Brand: Brand: Demos Medical Publishing
Now, for the first time, practitioners have access to a huge database of normal values, developed using the most modern scientific protocols, for virtually any patient population! Normal ranges take into account age, sex, height and body mass index for a wide range of demographic groups to provide a complete set of reliable values for everyday clinical practice. For each nerve fiber, the author provides the nerve root level, the peripheral nerve level, and the plexus pathway. In addition, for the most common studies performed, normal ranges are provided for onset latency, amplitude, area, duration of the wave, and nerve conduction velocity across various segments.
Other benefits of this outstanding book:
- Provides helpful hints for performing each study
- Covers the latest, most up-to-date techniques for conducting nerve sensory tests
- Codifies the acceptable differences in latency, amplitude, nerve conduction velocity, etc. between nerves of the same or opposite limbs, allowing for a more precise diagnosis
- Provides precise written descriptions as well as schematic depiction of electrode placements
- Includes typical waveform appearance for the most common studies
- Offers a concise list of references and suggested readings for each study
- Includes advantages and pitfalls of alternative techniques
For determining normal reference values for any patient, or for review of a specific nerve conduction technique, this book is unrivaled.

|Natural Therapies for Parkinson's Disease
Lowest new price: $12.27
Lowest used price: $16.52
List price: $25.00
Author: Dr. Laurie Mischley
Conventional management of Parkinson's disease (PD) is limited. The pharmaceutical and surgical options that are available have significant side effects and only correct symptoms for a limited period of time. Even with the best conventional treatment, the disease progresses and becomes severely disabling. No existing conventional therapies that the progress of the disease; available medicines only treat symptoms temporarily. Conventional medicine views the course of the disease as "progressive" and "irreversible." Many patients, who are only partially satisfied with conventional medicine, seek alternative and complementary options in an attempt to slow, stop, or reverse the disease process. This book has several functions: - It is a science-based reference manual. - It is inspiring and empowering to patients. - It is educational for both patients and neurologists. - It is entertaining. - It fosters an understanding between conventional and complementary providers. Chapters on , Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Aluminum, Antioxidants, Beta-carotene, Calorie Restriction, Carnitine, Chelation, Cholesterol, Choline, Coenzyme Q-10, Constipation, Creatine, Curcumin (Turmeric), Dairy, DHA (fish oil), Fava Beans, Glutathione, H. pylori (Helicobacter pylori), Homocysteine, Iron, Manganese, Marijuana (Cannabis sativa), Mucuna pruriens, Velvet bean, Cowhage, Niacin, Tea, Vitamin B6, Vitamin D, and other topics.

|Atlas of Neurosurgical Techniques: Spine and Peripheral Nerves
Lowest new price: $112.32
Lowest used price: $214.59
List price: $399.99
Winner of Association of American Publishers Best Book in Clinical Medicine, 2006 Highly Commended in Surgery by British Medical Association, 2007
Here is complete coverage of state-of-the-art surgical techniques for the spine and peripheral nerves. This atlas engages the full range of approaches -- anterior, antero-lateral, posterior, and postero-lateral -- for operations on peripheral nerves and in every area of the spine.
Each of the seven sections of the atlas opens with in-depth discussion of pathology, etiology and differential diagnosis conveying the underlying scientific principles of diseases and conditions of the spine and peripheral nerves. The authors then present technique-oriented chapters containing step-by-step descriptions of surgical procedures. These chapters delineate the goals, indications, contraindications, anesthesia considerations, positions, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each technique in a concise manner, ideal for the busy practitioner seeking review.
Beautifully illustrated with more than 1,200 images, including 811 full-color drawings, this authoritative text covers all of the critical issues involved in surgeries for the spine and peripheral nerves. It will be an invaluable asset to neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons and residents seeking a carefully edited, didactic atlas.
|Cognition in the Wild (Bradford Books)
Lowest new price: $26.00
Lowest used price: $19.76
List price: $42.00
Author: Edwin Hutchins
Edwin Hutchins combines his background as an anthropologist and an open ocean racing sailor and navigator in this account of how anthropological methods can be combined with cognitive theory to produce a new reading of cognitive science. His theoretical insights are grounded in an extended analysis of ship navigation -- its computational basis, its historical roots, its social organization, and the details of its implementation in actual practice aboard large ships. The result is an unusual interdisciplinary approach to cognition in culturally constituted activities outside the laboratory -- "in the wild."
Hutchins examines a set of phenomena that have fallen in the cracks between the established disciplines of psychology and anthropology, bringing to light a new set of relationships between culture and cognition. The standard view is that culture affects the cognition of individuals. Hutchins argues instead that cultural activity systems have cognitive properties of their own that are different from the cognitive properties of the individuals who participate in them. Each action for bringing a large naval vessel into port, for example, is informed by culture: the navigation team can be seen as a cognitive and computational system.
Introducing Navy life and work on the bridge, Hutchins makes a clear distinction between the cognitive properties of an individual and the cognitive properties of a system. In striking contrast to the usual laboratory tasks of research in cognitive science, he applies the principal metaphor of cognitive science -- cognition as computation (adopting David Marr's paradigm) -- to the navigation task. After comparing modern Western navigation with the method practiced in Micronesia, Hutchins explores the computational and cognitive properties of systems that are larger than an individual. He then turns to an analysis of learning or change in the organization of cognitive systems at several scales. Hutchins's conclusion illustrates the costs of ignoring the cultural nature of cognition, pointing to the ways in which contemporary cognitive science can be transformed by new meanings and interpretations.

|The Organization of Behavior: A Neuropsychological Theory
Lowest new price: $52.10
Lowest used price: $67.29
List price: $57.95
Author: D.O. Hebb
Since its publication in 1949, D.O. Hebb's, The Organization of Behavior has been one of the most influential books in the fields of psychology and neuroscience. However, the original edition has been unavailable since 1966, ensuring that Hebb's comment that a classic normally means "cited but not read" is true in his case. This new edition rectifies a long-standing problem for behavioral neuroscientists--the inability to obtain one of the most cited publications in the field.
The Organization of Behavior played a significant part in stimulating the investigation of the neural foundations of behavior and continues to be inspiring because it provides a general framework for relating behavior to synaptic organization through the dynamics of neural networks.
D.O. Hebb was also the first to examine the mechanisms by which environment and experience can influence brain structure and function, and his ideas formed the basis for work on enriched environments as stimulants for behavioral development.
References to Hebb, the Hebbian cell assembly, the Hebb synapse, and the Hebb rule increase each year. These forceful ideas of 1949 are now applied in engineering, robotics, and computer science, as well as neurophysiology, neuroscience, and psychology--a tribute to Hebb's foresight in developing a foundational neuropsychological theory of the organization of behavior.
