The Cerebral Cortex in Neurodegenerative and Neuropsychiatric Disorders

The Cerebral Cortex in Neurodegenerative and Neuropsychiatric Disorders: Experimental Approaches to Clinical Issues focuses on how pre-clinical investigations are addressing the clinical issues surrounding the involvement of the cerebral cortex in selected conditions of the nervous system, including Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s, addiction, and cardiovascular dysregulation. Each chapter is written by an expert in his/her field who provides a comprehensive review of the clinical manifestations of cortical involvement and experimental techniques currently available to tackle cortical issues in disease. Thus, this present title provides a link between cortical clinical problems and investigational approaches to help foster future research with high translational value. Offers a comprehensive overview on the best available in vivo and in vitro models to study cortical involvement Presents models and specific techniques that help to guide investigators in their choices on how to address research questions experimentally Provides expert commentary and a perspective on future trends at the end of each chapter Addresses translational advances and promising therapeutic options Includes references to key articles for additional detailed study

Sensory, cognitive, and emotional processing are rooted in the cerebral cortex. The cerebral cortex is comprised of six layers defined by the neurons within them that have distinctive connection, both within cortex itself and with other subcortical structures. Although still far from solving the mysteries of the mind, it is clear that networks form by neurons in the cerebral cortex provide the computational substrate for a remarkable range of behaviours. This neuron to neuron activation is mediated through dendritic spines,

The cerebral neo cortex, unique to mammals, is regarded as the prerequisite for higher cognitive function and is the structure most closely associated with the idea of the "mind" . Expansion of mental capa city between mammals is most typically associated with an evolutionary increase in neocortical volume that culminates in the intricately folded configuration of sulci and gyri so charac teristic of the primate cerebral cortex. Yet, the basic unit structure and funda mental connectivity of cortex appears to have

The Functional Scalp Acupuncture (FSA) model promotes the application of neuroscience and evidenced-based acupuncture research to the treatment of chronic pain, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), autoimmune, and Alzheimer's disease. Neuroscience has dramatically increased our knowledge and understanding of the underlying dysfunction in each of these conditions. As we shall soon discover, each disorder has a well-established 'neurobiological signature' that can give us clues as to where the imbalances lie and how to
