In the first two years of life, several important and interlinked neurological functions develop; this is a decisive developmental period. Neurological disorders arising in early childhood therefore require special attention and should be defined precisely. To be understood and managed correctly, these disorders (epilepsy, cerebral lesions, tumours, nerve damage, etc.) must be considered as a whole. By compartmentalizing the disorders and only focusing on a certain number of them, physicians run the risk of neglecting others which could have been useful in reaching a more accurate diagnosis. Written by neuropaediatricians with the aim of sharing their knowledge, this book is the only one of its kind to date to explore, in such detail, all the factors which have the potential to perturb neurological development.

Surgical neuropathology is a challenging arena for many pathologists, due in large part to a relative lack of experience of most pathologists in this area compared to other areas of surgical pathology. Brain Tumors is intended to address this need with cases drawn from the surgical neuropathology practices of the authors. This volume provides examples of over 100 brain tumors, running the gamut from the very common to the rare. Each example is presented in a case based format and the wide variety of cases presented covers the entire scope of brain tumors and offers the opportunity to review both the basics for the beginner or relatively inexperienced pathologist and also offers experienced pathologists the chance to see some of the rare entities. Each case is formatted as if it were a consult case and includes a brief clinical history, description of the pathologic findings with numerous illustrations, the line diagnosis, discussion of the entity, and the diagnostic thought process as well pertinent references for further reading. When relevant, current practical applications of immunohistochemistry and molecular pathology are discussed. The Consultant Pathology Series The Consultant Pathology series is designed to disseminate the knowledge of expert surgical pathology consultants in the analysis and diagnosis of difficult cases to the full community of pathology practitioners. The volumes are based on actual consultations and presented in a format that illustrates the expert's process of evaluating the case, including indications for consultation, the consultants findings and comment, and discussion of the entity that amplifies the case description. Each volume in the Consultant Pathology series is authored by international experts with extensive case experience in the areas covered

Please note that this eBook does not include the DVD accompaniment. If you would like to have access to the DVD content, please purchase the print copy of this title. This is a clinical neurology book for students and non neurologists, and for those who teach them. The book covers neuroanatomy, history taking and examination and then proceeds to discuss the clinical features of common problems as well as selected, less common neurological disorders, in a way that will demystify a part of medicine that many find complex and difficult to understand. The book is accompanied by a DVD explaining concepts, demonstrating techniques of performing the neurological examination and demonstration of abnormal neurological signs. The first chapter is devoted to neuroanatomy from a clinical viewpoint. The concept of localising problems by likening the nervous system to a map grid with vertical meridians of longitude (the ascending sensory pathways and the descending motor pathway)and horizontal parallels of latitude (cortical signs, brainstem cranial nerves, nerve roots and peripheral nerves) of the nervous system is developed. Subsequent chapters take the reader through the neurological examination and the common neurological presentations from a symptom oriented approach. Chapter 4 contains a very simple method of understanding the brainstem, the "rule of 4". Chapter 6 discusses the approach after the history and examination are completed. The final chapter is an overview of how to approach information gathering and keeping up-to-date using the complex information streams available. widely illustrated with case studies and illustrations key points clinical questions clinical orientation with comprehensive references

Divided into fourteen chapters, this text and full-color atlas is a complete overview of the pathologic and clinical aspects of neurologic diseases. Clinical Neuropathology is written for practicing neurologists and pathologists, as well as residents and fellows preparing for the neurology and pathology boards. It provides information on the structural alterations of nervous system diseases along with their clinical manifestations. The first two chapters cover the process and goals of the neuropathologic exam and histological reactions particular to the nervous system. Subsequent chapters review major disease categories, with each section containing an overview of pathologic and clinical characteristics in general, a description of the gross and histologic features along with their clinical features, and data on pathogenetic mechanisms. Filled with tables to clarify major points, case histories to provide clinical correlates, and Board-type chapter review questions with answers and explanations, this text will be a valuable addition to all individual and reference libraries. Key Benefits: Almost 600 full color illustrations. Case histories, keyed to images, provide clinical correlation with pathology. Over 90 tables summarizing key points: useful for quick reference and exam preparation. End-of-chapter Board-type questions, with answers and explanations, for self-assessment and exam preparation.

Cognitive Plasticity in Neurologic Disorders describes and specifies the cognitive impact of neuroplastic processes in key neurologic disorders and syndromes. It is set apart from previous works in this area by its emphasis on the changing quality of neurocognition, demonstrating that this dynamic nature emerges from the neuroplastic processes at work in both mild and severe states of brain disease or injury. This resource describes the ways neurological illness or trauma (or attempts to treat patients with such conditions) can trigger neuroplastic mechanisms in the brain, inducing cognitive reorganization and remapping of brain networks. Each chapter shows how the cognitive and behavioral presentation of the disorder mirrors the changing neurobiologic context, and displays the numerous techniques being employed (e.g. behavior and rehabilitation therapies, electrical stimulation, and computer/machine neuromodulation of brain signals) underlying the neurobiology in ways that facilitate adaptive plasticity and cognitive recovery. An important feature of the book involves characterizing the degree to which the mechanistic principles governing neuroplastic responses and cognitive reorganization in the brain have been elucidated, making clear that it is these principles which will allow us to further develop rational rehabilitative therapies, match patients to appropriate treatments, and even begin to predict clinical treatment outcomes.
