    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    As the global population ages the impact of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease are significant forces in shaping human health and quality of life in the 21st century. Insights into understanding these diseases, and knowing how to treat them are major frontiers of scientific research.

    Neurodegenerative Diseases: Unifying Principles is the result of a conceptual revolution over the last decade in our understanding of neurodegenerative diseases as sharing unifying features. There is an increasing appreciation of the common biological and pathological features across seemingly varied neurodegenerative diseases that entail protein misfolding dysfunction and its consequences over time. Providing an overview of this conceptual change is the main theme for the book. Conventional approach emphasize the differences among neurodegenerative disorders, here Drs. Cummings and Pillai compile the increasingly compelling evidence that these disorders share many features and that insights in one may be rapidly translated into advances in another. The goal is to accelerate understanding by showing linkages among biological, pathological, can clinical aspects of this class of diseases.

    This collection of 19, inter-related chapters, articulates and broadens our view of the unifying features that initiate and drive disease progression across a variety of neurodegenerative diseases over time. This book will serve as an outstanding sourcebook of insights from experts that have played key roles in this story.

    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.

    Cette troisième édition de la Rééducation neurologique est une nouvelle version profondément révisée de l'ouvrage. Celle-ci s'imposait non seulement du fait des avancées rapides survenues dans tous les domaines des neurosciences, mais aussi par les progrès majeurs réalisés dans la prise en charge et les techniques de la médecine de rééducation et de réadaptation. Au travers du concept fondateur et holistique de la plasticité de la fonction motrice, étayé sur les données les plus actuelles des neurosciences, la rééducation se révèle déterminante aussi bien pour orienter les processus de réorganisation du système nerveux qu'indispensable pour en assurer l'expression fonctionnelle. Cet ouvrage montre l'enrichissement considérable que notre discipline tire de ces confrontations aux techniques d'exploration les plus récentes. Elles en fondent la démarche, en élargissent le champ, et en confirment la portée. Cependant, l'esprit dans lequel avait été rédigé ce guide - clair, didactique et le plus complet possible - a su être conservé. De même, le découpage des différents chapitres a gardé la présentation en quatre parties (les bilans, les techniques et moyens de rééducation, les grands syndromes et quelques affections particulières), pour apporter des réponses pratiques aux cliniciens et aux professionnels de la reeducation.

    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. Topics covered include new developments in pediatric SCI research, current standards for optimal care, areas lacking scientific evidence, and recommendations for clinical practice and future research.

    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.
