    Zang-Hee Cho, editor ; Fernando Calamante, Je-Geun Chi, co-editors.
    The introduction of techniques that permit visualization of the human nervous system is one of the foremost advances in neuroscience and brain-related research. Among the most recent significant developments in this respect are ultra-high field MRI and the image post-processing technique known as track density imaging (TDI). It is these techniques (including super-resolution TDI) which represent the two major components of 7.0 Tesla MRI ? Brain White Matter Atlas. This second edition of the atlas has been revised and updated to fully reflect current application of these technological advancements in order to visualize the nervous system and the brain with the finest resolution and sensitivity. Exquisitely detailed color images offer neuroscientists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons a superb resource that will be of value both for the purpose of research and for the treatment of common brain diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis.

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

    "Alcohol is the most widely used drug in the world, yet alcoholism remains a serious addiction affecting nearly 20 million Americans. Our current understanding of alcohol's effect on brain structure and related functional damage is being revolutionized by genetic research, basic neuroscience, brain imaging science, and systematic study of cognitive, sensory, and motor abilities. Volume 125 of the Handbook of Clinical Neurology is a comprehensive, in-depth treatise of studies on alcohol and the brain covering the basic understanding of alcohol's effect on the central nervous system, the diagnosis and treatment of alcoholism, and prospect for recovery. The chapters within will be of interest to clinical neurologists, neuropsychologists, and researchers in all facets and levels of the neuroscience of alcohol and alcoholism"--Publisher's description.

    This book is a comprehensive review of the main acquired disorders of reading: hemianopic, pure and central alexia. The authors review the diagnostic criteria for each of the different types of disorder, and the efficacy of the therapeutic studies that have attempted to remediate them. The different theoretical models of adult reading, which largely rest on how the reading system responds to injury, are also discussed and evaluated. Focal brain injury caused by stroke and brain tumors are discussed in depth as are the effects of dementia on reading. This book starts with a chapter on normal reading, followed by chapters on hemianopic alexia, pure alexia and central alexia, each structured in the same way, with: a description of the condition; a historical review of cases to date; psychophysics; consideration of the causative lesions; evidence from functional imaging studies on patients and, most importantly, a review of the evidence base for treating each condition. Finally, there is a chapter on how patient data has informed how we think about reading.

    Based on a careful study of the history of Alzheimer's disease and extensive in-depth interviews with clinicians, scientists, epidemiologists, geneticists, and others, Margaret Lock highlights the limitations and the dissent implicated in this approach. She stresses that one major difficulty is the well-documented absence of behavioral signs of Alzheimer's disease in a significant proportion of elderly individuals, even when Alzheimer neuropathology is present in their brains. This incongruity makes it difficult to distinguish between what counts as normal versus pathological and, further, makes it evident that social and biological processes contribute inseparably to aging. Lock argues that basic research must continue, but it should be complemented by a realistic public health approach available everywhere that will be more effective and more humane than one focused almost exclusively on an increasingly frenzied search for a cure.

    This compelling text provides an overview of the available technology for early detection and therapeutic management of vascular risk factors to Alzheimer's before severe cognitive impairment symptoms appear. Chapters bring the reader from the trackless clinical research that has characterized Alzheimer's progress for the last 20 years, to a nexus of new ideas and concepts that can change our outlook of this dementia. In-depth examinations of various hypotheses, preventive measures, current and prospective treatments are openly and clearly explored. The author discusses in depth his proposal of the vascular hypothesis of Alzheimer's disease which has become a mother-lode for basic and clinical studies and a key approach to the prevention of this dementia. Alzheimer's Turning Point offers professionals, students and those looking to learn more about this disorder a fresh clinical perspective of this devastating disease. .

    Aminoff's Neurology and General Medicine is the standard and classic reference providing comprehensive coverage of the relationship between neurological practice and general medicine. As neurologists are asked to consult on general medical conditions, this reference provides an authoritative tool linking general medical conditions to specific neurological issues and disorders. This is also a valuable tool for the general practitioner seeking to understand the neurological aspects of their medical practice. Completely revised with new chapters covering metastatic disease, bladder disease, psychogenic disorders, dementia, and pre-operative and post-operative care of patients with neurologic disorders, this new edition will again be the go-to reference for both neurologists and general practitioners.

    Since information in the brain is processed by the exchange of spikes among neurons, a study of such group dynamics is extremely important in understanding hippocampus dependent memory. These spike patterns and local field potentials (LFPs) have been analyzed by various statistical methods. These studies have led to important findings of memory information processing. For example, memory-trace replay, a reactivation of behaviorally induced neural patterns during subsequent sleep, has been suggested to play an important role in memory consolidation. It has also been suggested that a ripple/sharp wave event (one of the characteristics of LFPs in the hippocampus) and spiking activity in the cortex have a specific relationship that may facilitate the consolidation of hippocampal dependent memory from the hippocampus to the cortex. The book will provide a state-of-the-art finding of memory information processing through the analysis of multi-neuronal data. The first half of the book is devoted to this analysis aspect. Understanding memory information representation and its consolidation, however, cannot be achieved only by analyzing the data. It is extremely important to construct a computational model to seek an underlying mathematical principle. In other words, an entire picture of hippocampus dependent memory system would be elucidated through close collaboration among experiments, data analysis, and computational modeling. Not only does computational modeling benefit the data analysis of multi-electrode recordings, but it also provides useful insight for future experiments and analyses. The second half of the book will be devoted to the computational modeling of hippocampus-dependent memory.

    The increased complexity of spinal surgical procedures in recent years has required more sophisticated anesthetic management of patients undergoing these procedures. Spine surgery anesthesia is now recognized as a distinct sub-specialty, increasingly undertaken by general anesthesiologists as well as neuroanesthesiologists. Ehab Farag describes the anesthetic management and surgical procedures at every vertebral level in both adult and pediatric patients. The most important related considerations are covered, including: Postoperative pain management. One lung ventilation during anterior thoracic spine surgery. Intraoperative neuromonitoring. Fluid management additional chapters review the radiological features of normal and abnormal spines, common complications of spine surgery and ASA closed claims relating to spine surgery anesthesia. Written by highly experienced neuroanesthesiologists and spine surgeons.

    Animal Models of Speech and Language Disorders is arguably the first book that integrates several decades of research on the neuroscience and genetics of speech and language with behavioral, systems, cellular and molecular neurobiological studies on animal communication to create a synthesis of ideas with potential translational value in neurology, neurolinguistics and speech science. Speech and language dysfunctions plague a large segment of todays young and old alike because, besides being primary afflictions, they are also an integral part of the complex symptomatology of most of the common neurological and neurodevelopmental disorders, such as stroke, dementia, intellectual disability and autism. It is therefore essential that biomedical research be focused on understanding their neurobiological and genetic bases in order to have the chance of developing rational approaches to treating them. By weaving together findings from diverse disciplines in the comparative biology of vocal communication in songbirds, bats, New World monkeys and the great apes, with the applied and translational perspective in mind, this book attempts to create awareness among researchers and students about the strengths of the comparative and evolutionary approach to the scientific understanding of speech and language, and to addressing intractable clinical problems affecting higher brain functions. Animal Models of Speech and Language Disorders will be highly instructive to researchers, clinicians, advanced speech pathology and neuroscience students, and all those who are interested in the current state of knowledge in the basic and applied aspects of speech and language.

    How do we forget? Why do we need to forget? This book intends to answer to these and other questions. It aims to demonstrate that each one is who it is due to their own memories. Thus, distinguish between the information we should keep from those we should forget is an difficult art. In this book, the author discusses about the different types of memory, the main types of forgetting (avoidance, extinction and repression), their brain areas and their mechanisms. In this sense, the art of forgetting, or the art of do not saturate our memory mechanisms, is something innate, that benefits us anonymously, keeping us from sinking amidst our own memories. The essays that compose this book go through several aspects, since individuals to societies' memory. By the end of the book, the reader will be able to understand that we forget to be able to think, to live and to survive.

