This comprehensive text summarizes what is known about the myriad of different neurological conditions that cause dysfunction of communication, swallowing, and breathing as it relates to the upper aerodigestive tract. It serves to provide clinicians and scientists, at all levels of experience, a practical and thorough review of these diseases, their management, and frontiers in science. Chapters are written by experts in these conditions from a broad spectrum of medical specialties in order to create a book that is inclusive of diagnostic and therapeutic considerations that clinicians should think about when caring for patients with these conditions. Neurologic and Neurodegenerative Diseases of the Larynx will be an instrumental resource in guiding clinicians to better recognize the subtle and not so subtle voice, swallowing, and airway manifestations of these diseases, and improve management of patient symptoms and concerns in order to maximize both quality of life and longevity. It will aide otolaryngologists, laryngologists, neurologists, speech language pathologists, and other allied health care professionals in developing a more efficient, evidence-based, patient-focused, and multi-specialty approach to managing these complex and challenging patients.

Dystonia has many facets, and among those, this book commences with the increasingly associated genes identified, including a construct on how biology interacts with the dystonia genesis. The clinical phenomenology of dystonia as approached in the book is interesting because, not only were the cervical, oromandibular/lingual/laryngeal, task-specific and secondary dystonias dealt with individually, but that the associated features such as parkinsonism, tremors and spasticity were also separately presented. Advances in dystonia management followed, and they ranged from dopaminergic therapy, chemodenervation, surgical approaches and rehabilitation, effectively complementing the approach in dystonia at the clinics. A timely critical pathophysiologic review, including the muscle spindle involvement in dystonia, is highlighted at the book's end.

"NeuroKids" is the innovative answer to the clinical challenges in child neurology as workbook and corresponding app. With the basic idea of mind maps, the classic textbook has been further developed to provide more targeted information. An uniform classification allows a quick orientation: The Paediatric Clinical Scouts (PCS) provide a condensed knowledge overview and are a guide to diagnostic work-up and therapeutic decision-making. The PCS concentrate on the single patient and give professional skills for emergency medicine, for health care of chronically ill children and adolescents and rehabilitative and palliative therapy. The PCS are complemented by a comprehensive, precise, internationally oriented drug register as well as schemes for neurological and developmental neurological examination with the evidence of good practice. "I am very happy that NeuroKids was endorsed and supported by the board of the European Paediatric Neurology Society (EPNS). We sincerely believe this is a major step forward in training and educating young and old paediatric neurologists and are therefore extremely happy to collaborate in this project." (Lieven Lagae, President European Paediatric Neurology Society) In cooperation with: European Paediatric Neurology Society (EPNS) Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany Paediatric Neurology and Developmental Medicine, Children's Hospital Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany Institute for Medical Education (DAM) Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany Center for International Health (CIH)

Neurorehabilitation is an expanding field with an increasing clinical impact due to an ageing population. During the last 20 years, neurorehabilitation has developed from a discipline with little scientific background, separated from other medical centers, to a medical entity largely based on the principles of 'evidenced based medicine' with strong ties to basic research and clinical neurology. Today neurorehabilitation is still a work in progress and treatment standards are not yet established for all aspects of the field. There are very few books that address contemporary neurorehabilitation from this perspective. This new edition of the Oxford Textbook of Neurorehabilitation provides an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of the subject as well as a clear perspective on how (and why) to approach treatment decisions on an individualized basis. The book has been thoroughly updated to reflect novel important developments in the field and includes new chapters on vocational rehabilitation, self-management strategies in neurorehabilitation, and music supported therapy in neurorehabilitation. This indispensable book will be of great interest to rehabilitation physicians, neurologists, and allied health care professionals who look after patients requiring neurorehabilitation.

The ever-improving emergency care of those who have suffered serious cerebrovascular disease has shifted the treatment objective towards helping sufferers regain independence - meaning that there is an increased need to understand, manage and treat the residual deficits. The Behavioral and Cognitive Neurology of Stroke focuses on the diagnosis and management of behavioral and cognitive problems in patients with cerebrovascular disease. Written to be practical for clinical use, the book contains diagnosis and management strategies for all disorders observed in stroke patients, including acute and later problems, and aiming to minimize long-term disability. All important information related to each disorder is summarized in key-point tables. Fully updated throughout and containing five new chapters, this new edition brings the book up to date with the major advances of the last five years. This book will be of value to all clinicians caring for stroke patients, neuroscientists, neuropsychologists, neurorehabilitationists and a wide range of therapists.

Nicotine and Other Tobacco Compounds in Neurodegenerative and Psychiatric Diseases: Epidemiological Data on Smoking and Preclinical and Clinical Data on Nicotine provides a comprehensive summary of the epidemiological data on smoking and several neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Tourette’s syndrome, schizophrenia, anxiety, depression and ADHD, as well as preclinical and clinical data on the effects of nicotine. Despite the obvious and undisputed harmful nature of smoking, evidence suggests that some tobacco and tobacco smoke-derived constituents may offer neuroprotective effects, possibly in combinations, rather than individually. This unprecedented book describes the complex relationships between smoking and neurological disease and the bioactive compounds found in tobacco. It provides a comprehensive review of nicotine and other compounds found in tobacco plant, with scientific evidence of neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory effects that may act in conjunction with nicotine to exert neuroprotective effects observed in smokers. By presenting findings beyond harmful cigarette smoke effects, attention can be drawn to individual compounds of tobacco that may serve as inspiration for further therapy development. Presents the first comprehensive, tabulated summary of literature on the epidemiological data on smoking and neurological disease Includes preclinical and clinical data on nicotine in neurological diseases and mechanisms of action of nicotine in neuroprotection Features a comprehensive summary of non-nicotine smoke constituents with potentially neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties Discusses Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Schizophrenia, Depression, ADHD, Anxiety and Tourette’s Syndrome in the context of smoking and nicotine
