Horizons in Neuroscience Research. Volume 50


Andres Costa and Eugenio Villalba (Editors)

Series: Horizons in Neuroscience Research
BISAC: MED057000

This volume contains twelve chapters that detail neuroscience research. Chapter One aims to describe some of the most relevant therapeutic strategies in the clinical stage to reduce the burden of neonatal brain injury. Chapter Two discusses how α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid (AMPA) receptors represent a novel and potentially-improved approach to dampening uncontrolled excitatory neural transmission in neurology and psychiatry. Chapter Three studies the effects of visual stimulus orientation difference on visual event-related potential components (VERP) in healthy humans. Chapter Four summarizes the current investigation of new biomarkers in the field of neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy and cerebral palsy. Chapter Five analyzes sleep patterns in relation to the administration of carbamazepine in patients with epilepsy. Chapter Six presents the role the neuro-immune axis plays in spleen immunology. Chapter Seven provides a comprehensive overview of the present theories of etiopathogenesis, clinical features, diagnostic modalities, management and follow up of NPH patients. Chapter Eight discusses the relationship of childhood strabismus and the basic topology of neuronal chromosomes in LF17. Chapter Nine details chronotherapeutic drug delivery. Chapter Ten establishes a relatively quick and easy protocol for the isolation of glioblastoma cells from brain biopsies with a high yield and low risk for contamination. Chapter Eleven reviews the effects of WiFi on cognitive function. Lastly, Chapter Twelve reviews the effects of the enriched environment in bringing about neural plasticity.
