    Comment faire simple en neurologie clinique des premières années de la vie ? Les agressions périnatales surviennent sur un cerveau en voie de développement rapide. L'expression neurologique de ces pathologies est donc changeante, en particulier dans le domaine neuromoteur, au cours des deux premières années. Il faut donc des repères précis pour aider le clinicien à identifier les déviations possibles à chaque étape du développement. Pour ce faire, nous avions proposé dans une première édition publiée en 1998 un instrument unique applicable de la naissance à 6 ans, avec un répertoire technique, des instructions pour le codage, des réponses selon l'âge et une grille d'évaluation. Après 10 ans d'utilisation de cet instrument en recherche clinique, le contenu de cette deuxième édition s'est enrichi: - les résultats obtenus ont permis, à l'âge corrigé de 2 ans, d'identifier le spectrum des anomalies neuromotrices allant de la paralysie cérébrale incapacitante (IMOC) aux signes plus mineurs ; - cette catégorisation a montré des corrélations significatives avec la fonction cérébrale évaluée tant à l'âge préscolaire qu'à l'âge scolaire. Les anomalies neurologiques, même mineures, servent de fil conducteur pour affirmer la nature organique de certains troubles de l'apprentissage. Cet instrument de dépistage permet la mise en place anticipée de stratégies d'intervention. Il se montre également de plus en plus utile dans l'évaluation des pratiques périnatales.

    De nombreux ouvrages savants traitent des troubles spécifiques des apprentissages et des ' dys -', en particulier des troubles spécifiques du langage et des dyslexies. Au contraire les troubles non-verbaux, plus récemment mis à jour, sont beaucoup moins bien renseignés. Cet ouvrage traite de cas cliniques représentatifs et didactiques afin de rendre compte de la complexité du réel et des difficultés vécues par les patients. Ainsi, le lecteur fait face à des témoignages réalistes et pragmatiques, évoquant les obstacles, les erreurs fréquentes, les pièges dissimulés qui contribuent à égarer les professionnels. Chaque cas clinique est exploité pour guider le praticien. Les commentaires et les développements explicatifs donnent les pistes d'une réflexion ancrée dans la réalité et dans les méandres de situations habituelles (consultation ou suivi des patients). Tout au long de l'ouvrage, les auteurs interrogeront : la variété des dysgraphies, les difficultés de la phase diagnostique, les critères d'appréciation des troubles associés, les situations intriquées entre trouble neuropsychologique et psychodynamique, la stratégie thérapeutique et les choix qui guident les adaptations au cas par cas.

    This book provides a comprehensive overview of inflammatory brain diseases from a neuroradiological point of view. Such diseases may be either infectious (e.g., viral encephalitis and pyogenic brain abscess) or non-infectious (e.g., multiple sclerosis), and many of these entities are becoming increasingly important for differential diagnosis, particularly in immunocompromised persons. Neuroimaging contributes greatly to the differentiation of infectious and noninfectious brain diseases and to the distinction between brain inflammation and other, for instance neoplastic, diseases. In order to ensure a standardized approach throughout the book, each chapter is subdivided into three principal sections: epidemiology, clinical presentation and therapy; imaging; and differential diagnosis. A separate chapter addresses technical and methodological issues and imaging protocols. All of the authors are recognized experts in their fields, and numerous high-quality and informative illustrations are included. This book will be of great value not only to neuroradiologists but also to neurologists, neuropediatricians, and general radiologists.

    Les troubles de la communication chez les patients atteints de maladie d'Alzheimer, leur évaluation et leur prise en charge thérapeutique, sont au centre de cet ouvrage. Les processus du vieillissement normal et du vieillissement pathologiques sont analysés à travers l'hétérogénéité des manifestations symptomatiques, en particulier au niveau de la communication dans les maladies neurodégénératives, et à travers la perte progressive de son statut d'individu communicant du malade et de ses conséquences sur son comportement. Un outil d'évaluation des troubles de la communication des malades Alzheimer, basé sur une approche pragmatique et écologique est proposé. Ce dernier tient compte de la complexité des troubles et des influences multifactorielles qu'ils subissent, est présenté. A partir de cette évaluation, la thérapie écosystémique des troubles de la communication est proposée. Conduite par un thérapeute, celle-ci implique la participation de l'entourage familial et professionnel. Cet ouvrage est le fruit d'une longue pratique de clinicien et de chercheur dont l'objectif principal est le maintien de la communication entre le malade et ses proches. Cette communication permet, entre autres, d'éviter que des troubles d'ordre psychologique et comportemental se surajoutent aux désordres d'origine neurologique et que l'équilibre du ' système ' au sein duquel évolue le malade soit trop tôt rompu.