    In recent years, sonography of the peripheral nervous system has gained widespread acceptance. New diagnostic applications have emerged, and the field of ultrasound-guided interventions has expanded significantly: regional anesthesia, peripheral nerve blocks, and similar techniques are now frequently performed under ultrasound guidance by anesthesiologists and pain physicians alike. This atlas of peripheral nerve ultrasound is designed to meet the daily needs of both radiologists and clinicians by allowing rapid review of typical features, knowledge of which is important for successful diagnosis and intervention.

    The number of surgical procedures performed on the brain, head, neck, and spine has increased markedly in recent decades. As a result, postoperative changes are being encountered more frequently on neuroradiological examinations and constitute an important part of the workflow. However, the imaging correlates of postsurgical changes can be unfamiliar to neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons and are sometimes difficult to interpret. This book is written by experts in the field and contains an abundance of high-quality images and concise descriptions, which should serve as a useful guide to postsurgical neuroradiology. It will familiarize the reader with the various types of surgical procedure, implanted hardware, and complications. Indeed, this work represents the first text dedicated to the realm of postoperative neuroimaging. Topics reviewed include imaging after facial cosmetic surgery; orbital and oculoplastic surgery; sinus surgery; scalp and cranial surgery; brain tumor treatment; psychosurgery, neurodegenerative surgery, and epilepsy surgery; skull base surgery including transsphenoidal pituitary resection; temporal bone surgery including various ossicular prostheses; orthognathic surgery; surgery of the neck including the types of dissection and flap reconstruction; CSF diversion procedures and devices; spine surgery; and vascular and endovascular neurosurgery.

    This book provides an overview of attentional impairments in brain-damaged patients from both clinical and neuroscientific perspectives, and aims to offer a comprehensive, succinct treatment of these topics useful to both clinicians and scholars. A main focus of the book concerns left visual neglect, a dramatic but often overlooked consequence of right hemisphere damage, usually of vascular origin, but also resulting from other causes such as neurodegenerative conditions. The study of neglect offers a key to understand the brain's functioning at the level of large-scale networks, and not only based on discrete anatomical structures. Patients are often unaware of their deficits (anosognosia), and often obstinately deny being hemiplegic. Diagnosis is important because neglect predicts poor functional outcome in stroke. Moreover, effective rehabilitation strategies are available, and there are promising possibilities for pharmacological treatments. Attention Disorders After Right Brain Damage is aimed at clinical neurologists, medics in physical medicine and rehabilitation, clinical psychologists and neuropsychologists. It will also be useful for graduate students and medical students who wish to understand the topic of attention systems and improve their knowledge of the neurocognitive mechanisms of attentional deficits. In addition, clinical researchers in neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience will find in this book an up to date overview of current research dealing with the attention systems of the human brain.

    Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are a pervasive set of neurodevelopmental disorders that are characterized by deficits in social interaction and communication. ASDs are diagnosed in 1 out of 88 children and are more common in males. ASDs are thought to be highly heritable and a wide variety of genetic mutations have been identified, including mutations in several synaptic proteins. This dissertation research explores convergent synaptic mechanisms underlying ASDs, specifically exploring several aspects of synaptic biology that are disrupted by autism-associated mutations in the ProSAP/Shank family of postsynaptic scaffolding proteins, focusing primarily on one family member, ProSAP2/Shank3, for which the genetic data is strongest. Data collected for this thesis demonstrate that ProSAP/Shank proteins act within dendritic spines to coordinate pre- and postsynaptic changes in synaptic function by regulating the activation of Neurexin-Neuroligin signaling complexes. Intriguingly, autism mutations in ProSAP2/Shank3 were found to disrupt this transsynaptic signaling, thereby functionally linking several synaptic proteins implicated in ASDs. Mechanistic experiments revealed that ProSAP2/Shank3 activation and scaffold stability within postsynaptic densities (PSDs) are zinc-sensitive and that zinc supplementation can reactivate ProSAP2/Shank3 carrying an ASD mutations, partially or fully rescuing transsynaptic signaling. Importantly, zinc deficiencies are linked to mental retardation and thus may be a risk factor for autism by contributing to synaptic dysfunction within neuronal networks.

    Autoimmune Neurology presents the latest information on autoimmune neurologic disease, the immune response to the body where organs run wild, causing the immune system to attack itself. Autoimmunity is a main element in numerous nervous system diseases and can target any structure within the central or peripheral nervous system. Over the past 20 years, significant advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology of autoimmune disorders, including the use of biomarkers has led to new diagnosis and treatment options. Neurologic conditions associated with autoimmune reactions include dementia, neuromuscular disease, epilepsy, sleep disorders, diabetes, and other common neurologic disorders and disease. This current tutorial-reference will be a must-have title for clinical neurologists, research neurologists, neuroscientists, and any medical professional working with autoimmune disease and disorders.

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

    Polarized light plays a prominent role in shaping navigational decisions and course control in a variety of insects. Work in ants, crickets and bees have highlighted the importance of a specialized subset of ommatidia in the dorsal rim of the retina, the DRA, in detecting these signals. However, the retina's full capacity to detect polarized light has not been probed, nor are the behavioral mechanisms by which animals respond to such cues known. We have developed a novel, fully-automated behavioral paradigm for detecting polarotactic responses in Drosophila, and have used genetic and behavioral approaches to address these issues. We demonstrate that when polarized UV light stimuli are displayed to populations of Drosophila, animals align their body axis with the e-vector of plane polarized light. Surprisingly, while photoreceptors in the DRA can indeed guide this behavioral response, other photoreceptors distributed across the retinal surface can do so as well. We show that that one class of UV sensitive photoreceptors, those expressing the Rh3 opsin, is both necessary and sufficient for mediating polarotactic behavior. In particular, flies in which only Rh3 expressing photoreceptors are functional can respond to UV polarized light, while inactivation of these cells blocks polarotactic behavioral responses. Moreover, ectopic expression of a green-light sensitive opsin in Rh3 expressing cells allows flies to acquire the capacity to respond to green polarized light. Detailed behavioral studies demonstrate that the ability of flies to align to the e-vector occurs via a stereotyped modulation of the flies' rotational velocity and acceleration as a function of their angular position relative to the e-vector. These studies define the precise computations necessary to explain the behavior, and provide insight into the organization of the neural circuitry that links polarized light signals to course control.

    A comprehensive, state-of-the-art contribution to a field that is rapidly developing, The Behavioral Consequences of Stroke provides a broad overview of the cognitive and neurobehavioral effects of stroke. As attention to paralysis and the more obvious physical disabilities stroke patients incur expands, greater attention is being paid today to the cognitive and neurobehavioral complications that impact stroke morbidity and even functional neurological recovery in patients. Written by an international panel of experts and edited by a neurosurgeon and by a cognitive neuroscientist, this unique title addresses the full range of issues relevant to the field, including epidemiology, general treatment, sensorimotor control after stroke, post-stroke aphasia, memory loss after stroke, post-stroke depression, the role of imaging after a stroke, and an update on some stroke clinical trials, to name just some of the areas covered. Illuminative and an influential addition to the literature, The Behavioral Consequences of Stroke will serve as an invaluable resource for neurologists, neurosurgeons, physiatrists and other physicians, as well as physical, speech and occupational therapists, nurses, psychologists, and other professionals.

    This volume brings together a series of authoritative chapters written by leading experts in preclinical and clinical aspects of pain neurobiology. It is essential reading for scientists, clinicians and students in need of a comprehensive review of behavioral readouts for the preclinical assessment of chronic pain and analgesic drug efficacy, or those with a general interest in behavioral neuroscience. At the core of this volume are emerging details of the physiology, pharmacology, and psychology of previously neglected types of chronic pain. These types include chronic post-operative pain in humans as well as animal behavioral assays that model the chronic pain of multiple sclerosis, post-herpetic neuralgia, painful diabetic neuropathy, visceral pain, latent central sensitization, and chronic muscle pain. Also emphasized are the complex bidirectional comorbidities between chronic pain and drug dependence, cognitive deficit, stress, anxiety, depression, social interaction, and prior injury history. The novel and exciting ideas introduced within this book, such as endogenous opioid dependence after tissue injury, generate real hope that effective treatment strategies for chronic pain will emerge in the near future.

