, and treatment. Its expert contributors examine recent findings and controversies (e.g., how prevalent autism actually is), along with longstanding topics of interest as well as emerging issues. Coverage includes: A survey of diagnostic criteria and assessment strategies. Genetic, behavioral, biopsychosocial, and cognitive models. Psychiatric disorders in persons with ASD. Theory of mind and facial recognition. Diagnostic instruments for assessing core features and challenging behaviors. Evidence-based psychosocial, pharmacological, and integrative treatments. Interventions specifically for adults with ASD. Training issues for professionals and parents. A review of findings of successful and promising therapies, coupled with guidance on how to distinguish between dubious and effective treatments. The International Handbook of Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorders is an indispensable resource for researchers, professors, graduate students, and allied practitioners in clinical child and school psychology, child and adolescent psychiatry, education, social work, rehabilitation, pediatric medicine, and developmental psychology.

    This volume acquaints the non-neuropathologist with the advantages of clinical-radiologic-pathologic correlation in neuropathology specimens, particularly in the intra-operative environment. This volume covers the enormous and sometimes insurmountable artifacts involed with freezing tissue, especially central nervous system tissue and how a good cytology preparation can add to, or even supply in isolation, a diagnosis. The text presents how to perform, and stain the cytologic preparations, and how to interpret them. The advantages and disadvantages of both frozen sections and cytologic preparations of various kinds are discussed. The presentation and format is very visual with diagrams, tables (including pearls and pitfalls), and many figures (therefore easy reading).An introductory chapter presents the pros and cons of supplemental cytology, the advantages and disadvantages of frozen sections, and the artifacts in both. Also included is an argument for knowing what the scans reveal and the impact of relevant patient history. The volume uses a case-based approach to show correlation between scan, history, frozen section and cytologic preparations.With the combination of extensive correlation of scans, cytology and frozen section with differential diagnosis, and analysis of the information crucial to the neurosurgeon in a case-based approach and with a special chapter written by a neuroradiologist, this volume is unique in presentation and utility and will be of great value to the trainee in pathology (residents/fellows), and practicing pathologists who include neuropathology in their practice, but do not have formal fellowship training in neuropathology.

    "Up-to-date, comprehensive, and beautifully illustrated, Laboratory Diagnosis in Neurology presents all the measuring parameters and methods relevant to the analysis of cerebrospinal fluid, serum, and tissues affected by neurologic disease and syndromes. Following an introduction to basic concepts, the book guides clinicians through the methods of CSF analysis, neurochemical examinations, clinical applications of neuroimmunology, microbiology and virology, neurogenetic tests, and evaluation of biopsies. Readers will learn about the equipment and various procedures, and how to effectively differentiate similar methods. In the final section of the book, the authors provide a systematic introduction to the pathophysiology and laboratory findings for specific clinical disorders, indications for particular test methods, and criteria for diagnostic interpretation"--Provided by publisher.

    "This book explores the relationships between language, music, and the brain by pursuing four key themes and the crosstalk among them: song and dance as a bridge between music and language; multiple levels of structure from brain to behavior to culture; the semantics of internal and external worlds and the role of emotion; and the evolution and development of language. The book offers specially commissioned expositions of current research accessible both to experts across disciplines and to non-experts. These chapters provide the background for reports by groups of specialists that chart current controversies and future directions of research on each theme." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

    Neurons have a limited dynamic range. To more efficiently encode the large range of natural inputs, neural circuits adapt by dynamically changing their output range as a function of the input statistics. Variance adaptation provides an informative example of this process, whereby neurons change their response characteristics as a function of variance of their input. When their input distribution changes, sensory systems shift and scale their response curves to efficiently cover the new range of input values and they focus on different segments of the frequency spectrum, for example by choosing to average out the noise in a low signal-to-noise ratio environment by low-pass filtering their input and sacrificing resolution. In multiple sensory systems, adaptation to the variance of a sensory input changes the sensitivity, kinetics and average response over timescales ranging from < 100 ms to tens of seconds. Here we present a simple biophysically relevant model of retinal contrast adaptation that accurately captures both the membrane potential response and all adaptive properties. The adaptive component of this model is a first-order kinetic process of the type used to describe ion channel gating and synaptic transmission. We conclude that all adaptive dynamics can be accounted for by depletion of a signaling mechanism, and that contrast adaptation can be explained as adaptation to the mean of a thresholded signal. A diverse set of adaptive properties that implement theoretical principles of efficient coding can be generated by a single type of molecule or synapse with just a few microscopic states. The LNK model helps to highlight important aspects of adaptation by letting us focus on individual computational blocks separately. By using the LNK model, we investigate the source of the adaptive process in On-Off retinal ganglion cells, which show strong changes in their kinetics as a function of contrast. By analyzing properties of the LNK model, we conclude that most of the adaptive effect is due to differences in the threshold of the two pathways, with a smaller contribution from different adaptive kinetics. Adaptive temporal decorrelation in the retina arises due to differential thresholding in two parallel neural pathways.