    Le développement désigne l'ensemble des phénomènes maturatifs des fonctions cérébrales. L'expression clinique des pathologies neurologiques et psychiatriques va donc se modifier constamment au cours de la petite enfance. Les pédiatres doivent avoir une formation de "développementaliste" pour répondre aux inquiétudes des parents et organiser une prise en charge adéquate, puis progresser vers un diagnostic précis. Dans la 2e édition, la première partie a été largement complétée, c'est-à-dire les chapitres qui concernent la physiopathologie, les méthodes d'évaluation, les cadres nosologiques et la démarche clinique adaptée à chaque situation pathologique. Des algorithmes ont été ajoutés : ils sont basés sur des recommandations consensuelles pour progresser de la simple surveillance au dépistage, puis à l'évaluation diagnostique ; ils pourront être utilisés régulièrement au cours des consultations. La deuxième partie a été également actualisée. Elle recueille les descriptions de 17 cas cliniques illustrant les démarches proposées depuis la première consultation jusqu'à l'âge scolaire. La participation du lecteur est largement sollicitée ; il faudra extraire les éléments importants de l'histoire et de la première évaluation, puis répondre à une série de questions. La première opinion sera ensuite enrichie par les dernières données de la littérature. Enfin, des nouvelles récentes sur l'évolution de chaque enfant sont apportées, quelques années après la première édition.

    A wonderfully readable, concise, but by no means superficial book that fits well in the current pedagogic environment.”

    From the Foreword by Allan H. Ropper, MD

    Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy delivers a clear, logical discussion of the complex relationship between neuroanatomical structure and function and neurologic disease. Written in a clear, concise style, this unique text offers a concise overview of fundamental neuroanatomy and the clinical localization principles necessary to diagnose and treat patients with neurologic diseases and disorders. Unlike other neurology textbooks that either focus on neuroanatomy or clinical neurology, Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy integrates the two in manner which simulates the way neurologists learn, teach, and think.

    Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy is divided into two main sections. In Part 1, clinically relevant neuroanatomy is presented in clinical context in order to provide a framework for neurologic localization and differential diagnosis. The diseases mentioned in localization-based discussions of differential diagnosis in Part 1 are then discussed in clinical detail with respect to their diagnosis and management in Part 2. Part 1 can therefore be consulted for a neuroanatomical localization-based approach to symptom evaluation, and Part 2 for the clinical features, diagnosis, and management of neurologic diseases.

    FEATURES

    • A clear, concise approach to explaining the complex relationship between neuroanatomical structure and function and neurologic disease

    • Numerous full-color illustrations and high resolution MRI and CT scans

    • Explanatory tables outline the clinical features, characteristics, and differential diagnosis of neurologic diseases and disorders

    Risk Factors for Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke address the relationship of a wide variety of vascular risk factors in the spectrum of cerebrovascular diseases. An international group of professionals the forefront of research and education, provide their expertise about environmental and genetic determinants for cerebrovascular disease and stroke. The authors aim to provide information on developments of genetic, environmental and lifestyle-related risk factors of various subtypes of stroke, and MRI-markers of cerebrovascular disease.

    One in 2 men, and 1 in 3 women after the age of 40, will develop a stroke in their lifetime. The burden of cerebrovascular disease extends far beyond that of acute clinical events such as stroke, with "covert " vascular injury on brain MRI being highly prevalent in older community-dwelling persons. Therefore, improving our understanding of the risk factors for stroke and cerebrovascular disease is of paramount importance for improving prevention strategies. Secular trends in stroke epidemiology, risk factors, and intermediate markers (including carotid ultrasound, brain MRI and circulating biomarkers) are presented. Cutting edge information on genetic, environmental and lifestyle-related risk factors of various subtypes of stroke and MRI-markers of cerebrovascular diseases are displayed. This important book is an essential reference to physicians interested in more effective primary prevention of stroke.

    Summary

    The New Benchmark for Understanding the Latest Developments of Ion Channels

    Ion channels control the electrical properties of neurons and cardiac cells, mediate the detection and response to sensory stimuli, and regulate the response to physical stimuli. They can often interact with the cellular environment due to their location at the surface of cells. In nonexcitable tissues, they also help regulate basic salt balance critical for homeostasis. All of these features make ion channels important targets for pharmaceuticals.

    Handbook of Ion Channels illustrates the fundamental importance of these membrane proteins to human health and disease. Renowned researchers from around the world introduce the technical aspects of ion channel research, provide a modern guide to the properties of major ion channels, and present powerful methods for modeling ion channel diseases and performing clinical trials for ion channel drugs.

