Neuroepidemiology

First published in 1991. This one-of-a-kind publication pays tribute to one of the pre-eminent scientists and educators in neuroepidemiology, Dr. Bruce Schoenberg. The goal of this book is to provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-art review of the work that has taken place in the field of neuroepidemiology over the last decade and address the challenges and prospects of the future. The work presented in this volume focuses on clinically relevant issues related to the magnitude, distribution, natural history, risk factors, treatment, and prevention of the more common neurologic disorders. It also emphasizes methodological problems that affect the design and implementation of studies, as well as the interpretation of results. The book's concise format provides quick access to the major results, difficulties, and challenges discussed within the text. Neuroepidemiology: A Tribute to Bruce Schoenberg should be considered an essential addition to the libraries of all clinical neurologists and epidemiologists.

Neuroepidemiology covers the foundations of neuroepidemiological research and the epidemiology of disorders primarily affecting the nervous system, as well as those originating outside the nervous system. The etiology of many important central nervous system disorders remains elusive. Even with diseases where the key risk determinants have been identified, better prevention and therapy is needed to reduce high incidence and mortality. Although evolving technologies for studying disease provide opportunities for such, it is essential for researchers and clinicians to understand how

Neuroepidemiology in Tropical Health covers major neurological diseases of relevance in tropical settings and examines the specificities of epidemiology of neurological diseases in the context of tropical countries that face many challenges when compared to the developed world. Part One focuses on methods and their eventual specificities, and how such methods, like sampling, can be adapted for specific scenarios. Parts Two and Three discuss environmental factors and their consequences for neurology in the tropical world, as well as large geographical

Brain disordersâ€"neurological, psychiatric, and developmentalâ€"now affect at least 250 million people in the developing world, and this number is expected to rise as life expectancy increases. Yet public and private health systems in developing countries have paid relatively little attention to brain disorders. The negative attitudes, prejudice, and stigma that often surround many of these disorders have contributed to this neglect. Lacking proper diagnosis and treatment, millions of individual lives are lost to disability and death. Such conditions exact

The primary mission of the medical school is to create new doctors. Once the medical student has received his or her doctorate, the medical school's interest in, and acceptance of, responsibility for the continued professional development of the physician ceases almost entirely. Yet, with scientific advances in medicine increasing exponentially and the inevitable erosion of memory with time, teachings from our schools of medicine become increasingly irrelevant, forgotten, or both. To maintain competence, the physician must continuously re-educate him- or

The dawn of neurosurgery can be traced back to the first description preserved in the Edwin Smith papyrus' (3000 Be) which dealt with head and spinal injury. In the course of 5000 years, since the first record in Egypt, advances in lifestyle and technology have brought about our modern civilized society. However, as a result of civilization, currently the total number of severe head injuries worldwide is believed to exceed 10000000 and the number of severe spinal injuries is believed to be more

This book provides reviews of the epidemiology, evaluation, and patient management of central nervous system (CNS) injuries. Internationally recognized clinicians and basic scientists discuss recent research that has significantly advanced the understanding of the pathophysiology of neuronal death and facilitated development of new therapeutic approaches. Novel therapeutic agents evaluated in animal models and currently in clinical trials include: calcium antagonists glutamate receptor antagonists inhibitors of glutamate release endothelial adhesion and nerve growth factors opioids antioxidants, gangliosides thrombolytic agents All of