    This well-established international series examines major areas of basic and clinical research within neuroscience, as well as emerging and promising subfields. This volume on the neurosciences, neurology, and literature vividly shows how science and the humanities can come together --- and have come together in the past. Its sections provide a new, broad look at these interactions, which have received surprisingly little attention in the past. Experts in the field cover literature as a window to neurological and scientific zeitgeists, theories of brain and mind in literature, famous authors and their suspected neurological disorders, and how neurological disorders and treatments have been described in literature. In addition, a myriad of other topics are covered, including some on famous authors whose important connections to the neurosciences have been overlooked (e.g., Roget, of Thesaurus fame), famous neuroscientists who should also be associated with literature, and some overlooked scientific and medical men who helped others produce great literary works (e,g., Bram Stoker's Dracula). There has not been a volume with this coverage in the past, and the connections it provides should prove fascinating to individuals in science, medicine, history, literature, and various other disciplines. This book looks at literature, medicine, and the brain sciences both historically and in the light of the newest scholarly discoveries and insights.

    Any time we move, our brains solve the difficult problem of translating our motor intentions to muscle commands. Understanding how this computation takes place, and in particular, what role the motor cortex plays in movement generation, has been a central issue in systems neuroscience that remains unresolved. In this thesis, we took an unconventional approach to the analysis of cortical neural activity and its relationship to executed movements. We used dimensionality reduction to extract the salient patterns of neural population activity, and related those to the muscle activity patterns generated during arm reaches to a grid of targets. We found that salient neural activity patterns appeared to tightly reflect muscle activity patterns with a biologically-plausible lag. We also applied our analyses to movements that were planned before being executed, and found that a muscle-framework view of the cortical activity was consistent with previously-described predictions of movement kinematics based on the state of the cortical population activity. Overall, our results elucidate remarkable simplicity of the motor-cortical activity at the population level, despite the complexity and heterogeneity of individual cell's activities.

    Neural recording systems are fundamental to the advancement of brain-machine interfaces that can significantly improve the quality of lives of patients with neurological diseases, such as spinal cord injuries or quadriplegia. This thesis presents two newly developed wireless neural recording systems that are able to provide a high degree of usability and neural decoding accuracy. They are capable of simultaneously transmitting 32 to 96 channels of neural signals detected by an implanted neural sensor array. This work was carried out within the framework of the Hermes project and its technical design challenges will be addressed. The Hermes project is aimed at primarily developing hardware and software tools that extract neural information from the motor cortex. Those tools can enable practical prosthetic devices used to significantly ameliorate the life of patients with neurological impairments that directly affect motor functions. The first developed system, HermesD, is a 32-channel broadband transmission system using an FSK modulated carrier at 24 Mbit/s in the 3.7-4.1 GHz band. The link range extends beyond 20 m and the total power consumption is 142 mW. The HermesD system uses only COTS components and can be easily replicated. HermesD is fully operational and is currently used to transmit broadband neural data for neuroscience research in the Neural Prosthetic Systems Laboratory (NPSL) at Stanford University. HermesD is also planned as the base platform for future human trials to take place in the same laboratory. The second system that represents the next Hermes generation, HermesE, uses a novel UWB transmitter architecture implemented in a custom IC in the 65-nm CMOS technology. The transmitted signal bandwidth covers the 3.6 to 7.5 GHz frequency range. The time domain waveform is digitally programmable, allowing a very flexible control of the output spectrum to avoid interference and to allow multi-band operation. The UWB transmitter chip is part of a 96-channel broadband recording system delivering 40 Mbit/s. Its power consumption is 230 uW for a communication range of about 5 m. The antenna subsystems for these wireless recording devices presented a design challenge given the requirements for small size, large bandwidth and high efficiency. While HermesD has an operating FBW of 10%, HermesE is much more demanding in this respect, with 70% FBW, requiring unconventional antenna structures. The design techniques and performance of the antennas required to meet the specifications of both systems are also addressed in this work.

    "Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Movement Disorders is the first book to focus in detail on MRI in a range of movement disorders. Since MRI was first employed in imaging Parkinson's disease, the number of imaging techniques and their application in diagnosis and management has extended widely. The book shows various imaging strategies ranging from functional, structural and chemical methods as they relate to both motor and non-motor aspects of Parkinson's disease and other conditions such as Huntington's disease and dystonia. Chapters on MRI in surgery and using MRI as a potential outcome measure in clinical trials show the clinical relevance of methods. Novel methods including DTI, tractography and resting case studies are described in detail. The book also summarises the relevance of fMRI to various aspects of movement disorders."--Provided by publisher.

    Mathematical Neuroscience is a book for mathematical biologists seeking to discover the complexities of brain dynamics in an integrative way. It is the first research monograph devoted exclusively to the theory and methods of nonlinear analysis of infinite systems based on functional analysis techniques arising in modern mathematics. Neural models that describe the spatio-temporal evolution of coarse-grained variables-such as synaptic or firing rate activity in populations of neurons -and often take the form of integro-differential equations would not normally reflect an integrative approach. This book examines the solvability of infinite systems of reaction diffusion type equations in partially ordered abstract spaces. It considers various methods and techniques of nonlinear analysis, including comparison theorems, monotone iterative techniques, a truncation method, and topological fixed point methods. Infinite systems of such equations play a crucial role in the integrative aspects of neuroscience modeling. The first focused introduction to the use of nonlinear analysis with an infinite dimensional approach to theoretical neuroscience. Combines functional analysis techniques with nonlinear dynamical systems applied to the study of the brain. Introduces powerful mathematical techniques to manage the dynamics and challenges of infinite systems of equations applied to neuroscience modeling.

    Cortical brain-machine interfaces, or BMIs, is a relatively new field with the potential to provide many different clinical treatments, particularly for fully paralyzed patients. In these applications, multichannel electrode arrays are implanted into motor cortical areas in order to extract useful control signals. My research focuses on taking proof-of-concept academic BMI systems, and solving the engineering challenges that currently prevent them from being used in a clinical setting. These challenges include running a BMI for more than a few hours or a single day, and finding ways to minimize the size, cost, and operational complexity of the complete system. This dissertation includes an analysis of neuron stability over long timescales. I will show that the relationship between neurons in motor cortices and behavior remains stationary over time despite substantial noise, which could mitigate some concerns about long-term BMI performance. I will also discuss the development of HermesC, a wireless system for recording multichannel neural data from freely moving primates. This device dramatically reduces the size and cost of current recording technology for real-time neural prosthetic systems, and could be useful for human clinical trials. It may also enable neural prosthetic studies with animals in a less constrained setting. Combining traditional neural recordings with overnight wireless neural recordings, I will also show that there are substantial changes in neural waveforms from single neurons across days. However, the quality of neural decodes (the extraction of useful control signals) is only slightly improved by sorting individual units rather than using simple threshold crossings. This may enable long term BMI operation because multiunit neural "hash" on electrode arrays tends to persist for a long time, perhaps years, after single neuron signals have declined due to various tissue responses. In fact, other recent work from this project has demonstrated high performance neural decodes using only threshold crossings on arrays ~2.5 years after implantation.

    Tremor is intimately linked to the numerous interactions of the central and peripheral nervous system components tuning motor control, from the cerebral cortex up to the peripheral effectors. Activities of central generators, reflex loop delays, inertia, stiffness and damping are all factors influencing features of tremor. This book discusses the pathophysiology of tremor including membrane mechanisms and rodent models, the advances in genetics and the musculoskeletal models pertinent to body oscillations. The main forms of tremor encountered during clinical practice are considered, taking into account neuroimaging aspects. The book covers recent advances in methodologies and techniques of assessment, and provides practical informations for the daily management. In addition to pharmacological treatments, neurosurgical approaches such as deep brain stimulation (DBS) and thalamotomy are discussed. Emerging techniques under development are also introduced. Future challenges are also presented.
