Just One More Question Book Excerpt:

An eye-opening, gripping and moving account of dealing with some of medicine's most complicated challenges As a trainee doctor, fascinated by the ways the brain and nervous system signal problems with the body's wiring, Niall Tubridy fell in love with neurology. This was high stakes detective work where answers could be life-changing. The young doctor who relished the intellectual puzzle soon became even more intrigued by the human stories behind each set of symptoms. And he found his own character tested. How do you handle such high pressure work - often with sad outcomes for patients - and remain grounded and positive? Can you? Just One More Question is the story of Niall Tubridy's life in neurology. It includes gripping accounts of his patients - encounters that are, by turn, moving, dramatic and funny - and using simple and illuminating language he explains well-known conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and motor neurone disease. In addition, he reflects candidly on his life and the reasons he, a doctor's son, went into medicine and what he has learned about himself along the way. With great honesty, he scrutinizes his own actions and reactions so that Just One More Question becomes a brave exploration of the big question - how can I be a better doctor? Dr. Tubridy's book is an extraordinary and revealing insight into the human challenge of working in this most complex area of medicine.

Manual of Screeners for Dementia Book Excerpt:

This book draws on the author’s experience in conducting pragmatic test accuracy studies on screening instruments for dementia/mild cognitive impairment. To facilitate comprehension and assimilation, all data is presented in an easily accessible, succinct and user-friendly way by means of a structured tabular format that allows tests to be easily compared. The pragmatic design of studies ensures high external validity and generalizability for the test results. The book includes a wealth of data on previously presented studies, as well as hitherto unreported test measures (“Number needed” metrics). It presents recently described and new diagnostic metrics (Likelihood to be diagnosed or misdiagnosed; Summary utility index; Number needed for screening utility); data from new studies on screeners (Attended with sign; Free-Cog; Two question depression screener; Jenkins Sleep Questionnaire; Triple test); and previously unpublished data (combination of SMC Likert and MACE; IADL Scale and MMSE). Given its scope, the book will be of interest to all professionals, beginners and seasoned experts alike, whose work involves the assessment of individuals with cognitive (memory) complaints.

Transient Global Amnesia Book Excerpt:

This extensively revised second edition provides a comprehensive overview of transient global amnesia (TGA). First, it deals with the history of TGA before moving on to clinical and diagnostic features and differential diagnosis. Subsequent chapters then discuss the investigation and predisposing and precipitating factors for TGA before attempting to synthesise these many strands in order to formulate ideas about the pathogenesis of TGA. Each of the chapters is devoted to a practical and structured overview of the particular topic, with use of case studies to illustrate the material. Based in part on the author’s experience of TGA cases over 20 years and in part on a review of the published literature, this book will hopefully enlighten clinicians from a broad range of medical backgrounds on the clinical features, investigation, and pathogenesis of TGA. Transient Global Amnesia is aimed at any clinician with an interest in, or who encounters patients with, acute amnesia: neurologists, general physicians, old age psychiatrists, geriatricians, clinical neuropsychologists, and primary care physicians, as well as other professions allied to medicine with similar interests, such as members of memory assessment teams.

Reader s Block Book Excerpt:

What does the term "reading" mean? Matthew Rubery's exploration of the influence neurodivergence has on the ways individuals read asks us to consider that there may be no one definition. This alternative history of reading tells the stories of "atypical" readers and the impact had on their lives by neurological conditions affecting their ability to make sense of the printed word: from dyslexia, hyperlexia, and alexia to synesthesia, hallucinations, and dementia. Rubery's focus on neurodiversity aims to transform our understanding of the very concept of reading. Drawing on personal testimonies gathered from literature, film, life writing, social media, medical case studies, and other sources to express how cognitive differences have shaped people's experiences both on and off the page, Rubery contends that there is no single activity known as reading. Instead, there are multiple ways of reading (and, for that matter, not reading) despite the ease with which we use the term. Pushing us to rethink what it means to read, Reader's Block moves toward an understanding of reading as a spectrum that is capacious enough to accommodate the full range of activities documented in this fascinating and highly original book. Read it from cover to cover, out of sequence, or piecemeal. Read it upside down, sideways, or in a mirror. For just as there is no right way to read, there is no right way to read this book. What matters is that you are doing something with it—something that Rubery proposes should be called "reading."

