This book provides readers with the latest developments in neurosciences research. Chapter One reports on how neural network learning is possible in patients who are not conscious including patients in the vegetative state. Chapter Two is written for educational therapists who are working with ASD cases and the aim is twofold. Firstly, it is to raise the awareness among educational therapists on current neuroscientific studies on the autistic brain and its ASCs (and hence, ASD). Secondly, it is to inform how the findings from these neuroimaging studies can be translated into praxiological implications in autism treatment plan design for educational therapists. Chapter Three studies the postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) in patients after cardiac surgeries along with extensive review of the literature in this field.

At least three types of POCD may be outlined, and therefore tests sensitive to each type of POCD should be included into test batteries. Chapter Four integrates the results of prior publications and recent additional findings providing indications for a functional cross-interlocking of inter- and intramuscular sequencing patterns as a fundamental principle to enhance human movement´s efficiency. Chapter Five reports on strabismus which is the most frequent ocular surgery performed in childhood and requires anesthesia that provides akinesia, analgesia, and sometimes ocular hypotonia, to adjust sutures. Chapter Six studies the posterodorsal medial amygdala (MePD) which is involved in the display of reproductive behavior in both male and female rats. Further studies demonstrated that it also integrates a subcortical ‘social behavior network’ with additional, but selective modulatory roles. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
