La scoperta del giardino della mente

Jill B. Taylor

editore: Mondadori

pagine: 192

Jill Bolte Taylor ha trentasette anni, una laurea ad Harvard e un lavoro come neuroscienziata e ricercatrice universitaria quando, una mattina, un capillare esplode improvvisamente nell'emisfero sinistro del suo cervello provocandole un danno cerebrale esteso e devastante. Il suo percorso verso la completa guarigione è durato otto lunghissimi anni, nel corso dei quali ha potuto sperimentare la duplice veste di medico e paziente. E da questo insolito doppio ruolo ha ricavato spunti, consigli e suggerimenti terapeutici utili a chiunque sia rimasto vittima di un ictus o di un trauma cerebrale e a coloro che li curano e li circondano. Ma "La scoperta del giardino della mente" non è soltanto la cronaca dettagliata e diretta di una straordinaria ripresa fisica, è soprattutto la testimonianza di un'esperienza umana unica. Jill, infatti, non è più stata la stessa di prima: l'ictus, mettendo temporaneamente fuori gioco il preponderante e razionale emisfero sinistro, ha dato spazio alla creatività e alle sensazioni, emozioni e intuizioni proprie dell'emisfero destro; e oggi, pur continuando a occuparsi di ricerca, la neuroscienziata scrive, canta e realizza sculture in vetro colorato, felice di vivere e forte di una nuova pace interiore.

Vissuti di malattia e percorsi di cura. La sclerosi multipla raccontata dai protagonisti

Micol Bronzini

editore: Il Mulino

pagine: 191

Una malattia cronica come la sclerosi multipla pone di fronte a sfide inattese e comporta profonde trasformazioni nell'organizzazione di molti aspetti della vita: lavoro, tempo libero, relazioni sociali e familiari. Purtroppo le barriere culturali e sociali sono ancora di ostacolo alla possibilità di superare le limitazioni imposte dalla malattia, senza contare che ancora mancano politiche appropriate e interventi mirati, oltre a un'adeguata capacità di accostarsi ai vissuti degli ammalati e dei loro famigliari. Il volume raccoglie i risultati di un lavoro di ricerca in cui, attraverso il racconto di storie di malattia, si è voluto far luce sulle esperienze di vita con la sclerosi multipla. Le narrazioni riguardano in particolare la dimensione emotiva, il ruolo delle reti famigliari e sociali, le pratiche e i percorsi di cura, le relazioni con gli operatori e con i servizi, i bisogni espressi e inespressi dei malati e delle persone che li circondano. La condivisione delle storie di malattia è infatti uno strumento utile per riorientarsi nel territorio della cronicità e individuare nuove coordinate per attraversarla.

Oxford Textbook of Neurorehabilitation

Nick Ward, Volker Dietz

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 472

Neurorehabilitation is an expanding field with an increasing clinical impact because of an ageing population. During the last 20 years neurorehabilitation has developed from a discipline with little scientific background, separated from other medical centers, to a medical entity largely based on the principles of 'evidenced based medicine' with strong ties to basic research and clinical neurology. Today neurorehabilitation is still a 'work in progress' and treatment standards are not yet established for all aspects of neurorehabilitation. There are very few books that address contemporary neurorehabilitation from this perspective. This volume moves the reader from theory to practice. It provides the reader with an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of neurorehabilitation, as well as a clear idea about how (and why) to approach treatment decisions in individual patients. These clinical recommendations are based on a mix of established evidence and clinical experience that the authors bring to bear on their topics.