When Breath Becomes Air Book Excerpt:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • PULITZER PRIZE FINALIST • This inspiring, exquisitely observed memoir finds hope and beauty in the face of insurmountable odds as an idealistic young neurosurgeon attempts to answer the question What makes a life worth living? NAMED ONE OF PASTE’S BEST MEMOIRS OF THE DECADE • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • People • NPR • The Washington Post • Slate • Harper’s Bazaar • Time Out New York • Publishers Weekly • BookPage Finalist for the PEN Center USA Literary Award in Creative Nonfiction and the Books for a Better Life Award in Inspirational Memoir At the age of thirty-six, on the verge of completing a decade’s worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, and the next he was a patient struggling to live. And just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated. When Breath Becomes Air chronicles Kalanithi’s transformation from a naïve medical student “possessed,” as he wrote, “by the question of what, given that all organisms die, makes a virtuous and meaningful life” into a neurosurgeon at Stanford working in the brain, the most critical place for human identity, and finally into a patient and new father confronting his own mortality. What makes life worth living in the face of death? What do you do when the future, no longer a ladder toward your goals in life, flattens out into a perpetual present? What does it mean to have a child, to nurture a new life as another fades away? These are some of the questions Kalanithi wrestles with in this profoundly moving, exquisitely observed memoir. Paul Kalanithi died in March 2015, while working on this book, yet his words live on as a guide and a gift to us all. “I began to realize that coming face to face with my own mortality, in a sense, had changed nothing and everything,” he wrote. “Seven words from Samuel Beckett began to repeat in my head: ‘I can’t go on. I’ll go on.’” When Breath Becomes Air is an unforgettable, life-affirming reflection on the challenge of facing death and on the relationship between doctor and patient, from a brilliant writer who became both.

Neurocinema The Sequel Book Excerpt:

The history of neurology as seen through the lens of the filmmaker is fascinating and extraordinary. Neurocinema-The Sequel is a review of the history of neurology as seen in film, starting with the early days of cinema and concluding with contemporary films now available in theaters and on streaming sites. The major themes of this book encompass how neurology has been represented in the history of cinema and how neurologic topics emerged and then disappeared, with some staging a comeback in more recent films. 180 films are assessed and rated, and many of these are exemplary depictions of neurological disorders. The author examines whether film, from a neurologic perspective, can provide insight and even debate. Each of the films discussed in this book demands serious attention by those who see and manage neurologic patients and support their families. Neurocinema - The Sequel chronicles this archive of neurologic representation, drawing readers in a rich collection of cinematic wonders of permanent cultural and historical value.

Handbook of Autobiography Autofiction Book Excerpt:

Autobiographical writings have been a major cultural genre from antiquity to the present time. General questions of the literary as, e.g., the relation between literature and reality, truth and fiction, the dependency of author, narrator, and figure, or issues of individual and cultural styles etc., can be studied preeminently in the autobiographical genre. Yet, the tradition of life-writing has, in the course of literary history, developed manifold types and forms. Especially in the globalized age, where the media and other technological / cultural factors contribute to a rapid transformation of lifestyles, autobiographical writing has maintained, even enhanced, its popularity and importance. By conceiving autobiography in a wide sense that includes memoirs, diaries, self-portraits and autofiction as well as media transformations of the genre, this three-volume handbook offers a comprehensive survey of theoretical approaches, systematic aspects, and historical developments in an international and interdisciplinary perspective. While autobiography is usually considered to be a European tradition, special emphasis is placed on the modes of self-representation in non-Western cultures and on inter- and transcultural perspectives of the genre. The individual contributions are closely interconnected by a system of cross-references. The handbook addresses scholars of cultural and literary studies, students as well as non-academic readers.

