note will introduce students to the major systems of the brain, which underlie
these abilities – focusing on sensory, motor and memory systems. It will start
with classical "textbook" concepts and methods in the field of Systems
Neuroscience, but will then emphasize contemporary approaches, concepts and
This book focuses on
the Traumatic brain injury pathobiology as well as on the recent developments in
advanced diagnostics and acute management. The presented topics encompass
personal experience and visions of the chapter contributors as well as an
extensive analysis of the TBI literature. The book is addressed to a broad
audience of readers from students to practicing clinicians.
Central nervous system diseases,
also known as central nervous system disorders, are a group of neurological
disorders that affect the structure or function of the brain or spinal cord,
which collectively form the central nervous system. This book covers the
following topics: Signs and symptoms of Central nervous system disease, Types of
CNS disorders, Neurodegenerative disorders, Autoimmune disorders, Stroke, Spinal
This book covers
the following topics: The Nervous Functions, The Neuron, The Reflex Circuits,
The General Physiology of the Nervous System, General Anatomy and Subdivision of
the Nervous System, Spinal Cord and Its Nerves, Medulla Oblongata and
Cerebellum, The Cerebrum, General Somatic Systems of Conduction Paths, Auditory
Apparatus, Sympathetic Nervous System, Structure of the Cerebral Cortex,
Functions of the Cerebral Cortex.
This is a
list of major and frequently observed neurological disorders, symptoms, signs
and syndromes. There is disagreement over the definitions and criteria used to
delineate various disorders and whether some of these conditions should be
classified as mental disorders or in other ways.
The object of
this book is to set forth in practical form, on the basis of the Case System,
certain fundamental facts regarding the symptomatology, diagnosis, treatment and pathological findings in the more
frequent disorders of the nervous system.