    Stress is such an over-used word that it is at time difficult to define its core features. When is an environment stressful? What does a stressful environment do to the brain and to the body? What are the biological mechanisms by which a stressor affects us? How does stress contributes to the onset and the progression of mental disorders? How do the effects of stress change over the life-time of an individual? These are just some of the overarching questions addressed by this book, thanks to the contribution of some of the world leading experts on the neurobiology of stress at the pre-clinical and clinical levels. Topics include current advances on the neurobiology of stress on various neurobiological systems such as immune, hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, neurogenesis and neuroplasticity, neurotransmitter (glutamate, noradrenaline, dopamine, serotonin and endocannabinoid), neuropeptides, cognition and emotional processing as well as in utero and early postnatal effects. The clinical chapters deal with the relationship of stress and mental disorders such as depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, substance abuse and addiction, dementia and age-related cognitive decline as well as resilience to stress. Thus, this book brings together some of the most updated and authoritative views on the effects of stress of brain and behavior.

    "The parallel fields of behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry often remain divided, despite their integration into a single subspecialty. However, the needs of patients with cognitive, emotional and behavioral disorders frequently span this division. By emphasizing the principles of this developing subspecialty, Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry prepares clinicians to apply these to the evaluation and management of patients affected by neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions. Structural and functional neuroanatomy is discussed, with emphasis on frontal-subcortical circuits and the neurobehavioral functions of white matter and the cerebellum. Core clinical skills covered include: Neuropsychiatric history taking, Neurological and mental status examinations, Conventional and advanced neuroimaging and electrophysiology, Neuropsychological assessment, Forensic neuropsychiatry. Contributing authors from a broad range of clinical neuroscience subspecialties provide a comprehensive review of core topics in the field. Whether your primary training is in neurology or psychiatry, this book will develop your ability to think across the disciplines"--Provided by publisher.

    Committee on the Diagnostic Criteria for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Board on the Health of Select Populations, Institute of Medicine of the National Academies.
    "Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) are serious, debilitating conditions that affect millions of people in the United States and around the world. ME/CFS can cause significant impairment and disability. Despite substantial efforts by researchers to better understand ME/CFS, there is no known cause or effective treatment. Diagnosing the disease remains a challenge, and patients often struggle with their illness for years before an identification is made. Some health care providers have been skeptical about the serious physiological - rather than psychological - nature of the illness. Once diagnosed, patients often complain of receiving hostility from their health care provider as well as being subjected to treatment strategies that exacerbate their symptoms. eyond Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome proposes new diagnostic clinical criteria for ME/CFS and a new term for the illness - systemic exertion intolerance disease (SEID). According to this report, the term myalgic encephalomyelitis does not accurately describe this illness, and the term chronic fatigue syndrome can result in trivialization and stigmatization for patients afflicted with this illness. Beyond Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome stresses that SEID is a medical - not a psychiatric or psychological - illness. This report lists the major symptoms of SEID and recommends a diagnostic process.One of the report's most important conclusions is that a thorough history, physical examination, and targeted work-up are necessary and often sufficient for diagnosis. The new criteria will allow a large percentage of undiagnosed patients to receive an accurate diagnosis and appropriate care. Beyond Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome will be a valuable resource to promote the prompt diagnosis of patients with this complex, multisystem, and often devastating disorder; enhance public understanding; and provide a firm foundation for future improvements in diagnosis and treatment"--Publisher's description.

    Angiogenesis plays a key role in human physiology and pathophysiology. While necessary for tissue growth and development, uncontrolled angiogenesis plays a role in the progression of certain tumors as well as atherosclerosis. Lack of angiogenesis may be the basis of myocardial ischemia and stroke. Knowledge on the mechanisms of angiogenesis is growing very rapidly, and may lead to important drugs for therapy of a variety of clinical disorders. Experts from around the world have contributed a vast array of data on different aspects of angiogenesis in this volume edited by Professors Mehta and Dhalla. This information will be of immense help to basic scientists, clinicians and those involved in drug development.

    "Multiple sclerosis is the most common debilitating neurological disease in people under the age of forty in the developed world. Many publications cover medical and clinical approaches to the disease; however, The Biology of Multiple Sclerosis provides a clear and concise up-to-date overview of the scientific literature on the various theories of MS pathogenesis. Covering the main elements of scientific research into multiple sclerosis, the book contains chapters on the neuropathology of the disease as well as an account of the most extensively used animal model experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. The book contains chapters regarding the role of viruses in the development of multiple sclerosis. Viruses have long been implicated and chapters on animal models based on virus infection, as well as their possible role in the etiology of MS, are included. Of interest to MS researchers, the book is written to also be of value to postgraduate and medical students"-- Provided by publisher.

    Many children with cerebral palsy walk with excessive knee flexion, an inefficient locomotion pattern known as crouch gait that progressively worsens over time without intervention. Patients often receive surgeries to lengthen tight or spastic muscles or to correct bone malalignments, but outcomes are variable and unpredictable. The goals of this dissertation were, first, to objectively identify biomechanical factors that cause a patient to walk with excess knee flexion and, second, to use these factors to predict whether a patient's crouch gait will improve after receiving treatment. We first determined the influence of abnormal bone geometry and crouched gait postures on the function of muscles during walking using a three-dimensional model of the musculoskeletal system. Our analysis revealed that a tibial torsion deformity, a common bone malalignment, reduces the capacity of lower limb muscles to generate extension of the knee and hip joints. Excess tibial torsion may thus be a significant contributor to crouch gait and warrant surgical correction. In addition, our analysis showed that a crouched gait posture markedly reduces the capacity of most lower limb muscles to extend the knee and hip joints. These findings help explain the altered muscle activations, increased energy requirements, and increased joint loading associated with walking in a crouch gait. We also developed a multi-variable linear regression model to estimate how much subjects' crouch gait would change between hospital visits by retrospectively analyzing patients' gait kinematics over time and surgical histories. The regression model was able to explain 49% of the variance in the change in knee flexion between gait visits for the 353 subject-limbs that we analyzed. Further, the regression model classified subject-limbs as 'Improved' or 'Unimproved' with approximately 70% accuracy, which contrasts with the observed improvement rate of 48% among subject-limbs in the study. We further demonstrated that more improvement in crouch gait was expected when subjects had i) adequate hamstrings lengths and velocities, ii) normal tibial torsion, and iii) greater extensor muscle strength, three variables drawn from our knowledge about the biomechanics of crouch gait. This work establishes a new framework--combining biomechanical modeling and statistical analysis--for understanding gait pathology and objectively planning treatment.

    Peripheral nerve analysis is a challenging task for pathologists, given the advent of new diagnoses and techniques of analysis and the impact of molecular genetics. This book presents a simple, logical method for constructing a differential diagnosis based on pathology and clinical presentation. It also provides advice on the selection of ancillary molecular, immunohistochemical and genetic techniques to establish a definitive diagnosis. Clear, authoritative guidance is offered on diagnosis of the full range of neuropathies with the aid of a wealth of high-quality color photomicrographs and electron micrographs. The pathologist will benefit greatly from the identification of a variety of artifacts and normal structures occasionally encountered in nerve biopsies that need to be distinguished from specific pathologic alterations. This user-friendly, practical text will be an invaluable aid in achieving the most specific diagnosis possible.