To many readers, the word may come across as a cold, aloof and lossy, unsettling word. Some people hesitate to even say the word. That the angel of death can be called Azrael. After meeting with our publishing house editor for a long time, we had planned to write a series of books on different subjects that would clear up the confusion. Although I had been thinking about writing a book about death for quite some time, putting it first was unexpected. In general, I did not think of such an order, since all narratives are treated linearly as birth-life and last-death. It suddenly occurred to me that it was more important to put aside the order of books and write about death. I guessed that you have more extensive knowledge to write about this subject and that it will attract more attention unlike other books I will prepare. However, how much a book with death on it will sell is another matter of discussion. In addition to interest, it seemed to me as an important justification that it could be at the top of an urgent need list. Because in this country, thousands of people die every day and their relatives witness their deaths. Many chronic and severe patients are also waiting for their death and their relatives are waiting with them. Or we may come face to face with unexpected sudden deaths. At that time, death was prepared as a pre-writable book on the subject, as the first book in the series. Death is an emergency for mortals and dying! Even in a world of death, nothing is as serious and remarkable as death. Since the ultimate victory is death, it is necessary to give priority to understanding it. When was man's first thought about death? This is difficult to know, but a look at the long history of evolution yields some clues. H. neanderthalensis, one of our relatives in the evolutionary family tree It emerged in the world 350 thousand years ago and their existence continued until 30 thousand years ago. Despite their brains being considerably larger than we are now, evolution – this data confirms once again the importance of function, not size – of organs, these hominids, unable to survive and make technical progress, seem to think as if they were thinking about death. Perhaps because they were ice age people, life was difficult for them and they died at an average of 40. Although they had big brains, they did not have the clothes they had developed to protect them from the cold. Although it has been suggested that Neanderthals buried their dead with religious rituals and floral ornaments, it has been suggested that the data found later cannot be interpreted so precisely, that the flower pollen found may have been carried there by the wind or that it may have come from the boots of the workers working in the excavation. Whatever the story here, in the event that a thinking human's hunting friend dies while hunting, or his wife, with whom he has made love and had a child, suddenly dies, it is likely that in his moonlit caverns by the waters, “where did the living, running and hunting person go?” His questioning was by looking at the stars. Because only yesterday she was out there hunting with him and looking after his children. What had happened to him then that he could not move, speak or react. Therefore, the perception of death is not new to the evolutionary scene. It is very likely that it emerged when hominids began to pretend to be someone else, to see their own reflection in the water or to remember their dreams. But “when exactly?” There is no one you can answer a question like. In the later periods, when socialization increased with living in groups, death began to pass into both mythologies and written documents as a part of life. We begin to see the first written documents about death in the Egyptian society that lived on the banks of the Nile 3500 years ago, and then it became a subject in different ways in Sumer, Assyria, Hittite and all other societies. On the other hand, the concept of death and after death creates an inseparable unity of questions and question marks seem to lie back to back. Where death is mentioned, the discussion of an afterlife, which starts with death and giving life, is also going on. With the emergence of monotheistic religions, death and afterlife became one of the most important parts of theology for a long time, since the afterlife became the promised life. With the birth of not only theology but philosophy, it became one of the longest and most important topics of discussion. Although it was suggested by some philosophers that it would not be the subject of philosophy "because it does not belong to life", it has become one of the important and even essential topics of philosophy arising from the mind-brain, soul-body discussions. For centuries, the mind-brain and soul-body debates continued and still do. Although the main question philosophy seeks to answer is how the mind-brain connection is achieved, whether there is a mind separate from the material flesh and brain, after all, if there is a structure that exists apart from the material body (whatever its name is mind, consciousness or spirit), what will happen with death? comes after. Life after death has been an area of interest not only for religions but also for spiritualism, and this interest has led to the birth of modern parapsychology. Although this trend, which started in the West in the 1800s, began to reach its consistency in the late 1950s in our country, the concept of the afterlife and death remained the main area of interest of spiritualism. The answer they were looking for – what kind of continuity is there in the afterlife – has provided a more moderate approach to the subject of death for the limited number of people who are interested in the subject, although they do not directly examine what death is. Many professionals have