Series: Neuroscience Research Progress
BISAC: SCI089000

In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the biological basis, management of symptoms and long-term neurological implications of cognitive dysfunction. Topics discussed in this compilation include the association of cognitive dysfunction with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA); chemotherapy-treated cancer patients who experience chemotherapy-related cognitive impairment during or after treatment sessions; alterations observed in glutamatergic/GABAergic circuitry in the brain in MS or CMS animal models that could be underlying in stress induced cognitive dysfunction; Coffin-Lowry syndrome as an X-linked intellectual disability caused by RSK2 protein kinase deficiency; bioeducational science as an emerging field to diagnose cognitive discomfort and specific learning disorders; and the systemic blockade of Cav2.1 mediated NMDA receptor signaling.