    This is a single-authored book written by a world-class neuroradiologist with extensive experience in traumatic brain injury (TBI). It features six graphic-intense chapters depicting and expounding upon the complexity of TBI. Culled from nearly three decades of studying civilian TBI and five years of intensive study of TBI sustained from combat, terrorism, and natural disasters, this work is an exhaustive and innovative authority on the current approaches and applications of civilian and combat TBI. The text is sectored into six chapters based on pathophysiology, each augmented with numerous images and illustrations. The book gives special attention to neuroimaging, but is reinforced with relevant clinical correlation. This monograph is unique because it is first in class as an omnibus for the radiologist, neurologist, neurosurgeon, maxillofacial surgeon, emergency physician, pediatrician, ophthalmologist, and the rehabilitation team.

    With an annual rate of more than 12 million global diagnoses and 7.6 million deaths, the societal and economic burden of cancer cannot be overstated. Brain metastases are the most common malignant tumors of the central nervous system, yet their incidence appears to be increasing in spite of the advancement of cancer therapies. While much is known about primary cancers (including primary brain tumors), less work has been done to uncover the roots of metastatic disease. This volume fills that gap, serving as the first reference to focus primarily on the link between primary cancers and brain metastases. This link is explored for the most common cancer types -- lung, breast, and melanoma. Additionally, biological background as well as therapy for CNS metastases is addressed. Age and gender related trends are also discussed, as is the use of biomarkers for early detection.

    Brain Theory From A Circuits And Systems Perspective offers a theory of human consciousness as a natural result of pulsating neurons and synapses within a complex circuit. The book summarizes the electrical, as opposed to the chemical, nature of a brain, and so moves away from customary molecular biology- and biochemistry-focused explanations for consciousness. The book goes beyond the usual structures of artificial neural networks; employing first principles, a particular physical system is synthesized for conscious short term memory, as well as for associative (subconsciously edited) long term memory. It pursues the search for deeper computational power: Where ordinary concepts of logic fail to explain inspired choices concerning artistic appraisal, truth judgment, and understanding, pulsating qubit logic unleashes a fresh avenue for connectivity. Neuroquantology is discussed, including electron tunneling as a regulator of neural actions, and proposed quantum computing within microtubules. This thought provoking work led the author to reveal neurons with qubit properties, or simulated qubits. Simulated qubits do not require a coherent quantum system, and so remain robust for massively parallel controlled toggling and probabilistic computations. Brain Theory From A Circuits And Systems Perspective is supported with physical circuit examples, end-of-chapter exercises, and neuron simulation experiments, and will be valuable to anyone interested in neuro-circuits, neuro-systems and qubits.

    In recent years, the advent of MRI technology seems to have unlocked the secrets of the human mind, revealing the sources of our deepest desires, intentions, and fears. In this book, the authors argue that the explanatory power of brain scans in particular and neuroscience more generally has been vastly overestimated. Although acknowledging its tremendous potential, they believe that the overzealous application of the burgeoning field of brain science has put innocent people in jail, prevented addicts from healing themselves, and undermined notions of free will and responsibility.

    The nervous system is comprised of a complex network of neurons that are connected by specialized structures called synapses. Each synapse contains a myriad of proteins that fulfill different functions, ranging from the release and reception of neurotransmitters to the maintenance and strengthening of the signals between neurons. Given the multitude of proteins present at the synapse, one question is how do they arrive and remain there? In my thesis, I use Caenorhabditis elegans to explore the cellular processes that contribute to the proper localization of important presynaptic proteins. In the first part of my thesis, I explored how presynaptic proteins are properly localized to the signal-sending process, called the axon, and excluded from the signal receiving process, called the dendrite. In the motor neuron DA9, synaptic vesicles localize in a stereotyped region of the axon, but in cdk-5 mutants, 40% of the vesicle material is mislocalized to the dendrite. Chan-Yen Ou, a postdoctoral fellow in the lab, isolated a mutant that suppressed cdk-5, suggesting that the gene acts downstream or parallel to cdk-5. I mapped this mutant to the unc-101 locus, which encodes the [Mu]-subunit of the AP1 complex. AP complexes are players in clathrin-mediated endocytosis, and the [Mu]-subunit is the cargo recognition molecule within the complex. The AP1 complex plays a well-established role at the trans-golgi network in the cell body, but we present three results that suggest UNC-101 also acts at presynapses. The first result is the strong localization of UNC-101 at the synapse. The second result is that disrupting synaptic vesicle endocytosis (SVE) using genetic mutations causes a v similar phenotype as unc-101 mutations; animals mutant for unc-57/endophilin, unc- 26/synaptojanin, or dyn-1/dynamin 1 also suppress the cdk-5 dendritic phenotype. The third result is that the transport of synaptic vesicles from the synaptic region towards the dendrite decreases in an unc-101; cdk-5 double mutant compared to the cdk-5 single mutant, suggesting that UNC-101 is preventing retrograde flow from the synapses. While these results suggest a synaptic role for UNC-101, they do not exclude the possibility that UNC-101 also acts at the cell body. Indeed, I also show that UNC-101 affects the localization of postsynaptic proteins, which may occur by sorting proteins at the cell body. Additionally, postsynaptic proteins are unaffected by unc-57, suggesting an SVE-independent role for unc-101. Thus, I provide evidence that the AP1 subunit UNC-101 acts at presynapses and contributes to the molecular polarity of the DA9 motor neuron. The second part of my thesis contains my findings regarding a new system that I established to study synapse formation: the AFD thermosensory neuron. I found that the synaptic pattern in AFD is highly stereotyped, and I also isolated a mutant from a forward genetic screen that I mapped to the tax-4 locus. tax-4 and tax-2 encode two subunits of a cyclic nucleotide-gated channel that is necessary for sensory activity in AFD. When the genes are mutated, the localization of multiple presynaptic proteins is disrupted. Interestingly, they are not all similarly affected. Clusters of synaptic vesicles and the active zone protein SYD-2/liprin-[Alpha] are dimmer and more numerous in tax-4 and tax-2 than wild-type animals. While SAD-1/SAD kinase clusters are also dimmer, there are fewer in tax-4 and tax-2 than wild-type animals. These results suggest that sensory activity can have different effects depending on the presynaptic vi protein. Thus, for the second part of my thesis, I describe the establishment of a new system to study synapse development, the results of a screen, and a link between neural activity and the localization of presynaptic proteins.

    "Among all patients with neurological disorders, pain is probably the most common symptom experienced. Identifying, understanding and treating pain is a responsibility of health care providers in all branches of neurology. This text is about pain in neurological diseases, both 'neuropathic' pain that is recognized in sensory neuron disorders but also other types of pain less commonly considered. These latter disorders include for example, pain in Parkinson's disease, ALS and muscle diseases. The text includes specific chapters on mechanisms of neuropathic pain, updated with new ideas on its pathogenesis, and a summary of recent therapeutic guidelines. Most of the text however centers on actual patient encounters at the Neurology clinics of the Universities of Wurzburg and Calgary. This emphasis is to make the vignettes relevant to clinical practitioners but also to introduce researchers and workers in industry to the complex and challenging issues faced during direct patient encounters. Therapeutic failures are common among our vignettes, highlighting the fact that current therapeutic advances remain inadequate-a challenge for researchers to find better approaches"--Provided by publisher.

    Stroke remains one of the main causes of death and disability worldwide. Effective therapy for stroke recovery remains an unmet need. Much hope and promises are placed on cell-based therapies. The aim of this book is to provide focused yet comprehensive reviews on the current state of cell-based approaches in the treatment of stroke. The topics covered include experimental data on functional outcome after intravascular and intracerebral delivery of cells in stroke animals, followed by translational chapters which will rely heavily on the use of different imaging modalities in the tracking of cells. The last and most challenging part will describe the early phase of clinical studies, providing guidelines for future research and clinical applications. Clearly and concisely written, this text will be a useful resource for neurologists, radiologists, and neuroscientists interested in cell transplantation as a therapeutic strategy for stroke patients.