emerged who are committed to learning from the spirits of the psychic dead and understanding the order of the other side. Among them, there were people who were educated in scientific knowledge schools and even received the Nobel Prize. The experiences at the moment of death and the extraordinary events that took place during the deaths were recorded. It was tried to be put together in a frame and mold. For a long time, death was ignored by western philosophers and it was not considered and systematically examined, considering it a subjective situation close to metaphysics. Even the famous Wittgenstein claimed in his Tractus that "death is not an event of life" and that it cannot be talked about meaningfully. For example, Spinoza says in his Ethics that “the free person does not think about death, he contemplates on life”. This saying is also an escape. On the other hand, for some, death is the real muse of philosophy and they mostly focused on concepts such as death anxiety, what death is and how people learn about death. Conversely, August Comte said that "if there is only one philosophical truth, it is death". Socrates accepted philosophy as "preparation for death". According to him, philosophy would not be easily possible without death. Voltaire, on the other hand, says that we do not know what eternal life is, while present life is a terrible joke. He points out that the human species is the only species that is aware of death and knows that it will die when the day comes. Tirasaymakos, on the other hand, makes a remarkable emphasis in Philalethes' speech: "If my individuality does not continue, I will not even give metallicity to what you mumble about as immortality." He is right, but in today's sense, individuality means our personality, our memory of experience and our awareness of ourselves. The other world, where this does not exist, must not be very desirable. More recently, the issue of death has become an area of interest in medicine, due to the development of organ transplants and the demand for organ harvesting from deceased people. Because organs could be taken from people who died, not from living people, and what exactly death meant had to be defined for physicians. For this purpose, "brain death diagnostic criteria" were started to be developed by neurologists in the not too distant 1970s. Although these criteria have changed over time, the concept of "brain death" as a general pattern has settled in medicine and has been accepted as the legal definition of death. The diagnosis of “brain death” meant death medically and legally, and the same nomenclature is still valid today, except for some minor details. Again, developing health technologies, improving the storage conditions of tissues taken from humans, and after many animal experiments, "Can we freeze humans and keep them in order to wake them up again in the future?" approaches emerged. The same question was asked whether it could be done by putting astronauts or passengers to sleep with some kind of deep cooling during sending humans to Mars or distant planets. In this case, the freezing process, which was applied, required a definition of death, as it required a starting point. On the other hand, people paid money to wake up after death by freezing himself (whole body or just the head) in the hope of being cured sometime in the future. Body ice cream companies were established in different parts of the world. It required a reconsideration of the concept of death—when it started—as it had to be applied legally as soon as the diagnosis of death was made. Parapsychologists were interested in near-death experiences, but for the last ten years, physicians working in hospitals have also started to take part in research topics. Discussions began to be published in scientific journals on the subject about why near-death experiences could occur and what could happen in the brain neurologically, physiologically and chemically at that time. In other words, death and near-death experiences can also be revealed and researched with the scientific method. In this way, we have come to understand better a concept called "clinical death", which has been emphasized. We have added “clinical death” to the concept of “brain death”. Spiritualism, continue to be a subject of interest and discussion today as it was in the past. Aside from saying "I used to be this, you are not my parents" when children are 3-4 years old, self-helpers and regression healers have come to the point of giving people one or more past lives as gifts. The immortality implied by the rebirth cases and the state of being reincarnated in the world after death continue to be an important belief issue both in our country and in the world even today. It is a matter of both belief and debate among people at all levels of education. More recently, recordings of cerebral blood flow and brain waves (EEG) of deceased persons at the time of death were made and these were published and presented to other scientists for their opinions. However, physical and physiological examination of deceased persons at the time of death is a very rare situation in science, and the first experiments were carried out almost a hundred years ago. It was reported in the newspapers that 21 grams were lost from the body with death. Even if the film was made in the intervening time, the scientific confirmations did not give the same result. But when the movie was released, the 21 grams issue occupied the minds and asked, “Is the soul only 21 grams? Oh, does it only weigh as much as a piece of chocolate?” had been asked. Since quantum physics pervades our daily lives, its implications have made us rethink the issue of "death and extinction" - I haven't observed the same thing for quantum physicists at universities dealing with solid matter. A