Neurostimulation for the Treatment of Chronic Pain - a volume in the new Interventional and Neuromodulatory Techniques for Pain Management series - presents state-of-the-art guidance on the full range of neuromodulation techniques performed today. Salim Hayek, MD, PhD and Robert Levy, MD, PhD offer expert advice on a variety of spinal cord, peripheral nerve, and peripheral nerve field stimulation procedures to treat chronic pain. Comprehensive, evidence-based coverage on selecting and performing these techniques - as well as weighing relative risks and complications - helps you ensure optimum outcomes. With access to the fully searchable text at www.expertconsult.com, youâll have the detailed visual assistance you need right at your fingertips.
Improve patient safety and minimize risks with evidence-based, step-by-step guidance for interventional and neuromodulatory techniques
This is the first comprehensive text-atlas that shows how to use ultrasound technology and nerve stimulation techniques to guide regional blockade in children. Clinical chapters follow a sequential, highly illustrated format that provides step-by-step guidance and include cases, clinical pearls, and troubleshooting tips. Nearly 400 figures, consisting of ultrasound images, MRI images, and schematics, have been assembled to maximize understanding of pediatric neuroanatomy and its relationship to surrounding anatomical structures. To help the novice user, the book features side-by-side presentation of unlabeled and labeled ultrasound images.
Pediatric Atlas of Ultrasound- and Nerve Stimulation-Guided Regional Anesthesia focuses on common approaches, supplemented in clinical pearls and notes by alternative approaches, and emphasizes dynamic and systematic scanning techniques. It is intended for pediatric anesthesiologists who wish to incorporate regional blockade into their repertoire and designed as a refresher and resource for all regional anesthesiologists seeking to refine their skills.

Michio Kaku, the New York Times bestselling author of Physics of the Impossible and Physics of the Future tackles the most fascinating and complexÂ objectÂ in theÂ known universe:Â the human brain.The Future of the Mind brings a topic that once belonged solely to the province of science fiction into a startling new reality. This scientific tour de force unveils the astonishingÂ research being done inÂ top laboratories around the worldâall based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physicsâincluding recent experiments in telepathy, mind control, avatars, telekinesis, and recording memories and dreams. The Future of the Mind is an extraordinary, mind-boggling exploration of the frontiers of neuroscience. Dr. Kaku looks toward the day when we may achieve the ability to upload the human brain to a computer, neuron for neuron; project thoughts and emotionsÂ around the world on a brain-net; take a âsmart pillâ to enhance cognition; send our consciousness across the universe; and push the very limits of immortality.
The Stimulated Brainâwhich garnered an Honorable Mention for Biomedicine & Neuroscience at the 2015 PROSE Awards from the Association of American Publishersâpresents the first integration of findings on brain stimulation from different research fields with a primary focus on Transcranial Electrical Stimulation (tES), one of the most frequently used noninvasive stimulation methods.
The last decade has witnessed a significant increase in the amount of research exploring how noninvasive brain stimulation can not only modulate but also enhance cognition and brain functions. However, although Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and particularly tES have the potential to become more widely applicable techniques (as they come with none of the risks associated with deep brain stimulation) the reference literature on these neurotechnologies has been sparse.
This resource provides a broad survey of current knowledge, and also marks future directions in cognitive and neuro-enhancement. It expands our understanding of basic research findings from animals and humans, including clear translational benefits for applied research and the therapeutic use of noninvasive brain stimulation methods. The book's coverage includes a primer that paves the way to a more advanced knowledge of tES and its physiological basis; current research findings on cognitive and neuro-enhancement in animals and typical and atypical human populations, such as neurological patients; and discussions of future directions, including specific neuroethical issues and pathways for collaboration and entrepreneurialism.
The Stimulated Brain is the first book to provide a comprehensive understanding of different aspects of noninvasive brain stimulation that are critical for scientists, clinicians, and those who are interested in âstimulating their mindsÂ by exploring this fascinating field of research.
In recent years, a profound revolution in psychotherapy has brought affects to their rightful place.