    The genetic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms of neural development are essential for understanding evolution and disorders of neural systems. Recent advances in genetic, molecular, and cell biological methods have generated a massive increase in new information, but there is a paucity of comprehensive and up-to-date syntheses, references, and historical perspectives on this important subject. The Comprehensive Developmental Neuroscience series is designed to fill this gap, offering the most thorough coverage of this field on the market today and addressing all aspects of how the nervous system and its components develop. Particular attention is paid to the effects of abnormal development and on new psychiatric/neurological treatments being developed based on our increased understanding of developmental mechanisms. Each volume in the series consists of review style articles that average 15-20pp and feature numerous illustrations and full references. Volume 2 offers 56 high level articles devoted mainly to Formation of Axons and Dendrites, Migration, Synaptogenesis, Developmental Sequences in the Maturation of Intrinsic and Synapse Driven Patterns. Series offers 144 articles for 2904 full color pages addressing ways in which the nervous system and its components developFeatures leading experts in various subfields as Section Editors and article AuthorsAll articles peer reviewed by Section Editors to ensure accuracy, thoroughness, and scholarshipVolume 2 sections include coverage of mechanisms which regulate: the formation of axons and dendrites, cell migration, synapse formation and maintenance during development, and neural activity, from cell-intrinsic maturation to early correlated patterns of activity.

    Respiration is one of the most basic motor activities crucial for survival of the individual. It is under total control of the central nervous system, which adjusts respiratory depth and frequency depending on the circumstances the individual finds itself. For this reason this volume not only reviews the basic control systems of respiration, located in the caudal brainstem, but also the higher brain regions, that change depth and frequency of respiration. Scientific knowledge of these systems is crucial for understanding the problems in the many patients suffering from respiratory failure.

    "The field of critical care medicine is in the midst of a dramatic change. Technological and scientific advances during the last decade have resulted in a fundamental change in the way we view disease processes, such as sepsis, shock, acute lung injury, and traumatic brain injury. Pediatric intensivists have been both witness to and active participants in bringing about these changes and it is imperative that all physicians caring for critically ill children in this new era have a thorough understanding of the applicability of these modern developments to the care of patients at the bedside and to keep up with the rapidly evolving field of critical care medicine. Neurologic emergencies are a common reason for admission to the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). A thorough understanding of the diseases and disorders affecting the pediatric central nervous system is vital for any physician or health care provider working in the PICU. The Central Nervous System in Pediatric Critical Illness and Injury has been written by an international panel of experts to provide readers with an in-depth discussion on the resuscitation, stabilization, and ongoing care of the critically ill or injured child with central nervous system dysfunction. This book is therefore absolutely crucial for anyone working in the PICU, from physicians, residents and fellows in critical care, neurology, and pediatrics to specialist nurses and support personnel on the PICU and all medical professionals who are involved in the management of these patients."--Publisher's website.

    This revised and enlarged edition of Cerebral Angiography, which includes new angiographic studies and illustrative drawings, offers detailed guidance on diagnostic use of the procedure. The first part of the book describes the normal anatomy of the cerebral arteries and veins, with attention to morphological aspect, embryological development, function, and vascular territories. The intraorbital and extracranial vascularization is also considered. The reader will gain a sound knowledge of normal vascular anatomy and its variations that will serve as a basis for the correct interpretation of pathological processes and their clinical significance, as covered in the second part of the book. Among the pathologies considered are vascular abnormalities, including angiomas, fistulas and aneurysms; atherosclerotic and non-atherosclerotic stenosis and occlusion of the cerebral vessels; venous thrombosis; intraorbital and extracranial vascular malformations. Pathogenesis, morphological and dynamic aspects, responsible for clinical symptoms and influencing the therapy are described. While the emphasis throughout is on the diagnostic value of cerebral angiography, many examples of endovascular treatment in different pathological situations are also presented, with discussion of indications, risks and results.

    This is a thought-provoking book which introduces a new way of thinking on the development and use of interventions. Relevant to current practice, it advocates early, targeted activity that is focused on increasing muscle activation, training basic actions and minimizing (or preventing) mal-adaptive changes to muscle morphology and function. The authors present recent scientific findings in brain science, movement sciences (developmental biomechanics, motor control mechanisms, motor learning, exercise science) and muscle biology. This knowledge provides the rationale for active intervention, underpinning the need for an early referral to appropriate services. The book features methods for promoting relatively intensive physical activity in young infants without placing a burden on parents which include assistive technologies such as robotics, electronic bilateral limb trainers and baby treadmills. This book begins by specifying the guidelines for training and exercise, outlining the rationale for such intervention. It goes on to cover the fundamentals of neuromotor plasticity and the development and negative effects of limited motor activity on brain organization and corticospinal tract development. Neuromuscular adaptations to impairments and inactivity are discussed along with the General Movement assessment that can provide early diagnosis and prognosis, facilitating very early referral from paediatric specialists to training programs. The book ends with a section featuring various methods of training with the emphasis on preventing/minimizing muscle contracture, stimulating biomechanically critical muscle activity and joint movement.

    The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is an invaluable diagnostic tool in clinical neurology, not only in the evaluation of inflammatory, degenerative, and malignant diseases of the nervous system, but also in the diagnosis of all forms of cerebral and subarachnoidal bleedings. The CSF can be easily obtained by lumbar puncture and a set of basic analyses can be conducted using relatively simple laboratory methods. By combining different CSF parameters, a wide range of diagnostic entities can be identified. However, properly interpreting the test results requires a high level of expertise and cannot be achieved by just reporting on individual analytic values. This book covers essential aspects of cerebrospinal fluid analysis and its use in the diagnosis of common neurological diseases. The first part addresses preclinical aspects such as the history of CSF, as well as the anatomical, physiological, and biological background of this valuable fluid. In addition, CSF collection, its preanalytical and methodological implications, and the increasing number of disease-specific markers in CSF are discussed in detail. Lastly, CSF analyses are put into context with clinical syndromes, demonstrating their diagnostic value in neurological clinical practice. Cerebrospinal Fluid in Clinical Neurology helps readers understand the preanalytical and analytical aspects of CSF diagnostics and offers a valuable reference guide for interpreting CSF results during the clinical work-up for neurological patients.

    Genius and dilettantism often go hand in hand. Nowhere is this truer than in the life of Charles-Edouard Brown-Sequard, the bilingual physician and neurologist who succeeded Claude Bernard as the Chair of Experimental Medicine at the College de France in Paris after having practiced in Paris, London and in the USA, especially in Harvard. For most men, making one discovery of global importance would have sufficed to satisfy their curiosity and self-image. Not so Brown-Sequard. His explanation of the neurological disparity following the hemi-section of the spinal cord was a unique achievement that added his name to the syndrome and made him immortal. Yet, the demons of his mind tormented him in his endless search for medical truths and drove him to explore other phenomena, seeking to explain and remedy them. This unique biography shows for the first time the conflict between his professional and personal life, and should appeal to all students of medical history and psychology.

    "Once an uncommon clinical finding, the Chiari malformations are now frequently seen with the advent of more sophisticated imaging modalities. With more than one hundred years of experience with these entities, medicine currently has a much better understanding of the embryology and pathophysiology of the disorder. Long-term outcome studies are becoming more prevalent and patients are commonly operated on with generally favorable results. Comprehensive in design, the The Chiari malformations focuses on the two most common forms of hindbrain herniation, the Chiari I and II malformations. Since the original description and classification of hindbrain hernias more than one hundred and twenty years ago, the Chiari malformations have revealed much of their pathophysiology and have become easily diagnosed radiologically. Indeed with the availability of MRI, more and more patients are being labeled with the diagnosis but without symptoms or appropriate symptoms. Timely and an invaluable addition to the literature, The Chiari malformations thoroughly details the progress that has been made with our understanding of these conditions, their radiologic definition, details of operative intervention and prediction of outcome"-- From publisher's website.