hundred years ago, everything was a particle. Then it was introduced into our minds that there were no particles but only concentrations of energy. Today, however, we understand that neither particles nor energy concentrations. Everything that makes up matter is actually information and temporary existences in the universal quantum field or wave function! At that time, our structure is not a decaying, depleted matter, but a structure that has continuity according to quantum physics, but only transitions from state to state. “In this case, what would be the meaning of bodily or cerebral death?” The question was asked and comments were written and drawn by opening the curtain on life after death. Therefore, the meaning of the word death began to be perceived and felt differently. Today, the issue of death is one of the most important issues in the minds of modern people, whether they live in the village or in the city. However, it is discussed in the secret subconscious but in open conscious conversations. Although most people do not talk about the subject, you must have had a mandatory recollection of death, either at night or during the death of their relatives, or during the burial. You have probably asked yourself one or more of the questions you will see in the chapter titles of our book, not just remembering. You've probably just asked yourself and silently. Unbeknownst to anyone... Even while thinking about death in your mind, you must have thought quietly so that death would stay away... In this book, we will begin to find answers to questions about death in the minds of readers, and perhaps even unintentionally to create new questions. We can cause some people to reconsider the truths they believe in. Our main aim is to consider and discuss death by considering more scientific information today, without ever addressing the theological concept of death and the afterlife. The question of why theological debates do not exist in this book is a separate issue and is of interest to theologians. In this land where tradition and religion are almost inextricably intertwined – thankfully, many academic theologians in our universities can make this distinction very well from the perspective of the Qur'an – it would be best not to discuss religion and death, the afterlife. For example, a subject such as the promise of Paradise for Abraham is not covered in detail in the book. Another issue is what a neurologist, who is the author of this book, can have to do with death. Neurology is a field of medicine dealing with brain and spinal cord diseases. After all, I am one of the mortals. On the other hand, neurologists are one of the specialties that diagnose medical death and brain death. Neurologists are the first to give consent for organ transplantation when the diagnosis of brain death is made. Neurology is one of the specialties with the highest number of deaths and deaths in hospitals. Apart from that, near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences and some other abnormal death-related phenomena are related to the nervous system and brain. Perhaps most importantly, neurologists, who are scientists, deal with the concepts of consciousness, memory and personality. All of these things somehow originate in the brain, and what happens to them when the brain dies are a question on the neurologist's mind. For this reason, the neurologist, who is a physician and scientist, does not ask (or even can) ask where the soul goes when he dies, he asks whether consciousness-memory-personality continues. The question to ask is: do we die when we die? And proving that our existence continues after death means revealing the most important secret for us. After all, you are mortal as a living being that comes to life! When we are born and even from the mother's womb, there is a seal on our butt: "mortal". Since we are created, and in other words, we are not creators, we will "die". According to the Islamic religious belief, we will be laid alone on the musalla stone, we will be buried under the ground alone. Even further, our universe will face death at some future time. A very dark and incredibly cold universal death! Other Realm Research Periods It is possible to divide the researches on the other world into four time periods. These periods can be grouped as 1880-1930, 1930-1960, 1960-1990 and 1990 to present. It is the first period between 1830-1930. It is the period of collecting, classifying and analyzing the "spontaneous" experiences of people who have seen the ghosts of dead people. The accumulation of knowledge that started with psychics also coincides with this period. As the 1930s approached, many case examples were accumulated and concepts such as extrasensory perception and super psi were written. Although parapsychology resorted to experimental methods between 1930 and 1960, many parapsychologists did not engage in much research and experimentation on the afterlife. It can be said that they even neglected such a topic. While this period in the West was the period of experimental parapsychology, in our country, the spiritism movement that was about to end in the West, Dr. It is the period when it started to grow with Bedri Ruhselman. In the next period, Dr. Ruhselman sifted his flour on spiritism and hung his sieve. He had left behind enough knowledge. Between 1960 and 1990, methods were developed to prevent telepathy from their living relatives in an effort to gather information from beyond death. Information was collected by these methods. Death has become the subject of science. Especially with the start of organ transplants, definitions of what death is and the concept of brain death began to be made. Although science was not interested in the afterlife, parapsychologists continued to gather information. Between 1985 and 1995, many