Diseases of the Nervous System Book Excerpt:

Nervous system diseases are also known as neurological disorders. The nervous system consists of central and peripheral nervous systems. The brain and spinal cord together make the central nervous system. The brain is present in the skull and protected by cranium whereas the spinal cord is protected by the vertebrae. Nervous system diseases are neurological disorders that affect the functioning of the whole system. They are majorly caused by traumatic brain injury, infection in the brain or spinal cord or structural defects such as anencephaly and hypospadias. The symptoms of the nervous system diseases are pain in the face, arms, back or legs, lack of concentration, loss of feeling and constant headache. Epilepsy, spina bifida, Parkinson's disease, seizure disorders and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis are some examples of the diseases of the nervous system. This book contains some path-breaking studies related to the diseases of the nervous system. It presents researches and studies performed by experts across the globe. It is appropriate for students seeking detailed information in neurology as well as for experts.

Inflammatory Disorders of the Nervous System Book Excerpt:

A cutting-edge review of the fundamental biological principles underlying the more common inflammatory disorders of the nervous system. The authors provide extensive updates on the latest findings concerning the mechanisms of inflammation and introduce such new concepts and methodologies as "endothelial and leukocyte microparticles" and "gene microarray technology" to help explain important links between the central nervous system (CNS) and general inflammatory processes. Among the diseases examined from an inflammatory perspective are multiple sclerosis, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, optic neuritis, transverse myelitis, CNS vasculitis, neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosis, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease. The role of the immune system in neuroinflammation is also explored in such disorders as neurosarcoidois, HIV-Associated dementia, and HTLV-associated neurological disorders.

Diseases of the Nervous System Book Excerpt:

"The diseases of the nervous system are no longer compassed by a description of the gross lesions of the brain, spinal cord, cranial and peripheral nerves. The more limited symptomatology of disorders of these structures, which in this work has been called sensori-motor neurology, has been expanded in two directions--in one by the increase in our knowledge of the historically oldest portion of the nervous system, namely, the sympathetic and autonomic (vegetative) nervous system and in the other by the increase in our knowledge of the mechanisms that operate at the psychic or mental levels. For practical purposes and for the reasons stated the work has therefore been divided into three parts dealing respectively with the vegetative, the sensori-motor, and the psychic levels, the reactions in all of which come to pass through the medium of the nervous system. Man is not only a metabolic apparatus, accurately adjusted to a marvelous efficiency through the intricacies of the vegetative neurological mechanisms, nor do his sensori-motor functions make him solely a feeling, moving animal, seeking pleasure and avoiding pain, conquering time and space by the enhancement of his sensory possibilities and the magnification of his motor powers; nor yet is he exclusively a psychical machine, which by means of a masterly symbolic handling of the vast horde of realities about him has given him almost unlimited powers. He is all three, and a neurology of today that fails to interpret nervous disturbances in terms of all three of these levels, takes too narrow a view of the function of that master spirit in evolution, the nervous system. For these reasons the treatise has been called primarily a work on the diseases of the nervous system rather than two books, one on neurology and one on psychiatry, which would perpetuate a distinction which the authors believe to be wholly artificial"--Preface.