    Conveniently divided into five parts, the handbook first describes the basic concepts of permeation and gating mechanisms, balancing classic theories and the latest developments. The second part covers the principles and practical issues of both traditional and new ion channel techniques and their applications to channel research. The third part organizes the material to follow the superfamilies of ion channels. This part focuses on the classification, properties, gating mechanisms, function, and pharmacology of established and novel channel types. The fourth part addresses ion channel regulation as well as trafficking and distribution. The final part examines several ion channel-related diseases, discussing genetics, mechanisms, and pharmaceutical advances.

    Whereas most books about neurologic examinations are disease and anatomy oriented, The Neurologic Examination: Scientific Basis for Clinical Diagnosis focuses on a pathophysiological approach to the nervous system. The authors emphasize that the scientific interpretation of symptoms obtained from carefully taking the patient's history and noting signs found during physical examination are essential in the diagnosis of neurologic diseases, even if laboratory testing, such as electrophysiology and neuroimaging, are being more widely used. This book aims to provide a bridge from the basic sciences such as anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and molecular biology to the neurologic symptoms. Neurologic examinations provide the foundation for the diagnosis, and only after a thorough and expertly executed examination can one begin to incorporate laboratory testing and treatment.

    The Neurologic Examination: Scientific Basis for Clinical Diagnosis, based on the widely successful Japanese book Diagnosis of Neurological Diseases (Igakushoin, Japan, second edition 2013) by Dr. Shibasaki, hopes to revitalize the use of neurologic examinations before jumping straight into laboratory testing. Doing so can help cut down on time, patient and physician anxiety, and unnecessary testing expenses. This book is a must-read for all practicing neurologists, residents, and medical students.

    Key Features Include
    · The chapters are arranged in order of the actual steps in a neurologic examination;
    · Highly illustrated with figures and tables indicative of the neurologic signs and symptoms that may appear during the given step; and
    · 99 discussion boxes are inserted throughout to provide a more in-depth look at particular topics without interrupting the reading flow of the text.

    The first real cases video atlas of neuromuscular disorders that is supplemented with multiple-choice questions, and updates on the illustrated topics. It is easy to search and read. It is perfect for preparation to the neurology and neuromuscular boards and an excellent way to update the experts. By replacing the descriptive text with vivid illustrative videos, the reader will have more time to face the intellectual challenges of these cases instead of trying to build a mental picture of these cases first. Short and well-edited video clips from real clinic stories supplemented with challenging multiple choice questions, provides an excellent way to bridge the gap between overflow of information and short attention span. The chapters are arranged according the symptoms instead of diseases, yet, diseases are listed in the index if one wants to see all videos relevant to a specific disease. Close to 300 video cases* taken directly from a real neuromuscular clinic, illustrating a myriad of disorders and shedding light on their diagnosis, and treatment and giving updates about many of them provides an invaluable approach that should benefit any one who is interested in neuromuscular disorders which comprises more than 50% of presenting disease to general neurologists and even to general practitioners. Some rare diseases are also described, giving an opportunity for the new trainees to see them so that they can diagnosed them if they see them again which may not happen very often. *Due to size limitations, the videos are not included with any eBook version.

    Temporal bone anatomy is arguably the most complex anatomy in the human body. The proximity of vital neural and vascular structures, the intricate three-dimensional relationships involved, and the manner in which these structures are encased in a labyrinth of bony canals pose a major challenge to the preparation for and performance of surgery. It follows that specialized anatomy teaching courses are indispensable, and these are most effective when executed with the help of dissections on cadaver preparations.

    Mario Sanna's Temporal Bone is a guide to the dissection courses that the author himself would have sought to have while he was receiving training—as such, creating it has been a "dream come true" for the author. The manual is designed to complement and reinforce the experiences of course participants, comprehensively covering the normal and surgical anatomy of the temporal bone and all aspects of basic and advanced otologic and neurootologic surgery.

    Key Features:

    • The surgical anatomy is shown with the help of specially prepared cadaveric dissections
    • The approaches/techniques in these dissections are described step-by-step
    • For every approach/technique, the surgical anatomy, indications, surgical steps, and hints and pitfalls are described

    The Temporal Bone effectively transmits Mario Sanna's passionate dedication in otologic teaching and training to excellence. Residents and fellows should definitely find it indispensable.