people were trained and emerged in the field of parapsychology in our country. New associations were formed and many publishers emerged. Since the 1995s, the otherworld has continued to be the subject of philosophy and other research fields, if not more positively, of science. In addition to the positive discussions, quantum physics was also included in the event. Personal developments also did not stay away from the event and made all efforts to send people to the beyond. The concept of the afterlife is still one of the taboos for science. Well, memories can persist "somewhere else" that persists after physical death. Because looking at some case reports, some reported incidents should not exist if the materialism is true. Darwin's theory of evolution cast doubt on the belief that man has a soul. Despite this, Alfred R. Wallace, one of the founding fathers of the theory of evolution, was an ardent spiritualist and never deviated from his belief that human beings would exist after death. Yet Darwin had encircled the throne on which the soul sat and brought it down. But we know that the belief or idea that something resembling this life will continue forever and untimely in the afterlife continues to bother some. Questions, questions and questions… Are you ready to ask aloud questions about death, talk and discuss scientific information? Surprise and bewilderment are the most important stimulant sources that enable learning. In your warm brain inside your heads, I'm sure you have many questions and you don't have the answers: What is the death that these people and I will experience? Do I really die when I die? Or is something going on? Is it possible to remain? Is there such a thing as “I think therefore I am” outside of our body? Will my personality and memory remain the same after death? When death knocks on the door, does everyone have to open it, or do some return from that door? Does a person die because he is sick or because he is alive? Is disembodied awareness possible? Is there an experience without a brain? Does the experience continue after death? If it continues, is it a continuation of our personality before we die? In the next world, will we be able to wake up here as we wake up every morning? Believing in the afterlife means affirming eternal life, but if time has an end, how will it be? Will we feel alive when our organic body is destroyed? Do we change space with death, or does our consciousness change environment or state? Did we sanctify the afterlife because absence is not a bearable feeling? Are near-death or near-death experiences real? Are people who claim to be born again lying or are they mentally ill? Soulless immortals, are vampires real? Are there ghosts that cause spirits to cause confusion in this world? Is the life after death only virtual, like walking in one's own mind, or is it an objective life? Will we remember our memories before we die? Will it be a private world or a public and open world to all? Will everyone have their own dream? Is it beyond the knowledge of positive science that works with the senses? Can science claim that there is no continuity after death? Is burning in hell more acceptable than non-existence? Is it death that really scares people, or is it the possibility of our existence being completely lost? Where is the other world as space? If the existence of the other world is confirmed, will it be necessary to change the marriage vows to forever, not "until death do us part"? If we get conclusive evidence that psychics connect with the souls of the deceased on the other side, wouldn't we have to develop a new law on the legal rights of the deceased on this side? On the other hand, if the famous scientists who died are not going to stay in the other world and they pursue discovery and invention there, how will the patent right be provided? When the certainty of life after death is revealed, how will we respond to people who intend to commit suicide and who want death (euthanasia) in incurable illness, and what will be its place in law? Again, when psychiatric patients come to psychologists and psychiatrists, how many souls will they bring with them? How will the visit fee be determined in this case and from whom will it be requested? There are also questions about the desire for immortality and the psychology of death. What psychology enters someone who learns that you have a deadly disease and that you have a number of days left, and what stages does he go through emotionally? Is the sadness that we mourn after the death normal? How long does it take, how long does it take to become a diseased condition? Even if I cannot become immortal one day, if I keep the genetic codes of my brain unchanged, can I be brought back to life hundreds of years from now? If I want to freeze my brain or body in time so that it does not change, is the price different? The "death " words and questions that I write a lot, I recommend you to read this book again. Because from the beginning of the topic until the time you read it – except you – 100 people died in the world and 1 person in Turkey! Although the world population is constantly increasing and cities are more crowded, this does not mean that there are no deaths. The numbers are only increasing because the birth rate is higher than the death rate. Cities are growing. In the next 100 years, the current world population of 7,215,731,300 people will die. With the open number, these seven billion two hundred and fifteen thousand imperfect people will be included in this number as the author of this book and you as the reader. But we're going to die somehow from heart disease, but from cancer, but from a stroke in the brain or some other disease. One end of the storyboard is birth, the other end is death… Are you ready to watch the end of the movie?

