Neonatal Neurology, Volume 162 in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology, series updates the reader on the latest advances in the study of neurological diseases diagnosed in the fetal and neonatal periods. With recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging, digital electroencephalography recording, and genetic testing and diagnosis, there is expanding awareness relating to early onset neurological conditions and how their early diagnosis can improve prediction of outcome and subsequent neurodevelopmental outcome. This new volume covers diagnosis and management of congenital conditions, including brain malformations, neuromuscular conditions and genetic epilepsies, as well as acquired injury related to peri-partum events, prematurity, critical illness and systemic diseases. Provides an in-depth understanding of the basic scientific research, translational research and clinical consensus across neonatal and fetal medicine Explores how early neurological diagnosis can improve prediction of outcome and how management can improve subsequent neurodevelopmental outcome Features chapters co-authored by two experts, combining expertise in both neonatal and fetal neurology

Child Neurology: Its Origins, Founders, Evolution and Growth, Second Edition updates the first biographical study of important contributors to the field of child neurology, consisting of over 250 biographical sketches written by over 100 physicians specializing in neurology, child neurology, pediatrics and obstetrics. Organized chronologically into six chapters, beginning before 1800 and continuing to the present, Child Neurology traces the emergence of child neurology as a separate specialty from its roots in pediatrics and neurology. With a definitive historical introduction by the editor, Dr. Stephen Ashwal. This new edition will feature a new section on The Dynamic Growth and Expansion of Child Neurology: The Late Twentieth Century (1960 to 2000+) and features about 138 new biographical sketches of leaders in the field during this recent time frame. Child Neurology: Its Origins, Founders, Evolution and Growth, Second Edition will be published on behalf of the Child Neurology Society, a professional society that strives to foster recognition and support for children with neurological disorders and to promote and exchange national and international scientific research, education, and training in the field of neurology. Identifies top contributors to child neurology research from the 1800s to today Includes 238 biographical sketches of contributors and their scientific research Contains 138 new biographies on contributors from the late 20th and early 21st centuries Authored by physicians and published by the Child Neurology Society

Neurology of Vision and Visual Disorders, Volume 178 in the Handbooks of Neurology series provides comprehensive summaries of recent research on the brain and nervous system. This volume reviews alterations in vision that stem from the retina to the cortex. Coverage includes content on vision and driving derived from the large amount of time devoted in clinics to determining who is safe to drive, along with research on the interplay between visual loss, attention and strategic compensations that may determine driving suitability. The title concludes with vision therapies and the evidence behind these approaches. Each chapter is co-written by a basic scientist collaborating with a clinician to provide a solid underpinning of the mechanisms behind the clinical syndromes. Reviews the neurological underpinnings of visual perception disorders Encompasses the cortex to the retina Covers functional organization, electrophysiology and subcortical visual pathways Discusses assessment, diagnosis and management of visual perception disorders Includes international experts from Australia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Singapore, and the UK and US

The Handbook of Clinical Neurology series volumes provide comprehensive summaries of recent research on the brain and nervous system as they relate to clinical neurology. Cardiac disorders and diseases may often co-occur with, or cause, subsequent neurological disorders. Heart and Neurologic Disease identifies the top cardiac diseases and disorders most likely to have neurological disorders, how they will present, and how they are best treated. It identifies the mechanisms of action explaining why the conditions co-occur, and what clinicians should look for symptom wise, and how risk may be assessed. Coverage includes genetic cardiac disorders, cardiac trauma, surgery, infection, disease, and arrhythmia. Identifies the top cardiac diseases and disorders most likely to have neurological complications Specifies how the neurological complication will present and advance and how it should be treated Discusses the mechanism of action—why the two conditions co-occur Includes genetic conditions, trauma, surgery, infection, disease, arrythmias, and more Covers prevention and risk assessment
