The study of patients affected by disorders of the central nervous system is one of the crucial Research methods for investigating the Organization of cognitive functions in the brain. However, many clinicians remain unaware of the significant advances that have taken place in the field of cognitive Neuroscience in the last decades. This book provides an introduction to the cognitive and behavioural aspects of the Clinical practice of neurology.
Most of the contributors to this book combine an active Clinical practice with a leading role in their respective Research area, and have provided concise summaries of the theoretical advances which they consider as potentially relevant for the Clinical evaluation and treatment of patients. This General approach has led to a format which is different from the many Textbooks of Neuropsychology that have appeared in the last few years. The Organization of the material follows the main Issues of diagnostic evaluation, Clinical presentation and management. As a consequence, the book deals not only with the classical neuropsychological syndromes associated with stroke and degenerative dementias, but also with other common Clinical conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, head injury, epilepsy and Psychiatric disorders, which are often neglected in Neuropsychology textbooks.
Cognitive Neurology will be essential for neurologists in training, who want to understand how the observations they make everyday in the clinic relate to the expanding knowledge about the Organization of cognition and emotion in the human brain. It will also be of Interest to psychologists and cognitive neuroscientists, Speech and language clinicians and rehabilitation specialists and psychiatrists.

Examples used to illustrate basic concepts in limnology are drawn from all over the world – North, South and Central America, Africa, New Zealand, Japan, Europe, Antarctica and the Arctic. This wide array of examples allows the authors to point out marked differences in size, basin shape, climate and biota and yet illustrate a unity of principles in this science. The second edition is extensively updated to reflect the changes that have occurred over the last decade. There are two new chapters on wetlands and another on large rivers, as a response to the emerging trend for limnologists to broaden their horizons beyond lakes and streams. The chapters on light and phosphorus were completely rewritten and the chapters on phytoplankton, zooplankton and food chains have been extensively revised.

For decades, Emery and Rimoin’s Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics and Genomics has served as the ultimate resource for clinicians integrating genetics into medical practice. With detailed coverage in contributions from over 250 of the world’s most trusted authorities in medical genetics and a series of 11 volumes available for individual sale, the Seventh Edition of this classic reference includes the latest information on seminal topics such as prenatal diagnosis, genome and exome sequencing, public health genetics, genetic counseling, and management and treatment strategies to complete its coverage of this growing field for medical students, residents, physicians, and researchers involved in the care of patients with genetic conditions. This comprehensive yet practical resource emphasizes theory and research fundamentals related to applications of medical genetics across the full spectrum of inherited disorders and applications to medicine more broadly.
This volume, Foundations, summarizes basic theories, concepts, research areas, and the history of medical genetics, providing a contextual framework for integrating genetics into medical practice. In this new edition, clinically oriented information is supported by full-color images and expanded sections on the foundations of genetic analytics, next generation sequencing, and therapeutics.
With regular advances in genomic technologies propelling precision medicine into the clinic, Emery and Rimoin’s Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics and Genomics: Seventh Edition bridges the gap between high-level molecular genetics and practical application and serves as an invaluable clinical tool for the health professionals and researchers.
- Introduces genetic researchers, students, and health professionals to basic theories, concepts, research areas, and the history of medical genetics, offering a contextual framework for integrating genetics into medical practice
- Completely revised and up-to-date, this new edition highlights traditional approaches and new developments in the field of medical genetics, including cancer genetics, genomic technologies, genome and exome sequencing, prenatal diagnosis, public health genetics, genetic counseling, and single-cell analysis for diagnosis
- Includes color images supporting identification, concept illustration, and method processing
- Features contributions by leading international researchers and practitioners of medical genetics

This major reference work, now in its third edition, updates and advances the field of diagnostic medical parasitology and reports on the dramatic changes that have occurred in this area. Newly recognized parasites, alternative techniques defined by new regulatory requirements, implementation of testing based on molecular techniques, and new information on parasitic infections are just a few of the changes covered in this edition.
As in previous editions, this book′s approach is still to provide the user with clear, concise, well–organized procedures for use in the clinical laboratory. The text also provides a comprehensive discussion of two aspects of diagnostic medical parasitology – the individual parasites and the diagnostic methods designed to detect and identify the organisms present. These discussions cover information related to life cycle, morphology, clinical disease, diagnosis, treatment, epidemilogy and prevention.

Human Parasitology, Fifth Edition emphasizes a medical perspective that also incorporates functional morphology, physiology, biochemistry and immunology to enhance appreciation of the diverse implications of parasitism. Bridging the gap between classical clinical parasitology texts and traditional encyclopedic treatises, the book will not only appeal to students interested in the medical aspects of parasitology, but also those who are interested in gaining a solid foundation in the biology of parasites. This updated edition has been fully revised to integrate the most recent molecular discoveries about mosquitoes, ticks and other arthropods as vectors, along with the most effective therapeutic regimens for each.
- Integrates the most recent molecular discoveries on mosquitoes, ticks and other arthropods
- Features expanded coverage of the evolution of parasitism and an extensive update on the immunology of parasite-host interactions
- Offers an enhanced art program that features lifecycle illustrations and additional SEM and TEM micrographs
- Provides a New Host Immune Response section for each organism
- Includes a special section on the impact of genomics

Bernard Rosner’s FUNDAMENTALS OF BIOSTATISTICS is a practical introduction to the methods, techniques, and computation of statistics with human subjects. It prepares students for their future courses and careers by introducing the statistical methods most often used in medical literature. Rosner minimizes the amount of mathematical formulation (algebra-based) while still giving complete explanations of all the important concepts. As in previous editions, a major strength of this book is that every new concept is developed systematically through completely worked out examples from current medical research problems.