What You Must Know about Strokes Book Excerpt:

No one is ever prepared for a stroke. It just happens, and when it does, the results can be life altering. From difficulties with communication to weakness, numbness, and cognitive difficulties, a stroke can have a wide range of consequences. For most people affected by a stroke, a flood of questions come afterward: How did this happen? What do we do next? What are our options? How long will recovery take? Am I at risk for another stroke? To answer these questions and so many others, stroke specialist Dr. Amytis Towfighi and best-selling health writer and stroke survivor Laura Stevens have written What You Must Know About Strokes. Written in plain English, this useful guide offers all the information stroke survivors and their loved ones need to know in order to ask the right questions and make informed decisions. The book is divided into four parts. Part 1 explains what a stroke is and which risk factors increase the odds of having a stroke. It also includes information on identifying the early signs of a stroke and what to do when they appear. Part 2 looks at the immediate care given to stroke survivors as they are brought into a hospital setting. Part 3 details the most common rehabilitation treatments given to stroke patients to help them regain their ability to carry out their daily activities, mobility, speech, and cognition. These include occupational, physical, and speech therapies. It also discusses a number of complementary and alternative treatments that may be helpful. Part 4 offers important suggestions on lifestyle and nutrition to help patients avoid another stroke. Part 5 provides a look at life after a stroke and the issues stroke survivors may face. It offers practical and easy-to-follow advice on moving forward. The book also offers a section of resources, listing services and agencies that provide answers and assistance to stroke patients and their families. The many challenges of dealing with a stroke are great--for patients as well as their loved ones. The road back is not always easy. Understanding what is happening and what treatment options are available is crucial. The information contained in this book can greatly benefit anyone dealing with the aftermath of a stroke and make all the difference in the world.

