  • In writing An Atlas of Parkinson’s Disease and Related Disorders, I have been conscious of the need to find an appropriate match between the text and the illustrative material. The text is designed to provide a basic overview of the conditions discussed, inevitably concentrating on those areas which lend themselves best to photographic illustration. Some movement disorders, by their very nature, do not lend themselves to still photography whereas others, characterized by sustained postures, are ideally suited to the technique.

  • Congenital heart disease in newborns is associated with global impairment in development. We characterized brain metabolism and microstructure, as measures of brain maturation, in newborns with congenital heart disease before they underwent heart surgery. Methods We studied 41 term newborns with congenital heart disease — 29 who had transposition of the great arteries and 12 who had single-ventricle physiology — with the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) before cardiac surgery....

  • In 1871, over 30 years before Alois Alzheimer published his seminal cases, James Crichton - Browne may have been among the fi rst physicians to remark upon the relationship between “ brain wasting ” and “ premature dotage ” in a letter to Charles Darwin (Snyder & Pearn, 2007 ). Age - related mental deterioration as an entity had been recognized virtually for recorded history (Boller et al., 2007 ; Mandell & Albert, 1990 ).

  • Think of the most complicated aspect of our universe, and then multiply that by infinity! Even the most enthusiastic of mathematicians and physicists acknowledge that the brain is by far the most challenging entity to understand. By design, the human brain is made up of billions of cells called neurons, which use chemical neurotransmitters to communicate with each other through connections called synapses. Each brain cell has about 2,000 synapses.

  • Stroke is the commonest neurological disease in adults. It frequently results in serious morbidity and high mortality. It also has a significant impact on those who survive it and on their families, especially on their emotional wellbeing, personal social relationships and their ability to engage in gainful employment and to pursue leisure activities

  • Based on your answers, good teachers are able to make a reliable estimate of the number of words you must transfer into your brain. This number varies between 5,000 and 15,000. Worst-case scenarios are languages that are completely different from any of the languages you know: for Europeans, typical examples are Hindi, Arabic, or Chinese. In these languages, only a handful of words resemble European words and leave you with 15,000 words on the table.

  • There is another piece of good news. As you will see in the coming chapters, importing 5,000 to 15,000 new words into your brain in 500 to 1,500 hours turns out to be THE major battlefield in language learning, representing 60 to 80 percent of your total effort. In comparison, other aspects of language learning – grammar, pronunciation, etc. – are minor construction sites. If you are motivated and still willing to follow me, my first prescription would be that you start learning words on a daily basis, at least five days a week, and that you start now.

  • In neurointensive patients with acute lung injury, achieving the goal of lung protection without threatening cerebral perfusion is very difficult. In patients with more refractory raised intracranial pressure, the optimal balance between brain and lung may not be well established. Multiple strategies are used to recruit atelectatic alveoli and improve oxygenation. Among them incremental levels of PEEP and high intermittent tidal volumes should require extend brain physiological monitoring.

  • Although a general understanding persists that the human brain functions similarly in women and in men, an increasing body of knowledge indicates that neuronal connectivity, recruitment, and disease patterns exhibit gender differences. Imaging techniques such as positron emission computerized tomography (PET) and single photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) have highlighted some gender-based differences in human brain function.

  • In Chapter 5, Carrascosa Romero and de Cabo de la Vega consider the relevance of genetics and brain imaging findings in the diagnosis of diseases which result from abnormal development or neoplasia of cells derived from the neural crest (neurocristopathies). Koga and Saito (Chapter 6) provide a beautifully illustrated discussion of the use of neuroimaging tools to guide gamma knife radiosurgery.

  • Molecular cloning has identified eight metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) subtypes, each with distinct patterns of expression. However, the characteristic roles of these different mGluRs in physiological processes are not well understood. Identification of subtype-specific compounds may potentially act as therapeutic agents for the treatment of a wide range of conditions (including progressive brain disease, epilepsy and cerebral ischemia) all of which are associated with abnormal mGLuR activation.

  • This volume of Advances in Neurobiology deals with the neurochemistry of disease. Included are chapters on both human diseases and animal “model” diseases. Sources of human tissue. The three main sources of human neural tissues for chemical studies have been: Brain obtained at autopsy Brain obtained at biopsy or incidental to neurosurgery Nonneural tissues containing molecules identical to those in clinically affected brain or nerve In theory, peripheral nerve is more available than brain, but chemical analyses of peripheral nerves are relatively limited....

  • This book began as a collection of articles on neuropsychiatric disease, but with a clear focus on Schizophrenia, which is a poorly understood but very disabling group of brain disorders. We now recognize schizophrenia as a disorder of the brain, but despite advances in treatment options we are still a long way from having effective treatments, particularly for cognitive symptoms, and lack effective interventions and ways to prevent this disease.

  • Rapid technical advances in medical imaging, including its growing application to drug/gene therapy and invasive/interventional procedures, have attracted significant interest in close integration of research in life sciences, medicine, physical sciences and engineering. This is motivated by the clinical and basic science research requirement of obtaining more detailed physiological and pathological information about the body for establishing localized genesis and progression of diseases.

  • Cerebrovascular diseases have an enormous and increasing impact on societies: they rank among the leading causes of death, are often associated with chronic handicap, and cause high costs for primary treatment, rehabilitation and chronic care. The advent of treatment options such as reperfusion therapies and, to a lesser degree, neuroprotective strategies on the one hand, and growing means to enhance rehabilitation and functional plasticity on the other hand, urges physicians to diagnose stroke subtypes as early and precisely as possible.

  • While history and examination will always remain the foundation of neurolog- ical diagnosis, MRI and CT have now become the most important diagnostic tests used by neurologists and neurosurgeons. These tests are critical not only for confirming clinical diagnosis, but in many cases will give additional infor- mation absolutely essential to patient care. Modern clinical diagnosis and treat- ment of central nervous system disorders relies heavily upon neuroimaging. In some cases, the optimal management of clinical problems affecting patients with brain tumors, strokes, etc.