    Molecular Neuroendocrinology: From Genome to Physiology, provides researchers and students with a critical examination of the steps being taken to decipher genome complexity in the context of the expression, regulation and physiological functions of genes in neuroendocrine systems. The 19 chapters are divided into four sectors: A) describes and explores the genome, its evolution, expression and the mechanisms that contribute to protein, and hence biological, diversity. B) discusses the mechanisms that enhance peptide and protein diversity beyond what is encoded in the genome through post-translational modification. C) considers the molecular tools that today’s neuroendocrinologists can use to study the regulation and function of neuroendocrine genes within the context of the intact organism. D) presents a range of case studies that exemplify the state-of-the-art application of genomic technologies in physiological and behavioural experiments that seek to better understand complex biological processes. • Written by a team of internationally renowned researchers • Both print and enhanced e-book versions are available • Illustrated in full colour throughout This is the third volume in a new Series ‘Masterclass in Neuroendocrinology’ , a co- publication between Wiley and the INF (International Neuroendocrine Federation) that aims to illustrate highest standards and encourage the use of the latest technologies in basic and clinical research and hopes to provide inspiration for further exploration into the exciting field of neuroendocrinology.

    Neurorehabilitation is an expanding field with an increasing clinical impact because of an ageing population. During the last 20 years neurorehabilitation has developed from a discipline with little scientific background, separated from other medical centers, to a medical entity largely based on the principles of 'evidenced based medicine' with strong ties to basic research and clinical neurology. Today neurorehabilitation is still a 'work in progress' and treatment standards are not yet established for all aspects of neurorehabilitation. There are very few books that address contemporary neurorehabilitation from this perspective.

    This volume moves the reader from theory to practice. It provides the reader with an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of neurorehabilitation, as well as a clear idea about how (and why) to approach treatment decisions in individual patients. These clinical recommendations are based on a mix of established evidence and clinical experience that the authors bring to bear on their topics.

    Summary

    In the last decade neuroscience has matured at a remarkable pace, shedding a far more exacting light on mechanisms of neurophysiology, pathophysiology of injury, neuroendocrinology, neuro-immunology, neuroplasticity, neuropharmacology and neurodegenerative processes. Individuals with acquired brain injury are treated earlier and now achieve far better recovery than in the past.

    The fourth edition of this text constitutes a continuation of 20 years of coverage of traumatic brain injury, and broadens the discussion of acquired brain injury. Within TBI, the paradigm shift from an injury occurring at a point in time to a disease entity of a chronic nature is changing the discussion of diagnosis, management, treatment and outcome assessment. Disease specification that differentiates TBIs by the mechanism of injury, the exact nature of the injury, the extent of injury, presence of co-morbidities and their exact nature, gender, age, race, and genome are emerging as crucial. There was a time when cancer was an undifferentiated disease. Disease differentiation has consequently impacted diagnosis, treatment and outcome.

    This text is intended to serve as a ready reference tool, contributing to the professional growth of each reader, and stimulating innovation and research. It also promotes the continued refinement in the management of diseases of acquired brain injury.

    As compared to adult-onset spinal cord injury (SCI), individuals with childhood-onset SCI are unique in several ways. First, as a result of their younger age at injury and longer lifespan, individuals with pediatric-onset SCI are particularly susceptible to long-term complications related to a sedentary lifestyle, such as cardiovascular disease, and overuse syndromes, such as upper extremity pain. Second, they experience complications, such as scoliosis and hip dysplasia, which may affect them both during childhood and as adults. Persons with pediatric-onset SCI also have unique developmental needs. They experience the typical ongoing challenges of each developmental stage (e.g., childhood, adolescence) as well as changes owing to their SCI. Finally, individuals with pediatric-onset SCI face health system discontinuities, such as the transition from pediatric medical care to adult care and the transition from parent-controlled health care to self-management. This book is intended for clinicians of all disciplines who may only occasionally care for youth with SCI to those who specialize in SCI as well as clinical and basic researchers in the SCI field.

    Understanding the biology of brain function is a great challenge and a major goal of modern science. The brain is one of the last great frontiers in science, and the unraveling of its mysteries is comparable in complexity to efforts in space exploration. A fundamental goal of neuroscience is to understand how neurons generate behavior and the pathophysiology of different mental and neurological diseases. The aim of this book is to describe recent discoveries about the basic operations of the brain and to provide an introduction to the adaptations for specific types of information processing.

    In the animal nervous system, a very high metabolic turnover, fragile but steep ionic gradients, and morphological and structural constraints - dictated by the necessity for prompt neuronal transmission of electrical impulses and necessary plasticity - result in a highly fragile organ system. Here, we address a small sampling of major constituents of neural function at the cellular and molecular level that play important roles in development and aging, two endogenous processes that embody features of allostasis or the dynamic shifts in set points for specific homeostatic mechanisms associated with development and aging. These chapters stress the dynamic features of neuronal responses to internal (developmental) cues or the more harmful external events (injury and disease) in a modern perspective.
