Electrical Brain Stimulation for the Treatment of Neurological Disorders
Patrick McDaniel, Bahman Zohuri
editore: Apple Academic Press Inc.
In this book, Electrical Brain Stimulation for the Treatment of Neurological Disorders, the authors present their embodiment for a closed loop, feedback controlled, non-invasive application of electrical stimulation of the brain to enhance individual/group performance or to treat neurological disorders. Using a combination of modeling and experimental work, the authors have developed a unique approach to the field in combination with new technology from the perspectives of electro-magnetic and electrical engineering, computation of image processing, machine learning and neural networking, and in conjunction with the medicine of neurology and understanding of neuron behavior. They claim that non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) will provide new treatment methods with much greater simplicity, lower cost, improved safety, and in some cases, possibly greater effectiveness than well-established pharmacological methods or more recent invasive electrical deep brain stimulation (DBS) techniques. The authors explain their techniques and the results of their experimental studies and assert that the application of tailored and individualized control of their approach can be combined with other therapy methods to treat neurological disorders while minimizing or even eliminating the use of pharmaceuticals.

Treatment of Neurodevelopmental Disorders
Targeting Neurobiological Mechanisms
Randi Jenssen Hagerman, Robert L. Hendren
editore: Oxford University Press
This cutting-edge book brings advances in genetics, neurobiology, and psychopharmacology to the clinic to enhance treatment for neurodevelopmental disorders. Significant progress has been made in identifying the neurobiological mechanisms of several disorders and targeted treatments are modifying the outcome of these disorders. However, the ability to utilize this knowledge has not been summarized in one place for the practicing clinician. This book will fill that gap by providing the theoretical underpinnings and the latest advances in targeted treatments. Several neurodevelopmental disorders are reviewed in detail including clinical features and behavioral phenotypes, standard treatments and new targeted treatments based on the latest advances in neurobiology and the animal model studies that have led to new treatments. The disorders covered include psychiatric disorders: schizophrenia, depression, autism and ADHD; single gene disorders including Tuberous Sclerosis, Fragile X Syndrome and fragile X- associated disorders, Angelman Syndrome, PKU, and Muscular Dystrophies; and complex genetic disorders such as Down syndrome. This book also highlights the commonalities across disorders and new genetic and molecular concepts in an easy to read format. This is a very exciting time for new targeted treatments and this volume is a landmark treatise on this new age of treatment.
La malattia che si nasconde
Volume 21 x 28 pagine 48 copertina in brossura.La Miastenia, malattia caratterizzata da stanchezza muscolare, di solito esordisce con uno o più fra questi sintomi: abbassamento di una palpebra, visione sdoppiata, difficolta` a parlare o a deglutire, debolezza delle braccia.Fino a pochi decenni fa era una malattia grave, talora mortale. Ora si cura bene e consente in alcuni pazienti la guarigione completa, nella maggior parte degli altri una normale durata e una buona qualità della vita.L’Autore ha assistito negli anni a questo fantastico cambiamento della storia della malattia e lo racconta.Racconta anche i problemi tuttora presenti: le difficoltà di diagnosi perché dopo pochi minuti di riposo, i sintomi scompaiono (la Malattia che si nasconde); i difficili equilibri necessari per curare bene la malattia e evitare le complicanze delle terapie; la necessità di informare il paziente e di condividere le decisioni. Questo breve testo è diretto medici, paramedici, pazienti e familiari; quindi, assieme all’indice analitico, vi è un facile glossario che traduce dal linguaggio scientifico al linguaggio comune.
Oxford Textbook of Movement Disorders
editore: Oxford University Press
The field of movement disorders is one of the key subspecialty areas in clinical neurology, and understanding of the relevant conditions can often be difficult. The scope of this area requires a wide knowledge base, and clinicians might, in the course of a single clinic, need to recall the differential of Huntington's-like disorders, the gene implicated in dopa-responsive dystonia, and compare a case of suspected neuroacanthocytosis with a 'classical' case. Part of the accessible Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology series, this volume covers the basic science and clinical concepts underlying the movement disorders, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of individual hypokinetic and hyperkinetic movement disorders. Specifically written to aid understanding and treatment of a wide range of movement disorders, this textbook includes a useful section covering miscellaneous causes of disordered movement, which are routinely encountered by neurologists. It is also supplemented with illustrative video clips that can be accessed through the concurrent online edition. Although firmly rooted in evidence-based management approaches, the authors included their own top tips and experience on the management of difficult cases where no current guidance exists, engaging the reader and providing a better feel for handling real-world clinical problems. The Oxford Textbook of Movement Disorders is an indispensable reference for neurologists and senior trainees in neurology, as well as any physicians advising people with movement disorders.

Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders
Differential Diagnosis and Treatment, with Desk Top Edition
Alberto Albanese, Joseph Jankovic
editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)
Hyperkinetic movement disorders comprise a range of diseases characterized by unwanted and uncontrollable, or poorly controllable, involuntary movements. The phenomenology of these disorders is quite variable encompassing chorea, tremor, dystonia, myoclonus, tics, other dyskinesias, jerks and shakes. Discerning the underlying condition can be very difficult given the range and variability of symptoms. But recognizing the phenomenology and understanding the pathophysiology are essential to ensure appropriate treatment. Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders provides a clinical pathway for effective diagnosis and management of these disorders. The stellar international cast of authors distils the evidence so you can apply it into your practice. The judicious use of • diagnostic criteria • algorithms • rating scales • management guidelines provides a robust framework for clear patient management. Throughout the text, QR codes provide smartphone access to case-study videos of hyperkinetic symptoms. Purchase includes an enhanced Wiley Desktop Edition. This is an interactive digital version featuring: • all text and images in fully searchable form • integrated videos of presentations - View a sample video: www.wiley.com/go/albanese • highlighting and note taking facilities • book marking • linking to additional references Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders provides you with the essential visual and practical tools you need to effectively diagnose and treat your patients.
