Imaging Dementia: Essentials for Clinical Practice () (PDF) by Massimo Filippi

0
This book helps physicians select from among the currently available imaging tools, promoting the correct and cost-saving diagnosis and management of common dementias. Magnetic resonance (MR) and nuclear medicine techniques are routinely used to facilitate diagnosis, select therapies, provide information regarding the prognosis, and monitor therapy response in patients with cognitive impairment and dementia. Furthermore, the advent of quantitative MR techniques, such as diffusion-weighted imaging, perfusion imaging, etc. have opened up new opportunities to diagnose neurological diseases based on objective findings, and offer unique new insights into the main neurodegenerative diseases of the human brain. However, the practical value of various neuroimaging techniques in clinical practice has yet to be clearly defined, and their potential for future development is not yet fully appreciated.To help remedy the situation, this book offers practical and useful algorithms and rules that can be directly applied in the clinical setting. It provides concise content, together with a wealth of clinical case material.

Clinical Studies and Therapies in Parkinson’s Disease: Translations from Preclinical Models 1st Edition () (PDF) by Juan Segura-Aguilar

0
More than 50 years have passed since the use of L-dopa in the palliative treatment of Parkinson’s disease, but it remains the most common treatment despite inducing severe side effects such as dyskinesia after 4–6 years of use. Numerous preclinical investigations based on endogenous neurotoxin models have promised various therapies for Parkinson’s disease, but these efforts have failed when attempting to transfer these successful results to preclinical studies. Although several publications have warned of these failures, the scientific community remains mostly unaware, and there is a need to focus their efforts on potential therapeutics that can slow or halt development of the disease.Clinical Studies and Therapies in Parkinson’s Disease: Translations from Preclinical Models analyzes preclinical models based on exogenous neurotoxins and why they have failed. Neuroscientists, neurologists, and neuropharmacologists will benefit greatly from the book’s discussion of these newer models, their benefits, and the need for their implementation. This book also provides the basic concepts of dopamine metabolism for students taking courses in neurochemistry, neuroscience, neuropharmacology, biochemistry, and medicine.

Medical students, junior doctors in training, non-neurological specialists and general practitioners will all be faced with patients exhibiting neurological symptoms at some point in their career. This book describes a number of simple approaches to examining patients with common neurological problems seen in both the clinical setting, and in college examinations such as the MRCP here in the UK and the FRACP in Australia. The neurological examination is different from the examination of most other body systems in one important respect - there is no single approach which is appropriate for all cases. This poses a particular problem to the inexperienced clinician - how to tailor their examination to the problem in hand. In this book, the reader will find a sensible and practical approach to what most non-neurologists to find daunting, and hints on the most useful things to do when assessing a patient with neurological signs.

Oxford Textbook of Neuropsychiatry (Oxford Textbooks in Psychiatry) 1st Edition (2020) (PDF) by Niruj Agrawal

0
A survey of over 900 trainees at the Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCPsych) in the United Kingdom showed that over three-quarters of psychiatry trainees desired some knowledge and training in the field of neuropsychiatry. Recent years have given rise to a substantial global focus on integrating neurosciences and neuropsychiatry in psychiatric training. Neuropsychiatry forms an important part of the psychiatric curriculum and is examined in theory and in clinical exams. Similarly, neuropsychiatry is also of interest to neurology trainees, and it is increasingly recognised that all neurology trainees should have some knowledge and experience in neuropsychiatry. Despite this growing interest, there is a dearth of neuropsychiatry textbooks specifically geared towards trainees and other clinicians who are not specialist in the field.

Oxford Textbook of Neurorehabilitation (Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology) 2nd Edition (2020) (PDF) by Volker Dietz

Neurorehabilitation is an expanding field with an increasing clinical impact due to 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 the field. There are very few books that address contemporary neurorehabilitation from this perspective.
