Neurosurgery is a rapidly developing and technically demanding branch of surgery that requires a detailed knowledge of the basic neuro-sciences and a thorough clinical approach. The Oxford Textbook of Neurological Surgery is an up-to-date, objective and readable text that covers the full scope of neurosurgical practice. It is part of the Oxford Textbooks in Surgery series, edited by Professor Sir Peter Morris.

The book is split into 20 overarching sections (Principles of Neurosurgery, Neuro-oncology of Intrinsic Tumours; Extra-axial Tumours and Skull Lesions; Cerebro-Pontine Angle Tumours; Sellar and Supra-Sellar Tumours; Posterior Fossa Tumours; Pineal tumours; Uncommon Tumours and Tumour Syndromes; Neurotrauma and Intensive Care; Vascular Neurosurgery; Principles of Spinal Surgery; Spinal Pathology; Spinal Trauma; Peripheral Nerve Surgery; Functional Neurosurgery; Epilepsy; Paediatric Neurosurgery; Neurosurgery for Cerebrospinal Fluid Disorders and Neurosurgical Infection).

Each section takes a dual approach with, ‘Generic Surgical Management’ chapters that focus on specific clinical problems facing the neurosurgeon (e.g. sellar/supra-sellar tumour, Intradural Spina Tumours etc.) and ‘Pathology-Specific’ chapters (e.g. Glioma, Meningeal Tumours, Scoliosis and Spinal Deformity, Aneurysm etc.). Where appropriate, this division provides the reader with easily accessible information for both clinical problems which present in a regional fashion and specific pathologies. The generic chapters cover aspects such as operative approaches, neuroanatomy and nuances.

Specifically each chapter in the book incorporates several strands. Firstly the fundamental neuroscience (anatomy, pathology, genetics etc.) that underlies the clinical practice. Secondly, a review of the requisite clinical investigations (e.g. angiography, electrodiagnostics, radiology). Thirdly, a thorough evidence based review of clinical practice. Following this a consideration of the key debates and controversies in the field with ‘pro-‘ and ‘con-‘ sections (e.g. minimally invasive spine surgery, microsurgical treatment of aneurysms) is provided. A summary of the key papers and clinical scales relevant to neurosurgery form the concluding part.

The book is a ‘one-stop’ text for trainees and consultants in neurosurgery, residents, those preparing for sub-specialty exams and other professionals allied to surgery who need to gain an understanding of the field. It acts as both a point of reference to provide a focussed refresher for the experienced neurosurgeon as well as a trusted training resource.

Part of the Neurosurgery by Example series, this volume on spinal neurosurgery presents exemplary cases in which renowned authors guide readers through the assessment and planning, decision making, surgical procedure, after care, and complication management of common and uncommon disorders. The cases explore the spectrum of clinical diversity and complexity within spinal neurosurgery, including occipital cervical dislocation, cervical myelopathy, thoracic cord compression, lumbar stenosis, and more.

Each chapter also contains ‘pivot points’ that illuminate changes required to manage patients in alternate or atypical situations, and pearls for accurate diagnosis, successful treatment, and effective complication management. Containing a focused review of medical evidence and expected outcomes, Spinal Neurosurgery is appropriate for neurosurgeons who wish to learn more about a subspecialty, and those preparing for the American Board of Neurological Surgery oral examination.

Advance Praise for Spinal Neurosurgery

“I congratulate Drs. Harrop and Maulucci for this well done book that utilizes a unique and very effective format to cover the gamut of spine surgery and spine care topics. The book is well organized, lavishly illustrated with numerous figures and images, and includes oral board review pearls that are of particular value for those studying for their neurosurgery board examinations.”
— Edward Benzel, MD, Emeritus Chair of Neurosurgery, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH

“Through this extensive collection of various spine related clinical scenarios, the reader is able to learn very pertinent management principles and pearls. This book is particularly useful for those who are preparing for the oral boards, but also serves as excellent reading material for neurosurgeons and orthopedic spine surgeons at any stage in their career.”
— Charles Sansur, MD, Associate Professor of Neurosurgery, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD

“Drs. Harrop and Maulucci have assembled an excellent compendium of cases/pathologies. The “Case-based” approach of this text lends itself to an easy readability as well as a compartmentalization of the reading for busy practitioners. This book is extremely useful to practitioners at all stages in their career, as it covers both basic and controversial information for each topic, and may be particularly useful for those surgeons reviewing for their oral board examination.”
— Michael Y. Wang, MD, FACS, Professor of Neurological Surgery and Rehab, Medicine Spine Fellowship Director, Chief of Neurosurgery, University of Miami Hospital and Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL

The Oxford Handbook of EEG Frequency (Oxford Library of Psychology)

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Oxford Handbook of EEG Frequency (Oxford Library of Psychology)
Nov 162022
 

The use of electroencephalography (EEG) to study the human mind has seen tremendous growth across a vast array of disciplines due to increased ease of use and affordability of the technology. Typically, researchers study how the magnitude of the waves changes over time or how the rhythm (frequency) of the waves changes over time.

The Oxford Handbook of EEG Frequency is arguably the first book to comprehensively describe the ways to study how the frequency of the waves changes over time and how changes in frequency are linked to cognitive, affective, and motor processes.

Consisting of 23 chapters written by leading authorities in the field, the book is separated into three sections, with the first focusing on the basics of EEG frequency research, linking frequency analyses to core components of EEG research with event-related potential (ERP) components and local field potentials (LFPs) in non-human animals. The second section looks at specific EEG frequency components that are commonly studied using traditional frequency bands of activity to study specific
psychological processes. Finally, the third section explores EEG frequency analyses in special populations and altered states. Each chapter provides a diverse perspective on the topic, giving readers the opportunity to learn about a vast array of methods to conduct EEG frequency analyses, from
‘traditional’ to cutting-edge techniques, providing a comprehensive and in-depth overview of electroencephalography (EEG).