    The human brain is an extraordinarily complex organ containing billions of neurons forming trillions of connections. The functionality of the brain lies in this intricate circuit wiring. How do the neurons form proper connections during development? The Drosophila olfactory system exhibits very precise and stereotyped neuronal connectivity that is specified predominantly by genetic programming. The dendrites of second-order olfactory projection neurons (PNs) pattern the developing antennal lobe prior to first-order olfactory receptor neuron (ORN) axon arrival, indicating an intrinsic wiring mechanism for PN dendrites. The antennal lobe is formed of ~50 glomeruli, each of which represents a very specific gathering of axons and dendrites; ORNs expressing the same odorant receptor and PNs of the same class converge onto single glomeruli. In this thesis, I present work furthering our understanding of intrinsic PN wiring specificity. First, I examine the role of histone deacetylase Rpd3 in PNs and show that it acts largely through the transcription factor Prospero. Second, I show the actin-related protein Bap55 acts as part of the TIP60 ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complex in PNs. My thesis shows that chromatin remodeling factors, previously believed to be involved in general housekeeping, actually play important postmitotic roles and contribute to PN dendrite wiring specificity.

    It is only natural for someone in pain to attend to the body part that hurts. Yet this book tells the story of persistent pain having negative effects on brain function. The contributors, all leading experts in their respective fields of pain electrophysiology, brain imaging, and animal models of pain, strive to synthesize compelling and, in some ways, connected hypotheses with regard to pain-related changes in the brain. Together, they contribute their clinical, academic, and theoretical expertise in a comprehensive overview that attempts to define the broader philosophical context of pain (disentangling sensical from nonsensical claims), list the changes known to take place in the brains of individuals with chronic pain and animal models of pain, address the possible causes and mechanisms underlying these changes, and detail the techniques and analytical methods at our disposal to "visualize" and study these changes. Philosophical and social concepts of pain; testimonials of chronic-pain patients. Clinical data from pain patients' brains. Advances in noninvasive brain imaging for pain patients. Combining theoretical and empirical approaches to the analysis of pain-related brain function. Manipulation of brain function in animal models.

    Cilia are tiny microtubule-based organelles projecting from the plasma membrane of practically all cells in the body. In the past 10 years a flurry of research has indicated a crucial role of this long-neglected organelle in the development and function of the central nervous system. A common theme of these studies is the critical dependency of signal transduction of the Sonic hedgehog, and more recently, Wnt signaling pathways upon cilia to regulate fate decisions and morphogenesis. Both primary and motile cilia also play crucial roles in the function of the nervous system, including the primary processing of sensory information, the control of body mass, and higher functions such as behavior and cognition, serving as 'antennae' for neurons to sense and process their environment. In this book we describe the structure and function of cilia and the various tissues throughout the brain and spinal cord that are dependent upon cilia for their proper development and function.

    "Connections define the functions of neurons: information flows along connections, as well as growth factors and viruses, and even neuronal death may progress through connections. Knowledge of how the various parts of the brain are interconnected to form functional systems is a prerequisite for the proper understanding of data from all fields in the neurosciences. Clinical Neuroanatomy: Brain Circuitry and Its Disorders bridges the gap between neuroanatomy and clinical neurology. It emphasizes human and primate data in the context of disorders of brain circuitry which are so common in neurological practice. In addition, numerous clinical cases demonstrate how normal brain circuitry may be interrupted and to what effect. Following an introduction into the organization and vascularisation of the human brain and the techniques to study brain circuitry, the main neurofunctional systems are discussed, including the somatosensory, auditory, visual, motor, antonomic and limbic systems, the cerebral cortex and complex cerebral functions."--Publisher's website.

    This book provides a comprehensive overview of the development of the human central nervous system (CNS) in the context of its many developmental disorders due to genetic, environmental, and hypoxic/ischemic causes. The introductory chapters give an overview of the development of the human brain and the spinal cord, the mechanisms of development as obtained in experimental studies of various invertebrates and vertebrates, and the causes of congenital malformations. In the main part, the developmental disorders of the human brain and the spinal cord are presented in a regional, more or less segmental way, starting with neurulation and neural tube defects, and ending with developmental disorders of the cerebral cortex. These are underlined by carefully chosen clinical case studies, including imaging data and, when available, postmortem verification of the developmental disorders involved. Numerous color photographs and illustrations complement the text. This second edition emphasizes the prenatal diagnosis by ultrasound, MRI, and DTI and implements new classifications of developmental disorders.

    The impaired brain has often been difficult to rehabilitate owing to limited knowledge of the brain system. Recently, advanced imaging techniques such as fMRI and MEG have allowed researchers to investigate spatiotemporal dynamics in the living human brain. Consequently, knowledge in systems neuroscience is now rapidly growing. Advanced techniques have found practical application by providing new prosthetics, such as brain?machine interfaces, expanding the range of activities of persons with disabilities, or the elderly. The book?s chapters are authored by researchers from various research fields such as systems neuroscience, rehabilitation, neurology, psychology, and engineering. The book explores the latest advancements in neurorehabilitation, plasticity, and brain?machine interfaces among others, and constitutes a solid foundation for researchers who aim to contribute to the science of brain function disabilities and ultimately to the well-being of patients and the elderly worldwide.

    In response to changing environments, the brains of vertebrates generate diverse behaviors change their morphology and physiology. Expression of genes in the brain is regulated by light, food, social stresses, and by internal signals including reproductive cycles and metabolism. To understand how these signals can have impact behaviors and the brain, I have studied regulation of reproduction, feeding, and light detection in a cichlid fish, Astatotilapia burtoni, and a circadian rhythm generation in the Siberian hamster, Phodopus sungorus. My experimentals involved measurement of mRNA by in situ hybridization and quantitative reverse transcription-PCR (qRT-PCR). To understand circadian rhythm entrainment, I studied when and where genes involved in circadian light detection are expressed in A. burtoni. mRNA encoding melanopsin, vertebrate ancient opsin, and pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide were found in the inner retina of A. burtoni as well as in the brain. Their locations reveal a network homologous to circadian detection networks in other vertebrates. Melanopsin mRNA levels changed based on light input, as seen for some other opsin genes. Brief light stimuli can suppress circadian rhythms in several species. A two-pulse light treatment induces circadian arrhythmia in locomotor activity in P. sungorus. Loss of circadian rhythmicity in tissues and organisms could occur either through loss of intracellular rhythms or through loss of intercellular synchrony. Following the light treatment, P. sungorus had suppressed levels of mRNA encoding the core clock genes per1, per2, bmal1, and cry1 in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). Thus, circadian rhythm loss due to light stimuli involves inhibition of intracellular rhythms in the SCN. The brain controls reproductive behavior and physiology in response to relevant external and internal cues. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH1) activates the reproductive system and GnRH1 peptide and mRNA levels are higher in dominant male A. burtoni than in subordinate males. Kisspeptin, a neuropeptide acting via the kisspeptin receptor (Kiss1r), increases GnRH1 release. In A. burtoni, I found kiss1r mRNA in GnRH1 and GnRH3 neurons and in many brain nuclei and kiss1r levels were higher in dominant males than in subordinate males. Kisspeptin signaling may regulate many brain functions, including responses to social status. Reproduction requires significant investment of metabolic energy, especially when parents provide care for offspring. Female A. burtoni carry eggs in their mouths for two weeks after spawning, during which time they do not eat. Food deprivation can affect reproductive and feeding behaviors and neuropeptides. To test the hypothesis that food deprivation and reproduction interact in regulating A. burtoni brain gene expression, I measured levels of several neuropeptide and receptor gene mRNAs following mouthbrooding or starvation. Mouthbrooding females had lower levels of gnrh1 mRNA than gravid females, but higher levels of cck and hcrt. In males, food deprivation decreased gnrh1 levels, but increased gnrh2, suggesting a novel feeding role for GnRH2 in fish. Mouthbrooding may inhibit reproduction and modulate feeding neural circuits. I also developed a technique for intracerebroventricular injections in A. burtoni that should facilitate manipulation of neuropeptide receptors including GnRH receptors. Matching behavior and physiology to accommodate changing lighting, social, feeding, and reproductive influences is important for maximizing organismal fitness and I have discovered how these factors regulate several genes that may contribute to adaptive responses in changing environments.

