    Foundations for Clinical Neurology presents basic principles of neurology in a user-friendly way for practicing neurologists as well residents, fellows, and students. Written in a clear and concise format, this book will perfectly complement the "traditional" neurology textbook. This volume on neurology is divided in to three primary sections. The first section "Practicing Neurology" covers bedside investigation, diagnosis, imaging techniques, and therapeutics; Section 2, "Topics in Neurologic Disease" reviews subjects in neurologic disease that are often overlooked but are very important; and the third section, "Perspectives" provides insight in to how we talk, think, and develop concepts in neurology. With understanding of the evolution of neurologic concepts, the terminology and classifications used by neurologists, and the methodologies used to prove cause of disorder and disease, the practicing neurologist can provide the most effective care. Topics discussed in Foundations for Clinical Neurology include... -Verbal and nonverbal communication, especially during the history-taking portion of a neurologic examination; -How to be effective and avoid common pitfalls in the neurologic exam; -Difficulties in applying diagnostic criteria and formulating diagnoses; and -Advantages of using CT or MRI scanning in various clinical situations.

     This volume provides integral knowledge of all aspects of stroke care and rehabilitation after stroke, and is therefore highly relevant for nurses who work in rehabilitation centers. It  outlines the several phases after stroke, for example the type of care patients may receive in the chronically phase at home. Nurses will obtain knowledge about treatment, importance of observation and caring with a special focus on communication problems, swallowing problems, activities of daily living, urinary and defecation problems, shoulder and hand issues.

    Thanks to photographs, nurses will learn to transfer patients in the adequate positions. Several chapters provide nurses with examples of effective and efficient collaboration with multidisciplinary professionals, informal caregivers and patients themselves. There is also an emphasis on behavior and cognitive functioning. And lastly, in the final chapters authors highlight the organization of rehabilitation and integrated care issues.

    Nurses play a very important role in rehabilitation, education, counseling, prevention, and caring for patients with cerebrovascular accident (CVA). In caring for stroke patients, nurses need specific competences and abilities that go beyond the general neurologic knowledge and experience. Nurses need to collaborate in an efficient and effective manner with multidisciplinary team members in their organization and  across organizations. This book discusses medical aspects and specific symptoms of a stroke, as well as the limitations that patients experience, and which interventions are indicated for recovery.

    Description:

    This book presents a selection of neurological clinical cases and tests the reader in order to allow them to gain clinical self-confidence in approaching the case, requesting tests (negotiating test with other specialties e.g. radiology) and also in referring to other specialties. The book examines a range of different clinical scenarios and neurological conditions from multiple sclerosis and degenerative disorders to epilepsy and headache.  The book can serve as a teaching aid in a classroom setting, where teacher introduces the case (“telling the story”, neurological examination) and the students then propose differential diagnoses and further tests. Teacher, when suitable, shows representative test result to students and expects students to interpret scan/test, eventually concluding the case, proposing further referrals and discussing prognosis Each chapter also contains visual aids in the form of  Neuroexam, helping the reader gain a quick understanding of the case. Aimed at trainee neurologists and any non-neurologists who might encounter neurological cases in the clinic, this book is useful for bedside teaching especially when there are not enough available patients on ward.

    How does the brain regulate sexual behavior, or control our body weight? How do we cope with stress? Addressing these questions and many more besides, this thoroughly revised new edition reflects the significant advances that have been made in the study of neuroendocrinology over the last twenty years. The text examines the importance of the hypothalamus in regulating hormone secretion from the endocrine glands, describing novel sites of hormone release including bone, heart, skeletal muscle and liver. The role of steroid hormone, neurotransmitter and peptide receptors, and the molecular responses of target tissues, is integrated into the discussion of the neuroendocrine brain, especially through changes in gene expression. Particular attention is attached to neuropeptides, including their profound influence on behavior. Complete with new full-color figures throughout, along with review and essay questions for each chapter, this is an ideal resource for undergraduate and graduate students of neuroscience, psychology, biology and physiology.

    Description:

    An introductory text that transitions into a moderately advanced, case-based analysis of neurologic disorders and diseases, this book emphasizes how to simplify the process of making a neurologic diagnosis.  Medical students and residents are often intimidated by a deluge of data, perception of anatomic complexity, extensive differential diagnoses, and often have no organized structure to follow.  Diagnostic methods of general medicine are not applicable.  Indeed, neurology is a unique specialty since it requires the intermediary step of an anatomic diagnosis prior to proffering a differential diagnosis.  Yet the required knowledge of neuroanatomy need not be profound for the student or resident who will not specialize in neurology or neurosurgery.   The Neurologic Diagnosis: A Practical Bedside Approach, 2nd Edition is primarily directed to neurology and neurosurgery residents but it will be useful for medical and family practice residents who will discover that a great percentage of their patients have neurologic symptoms.  A one-month neurology rotation out of four years of medical school is not sufficient to make a cogent neurologic diagnosis. The aim of this concise, practical book -- which includes an in-depth video of how to perform a neurologic examination -- is to facilitate the process of establishing a neuroanatomic diagnosis followed by a rigorous analysis of symptoms and signs to reach a well-thought out differential diagnosis.  Focused and succinct, this book is an invaluable resource for making a lucid neurologic diagnosis.

    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.

     "Parkinson's Disease in the Older Patient, Second Edition" has been fully revised, updated and expanded to include new treatments and entirely new chapters. This authoritative text is written by recognised national specialists in the field and provides accessible, easy-to-read information. The practical and versatile approach comprehensively covers all aspects of treatment, and although it focuses on the older patient, it is also highly relevant for younger patient groups with an emphasis on multidisciplinary assessment and management. Detailed information on the aetiology and pathogenesis of the condition, drug and surgical treatments, sleep disturbances, quality of life and careers is now included, along with the more prevalent older patient issues such as neuropsychiatric disturbances, speech and swallowing problems, balance and falls, and autonomic disturbances. The updates also include new advice on the management and services in primary care, linked to the recent NICE guidelines.With official endorsement from The Parkinson's Disease Academy of the British Geriatrics Society, this new edition is highly recommended for general practitioners, geriatricians, neurologists and psychiatrists. Physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, dieticians, and psychologists will also find it invaluable. It is suitable for general and specialist nurses, and will be of great use to researchers with an interest in Parkinson's disease.

     The importance of physical therapy for neurological disease cannot be underestimated. Stroke, for example, is the second leading cause of death worldwide, and its global effect is considerable, based on disability-adjusted life years. With an ageing population, the risk of stroke increases exponentially with age, and accordingly, the number of patients increases as well. It follows that specially tailored neurorehabilitation regimens are crucial in helping patients return to the workplace and maintain their independence. This concise and practical work, created by authors with decades of experience in the practice and teaching of physical therapy, serves that purpose well, with its emphasis on the targeted use of training equipment to match the patients' exact needs. Key Features: * Concise, practical, and goal-oriented. * Provides expert guidance in creating individualized training regimens with the goal of training and enhancing endurance, strength, and balance. * An emphasis on types of equipment and instructions for their use, tailored specifically the individual needs of patients. * All training exercises are well illustrated for optimal understanding. * Author team with more than 30 years' experience in practice and teaching of physical therapy. Lamprecht's 'Training in Neurorehabilitation' is certain to be an essential reference for all students and practitioners in physical therapy involved in the treatment of patients with neurological disorders. Sabine and Hans Lamprecht run a successful physical therapy practice in Kirchheim, Germany, where, in addition to treating patients, they also provide advanced training courses for physical therapists nationwide.
