Pediatric Brain Stimulation Excerpt :

Pediatric Brain Stimulation: Mapping and Modulating the Developing Brain presents the latest on this rapidly expanding field that has seen an exponential growth in publications over the past 10 years. Non-invasive modalities like TMS can painlessly map and measure complex neurophysiology in real patients. Neuromodulatory applications like rTMS and tDCS carry increasingly proven therapeutic applications. Rapidly advancing technological methodologies are increasing opportunities and indications. Despite all these benefits, applications in the more plastic developing brains of children are only just emerging. This book provides a comprehensive overview of brain stimulation in children. Chapters include Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) fundamentals, brain stimulation in pediatric neurological conditions, and invasive brain stimulation. The main audience for this research will be those interested in applying brain stimulation technologies to advance clinical research and patient care, although a wide variety of clinicians and scientist will find this to be a valuable reference on brain stimulation with specific chapters on a variety of conditions. Provides an overview of recent findings and knowledge of pediatric brain stimulation and the developing brain Edited by renowned leaders in the field of pediatric brain stimulation Presents a great resource for basic and clinical scientists and practitioners in neuroscience, neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry

From Neurons to Neighborhoods Excerpt :

How we raise young children is one of today's most highly personalized and sharply politicized issues, in part because each of us can claim some level of "expertise." The debate has intensified as discoveries about our development-in the womb and in the first months and years-have reached the popular media. How can we use our burgeoning knowledge to assure the well-being of all young children, for their own sake as well as for the sake of our nation? Drawing from new findings, this book presents important conclusions about nature-versus-nurture, the impact of being born into a working family, the effect of politics on programs for children, the costs and benefits of intervention, and other issues. The committee issues a series of challenges to decision makers regarding the quality of child care, issues of racial and ethnic diversity, the integration of children's cognitive and emotional development, and more. Authoritative yet accessible, From Neurons to Neighborhoods presents the evidence about "brain wiring" and how kids learn to speak, think, and regulate their behavior. It examines the effect of the climate-family, child care, community-within which the child grows.

Non Invasive Neuromodulation of the Central Nervous System Excerpt :

Based on advances in biotechnology and neuroscience, non-invasive neuromodulation devices are poised to gain clinical importance in the coming years and to be of increasing interest to patients, clinicians,health systems, payers, and industry. Evidence suggests that both therapeutic and non-therapeutic applications of non-invasive neuromodulation will continue to expand in coming years, particularly for indications where treatments are currently insufficient, such as drug-resistant depression. Given the growing interest in non-invasive neuromodulation technologies, the Institute of Medicine's Forum on Neuroscience and Nervous System Disorders convened a workshop, inviting a range of stakeholders - including developers of devices and new technologies, researchers, clinicians, ethicists, regulators, and payers - to explore the opportunities, challenges, and ethical questions surrounding the development, regulation, and reimbursement of these devices for the treatment of nervous system disorders as well as for non-therapeutic uses, including cognitive and functional enhancement. This report highlights the presentation and discussion of the workshop.

Fundamentals of Pediatric Neuroanesthesia Excerpt :

The book provides an excellent review of all the clinical aspects of neuroanesthesia in children, including neurosurgeries during fetal state to neonatal, infancy, toddler, and school-going age groups. To provide optimal anesthetic care in children undergoing neurosurgery, the care provider must have adequate knowledge on the developing brain and spinal cord, and the effect of anesthetics on the neuronal tissue, and the inherent issues pertaining to neurologic lesions. This book covers the diagnostic, imaging, surgical as well as anesthetic managements of all the neurosurgical problems in children. The chapters include a wide range of topics from basic neurophysiology to general concerns for pediatric neuroanesthesia, including fluid management, blood transfusion, temperature regulation, and surgical positioning, as well as specific issues such as anesthesia for brain tumor surgery, hydrocephalus, neural tube defects, cerebrovascular surgeries such as aneurysmal surgery, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), Moyamoya disease, and vein of Galen malformation, functional neurosurgery, epilepsy surgery, neuroendoscopy, craniovertebral junction anomalies, spinal surgeries, neurotrauma, and brain abscess with congenital heart diseases. Interesting topics like neuroanesthesia in remote locations, regional anesthesia during neurosurgery, and anesthesia for children with neuromuscular disease are also discussed. Moreover, the book elaborates on advanced neuroanesthesia techniques during fetal neurosurgery and craniopagus separation surgery; and the postoperative intensive care management aspects in each chapter. It is supplemented with figures depicting surgical procedures and positioning, neuroimages, tables and illustrations for easy understanding. This book caters to neuroanesthesiologists, pediatric anesthesiologists, residents, and fellows of anesthesia or neuroanesthesia, practicing anesthesiologists, pediatric neurointensivists, nurse anesthetists, neurosurgeons, and pe
