Experimental and Clinical Neurotoxicology Book Review:

Two decades have passed since publication of the first edition of Experimental and Clinical Neurotoxicology pioneered the development of this discipline. Since then no other book has approached the breadth, scholarship, and balance of that landmark volume. For this long-awaited second edition, the original editors have been joined by Albert Ludolf, who brings expertise in biological neurotoxicology, and together with their distinguished contributors they have completely rewritten and reorganized the text. The scientific and clinical foundation is laid in three comprehensive introductory chapters. An overview of the biological basis of neurotoxicity provides the goundwork for discussing the scope of human and veterinary neurotoxic disease.The bulk of the text is devoted to an alphabetical treatment of chemicals with neurotoxic potential. This consists of tightly written overviews of the properties, actions, and mechanisms of all manner of substances, whether natural or synthetic. The neurotoxic side effects of experimental agents and of therapeutic as well as abused drugs are covered extensively. Environmental pollutants, workplace contaminants, personal-use products, food additives, and agents harbored by plants, animals, and humans for use against their respective enemies are discussed. Each substance is rated on a three-point scale for the weight of evidence indicating a specific neurotoxic effect in humans, animals, or laboratory models. These effects are summarized and cross-referenced in a series of appendices and an extensive index. In summary, the second edition establishes neurotoxicology as a scientific discipline that melds neurobiology, toxicology, and neurology. From this unique vantage point, the book examines in encyclopedic manner several hundred chemicals with the capacity to induce neurological illness in humans and animals. Indispensable for the experimental neuroscientist and toxicologist, as well as for practitioners of human and animal medicine, the book also provides an authoritative, critical, and pithy reference work for specialists in public health and the legal profession.

Environmental Neurotoxicology Book Review:

Scientists agree that exposure to toxic agents in the environment can cause neurological and psychiatric illnesses ranging from headaches and depression to syndromes resembling parkinsonism. It can even result in death at high exposure levels. The emergence of subclinical neurotoxicity--the concept that long-term impairments can escape clinical detection--makes the need for risk assessment even more critical. This volume paves the way toward definitive solutions, presenting the current consensus on risk assessment and environmental toxicants and offering specific recommendations. The book covers: The biologic basis of neurotoxicity. Progress in the application of biologic markers. Reviews of a wide range of in vitro and in vivo testing techniques. The use of surveillance and epidemiology to identify neurotoxic hazards that escape premarket screening. Research needs. This volume will be an important resource for policymakers, health specialists, researchers, and students.

Applied Clinical Neuropsychology Book Review:

"Luring readers in...with meticulously woven clinical vignettes, Holtz masterfully presents the mechanics and the art of neuropsychology....students will appreciate the historical roots of neuropsychology, [and] will understand the multiplex systems of current neuropsychological approaches..." -Nancy S. Koven, PhD Bates College "...there has not been an available text focusing on the application of the basic principles in clinical neuropsychological practice....Finally, a text is available to remedy this problem." -Dennis Andersen, MS, LMHC Eastern Washington University "A valuable introduction to the field of clinical neuropsychology and its terminology, this text fills a void. The reader gains an appreciation for the multifaceted role of the clinical neuropsychologist, not only as an assessor of cognitive functioning but also as a treatment professional." Lauren Littlefield, PhD, Washington College This breakthrough introductory text-unlike all other clinical neuropsychology textbooks on the market-introduces advanced undergraduate students and clinicians in training to the field by showing undergraduate students how clinical neuropsychologists actually practice their craft. The book uncovers the professional issues that clinical neuropsychologists deal with daily, including neurogenerative disorders, acquired disorders, ethical practice issues, interviewing, testing, prognosis and treatment planning, drug prescriptions, and more. Using case studies culled from the author's own clinical work, the book provides students with firsthand accounts of neuropsychology in action. As the first textbook to integrate real, practical applications of neuropsychology, it covers the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of individuals with brain illness or injury, as opposed to examining brain structures and functions alone. This innovative, application-based approach to neuropsychology is guaranteed to give students a clear, comprehensive understanding of what neuropsychology is and what neuropsychologists do. Key features: Covers core concepts of neuropsychology, including neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, brain structure and function, and disorders of the central nervous system Includes application-based topics not covered in traditional texts, such as: differential diagnosis; individual, group, and family therapy; and psychopharmacology Discusses test theory and evaluation, examining tests of intellectual abilities, memory functioning, and more Extensive instructors' ancillary package available with test questions and nearly 100 illustrations in PowerPoint format

Occupational and Environmental Neurotoxicology Book Review:

ritten by a noted expert in occupational and environmental medicine and neurology, this volume offers clinicians much-needed guidance in diagnosing and treating neurologic disorders caused by chemical exposure. The book delineates the key symptoms, presents an approach to assessing exposed individuals, and provides clinically relevant information on the twenty major occupational and environmental neurotoxicants. Discussions of the neurotoxic agents follow a consistent, user-friendly format. Dr. Feldman briefly describes the physical nature and chemical structure of each substance and its sources of exposure, recommended exposure limits, and metabolism. He then details the symptoms and physical findings associated with the substance, the most useful confirmatory diagnostic tests, and the most appropriate therapeutic and preventive measures. Finally, he presents case histories and discusses the acute and long-term risks of various exposure scenarios

Handbook of Nuclear Biological and Chemical Agent Exposures Book Review:

Treating nuclear, biological, and chemical agent exposures presents a unique set of challenges. These scenarios usually involve multiple exposures, sometimes even mass exposures, from a single, often poorly-defined, event. Early symptoms are not distinct and can often be variable. Laboratory analyses may be required from environmental, often nonbiological, specimens. Scene evaluation and pre-hospital decontamination may turn out to be the most important intervention. Hospital resource utilization must be a consideration. Even the pathologist performing autopsies needs adequate preparation. It is with these considerations in mind that the Handbook of Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Agent Exposures was created. Taking a concise yet comprehensive, clinical approach to the treatment of these exposures, the authors provide concise information on radiation substances, biological agents, chemical toxins, laboratory tests, and antidotes. The book includes essays on topics such as Field Identification and Decontamination of Toxins, Bioterrorism and the Skin, and Mass Exposures Involving the Pediatric Population. A quick review of the contents will tell you that this book contains the tools you need when facing the formidable tasks of diagnosing and treating nuclear, biological, and chemical agent exposures.
