Neurotechnology: Premises, Potential, and Problems

New applied sciences that permit us to enquire mechanisms and capabilities of the mind have proven substantial promise in treating mind sickness and damage. those rising applied sciences additionally supply a way to evaluate and control human realization, cognitions, feelings, and behaviors, bringing with them the capability to remodel society.

Minimal Invasive Neurosurgery

Famous medical leaders in neurosurgery and neuroradiology overview the state of the art strategies and applied sciences now on hand and describe how minimally invasive suggestions have motivated their subspecialties. at the radiology aspect, the authors clarify the newest advancements in magnetic resonance spectroscopy, useful imaging, and mind mapping, with emphasis at the software of snapshot navigation at once within the working room, utilizing either preoperative and intraoperative platforms.

Practical Assessment and Treatment of the Patient with Headaches in the Emergency Department and Urgent Care Clinic

Migraine is an exceptionally universal situation affecting nearly 28 million american citizens. totally 1 in each 6 grownup girls suffers from this illness. sufferers with migraine are often obvious within the Emergency Room and pressing Care hospital for acute therapy in their complications. ER and pressing Care physicians quite often have very little formal education in treating those sufferers.

Concise Neurology

Concise Neurology offers neurology content material in a logical series inside each one of ten chapters. almost each subject of curiosity to clinicians is roofed in a single or pages to facilitate effective evaluate of the center innovations in analysis and remedy for every syndrome or illness. the writer has maintained a thematic solidarity throughout similar pages, which permits for random analyzing to be virtually as fruitful as sequential examining.

This strongly supports our earlier prediction that site 2 may be the site where the receptor protein would bind. 29,30 This underscores the importance of crystallographic study for understanding the interactions of drug molecules with toxins (Fig. 2-6). 31 With the knowledge that doxorubicin competes with gangliosides to bind to the toxin and the mechanism is similar to ganglioside binding, it would be a potential lead compound for drug design to treat botulism caused by type B (and G). Although catalytic domain remains an attractive target for botulinum therapeutics, binding domain now can be used as an additional or alternative target because both the ganglioside and protein receptor binding sites have been identified.