    This new graduate level textbook, Cognition and Acquired Language Disorders: An Information Processing Approach, addresses the cognitive aspects of language and communication. It assembles the most recent information on this topic, addressing normal cognitive processing for language in adults, the cognitive impairments underlying language disorders arising from a variety of neurologic conditions, and current assessment and treatment strategies for the management of these disorders. The text is organized using an information processing approach to acquired language disorders, and thus can be set apart from texts that rely upon a more traditional, syndrome-based approach (e.g., stroke, dementia, and traumatic brain injury). This approach facilitates the description and treatment of acquired language disorders across many neurologic groups when particular cognitive deficits are identified. Other useful features of the text include assessment and treatment protocols that are based on current evidence. These protocols provide students and clinicians a ready clinical resource for managing language disorders due to deficits in attention, memory, linguistic operations, and executive functions. Unique process-oriented approach organizes content by cognitive processes instead of by syndromes so you can apply the information and treatment approaches to any one of many neurologic groups with the same cognitive deficit. Cognitive domains are described as they relate to communication rather than separated as they are in many other publications where they are treated as independent behaviors. A separate section on normal processing includes five chapters providing a strong foundation for understanding the factors that contribute to disordered communication and its management. The evidence-based approach promotes best practices for the most effective management of patients with cognitive-communication disorders. Coverage of the cognitive aspects of communication helps you meet the standards for certification in speech-language pathology. A strong author team includes two lead authors who are well known and highly respected in the academic community, along with expert contributors, ensuring a comprehensive, advanced clinical text/reference.

    The fourth edition of The Cognitive Neurosciences continues to chart new directions in the study of the biologic underpinnings of complex cognition--the relationship between the structural and physiological mechanisms of the nervous system and the psychological reality of the mind. Since the publication of the third edition, the field of cognitive neuroscience has made rapid and dramatic advances; fundamental stances are changing and new ideas are emerging. This edition reflects the vibrancy of the field, with research in development and evolution that finds a dynamic growth pattern becoming specific and fixed, and research in plasticity that sees the neuronal systems always changing; exciting new empirical evidence on attention that also verifies many central tenets of longstanding theories; work that shows the boundaries of the motor system pushed further into cognition; memory research that, paradoxically, provides insight into how humans imagine future events; pioneering theoretical and methodological work in vision; new findings on how genes and experience shape the language faculty; new ideas about how the emotional brain develops and operates; and research on consciousness that ranges from a novel mechanism for how the brain generates the baseline activity necessary to sustain conscious experience to a bold theoretical attempt to make the problem of qualia more tractable.

    Aberrant states in the nervous system, both acute and chronic are the cause of mental health diseases that affect more than a quarter of Americans over the age of 18. The mechanisms underlying mental health diseases such as Parkinsons, schizophrenia, anxiety, and depression are poorly understood, and thus current treatment approaches are often ineffective or carry with them significant side effects. In order to improve our understanding of these diseases and others, new tools must be developed that take into account the complex dynamics and diversity of circuit elements that make up the neural substrates from which these behaviors arise from. Our lab has pioneered the use of light activated microbial opsins in mammalian neurons in order that we can manipulate neural circuits with cell- type specificity, millisecond temporal precision, and millimeter spatial resolution -- termed 'Optogenetics' . These genetically encoded elements include two broad classes, excitatory channels such as Channelrhodopsin - 2 (ChR2) and inhibitory pumps such as Halorhodopsin (NpHR). The use of these tools allow for bidirectional control ove r cell types and connections that make up the neural circuits that underlie behavior within normal and diseased mental health states using simple gene and light targeting approaches. But, the nervous system's structural complexity -- both in the geometrical arrangement of neurons and connections between neurons - requires more than these basic approaches to dissect its function. To address this extra layer of complexity, the spatial control of light excitation itself could be a versatile method in combination with optogenetic approaches to dissect neural circuitry. The studies herein look to build upon current optogenetic technology by utilizing light restriction in order to control and dissect neural circuits with high precision. There are two approaches used to accomplish this: (1) in vivo and ex vivo one photon light restriction that utilize simple light restrictive optical elements to more precisely stimulate and inhibit both genetically targeted cells or connections between close brain areas and (2) in vivo and ex vivo two photon techniques that allow for fast excitation, inhibition, and bi- stable modulation at the level of a single - cell, multiple single - cells, or in some cases, sub-cellularly . The tools developed here can be used in a variety of systems and allows for the dissection of neural circuitry using optogenetics to a new level of precision that was otherwise unapproachable via any technique available to researchers. As these tools are further developed, a bridge between the individual cellular contributions to neural circuit function and behavioral neuroscience will hopefully emerge.

    Neuronal dendritic trees are complex structures that endow the cell with powerful computing capabilities and allow for high neural interconnectivity. Studying the function of dendritic structures has a long tradition in theoretical neuroscience, starting with the pioneering work by Wilfrid Rall in the 1950s. Recent advances in experimental techniques allow us to study dendrites with a new perspective and in greater detail. The goal of this volume is to provide a rsum of the state-of-the-art in experimental, computational, and mathematical investigations into the functions of dendrites in a variety of neural systems. Thebook firstlooks at morphological properties of dendrites and summarizes the approaches to measure dendrite morphology quantitatively and to actually generate synthetic dendrite morphologies in computer models. This morphological characterization ranges from the study of fractal principles to describe dendrite topologies, to the consequences of optimization principles for dendrite shape. Individual approaches are collected to study the aspects of dendrite shape that relate directly to underlying circuit constraints and computation. The second main theme focuses on how dendrites contribute to the computations that neurons perform. What role do dendritic morphology andthe distributions of synapses and membrane properties over the dendritic tree have in determining the output of a neuron in response to its input? A wide range of studies is brought together, with topics ranging from general to system-specific phenomenasome having a strong experimental component, and others being fully theoretical. The studies come from many different neural systems and animal species ranging from invertebrates to mammals. With this broad focus, an overview is given of the diversity of mechanisms that dendrites can employ to shape neural computations.

    This book reviews recent progress in cortical development research, focusing on the mechanisms of neural stem cell regulation, neuronal diversity and connectivity formation, and neocortical organization. Development of the cerebral cortex, the center for higher brain functions such as cognition, memory, and decision making, is one of the major targets of current research. The cerebral cortex is divided into many areas, including motor, sensory, and visual cortices, each of which consists of six layers containing a variety of neurons with different activities and connections. As this book explains, such diversity in neuronal types and connections is generated at various levels. First, neural stem cells change their competency over time, giving sequential rise to distinct types of neurons and glial cells: initially deep layer neurons, then superficial layer neurons, and lastly astrocytes. The activities and connections of neurons are further modulated via interactions with other brain regions, such as the thalamocortical circuit, and via input from the environment. This book on cortical development is essential reading for students, postdocs, and neurobiologists.

    This beautifully illustrated book combines a detailed exposition of the anatomy and function of the cranial nerves with practical coverage of clinical concepts for the assessment and differential diagnosis of cranial nerve dysfunction. An introductory chapter provides a brief overview of cranial nerve anatomy and function, skull base anatomy, classification of pathologies, and imaging approaches. Each of the twelve chapters that follow is devoted to in-depth coverage of a different cranial nerve. These chapters open with detailed discussion of the various functions of each nerve and normal anatomy. The authors then describe common lesions and present a series of cases that are complemented by CT images and MRIs to illustrate disease entities that result in cranial nerve dysfunction.

