Neuroinfectious Diseases Book Review:

Neuroinfectious Diseases brings to light the latest information in a field that is rapidly expanding as a result of the re-emergence of unvaccinated populations. Newly emerging infections may rapidly grow to epidemic proportions and spread over large geographical areas. Infectious diseases of the nervous system, for example, can be caused by a diverse range of infectious agents as well as post-infectious neurological syndromes. In this book, renowned experts review the most recent advances to provide a timely and up-to-date overview of the field. Covers emerging diseases like Ebola, Chikungunya, West Nile and Zika Examines the role of the systemic immune system and neuroimmune interaction Discusses animal models, in vitro drug discovery, and human studies Addresses the dearth of clinical trials and how research can proceed Looks ahead to future potential epidemics like tick-borne illnesses

Neuroimmune Diseases Book Review:

A translational overview of neuroimmune diseases for neuroscientists and clinicians that clarifies the pathological mechanisms underlying neuroimmune diseases and builds a comprehensive bridge between the latest research findings and their clinical implications in daily practice. The material is presented in two steps. The first section comprises a review of the pathogenic actions of immune cells in brain diseases. Here the authors discuss the mechanisms through which immune cells disrupt the functions of nerve cells. The second section explores the ways in which the brain becomes dysfunctional due to impaired nerve cell function. Based on pathogenesis, diagnostic and therapeutic strategies are discussed for each clinical category. The book will be invaluable for use in clinical practice of neuroimmune diseases

Inflammatory Diseases of the Brain Book Review:

This second, updated edition of Inflammatory Diseases of the Brain provides a comprehensive overview of the field from a neuroradiological point of view. In order to ensure a standardized approach throughout, each disease-oriented chapter is again subdivided into three principal sections: epidemiology, clinical presentation, and therapy; imaging; and differential diagnosis. A separate chapter addresses technical and methodological issues and imaging protocols. An important focus of the book is the current role of advanced MR imaging techniques, such as diffusion and perfusion MRI and MR spectroscopy, in the differentiation of inflammatory and other brain diseases. All of the authors are recognized experts, and the numerous high-quality and informative illustrations include some not contained in the first edition. This book will be of great value not only to neuroradiologists but also to neurologists, neuropediatricians, and general radiologists.

A Primer of Neuroimmunological Disease Book Review:

A Primer of Neuroimmunological Disease is a significant new resource for anyone interested in conditions such as multiple sclerosis(MS), myasthenia gravis, and neurological infections. It is a practical and balanced guide to the diagnosis and treatment of neuroimmunological disease. A Primer of Neuroimmunological Disease distinguishes itself by providing a range of features not generally included in texts on neuroimmunology. These include broad presentation of information in the form of figures and tables; strong cohesion among topics by focusing on a few prototypic neuroimmunological diseases, which serve as a foundation from which to explore other neuroimmunological diseases; a single author perspective, with references across chapters; and a focus on the overlap between neuroimmunological and neuroinfectious diseases. Neurologists, immunologists, infectious disease specialists, neuroscientists and others interested in neuroimmunological diseases such as MS will find A Primer of Neuroimmunological to be a state-of-the-art resource.

Neurological Disorders Book Review:

Although there are several gaps in understanding the many issues related to neurological disorders, we know enough to be able to shape effective policy responses to some of the most common. This book describes and discusses the increasing public health impact of common neurological disorders such as dementia, epilepsy, headache disorders, multiple sclerosis, neuroinfections, neurological disorders associated with malnutrition, pain associated with neurological disorders, Parkinson's disease, stroke and traumatic brain injuries. It provides information and advice on public health interventions that may reduce their occurrence and consequences, and offers health professionals and planners the opportunity to assess the burden caused by these disorders. The clear message that emerges is that unless immediate action is taken globally, the neurological burden is likely to become an increasingly serious and unmanageable.

Emerging Roles of Long Noncoding RNAs in Neurological Diseases and Metabolic Disorders Book Review:

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a new class of transcripts that are in general longer than 200 nucleotides and that have no protein-coding potential. The vast majority of vertebrate genomes encode diverse and complex lncRNAs that play regulatory roles at almost every step of gene expression. Recently, increasing evidence has implicated lncRNAs in the pathogenesis of various human diseases. The purpose of the Research Topic, "Emerging roles of long noncoding RNAs in neurological diseases and metabolic disorders", is to bring together leading researchers in the field who, through contributing to an organized and comprehensive collection of peer-reviewed articles, provide a broad perspective on the latest advances in the field. A number of interesting and cutting-edge areas will be covered as below, but this list is not exclusive: - The methodologies and technologies of identifying and studying lncRNAs - LncRNAs in gene-specific transcription - LncRNAs in epigenetic regulation - LncRNAs in post-transcriptional regulation - LncRNAs in disease - Mapping of noncoding single nucleotide polymorphisms associated with disease.

Case Based Neurology Book Review:

If it is true that a picture is worth a thousand words, a visual memory of a good clinical case will be retained and absorbed in a way that traditional text readings are not. Case-based Neurology is organized by chief complaint, each case includes an introduction, physical exam, case questions, laboratory testing and imaging findings,, diagnosis, and discussion including differential diagnosis and treatment.. The back of the book provides a topic list for readers who want to review cases by disease pathology or subject, rather than as unknowns, covering movement disorders, epilepsy, trauma, stroke, tumors, vascular lesions, and more. All major areas of neurology are covered, and the cases come from the authors' personal experience working at a major tertiary referral center. Both typical and atypical presentations of a disease are included. Cases are illustrated with high-quality images, and diagnosis and clinical management is emphasized. For each case, controversies in management are discussed and references provided. Features of Case-Based Neurology include: • Case-based format that simulates clinical situations and strengthens diagnostic skills • Effective teaching and learning tool; ideal for Board preparation • Consistent presentation • Management focus; Clinical correlates and key points are emphasized • Highly illustrated
