This edited volume includes seven chapters, each detailing recent advancements in the field of neuroscience. Chapter One evaluates the role of several factors, including health system barriers, cultural beliefs and knowledge of Alzheimer’s disease in predicting help-seeking intentions for early symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease among American Indians and Alaska Natives. Chapter Two examines the utility of transcranial magnetic stimulation to support and predict the clinical diagnosis of the most common neurodegenerative dementias. Chapter Three discusses the results of migraine-candidate gene association studies conducted in the last three decades. Chapter Four reviews the history, types, indications, benefits, and complications of telemetric intracranial pressure monitoring. Chapter Five reviews the current concepts on pathophysiologic mechanisms involved in the development of neurogenic pulmonary edema and discusses the associated clinical and therapeutic aspects. Chapter Six follows the evolution of the dopamine receptor blocking agent medication class and the consequential changes in our knowledge of dopamine’s role in psychotic disorders. Finally, Chapter Seven describes patient selection criteria, diagnostic work-up, medical management and surgical techniques for patients with recurrent strokes secondary to steno-occlusive cerebrovascular disease.