    Cultural neuroscience combines brain imaging techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging and event-related brain potentials with methods of social and cultural psychology to investigate whether and how cultures influence the neural mechanisms of perception, attention, emotion, social cognition, and other human cognitive processes. The findings of cultural neuroscience studies improve our understanding of the relation between human brain function and sociocultural contexts and help to reframe the 'big question' of nature versus nurture.blications and an overview on his outstanding life.

    Neurocysticercosis (neural infection by larvae of Taenia solium) occurs when humans become intermediate hosts of the tapeworm Taenia solium after ingesting its eggs, usually directly from a Taenia carrier. Nowadays, the disease is the most common helminthic infection of the nervous system in humans, and a major cause of acquired epilepsy. It has long been endemic in developing countries of Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, the Indian subcontinent, and Southeast Asia. Recently, however, mass migration from endemic to non-endemic areas and growth in overseas travel have resulted in an increase in the prevalence of cysticercosis in countries where it was formerly considered exotic. The introduction of modern neuroimaging and serologic techniques has improved the diagnosis of neurocysticercosis, and the development of potent cysticidal drugs has changed the prognosis of most affected patients. Nevertheless, much remains to be learned about this parasitic disease. This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date review of the various aspects of cysticercosis of the nervous system that will be of interest to all who are involved in the care of patients with the disease. Epidemiology, neuropathology, immunopathogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and management are all thoroughly discussed based on current evidence and practice.

    This thesis is composed of experimental and analytic work deconstructing the cerebellar learning algorithm. The central finding is that two parallel neural circuits, with independent instructive signals, support cerebellum-dependent learning. An analytic framework for this result, based on overcoming signal-dependent noise, is proposed.

    This concise, pragmatic, pocket-sized book addresses neurological contributions to the diagnosis and management of dementia through a longitudinal examination of the work undertaken in a dedicated neurological dementia clinic. It covers the use of cognitive and non-cognitive screening instruments and their diagnostic utility and the use of other diagnostic investigations: neuroimaging, neurophysiology and neuropathology. The diagnostic mix is discussed in terms of both neuropsychological syndromes and neurological diagnoses, as is the use of conventional treatments for dementia and the impact of national directives (e.g. NICE, National Dementia Strategy) on day-to-day clinical practice. Dementia in Clinical Practice: A Neurological Perspective, Second Edition is an illustrated, practical resource for medical professionals involved in the assessment and management of dementia patients. It is of particular benefit to neurologists, psychiatrists, geriatricians, primary care practitioners and those working in the fields of neuropsychology, psychology, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and nursing.

    Understanding human brain function is one of the most important endeavors in modern science. There is growing evidence that cognitive functions are executed by large-scale networks, comprising multiple interacting anatomically-connected brain areas. Although considerable progress has been made in understanding which specific brain areas are involved in particular cognitive functions, very little is known about the integrative functioning of large-scale brain networks. This is due in part to the lack of methods to pursue this line of research. This dissertation describes computational methods for detecting and characterizing large-scale human brain networks, combining data from task-free functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and structural diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), two complementary brain imaging modalities. Application of our methods to task-free fMRI and DTI data obtained from a wide range of subject populations provided new insights into how large-scale human brain networks develop, mature, and get disrupted in psychiatric and neurological disorders. More generally, this work demonstrates the power of our multimodal network-analytic approach to obtain a system-level understanding of brain function across the human lifespan.

    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.

    This book describes the different approaches for drug delivery to the brain with an emphasis on the physiology of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and the governing principles and concepts for drug delivery across the BBB. It contains cutting-edge methods for studying drug delivery and administering drugs into the brain. The book also explores different approaches for predicting human brain concentrations as well as the influence of disease and drug industry perspectives. In addition to wide-ranging coverage of physiological concepts relevant to central nervous system (CNS) drug delivery, a detailed review of brain structure, function, blood supply and fluids is also provided. In each chapter, descriptions of future challenges and unresolved questions are combined with points for discussion. This unique combination of material makes this book a valuable resource for students and for established academic and industry scientists looking to learn about state-of-the-art drug delivery research. It is also a source for stimulating new ideas among experts already performing CNS drug delivery research or working in related areas. Margareta Hammarlund-Udenaes (Ph.D.) is a Professor in Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) at Uppsala University and the Head of the Translational PK/PD Group. Her research is focused on studying pharmacokinetic aspects of BBB transport of drugs in relation to CNS effects, and it has led to the development of new concepts and methods within the BBB transport area, focusing on unbound drug relationships. Elizabeth C.M. de Lange (Ph.D.) is Head of the Target Site Equilibration Group at the Division of Pharmacology of the Leiden Academic Center for Drug Research (LACDR). Her research program focuses on the development of generally applicable predictive PK/PD models on CNS drugs using advanced in vivo animal models and mathematical modeling techniques, with a number of recent successes.

    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.

    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.

    [Beta]-amyloid-42 (A[beta]42) and [beta]-amyloid-40 (A[beta]40), major components of senile plaque deposits in Alzheimer's disease (AD), are considered neurotoxic and pro-inflammatory. In Multiple Sclerosis (MS), A[beta]42 is upregulated in brain lesions and damaged axons. Here we found, unexpectedly, that treatment with either A[beta]42 or A[beta]40 peptides reduced motor paralysis and brain inflammation in four different models of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) with attenuation of motor paralysis, reduction of inflammatory lesions in the central nervous system (CNS), and suppression of lymphocyte activation. A[beta]42 and A[beta]40 treatments were effective in reducing ongoing paralysis induced with adoptive transfer of either autoreactive Th1 or Th17 cells. High-dimensional 14-parameter flow cytometry of peripheral immune cell populations after in vivo A[beta]2 and A[beta]40 treatment revealed substantial modulations in the percentage of lymphoid and myeloid subsets during EAE. Major pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines were reduced in the blood following A[beta] peptide treatment. Protection conferred by A[beta] treatment did not require its delivery to the brain: adoptive transfer with lymphocytes from donors treated with A[beta]42 attenuated EAE in WT recipient mice and A[beta] deposition in the brain was not detected in treated EAE mice by immunohistochemical analysis. In contrast to the improvement in EAE with A[beta]-treatment, EAE was worse in mice with genetic deletion of the amyloid precursor protein. Therefore, in the absence of A[beta] there is exacerbated clinical EAE disease progression. Since A[beta]42 and A[beta]40 ameliorate experimental autoimmune inflammation targeting the CNS, we might now consider its potential anti-inflammatory role in other neuropathological conditions.

    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.

    "This both accessible and exhaustive book will help to improve modeling of attention and to inspire innovations in industry. It introduces the study of attention and focuses on attention modeling, addressing such themes as saliency models, signal detection and different types of signals, as well as real-life applications. The book is truly multi-disciplinary, collating work from psychology, neuroscience, engineering and computer science, amongst other disciplines. What is attention? We all pay attention every single moment of our lives. Attention is how the brain selects and prioritizes information. The study of attention has become incredibly complex and divided: this timely volume assists the reader by drawing together work on the computational aspects of attention from across the disciplines. Those working in the field as engineers will benefit from this book's introduction to the psychological and biological approaches to attention, and neuroscientists can learn about engineering work on attention. The work features practical reviews and chapters that are quick and easy to read, as well as chapters which present deeper, more complex knowledge. Everyone whose work relates to human perception, to image, audio and video processing will find something of value in this book, from students to researchers and those in industry"--Provided by publisher.

    "The gases termed gasotransmitters play an increasingly important role in understanding how signalling into and between cells is modulated and fine-tuned. The advent of gasotransmitters has profoundly changed our way of thinking about biosynthesis, liberation, storage and action mechanisms in cellular signaling. In recent years an impressive amount of new data, distributed throughout the existing literature, has been generated. For this book the editors have recruited distinguished colleagues in the field to summarize and review important biological, pharmacological and medical functions and their implications, as well as methods for the detection of gasotransmitters."--P.

    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.
