Pain is an unpleasant but very important biological signal for danger. Nociception is necessary for survival and maintaining the integrity of the organism in a potentially hostile environment. Pain is both a sensory experience and a perceptual metaphor for damage and it is activated by noxious stimuli that act on a complex pain sensory apparatus. However, chronic pain having no more a protective role can become a ruining disease itself, termed "neuropathic pain".
The Sixth Edition of Dr. Haines's best-selling neuroanatomy atlas features a stronger clinical emphasis, with significantly expanded clinical information and correlations. More than 110 new images--including MRI, CT, MR angiography, color line drawings, and brain specimens--highlight anatomical-clinical correlations. Internal spinal cord and brainstem morphology are presented in a new format that shows images in both anatomical and clinical orientations, correlating this anatomy exactly with how the brain and its functional systems are viewed in the clinical setting.
Previous editions of Neuroanatomy have endeavored 1) to provide a
structural basis for understanding the function of the central nervous
system; 2) to emphasize points of clinical relevance through use
of appropriate terminology and examples; and 3) to integrate neuroanatomical
and clinical information in a format that will meet the educational
needs of the user. The goal of the sixth edition is to continue
this philosophy and to present structural information and concepts in
an even more clinically useful and relevant format.
Clinical neurophysiology encompasses the application of a wide variety of electrophysiologic methods to the
analysis and recording of normal function, as well as to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases involving
the central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, autonomic nervous system and muscles. The steady
increase in growth of subspecialty knowledge and skill in neurology has led to the need for a compilation
of the whole range of physiologic methods applied in each of the major categories of neurologic disease.
The current format of the United States Medical Licensing Examination
Step 1 (USMLE Step 1) exam emphasizes clinical vignettes—in single-bestanswer
multiple-choice format—as the only test question. The examination
is 350 questions broken into seven blocks of 50 questions each.
Examinees have one hour to complete each block.
Clinical Vignettes for the USMLE Step 1: Fourth Edition parallels this
format. The book contains 350 clinical vignette-style questions covering
the core basic sciences and was assembled based on the published content
outline for the USMLE Step 1.
There has been a major resurgence in stereotactic neurosurgery for the treatment
of Parkinson’s disease and tremor in the past several years. More recently,
interest has also been rekindled in stereotactic neurosurgery for the treatment of
dystonia and other movement disorders.
The function and state of the mind are of significant importance to the physical
health of an individual. The United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE)
is closely attuned to the substantial power of the mind-body relationship and tests this
area extensively on all three Steps of the examination. This review has been prepared
as a learning tool to help students rapidly recall information that they have learned in
the first two years of medical school in behavioral science, psychiatry, epidemiology and
(BQ) Part 1 book "Gray's anatomy - The anatomical basis of clinical practice" presents the following contents: Cells, tissues and systems; embryogenesis; neuroanatomy; head and neck; back, pectoral girdle and upper limb.
Die klinische Neuropsychologie ist heute ein eigenständiges Fachgebiet mit Wurzeln in
der Verhaltensneurologie und der klinischen Psychologie. Warum also ein neues Lehr-
buch für klinische Neuropsychologie?
Die klinische Neuropsychologie ist eine interdisziplinäre Wissenschaft, die durch
verschiedene Zugänge und Sichtweisen auf das gleiche Substrat („Verhaltensänderung
durch Hirnläsion“) befruchtet wird. Ein Zugang liegt im Bereich der „kognitiven Neu-
rowissenschaften“, wo die funktionelle Neuroanatomie ein wesentliches Schlagwort
Modern neuroimaging tools allow unprecedented opportunities for understanding
brain neuroanatomy and function in health and disease. Each available technique
carries with it a particular balance of strengths and limitations, such that converging
evidence based on multiple methods provides the most powerful approach for
advancing our knowledge in the fields of clinical and cognitive neuroscience. In
addition to offering fine-grained in-vivo neuroanatomical specification, neuroimaging
methods also provide the opportunity to non-invasively explore brain function.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Atlas of anatomy" presents the following contents: Upper limb, lower limb, head and neck, neuroanatomy, temporal bone and ear, blood vessels of the brain, functional systems, autonomic nervous system, neurovasculature of the skull and face.
