Our Wired Nerves

The nervous system is a complex, sophisticated system that regulates and coordinates body activities. It is made up of two major divisions: the central nervous system consisting of the brain and spinal cord and the peripheral nervous system. This consists of all other neural elements, including the peripheral nerves and the autonomic nerves. Peripheral nerves are the essential connections between the brain and spinal cord and the body. Without nerves there is no movement or sensation. Our Wired Nerves: The Human Nerve Connectome, reviews the essential anatomy and physiology of the peripheral nerve. It introduces the reader to what neuropathies are, how pain arises from damaged nerves and how nerves might be regenerated, including new and exciting ideas over how to coax their regrowth. Written by Dr. Douglas Zochodne leading expert in the field, and first book to focus on the Peripheral nerves it will surely be an essential reference for researchers and clinicians alike. Discusses the barriers to nerve regrowth and new strategies to reverse them Reviews of disorders of the peripheral nerves Exams reasons for nerve injuries Reviews recent discoveries in nerve research

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

Until recently, microglia were thought to be the boring housekeepers of the brain, helpfully pruning away dead cells. But science now understands them to have a terrifying Jekyll and Hyde control over brain health. When triggered, they morph into destroyers, causing a wide range of issues. Under the right circumstances, however, microglia are indeed angelic healers, making repairs in ways that reduce symptoms and, now that we understand their true role, could one day prevent disease. A fascinating behind-the-scenes account

A pioneer in the field outlines new empirical and computational approaches to mapping the neural connections of the human brain. Crucial to understanding how the brain works is connectivity, and the centerpiece of brain connectivity is the connectome, a comprehensive description of how neurons and brain regions are connected. In this book, Olaf Sporns surveys current efforts to chart these connections—to map the human connectome. He argues that the nascent field of connectomics has already begun to influence the
