Cerebellar Disorders Book Review:

"This book on cerebellar disorders begins with our current understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the cerebellum, and then dives into the diagnosis and treatment of the many different disorders. As virtually all pathological processes can affect the cerebellum, the book actually covers much of neurology. Dr. Manto has been devoted to the study of the cerebellum in his career. His contributions are numerous in many areas, and his enthusiasm led him to found and edit the journal, The Cerebellum, which has rapidly become quite distinguished with an impact factor approaching 4. When dealing with the different disorders, the book approaches the patient in multiple ways. What is the differential diagnosis by age or by pathologic entity? What is the differential diagnosis for recessive, dominant, or X-linked disorders? What laboratory tests should be done to clarify the situation? What scales can be used to quantify the disorder? And then, what can be done for treatment? There is no reason to take a dimview of treatment when the possibilities are taken as a whole for all the ataxias"--Provided by publisher.

Handbook of the Cerebellum and Cerebellar Disorders Book Review:

Our knowledge of cerebellar functions and cerebellar disorders, called ataxias, is increasing considerably. Studies of the cerebellum are now a central focus in neuroscience. During the last four decades, many laboratories worldwide have dedicated their research activities to understanding the roles of the cerebellum in motor control, cognitive processes and biology of mental processes, behavioral symptoms, and emotion. It is now accepted that the cerebellum acts as a cognitive operator in learning, perception, and attention. Moreover, major improvements in our assessment of in vivo cerebellar architecture using imaging techniques have occurred. A typical example is the accurate description of cerebellar anatomy during fetal development with MRI, a progress which has direct impacts on patient care. These advances have been associated with discoveries of new clinical disorders, in particular in the field of genetic ataxias. More than 20 new genes have been identified these last 10 years. Only for dominant ataxias, more than 30 diseases have now been unravelled. The number of ataxic disorders will increase with aging, the cerebellum being the structure of the brain with the most important loss of neurons with age. More than 300 different cerebellar disorders are encountered during daily practice, but we are missing a single source of information explaining their pathogenesis. Despite the immense amount of knowledge acquired about the cerebellar circuitry these last years, a large book covering the neuroscience of the cerebellum is missing. The goal of this endeavour is to bring up to date information relevant for basic science and also for clinical activities. To reach this goal, the most renowned authors are gathered in a unique and in-depth book with a format of a handbook. We emphasize the connections between molecular findings, imaging features, behavioural/neuropsychological aspects, and clinical implications.

Peripheral Nerve Disorders Book Review:

Hereditary ataxias (HA) encompass an increasing number of degenerative disorders characterized by progressive cerebellar ataxia usually accompanied by extracerebellar semeiology including peripheral nerve involvement. Classically, HA were classified according to their pathological hallmark comprising three main forms: (1) spinal form predominantly with degeneration of spinocerebellar tracts, posterior columns, and pyramidal tracts (Friedreich’s ataxia, FA); (2) olivopontocerebellar atrophy (OPCA); and (3) cortical cerebellar atrophy (CCA). In the 1980s Harding proposed a clinico-genetic classification based upon age of onset, modality of transmission, and clinical semeiology. The main categories in this classification were as follows: (1) early onset cerebellar ataxia (EOCA) with age of onset below 25 years and usually with autosomal recessive (AR) transmission (this group encompasses FA and syndromes different from FA); (2) autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia (ADCA) with adult onset and with either cerebellar-plus syndrome or pure cerebellar semeiology; and (3) idiopathic late onset onset cerebellar ataxia (ILOCA). With the advent of molecular genetics, the nosology of HA has been in a state of constant flux. At present EOCA comprises at least 17 genotypes (designated with the acronym of ARCA derived from AR cerebellar ataxia), whereas under the umbrella of ADCA 30 genotypes have been reported. In this chapter we will review peripheral nerve involvement in classical pathological entities (OPCA and CCA), ARCA, ADCA, and ILOCA paying special attention to the most prevalent syndromes in each category. As a general rule, nerve involvement is relatively common in any form of ataxia except ILOCA, the most common pattern being either sensory or sensorimotor neuronopathy with a dying-back process. An exception to this rule is AR spastic ataxia of Charlevoix–Saguenay where nerve conduction studies show the characteristic pattern of intermediate neuropathy implying that sacsin mutation causes both axonal and Schwann cell dysfunction.