Invisible Faces and Hidden Stories Book Excerpt:

Dealing with narratives of vulnerable populations, this book looks at how they deal with dimensions of their social life, especially in regard to health. It reflects the socio-political ecologies like public hostility and stereotyping, neglect of their unique health needs, their courage to overcome adversity, and the love of family and healthcare providers in mitigating their problems. The narratives inform us about the dissimilarity between the way we speak, what we hear and how we act. American society likes to give the impression that it is listening to the plight of vulnerable populations, but the stories in this volume prove otherwise.

Australian Patriography Book Excerpt:

The Son’s Book of the Father, as Richard Freadman termed it, is a rich field of relational autobiography, offering a unique set of tensions and insights into modes of masculinity, notions of identity and the ethics of representing another’s life in writing one’s own. This study of modern Australian life writing by sons who focus on fathers places an emerging sub-genre within its literary ancestry and its contemporary milieu. Providing compelling readings of Raimond Gaita’s ‘Romulus, My Father’, Peter Rose’s ‘Rose Boys’ and many others, this is the first study of its kind within Australian literature.

Pediatric Neurology Book Excerpt:

The child is neither an adult miniature nor an immature human being: at each age, it expresses specific abilities that optimize adaptation to its environment and development of new acquisitions. Diseases in children cover all specialties encountered in adulthood, and neurology involves a particularly large area, ranging from the brain to the striated muscle, the generation and functioning of which require half the genes of the whole genome and a majority of mitochondrial ones. Human being nervous system is sensitive to prenatal aggression, is particularly immature at birth and development may be affected by a whole range of age-dependent disorders distinct from those that occur in adults. Even diseases more often encountered in adulthood than childhood may have specific expression in the developing nervous system. The course of chronic neurological diseases beginning before adolescence remains distinct from that of adult pathology – not only from the cognitive but also motor perspective, right into adulthood, and a whole area is developing for adult neurologists to care for these children with persisting neurological diseases when they become adults. Just as pediatric neurology evolved as an identified specialty as the volume and complexity of data became too much for the general pediatician or the adult neurologist to master, the discipline has now continued to evolve into so many subspecialties, such as epilepsy, neuromuscular disease, stroke, malformations, neonatal neurology, metabolic diseases, etc., that the general pediatric neurologist no longer can reasonably possess in-depth expertise in all areas, particularly in dealing with complex cases. Subspecialty expertise thus is provided to some trainees through fellowship programmes following a general pediatric neurology residency and many of these fellowships include training in research. Since the infectious context, the genetic background and medical practice vary throughout the world, this diversity needs to be represented in a pediatric neurology textbook. Taken together, and although brain malformations (H. Sarnat & P. Curatolo, 2007) and oncology (W. Grisold & R. Soffietti) are covered in detail in other volumes of the same series and therefore only briefly addressed here, these considerations justify the number of volumes, and the number of authors who contributed from all over the world. Experts in the different subspecialties also contributed to design the general framework and contents of the book. Special emphasis is given to the developmental aspect, and normal development is reminded whenever needed – brain, muscle and the immune system. The course of chronic diseases into adulthood and ethical issues specific to the developing nervous system are also addressed. A volume in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology series, which has an unparalleled reputation as the world's most comprehensive source of information in neurology International list of contributors including the leading workers in the field Describes the advances which have occurred in clinical neurology and the neurosciences, their impact on the understanding of neurological disorders and on patient care

The Neurology of Consciousness Book Excerpt:

Understanding consciousness is the major unsolved problem in biology. One increasingly important method of studying consciousness is to study disorders of consciousness, e.g. brain damage and disease states leading to vegetative states, coma, minimally conscious states, etc. Many of these studies are very much in the public eye because of their relationship to controversies about coma patients (e.g. Terry Schiavo case in the US recently), and the relationship to one of the major philosophical, sociological, political, and religious questions of humankind. This is the first book to summarize our current understanding of the neuroanatomical and functional underpinnings of human consciousness by emphasizing a lesional approach offered via the study of neurological patients. The selected contributors are all outstanding authors and undisputed leaders in their field. New chapters on the neuroanatomical basis of consciousness, functional intrinsic brain activity, anesthesia, as well as expanded coverage of the unresponsive wakefulness syndrome/ vegetative state and the minimally conscious state The first comprehensive, authoritative collection to describe disorders of consciousness and how they are used to study and understand the neural correlates of conscious perception in humans Includes revised and new chapters from the top international researchers in the field

The Freudians Book Excerpt:

Every country unconsciously creates the psychoanalysis it needs, says Edith Kurzweil. Freudians everywhere, even the most orthodox, are influenced by national traditions, interests, beliefs, and institutions. In this original and stimulating book, Kurzweil traces the ways in which psychoanalysis has evolved in Austria, England, France, Germany, and the United States. The author explains how psychoanalysis took root in each country, outlines the history of various psychoanalytic institutes, and describes how Freudian doctrine has been transmuted by aesthetic values, behavioral mores, and political traditions of different cultures. The Germans, for example, took Austrian humanism and made it "scientific." The British developed object relations. French psychoanalysts emphasized linguistics and structuralism and developed an abiding fascination with text, language, subtext, and plot structures. In her new introduction, Kurzweil reexamines her argument that countries develop their own psychoanalysis according to their needs. She describes evidence supporting her theories and why they continue to hold true today. She also discusses what led her to write this book initially. The Freudians is a major work in confirming the importance of psychoanalytic thought across national and cultural boundaries.
