Handbook of Ion Channels

Jie Zheng, Matthew C. Trudeau
October 19, 2016

The New Benchmark for Understanding the Latest Developments of Ion Channels Ion channels control the electrical properties of neurons and cardiac cells, mediate the detection and response to sensory stimuli, and regulate the response to physical stimuli. They can often interact with the cellular...

Nutrition and the Developing Brain

Victoria Hall Moran, Nicola M. Lowe
August 18, 2016

Nutrients play a significant role in brain development throughout fetal and postnatal life. This book reviews the evidence from animal and human research, highlighting the influence of specific nutrients on brain function and cognitive development. With a unique, integrative approach to the...

Statistical Techniques for Neuroscientists

Young K. Truong, Mechelle M. Lewis
August 12, 2016

Statistical Techniques for Neuroscientists introduces new and useful methods for data analysis involving simultaneous recording of neuron or large cluster (brain region) neuron activity. The statistical estimation and tests of hypotheses are based on the likelihood principle derived from stationary...

Spasticity Management: A Practical Multidisciplinary Guide, Second Edition

Valerie L. Stevenson, Louise Jarrett
April 19, 2016

Spasticity is a common symptom that arises in a wide range of neurological conditions. Unfortunately, a poor understanding and inadequate management of spasticity often results in it having a greater impact on patients than necessary. Using a multidisciplinary approach, Spasticity Management: A...

Circadian Physiology, Third Edition

Roberto Refinetti, PhD.
April 11, 2016

Circadian rhythms influence most of our life activities, notably getting up and going to sleep every day. This new edition of Circadian Physiology delves into the mechanisms surrounding how these rhythms work, the physiology and biology behind them, and the latest research on this cutting-edge...

Cellular Therapy for Neurological Injury

Charles S. Cox, Jr.
February 24, 2016

Cellular Therapy for Neurological Injury discusses the current status of cellular therapy for neurological disorders. The primary areas of focus include traumatic brain injury, stroke (ischemic and hemorrhagic), and spinal cord injury. The book explores cell therapy approaches to these and other...

Mapping of Nervous System Diseases via MicroRNAs

Christian Barbato, Francesca Ruberti
January 27, 2016

In recent years, understanding of microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis, the molecular mechanisms by which miRNAs regulate gene expression, and the functional roles of miRNAs has expanded. Mapping of Nervous System Diseases via MicroRNAs provides an up-to-date review on the function of miRNA in neurological...

The Laboratory Bird

Douglas K Taylor, Vanessa K Lee, Karen R Strait
December 18, 2015

Laboratory animals, including birds, play an important role in biomedical research. The humane care and management of these animals is an ongoing concern. A new addition to the acclaimed Laboratory Animal Pocket Reference series, The Laboratory Bird is the first publication dedicated to the care...

Lina Machtoub, Yu Kasugai
December 14, 2015

Recently, the implication of biocompatible nanotechnologies has set the stage for an evolutionary leap in diagnostic imaging and therapy. In this scope, the book presents a comprehensive overview of the possible causes, diagnostic criteria, and treatment assessments of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis...

The Blood-Brain Barrier in Health and Disease, Volume Two: Pathophysiology and Pathology

Katerina Dorovini-Zis
October 21, 2015

Located at the interface between blood and the brain, the blood-brain barrier is a dynamic permeability barrier formed by a continuous layer of specialized endothelial cells endowed with important permeability, transport, and regulatory functions that both protect the internal milieu of the brain...

Translational Research in Traumatic Brain Injury

Daniel Laskowitz, Gerald Grant
October 09, 2015

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) remains a significant source of death and permanent disability, contributing to nearly one-third of all injury related deaths in the United States and exacting a profound personal and economic toll. Despite the increased resources that have recently been brought to bear...