Greenfield s Neuropathology Eighth Edition 2 Volume Set Book Review:

Greenfield's Neuropathology, the worlds leading neuropathology reference, provides an authoritative, comprehensive account of the pathological findings in neurological disease, their biological basis and their clinical manifestations. This account is underpinned throughout by a clear description of the molecular and cellular processes and reactions that are relevant to the development, and normal and abnormal functioning of, the nervous system. While this scientific content is of paramount importance, however, care has been taken to ensure that the information is presented in a way that is accessible to readers working within a range of disciplines in the clinical neurosciences, and that also places the neuropathological findings within the context of a broader diagnostic process. The new eighth edition incorporates much new information, new illustrations and many new authors, while retaining the depth, breadth and quality of content so praised in previous editions. Each chapter opens with an introductory section designed to offer an integrated approach to diagnosis, taking account of clinical manifestations, neuroradiological and laboratory findings as well as the neuropathological and molecular genetic features of the diseases being considered. Strong emphasis has been placed on facilitating the retrieval of neuropathological information by non-neuropathologists grapping with differential diagnoses or seeking information on broad categories of neurological disease, and boxes and tables are used to present important symptoms and signs, patterns of disease and other features for ease of reference. High quality line and photographic illustrations, the majority in full colour, are all available on a companion CD, to complete the offering.

Inherited Ataxias Book Review:

In this volume, more than 50 leading international experts review the latest scientific and clinical observations on inherited ataxias. The book demonstrates how molecular genetic studies, as well as recent physiological, neurochemical, and clinical data, have generated new concepts on the nosology of these disorders. Close attention is given to the important practical applications of these new findings - in diagnosis, prognosis, and genetic counseling, in development of tests for prenatal diagnosis and carrier detection, and in the search for more effective therapies. The opening chapter identifies the clinical features that distinguish the various inherited ataxic syndromes and presents a classification based on etiology, mode of inheritance, age of onset, and associated clinical features. A major portion of the book focuses on current clinical and molecular genetic studies of different forms of inherited ataxia. Coverage includes a molecular analysis of the Friedreich's ataxia locus and extensive studies on autosomal recessive spastic ataxia of Charlevoix-Saguenay, ataxia telangiectasia, dominantly inherited spinocerebellar ataxias, Machado-Joseph disease, and inherited prion diseases. The contributors provide detailed information on the various clinical phenotypes of each form of inherited ataxia and thoroughly explain the use of linkage analysis and other molecular genetic techniques to localize and isolate the genes responsible for these diseases. The book also reviews the most significant research findings on neurotransmitters in the cerebellum, on the phosphoinositide second messenger system in cerebellar degenerative disorders, and on oligodendrocyte-associated and myelin-associated inhibitors of neurite growth in the adult nervous system. The contributors assess recent progress in developing drugs for treatment of ataxias and other cerebellar movement disorders and identify new targets for pharmacological intervention. Experimental therapeutic observations on cerebellar grafting in heredodegenerative ataxia are also presented. This volume is an invaluable reference for clinicians treating patients with ataxias or counseling families at risk for inherited neurological diseases. It is also a rich source of ideas for molecular geneticists and for neuroscientists investigating disorders of the cerebellum.

Peripheral Nerve Disorders Book Review:

Disorders of the peripheral nervous system (PNS) are the cause of prominent neurological symptoms including weakness, sensory loss, pain and autonomic dysfunction associated with deficits, morbidity and mortality. These disorders may be primary hereditary or cryptogenic neurologic disorders confined to the PNS or part of the pathology of both the central nervous system and the PNS. Most PNS disorders are secondary to other system disorders and may be responsive to treatment of the primary disease. Important advances have been obtained in several areas including molecular genetics, biochemistry, immunology, morphology and physiology that have enhanced our understanding of the causes and consequences of damage to peripheral nerve. Understanding of both these groups of PNS diseases has greatly expanded over recent years and has led to important advances of treatment both to protect and to repair damages of peripheral nerve. This volume provides an overview of the state-of-the-art of examination, diagnosis and treatment of these very diverse disorders and will be of interest to both the research and clinical neuroscience and neurology communities. Covers both hereditary and cryptogenic neurologic disorders Includes advances in the basic science of PNS from molecular genetics, biochemistry, immunology, morphology and physiology Detailed coverage of neuropathy in connective tissue disorders, infectious disorders, metabolic disorders and malignancy

Reclaiming Natural Movement Book Review:

"When standing I feel unstable, and I often stumble and fall. What can I do to correct this and walk better?" This is a common question people with problem movements ask. They then receive advice, yet little of it is useful to them. Through generations this continually happens, and it is because this next question remains largely unanswered. "Naturally, how do we so easily walk?" Without hesitation or thought, every day we expertly use our natural ability. But most everyone knows nothing about how they are physically doing it. Consider unnatural movements as "broken" natural movements. Now ask, how are broken things fixed? They are restored to their original working order. But how we use our body to make our natural movements happen is not readily understood. This explains the problem. Without knowing how we physically create our natural movements; it is not possible to understand and correct the mechanics of the unnatural movements people develop. This book provides useful answers to this dilemma. In simple straightforward terms with detailed illustrations, Reclaiming Natural Movement describes the practical workings of our movements. For both natural and unnatural, the functional relationship of our posture to our movements is explained.
