Neurophysiology and Neuropsychology of Motor Development

No Comments

The central focus of this book is the development of skilled motor actions by children; commonplace but vital actions such as maintaining posture, walking, reaching and grasping, and manipulating objects and tools. It represents a state-of-the art report on motor development linking neurophysiological and neuropsychological approaches. Using examples from both normal and pathological development, contributions study pre and postnatal brain development and its relationship to movement, the importance of fetal movements, postural control in children, the neurobiology of locomotor development, neural mechanisms of grasping and typical patterns of behavioural change. New theoretical developments including adaptive model theory, dynamic systems theory, and the relationship between variability and stability in skill development are also critically reviewed.

Color Atlas of Neuroscience

No Comments

Taking a uniquely visual approach to complex subject matter, this pocket Flexibook gives you a full understanding of the basics of neuroscience with 193 exquisite color plates and concise text. Following in the successful tradition of the basic sciences Thieme Flexibooks, this title presents anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology of neuroscience. You will find in-depth coverage of: neuroanatomy, embryology, cellular neuroscience, somatosensory processing, motor control, brain stem and cranial outflow, autonomic nervous system, and much more! The book is designed to supplement larger texts and is ideal as both an introduction to the subject and a complete study guide for exam preparation. It will prove invaluable for all medical and biology students.

Neurophysiology

No Comments

The latest edition of this well-established, accessible introduction to neurophysiology succeeds in integrating the disciplines of neurology and neuroscience with an emphasis on principles and functional concepts.

In Neurophysiology: A Conceptual Approach, Fifth Edition, the authors deliver a refreshing alternative to “learning by rote,” employing a variety of techniques to encourage understanding. Readers can learn both the science underlying a particular phenomenon and what this means for individual body systems and for the body as a whole. The fifth edition retains the readable style of its predecessors—covering the entire subject of neurophysiology from the conduction of nerve impulses to the higher functions of the brain within a single accessible volume. A companion website offers free self-assessment material and access to the highly acclaimed NeuroLab resources

Full of color explanatory diagrams, the book is an unrivalled “one-stop shop” for students of medicine, physiology and applied physiology, neurophysiology, neuroscience, and other bioscience courses looking for an integrated introduction to the challenging disciplines of neuroscience and neurology.

Head and Neuroanatomy

Praise for the THIEME Atlas of Anatomy: Head and Neuroanatomy:

Comprehensive coverage of neuroanatomy describes isolated structures and also situates these structures within the larger functional systems…It is a must-have book.–ADVANCE for Physical Therapists & PT Assistants

Setting a new standard for the study of anatomy, the THIEME Atlas of Anatomy, with access to WinkingSkull.com PLUS, is more than a collection of anatomical images–it is an indispensable resource for anyone who works with the human body.

Features:

  • An innovative, user-friendly format in which each two-page spread presents a self-contained guide to a specific topic
  • 1,182 original, full-color illustrations present comprehensive coverage of neuroanatomy to skillfully guide the reader through the anatomy of the head, from cranial bones, ligaments, and joints, to muscles, cranial nerves, topographical anatomy, and the anatomy of sensory organs
  • Hundreds of clinical applications emphasize the vital link between anatomical structure and function
  • Expertly rendered cross-sections, x-rays, and CT and MRI scans vividly demonstrate clinical anatomy
  • Clearly labeled images help the reader easily identify each structure
  • Summary tables appear throughout — ideal for rapid review
  • A scratch-off code provides access to Winking Skull.com PLUS, featuring over 600 full-color anatomy illustrations and radiographs, labels-on, labels-off functionality, and timed self-tests

The THIEME Atlas of Anatomy series also features General Anatomy and Musculoskeletal System and Neck and Internal Organs. Each atlas is available in softcover and hardcover and includes access to WinkingSkull.com PLUS.

Use the Head and Neuroanatomy Image Collection to enhance your lectures and presentations; illustrations can be easily imported into presentation software and viewed with or without labeling.

Neuroanatomy

No Comments

The topographical and functional architecture of the human brain is highly complex. This stereoscopic atlas provides new insight into the human brain. The illustrations in this stereoscopic atlas have been developed using a new 3D-visualization computer model. In combination with the CD-ROM, which contains all 173 illustrations as rotatable 3D models, this innovative atlas provides a new conception of spatial structures. It has never been so easy to understand the architecture of the human brain!

The Human Brain and Spinal Cord

No Comments

This book was written to serve both as a guide for the dissection of the human brain and as an illustrated compendium of the functional anatomy of the brain and spinal cord. In this sense, the book represents an updated and expanded version of the book The Human Brain and Spinal Cord written by the author and published in Swedish by Scandinavian University Books in 1961. The complicated anatomy of the brain can often be more easily appreciated and understood in relation to its development. Some insight about the coverings of the brain will also make the brain dissections more meaningful. Introductory chapters on these subjects constitute Part I of the book. Part 2 is composed of the dissection guide, in which text and illustrations are juxtaposed as much as possible in order to facilitate the use of the book in the dissection room. The method of dissection is similar to dissection proce dures used in many medical schools throughout the world, and variations of the technique have been published by several authors including Ivar Broman in the “Manniskohjarnan” (The Human Brain) published by Gleerups F6rlag, Lund, 1926, and Laszlo Komaromy in “Dissection of the Brain,” published by Akademiai Kiado, Budapest, 1947. The great popularity of the CT scanner justifies an extra laboratory session for the comparison of nearly horizontal brain sections with matching CT scans.

Neuroanatomy

No Comments

In this Second Edition of the text, new research that has discarded several previous hypotheses and seeming facts have been pointed out. The text serves the practitioner. Therefore, there is a balance of intellectual neuroanatomy required to correlate neurologic function and structure against the practical neuroanatomy required to diagnose the next patient. In addition more clinical applications throughout the text justify the student’s devotion to learning neuroanatomy.

Neuroanatomy and the Neurologic Exam

In this book!
Neuroanatomy and the Neurologic Exam is an innovative, comprehensive thesaurus that surveys terminology from neuroanatomy and the neurologic examination, as well as related general terms from neurophysiology, neurohistology, neuroembryology, neuroradiology, and neuropathology. The author prepared the thesaurus by examining how terms were used in a large sample of recent, widely used general textbooks in basic neuroanatomy and clinical neurology. These textbooks were written by experts who received their primary professional training in 13 different countries, allowing the thesaurus to incorporate synonyms and conflicting definitions that occur as a result of variations in terminology used in other countries. The thesaurus contains:
