Gold winner in 2014 IBPA Ben Franklin Awards! ... the images are second-to-none in their ability to present the subject material. ... The authors have made this atlas an efficient and informative read. It is this pairing of operative photographs with high-quality illustrations that raises this text to a level superior to that of its competitors. -- American Journal of Neuroradiology A... more...

This book provides a comprehensive overview of Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) in children, discussing its epidemiology, pathophysiology diagnosis and treatments. Readers will discover diverse perspectives of the contributing authors and extensive discussions of issues including GER in special patient populations and current approaches to GER diagnosis and management. The first part of the book is dedicated to introducing the... more...

This concise text takes a symptom-based approach to evaluate and treat sleep disorders. Divided into two sections, this book emphasizes practical information in the patient history and physical, the latest screening techniques and common sleep disorders that either cause sleepiness, insomnia, or restless sleep. Chapters cover the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of major sleep disorders and incorporate new... more...

This new edition reflects the explosion of knowledge in basic science and clinical care for athletes with mild traumatic brain injury or concussion. Interest in management and methodology for making diagnoses and improving the clinical outcomes have changed dramatically. All U.S. states have laws dictating how sports concussion patients are cared for and require return to play decisions be coordinated with best practice... more...

Pathophysiological states, neurological and psychiatric diseases are almost universally considered from the neurocentric point of view, with neurons being the principal cellular element of pathological process. The brain homeostasis, which lies at the fulcrum of healthy brain function, the compromise of which invariably results in dysfunction/disease, however, is entirely controlled by neuroglia. It is becoming clear that neuroglial cells are involved... more...


Now updated: the definitive neuroscience resource—from Eric R. Kandel, MD (winner of the Nobel Prize in 2000); James H. Schwartz, MD, PhD; Thomas M. Jessell, PhD; Steven A. Siegelbaum, PhD; and A. J. Hudspeth, PhD 900 full-color illustrations Deciphering the link between the human brain and behavior has always been one of the most intriguing—and often challenging—aspects of scientific endeavor. The sequencing of the human... more...

Recent discoveries have highlighted the role of omega-3 fatty acid DHA in brain health and degeneration as well as the molecular biology of this fatty acid in neurons. This research has led to a new theory of neurodegeneration. This book provides in-depth coverage of the molecular biology of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA in neurons. Using examples from the world of animal cells, the book illustrates the role of DHA in the brain. It... more...

Here is a marvelous guide for anyone affected by Parkinson's disease--patients, caregivers, family members, and friends. Containing the most up-to-date information on the disease, one of the most common neurological disorders, it discusses the available treatments and provides practical advice on how to manage the disease in the long term. Emphasizing life-style adjustments that will provide a better quality of life and moderate the burden for patients... more...

Since becoming commercially available in 1985, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has emerged as an important tool in several areas of neuroscience. Originally envisioned as a way to measure the responsiveness and conduction speed of neurons and synapses in the brain and spinal cord, TMS has also become an important tool for changing the activity of brain neurons and the functions they subserve and as important adjunct to brain imaging and... more...

Helping clients control their own emotional reactivity. When conditions like anxiety and depression are experienced chronically, they condition neural pathways and shape a person’s perception of and response to life events. As these pathways are reinforced, unhealthy neural networks turn on with increasing ease in the presence of conscious and unconscious triggers. In this groundbreaking book, Kershaw and Wade present Brain Change Therapy (BCT),... more...
