Series: Horizons in Neuroscience Research
BISAC: MED057000

This book provides readers with the latest developments in neuroscience research. Topics covered include patient and nerve selection, review techniques, risks, benefits and alternatives to C2 and RFA ablation; early diagnosis and treatment in multiple sclerosis using ultrashort echo time (UTE) magnetic resonance imaging; the use of regenerative medicine to help patients with ataxia; genetic and clinical characteristics of spinocerebellar ataxias; white matter abnormalities in neurodegenerative disease; cell to cell propoagation of pathogenic tau which may be involved in certain neurodegenerative disorders; the use of cannabis in neurology and psychiatry and its potential effects; deep brain stimulation for treating neuropsychiatric disorders; and the symptoms, anesthetic management and potential complications of Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease.
